Players D1s Need to See (Part 1)
Phenom’s Southern Jam (July 28-30)
By Jamie Shaw

The Phenom Hoops platform brings in major names, the names that everyone in the country talks about. However, the major part of the platform is the spotlight our platform puts on players people don’t talk about yet. Phenom’s Southern Jam is the last travel ball event of the 2017 season. Phenom Hoops will have over 100 teams coming in from 9 different states (North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, and Pennsylvania). Everyone of these teams will be performing on the Phenom Hoops Platform.

Our track record speaks for itself, so when coaches hear us suggest for them to come watch a player they make the effort to do so. Here is part 1 of D1 prospects Coaches will want to see July 28-30.

Price goes out and makes plays on both ends of the floor. The 2-way lengthy and athletic player plays with a great pace. He shot the ball well in the mid range and is a high academic student.
