EYBL: Day Two, Part B

TORRANCE, Calif. - It was another long day of plenty of good basketball at the Nike EYBL's third session. Here's a rundown of the second day of action, which saw more impressive showings from players like Brandon Ashley and Dominic Artis of the Oakland Soldiers.

Jarnell Stokes, PF, Memphis YOMCA: The big man was a rebound machine for YOMCA, keeping his squad in the game against Mac Irvin Fire. Even though he didn't get many touches on offense, Stokes was his normal physical, hard-working presence in the post, fighting for every rebound, ending up with 13 for the game. He's got to demand the ball more, but he's an unselfish player who does the little things to help his team win.

Anthlon Bell, SG, Memphis YOMCA: Bell helped YOMCA get out to an early lead by draining from beyond the arc. He eventually cooled off a little, but still ended up with 15 points, 9 of which came from three. The three-point shooting is there but the more that Bell can build his offensive arsenal around it, the higher the level he'll be recruited at.

Steve Taylor, PF, Mac Irvin Fire: With Jabari Parker not at his normal level, someone needed to step up for Mac Irvin and Taylor came calling. Taylor played with great effort throughout the contest and showed his range by hitting a few from outside. Taylor competed down low and got to the line. He ended up leading the game with 17 points due to his effort and outside shooting ability.

Anthony January, SF, ICP Portland: It wasn't January's game against the St. Louis Eagles, as the shot wasn't falling from beginning to end. He ended up with 5 points on 2 of 14 shooting, many of which were jumpers. There is nothing wrong with an off shooting game, but January could have used his length and athleticism around the basket, where he should usually be able to get easy buckets at the high school level.

Caleb Dressler, C, ICP Portland: The center plays hard in the post and his effort helps him get the most of his talent. He didn't get too many touches, but was tough on the glass on both ends of the court and played solid defense. He will continue to get mid-major offers and it wouldn't be a surprise if schools at a higher level gave him serious consideration.

J.T. Flowers, SG, ICP Portland: The skinny shooting guard has a nice first step and is good at creating his own shot. He missed a handful of threes, but did do a good job from midrange and driving to the hoop, finishing with 16 points.

Cameron Biedscheid, SF, St. Louis Eagles: The outside shot wasn't there, but Biedscheid was terrific driving to the hoop. He's got good handles and is so smooth going to the basket, as ICP Portland defenders just couldn't stay in front of him. He showed some nice finishing ability and also threw down a couple high level one-handed dunks. He ended up with an impressive 28 points.

Ricardo Gathers, PF, Louisiana Select: Gathers struggled a little bit against the length and athleticism of Brandon Ashley and Aaron Gordon inside. When Ashley was out in the second half, Gathers was much better, attacking the rim. He wasn't finishing as well as normal and still isn't converting his midrange jumpers, but his bull in a china shop mentality combined with his strength and athleticism is always going to make him a threat when he's on the court.

Dominic Artis, PG, Oakland Soldiers: The slender point guard does a terrific job of creating for his teammates both in the half court and transition game. He takes care of the ball and while the scoring hasn't been going this weekend, he makes his teammates so much better, it doesn't matter.

Brandon Ashley, PF, Oakland Soldiers: Ashley didn't play a ton against Louisiana Select but when he was in the game, he did an impressive job defending against Ricardo Gathers, who is significantly stronger than him. He continued to play hard on both ends and his offensive arsenal has made significant strides over the past year.

Katin Reinhardt, SG, California Supreme: Reinhardt has a sprained ankle and it was clearly bothering him on Sunday as he was mostly relegated to being a three-point shooter. Reinhardt hit 2 of his 3 attempts but was in pain the whole game and never really got going.

Justin Anderson, SF, Boo Williams: Anderson had by far one of the most impressive showings of the event against the New York Gauchos. He was lights out from three, was aggressive driving to the hoop and also showed a nice ability to back in smaller guards before either spinning and going to the rim or drawing a double team and passing to an open teammate. He played with a competitive spirit throughout the contest and put the team on his back, leading Boo Williams to a victory.

Tony Parker, C, Georgia Stars: The big guy used all of his power to put himself in position to get the ball, but when he got it he didn't just muscle his way to the basket, as he showed a nice spin move to create some space and get an open look from close to the hoop. He played hard on both ends and did well on the glass.

Jabari Parker, SF, Mac Irvin Fire: It wasn't Parker's game against YOMCA, as the shots just weren't falling. Despite the fact that he did miss 11 of 17 attempts, the reasons why he's such a highly touted prospect are obvious. He was impressive creating space from his defender in getting his own shot when he wanted, while also being able to take the ball to the rim when he wants. Parker also played tough defense throughout the contest.

Isaac Hamilton, SG, Oakland Soldiers: It was a very good day for Hamilton. He was hitting it consistently from three, but also showed his normal craftiness in getting past his defender and hitting from midrange. He's playing within a team concept and getting teammates involved. Hamilton has definitely been a helpful addition to an already very talented Soldiers squad.

Kameron Chatman, SF, ICP Portland: The young kid is an intriguing prospect that looks like he has much more growing to do before it's all said and done. The lefty was on point from three against the St. Louis Eagles and made some nice passes in the blowout win.

Anthlon Bell claimed offers from Florida State, Missouri, Arkansas, Auburn, Memphis and Kent State. He also mentioned attention from Michigan State and Georgetown.

Caleb Dressler says he has offers from San Francisco, Cal Poly and Portland State. Washington, Oregon and Stanford are showing attention. He said Washington and Oregon stand out for him. He said he'll visit Washington on June 4.

Richard Longrus claimed offers from UCLA, Gonzaga, St. Mary's, Santa Clara, New Mexico and UNLV. He also said he has attention from Stanford, Texas and California.

Dominic Artis listed offers from California, Washington State, Florida International and Nevada, with attention from Oregon, Texas, Georgetown and Louisville, amongst offers.

Michael Qualls gave an offer list of LSU, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Jacksonville and Louisiana Tech. He's had attention from Cincinnati, Kansas State, UTEP and Florida State.

Langston Walker has offers from Colorado, Utah, Boston College and San Francisco. He's hearing from Stanford, Marquette and West Virginia. He said Colorado stands out and that he'll visit California on June 11.
