KJ Shooting Stars Classic: Wake Targets

AKRON, OH -- The King James Shooting Stars Classic was loaded with talent and Wake Forest had a pair of coaches on hand checking out the competition. Here's a look at a few of their top targets!

Al-Farouq Aminu, PF, Georgia Stars – Throughout the weekend Aminu played inspiring basketball. However, as one might expect when these kids play eight games in a 48 hour span, he wore down in the semi-finals and championship game. Aminu is a versatile prospect that is a more than capable deep threat, although he's been hunting deep jumpers too often.

In the semi-finals game against King of the Court, Aminu struggled to get it going against Delvon Roe's defense. However, he did get loose on a drive and soared down the lane for likely the best dunk of the event. After getting by Roe, no one stepped up in the lane and Aminu threw down a nasty one-hander.

Aminu has a number of scholarship offers, and is being hit by a number of heavy hitters including North Carolina, Wake Forest, Connecticut, Florida and Georgia Tech's. He will likely try and take a few more visits prior to signing in November.

Harris Impresses in Akron
C.J. Harris, SG/PG, CP3 All-Stars – At 6-foot-3, 175-pounds Harris is a combo guard that will be able to play either position at the next level. Harris ran the show for Chris Paul's squad and he showed an ability to push the ball in the open court and finish in transition. He handles equally well with both hands and is going to push the high major envelope before it's all said and done. He continues to pick up legit point guard skills and will likely be recruited to play either position. While he didn't show it here, he's a solid shooter and has some range on his jumper.

Draymond Green, PF, The Family – There was a crowd of college coaches lined up to watch this 6-foot-7, 225-pound PF. The big fella went to work inside by cleaning up misses and snagging boards. Green has a versatile game and is capable of facing up and stroking mid-range jumpers. The Saginaw (MI) High standout will need to work on his conditioning before he gets to college, but he's on the right track and plays the game hard and aggressively.

The one time Kentucky commit, is hearing from DePaul, Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Dayton, Xavier, Tennessee and Wake Forest. Green indicated that he's wide open at this point and the whole recruiting process is starting over.

Teondre Williams, SF, Worldwide Renegades – One of our favorites to watch is Williams because of his tenacity and drive to throw it down on every possession. Although he was inconsistent shooting it, he makes up for it by attacking the rim, snagging rebounds and locking up on defense.

Williams is hearing from a variety of schools including Cincinnati, Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Wake Forest. The early favorite here seems to be Cincinnati. Williams said Cincinnati is his early favorite.
