15. Louis Barraza, 6-4,
Long armed athlete who is more of a wing than guard. His development with the ball and experience in the backcourt will help. Can shoot it from 17 but looks more comfortable attacking the glass in traffic. Solid defender. We need more time to get our handle on what level he sits at right now. Another that 2 years at the Juco level could benefit him tremendously.
Javon Jones, 6-3, Guard,
This kid is explosive! Quick hops and attacks glass with no fear. Finishes in traffic. Needs development from 15-17ft. Has tools to become a solid MM prospect. Lacks basketball skills facing the basket, but with continued development and a possible stop at a Junior College, Jones has a chance. Another we are projecting down the road.
Lloyd Hickinson, 6'6", Wing,
Hickinson gets little publicity in the club circuit but he is legit. Another long-armed athlete. Great basketball body. Needs improvement with ball skills and his 15-17ft. jumper. Can defend and plays hard. Attacks the glass with aggression. Two years down the road this kid could be a the get of this class behind Johnson and Bayless. He sits at #13 as we project his worth in the future.
12. Justin Wesoloski 6-6, Wing,
Surprise! We think this kid has some major upside. Long armed and athletic, Wesoloski has a bright future in college basketball with continued development. The unknown star for the Toro's. Strength and experience is the key. A MM prospect with a red-shirt year is the ticket.
11. Alex English, 6-10, SR Post,
You can't teach 6-10. Long armed under-skilled post that can get up and down the floor. O.K hands. With continued upper body conditioning, and foot speed improvement English has a chance to develop into a solid MM prospect. Many schools will take a hard look at this potential legit post man.
10. Mickey McConnell, 6-0 SR PG
9. Kramer Knutson, 6-8 SR C
Didn't play in the spring and, as a result, hadn't received much exposure heading into July. Knutson is drawing interest from a number of mid-major schools with Stanford of the Pac-10 leading the way.
8. Kendall Wallace, 6-4 SR PG
Talented prospect that can play either guard spot in college. Great size for a PG. Smart playmaker who can hit the open jumper. Has "Vanderbilt, Texas Tech, UNLV, Arizona State, St. Mary's, Wyoming, Northern Arizona and Penn State," looking at him after the Spring/Summer evaluation period. Teammate of #3 prospect Harper Kamp
7. Justin Johnson, 6-8 F
Long armed shooter. Athletic and smart. Needs to develop more physically but has a great basketball frame. Ball skills need improvement. Can stroke it from 3. Could turn into States #2 prospect come 2007 signing period.
6. Demetrius Crowell, 6-7
Big-bodied four man with very good feet and a high skill level. He's still carrying some baby fat, but he's got a young face and some bounce. He's got very good ball skills. Good stroke with three-point range, passes and handles well. A potential mid to high major prospect from Mesa High
5. Ty Abbott, 6-4 SR G
4. Maurice Jackson, 6-2 SR SG/PG
Kamp, 6-7 SR C/PF Mesa
