Phenom Showcase: Top performers

Recruiting wrap: Signed with Mississippi State.
Performance: The No. 94 player in 2016 outplayed his ranking at the Phenom Showcase. Wright drained jumpers from deep, but it was his increased strength and explosiveness off the dribble and at the rim that stood out. He's benn the least celebrated prospect in MSU's top five recruiting class and looks like a steal.
Deshawn Corprew
Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy
Recruiting wrap: Just decommitted from Arkansas Little-Rock.
Performance: A physical, take-no-prisoners wing, Corprew was a stud. He hit some jumpers, but it was mostly his toughness off the dribble that stood out. He has added a nice floater and has a body ready for college contact. Expect his recruitment to take off now that the four-star is back on the market.
Juwan Gary (2019)
Columbia (S.C.) Gray Collegiate
Recruiting wrap: South Carolina, Connecticut, Clemson have been in to see him.
Performance: A 6-foot-5 freshman with a great basketball body, above average athleticism and a non-stop motor, it's hard to believe Gary won't turn 15 until February. He hit some deep shots and has the look of a potentially big-time transition player.
Mario Kegler
Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Mississippi State.
Performance: "Biscuit" was feeling it with his jumper and it is clear he's put in some serious work with his long range shooting. At 6-foot-7 with a strong body, he can also finish on the interior and has to be careful not to neglect that aspect of his game.
John Fulkerson
Arden (N.C.) Christ School
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Tennessee.
Performance: The three-star lefty impressed with his mobility, motor and versatility. He did a great job of catching, facing and then attacking the rim off the dribble and finishing with athleticism. His jumper looked workable and he is best classified as a combo forward.
Braxton Key
Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Alabama.
Performance: A skilled combo forward, Key did the bulk of his damage at the rim in transition and from the low block in halfcourt settings. Key can handle the ball, showed off his alert passing and did solid work on the glass.
Harold Baruti
Grundy (Va.) Mountain Mission
Recruiting wrap: Offers from SMU and UNC Wilmington.
Performance: There aren't a lot of quality wing options left for upper-end mid- to high-major programs, but Baruti fits the bill. He's tough as they come, showed that he can hit enough from deep to keep defenders honest and he is very good on the glass and as a transition scorer.
Justice Kithcart
Lynchburg (Va.) Virginia Episcopal
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Pittsburgh.
Performance: The Pitt-bound Kithcart did an excellent job of scoring the ball and looking for his own offense. In ball screens, he looked to turn the corner and get to the rim or pull up for mid-range jumpers. He is a willing passer, but sometimes missed open teammates because he was turning the corner off those ball screens with his head down.
Michael Okauru (2017)
Raleigh (N.C.) Ravenscroft
Recruiting wrap: Offer from Rutgers. Virginia, Wake Forest and others have shown interest.
Performance: A good-looking combo guard with 6-foot-3 size, long arms and plus athleticism, Okauru was very effective in transition. If left open, he showed the confidence to pull-up for 15-foot jumpers and he made a few three-pointers as well. A three-star prospect, he'll be one to monitor closely for high-major programs.
Nate Hinton (2018)
Charlotte (N.C.) Northside Christian
Recruiting wrap: Offer from Wofford. Virginia and others interested.
Performance: A three-star shooting guard with 6-foot-4 size and good athleticism, Hinton was a very nice find. He looked very good running the baseline, curling off of screens, catching and hitting deep jumpers. He can already finish through some contact. He looks to be right on that mid/high major border.
Grant Williams
Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Tennessee.
Performance: Williams is a bit undersized at around 6-foot-6, but he played with tremendous energy and toughness. What is most impressive about him is how strong his hands are. Several times, he simply took rebounds right away from bigger players because his hands were simply stronger.
Devon Dotson (2018)
Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day
Recruiting wrap: Tennessee, Georgia, Clemson, Rutgers and Charlotte have offered.
Performance: Dotson exuded toughness on each and every trip up the floor. It's quite clear that winning is important to him and he uses his quickness and deep jump-shooting to his advantage. A few times, he let his emotions get the better of him and he'll have to learn to channel his intensity in a way so that his teammates can feed off of it.
J.P. Moorman (2017)
Greensboro (N.C.) Day
Recruiting wrap: Virginia Tech, UCF, Richmond, Charlotte, UNC Greensboro and others have offered.
Performance: Because his team is made up of mostly wings, Moorman has to play a bit on the interior, but he's a college small forward. He has a good body to grow on, finishes well around the rim and shows promise as an off-the-dribble creator and jump shooter.
Bruno Solomun
Lewisville (N.C.) Forsyth Country Day
Recruiting wrap: St. Bonaventure and Appalachian State offers.
Performance: A big man who can play either the four or the five on the college level, Solomun is mobile and can shoot the ball with good range. He should be a good spring option for mid-major programs looking for a big man.
