West Coast All Star Camp, Day One

The West Coast All Star Camp has some very talented younger players....

The West Coast All-Star camp first session got underway yesterday and, while it's not a great camp in terms of upperclassmen, there are a number of very intriguing younger players.

Here's a look at some of the standouts from the first day.

Jake Beitinger, 6-8 SR PF Port Orchard (Wash.) South Kitsap. Beitinger was a bit of a disappointment in the spring, but he played well yesterday. Good size, can face-up out to about fifteen feet and moves well.

Bill Forelli, 6-5 SR SF Gig Harbor (Wash.) High. Forelli falls in the "appearances can be deceiving" category. Doesn't look like a player – until he steps on the court. Gets up very well, extremely active and very versatile. He will open some eyes this summer.

Jake Linton, 5-9 JR PG Edmonds (Wash.) Meadowdale. Very quick and very skilled. Doesn't look like he's getting any bigger, but size is the only thing that would keep him from being a Pac-10 level player. Great handle – one man press break – very good vision, passing ability.

Tyrone Shelley, 6-6 FR SF La Mesa (Calif.) Christian. Long, lean, athletic and very skilled, Shelley is among the best players we've seen in the class of 2007.

Deangelo Jones, 6-2 FR PG Seattle (Wash.) Franklin. Extremely quick and explosive lead guard. More scorer than distributor at this point, but has a chance to be an elite point guard in the 2007 class.

Keith Olson, 6-7 FR C Gardnerville (Nev.) Douglas. Rawboned, aggressive young big man. Skills still developing, but very physical and has a nice feel.
