Davon Jefferson is one of the better wings on the West Coast. He's getting a ton of attention from Pac-10 schools and his athleticism is astounding. He had a great showing at the Pangos All-West Camp and a great first game at the Pangos Summer Shootout. We'll take a closer look at that first game from Los Angeles.

Aggressive on the boards.
Passed out of double teams.
Got to the line.
Was a great rebounder when he is aggressive.
Ran the floor very well.

Was not a factor in the second half of the blow-out.
In the second half he quit crashing the boards and instead broke down court.
Shot selection was mixed. Took a few bad shots.
His team won handily and he didn't need to do much in the second half. Sat out the rest of the tournament.

Scores better on the inside, but will need to be a better outside scorer at the next level.
Favors Arizona and Washington right now.
His game is similar to that of Hassan Adams' at this stage. Like Adams in high school he uses his athleticism to get inside and score down low. He has a better handle than Adams did, but Adams is more explosive.
