Hoop Group Philly Jam Fest: Day One

PHILADELPHIA - It was a night filled with blowouts and a few upsets at the Hoop Group Philadelphia Jam Fest. One player however stole the show and that was Minnesota native Rashad Vaughn.

Rysheed Jordan, PG, Philly Pride – An absolute jet with the ball, Jordan has great size for the position and excellent athleticism. He can get to places on the court with his dribble that very few other players in the country can. Now he did really struggle to shoot the ball, and then also had a few too many turnovers, but there is no doubting the physical talent that he possesses from the point guard position.

Jeremiah Worthem, PF/SF, Philly Pride – While Jordan gets a lot of the headlines, Worthem is also a very solid player. He showed off an excellent mid-range game, and had several nice moments where he flew in for rebounds out of his area. He will still need to improve his ball handling in order to make the move to the wing full time, but Worthem has a lot of ability and is versatile enough to play either forward spot.

Riley Dearing, SF, New Gain Sports – It was a very impressive game for Dearing. He is a good athlete with long arms, and that allows him to be a good defender. Along with that he has a nice, not great, shooting stroke. Also he rebounded fairly well and was just active. Dearing doesn't do anything that will blow you away, but he is just solid in so many aspects of the game.

Rashad Vaughn, SG, Net Gain Sports – This cat is really good. He is a big time athlete, a great shooter, and plays with an excellent motor. On top of that he isn't selfish at all, and is a very good passer. Also his body has developed nicely in the last year, and now Vaughn is playing his way into very lofty company in the 2014 class. He had near 30 points in his team's winning effort.

Andre Wallace, PG, Net Gain Sports – Just a tough point guard with long arms and a great ability to score in the mid-range, Wallace was the man running the show. He distributes well, and has the look of a kid who will get bigger and stronger. Wallace doesn't get a ton of national attention yet, but he is definitely someone who could find his way onto the high-major radar.

J.C. Show, PG/SG, JB Hoops – In an upset win over Philly Pride, Show was a one man show. He gave Jordan his best shot, and ended up hitting the game winner on a pullup jumper. Show has a great feel for how to play, really can pass the ball, and also is a very god shooter. Now he struggles to defend and doesn't beat his man off the dribble, but his IQ and feel for how to play the game make him someone who should earn a division I scholarship.

Riley Dearing mentioned Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Creighton, Stanford, Drake, Penn, and San Francisco.

Andre Wallace listed off Iowa State, Minnesota, Creighton, and North Dakota State
