Here are some names that stood out to Phenom Hoops Patrick O'Brien at the NC Top 80

There was a ton of talent at the NC Top 80, as it was one of the deepest events that we have had at Phenom Hoops.  Division I talent on almost every court throughout the day, that there were several guys that caught the eye of our scouts.

Here are just a few thoughts going down the list of the NC Top 80.

Christian Bailey (2020, Statesville Christian): Bailey has the size and talent to really be a big time player in the state of North Carolina.

Kenyon Burt (2018, Garner): Continues to amaze me that programs are taking a look at him.  Simply produces and does everything on the court.

Jordan Love (2018, Voyager): Really enjoy watching this kid score the ball with his length.  Doesn’t hold a lot of weight but plays big-time.

Samuel Okauru (2018, NRCA): Kid can score and play. Strong guard that attacks and finishes at the rim.  Showed also that he can be a consistent threat outside.

Gavin Rains (2019, Wheatmore): Rains just does it all.  Scores, rebounds, collects 50/50 balls, provides extra possessions.  Coaches dream

Tre Turner (2018, NW Guilford): Turner is a flat out leader and shot maker from deep.  Doesn’t get recognition he deserves.

Imajae Dodd (2019, Green Central): Dodd could be a talent.  Really well built, super athletic, and a solid low post player.

Jack Hemphill (2018, Ravenscroft): Hemphill really was a great low-post player that stretches the floor with his short consistent jumper

Elijah McCadden (2018, Greenfield): Guard with superb wingspan. When he gets in that attack mode, he is troubling to stop and very good rebounding guard.

William Onyeodi (2019, Fayetteville Academy): Onyeodi has a football stature that runs the floor well and is a strong physical presence.

Shawn Walker (2019, Wesleyan Academy): Walker is a big, 6’6 point guard that displayed his ability to score and dish out to teammates at a high-level.

Greg Gant (2019, Trinity Christian): Gant is one of the best athletes in the state as he rises up with ease and is trouble defensively and on the boards.

Jayden Gardner (2018, Heritage): Simply tough and underrated.  Nothing will stop him from producing and he deserves the credit he has displayed.

Silas Mason (2020, Smith): lengthy 6’7 prospect that is versatile on the court but still has room to grow into his game.

Justin McKoy (2019, Panther Creek): McKoy is a special 6’7 prospect that can shoot the ball so well for his size and is a mismatch on the court.

Day’ron Sharpe (2020, South Central): young man caught the eye of all out guys and has the chance to be a real player in the nation

Aaron Cash (2018, Word of God): Strength is there, athleticism is there, and flat out has a motor on him.
