Future Phenom Camp Class of 2021 Top Performers Part 1 (Usual Suspects)

Donnell Harris (Florida)

The Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp Class 0f 2021 came with a ton of talent. In our first look into this group we will talk about the top players that are familiar to the Spotlight scene. 

Future Phenom Camp Class of 2021 Top Performers Part 1 (Usual Suspects) 

Donnell Harris Forward (Florida)- After finishing #1 in the camp last year Harris could have been in relaxed mode or even stayed away from this event. But instead the native of the Sunshine State put his title on the line and once again dominated the competition. Harris was too much to handle inside as he scored with ease and controlled the glass. But what really caught my eye was his improved ball handling, range and play making ability. I can clearly see that this kid has been putting the work in at the gym. His transition to the wing seems to be a lot sooner than later.

Zion Harmon Guard (Washington, DC)- Harmon can’t go anywhere without a target on his back. At the outset Harmon didn’t seem motivated to play against his class but when he saw opponents gunning for him “The Lion” woke up and took notice. A bona-fide scoring machine, Harmon showed the ability to finish from anywhere and unlimited range. He also has the knack to turn up is effort at a drop of the dime.
Ryan Conway Guard (Maryland)- Conway entered this event with a chip on his shoulder. I wanted to finish as the #1 player for his class even though he came up one spot short he still had a spectacular weekend. He has expanded his game from just being a spot up shooter, now he’s comfortable breaking down defenders. He improved handle also comes with court vision and better decision making. He played with extreme fire during this event.

Shane Dezonie Guard (Pennsylvania)- Dezonie made his first appearance in the Class of 2021 and dominated. The big guard scored through traffic and in transition. He even came close to throwing it down on the break. He packs an impressive offensive package. Next season he will be difficult to contain on the AAU circuit.
Trevor Keels Forward (Maryland)- Keels has developed his ball handling and uses it to dance pat defenders and finish at the tin. He has a wide frame and has the body control to maneuver around shot blockers. Once he gets on a scoring streak he’s tough to low down.
Brayon Freeman Guard (Maryland)- One of the best floor generals in the region had a chance to open up a little more at the Future Phenom Camp. He had a few games where he lit up the score boards. I like his natural feel for the game and the way he turned up his play when needed. Next season we look for him to step into the forefront of DMV floor generals in this class.
Khalil Brantley Guard (Georgia)- The bulldog type point guard was in attack mode all weekend. He makes it his business to get into the teeth of the defense and finish with a floater or draw and dish. This kid possesses one of the best handles in the country and I willing to compete against any opposing guard in America.
Ahmad Harrison Guard (Maryland)- Harrison has all the tools you need in a basketball player and he showed that at the Future Phenom Camp. He uses his height to pass or short over smaller guards and can it done with the rock or from the wing position. His versatility also stood out in transition where he converted with ease. He’s one of the smoothest players in the region.
Tristan Jeffries Guard (New Jersey)- Jeffries brought his all-around game and physical style down to Maryland for this event. He’s one of the best finishers around and has stepped up his game on the defensive end. Tristan knows how to use his body to finish through contact. He proved he could get it done on this stage.
