Spring Fling: Breakout Performers

WAYNE, N.J. -- Jimmy Salmon's Spring Fling provided us with a great look at the future talent in the east coast. Who stood out the most?

Quick Take: The Fairfax (Va.) Paul VI star dominated the 15's division. Not only did he lead Team Takeover to the 15's crown, but he left New Jersey with the MVP trophy as well. At 6-foot-7, 230-pounds, Derrickson has a legit jump shot, an impressive scoring package from inside and out and is a terrific rebounder. In just five months he's transformed his body and has the look of a high major prospects.

Quick Take: Running the show for the Team Takeover squad was this 6-foot-1 guard. Crawford, who was forced to the sidelines with an injury for most of his freshman season at Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga, is a tremendous passer. Although Crawford does have an ability to score both from three and at the rim, it was his ability to facilitate and the plays he made in transition that really stood out this weekend. Crawford is tracking as a high major freshman prospect.

Quick Take: The best prospect of the weekend came from the Team Scan 15's bunch. Since last summer he's grown to 6-foot-9 and he's turned into a dominant force on the defensive end. Using his ridiculous length and impressive athleticism, Bryant blocks everything in his vicinity and is a willing rebounder as well. To go with that, he runs the floor extremely well, has a nice set of mitts and can face up for mid-range jump shots.

Quick Take: Outside of Bryant, the most promising post prospect of the weekend is this 2015 center. At 6-foot-9, Govan has a big, strong frame that he's still learning how to use. Govan impressed with his terrific set of hands and touch around the basket. He's already developed a go-to move (jump hook over left shoulder) and scores on the block with ease. If defenders don't take away his go-to move, they'll be in for a long night.

Size: 6-2/185 |
Quick Take: The brother of Allan Ray was one of the best scorers of the weekend. In fact, the 6-foot-2 guard showed an ability to score form all three levels. A strongly built guard, Ray used his powerful frame to score through contact at the rim, but mainly hunted mid and long-range jump shots. He helped Team Scan fight their way to the championship of the 15's division and was the primary reason they made it that far.
