West Coast #1: Day One Rundown

Devonte Elliott, Derrick Williams, Josiah Turner and Tyler Honeycutt are among the top players at the West Coast All-Star Camp first session...

Carson, Calif.. The West Coast All-Star Camp first session typically is a bit light on talent, but this year is an exception as there are numerous D1 prospects in attendance…

Tyler Honeycutt, 6-7 SF Sylmar (Calif.) High. Honeycutt looked like Ralph Sampson playing against mostly smaller players. He had a number of offensive rebounds and put backs. He's not going to be challenged in this camp, as he's easily the top prospect in attendance.

Devonte Elliott, 6-8 PF Paramount (Calif.) High. Elliott had a very good showing the first day, playing as aggressively as we've seen him. His shot is getting pretty good out to 16-17 feet and he's got a significant upside with his length and athleticism. Look for high majors to jump on him this month.

Derrick Williams, 6-6 PF La Mirada (Calif.) High. Williams is another player that will dominate in this environment, as there isn't a lot of height in the camp. He's solid in most areas – shot is getting pretty good to the arc.

Robert Smith, 5-10 PG Perris (Calif.) High. Found a nice balance between getting his own and setting up teammates. Good quickness, nice feel and a good stroke with three-point range.

Nuno Muandumba, 5-10 PG Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle. If he were a bit taller, he'd be getting recruited by all the Pac-10 schools. As it is, he's a terrific mid-major prospect. Good quickness and a really nice stroke.

Kyle Richardson, 6-6 PF Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair. Richardson has huge feet and soft hands. He's just starting to figure out how good he can be and there is a significant upside here.

Jordin Mayes, 6-1 PG Los Angeles (Calif.) Westchester. True point who plays with a great sense of pace. Never forces things and generally makes great decisions.

Josiah Turner, 6-0 PG Sacramento (Calif.) High. The top 2011 point guard in the west put on a show in first game of the day, dominating the action with a terrific all-around game. He's as good a passer as I've seen in a sophomore point guard.

Devonte Elliott said he's been hearing from Washington, UC Irvine, Pacific, UC Santa Barbara and George Washington. He said George Washington has offered.
