It has been quite a rapid ascent for 6’3” rising junior Devontae Shuler. You first heard his name at the 2014 Phenom Summer Havoc and ever since then he has done nothing but get better and better.

Now, as first reported by Phenom Hoop Report, Shuler will transfer to famed Oak Hill Academy. This is a big move for the rising junior as he spent his first two years of high school playing at Irmo. Shuler’s brother DJ said, “This is where the top talent should be, so that you guys are able to really evaluate. We aren’t backing down from competition, Devontae is going right after it.”

During his sophomore year at Irmo High School Shuler averaged 23 points, 5 boards, and 4 assists per game. Shuler gets into the paint with relative ease, but is very team oriented in mentality, “I’m best at beating my man off the dribble and getting to the basket. As long as my team wins, that’s what matters.”

As we mentioned above, we have watched Shuler progress over the years during multiple events. After Shuler played in last Fall’s NC Phenom 150 camp where we stated, “Perhaps no one took as much advantage of this Phenom Platform as Devontae Shuler. On paper he had a tough day, matching up in each game with kids who have already created national reputations. The common thread through the event is that Devontae came out on top of each of these matchups. Camp Coach Marcus Stevenson stated, “Devontae is a high level basketball player with a great attitude.” Devontae capped off the day with a 33 point outburst with 5 threes, we expect him to start tracking on a national level soon”

Shuler carries offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Southern Cal, Stephen F Austin, and Wofford. We at Phenom Hoops ranks Shuler has the number 1 player in South Carolinas loaded 2017 class. ESPN recently ranked Shuler number 27 in the country.
