Khoi Thurmond (Illinois)

The Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp featured some of the top baby ballers in the country for the Class of 2023 and 2024. Here’s Part 1 of our top performers from that weekend.  

Future Phenom Camp Class of 2023-2024 Top Performers Part 1 

Khoi Thurmond Guard (Illinois)- “King” Khoi lived up to his name by directing his team to the championship and taking home MVP honors. The southpaw has a throwback Chicago guard game as he broke down defenders like Tim Hardaway and then dished the rock like Zeke Thomas. He scored when he needed but his unselfish style should be an inspiration to others regardless of age.

Jalen Newhouse Guard (California)- This West Coast kid didn’t waste his flier mileage by taking the trip to the nation’s capital. He’s a versatile guard featuring dribbling, passing and scoring skills. Right now his size allows him to score and pass over most defenders. He wanted that East Coast bump and was ready to rumble.

Cameron Gillus Guard (Virginia)- Gillus has an array of skills on the offensive end and doesn’t mind playing defense 94 feet. He showed quickness off the bounce and good range on his shot. Even though he’s just a rising 4th Grader he has the craftiness to get his shot off.

Jeremiah Dorsey Guard (New York)- Dorsey wasn’t the quickest guard in the building but he understands how to play the angles. When dribbling he zig-zags across the floor and uses his body to shield defenders. He uses a floater or a scoop layup to finish off his plays.

Anthony Saunders Guard (Virginia)- Saunders is very versatile for a player this young. He sees and runs the floor very well. He can either finish off the pass or create his own opportunity. He has good strength that allows him to finish through contact.

Tyrin Bizelle Guard (Maryland)- Rounding out our Part 1 report is Tyrin Bizelle from B’More Orange. He was one of the youngest in the group but still was able to score and create. He proved that size doesn’t matter as he made the Top 20 All Star Game and finished as a Top 5 overall performer in the camp.
