2009 NC Adidas JR Phenom 150 Camp

1 Comment

North Carolina Adidas Junior Phenom 150 Camp

Forsyth Country Day School

Lewisville, NC

October 24, 2009

This past weekend I traveled down to beautiful North Carolina to check out the Adidas 150 Phenom Camp. There was a nice amount of talent scattered throughout the different gyms on Forsyth Country Day School campus. The event was very well organized and ran on-time which is always a great plus when going and covering these type of events.

I posted a short video highlight of some of the action on my youtube page called Premo Hoops. This is the link to the video

Some of the top talent in this event included:

Will Saunders (NW Guilford HS, NC) 6’4 (SG) Class of 2010

Saunders was a very impressive athlete at this event using his athleticism to score a ton of buckets. He consistently scores on high flying dunks throughout the showcase along with a smooth looking jumper out beyond the arc. He plays with a ton of energy on both ends of the floor, well also doing a good job on the boards.

Andrew White (Thomas Dale HS, VA) 6’5 (SG) Class of 2011

White is a very long athletic combo between shooting guard and wing. He is a big time leaper and shot blocker. He also scores in many different ways from a smooth mid-range jumper to in the post with his back to the basket. White is also very aggressive on the boards and sees the floor well. He is a little under the radar right now as national recruitment stands but look for him to blow up in the near future. More

1 Comment

Waverly AustinI had a chance to catch up with Waverly Austin from Dallas, TX in the class of 2010 last night to get an update on how the recruiting process is going for him.

At 6’10/235lbs Austin is a good athlete who runs the floor well and does a good job crashing the boards on both ends. He finishes strong inside and has a nice touch out to the mid-range. On the defensive end he blocks or alters a lot of shots with his leaping ability.

WA: Georgetown, Florida State, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Arkansas and Florida International.

PHR: What schools have offered?
WA: Florida International but I believe many of the others will soon.

PHR: What are you looking for in a college?
WA: I want early playing time and academics are important to me.

PHR: Did you have a dream school growing up?
WA: Yes Georgetown, which I am taking an official visit there this weekend.

PHR: Do you have a timetable for when you will commit?
WA: I want to make my decision before the basketball season starts.
