Future Phenom Camp Class of 2024 Top Performers Part 1

Jahseem Felton

The Class of 2024 put on a show at the Future Phenom Camp. It was a highly competitive grade level. 

Future Phenom Camp Class of 2024 Top Performers Part 1 

Jahseem Felton Guard (NC) – Felton is a long active wing guard that is athletic and can guard four positions at this level. He is a stat stuffer that can affect the game in all five categories on the offensive and defensive end. He got a nice handle allowing him to move over to the point guard position if needed. He can score from all three levels shooting the 3 ball with a nice stroke, getting all the way to the rim, or hitting a mid-range jumper makes Jahseem a nightmare to guard. He deservedly took home the 8th grade MVP Gold Ball Trophy and Basketball Spotlight Jacket.

Dylan Seay Forward (NJ) – Seay could have arguably been one of the top prospects in attendance. He is a nice sized wing forward that can play inside or out at this level. We saw him get the ball with his back to the basket in the post and he was patient allowing him to score showing his skill and versatility. We also saw him attack off the dribble from the perimeter and finish with a nice floater. He has range out to the 3-point line. Dylan is playing above the rim and has a high IQ for the game. He was part of the All Camp Team (Top 6).

Dwayne Pierce Guard (NY) – Pierce is a big wing guard with handles allowing him to basically do anything he wants on the court. When his motor is turned up, he was pretty much unstoppable. We like his stoke from behind the 3-point line and just his overall ability to score the basketball. Over the years he has continued to transform his game and get better as one of the top players in his age group and we like what we see. Dwayne was part of the All Camp Team (Top 6).

Tarik Watson Forward (NY) – Watson is a name that has been out there for awhile as one of the top bigs in his class. He backed that up at the Future Phenom Camp. He is a long big standing around 6’6 with huge feet which tells us he is not done growing. He has refined his post moves, being very patient and countering the defense using ball fakes and creative finishes around the rim. He has a nice soft touch and we are excited for his future in the game. He was part of the All Camp Team (Top 6).

Elliot Cadeau Guard (NJ) – Cadeau must be in the conversation as one of the top point guards nationally. We have covered this kid over the years, and we love his maturation and high IQ. Years past he was more a pass first PG that loved to get his teammates involved and he always figured out a way to win the game. He has added more of a scoring mentality to his game using his quickness and ball handling to get to the rim and finish with either hand. We love that he is always going downhill putting pressure on the defense. If Elliot Cadeau was a stock, we would say “Buy”. He was part of the All Camp Team (Top 6).

Ian Jackson Forward (NY) – Jackson is one of those guys when you survey the floor you can just tell he is a player. A long wing oozing with potential Ian is a two-way player that can get it done in a variety of ways. We liked his unselfishness and ability to pass the ball getting his teammates involved. When needed he can score the ball in bunches and he is very good finishing in transition. We like him also as a lock down defender that can guard multiple positions and contain the other team’s best player. He was part of the All Camp Team (Top 6).
