Miller Shines At N.C. Event

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The North Carolina Phenom 150 Camp tipped last weekend. Teammates Quincy Miller & Anthony Thomas were among the big hits as 60 prospects descended on Forsyth Country Day's campus.

Anthony Thomas, SF/SG – At this point, its safe to assume Western Carolina pirated one here. Easily one of the best performers on the day. Mix his improving jump shot with a graceful body and you've got an impact kid in the SoCon.

George MaNouge, C/PF – First year in the United States. He had no idea who he was playing against so his approach was consistent. Has great poise and patience in the post and size helps him. Should be considered a mid-level prospect that will be active and could improve quickly.


2011's Simmons
John Cannon, C – In assessing bigs all you want to see is a steady progression. With Cannon, that's happening. He's nipping 6-foot-10 and now playing with a purpose. Confidence level improving each time out and you can tell he's enjoying the process of advancing from prospect to player. There's work to do but his size, touch and resume are heading in the right direction.

Quincy Miller, SF – The most gifted prospect in attendance. His overall athleticism is impressive. He can leap and play at the rim but also forecasted a passing game. Overall, he went after it hard and if he tightens up the jumper he'll be a priority for big schools.

Jackson Simmons, PF – Not sure anyone at camp outworked him. Even though he's a hustler, that doesn't define him. Size 19s and long arms make him attractive and his improving jump shot helps. Basketball runs in the family and he'll be at least a mid-level prospect with a ceiling.

Tyler Lewis, PG – Sub-six-footer has a gift for passing and excellent court vision. The challenge he'll face each year will be on the size and speed meter. He's got offers already so that means plenty are keeping tabs on his progress. Can't underestimate how strong a distributor he is. Time and physical maturity will tell which level suits him best.

This season is a big one for sophomore Bernard Sullivan. He's coming off an injury and his high school team (North Meck) has high aspirations. Can play to mid-range; needs to keep developing in the pivot. … 2011's Tyler Poole is a huge student with broad shoulders. Brandishes a mid-range jump shot and a strong man's body. Belongs on the radar. … Be on the lookout for 2013 guard Rodney Purvis out of Raleigh. He played with the high schoolers and didn't look out of place. …
