John Lucas Camp: 2013 Prospects

LOUISVILLE -- During the John Lucas Midwest Invitational this past weekend, the 2013 prospects had a strong showing. Austin Colbert, Andrew Harrison and Jabari Parker were among the top prospects.

Andrew Harrison, SG/SF – There isn't much this 6-foot-5, possibly 6-foot-6, wing prospect can't do. He's an elite scorer that has the ability to score in a variety of ways. Whether it's knocking down long-range jumpers, attacking the basket or pulling up for mid-range jumpers, Harrison can do it. Although he lost interest in it at times, when Harrison wants to be a lockdown defender he's certainly capable as he moves well laterally and has impressive strength. He's an elite prospect in the 2013 class.

Brian Bridgewater, PF/SF – At this point Bridgewater, a 6-foot-6, 235-pounder, is an undersize post prospect. But don't let that fool you. He's an animal in the paint. An active, live body, Bridgewater runs the floor well, is a very good athlete and has terrific strength. At camp, Bridgewater tried to dunk everything in the paint and played with some aggression. He also mixed in a couple of three-pointers and a turn around jumper from the block.

Austin Colbert, PF – Over the course of the past year we've seen this 6-foot-8, 205-pound power forward a handful of times. This, however, was the best performance he's put together. His jump shot is best weapon at this point. He has great form and can step out to 21-feet and bury jumpers with consistency. He has a great set of hands, moves well and is a pretty good athlete as well.

Alex Foster, PF – One of the better forward prospects at the John Lucas camp was this 6-foot-7 active four-man. Foster moves up and down the floor quite well, is a solid athlete and takes an active role in rebounding the basketball. He finishes better with his off hand much better than he did this time last year and seems to be improving his all around game.

Jabari Parker, PF/SF – The talent at the top of the 2013 class is quite impressive and Parker is among the elite in that class. Rated as a top five prospect, Parker, a 6-foot-7 versatile forward, has a terrific skill set. His feel for the game is top notch and he can score in a variety of ways. His jump shot is consistent from mid and long range, but he also has a crisp post game.

Treshawn Bolden, PF – Playing alongside a couple of major standouts in LaQuinton Ross and Rodney Hood during AAU season, Bolden didn't get a ton of touches. With that said, he certainly showed his stuff in Louisville this past weekend. At 6-foot-8, Bolden possesses a very strong frame with long arms. He's active around the basket, runs the floor well and has a good set of hands. He's one for high majors to track in the 2013 class.

Aquille Carr, PG – At first glance most don't expect out of this 5-foot-5 guard. However once Carr hits the floor his talent is easy to see. Blessed with tremendous speed and athleticism, Carr races up and down the floor making athletic plays. With all that said, Carr will need to tone down his wildness as he often times attacks the rim wildly and out of control. He's an interesting prospect because of his size, but he's certainly talented.

Zavier Turner, PG – This past summer, Turner, who played for the Eric Gordon All-Stars, often times deferred to the talented group of wings that played alongside him. At this particular event, Turner, a 5-foot-9 strongly built guard, took over at times. He has pretty good speed, isn't afraid of initiating contact and showed a nice mid-range pull up jumper.

Duane Wilson, PG – Last time we saw Wilson, a 6-foot-2 guard out of Wisconsin, was still recovering from a knee injury. This past weekend he looked close to 100-percent and had a strong showing. He has a strong frame, pretty good vision and a solid handle. Wilson used his strength when he attacked the rim and showed he could finish with both hands once he was there.

Will Ferguson, PG – Kendall Marshall has been the guy handling the point guard duties for Arlington (Va.) Bishop O'Connell the past four years, now its Ferguson's turn. Ferguson has good speed, impressive vision and had the mid-range jump shot working at camp this week.

Brenton Scott, PG – Up against Andrew Harrison during the first game session on Sunday, Scott gave the highly regarde guard all he could handle. Scott, a 6-foot-1 stocky guard, didn't back down and in fact was the aggressor for much of the match up. Scott hunts mid-level jump shots and uses his strength and frame when he attacks the basket.

Bryson Scott, PG – While Brenton put together one of the better efforts we've seen from him, his brother Bryson had it working as well. Like his brother, Bryson is tough and doesn't back down from a challenge. He's a relentless driver and finishes well around the rim. He also mixed in some long-range shots and mid-range pull-ups.

Austin Hatch, a 6-foot-5 stocky hybrid forward, played well at the John Lucas camp. Hatch showed good mobility and a nice looking jump shot. Simon Ojeleye, a native of Kansas, is a strong forward prospect. The southpaw was active throughout the two-day camp. Darryl Hicks, who recently transferred to Louisville (Ky.) Trinity and will sit out his sophomore season, attacked the basket and hunted mid-range jump shots. Aaron Harrison, the brother of Andrew, did not play on the second day due to an injury.
