Carson, Calif. We spent Saturday at the West Coast All-Star Camp second session…

Eric Swoope, 6-4 PF North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake. A terrific athlete, Swoope has been killing people the last couple days as he attempts to dunk everything. Great body, very explosive and shot is getting better.

Jordan Gathers, 6-1 SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola. A strong, well put together guard who might play some one eventually. Gathers is another very explosive athlete. Shot is not yet consistent, but when he's knocking them down he looks like a potential high major prospect.

Chris Anderson, 5-7 PG Anaheim (Calif.) Canyon. The brother of UCLA sophomore Jerime Anderson, Chris is highly skilled with a great feel for the game. If he grows just a couple inches, he'll be recruited at a high level.

Robert Upshaw, 6-10 SO C Fresno (Calif.) Edison. One of the elite prospects in the west for 2012, Upshaw had the play of the camp so far with a big-time up and under move Saturday night.

Tyrin Wallace, 6-2 SG/PG Bakersfield (Calif.) High. Good-looking young lefty with a basketball body and good skill level. Shoots it pretty well to stripe and has a considerable upside.

Jordan Gathers said he's been hearing from Nevada, Santa Clara, Fresno State, USC and Pacific, among others.

Eric Swoope listed Davidson, San Diego State, UC Riverside and Santa Clara as schools that have been in touch with him so far.

Eric Swoope had San Diego assistant Bill Carr and Nebraska assistant Phil Matthews watching his game Saturday night.

Gelaun Wheelwright, who recently committed to USC, had Trojan head coach Kevin O'Neill and assistant Bob Cantu tracking his game Saturday evening.

Josiah Turner, who recently made some comments that suggested his commitment to Arizona State may be tenuous, was watched by Kansas assistant Kurtis Townsend and UCLA assistant Scott Garson.
