espnhs_john_wall_damon_harge_200x300 YAHOO Sports reporter Cameron Smith says “Hoops phenom Damon Harge (Jr.) earns Division I hoops scholarship offer before starting seventh grade” and “he first gained national attention here at Prep Rally for blowing up the North Carolina high school hoops scene while still in the sixth grade. Now he’s getting noticed by some pretty talented pros and college coaches, one of whom just took the dramatic step of making Harge possibly the first sixth-grader to receive a Division I college basketball scholarship offer.” Click to read full story

SLAM MAGAZINE, writer Roger Bohn starts his article with head title “Boy Among Men”, indicating Harge plays-up several grades, then he goes on to say “Damon Harge is one of the nation’s most recognized prep-stars, and he’s just 12.”

Clark Francis of Hoop Scoop even ranked Harge No.1 player overall at the Adidas Phenom camp in 2010. Phenom’s President, Joe Keller says he’s forever stunned Harge scored 50 points before his eyes merely four years ago.

Stiff Comp

Marvin Bagley (AZ) who’s 6’9″ may be the best 8th grade player. He has high- level skill and superior athleticism. 6’10” EJ Montgomery (FL) is arguably the best guard in class of 2018 though he’s comfortable payin’ all five position. Another exciting player worth mentioning is 5’5 Chase Adams (IL), a diminutive point guard with as much potential as the aforementioned.

ESPN, Jason Jordan posed the questioned is “Damon Harge, 12, Next Hoop Phenom?” in this article.

It’s definitely too early to tell whether he’s the next hoop phenom of high school, college and perhaps the NBA. However, we’ll attest to him being the most skilled 8th grade middle school player we’ve seen this year. Harge repeated a grade like a lot of student athletes, but unlike 99% of his graduating class, he has varsity basketball experience.

A better question is will the world have a chance to enjoy Harge’s performance on the next level? Follow Damon Harge on Twitter @DamonHargejr
