"He's got great quickness and he can really shoot the ball. I'm talking about falling backwards, leaning, whatever, and he can go up and dunk over a 6-8 guy. Man, he's just a player."

Rooks was one of the top performers, in any age group, at the eighth N.C. Phenom 150 camp in Winston-Salem last month. More than 200 players from five states showed up. His performance wowed camp organizer Rick Lewis.

"Before the event, Rooks was primarily known as a shooting guard, but (he) worked hard in the off season on his ball handling and passing ability," Lewis said. "He has really elevated his game and has become a better all-around player. He will not be known just as a shooter anymore."

ESPN national recruiting analyst Dave Telep, who lives in the Raleigh area, agrees with Lewis' assessment.
