More Las Vegas Evaluations

More evaluations from Las Vegas, including Terrence Williams, Matt Mortensen, Derrick Jasper, Marcus Williams and others...

The Pump N Run Easter Tournament, along with the Las Vegas Spring Showcase, had some of the best players in the west competing in Las Vegas last weekend. Here's a look at some more players who drew our attention.

Terrence Williams, 6-5 JR SG Seattle (Wash.) Rainier Beach. Williams played point guard with his Rotary Select team, but he'll be a wing in college. Big, strong body – he can overpower kids in high school – and a very good athlete. Overall skill level is good, not great. Shot is inconsistent, but stroke isn't bad. Handles well for his size, needs to work on decisions with the ball. Big upside if he tightens up his game. High major prospect.

Marcus Williams, 6-6 JR SG Seattle (Wash.) Roosevelt. Long, with a good frame, and a fairly good athlete. Outside shot was inconsistent in game we saw – release is a bit slow. Nice feel for the game. High major prospect.

Matt Mortensen, 6-5 JR SG Provo (Utah) Timpview. Good body, long arms and has some hops. Very good stroke. Good instincts – understands the game. Nice handle for a wing. High major prospect.

Jordan Wilkes, 6-11 JR C Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola. Wilkes continues to improve every couple of months that we see him. He's growing more comfortable with his body and moves much better now than he did a year ago. Good skills with the ball – nice touch to about 15-17 feet. Needs to add strength, and play more aggressively, but he's developing into a possible high major prospect.

Derrick Jasper, 6-5 SO SG/SF Paso Robles (Calif.) High. Good size and athleticism, nice shot to three-point line. Good ball skills for a wing. One of the elite wings in the West Coast class of 2006.

Tre'Von Willis, 6-3 JR SG Fresno (Calif.) Washington Union. A big-time scorer who can create his own shot and score in a variety of ways. Very good athlete. Among the elite two guards in the west for 2006.

Blake Wallace, 6-6 SO SF/PF Anaheim (Calif.) Servite. Wallace is difficult to categorize at this point – could end up a three or four. Great feel, nice stroke and a good rebounder. A likely high major prospect.

Daniel Deane, 6-8 SO PF Salt Lake City (Utah) Judge. Very good frame – great shoulders – physical and moves well. Decent stroke to three-point line. Strong fundamentals. High major prospect.

Wendell McKines, 6-5 FR PF Richmond (Calif.) High. An intriguing young post player, McKines's future will likely be determined by how much he grows in the next couple years. Very active, good rebounder and good hands.
