Tyler Honeycutt, 6-6 SF Sylmar (Calif.) High. Honeycutt capped off a very impressive week with a strong showing in the West Coast All-Star Camp Best of the Best Game. Honeycutt showed his versatility in the game, as he knocked down deep jumpers, connected on a couple very nice little floaters in the lane, blocked a couple shots and showed off his terrific passing skill. Honeycutt's passing is really one of the areas that separates him from the other top small forward prospects. He's got great vision and his instincts are outstanding. With his size, shooting ability and passing skills, he's going to be deadly against a zone at the next level. He can play almost like a point forward with his skill set. He's still not yet mature physically and it'll be interesting to see how his body looks a year from now. But with continued development, he projects as one of the elite prospects nationally in the class of 2009.
Derrick Williams, 6-6 PF/SF La Mirada (Calif.) High. Williams also had a very good week and a number of coaches were asking me about him. He's got a very nice body, with good shoulders, and some explosiveness. He plays the game at both ends, he can score on the perimeter or in the paint and he's a willing rebounder/defender. I've been projecting him at the four, but he's got the offensive skills to play the three at the next level.
Jordin Mayes, 6-0 PG Los Angeles (Calif.) Westchester. Every aspiring point guard in the west should take note of how Mayes plays the game. Great decision-maker, no wasted nonsense in his game, great sense of pace and a terrific feel. This guy gets it and it really stands out in a field of players who have no clue how to play the game. He's the best 2010 West Coast point guard prospect I've seen to date.
Thomas Feeney, 6-0 PG Anchorage (Alaska) West Anchorage. Very impressive young point with solid body, good quickness and skills. His shot looked pretty good and he had several nice passes in the junior all-star game. Tough to take too much from an all-star game, but he appears to have considerable potential.
Ramon Eaton, 6-6 SF Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon. Eaton has been one of the more promising 2011 kids for some time now, due to mainly to his length, athleticism and frame. This week he started to show progress with his ball skills. When he's knocking down jump shots, he looks like a potential elite prospect. Still has a ways to go with his feel and decision-making, but he's got some serious tools.
Jonathan Davis, 6-5 PF/SF Simi Valley (Calif.) High. Davis is a very promising young forward with ball skills inside and on the perimeter. He's still growing into his body and his ultimate level will probably depend on how his body ends up. But he's got a very good understanding of the game for a young kid and a high upside.
Amir Garrett, 6-3 SG/SF Las Vegas (Nev.) Sierra Vista. Long wing showed some ball skills and potential. One to watch in the future.
Alex Carmon, 6-1 SG Long Beach (Calif.) Poly. Good-looking body and frame, with some intriguing skills.
