MILWAUKEE, Wisc. -- Five players stood above the rest at the Brandon Jennings Invitational this past weekend. Among the top guys were signees from Duke, Illinois and West Virginia.

Size: 6-5/180 |
Quick Take: At this point there isn't much more we can write about this 6-foot-4 guard out of Winter Park (Fla.) High. Rivers is the best scorer in the 2011 class and he showed that in Milwaukee. When a shot went up it was a surprise if it didn't go in. His step-back jump shot is impressive and his overall ability to shoot off the dribble is the best I've seen in high school basketball in quite some time. He's also developed a consistent floater that he uses when he gets into the lane. He went for 35 points in an overtime loss at the Brandon Jennings Invitational. Committed: Duke
Size: 7-6/180 |
Quick Take: Coming out of the summer there were concerns about Tokoto. He didn't have a strong June and was so-so in July. But many of those concerns were answered in Milwaukee this past weekend. In just three quarters of action the 6-foot-6 wing prospect went for 23 points and showed a much improved jump shot. In fact, the talented junior made six jump shots, including a three-pointer and five shots from 15 to 18 feet. It's clear he's spent a considerable amount of time in the gym and it's certainly helping. He looked as confident shooting the basketball as we've ever seen him. Recruitment: North Carolina, Wisconsin, Marquette, Kentucky, UCLA and Stanford, Kansas
Size: 6-4/180 |
Quick Take: Heading into this event there wasn't much info out there on Brown. A 6-foot-4, 180-pound wing, Brown has a big, strong frame that can take hits when he's attacking the basket. On Saturday he showed two parts to his game. In the first half he spent time knocking down three-pointers. In the second half he switched it up and went to the rim. He was a big reason St. Frances scored a victory at the event, as he went for 27 points and secured the games MVP. Recruitment: Maryland, South Florida and Loyola (Md.)
Size: 7-6/210 |
Quick Take: What impressed us the most about Henry was his ability to finish through contact. He attacked the rim and made a number of impressive plays once he got there. He has long arms, a strong frame and is an impressive all around athlete. Because of that he's a good rebounder and that will continue in college. He also has a legit jump shot with a pretty quick trigger. He put up 24 points in Orr's game Saturday. Committed: Illinois
Size: 6-4/200 |
Quick Take: A physical wing prospect, Brown strung together a strong outing in Milwaukee. He knocked down a handful of one-dribble pull-ups from 15-feet and looking comfortable doing it. Brown, who scored 21 points on Saturday, looked much stronger than he did in the summer and clearly has spent a considerable amount of time in the weight room working on his frame and overall strength. Committed: West Virginia
