This coming weekend, Phenom Hoop Report will be heading to Winston-Salem, North Carolina for our first annual CP3 Live Tournament. Our staff will be teaming up with NBA All-Star Chris Paul to put on an event unlike any other. Over 60 teams from across five different states will be making their way to the Twin City to showcase their talents to a plethora of college coaches at all levels. One player to keep an eye on in particular' Andrew Corum of Hoop Hill.

Watching Andrew Corum’s progression throughout the year has been an absolute blast. When we first scouted this young gun in early December against VES in Lynchburg, VA, we immediately fell in love with his game. After an impressive showing, we invited Andrew to our first annual Virginia Top 80 Camp in Norfolk, VA, and he proved to us that he was the real deal. Corum is a strong, lengthy player that has the ability to score from all angles. Whether it’s the deep three, a mid-range jumper, or a Ginobli like Euro-Step, he can do it all. Although Corum is only 6’6”, he isn’t afraid to matchup with any opposing competition. He uses his absurd bounce to play with some of Virginia’s most talented players. Corum is a fantastic rebounder and has phenomenal court vision that gives him the ability to play all positions on the floor. One thing that we loved in particular was his extraordinarily high basketball IQ. Whenever his squad needs a big time play, Corum is always there to deliver. He’s smart with the ball, creates space, and always manages to find open teammates. If he isn’t posting up and battling defenders in the post, Corum works the ball around and always tries to find an open man. On the defensive side, Corum is a hoss. He can guard any position on the floor and uses his strength and long arms to lockup his opponents. Corum blocks shots, forces steals, and isn’t afraid to draw a charge. Corum is explosive and can finish at the rim with either hand. After a successful season this past year, Corum was named the VISAA D3 State Player of the Year. He led his Dragons’ squad to a state title, and caught the attention of many scouts throughout the Virginia area. Corum is the type of player that everyone loves to play with. His sole purpose is to make the players around him better, and to have fun in the process. Hoop Hill is a very underrated squad. If Corum can catch fire and find a way to create plays, we wouldn’t be surprised if his team made a little noise in Winston-Salem this weekend. Coaches and scouts, pay close attention to this Middleburg star. Corum is being heavily recruited by several Big South and CAA schools and has the potential to blow up in the coming months. Our advice' Get on him quick. He’s definitely one of the most interesting players in attendance.
