Rumble in the Bay, Part Two

We continue our coverage of the 5th Annual Patrick Dennehy Memorial Rumble in the Bay with evaluations of players such as Garrett Fiddler, Robert Jones, Trey Gross, Edgar Garibay and Jeremy Franklin, among others...

Here are some more player evaluations from the Patrick Dennehy Memorial Rumble in the Bay.

Edgar Garibay, 6-10 SO C Compton (Calif.) High. Garibay was just returning from an ankle injury at this tournament, so we didn't see him at his best. However, he's got a great frame, with good feet and hands, and he has a chance to be one of the better big men in the class. Focus and consistency in effort are areas where he needs to improve. He's been a bit below the radar so far, but Garibay has a significant upside. With continued development, he's a high major prospect and potentially an elite prospect.

Garrett Fiddler, 6-9 JR C Colorado Springs (Col.) Doherty. A big, strong kid with a solid frame, Fiddler moves pretty well and he competes. He's more of a defender/rebounder at this point than a scorer. A possible mid to high major prospect.

Robert Jones, 6-5 JR PF San Francisco (Calif.) Riordan. Although he's a bit undersized at the four, Jones has a live, big body, with very good feet and hands. He's quick off his feet and he has an excellent feel for the game. He has a knack for scoring around the basket, but also has the ability to step out and face up from the perimeter. We like him as a mid major prospect.

Jeremy Franklin, 6-2 JR SG San Leandro (Calif.) High. Franklin has shown a questionable feel for the game in the past, but he had an impressive showing the one game we saw this past weekend. He was drilling shots from deep all game -- mostly off the catch – and generally made good decisions. His handle needs work, and we want to watch him some more before projecting a level, but he looks like he's making progress as a player.

Trey Gross, 6-3 JR PG Stockton (Calif.) Edison. Very long and lean guard with a nice stroke to the stripe. Not the truest of point guards, but made pretty good decisions in the couple games we've seen over the last two months. We want to watch him some more, but he's been fairly impressive in our limited viewings.

Kyle Bullinger, 6-6 JR SF/PF Mountain View (Wyo.) High. Active forward who made a lot of shots in the games we saw. Shot isn't pretty, but he was very accurate over the weekend. Possible low to mid major prospect.
