Quick Take: Muhammad led DreamVision to an adidas Super 64 championship game appearance, where he couldn't compete to the best of his ability due to a sprained ankle. Still, it was a big week for Muhammad, who showed why he's one of - if not the - nation's top prospects. Muhammad's competitive edge, work ethic on the court and scoring ability make him impossible to stop at the high school level and nothing was different in Las Vegas.

Quick Take: It takes several viewings of Shepard to fully understand and appreciate everything he does on the court. It starts with his defense, but Shepard also is an unselfish player who thinks pass first, can get to the basket, rebound and is a terrific athlete to boot. Shepard has been a big reason for DreamVision's success over the past two years and he was at his best in Las Vegas.

Quick Take: One of the West Coast's most improved prospects over the past year, Wallace found his shooting stroke in early July and it continued in Las Vegas and Anaheim. Already a tall point guard at 6-foot-4, Wallace always had the handles and passing, but with his shooting making progress, he's cemented his status as one of the nation's Top 100 prospects.

Quick Take: The Colorado commit gets the ball in the paint and goes straight to the basket, either facing his opponent up or backing him in and spinning to the hoop. Scott not only finishes well with contact but he also does a great job of drawing fouls, consistently getting to the free throw line. He's going to be a strong power forward in the Pac-12 that will get plenty of buckets in the paint.

Recruiting: Committed to Colorado

Size: 7-7/220 |
Quick Take: An inside-outside power forward, Loveridge is undersized but strong and talented. He's adept at scoring against taller players in the post, but can also step outside and shoot or take the ball to the hoop. He helped Utah Pump N'Run pull off some impressive upsets at the adidas Super 64, leading his squad to the semifinals.

Quick Take: The UNLV commitment is filled with potential and while he's already a good player, his upside is significant. Right now, Wood is best offensively as a spot up three-point shooter, although when he's around the basket he shows a soft touch around the glass. Defensively he can rebound and block shots. With terrific length and an athletic frame, Wood has the potential to be a very good player in college.

Recruiting: Committed to UNLV

Quick Take: Everyone is in search for the next Jimmer Fredette after the former BYU star eluded scouts to become an All-American. No player should ever be burdened with that comparison, but Emery has some similarities that had colleges following him throughout Las Vegas and Anaheim. Emery's quick release and lethal jumper make him a big weapon as it is, but his handles and strength allow him to take that shot both off the dribble and setting up, so defending him at the high school level isn't easy. He shouldn't be compared to a college All-American yet, but Emery's shooting ability is going to get him plenty of college attention.

Quick Take: What Jackson-Cartwright lacks in size he makes up for in passing, shooting and ball handling. The biggest question about Jackson-Cartwright is his height, but it hasn't stopped six schools from offering him already, even though he hasn't entered his sophomore year of high school, and it's easy to predict that several more offers are on the way. The way he makes his teammates better and goes up and down the court with the ball in his hands are terrific skills and Parker Jackson-Cartwright is a name fans will hear plenty about in the years to come.
