(Note – Listed in alphabetical order)
DOMINIQUE COLLIER – 6-0 – 2014 – RAY ALLEN SELECT
A smooth young floor leader with nice physical tools and solid instincts. Collier was in control throughout the day and showed solid playmaking and an ability to control the tempo. When it comes to perimeter prospects on the rise, Collier is one to watch.
TYQUONE GREER – 6-5 – 2014 – NET GAIN SPORTS (CHICAGO)
Athletic slashing wing talent who showed nice explosive and the ability to score in the open court with a high level of consistency. Solid bounce to his game, attacks the rim well, and looks the part of a versatile slashing scorer on the rise in the coming years.
DARNELL HARRIS – 6-7 – 2011 – MILWAUKEE HURRICANE REBELS
Really got things going with a 30 point effort during the playoffs on Saturday afternoon as he knockdown his trademark jumper with consistency and virtually took over the game offensively to push his team into Sunday.
JUWAN MERRIWEATHER – 6-0 – 2013 – PLAYGROUND ELITE
Solid young up and coming floor leader with athleticism, dribble penetration skills, and excellent feel for the game and solid mid and possibly high major potential with hard work. Displayed all of that and then some with a number of quality efforts during day 2.
ANDRE NORRIS – 6-7 – 2011 – ILLINOIS T-WOLVES
A solid forward with nice length and a decent skill package. Scored in double figures with consistency on Days 1 and 2 and was active defensively and made things happen. A solid sleeper who opened some eyes with a strong showing on Day 2.
JOSH OGLESBY – 6-5 – 2011 – IOWA BARNSTORMERS
One of the premiere combo guards in the current junior class, Oglesby was solid on Day 2 in terms of his decisions, ability to hit the perimeter stroke, and consistency game in and game out. Handles it well, sees the floor well, and is lethal if you leave him open.
GLENN ROBINSON JR. – 6-5 – 2012 – SPIECE SELECT IRWIN
Continues to elevate his stock and his performance on Day 2 further enhanced that notion. Showed solid scoring ability, a nice mid range offensive package, and the versatility and instincts to become a big time scorer. Was solid in Day 2 action and looks the part of one to watch in the 2012 class.
CALAHAN SKOGMAN – 6-4 – 2011 – WISCONSIN BLIZZARD KELLETT
Really stepped up big on Saturday with a huge effort during the afternoon that continues to push him more and more in the direction of a solid low to mid major prospect. Excellent size, range extends beyond the arc, and has a solid mid range game that is tough to defend. Knocked down a number of trey balls in a big time performance on the day and really made his presence felt in the process.
JARROD UTHOFF – 6-8 – 2011 – IOWA BARNSTORMERS
A solid athletic big who is one of the hottest prospects in the Midwest for the current junior class. Solid athlete with instincts, range, and the ability to finish around the basket. Showed flashes of dominance on Saturday and was active on the glass both offensively and defensively in a couple of quality efforts on the day.
QUEVYN WINTERS – 6-5 – 2011 – MILWAUKEE SPARTANS
The Baylor commit stepped up big with a 25 point effort in a loss to the Iowa Barnstormers on Saturday afternoon. Continues to show solid range and the ability to score the basketball with a perimeter stroke that extends beyond the arc and solid mid range skills as well. Despite the loss, Winters was impressive in defeat.
