Hassan Jackson

Hassan Jackson was a newcomer to the Future Phenom Camp and made sure he didn’t waste his visit. The combo forward showed supreme versatility as he played his way to the AGame All American Game. We sat down with the Rhode Island resident to get his take on the Future Phenom Camp. 

My Future Phenom Camp Experience Feat. Hassan Jackson 

BS: What was your mindset coming into the camp? 
HJ: My mindset going into the camp was to outwork everyone and be the best player in the camp. I really wanted to leave my mark on the camp and as well as my peers. 

BS: How did you like the drill session? 
HJ: The drill session was amazing. It was efficient, effective and intense. It definitely helped my game and added a few new tools. After speaking with others at the camp I can say with confidence that my opinion is not a one-off. 

BS: Who was the best player you faced at the Future Phenom Camp? 
HJ: There was quite a few very talented players in attendance but if I had to pick one it would be Jaden Bradley. He is an explosive and talented combo guard that gets the job done in multiple ways. I had a great deal of fun competing with several players but I especially enjoyed the games with him. 

BS: What was your favorite aspect of the camp? 
HJ: The games were my favorite aspect of the camp. I was given the opportunity to network, use some of the skills I’ve been practicing on in game situations and ultimately Improve which is always the goal. It also showed me so areas that I need to improve in. 

BS: How does the Future Phenom Camp stack up against other camps you have attended? 
HJ: The Future Phenom Camp is definitely one of the top camps I have attended if not the best. It was very well organized and systematically designed which is a testament the staff and organization as a whole. I would most definitely suggest to anyone who can attend this camp to do so if for no reason but the great volume of learning that happens in just two days! 

BS: Give me one word to describe the Future Phenom Camp. 
HJ: One word to describe the camp would be “organized”. The camp provided an extraordinary experience and I greatly appreciate you and your entire staff for allowing me to participate in it and helping me improve my game. Thank you.
