Pitt Jam Fest: Breakout Performers

Coaches have been complaining about the lack of quality point guards, but all around the Pitt Jam Fest players like Tyler Ennis were emerging as quality lead guards.

Size: 6-1/170 |
Quick Take: A lot has been made of the fact that there are very few high level point guards in the 2012 class, and coaches have been waiting for players to emerge. One that is showing he can play at a high level is Hairston. He is strong, has great floor vision, and makes open shots. All weekend long he was a big time producer, and his stock is most definitely on the rise.

Quick Take: White is an athletic wing who can really score. Now as a re-classified senior, White is showing the skills to be a high-major player. He can score off the bounce as well as make open shots. Also he plays hard and is a willing defender. There is no doubt that White is going to attract a lot more attention in very short order.

Quick Take: Ennis was on the radar before the event, but now there is no doubt that he is one of the best players in his class. As a floor general he really knows how to play, and on top of that he also has enough physical abilities to be a problem for defenders. Ennis never makes mistakes and doesn't turn the ball over which is his greatest strength, but when the game dictates he also proved to be a more than capable scorer once breaking his man down off the dribble.

Size: 7-0.5/220 |
Quick Take: There just aren't many people on this planet who are a legit 7-feet tall that can run the floor, have good hands, and a nice touch out to 15 feet. Washington is someone who fits that description. He still needs to get stronger and learn how to play with his back to the basket, but he rebounds very well and is making great strides with his game.

Recruiting: Committed to Wake Forest

Size: 6-9/165 |
Quick Take: A lot of players in Indiana's 2013 class have received multiple high-major offers early on, and already Brown is better than most of them. A freakishly athletic point guard, Brown showed an ability to make shots from deep as well as get by his guy off the dribble. He is small, but plays much bigger than his size because of his athleticism. Despite being 5-foot-9 he can touch the top of the square with his hand.

Recruiting: Dayton, Xavier, Ohio University, Cincinnati, American

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: Jordan will be one of the most heavily recruited players on the entire East Coast in the class of 2013. He has great length for a point guard, and is very athletic. Right now his bread and butter is beating his man off the bounce and getting to the mid-range and either passing or making the jumper, but also he is capable of getting to the rim. With his height and ability to play the lead guard spot, look for many other schools to come rushing in shortly.

Recruiting: Butler, Drexel, LaSalle, St. Joe's, Temple
