These juniors put on a show at the NC Phenom 150 at Forsyth County Day

NC Phenom 150 Exposure Camp Standouts
Class of 2016

The great thing about the NC Phenom 150 Platform is that anyone can come to show out. The reputation is known throughout the region that this camp is the region’s launching pad, the bar for talent. If you do well at the NC Phenom 150, you know you can play.

Here are a few 11th graders (2016) that not only showed up, but also showed out.

6’4” Brian McElveen– Elite Skills Academy (Winston Salem, NC)

McElveen turned a lot of heads in camp. It isn’t every day that you see a kid with the length of McElveen and the skills to handle the point guard position. McElveen did just this, he has a great handle of the ball and played with a nice pace. McElveen will be playing in the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’7” Jacob Skidmore – Kings Mountain (Kings Mountain, NC)

Skidmore walks into the gym and doesn’t necessarily pass the look test. However, he does have great length and timing.

Skidmore has a propensity for shot blocking and deflections both on the ball and on the weak side. Skidmore can make shots with range off the catch, and also showed the ability to rise up and finish above the rim.

As Skidmore continues to add weight, the 4.0 student will only get better. Skidmore will participate in the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’8” Parker Julian – Charlotte Latin (Charlotte)

Julian is skilled, very skilled in fact. He plays very well in pick and pop situations, and he is also able to be used at the high post to run cutters off of. In this event, Julian scored 18 points per game mixing in 3-pointers and mid-range jump shots. Julian, a high academic student, will be playing at the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’4” Trejon Jacob – Millbrook (Raleigh)

Jacob had a great high school season. He locked into the 6th man for a Millbrook High School team that finished 28-3 on the year.

He played good defense, and showed himself to be a shot maker, with deep range and a soft lefty touch. In camp, he did nothing to dispel his reputation as a shooter, but he showed the ability to make plays for others here. He showed great vision, seeing the floor in the open court and half court settings.

With his play at camp, Jacob earned an invited to the North Carolina Top 80 camp on March 28.

6’4” Devante Barker – Faith Assembly (Durham)

This was our first viewing of Barker, and boy did he make a lasting impression. Everything in Barker’s game screams power. He sports a strong body, like that of a middle linebacker. When he dunks the ball, which is often, he leaves the rims shaking for multiple possession.

When Barker engages on defense, he has quick hands and good ability to defend the wing. Barker averaged 26.3 Points in camp and earned an invite to the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’3” Marshall Lange – Westchester Day (High Point)

Lange came to a couple of our AAU events last summer, playing with this NC Gaters team. Lange has since transferred to Westchester Country Day, and coming off a year that saw him average 18 Points and 6.5 Assists per game.

Lange is a lengthy point guard that has a sense of the flair in the open court. He made shots at multiple levels, getting into the lane with his head up and making great reads. At camp, he averaged 16 points and earned an invite to the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’2” Zavian Jackson – Burlington Cummings (Burlington, NC)

Our first viewing of Jackson came at Session 2 of last Fall’s NC Phenom 150. Then, we walked out of the gym talking about his high wire antics. Jackson walked into the gym in this camp, and did pretty much the same.

Jackson averaged 22 Points per game, with a game high of 28. With his performance here, Jackson earned an invite to the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.

6’1 Jack Konstanzer – First Flight (Outer Banks, NC)

In these type situations it is tough for shooters to get touches. So, as expected, Konstanzer went through his spells in camp. That said, he was able to really get rolling for spurts when he did get the ball. During the season, Konstanzer averaged close to 30 Points per game.

In Konstanzer’s 2nd and 3rd games he scored 15 and 16 points respectively. The kid is a high IQ scorer, who can create for himself or score off the catch. Don’t sleep on him or he will have 20 before the half. Konstanzer will be participating in the North Carolina Top 80 on March 28.
