6’7 Landon Johnson (High Point Christian)
Landon came into the NC Phenom 150 camp with little fanfare, but his play quickly elevated his status as one to watch in the deep NC 2023 class. We’re talking about a strong, lengthy and skilled power forward that can create a mismatch with his ability to post up or step out and knock down perimeter jumpers. In addition, Johnson was a model of consistency on both ends of the court. Johnson averaged 11 PPG and grabbed numerous rebounds.
5’9 Hanif Omar (Jordan High School)
Hanif Omar only averaged 7.5 PPG, and was named the camp MVP for the 2023 class. First of all, we’re talking about a tough “on the ball” defender that made a huge impact with his quickness, athleticism, and ability to create havoc on the defensive end of the court. In addition, we were equally impressed with his ball-handling skills, court vision and timely passes off the dribble.
6’0 Omar Banks (Apex High School)
Omar Banks enjoyed a solid all-around performance. Simply put, Banks did a little bit of everything well. He scored, rebounded well for his size/position, defended extremely well, and made one hustle play after another.
6’1 Darius Caldwell (Glenn High School)
Effort, energy and enthusiasm were the calling card for Darius Caldwell. We’ talking about a strong, athletic and two-way combo guard that can make a difference without scoring a lot of points.
5’9 Casian Richard (Winston-Salem Christian)
Casian Richard is a cerebral and passer friendly floor general that has tight handles, excellent court vision and ability to make advance reads and passes. The creative and cagey guard has a nice flair and moxy to his game.
