The AAU circuit begins this weekend, and StateFans will be at the Boo Williams Invitational in Hampton, Virginia providing the latest on several N.C. State prospects.

Here's a brief summary of some of the premier teams and potential Wolfpack targets scheduled to be in attendance:

Georgia Stars
SF Rasheem Barrett (PICTURED) - Small Forward prospect is an integral member of the Georgia Stars. Atlanta native had a strong junior season.

F Jay Brown - Big-time forward prospect who can work effectively in the post or on the perimeter. Some think he will have a huge summer on the AAU circuit and be a major player for the Stars.

C Alade Aminu - 6'10 shotblocker from Stone Mountain, Georgia. Just sixteen years old, Aminu is still growing and developing his offensive game.

Miami Tropics
SG David Huertas - One of the top shooters in the country. Attended the Hoop Jamboree and played his way into the Nike All-American Camp. Native of Puerto Rico. Junior season was his first in the United States.

Friends of Hoop
PG Mitchell Johnson (PICTURED) - One of the top PGs at the 2003 Nike Hoop Jamboree. Excels at running a team. He's a heady player with a gift for setting guys up. Leave him open and he'll burn you from deep.

PF Jon Brockman - Physical banger. Moves well, but not especially explosive. Instincts and desire make him a very good rebounder. Offensive game limited outside of the paint. Tough and competitive. Likely high major recruit.

PF Micah Downs - Long and slender, Downs reminds some observers of a young Mike Dunleavy. Good stroke beyond the three-point line, good passer and a live body. A likely high major recruit.

Charlotte Royals
SG K.C. Rivers - Really can score. Averaged over 20 as a sophomore in high school. Named to the all-tournament team at the 2002 Dell Curry Shootout. Very proficient with his jumper to medirum range and will make 3s. Great student. Transferred into Oak Hill Academy and gets good minutes. Struggled some with his outside shot as a junior but has deep range. Offered already by a number of ACC schools.

Team Florida
F Keith Brumbaugh (PICTURED) - The lefty post player has all kinds of tools. He's great at putting himself in the triple-threat position. He'll pull the trigger to 3-point range but can go by his man using the dribble. Will score in the post and chase some shots on defense. Could be one of the best prospects to come out of the Sunshine State in a long time. 2nd team all-stater as a junior.

F Arminus Urbutis - A native of Lithuania, Arminus is a skilled power forward who will play in the post for Team Florida. Should get plenty of high-major looks.

G Luc Mbahamoute - At 6'7 the Cameroon import excels in the open floor with his high skill level. High school coach feels that he will end up as a point guard on the next level.

SG Keaton Grant - Shooting guard prospect should log plenty of minutes for Team Florida. Has nice range on his jumper and good athleticism.

Tenn. Travelers
SF Jonathan Adams - He's the state high jump champion in Tennessee. Wears a size 17 shoe. Mother played college basketball at N.C. State and the Wolfpack will surely evaluate him this summer.

Greensboro Gators

William Graves (PICTURED) - (06 recruit) Talented wing player who has the ability to play on the perimeter. Plays for one of the top High School programs in the state (Dudley). Attended Nike Hoop Jamboree as a rising sophomore.

Kevin Swinton - Transferred to Dudley after a freshman season of hoops at Southeast Guilford. Nickamed "The Franchise." Great body and has post scoring skills. WAKE FOREST COMMITMENT.

The Family
PG Chris Douglas-Roberts - Long, lean and in the form of a Shuan Livingston clone in terms of body style. Fun-loving prospect can handle it and has a flair for passing. Attended 2003 Nike All-American Camp. Increased his scoring average considerably from his sophomore to junior seasons. Plays three different spots on the court for his high school team and runs the point for his AAU squad.

Illinois Warriors
G Josh Tabb (PICTURED) - Tabb plays at the tiny Class A school tucked in the corner of Southern Illinois, six hours from Chicago. Can create off the dribble and set up teammates in the half-court or transition. Has combo guard skills and is an above-average passer... with a streaky jumper.

F Julian Wright - One of the top ranked members of his class in the state of Illinois. Has range on his jumper and will block shots inside. Terrific prospect. For the sake of his team, he temporalily switched to the point guard. Team lost just twice during regular season. Remains a small forward prospect in college.

StateFans will have the latest stats, interviews, reports, and photos on these prospects and many more at the Boo Williams Invitational. Also, Recruiting Analyst Dave Telep will provide daily reports from courtside in Hampton, Virginia.
