Reebok: Final Day Recap

PHILADELPHIA – The final day at Reebok's All-American Camp ended with an all-star game and camp championship. Senior big man Ryan Rhoomes made waves during the event and was strong in the championship game.

Michael Cobbins, PF: He's now responsible for the most frightening injury of the summer. Cobbins came down after going for a board, landed awkwardly and got bumped. His knee went one way and his body another. For the better part of 10 minutes Cobbins writhed in pain on the court. After an ambulance took him to the hospital, the news came back: dislocated knee cap, no early signs of ligament damage. Cobbins appears to have dodged a major bullet but will be done for the summer. To say everyone in the building was relieved would be an understatement.

Ryan Rhoomes vs. Sidiki Johnson (2011): This matchup took place in the championship game. Rhoomes finished off a strong breakout type performance by faring exceptionally well against Johnson. He's a big kid who seals and scores inside. You can tell his confidence is growing and this is going to be a guy that Big East schools evaluate and eventually offer. Johnson himself was good at camp and ran into a nice challenge in Rhoomes.

Donte Williams, C/PF: Give the kid credit, he's had a good run here. Definitely a mid-major big man, he'll be a guy bigger schools look at closely as the month develops as it'll be up to him to push them into offers. Made face ups and converted inside. Has a body with upside.

Waverly Austin, C: Again, another guy BCS level schools are looking into. Would thrive at the C-USA and A-10 levels. Has the body, improved since last year. Room to become a better finisher if he learns to play through contact.

Jarell Eddie, SF: Quietly assembled a very strong camp. Instead of succumbing to the peer pressure and jacking shots, Eddie played it straight. Took (and made) good shots, rebounded and was consistent over the two days we watched.

Bobby Ray Parks, SF/SG: The son of a former Memphis player, the left-handed wing was responsible for making shots and got himself into the lane to make plays. He'll straddle the mid-to-high-major fence for the time being should he develop as expected.

Kori Babineaux, SG: After watching him a few times you begin to see that he's not only a shooting specialist but has more scoring tricks in his bag. Would definitely like to see even more off the dribble but the touch and range from this Folsom, Calif., native is impressive.

Tyrone Johnson, SG/PG: The Jersey guard has much of the Big East looking. He's well built, accepts contact and could be a true combo guard.

The final day at Reebok was sparsely attended by head coaches which came as a surprise. …

There have been a lot of defections from camp on the final day. My take: that's a bad idea. Organizers offered up invites and it's a privilege to attend camp. Kids should finish what they started and plan accordingly. Some good players who were putting in nice work bolted and let with unfinished business. …

Waverly Austin lists Georgetown, Maryland, Virginia, Florida State, Arkansas and Georgia. … Cameron Ayers hears from Clemson, Georgetown, Michigan, Virginia, Temple, Davidson, LaSalle and St. Joe's. … Jordan Clarkson has offers from Tulsa, TCU, North Texas, Indiana State and San Francisco. Ole Miss, Georgetown, Baylor and Oklahoma State are looking. …

Shane Larkin's list reads Clemson, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Ohio State and George Mason. …
