The Workout: SRs & JRs

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ? "The Workout" sponsored by Team Florida is a two-day affair and on Saturday, it was the juniors and seniors turn to impress. Seniors Will Cummings and Daniel Sapp were strong as was junior wing Michael Frazier.

Will Cummings, PG: We touted him during the spring and he's done nothing but continue to make strides. Temple will be ecstatic to sign him. He's got quick hands, an attention to detail on defense and a burst. He's seeing the floor better than he was in the summer and in terms of improving he's ahead of where he was in the summer. For our money, he was the top senior performer at the camp. When matched with Sapp, he raised his level of play as you'd expect.

Daniel Sapp, SG/PG: There's something to be said about coming into a camp situation and immediately taking control and having a presence on your team. Sapp is confident with his handle and should be able to keep defenses honest with his perimeter game, even behind the arc. He tends to leave his feet as a passer and that's an issue down the road. He's a point in progress and understands there is work to be done. Regardless, look for him to be a viable mid-level option as a combo.

Reshawn Rembert, SG: Always have loved him as a shooter and we aren't sure why he's not a hotter name. Programs that value makers from the perimeter should reconsider their evaluations on him. He's an easy mid-level pick.

Chris Bryant, PF/SF: If there was one thing we learned about him it was that he can pass the basketball. Bryant didn't have the summer he was looking for and would likely be a C-USA level early signee.

Michael Frazier, SG: They played three games and we only saw him once but apparently he shot the ball well early. He was the best prospect in the gym and had his moments. However, what we liked was that he didn't jack shots or feel the need showboat; it was an unselfishly efficient event. He looks more comfortable with the ball than he did in the summer.

Billydee Williams, SF/SG: He's not 100% healthy here but he's a talent. He'll get recruited at the small forward and shooting guard positions and depending on his skill development, he man may either. What he's got going for himself is an explosive game with bounce.

Demetrius Henry is a 2012 PF worth a follow. He's good around the basket but has to become a more skilled guy and take better care of the ball in traffic. ... He's tiny but senior point guard Andre Smith has some jets. Winthrop will like his overall strength. If he can keep them honest with his 3s and hold onto to his toughness he'll be strong in the Big South. ... MIchael Frazier needed to improve his ball-handling and during the drill session of camp, there was a noticeable difference and new confidence with his left hand. ...

Isaiah Cotton is a big senior, like 6-10 and maybe 270 big. There's a lot of raw materials there and its going to take a while to get it all working but he's a lower level guy with down the road potential. ... Junior small forward Marc Noriela showed us something on the glass. Last year Will Yeguette grabbed 50 boards in three games here and while he wasn't close to that prodigious of an effort, he was full of energy and crashed often and hard. ...

Sapp said he'll visit Clemson Oct. 15. Western Kentucky, Nebraska, Murray State and Central Florida offered. Georgia is looking. ... Rembert visited Jacksonville and has a trip to East Tennessee State next weekend. Murray State offered and UNC-W is looking. ... Billy Dee Williams was recently offered by North Florida. Virginia Tech, Miami, Stetson, Richmond, Clemson, Pittsburgh and Central Florida are in the mix. ... Chris Richard has Florida State, East Carolina, UNC-Wilmington and Murray State. ...
