Hoop Group UA Jam Fest: Top Performers

The Hoop Group Under Armour Pitt Jam Fest was a loaded event with some of the top players and teams in the country. Several high level performances took place, headlined by Trayvon Reed.

Size: 7-2/240 |
Quick Take: One of the best prospects in the 2014 class, Reed is taller, stronger, and more athletic than last year. He dunks everything he can, and is a game changer on the defensive end with his ability to protect the rim. Add in that he has excellent hands and can really run the floor, and it is easy to see why nearly every school in the south has him high on their radar.

Size: 7-9/205 |
Quick Take:This is a kid just loaded with natural talent. He has big time athleticism, the ability to score at all three levels on the floor, and a ton of versatility. Now he doesn't always put it together, and at times he can disappear, but for the most part during the weekend he did good things and showed why he will be a highly rated and sought after player.

Size: 7-7/195 |
Quick Take: There is a lot to like with Morgan. He has very long arms, is an excellent athlete, and has a great ability to rebound the basketball. On top of that he is just scratching the surface of how good he is going to become. Once he adds strength it is over. Still against his age group he was at times completely dominant and showed some big time ability.

Size: 6-5/205 |
Quick Take: Harrison didn't play as well as he is capable, yet he was still able to dominate games. He is a high level athlete with size, intelligence, and skill to play the position. When he needed to takeover he did, and when he needed to facilitate he did that as well. Just a big time kid with big time ability, even on a weekend where he wasn't at his best, he was still one of the top performers.

Recruiting: Maryland, Kentucky, Baylor, Villanova

Size: 7-0/250 |
Quick Take: There is no questioning the type of talent that Towns is. He has all the natural ability with his size and skill to be an impact player, and was a dominant force at times in leading his team to a 16-and under title game appearance. With all the skills needed to be a threat from the center position, this kid is shaping up to be one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the class.

Recruiting: Rutgers, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Villanova, Seton Hall, St. John's, Florida

Size: 7-6/175 |
Quick Take: In helping his Team Loaded squad to a 16 and under championship, Cody was one of the top performers. He shot the ball very well from the mid-range, and then also was aggressive going to the glass and rebounding. Also he put forth good effort on the defensive end, and overall did everything his team needed. Maybe a bit of a ‘tweener, he just knows how to get things done.

Recruiting: Wake Forest, North Carolina State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina, Miami

Size: 7-6/190 |
Quick Take: Like his brother, Caleb was instrumental in helping his team to a tournament title. He was a little bit better down low both attacking the rim and rebounding, though he also showed off his outside shooting. A good athlete, he proved he could defend multiple positions and had the versatility to do a lot of things on the floor.
