Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Cam Hayes
Committed to: NC State
What does NC State get:
“Not only do the Wolfpack get one of the top prospects in the state of North Carolina but a national prospect as well. Hayes brings incredible length and size to the table for a prospect that can play off the ball but also initiate the offense as a point guard. He has a great feel for the game and excels in pick and roll situations, while also showcasing a knockdown jumper from all levels. It was a great get securing a Top-50 prospect that was also an in-state recruit, something that could go a long way down the road.” – Patrick O’Brien
“NC State is getting a high upside lead guard that does a great job understanding reads out of pick and roll situations. He has great length, athleticism, and can really shoot the ball. Hayes checks a lot of boxes for NC State recruiting wise with Coach Keatts’ pick and roll offense. He is also an in-state recruit as well as a Top-50 prospect, one that the staff had to fight for and won. A great stylistic paring as well as an in-state battle with several schools.” – Jamie Shaw
What high school coach Jeff Smith said:
“He is a great teammate and a hard worker. He has the ability to dictate the pace on both ends of the floor. He can create his own shot but does a terrific job of getting everyone involved and making the right play.:
What was said by Phenom Hoops in the past:
“Cam Hayes is going to be in the national conversation as one of the elite point guards in his class. He has the complete package as a high major point guard. Length, athleticism, advanced skill and impeccable feel for the game. Watch his stock explode nationally.” – Rick Lewis in 2018
“Hayes was a name that Phenom Hoops wanted to watch, to see his level of competitiveness with some of the best on the floor. Hayes didn’t disappoint and caught the eyes of many. He displayed a high level of maturity at the point guard position, being able to initiate the offense, run it smoothly in the halfcourt setting, but also finding a way to score the basketball on his own. His pull-up jumper was deadly throughout as well, picking his moments and spots to get to the lane and rise up over defenders.” – Phenom Staff from NBA Top 80
“Hayes has a unique blend of athleticism, length, and skill, not to mention tremendous poise and maturity. Hayes has the ability to be an effective two-way player and will be an important member of another talented Freddy Johnson team and has the ability to become a stellar defensive player, not to mention one of the top playmakers in the country. His stock is going to quickly rise!” – Rick Lewis in 2018 from CP3 Elite Guard Camp
