Phenom Alert-2023 Elijah Fisher Explodes on National Scene

Elijah Fisher
There is a ton of talent at this year’s Future Phenom Camp, so of courser it could be hard for some players to standout from the crowd.  However, that’ s not the problem for Elijah Fisher (6’1/PF/2023/CN).  The Canadian product showed flashes of greatness in Bill Francis’ Middle School All-American Game when he grabbed MVP honors on Friday, but the things he’s doing to the competition early Sunday morning has the crowd buzzing and talking #1 player in the class.

Why can Fisher be the top player in his class you ask?  He has the size, athleticism, and ability to score, defend and rebound all at an elite level. He is coordinated, has full control of his body, and can handle the rock and defend smaller guards.  With his combination of size and strength and toughness, Fisher is almost unstoppable to the rack. He has big feet long arms and appears to have plenty of room to grow. He runs the floor like a deer, is fluid and finishes near the rim at a high rate.  Fisher also understands the advantages of his size, as he instinctively posts smaller defenders and pushes the rock 94 feet in transition after the rebound. There was no official score kept in his opening game on Sunday, but if Fisher did not drop 30 we would be very surprised. From what we saw this morning, Fisher could be very effective competing up in the class of 2022.  Ro Russell has another phenom in his stable. You heard it here first folks, Elijah Fisher is coming for the # 1 spot!
