Second evaluation period preview

After covering seven events during the first evaluation period, will provide coverage from five events during the second stretch of play in July.

Event Website: Nike Peach Jam
Reporting Staff: Brian Snow, Evan Daniels
Top Teams: BABC, CIA Bounce, Spiece Indy Heat, Team Takeover, The Family, Houston Hoops, Each 1 Teach 1, Oakland Soldiers, Cal Supreme, Mac Irvin Fire, Meanstreets, All-Ohio Red, Bluff City Legends, Arkansas Wings, Texas Titans, Boo Williams

Looking Forward to: Assuming Jabari Parker is close to healthy and plays, his matchup with Andrew Wiggins has the potential to be special as they are the top two players in all of high school basketball. Also can CIA Bounce prove doubters wrong and come home with a title, will Wes Clark repeat his impressive performance at LeBron James Skills Academy, how does Julius Randle play in relation to the others, and which of the young bigs like Dakari Johnson and Jahlil Okafor step up and lead their team.

Looking Forward to: Can anyone touch Florida Elite? They are playing in a few games at the event and it will be interesting to see if they are challenged. Also how will guys like Egbunu, Mostella, and Powell look in a team setting after excelling in camp settings during June and July. This event is somewhat under the radar and should have its share of excellent players and top notch games.

Also, Darin Johnson has really put his name on the map over the last week and it will be interesting to see what high major programs are following he and Dakarai Allen's Play Hard Play Smart AAU team around.

Looking Forward to: Hunter Myers is a player who had a huge spring and is just outside of the Top 100, so he'll be an important player to get a good evaluation of. This camp should be loaded with good young prospects, including California Basketball Club, which had high major programs showing up to all of its games last week.
