Vegas: Day Three, Part A

LAS VEGAS -- Our attention was on the youngsters on day three and B.J. Stith, Isaac Hamilton and Bo Zeigler were among the top standouts.

Bo Zeigler, SF, Michigan Hurricanes – The wiry wing out of Michigan is already ranked among Scout.com's top 75 and he's probably due a bump in our next rankings. At 6-foot-6, Zeigler has impressive size and length at the wing spot. In a game against one of the Belmont Shore teams, Zeigler got to the rim and finished a number of times through contact. He's a future high major basketball player.

Isaac Hamilton, SG, Team Jennings – He started slow, but with Hamilton it doesn't take long for him to heat up. He pumped in 23 points in a loss to the Southern Kings. He hit three three-pointers in the last 10 minutes, including two off the bounce. The 6-foot-3 guard looks like he's added weight through his shoulders and his frame is starting to fill out. Hamilton is one of the better scorers in the 2013 class.

David Griffin, SG, Hoopstars 15's – A scoring machine, Griffin looked to put up points just about every possession. The lefty from Louisiana hit four three-pointers in the first half and made his way to the rim in the second session. Griffin didn't have an issue creating space for shot opportunities and showed an effective floater in the lane.

Justin Hollins, PF, Hoopstars 15's – Hollins is equipped with impressive physical attributes. At 6-foot-7 he runs the floor with ease, will contest shots on the defensive end and is a pretty good athlete. Hollins didn't get the ball on the block, but the lefty did hit a 12-foot jump shot in transition. He's far from a finished product, but he's an intriguing long-term prospect.

Doudmy St. Helaire, SG, New Heights 15's – Similar to his older high school teammate Terrence Samuel, St. Helaire is a physical 6-foot-3 guard that finds ways to get to the basket. A pretty good athlete, St. Helaire finished well at the rim and doesn't mind a little contact along the way. He didn't attempt many long-range shots, but was able to knock down a pull-up from 18-feet. He has the look of a future high major wing.

B.J. Stith, SG, Team Loaded 15's – The Martin twins have already received a good amount of ink. But their teammate is certainly deserving of some ink himself. At 6-foot-4, Stith is a wiry two-guard with some athleticism and a pretty good-looking jump shot from long range. The future high major guard has good genes too, as his is the all-time leading scorer at Virginia and played in the NBA for years.

Cody Martin, Caleb Martin, SF, Team Loaded 15's – The twins both stand 6-foot-6 and are known for their skill. They each hit a three or two and showed good touch around the basket. Cody mixed it up more inside and seemed to enjoy posting up, while Caleb hung out on the perimeter. At this stage, both are tracking as high major players. It'll be interesting to see how they develop and how much taller the two get.

Chris McCullough, PF, Team Scan – For the second day in a row I stopped in to see the 6-foot-8 lengthy forward. Although he wasn't quite as active as he was on Saturday, McCullough still showed his immense talent. McCullough's best play of the day came when he caught a pass in transition, bounced it between his legs and laid it up over a defender. There's still some developing to do, but he's a heck of a talent.

Daniel Hamilton, SF, Team Jennings – Although he's not quite the scorer his brother Isaac is right now, Hamilton is certainly making strides. In a tight contest with the Southern Kings, Hamilton let the game come to him and was able to knock down a pair of mid-range jump shots and put back a miss in a second half run.

*The New Height 15's group has a pair of impressive big men in Tyshawn Myles and Alex Wolf. Both stand 6-foot-7 and are guys that should be paid attention to as their careers progress.

*Tyrone Johnson, a 5-foot-11 lead guard, has his moments for the New Heights 15's group. The lefty is quick and shoots it especially well from mid-range.

*Skylar Spencer looked much better at the Fab 48 than last week in Milwaukee. The 6-foot-8 big man has an impressive frame equipped with long arms. He swatted a few shots and scored close to the rim.

*Jordan Washington, a 2013 post prospect, has a big, wide body and a nice set of hands. He mixed it up in the paint and had a few finishes during the game I took in.

*Team Loaded 15's had a pair of guards that caught my eye. Brehon Britt and Jonathan Williams handled the lead guard duties and they are both quick guards that can get into the paint.

*Yesterday it was Conrad Chambers that was impressed with his skills on the perimeter for Team Scan. Today it was Shavar Newkirk. The 5-foot-11 guard attacked the basket and seems to always find a way to the paint.

B.J. Stitch has a scholarship offers from Virginia. He also has interest from Virginia Tech, Penn State and Providence.

The Martin twins have had interest from Wake Forest, Tennessee, Xavier, Elon and High Point. It was noted that UNC has sent mail.

The Indiana Elite vs New Heights 15's game had Michigan, New Mexico, IUPUI, Indiana, Purdue, Butler, Louisville and Indiana State in the stands.

Tad Boyle was the only coach watching the Colorado Hawks 15's group. They had a few good prospects, including incoming 8th grader Darren Davis.

Team Loaded 15's, which includes the Martin twins and B.J. Stith had assistant coaches from Virginia and Ohio State watching.

Bo Zeigler had Duke, Michigan State, Illinois, Ohio State and Central Florida watching him during a late game.
