Swish 'N Dish: Breakout Performers

Here are six prospects that excelled this weekend at the NY2LA Swish 'N Dish that came into the event without a lot of hype.

Size: 7-8/200 |
Quick Take: Berry is one of the most skilled interior prospects in the entire class. He runs the floor well, has great hands, and can really turn and face his man in the mid-range. Also he is an excellent passer and someone with nice post moves. Not a great athlete yet, it looks to be coming for him. Look for big things from Berry all spring and summer long.

Size: 6-3/185 |
Quick Take:Not a lot was known about Munson before the event, but he definitely made his presence felt. A strong guard who is a big time athlete, Munson attacks the rim will and finishes from the mid-range and in. His perimeter shot can use some refinement, but it looked fairly decent at the event. Overall he really improved his stock.

Recruiting: Tennessee, Illinois, Missouri State, Illinois State

Size: 7-8/220 |
Quick Take: A big and burly power forward, Woods can score down low but also really runs the floor and shows some good hands on the block. He gets overshadowed by some of the other top kids in Chicago in the class, but Woods is a big time player in his own right. His stock is already soaring, and Woods showed why he is such a highly coveted target.

Recruiting: Illinois, Purdue, Wisconsin, Marquette, DePaul

Size: 7-8/210 |
Quick Take:While the 2014 class is a long way from being sorted out, one thing is for sure, Looney will be talked about quite a bit. A long and angular guard, Looney can play anywhere on the perimeter. He makes outside shots, rebounds, and takes his man off the bounce at will. Also he is a good passer and a well above average athlete. As he gets stronger it is scary to think how good he can.

Recruiting: Marquette and Wisconsin

Size: 6-1/165 |
Quick Take: Davis is more of a small shooting guard than a point guard, but his arms are freakishly long, and he plays with a ridiculously high motor. He is at his best now going to the rim, but his shot making has also been there. Not a lot was seen of him during the high school year, but his game is going to a whole new level right now, and Davis is showing that he can play at a very high level. Whenever Mac Irvin needed a bucket, Davis was able to get it.

Recruiting: Illinois, Memphis, Ohio State, Chicago State

Size: 6-4/180 |
Quick Take: Russell is a player who can flat out get buckets. He is a ball heavy scoring guard who takes some ill-advised shots, but when he is rolling it can be impossible to stop. He was one of the best players all weekend at the 15 and under level, and put his team on his back at times.

Recruiting: Kentucky, Louisville, Xavier
