Future Phenom Camp Class Of 2022 Top Performers Part 2

Robert Martin (Missouri)

The Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp Class of 2022 brought an enormous amount of talent to Boyd, Maryland. Here’s our second look at this class and who played well in Maryland. 

Future Phenom Camp Class Of 2022 Top Performers Part 2 

Robert Martin Guard (Missouri)- Martin arrived from the “Show Me” state and showed the Spotlight what he was made of. This kid is ultra-quick with a ton of game. He weaved through the defense Chris Paul style and either scored or delivered the rock on time. His poise and demeanor on the floor stood out. He drove past defenders like a blur and was a difference maker all weekend. His game reminds me of Louisville guard Quentin Synder when he was this age.

Nikkos Kavanes Forward (Virginia)- Kavanes was one of the most dominant scorers to come through this event. He had back to back games in which he scored in the high 20s. He too strong and skilled on this level for most youngsters to slow him down. Once he gets going downhill he’s like a runaway freight train.
Sammy Scott Guard (Maryland)- Scott brought the excitement to this event with his slick ball handling and flaring game on the floor. He has the supreme shake and bake in his game including a low dribble that makes him difficult to strip. Once he gets to the cup he understands how to maneuver his body to avoid shot blockers. As he gets more mature in his game he will learn to trust his teammates a little more.
Carlos Lopez Guard (New Jersey)- A few years ago at our Skillcase we stated that Lopez had a good skill set but needed to develop his confidence. Fast forward to the Future Phenom Camp and Lopez now possesses the swagger to match his game. The lefty displayed the ability to play both guard positions and had stretches when he scored the rock. He could be the next nice guard coming from the South Jersey area.
Jonathan Lamothe Guard (Maryland)- Lamothe is a powerful wing player that knives his way through the defense. He’s a typical slasher that’s strong enough to finish through contact. I like how he looked in transition and on the defensive end of the floor.
Gionn Swann Guard (Maryland)- Swann is a no nonsense type of guy. He has a good handle and a quick trigger. He goes hard on both ends of the floor and doesn’t seem to be out there trying to make friends. He plays the game very intensely and with passion. I look forward to seeing him on the AAU circuit this season.
Lorenzo Perez Guard (New Jersey)- The Garden State guard leaves all the glitz and glamour for others and he gets the job done with substance. He set the tempo for his squad and used the drive, draw and dish technique effectively. His play earned him an entry in the All Star Game.
