A mix of unsigned senior sleepers and dozens of mostly nationally unknown underclassmen around the Southeast and Virginia regions gathered in Lexington, South Carolina for Phenom Hoops SC 150 camp.
Lexington, South Carolina, Some of these youngsters will be on the national radar in a matter of time, other unsigned sleepers will be late additions with upside for college programs, in need of firepower late in the 2019 cycle. Lets breakdown some of these young studs who stole the show Sunday!
No. 101, 6’1 Bailey Wiseman (James Island Charter)-
Wiseman was voted top playmaker at the entire event, this kid could be one to watch for in South Carolina. Wiseman has the rock on a string, he definitely has some ankle bully in his game. Wiseman has next level vision and he’s a gifted passer, he fools the defense with his eyes, Wiseman has the no look in his bag.
He drops dimes with precision and accuracy, as a lead guard Wiseman sees the entire floor and makes life easy for guys around him. If you’re a fan of passing Wiseman is a show.
No. 126, 6’4 2019 Jasaun Pryor (Pinewood Prep)
Pryor looked polished offensively, he made shots off the dribble consistently from mid range and was really effective in the lane. Pryor has a long first step and his length allows him to finish over smaller defenders. Pryor does a good job of keeping defenders on his hip when attacking the cup, Pryor also got hot from deep he’s a capable three point shooter. When Pryor was off ball he was prepared to catch and release.
Throughout camp Pryor created plays for himself and teammates, defensively Pryor doesn’t gamble he worked to keep his man in front. Pryor has the ability to play either guard position, his scoring, size, and, versatility, will be valued at the next level. All South Carolina Division two’s and low major division ones should have Pryor on their radar.
No. 91, 5’11 2020 Tyrell Bing (Irmo High)
Bing is another pass first floor general in a loaded 2020 South Carolina cycle, the kid has an unselfish demeanor and plays with an edge. Bing was smart with the basketball and tossed out dimes with flair, Bing has an extremely tight handle if the defense presses up too much he will blow by. Bing is effective in space he’s very aware on the break and will thread the needle, Bing can also create for himself off the dribble he shot the ball with confidence Sunday.
On the floor Bing was a vocal leader, he will make sure all his guys are in the right spot. On defense Bing called out screens and switches. Bing is an extremely pesky defender at 5’11, he will harass the opposition.
No. 142, 6’5 2020 Lucas Heckaman (Nation Ford)
Heckaman will surprise a lot of people around SC this season in my opinion, the 6’5 wing displayed a nice blend of athleticism and energy. Heckaman is going to give everything on both ends, Heckaman scored effectively in the paint, he established position well on the block and showed finesse around the basket. Heckaman is what we call “sneaky athletic” he flashes the bounce in spurts but when Heckaman takes off watch out.
Heckaman also had the hops on display for shot blocking purposes, he sent several shots into the stands and even pinned a layup attempt to the backboard. Heckman has the skill set to play and guard multiple positions, he’s really just scratching the surface on his game it seems.
No. 109, 2020 6’2 Marc Haight (Phillip Simmons)
Haight is my sleeper pick of the camp because at the beginning many members of our staff were unfamiliar with him, but by closing time the crew was very familiar with Mr. Haight. The 6’2 combo guard out of Charleston was devastating off the dribble, Haight defenders struggled to stay in front of him. At times Haight got to the rack effortlessly, he’s got a sharp crossover and a plethora of iso moves to create space.
Haight got creative in the lane around the basket, and he finished stronger as the day went. No matter the level of competition Haight elevated to the challenge, he literally slipped past defenders, when they closed down Haight exploited cracks and found open teammates. Haight is a flashy passer but he isn’t careless with the rock.
No. 115, 6’2 2021 Jaden Scott ( James Island Charter)- Skilled combo guard with a nice feel for the game, showed real ability to get to the cup. Scott showed patience and poise with the basketball, he’s got nice body control Scott hangs in the air to evade defenders for creative finishes.
No. 54, 5’11 2019 Josh Gooding (Goldsboro) – Hard nosed lead guard with a non stop motor on both ends. Gooding is a dog on the floor, he comes through the lane hard and embraces contact. Gooding is a natural leader he’s a guy other players will enjoy teaming up with.
No. 99, 6’0 2021 Tyler Schaafsma (Bishop England) – Was an absolute spark plug off the bench for his side, he came into the game and immediately had an impact. Schaafsma ate up the glass and collected clean up points. Schaafsma converted at a high percentage at the rim, defensively Schaafsma was locked in every game.
