Top Performers (In the games I saw)
1- Mario Chalmers -- Confident and quick. Potent and precise. Top 10 player nationally. Took over at times.
2- Uche Echefu -- Great kid. Good player who scores, defends and listens. Stock is rising. Still room to improve skills.
3- Greg Oden --He hadn't had a lot of touches, but leads camp in boards and is a top ten scorer. Stud. NBA.
4- Monta Ellis -- Simply because no one can stop him. Range, athleticism and precision. Quicks galore.
5- Eric Devendorf -- 6-3 SG -- Look out Rex Chapman -- Devendorf is a newer version of you. Step off..
6- Dequan Cook -- 6-5 SG/WF --Can I just tell you how much I like this kid? Tough as nails. Shoots well, slashes and scores.
7- Bobby Frasor -- 6-3 SG/PG -- Hasn't put up big scoring totals -- but he's a stud with the ball in his hands.Great feel for the game.
Top Surprises (players that I had never seen before)
1- Korvatney Barber -- Athletic 6-7 wing. Agressive, mean and ferocious rim terrorist. Look out below.
2- Wilson Chandler -- Smooth 6-7 wing with skills. He glides and scores. Look out Chandler -- you're phone is ringing.
3- Marcus Williams -- 6-6 WF. What a freaking finisher. Does this kid miss? Quick first step. Scores from everywhere.
4- Cyrus McGowan -- 6-9 Skilled PF/C with athletic ability and soft touch. Stock is booming. Big wide body and can move.
5- Jamal Boykin -- 6-7 PF/WF -- Plays hard. Can face and shoot. Does the little things. Boards and hustles. Competitive.
6- Kendrick Johnson -- 6-10 C -- This kid isn't Top 50? Puh-lease? Somebody will get a steal. Beast on boards. Thick and mobile.
7- David Weaver -- 6-10 PF/C -- Skilled and long. Savvy and smart. Liked the Wake bound big. He's better than I thought.
8- Ryan Wright -- 6-9 PF -- Nice looking athlete. Bouncy. Converts. Liked him a lot. Active, aware and anticipates. Live body.
Biggest disappointments (Big reps, not lots of production)
1- Tasmin Mitchell -- 6-7 WF/PF -- The world has caught up with Mitchell. Maybe he'll remain in the top 6-10. Maybe not.
2- Eric Boateng -- 6-11 C -- Not a lot of production from the Delaware center. Needs skill work and needs to stay down low.
3- Alex Ruoff -- 6-6 WF -- One of the best passers at the event, and a good shooter -- but dude is way TOO PASSIVE.
4- Leo Criswell -- 6-9 PF/WF -- Oozes of natural ability. Elite level athlete. Pathetic intensity. Bring it Leo !
5- Brayden Bell -- 6-9 C -- Not mobile or athletic enough. Seems passive. Makes slow decisions. Must improve agility.
