Future Phenom Camp Class of 2026 Top Performers Part 1

The Class of 2026 has some of the top players in the region at the Future Phenom Camp. Here’s our first look at the top performers of the rising 8th Graders. 

Future Phenom Camp Class of 2026 Top Performers Part 1 

Jalen Grant Guard (NJ) – Grant is a combo guard that can do what his team needs to get the win as he showed at the camp leading his Florida St. team to an undefeated record and a championship win. He was one of the best 3-point shooters we saw as he could knock it down off the catch and shoot or off the dribble. He can score from anywhere on the court and we liked how he used his floater package to score around the rim in traffic. Jalen has a tight handle and changes speeds very well navigating the court. We love his demeanor as he always looks like he is playing with a purpose, and it shows in the win column. He deservedly took home the 8th grade MVP Gold Ball Trophy.

Jordan Skyers Guard (NY) – Skyers is an explosive athletic scoring guard that was in conversation for the MVP. He glides in transition as he is very hard to contain playing above the rim. We saw him convert a few crowd-pleasing dunks during the camp. Jordan is always attacking the defense and is at this best driving to the rim, but he proved he could also knock down the 3-point shot. We love how he also straps up on the defensive end blocking shots and grabbing steals. He was part of the All-Camp Team (Top 5).

A.J. Dybantsa Forward (MA) – A.J. is a 6’7 wing forward that has all the tools to be a High School All American. He took home the Best Prospect Award at the camp. Dybantsa seems to grow a few more inches every time we see him, and we believe he isn’t even close to reaching his ceiling. We love his ability to handle the ball and make the right decision. He can attack the rim and finish at a high level plus has a good looking pullup off the dribble. He was part of the All-Camp Team (Top 5).

Richie Rosa Guard (NJ) – Rosa is a point guard that controls the game on both ends of the floor. He plays with a competitiveness that any coach would love to have on their team. He has a quick first step and enjoys driving and kicking getting his teammates open shots. If needed he can fill it up in the scoring column. His confidence level shows in his game as no time is too big for him regardless the stage or who he is matched up with. You want the ball in this kid’s hands when the game is on the line. He was part of the All-Camp Team (Top 5).

Jebron Harris Forward (NJ) – Harris is a combo forward that has basketball bloodlines as both of his older brothers play at Seton Hall. He continues to expand his game more to the perimeter as he can handle the ball in space leading the break after he grabs the rebound. We love the look of his mid-range jumper and Jebron can also knock down the 3-point shot. He is hard to stop attacking the basket as we saw him use a few spin moves to discard his defender and finish at the rim. He led his team to the championship but fell a little short. He was part of the All-Camp Team (Top 5).

Dior Anderson Forward (NY) – Anderson is an active Wing that is always running the floor and excels at finishing in transition. He has a sturdy frame that allows him to finish through contact and guard multiple front court positions. He shows his passion for the game as he will do anything to help his team win. His coach voted him the best teammate/leader on his camp team so that says a lot about this kid. As Dior continues to sharpen his game the sky is the limit. He was part of the All-Camp Team (Top 5).
