NIKE: Day Two Notables

Several potential NC State targets took the court on the second day of the Nike All-American Camp. Evan Daniels was on the scene and he has the latest on Jamelle McMillan, Jerai Grant, Julian Vaughn, Chris Wright, and Dorenzo Hudson.

Chris Wright – PG – 2007 – On the second day of camp Wright put all doubters aside as he stepped up and made play after play for his camp team. He runs the floor and leads his team as well as anyone in this class. You can't sleep on his jumper either as he knocks them down from deep at a good clip. His most impressive move of the day came when he was running the break. When he reached the wing he quickly spun in between two defenders and dropped one of the nicest passes of camp.

Dorenzo Hudson – SG – 2007 – Hudson had it rolling today. He finally used his athleticism and deceptive quickness to get to the basket. Hudson has a strong build and good size for a guard, but he must improve his jumper. It actually looks good when it leaves the hand but the deep ball hasn't been going down much lately. Regardless Hudson is a solid player and will do fine at whichever high major school he ends up at.

Jerai Grant - PF – 2007 - This was my first look at Grant and I was rather impressed. He is definitely still raw, but you can see the potential. He plays hard, has long arms and he's at his best when he's around the basket waiting for tip in opportunities. Grant also showed off a mid-range game as he knocked down a couple of 10-footers.

Julian Vaughn – PF – 2007 – This kid continues his Nike Camp tear as there hasn't been a big that could handle him in the paint. He post moves are dicing up defenders inside, and he's got a soft touch in close range. The 6-8, 231-pounder looks to have lost some weight and he said that could be because he's been running two miles a day for the past two weeks. Vaughn said that N.C. State was in his top three prior to Coach Sendek leaving now he lists North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Washington, Kentucky, Virginia and Kansas.

Jamelle McMillan – PG – 2007 – A lot of people question McMillan's lack of scoring, however McMillan stepped up all day today knocking down three pointers and running his team. With McMillan you know you're going to get solid play and defense, and if the three pointers start going down his stock will go WAY up.
