Phenom Hoops previews each team participating in the NC Top 80. We check out Team 7 here.

Team 7

The Name

6’1” Junior Jalen Harris (Word of God) – Harris is a familiar name to basketball fans. He has picked up around five (5) offers and his mixtapes have garnered hundreds of thousands views. Harris is jet quick in the open court. He has a second gear that many don’t, and sneaky explosion that puts him above the rim regularly. Look for the Top 80 alum to garner a lot of Oos and Ahhs

The Dog

6’1 Junior Robert Colon (Jacksonville Northside) – Colon is tough, plain and simple. His mentality not only lends itself to statistical production, but also production in the win column. This season, Colon led his team to a 25-2 record and an appearance in the Eastern Final Four. He averaged 18 points, 3 assists, and 2 steals per outing.

The Player to Watch

6’6” Junior Jaylan McManus (North Mecklenburg) – People may not know this name just yet, but they should go ahead and familiarize with it. He carries seven (7) offers, from the likes of Charleston, Wilmington, Georgia Southern, and Marshall. McManus is a high motor, lengthy forward who just gets the job done. Look for his recruitment to continue to grow as more see him.

The Breakout

6’7” Sophomore Zaire Williams (Winston Salem Prep) – Williams is a large frame and someone that produces, especially rebounding the ball. Williams has a high motor, and a want and willingness to affect the paint. Williams is a hard worker as evident in the transformation of his body from last year to this one. As he continues to improve his footwork and loosen his hips, look for Williams to continue to get more and more love.

The Knockdown

6’4 Junior Kobe Williams (West Charlotte) – Williams fell a little behind the curve as he missed most of last season with injury. He came back this year with a chip on his shoulder. He played with a high motor, crashed the boards and defending the paint. On offense, his game is predicated by the long range shot. He has great touch, and likes especially that corner 3.

The Human Highlight

6’4 Junior Devontae Barker (Faith Assembly) – Plain and simple Barker assaults the rims. He has a strong, football like, frame and great explosion. Barker has a confidence around the basket that allows him to go up and try to dunk on any and every one in his way. Make sure the cameras are rolling when he is on the court.

The Young Buck

6’3” Freshman Andy Pack (Northern Guilford) – Pack is skilled and has confidence beyond his years. He has nice range out beyond the arc and a nice attack from the wing that gets him into the lane and to the rim. He is a multiple level scorer, has the ability to dunk on you, and good court awareness.
