Phenom Hoop Report showcased 80 of the top NC underclassmen at Prohelific Park. I wish the camp was two days long so that I could have scouted every single player. Here’s a list of prospects that caught my eye.

Harry Giles, 6’9 2016 at Wesleyan: No, Harry did not participate but he showed up with his 6’9 210 frame … such a great kid with an outstanding personality … interacted with players and coaches like he was playing, that’s a sign of a leader on and off the floor … humble and hungry … Sky is the limit …

Chazz Surratt, 6’3 2016 at East Lincoln: Lefty point guard with a soft stroke … Reminds of a bigger, stronger and fast Kendall Marshall that can shoot … Has solid frame for his age (almost intimidating for his age) … Stars at quarterback (scored 63 touchdowns last season) and basketball … Holds a 4.7 GPA … High D-1 Prospect in football and basketball … Take your pick kid …

Quayson Williams, 6’1 2015 at Eastern Guilford: Complete scorer … One of the best strokes at the camp … Super tough kid that does not back down to top notch competition … Finishes with either hand around the rim … Puts up points in bunches … Can play on and off the ball …

Jalen Harris, 6’1 2016 at Greenfield: True PG … Sneaky explosiveness (He threw down a tomahawk dunk in traffic) … Reminds of Tyler Ennis … Has the ability to score on every possession but involves his teammates … Shots the 3 well … Makes difficult passes look easy …
