Future Phenom Camp Class of 2024 Top Performers Part 4
Travis Upchurch Guard (CT) – Upchurch is a do it all guard that has nice size for the guard position. He is a combo guard that can play the one or the two. In a camp setting it is refreshing to see a guard play the right way always looking to make the right play. Travis can pass, shoot and dribble and he plays with a good feel and high IQ. He was selected for the AGame All American Game.
Danny Carbuccia Guard (New York)- Carbuccia was a late addition to the Future Phenom Camp but that didn’t stop him from making the AGame All American Game. He scores at will which was evident as he won the King of the Court contest. This Big Apple product gets it done!
Jadyn James Forward (New York)- James has a frame that’s built for absorbing contact and finishing. He attacks the basket with reckless abandoned and usually ends with a good result. James skills set is on the rise as his handle and play making has shown improvement. He was an Agame All American participant.
Dylan Harper Guard (New Jersey) – Harper is a long lanky lefty guard with handles. He looks like he will continue to grow which will give him good size for the guard spot. He can be a playmaker and set up his teammates or if needed he get can score the ball to give his team some offensive punch. He was selected to the AGame All American Game.
Rashee Bell Forward (New Jersey) – Bell is a big athletic forward that moves extremely well for his size. He does a little bit of everything to help his team win. He is agile on his feet allowing him to finish around the rim at a high percentage. We saw him get and steal taking it coast to coast and finishing with an and 1, then he got an offensive rebound put back and then had a drop step finish with the left hand.
Tyler Ball Guard (Maryland) – Ball is a big strong guard that knows how to score the ball. The DMV produces a lot of top prospects that go onto play college ball and Tyler is one to track moving forward. We liked his ability to finish through contact and he showed his range out to the 3-point line.
Kevin Rucker Guard (Pennsylvania) – At camps like the Future Phenom Camp you always see some new faces that you believe will have a bright future. Rucker will be one of those guys. He is a long guard that can do it all. He plays with great pace and has a high IQ. Kevin can attack off the dribble or knock down the 3-ball. He also draws a lot of fouls and converts from the charity stripe with his nice stroke. He is an all-around developing prospect from the Keystone State with a high ceiling.
Dylan Veillette Forward (New Jersey)- This forward took home top defender of the camp as he altered or block shots. He is lanky and should shoot up a few more inches throughout his career. On offense he is developing and should be more productive as he packed on strength.
