Top Performers: EYBL LA

Anthony Bennett was one of several players to standout this weekend at the Nike EYBL in Los Angeles.

Size: 7-8/190 |
Quick Take: There's no questioning how much Ashley has improved over the last year. A prospect a year ago, Ashley is a player now. He's improved his range as a shooter, but can also take opponents off the dribble and scores confidently with either hand in the paint. He's improved as a defender and has absolutely cemented his status as a five-star prospect.

Quick Take:Bennett was an absolute monster all weekend long. The athletic and strong power forward was dominant on the glass and always seemed to be making his plays. His perimeter skills continue to improve, though his strength continues to be down low where he is able to dominate. There was no way to question it, he was clearly one of the top performers game in and game out all weekend long.

Quick Take: The Memphis YOMCA big man was a force on the glass all weekend long. He was good around the rim, converting often when given the ball in the paint. He finished with contact and was never out-worked by anyone on the same court as him. It was definitely a successful weekend for's 33rd ranked 2012 prospect.

Quick Take: Grant continues to show that he has put it all together. The small forward with great bloodlines is one of the most naturally talented players in the class, and now he is putting it to good use every time out on the floor. Grant is scoring inside and out, and is showing a lot of aggression going to the rim and with his shot. He was huge in helping Team Takeover stay undefeated in the EYBL.

Quick Take: He looks like a post player who is going to score on size and strength alone, but Parker is much more than that. He's got some skill in the post and when he can't muscle his way for two, he'll use his footwork to get on the board. He was also dominant on the glass, fighting for every missed shot.

Quick Take: Williams is a big time athlete on the wing who has a motor that never quits. Right now he plays either forward slot, but as he continues to grow it is scary what his upside is. All weekend long he was huge for Boo Williams, and rebounded and scored at will against older competition.

Quick Take: It's easy to take a 7-foot-4 prospect like Bhullar and list the reasons why he won't be successful rather than consider why he would be. Bhullar isn't the typical prospect his size and shouldn't be compared to failed experiments before him. He's got high level hands and a good enough skill level for his age and size. He moves well enough for how big he is and has improved his conditioning. He was no question one of the top performers of the weekend.

Recruiting: Committed to Xavier

Size: 6-3/210 |
Quick Take: This weekend Smith-Rivera showed parts to his game that never has been seen before. He showed high level explosiveness with an impressive tomahawk dunk, and then as usual was a scoring machine going to the rim. Also Smith-Rivera made some nice passes and controlled a lot of the games for Spiece. Overall he was just a near impossible matchup from the backcourt with his savvy, strength, and feel for the game.

Recruiting: Louisville, Xavier, UCLA, Georgetown, Texas, Baylor

Size: 7-6/190 |
Quick Take: The physical wing showed a good combination of knowing when to take over a game and understanding when to defer to a teammate whose offensive game is rolling. Anderson had some big moments as a scorer - especially from the outside - but also did a good job of creating for and deferring to teammates, while always remaining a leader. It was an impressive weekend for the four-star prospect.

Recruiting: Committed to Virginia

Size: 7-7/215 |
Quick Take: A versatile wing, Jefferson did it all for Team Final. He ran the show at times as a point guard, and also played down low as a power forward. With his size and ability to handle the basketball he is a tough cover for any defense, but it is his motor that separates him from other prospects. No small forward in the country attacks the offensive glass quite like Jefferson.
