Sunday Standouts Phenom Summer Havoc

5’10 2019 Reginald Walton Team ENC- Reginald was a point guard that a lot of coaches would love to have for many reasons. My favorite thing about him is that if you watch him play he makes winning play after winning play for his team on both ends of the floor. He is an undoubted leader and a winner. I was talking to one of my fellow phenom scouts and he called him “The best leader in the whole...

Georgia Flight 6’0 ’20 Cameron Carithers- The lead guard was a big contributor in this contest, and nearly won the game with his heady play in the second half.

NC Flames 6’0 ’20 Tyrese McNeal- There were multiple guys...

Sunday Morning Standouts at Phenom Summer Havoc

Higher Level Premiere 6’4 ’19 Alexander Fitch- The first game of the day was a quality stage for Fitch to perform on; he shot the ball incredible well from distance and would’ve made even more three-pointers if he wasn’t in foul trouble.
