The Arizona Preps Fall Showcase
has ended and the Cager Report will start off with our NCAA Division I Prospects
that participated including a High Major prospect in Stephon Lamar 6-0
Sophomore St. Augustine HS (CA)
Here are the NCAA Division I Prospects we observed:
(in alphabetical order)
Colin Borchert, 6-8 2009, Mountain Ridge HS (Ariz)
Borchert is one of the top young posts in the west. He has excellent feet and hands, with an advanced feel in the post. His overall ball skills are very good for a young big man. He's not a real explosive athlete at this point, but he gets up pretty good and he's still a young kid. He is more of a finesse player than a banger. A High-Major Prospect
Marques Coleman, 6-4 2008,
We really like this PG from Cactus. Understanding of the game and the PG position is way above his class. Needs quicker feet, and a jumpshot to make it to the High-Major level. With another year of intense work on his jumper, along with his lateral quicks, Coleman will be a HM prospect. Right now a Mid-Major.
Demetrius Crowell, 6-6 2007 PF Mesa (
Big-bodied four man with very good feet and a high skill level. He's still carrying some baby fat, which we figured would be gone by now. His upper body needs developing. He's got very good ball skills for his size. Will visit
Maurice Jackson, 6-3 2007 SG/PG Gilbert (
Has a very good basketball body and a nice stroke with three-point range.
Brendon Lavender 6-4 2008,
The best prospect in the showcase. Great basketball body. Above average ball skill. Great range. Big time composure with the ball. We would like to have seen him more in transition with the ball but this kid has a bright future at the High major level.
Stephon Lamar 6-0 Sophomore
Mickey McConnell, 6-0 2007 PG Dobson (
Niko Sachs 6-3 Junior Cactus HSLong armed athlete who gets after it. Not a 2G and undersized for a wing at the next level. He makes up for it with his heart and desire on the court. A solid Mid-Major prospect suited for the Big Sky or Big West conferences.
