It has been evident so far this spring that Phenom’s 16U team has the pieces to construct a national reputation similar to that of Phenom's 17U roster. And it’s likely that Tyrese Hunter will lead that charge.
The Racine St. Catherines guard is ranked highest on the roster, and his stock is only going to rise after this spring. Hunter is an all-around scorer, and through his development as a sophomore, he’s had scoring outbursts in different fashions. During his season with Racine, Hunter had four games with over three makes from three. That said, the bulk of that season he relied on quick maneuvers when driving to the hoop and crafty finishes. This spring, Phenom’s success has had his fingerprints all over it, as he is the chief shot taker for a star-studded roster.
But he’s hardly it for them, just as Jalen Johnson is hardly the only guy for Phenom’s 17U team.
Kobe Johnson, the brother of Jalen, has blossomed into a desired recruit in his own right, rounding out a high-major backcourt with Hunter. At Nicolet, Kobe took a major step from year one — where he was lucky to nab garbage minutes — to year two
