Each and every time Phenom Hoops 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: Cooper Kowalski
Class: 2024
Committed to: Charleston Southern

What Has Been Said:

“6’8 ‘24 Cooper Kowalski (Charleston Raptors) continues to stand out. Skilled post with IQ, touch, and a quality two-way motor. Pursues rebounds hard, alters shots defensively, and runs the floor properly in transition. Great cutter. Scores in various ways.”

“6’8 2024 Cooper Kowalski (Charleston Raptors) should be a priority for D1 programs. Nice touch around the basket & feel for the game. Can space the floor. Good footwork, mobile. Utilizes length well to altar shots.”

“Kowalski plays with tremendous energy and motor, looking to outwork players in a variety of areas, being a fluid prospect in being able to finish through contact and at the rim, and simply looks to attack the glass and create extra opportunities. He offers a lot on the court and his energy/ work ethic will certainly shine on the court, as he walked away with the SCISA 4A Region III Player of the Year and recorded several impressive showings throughout the year.”

“Due to their slew of enticing prospects, the Charleston Raptors (formerly TMP) were easily among the most intriguing teams on display. This certainly includes Cooper Kowalski—who was arguably the top performer at Summer Havoc. At 6-foot-8, he’s a skilled forward/post prospect with an excellent combination of IQ, length, and fluidity. Kowalski is a very polished offensive weapon and highlighted the ability to be utilized in various different ways. He displayed touch (with both hands) and athleticism when finishing around the basket, but also looked comfortable making passes or hitting jumpers from the high post area. Kowalski is a quality screener who appears comfortable rolling to the basket or popping out to space the floor from beyond the arc. He plays well through contact, especially given his wiry build, and is tougher than he initially seems. Although Kowalski shined as an offensive piece, he was also memorable on the glass and defensive end of the floor. He displayed great timing as a rebounder and rim-protector, showing an understanding of rotations, positioning, and how to consistently outwork opponents. Kowalski runs the floor well in transition and makes himself available to score by simply filling the lane. He showcased a lot of favorable qualities throughout his time at Summer Havoc and should be a target for various types of Division I programs going forward.”
