Stars Shine At Indianapolis' May Classic

This continuum from the week's previous article follows five of the top Midwest players as they let their talents do the talking at the May Classic in Bloomington, IN.

REDFORD, MI - This continuum from the week’s previous article follows five more players from the May Classic in Bloomington, IN. They all have talent and mentioned in alphabetical order:
Jonathan Lee’s talents are known in Michigan as the 6’1 left-handed combo guard’s game needs no translation when playing on grand stages for the Common Bond –Lee 17u team. In the May Classic, he was an effective floor general on either end of the court and was efficient in the mid-range and from deep. He also did a good job of getting to the rack and he wasn’t afraid to go after rebounds in the paint.
The 7’ BJ Mullens (Ohio Basketball Club) was one of the top prospects at the May Classic and is one of Scout’s top ranked players. This weekend he confidently stroked the three, knocking down about 40-50%. He also battled in the post against the solid forwards on the Meanstreets 17u at Assembly Hall. I like his movement on the court as his impressive footwork detoured and blocked shots over the weekend. Mullens has committed to bring his versatility to Ohio State U.
The powerful 6’7 forward Manuel Negedu may have been the May Classic’s outstanding player and the Arizona commit’s physical composition stood out among his peers. His dunks were off the chart and he broke a net in warm-ups…yes, the Assembly Hall crew replaced the net. The Indian Elite 17u team is one of the best in the country and Negedu brought the frosting as he finished with efficiency. His quick hops and footwork were instrumental offensively and defensively.
6’3 combo guard Walter Offutt (Indiana Elite 17u) showcased the ability that should make his future Buckeye fans proud and opponents weary. The rising senior knocked down jumpers from a top the circle, pulled up on the run, handled the ball in all situations, and finished on his way to the rim. He took advantage of the SoCal All Stars’ smaller guards and did a good job of feeding the post.
Stephen VanTreese is still gaining his strength after a slight bought with illness in April and early May. The 6’8+ rising junior did a lot of damage near the rim and ran Assembly’s court well. He is one of the ‘09’s top players in the nation according to and Inside Prep He is being heavily recruited by schools in the Big Ten as well as teams from the South Eastern Conference.
