Among the more promising prospects at the event was Castro Valley (Calif.) High standout Juan Anderson. An under-the-radar wing, Anderson, who played for the Oakland Rebels, played the part of a high major wing.
"I came out with a chip on my shoulder," Anderson told Scout.com. "It was either I'm going to do this or I'm not going to do this. There was no in between. I came out and tried to play the best I could and just be competitive."
Although the Oakland Rebels got bounced from the event in early bracket play, Anderson was able to leave his mark. Then he continued his strong play on the west coast during the rest of the period.
"I feel like with my potential the sky is the limit," Anderson said. "There's always things you can do better, but I won't complain about how I played."
"I'm maturing a lot," he said about his game. "I used to have lapses in my game and I still have a few lapses. That's just normal for a high school player, but I'm starting to eliminate more of those lapses as time goes on."
Since the first evaluation period ended, Anderson's recruitment has changed.
"It's crazy," the 6-foot-6, 180-pound prospect said. "I've gotten a lot more calls and I've gotten a few more offers."
"It's still really early," Anderson said of his recruitment. "I'm considering everybody at this point. I'm just trying to find the best fit for me. I don't want to rush any decision."
When asked about upcoming visits, Anderson cited one PAC-10 program as a school he is planning to visit.
"I want to visit Arizona State. I don't know what my five is going to be, but I know I want to visit Arizona State."
Editor's Note: UCLA is scouting Anderson in Las Vegas this week.
