Let’s get right to it, here are some players to watch from this morning’s action at #PhenomSummerHavoc
6’4 2019 Quinten Thomas: Upward Stars Charlotte
Thomas was sensational this morning for his squad providing tons of energy, athleticism, and leadership out there. He’s really explosive off both one and two feet with an innate ability to make acrobatic plays at timely moments for his squad. He’s incredibly strong giving him the ability to guard up to four positions at times, making him incredibly versatile and valuable on the defensive end of the floor. There’s never a dull moment with Thomas on the court, be sure to watch out for him for the rest of the week with Upward Stars Charlotte.
6’6 2022 Jeremy Gregory: Team Loaded 2022
Gregory is a black hole on the glass, grabbing 95% of the rebounds he has even a sliver of a chance of grabbing. He’s got the potential to be an instant double-double guy in high school next year as a freshman with super polished footwork on the block as well. He’s got a chance to be one of the best rebounders in the Hoop State in the coming years. He plays with a steady attitude, never wavering despite a hard fought W against Team Xplosion, showing an ability to handle pressure and overcome adversity which is something this Loaded team doesn’t face too often.
5’10 2019 Bryson Childress: Team Denver
Childress is as steady as they come at the point guard position, great vision, a really good shooter, and a tenacity that a lot of guys don’t bring on each and every possession. He knows his limitations, but still plays with a high level of confidence regardless of the competition. You can tell he plays every game like it’s his last, he’s an excellent asset to any team with that deep range and ability to run a team. He’s doing a great job under the tutelage of Bobby Lutz this week. Childress is definitely one to watch for the rest of the week with Team Denver.
6’0 2019 Nevante Johnson: Team Carolina Asheville
Johnson is a lightning quick lead guard with that knows how to produce at a high level. He’s comfortable on or off the ball, but he’s so deadly on dribble drives that you almost want him on the ball. He possesses a nice ability to kick out and find shooters and pass out of the P&R. His quick first step gives him that extra room to operate off the bounce leading to plenty of opportunities for him and his teammates.
