EYBL Dallas: Day Three - Part B

FRISCO, Tex. -- Kyle Davis continued his strong spring on day three at the EYBL Dallas event. Julius Randle, Sindarius Thornwell, Malik Newman and others also managed impressive outings.

Sindarius Thornwell, SG, Team United – At this point, he's been written about quite a bit this spring, but Thornwell, a 6-foot-4 guard out of Lancaster (S.C.) High, has earned every bit of the ink. Thornwell has turned himself into one of the premier wing scorers in the class. His mid-range game is on point, as he's capable of scoring off one and two dribble pull-ups, plus he's tough and strong enough to finish through contact at the rim. He put up 18 points and eight boards in a win over the Georgia Stars.

Kyle Davis, SG, Mac Irvin Fire – Sure he's undersized, but that doesn't affect Davis' productivity level. At 6-feet tall, Davis gets a lot done at the rim and is an electric athlete in transition. Despite his size and thin frame, Davis is a terrific finisher, as he adjusts his shots and is strong enough to finish through contact. Defensively he's a pest and he'll certainly make attempts to grab boards from the guard spot. He scored 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting against Nike Team Florida.

Nick Griffin, SG, Team Takeover – There's been a lack of shooters lately, so a guy like Griffin will certainly be a hot commodity. The 6-foot-2 guard can let it fly from three, but also buried a pair of mid-range jump shots in a win over the Jackson Tigers. Griffin totaled four triples against the Tigers and had a stretch where he made three straight jumpers.

Josh Hart, SF, Team Takeover – On a loaded Takeover squad, Hart managed to standout with his toughness and ability to score in transition. At 6-foot-5, Hart has a big frame and doesn't mind getting physical with the opposition, both on offense and defense. In the open court, Hart uses his body well and shields defenders well around the rim.

Stanford Robinson, SG, Team Takeover – Over the past year Robinson has made advancements in his game. Most notably, Robinson, a standout at Fairfax (Va.) Paul VI, has improved his jump shot. Against the Jackson Tigers he buried a pair of three-pointers, but also worked in two jump shots off the dribble.

Julius Randle, PF, Team Texas Titans – The strong and powerful forward caused All Ohio-Red some problems in the second half of the last game of the day. Any chance he could get isolation; Randle attacked and more often than not came up with a bucket. Arguably his best move of the weekend came off a long rebound that he took coast-to-coast and finished with contact. At 6-foot-9, 235-pounds, Randle over powers defenders at the rim and is a very good finisher in traffic. Randle is an elite forward in the 2013 class.

Jahlil Okafor, C, Mac Irvin Fire – Okafor may just be a junior, but he's developed into the top post scorer in the country. Okafor's body is filling out and he uses his wide frame and strong legs to get deep post position on the block. Once he gets a touch, Okafor can score in a variety of ways. His arsenal consists of jump hooks, short-range shots and he's also starting to develop counter moves. Okafor finished 7-for-9 from the field scoring 16 points and seven rebounds.

Jalen Lindsay, SF, Georgia Stars – What a difference a year makes. Lindsay, a 6-foot-7 athletic forward, is much more confident in his perimeter game than this time a year ago. He's turned himself into a pretty good shooter off the catch out to 22-feet and he pumped in a few deep jumpers against Team United in a morning game. The next step in his development is improving his ball handling and middle game.

Justin Jackson, SF, Houston Hoops – A smooth scorer, Jackson used his developed mid-range game as a weapon against Southern Stampede. At 6-foot-6 Jackson had a size advantage over the smaller Southern Stampede guards and he used it. Jackson hunted mid-range jump shots and also backed down the shorter defenders and shot over the top. Jackson's offensive ability is refined. He's skilled, shoots it well and has a great touch on his floater. He scored 14 points on 4-for-7 shooting in a win over Southern Stampede.

Kelly Oubre, SF/PF, Houston Hoops – On a team full of high major wing prospects, Oubre, a 6-foot-6 combo forward, has still managed to standout. A pretty good athlete, Oubre uses his size and leaping ability to snag rebounds in traffic. On the offensive end, Oubre shoots the ball well off the catch from 15 to 22-feet and proved he could go off one dribble and pull-up. Oubre scored 11 points against Southern Stampede. He also added five rebounds.

Malik Newman, SG, Jackson Tigers – One could make a case for Newman as the top freshman scorer in the country. At 6-foot-4, Newman's ball skills and scoring moves are advanced. He uses jabs and hesitations to create space for his shot attempts and he's a very good shooter both off the catch and dribble.

*He didn't get a ton of minutes, but Gavin Schilling, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound power forward, is intriguing. He was active when he was in the game and made sure to try and rebound.

*Brian Bridgewater is a tough, hardnosed combination forward. At 6-foot-5, possibly 6-6, Bridgewater uses strength and powerful frame to score around the basket. Bridgewater's offensive arsenal also includes a catch and shoot jump shot.

*Tadric Jackson, a 2014 shooting guard, went 6-for-9 from the field and scored 17 points in a win over Team United. The 6-foot-2 guard also went 3-for-4 form three.

*The nation's top junior – Jabari Parker – scored 16 points on 6-for-14 shooting against Nike Team Florida. He also added four rebounds in the win.

*Ohio State commit Marc Loving is intriguing because of his size, skill and shot making ability. The 6-foot-7 lengthy forward likes to face up defenders and shoot mid-range shots or step out and shoot jumpers off the catch at the three-point line.

*Gavin Schilling said he picked up four new scholarship offers – Auburn, George Washington, Penn State and LaSalla. He also has interest from Michigan State, Wisconsin and Washington State.

*Mac Irvin Fire guard Kyle Davis claimed interest from Nebraska, Oklahoma, Xavier, Marquette, USC, LSU, DePaul, Wichita State and UNLV.

*Will Ferguson picked up a scholarship offer from Long Beach State after the evaluation period. He also has interest from Virginia Tech, Virginia, George Mason, VCU and Villanova.

*Andrew Wiggins listed Kentucky, Florida State, North Carolina and Syracuse. He was also adamant that he wasn't paying much attention to the recruiting process at this time.

*Stan Robinson is taking an unofficial visit to Indiana on Monday. Villanova is also heavily involved in the four-star prospects recruitment.
