Southern California Tournaments: Final Day

The first part of the July evaluation period is over and we have some comments on Michael Snaer, Ramon Eaton and Joe Burton, among others...

Carson, Hawthorne, Calif. On the final day of the first section of the July evaluation period we saw Michael Snaer, Perris Blackwell and Joe Burton, among others…

Michael Snaer, 6-4 SG Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde. Snaer struggled yesterday in the game we saw, as his team was out-manned and he had to basically go one-on-five. He ended up forcing some tough shots and got frustrated as the game went on. Regardless, he's one of the elite shooting guards in the country.

Perris Blackwell, 6-7 C Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Etiwanda. Blackwell has made steady progress in the last year and he helped himself with his performances this past week. A big man who knows he's a post, Blackwell is a physical presence inside.

Joe Burton, 6-7 C Hemet (Calif.) West Valley. Burton has good ball skills for a big man and he showed them off yesterday, as he converted many opportunities around the basket. He's a solid mid-major post prospect.

Terrell Stoglin, 5-10 PGTucson (Ariz.) Santa Rita. Stoglin has good ball skills and a nice feel for the game. He doesn't have great length, and he's on the small side, but he's one to watch among the 2010 point guards.

Kyle Boswell, 6-0 SG Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison. Tough shooter with a scorer's mentality. Nice stroke and competes well.

Ramon Eaton, 6-6 SF Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon. He's got the length, athleticism and improving skills. If his feel for the game and focus come along, he's got a chance to be very good someday.

Anthony Stover mentioned Arizona, Uconn, Oregon State and Gonzaga as four schools that have been recruiting him hard. Later in the evening, however, Stover received scholarship offers from Arizona State and UCLA.

"It's a hard game to play if you don't know how." – One of the top assistant coaches in the west.

Michael Snaer had coaches from UNLV, Florida State, UCLA and Missouri on hand for an afternoon game.
