The Cager Report #4
The Full Court Press All West camp is providing an unbelievable experience for every Arizona athlete in attendance. Players are given the chance to compete in front of a gym full of college coaches and scouting services, against some of the best competition in the west. Any potential DI athlete back home in AZ is missing a HUGE opportunity. Is it a risk? You bet, but if you can't show what you got over this 3 day camp, you probably are not at the level you think you are…
A number of players came back strong in day #2 and with a repeat performance Wednesday, will raise their stock at the FCP All West Camp!
Here is a ranking of the top performances Tuesday…
Top Performers Day #2
1. Demetrius Crowell 6-6 Jr. Mesa
Came back today and played like he had a purpose. We have never seen the D-Train play with this intensity for a long period. With continued development and strength, Crowell will see his recruitment skyrocket over the next year and a half.
2. Shawn Deadwiler 6-3 Sr. South Mountain
The term "interesting" has been following Deadwiler around the last 2 days. We know first hand a WCC school is "watching closely" and with a continued solid performance, and continued strength/skill development could see his recruitment come much earlier than later.
3. Taylor Rohde 6-8 So. Pinnacle
Strength/experience holding him back, but you can see he has the "potential". Needs massive upper body overhaul. Confidence needs build-up to compete effectively at this level. A "one to watch". And coaches are watching...
4. Kevin Hassett 6-7 Sr. Desert Mountain
Hassett has never played better. Aggressive, confident and is shooting the ball. Really has helped himself, especially among the Ivy's in attendance. This lanky wing needs 15lbs up top. Solid wing who can stroke it…
5. Nick Witherall 6-3 So. Saguaro
Witherall played very well today. Came out confident and showed it on the court. The mid-range player is almost non-existent today, and Witherall could make a great package for a MM with continued development and solid mid-range game.
The next 5:
Phil Benson 6-8 Sr. Horizon
Benson played better today. Size and strength make him a must follow for the LM's. More Wednesday but this week is helping him. Foot speed and ability to finish are the ?
Brock Entner 5-10 Sr. Pinnacle
Entner put on another solid PG performance. A solid outside J helps him bigtime.
Ricky Berry 6-4 Sr. Paradise Valley
Had another solid day. PLAYS HARD every play. Could catch the eye of a LM.
Matt Rosinski 6-2 Sr. Ironwood
Had a solid day. Can stroke it from 3 and has the intensity it takes to play at the next level. Size hurts, but could earn his way with his consistent performance. More to come…
Jeff Battle 6-2 Sr. South Mountain
Played harder today. Battle is no PG, and needs to run the wing where he is best in transition. Shows signs of a LM prospect. Consistent performance over a long period is his key.
