EYBL Session Three: Duke Target Rundown

The EYBL's third session has tipped off in Dallas this weekend and there are several Blue Devil prospects in action. The Scout.com team is in attendance, running down all the action. Here's the recap of those players on the Duke radar.

Matt Jones, SG, Texas Titans – Jones has definitely grown in the past year, but that hasn't limited his shooting touch at all. During a comeback for the Titans, Jones hit several deep jumpers in a row, and brought the team back. He is however limited in how he can score, as he isn't comfortable off the dribble, but defensively he is very good and also he can really stroke it from deep. - Brian Snow, Day Two

Julius Randle, PF, Texas Titans – The first half will be one that Randle would like to forget, but in the second half he got going. Randle was aggressive attacking the rim off the dribble, and then used his strength advantage to power through defenders and score down low. Once he figures out the balance between showing off his perimeter skills and dominating inside, Randle will be impossible to guard. - Brian Snow, Day Two

Julius Randle, PF, Team Texas Titans – The strong and powerful forward caused All Ohio-Red some problems in the second half of the last game of the day. Any chance he could get isolation; Randle attacked and more often than not came up with a bucket. Arguably his best move of the weekend came off a long rebound that he took coast-to-coast and finished with contact. At 6-foot-9, 235-pounds, Randle over powers defenders at the rim and is a very good finisher in traffic. Randle is an elite forward in the 2013 class. - Evan Daniels, Day Three

Semi Ojeleye, SF, Mo-Kan Elite – Ojeleye continued his very strong spring with another impressive performance. He was at his best creating in the mid-range off of a few bounces, but also he hit some perimeter jumpers, and rebounded well. Ojeleye has excellent versatility to his game, and is clearly asserting himself as one of the better prospects in the class - Brian Snow, Day One

Anthony Barber, PG, Boo Williams – Overall Barber was very good. The man known as "Cat" hit deep jumpers, was impossible to stop off the dribble, and then found open teammates for buckets. It was the type of game you want a point guard to have, and he did it at the right time when his team needed it the most. - Brian Snow, Day Two

Allerik Freeman, SG, Boo Williams – It wasn't the best game for Freeman, but he still picked his spots in which he proved to be tough to guard. Freeman hit a pair of threes, and his shot does look improved, and then he scored off the dribble in the mid-range. Now at times he did disappear, but when he was locked in he showed why he is such a heavily recruited prospect. - Brian Snow, Day Two

Joel Berry, PG, Each 1 Teach 1: A physical point guard who loves to attack the rim, Berry made a living getting to the foul line. Berry has good speed with the ball, and once he gets you on his hip is so strong that there is nothing the defender can do. Add in that he is a good shot maker, and it was a nice evening for Berry. - Brian Snow, Day Two

Justise Winslow, SF, Houston Hoops – A unique prospect because of his size and skill, Winslow is a wing prospect that excels when he has opportunities to make plays with the ball in his hands. He's very skilled and is equipped with a strong, powerful frame. He's a talented passer, but is certainly a capable scorer going towards the rim as well. Winslow will also rebound from the guard spot and is a very good defender on the perimeter. - Evan Daniels, Day Two

Joel Berry, PG, E1T1 -- There's been a lot of talk about Berry, a 6-foot lead guard, this spring and on Friday he proved he was worthy of the buzz. Berry, a strongly built prospect, has a great pace to his game, makes good decisions when the ball is in his hands and knows how to create for his teammates. To go with his ability to run a team, Berry is a capable shot maker from mid-range out to three. He's one of the better floor generals in the 2013 class. He scored nine points and tossed out seven in assists in a win over Team Final. - Evan Daniels, Day One

Justise Winslow, SF, Houston Hoops – A very unique wing, Winslow handles some point guard duty for the Hoops and knows how to pass the ball. He found teammates open for good shots, but more than anything he was attacking the rim and doing a great job of getting to the foul line. In a game that was officiated tight, Winslow got to the stripe, converted, and then showed effort on the defensive end on nearly every possession. - Brian Snow, Day One

Jahlil Okafor, C, Mac Irvin Fire – Okafor may just be a junior, but he's developed into the top post scorer in the country. Okafor's body is filling out and he uses his wide frame and strong legs to get deep post position on the block. Once he gets a touch, Okafor can score in a variety of ways. His arsenal consists of jump hooks, short-range shots and he's also starting to develop counter moves. Okafor finished 7-for-9 from the field scoring 16 points and seven rebounds. - Evan Daniels, Day Three

Allerik Freeman is maintaining his top five of Kansas, Ohio State, Villanova, UCLA, and Duke. - Brian Snow, Day Two
