Triple S: Day One Rundown

MORGANTOWN, WVa. – Brandyn Curry was one of the day's top performers at the Triple S Harley Davidson Shootout.

Brandyn Curry, PG, Char. Royals – Teams searching for a point are eyeballing this Hopewell product. What do they like? The lefty has poise, vision, understanding and a calming influence on a basketball team. Mix in a 4.2 GPA and the crowd should get interesting. He's big time at the mid-major level.

Parish Grant, PG & Denzel Yard, CG, Hood Enriched – They took apart the NC Fire. Grant, a potential mid-level point didn't score a single hoop and controlled the game. He's a serious passer. Yard, a lefty, put it an attack mode and flipped in a bunch of shots.

Earnest Ross, SF/SG, NC Fire – This week is big for him as he's playing for scholarship offers. The body and size are there plus he can get to the rack. The shot was streaky on Monday and his crowd was strong.

Jalen Steele, SG, Tenn. Travelers – The junior shooting guard has a quick trigger with his jump shot and range. He's on the radar as at least a mid-level prospect with the potential to make a leap.

The Royals Blake Smith made enough shots to peak the interest of plenty of programs. … Wakefield Ellison's perimeter game was there early and a lot of schools came back for the night session. … Wing Eddie Frazier of Hood Enriched, needs a post grad season but he'll be a potential mid-level player. …

Wakefield Ellison has offers from UNC-Asheville, Western Carolina and UNC-Wilmington. … Earnest Ross has East Carolina and Wilmington plus said USF recently pulled the trigger. Kansas State, Clemson, Wake Forest, Virginia and Virginia Tech have been looking. … Mike Grace has offers from Penn and Furman. … Brandyn Curry has offers from American, Wright State, Penn, William & Mary, Gardner Webb, Yale, Harvard, VCU and Princeton. …

Kevin Powell like Winthrop, High Point and George Mason. … Jalen Steele, a 2010 guard, has Clemson, Virginia Tech, Valparaiso, Cincinnati and Dayton looking. The Flyers head coach Brian Gregory was in the building. … Parish Grant has Robert Morris and Long Island offers. ….

Tom Crean was front and center for Maurice Creek. Chris Braswell, a recent Hoyas de-commit, is on that team as well. … Crowd for Earnest Ross: South Florida, East Carolina, Virginia, Colorado and a lot of mid-major programs. … Lakeem Jackson had Charlotte's Bobby Lutz and South Carolina's Darrin Horn in the crowd. …
