NTF Fall Workout: 2010 & 2011

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Typically, camps are dominated by guards. The Nike Team Florida Fall Workout was just the opposite. Okaro White was the top dog in the gym but forward Will Yeguette did his best Dajuan Blair and pulled down 50 rebounds in three games!

Will Yeguette, PF: The most impressive effort of the morning session belonged to this versatile forward. Yeguette manned up with 21 points and 15 rebounds but he wasn't done. In three games, the uncommitted senior amassed an astonishing 50 rebounds (19 in one game)! Showed that he's not only an energy guy but has ability as a passer. Made one 3-pointer but did work inside with athleticism and intensity. An impressive day to say the least for hit native of Central Africa who grew up mainly in France.

Okaro White, SF/PF: The was little doubt who the best prospect in the building was. White's transformation to small forward is nearly complete. Keeping in mind he's a young senior, he's progressing nicely. Plenty of bounce at the rim and the jumper, which was improved this spring, continues to get better.

Harold Doby, PF: In his second game, the Georgia State pledge had 11 and 10. Powerful 6-foot-6 power forward is a good pick up for the CAA. He's strong, plays through contact and is handling the ball well. He can rebound, dribble it and start the offense.

Eric Williams, PF/C: Young senior is a long, athletic post player. Runs the floor, decent instincts and has some aggression. Will need to get much stronger but in time could find himself in the mid-level range.

Dennis Mavin, CG: A mid-major combo, Maven's gift is off the drive where's acrobatic and adept as a finisher. He's best suited to play in a two-guard front where he's cast as a scorer who can assist with handling duties alongside a natural point. The best finishing guard in camp.

Jason Pimentel, PF: Improved since the last time we saw him. Maybe a shade over 6-foot-6, he's a guy that not only has a motor that runs but also boasts savvy as a player. Can play to mid-range and he outworked the kids he was matched against.

Adonis Burbage, SG: In a camp setting, you get a quick look and he passed the early morning test. Looks like a wing with a solid jumpshot. Ball handling will need to improve but he can expect interest to come from mid-level programs.

Chris Bryant, PF: In a perfect world, he tacks on a few more inches. Love his live body and how he plays with athleticism. Likes to face and shoot it to mid-range. Definitely has a chance to play at the high-major level.

In our mind, the big winner today was Yeguette. Elite mids have to strongly consider him. So far, few programs have committed to recruiting him but that should change during the final few days of the period. …

Like 2010 center Orlando Parker was a MEAC level big man; he's 6-8. … Chris Uhle (2011) has grades and size. Reaction time needs to improve but potential is there because of his body. … Scottie Wilbekin excelled in the drills. You can tell he puts a lot of work into his game. Only saw one camp game but he'll be a guy mids keep tabs on in the junior class. …

Santoine Butler, a native of South Carolina, is a mid-level prospect with some bounce and can work inside. Would like to see him focus and keep the effort consistent. … Liked guard Josh Castellanos, a combo who knocked down his fair share of shots. … Combo forward Keith Matthews should be able to earn a Division I scholarship in a smaller league. …

Obviously when you get 50 boards, you're sticking back some of your own shots as Yeguette did. What was impressive was the intensity with which he pursued his errant shots. Kid was determined. …

Eric Williams has heard from George Mason, South Florida and Jacksonville. He has not taken the SAT. … Adonis Burbage has heard from Jacksonville, Furman, Elon. … Pimentel has an offer from Stetson with interest from Richmond, Fairfield, Old Dominion and Central Florida. … Will Yeguette is going to visit Nevada. Purdue has interest. Sam Houston State will get a visit. …

Mavin has Marshall, Wichita State and Auburn keeping tabs on him. He'll wait to boost his grades and sign in the spring. … Chris Bryant lists Georgia, Auburn, Florida State and Connecticut as teams that have shown early interest. …
