6:00 PM Vs. Cannon School
People come out to basketball events to watch the stars play. In the recruiting world, you cannot get more stars by your name than five. Fortunately for the 5th Annual Phenom’s National High School Showcase, set to take place at Greensboro Day School on November 16-17, we will have six players who are ranked among the nation’s very best in their classes.
We are going to go over each individual five-star, let you know how they play, who is recruiting them and why you need to be courtside to watch each one.
Let’s start with 6’10” junior, Isaiah Todd. Todd is ranked #8 in the 2020 class by ESPN and USA Today and is a consensus 5-star across the board. As his ranking would suggest, he carries offers from a who’s who of college programs including the likes of North Carolina, Kansas, Villanova, NC State, Clemson, Virginia, UCLA, Florida State, Vanderbilt and many others.
Todd has been a stalwart with the USA junior National team having been a member of the u16 National team that captured the Gold Medal in the FIBA U16 Americas Championship. He also has participated in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 USA Men’s Junior National Team October Minicamp. This minicamp brings together the country’s best players, regardless of class, to participate in Colorado Springs with and against one another.
Todd was named a Max Preps freshman All-American and continues to be considered one of the best NBA prospects in high school basketball. He will be playing at 8 PM on Friday, November 16 at Greensboro Day School.
Why You Need to See Him:
Todd is a future One and Done Blue Blood prospect, is a modern day, playmaking forward. He is able to defend multiple positions, due to his length and incredible timing. He is a high level shot blocker and is able to move his feet as he sits on perimeter guys. Offensively, he has a full arsenal to be able to score at each level, either off the catch or creating for himself off the bounce. He has a full array of on court skills, which is tantalizing with his size, athleticism and length.
What They’re Saying:
Jason Jordan (USA Today)
“Isaiah Todd being the best player on the floor is no shock: he’s also the most energetic player on the floor. Don’t let that correlation go over your head…”
Corey Evans (Rivals.com)
“…it would be safe to say Todd is a Top-5 prospect. He has shades of a young Kevin Garnett within his game thanks to his developing alpha-dog mentality, skill set out of the mid (and high) post regions on the floor and mobility.”
Evan Daniels (FS1 College Basketball Insider)
“(You) won’t find many prospects in high school hoops better than 2020 power forward Isaiah Todd. Lethal scorer at 6’9”. Very impressive footwork.”
