Adidas Invitational: Day Four

INDIANAPOLIS - A trio of 2016 prospects, led by Minnesota native Amir Coffey stole the show on Saturday. Also 2014 Bryant McIntosh cemented himself as a high-major guard.

Bryant McIntosh, SG, Eric Gordon All-Stars – McIntosh recently re-opened his recruitment, and with his play he is getting a ton of interest. On Saturday McIntosh took things to a new level. In a win over Dream Vision McIntosh was extremely impressive. He scored over 20 points and was a one man wrecking crew in the second half. McIntosh scored when he wanted, mostly by getting to the rim, and then also dished out assists. It was one of those games where McIntosh had everything clicking.

Sam Logwood, SF, Eric Gordon All-Stars – A big time athlete, Logwood showed that with a few highlight caliber dunks. Also Logwood was good at getting to the rim with some hard right hand drives. Still what separates Logwood is his ability to really lockup on the defensive end. Logwood is one of the best defenders in the country, and he showed it in a pair of wins. With a developing outside jumper and lockdown capabilities, Logwood is someone who will get a lot of high-major interest.

Sean Sellers, PF/SF, Eric Gordon All-Stars – A high level shooter, Sellers caught fire against Dream Vision and had some huge moments. Sellers hit multiple threes, and also showed some toughness on the glass by rebounding the basketball. Still it was his hot shooting that was huge in the win, and Sellers did it mostly off the catch, but also once off the bounce.

Joe Burton, SF, Houston Defenders – The beat just continues to go on for Burton. He has been scoring at a high level since April, and nothing changed on Saturday morning. Burton hit threes, used his strength to get to the rim, and overall did about anything he wanted. Burton is just one of the top wings around, and he is proving it every step of the way right now.

Jeremiah Paige, SG, Colorado Hawks – Colorado State has an excellent pledge in Paige. He is a little bit on the shorter side for a shooting guard, but he can really play. Paige was the main scoring option for the Hawks all game long, and really at times put the team on his back. He has a quick trigger from deep, and also is crafty enough to beat his defender off the bounce. While not an elite athlete, Paige showed that he is more than capable in that regard.

J.P. Macura, SF/SG, D1 Minnesota – A high level shooter, Macura hit a few from deep, but never seemed to really get in the groove. Macura had a few nice passes as well, but overall it wasn't his finest showing in his tournament ending loss. The 6-foot-5 wing just never completely got untracked, still you could see some of the talent that led him to being ranked as a four-star prospect.

Peyton Aldridge, PF, Team Work – His team is making a bit of a surprise run through the bracket, and it is Aldridge who has been the biggest reason. He is skilled and smart, and also very productive. Aldridge can step out and hit the jumper or go down on the block and score as well. Not a high level athlete, Aldridge gets it done with savvy and basketball knowhow.

K.J. Walton, SG, Spiece Indy Heat – Wow did Walton put on a show in an afternoon win. The Indianapolis native was in his hometown and had it working. Walton is a good athlete, but it is his ability to finish through contact that is so impressive. When properly focused and motivated, Walton is nearly impossible to contain off the dribble. Add in that he was also hitting jumpers and rebounding at a high level, and there was nothing really that could be done to contain him.

Jalen Coleman, SG, Indiana Elite – Coleman capped off his day with a fadeaway jumper to send his team to the semi-finals, and while that was big, it wasn't nearly his only big moment. Coleman was making plays and scoring all day long. He was dynamic in the mid-range using a variety of shots to score, and then as usual hitting from deep. Coleman is continuing to improve and show why he is one of the better guards in the class.

Amir Coffey, PG/SG, Minnesota D1 – It is tough to put him at just one position on the floor, Coffey is that versatile and confident. At 6-foot-5 with long arms he plays point guard, and also at times will go to the block and be a center or power forward. His skillset is ridiculous for a kid his age, and he has a great understanding of the game. Coffey completely dominated in the second half of a comeback win and showed why he is an elite prospect in the 2016 class.

Justin Jackson, SF/PF, YAACE – It is impressive everything that this young Canadian can do. Jackson was hitting threes with a gorgeous stroke, finishing with athleticism around the rim, handling the basketball, and rebounding. There is just nothing that can be done to stop him right now, and Jackson is clearly one of the elite prospects in his class.

Deshawn Corprew, SF/SG, Team Loaded – Though his team lost, playing up on the 16-and under level, Corprew made an impression. Corprew hit numerous threes, used his strength to get to the rim, and showed off a good ability to pass the basketball. Also he is a very good athlete, and is tough. He is a heck of an athlete, and someone who college coaches are already keeping a close eye on.

Amir Coffey has offers from Penn State and Iowa State.

Deshawn Corprew claims offers from Virginia Tech and North Carolina State, with interest from Wake Forest, Villanova, Virginia, Stanford, and James Madison.

Bryant McIntosh picked up an offer from Missouri following his strong performance.

Head coaches from Dayton, Butler, and Auburn made sure to track Sam Logwood and Bryant McIntosh. Also assistants from Purdue, Xavier, and Iowa were present.

Illinois, Minnesota, and UNLV had assistants watching Justin Jackson and Amir Coffey.

K.J. Walton drew Brandon Miller of Butler as well as Indiana's Tom Crean. Also there were assistants from Xavier, Virginia Tech, Purdue, and Auburn.
