FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Spiece Run N' Jam played host to some of the top prospects in the country today in the annual AAU national event.

With some of the top players in attendance interested in or committed to Michigan. Below is a breakdown of their performance.

quote

Watching Austin Davis, who committed to Michigan last month, you immediately appreciate his aggressive style of play in the post. He asks for the ball, and when he gets it, he doesn't hesitate to attack the rim. He's not a high riser. He's not super athletic. But he plays tough. You have to appreciate that. He'll need to work on his conditioning. But with the right training program, he should be just fine. Michigan got a bruiser in Davis.

You can't coach size, and Michigan center commit Jon Teske has it. He is a legit 7-footer. He runs well, blocks shots and is a serviceable rebounder. He has the ability to finish at the basket. However, he's not super aggressive calling for the ball. But when he gets it, he can score. He needs to work on his offensive rebounding. He also showed the ability to hit the mid-range jumper.

quote

Sophomore Brian Bowen is a lengthy two-guard who isn't afraid to shoot it from deep. He has the ability to pull up off his dribble and hit the long three. He can also blow by his defender. He can get above the rim when needed. He looks for his angles on the court. He'll also look for an open teammate. He has high potential. He seems very interested in Michigan.

C.J. Walker is a southpaw point guard who has the ability to beat his man off the dribble. In doing so, he usually find his open teammate for an open shot. Also, he can hit the mid-range jumper if you're looking for him to pass and give him space. He does compare well to Derrick Walton, and shows a little flash with his dribble. He's a legit point guard.

quote

Jarron Cumberland already has a college body. He looks like a linebacker playing shooting guard. He's not afraid to use his size to his advantage either. He dribble drives with this best of them, and usually finishes at the basket. He can shoot it from the outside. But his game is taking it down low. He might end up playing three or even a four in college with his size.
