West Coast All-Star Camp, Day Two

Elijah Holman is the talk of the West Coast All-Star Camp second session...

The West Coast All-Star Camp second session isn't loaded with elite talent, but there are a number of low to mid major prospects in attendance.

The top player in camp, however, is a definite high major prospect. Elijah Holman, a 6-9 junior center from Richmond (Calif.) High, has been dominating in the first two days of action. He's an outstanding shot-blocker and he's going after everything close to the basket. He's got an extremely long wingspan and he plays with great intensity. Look for top programs across the country to be recruiting Holman in the next couple years.

Jonathan Gunderson, a 6-5 senior shooting guard from Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita, has been drawing a lot of attention from coaches. He's got a terrific feel for the game and he's always in control. He's playing point guard in this camp and, while it isn't his natural position, he's showing that he might play some one in college.

Jeremiah Ostrowski, 5-9 JR PG Honolulu (Hawaii) Punahou, is the quickest guard in camp and he's able to get to the basket pretty much at will. He's got a nice shot to the stripe and he's a good defender. Size is the one issue at the next level, but mid majors are taking notice of him at this camp.

Marcus Balinton, 6-6 SR SF Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley, has been a pleasant surprise for us, as we'd never seen him before. He's got a very good body for a wing and he's made several highlight type plays at both ends of the court. His shot is just adequate at this time, but he's got a nice upside.

Todd Lowenthal, 6-0 SR PG Poway (Calif.) High, has shot the ball well at times, but his shot selection could use some work. He's got good ball skills and is at his best when he's looking to set up teammates off penetration. He's definitely among the more skilled point guards in the class and has a chance to be a very good player with better decisions.
