FCP Las Vegas Spring Showcase Recap

Las Vegas, Nev. – The best talent in Las Vegas participated in the Fullcourt Press Las Vegas Spring Showcase on Tuesday. Among the best prospects in attendance was Godwin Okonji, of Findlay Prep.

Much like the Fall Showcase in November, Dinos Trigonis put together an impressive roster for the Spring Showcase at Bishop Gorman High School. Anthony Marshall had a big night, freshman Amir Garrett stood out again and Findlay Prep's sophomore big man dominated the paint during a high level sophomore game.

Raveon Samuel, SF, Canyon Springs – Apparently he's a stud football player, but he wasn't too shabby in hoops on Tuesday. The 6-foot-5 wing has high level hops and finished well around the hoop. He was at his best on fast breaks where he could raise up for dunks or use his body to finish.

Jordan Hill, SF, Bishop Gorman – Hill played in a pair of games at the Spring Showcase and he showed off a nice game. The 6-foot-4 wing is equipped with a strong frame and he uses it well around the rim. He shot it well from deep and knocked down a few threes.

Marshall Has Big Day
Anthony Marshall, PG, Mojave – The more we see Marshall the more we like him. The 6-foot-2 guard slimmed up his frame and has picked up some explosiveness. Other than being all over the rims today, Marshall also displayed impressive court vision and unselfishness in a setting when many play with a me first attitude.

Pierre Jackson, PG, Desert Pines – Jackson didn't meet a shot he didn't like on Tuesday, however the 5-foot-8 lead guard is athletic, fast and has a good handle. He hit a few mid-range jumpers, go to the rim and caught a dunk off of the backboard.

Wade Collie, SF, Silverado – In the junior game Collie was among the prospects that stood out. The 6-foot-5 wing looked improved from last time we saw him. The southpaw drained a few three-pointers and played solid defense throughout the game.

Godwin Okonji, C, Findlay Prep – The late addition to the Spring Showcase certainly made his presence felt. The 6-foot-9 big man dominated the paint by grabbing boards, swatting shots and scoring inside. To go with some impressive post moves, Okonji passed the ball out of the post very well. High-major schools should start tracking him, as he's improved a lot of the course of the year and seems destined to play at the highest level. We charted him with 10 points and 10 rebounds in the sophomore game.

Moses Shows His Talent
Moses Morgan, SF, Palo Verde – Morgan has already built a reputation as one of the better sophomores in the state of Nevada. The 6-foot-5 wing shoots it well, goes after offensive boards and is equipped with a strong frame. Going forward he'll need to tighten his handle and play with more intensity, but he's certainly talented.

Ben Vozzola, SG/PG, Centennial – In August, Vozzola was the story of the Las Vegas Fall Showcase, as he went off for over 30 points. On Tuesday the 6-foot-4 guard seemed to be pressing a little and never got into a good flow of the game. He did, however, make some impressive moves, got in the lane and showed he can use either hand around the rim. Despite missing majority of his jumpers in the sophomore and junior game, he stepped up in crunch time and drained the game winning three-pointer in the junior game.

Landon Littlefield, PG, Lake Mead Christian – We got a tip on Littlefield prior to the game and he lived up to his reputation. The 6-foot guard is scrappy, quick and plays hard. His mid-range game is on point and he knows how to score. According to his AAU coach he went for over 50 on two occasions this year.

Amir Garrett, SF, Calvary Chapel – No one had a better day than Garrett. The 6-foot-4 (maybe 6-5) wing ran the floor and more often than not finished off fast breaks with strong dunks. His athleticism sets him apart from kids his age, but he's capable of doing other things like knock down three-pointers and swat shots.

Moses Morgan, who is planning to play with the I Can All Star's 17's squad this spring, said he's already hearing from a host of schools. The ones he mentioned were UCLA, Arizona, Indiana, USC and California. No one has stepped up with a scholarship offer.

Anthony Marshall claimed scholarship offers from UNLV, Virginia, Miami, Gonzaga, Washington and Colorado State. He said he's planning to make a decision next fall.

Although Elijah Johnson was in attendance he opted not to participate. While sporting a Kansas Jayhawk hoodie, the 6-foot-2 guard said he's getting interest from Kansas, UCLA, Texas, Florida, UNLV and Arizona. Kansas and UNLV have offered.
