EYBL Dallas: Day One

FRISCO, Texas -- Ricardo Ledo was the top performer of the day, but his big man DaJaun Coleman made sure to find a way to be effective as well.

Ricardo Ledo, SG, City Rocks – Arguably the nation's top scorer, Ledo went to work in the opening round game against Meanstreets. His jump shot is effortless and when his feet are set you can count it up as points. He's far from just an impressive shooter though, as Ledo can go off the bounce and score it from all three levels. He's an underrated passer as well.

Dajuan Coleman, C, City Rocks – While Ledo was pumping in points, Coleman locked down his area and swatted at least a dozen shots. He was active defensively, showed terrific timing and was aggressively pursuing shot blocking opportunities. What was impressive about his effort was when he wasn't able to have an affect on the offensive end, Coleman found another way to be productive. He's a top 10 prospect nationally.

Tyler Cavanaugh, PF, City Rocks – It was hard not to notice the type of effort Cavanaugh, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound power forward put together in the opening game. Playing next to Coleman, Cavanaugh locked in on the glass, mixed it up with the opposition and showed good touch inside. Top tier mid-majors are already checking in on this talented post prospect.

Kyle Anderson, PF, NJ Playaz – There's been much debate about what position Anderson, a 6-foot-8, 220-pounder, is. At this point, it's irrelevant. Anderson is just an impressive basketball player. He handled the ball a lot for the Playaz in this one and made smart basketball plays. He's a tremendous passer and has developed an especially impressive mid-range game, which was on full display against California Supreme.

Savon Goodman, SF, NJ Playaz – The best part about Goodman, a 6-foot-5 wing prospect headed to Villanova, is you know what you're going to get from him. The effort is always there and his motor is always running at a high rate. In this one he attacked the rim, finished above it at times and finished through contact.

J-Mychal Reese, PG, Houston Hoops – In Hampton, Reese, a 6-foot-1 lead guard, had it going and he didn't slow down in Dallas. Reese gets where he wants on the floor, has impressive speed and an efficient mid-range game. When the Hoops needed someone to make plays late in the game, it was Reese that stepped up.

Rasheed Sulaimon, SG, Houston Hoops – The Duke commit was solid in the Hoops win over the Alabama Challenge. Sulaimon, who has built a reputation as one of the premier shooters in the 2012 class, knocked down a handful of jumpers and made a couple of plays in transition. He's very good at coming off screens, setting his feet and letting it fly.

Katin Reinhardt, SG, California Supreme – The 6-foot-5 prospect showed just why USC opted to taken an early commitment from him during a match up with the NJ Playaz. Reinhardt is known for his shooting ability, but he's capable of doing much more. He handled the ball well against pressure, showed off his impressive vision and mixed in a couple of deep jumpers.

Jacob Hazzard, SG, California Supreme – While Reinhardt was making plays, Hazzard was knocking down shots. His long-range shot was falling and he hit more than a dozen three balls against the Playaz. A 6-foot guard, Hazzard not only hit spot-up jumpers, but he worked in shots off the dribble and scored it in transition.

Jeremy Johnson, SG, Alabama Challenge – Easily the most productive player for the Challenge, Johnson, a 6-foot-4 wing, made play after play against the Houston Hoops. Johnson was active, athletic and attacked the basket with some aggression. He knocked in a three-pointer, hit a floater and rebounded the ball at a high rate. Word is he's a legit quarterback on the gridiron, but if he wants he could have a future in hoops as well.

Brian Bridgewater, PF, Houston Hoops – The roster books read 6-foot-6, 230-pounds, and while he may not even be the listed 6-6, he plays much bigger. A strong, physical athlete, Bridgewater plays with energy and intensity. He'll challenge shots at the rim, rebound in and out of his area and throw down dunks on defenders if they get in his way. He had a productive outing against the Challenge.

*Jeffrey Moss, of Alabama Challenge, spent a good amount of time playing on the ball. A solid athlete, Moss made plays at the rim and showed a nice floater when he attacked the basket.

*Moss' teammate Alex Hamilton made plenty of plays for the Challenge as well. To go with the three-pointer he knocked down, he corralled a handful of offensive rebounds and attacked the rim.

*You won't find many prospects in the 2012 class that can let it fly like Myles Davis. He buried a number of three-pointers in the Playaz win over California Supreme.

*Ricardo Ledo listed Kentucky, Connecticut, UCLA, Texas, Providence, Syracuse, Florida and Florida State as schools showing strong interest. He said he's hoping to take an unofficial visit to Kentucky in the near future.

*Kyle Anderson said Georgetown, St. John's, Seton Hall, UCLA and Florida are the schools he's hearing from the most and most interested in.

*Olivier Hanlan, a guard for the City Rocks, said Notre Dame, West Virginia, Virginia, Boston College and Iowa are all keeping tabs on him.

Tyler Cavanaugh said Davidson, Sienna and Vermont have offered him a scholarship. Syracuse, Boston College, Michigan, Providence and Cincinnati have been in contact with him.

Darrick Wood said majority of the Big East is after him. He listed Villanova, St. John's, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Connecticut and Virginia Tech.

Jeremy Johnson, who said he's receiving quite a bit of interest for football, said Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State have reached out to him for hoops.
