Suwanee, Ga. was home to plenty of top notch talent last week for the inaugural Adidas Superstar Camp. With several top 100 seniors, and even more talented underclassman, here's a look back at some of the things learned…
After IMG Academy incoming freshman Michael Beasley made his impressions
Friday, another member of the 2008 class came out on Saturday. Milwaukee PG
Korie Lucious was playing on the same team as top SR PG Mario Chalmers, and at
times outplayed the Kansas commit during the week. At 5'10, and around 150
pounds, Lucious made what may have been the play of the tournament with a
powerful put back dunk over the back of an opposing big man in the underclassman
Fellow class of 2008 member BJ Mullins of Columbus, Ohio also earned All-Star
recognition. The 6'10 Mullins showed good skills on the floor, and should only
get better as he gets older and stronger.
Mike Krzyzewski was one of several big name college head coaches on hand
Saturday. He was seen watching future PG Greg Paulus go against Javaris
Crittendon in the morning, and earn All-Star co-MVP honors later that evening
(along with Pulaski, TN F Tyler Smith). He also saw Michael Paulus, Greg's
taller and thicker younger brother, in action.
Brooklyn, N.Y's Nyan Boateng may have a better future on the gridiron than
the hardwood, but as an explosive 6'2 SG, he could make a big impact
collegiately in both sports should he desire.
Niagara Falls, N.Y SG Paul Harris was perhaps the most dominant player in
camp. The thick junior drove the lane and scored at will, taking home co-MVP
honors in the underclassman All-Star game (sharing the title with Fresno, Cali.
C Robin Lopez).
2007 G Nolan Smith has a final 3 set in his mind, Louisville, Syracuse, and
Duke. The Chevy Chase, Mary. native said "coaching" is what sets them
above the rest, although if he sprouts to 6'6 or taller as he expects, those
three may have another suitor to fight off.
Rashad Woods' prolific scoring on the weekend went by the wayside due to a
wrist injury, but the Houston, Tex. SG still played well. Illinois, Arizona, AZ
St. UConn, and. almost all of the Big 12, are in the hunt, with the senior still
