Live in AC: Day One

ATLANTIC CITY - Reggie Cameron had his sharpshooting on display on night one of the Live in AC event.

Reggie Cameron, PF, Playaz Basketball Club – A stretch power forward at the highest level, Cameron absolutely had it working from deep. He was on fire shooting the basketball, and the defenses made him do nothing to get out of rhythm. Cameron isn't a great athlete and doesn't move well laterally, but he has a great understanding of how to get open and his ability to fill it up from deep can be very tough to handle, and he proved that in a big way on Wednesday evening.

Mike Young, PF, Playaz Basketball Club – Young is an inside-out threat, and he showed that on Wednesday. He was hitting his three pointers, but didn't just settle for that shot. Instead Young first worked inside and then moved out. A solid athlete, Young rebounded fairly well and blocked a shot or two. Overall it was a good balanced showing for him.

Rysheed Jordan, PG/SG, Philly Pride – The good Jordan showed up for his team in leading them to a nice win. A kid with all the athleticism and natural ability in the world, sometimes Jordan can be a bit out of control. Still when he has it working he is special, and he had that. Jordan was making shots, getting into the lane, and making solid decisions with the basketball. He needs to be more consistent with games like this, but it was good to see him back up a solid performance from last weekend with this one.

Miles Overton, SG, Philly Pride – A very solidly built outside shooter, Overton got hot at times and really put the game on ice with his shot making. Overton also has a decent ability off the bounce, but he was settling mostly for his jumper and for the most part making them. He is right on the high-major borderline, and with coaches looking on he was impressive.

Rondae Jefferson, SF, Team Final – As always Jefferson brought his high energy game to the table. He had a few more turnovers than usual, but still the floater was working, he was an animal on the glass, and then also he was finishing around the rim. A good passer, Jefferson can try to do too much at times, but he flat out knows how to get things done on the floor and is always giving energy and effort.

B.J. Johnson, SF, Team Final – A team loaded with wings, Johnson is certainly someone who is doing a lot to standout. He is a good rebounder, can make open jumpers, and is a well above average athlete. With many coaches in the stands he continued his excellent July, and proved that he will have a chance to be someone who plays at the highest level in college.

Dayshon Smith, PG, New York Lightning – Everyone is looking for quality point guard play, and Smith has the floor vision, size, and athleticism to fit that bill. Now he must begin to show more effort on the defensive end, but Smith offensively is a playmaker who can get others good shots. A lot of buzz is beginning to build around Smith, and he is continuing to step up his game.

Jon Severe, SG, New York Lightning – A shooting guard who is capable of putting points on the board in a hurry, Severe isn't afraid to let it fly. He hit several jumpers over the course of two games, and then also showed a decent ability to get to the rim using his strong frame. Severe is a little bit undersized for a shooting guard, but his mindset is clearly to score.

Josh Brown, PG, Sports U – More of a combo guard than a true point, Brown was making solid decisions, getting into the lane by using strength, and was excellent on the defensive end. He isn't the most explosive guard, but he has a good understanding of the game and is a threat to score or pass on every possession.

Kamall Richards, SF/PF, We R 1 – Richards continued his impressive summer by showing his improved ability to play on the perimeter. He is shooting the ball far better than during the high school year, and as always is rebounding well. Richards is a good athlete who needs to improve his ball handling, but the toughness is off the charts and he always plays with a good motor.

Kamall Richards has offers from Nebraska, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Fordham, Long Island, Drexel, Temple, Marquette, St. Joe's, James Madison, and Mississippi State. Also he noted interest picking up from Rutgers, Penn State, Seton Hall, and Cincinnati.

Jon Severe listed Florida State, George Washington, Dayton, Rhode Island, Cincinnati, Seton Hall, and Providence as schools of interest.

B.J. Johnson has claims offers from Villanova, Temple, Rutgers, Clemson, and St. Joseph's. Also interest is coming in from Syracuse, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Xavier, and Virginia Tech.

Reggie Cameron had Seton Hall boss Kevin Willard watching. Also assistants from Michigan, Oregon State, Virginia, North Carolina State, Indiana, and Iowa State were there.

Rysheed Jordan had head coaches from Xavier, Temple, and Villanova looking on.

Dayton boss Archie Miller was front and center for Dayshon Smith.
