ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.- Florida State signee Okaro White was definitely the top dog at the Nike Team Florida Workout and Exposure Camp, but this event is more about finding prospects such as athletic 2011 forward Chris Bryant.
Chris Bryant 6-foot-7 power forward Talahassee (Fla.) Rickards HS
Bryant made good use of his impressive length throughout the day, snagging rebounds and extending to the rim for some impressive finishes. There is an athletic bounce to Bryant's high energy game. Skill wise he is still rough around the edges, but the potential is there for Bryant to develop into a high major prospect.
So far Auburn, Florida State and Georgia are showing a little interest.
Running the point a lot for his team, Burbage not only made shots but also handled the ball and passed it at a high level. His length and instincts also served him well on the defensive end and on the boards.
Burbage is hearing from Jacksonville, Elon and Furman, but expect his stock to go up.
Wilbekin has a good feel for the game as a point guard who sees the court and can make the open shot. He is not going to wow with his athleticism, but he has a good head for the game and a solid skill set.
Not exactly sure how polished Lockhart's game is, but he had the best speed with the basketball of all the guards at the event. He regularly got to the rim and had some nice finishes against contact.
Okaro White 6-foot-8 power forward Clearwater (Fla.) HS
White was on another level than the competition in terms of athleticism. He also is continuing to improve his skill game. It is quite possible that he will develop into a combo forward who can both play in the high post and on the wing for Florida State.
Eric Williams 6-foot-8 power forward Wesley Chapel (Fla.) Wiregrass Ranch HS
To his credit, Williams did not back down in his match up against White. Williams aggressively pursued the ball in the lane and finished some strong dunks. He also effectively attacked the basket off the dribble from the high post. His athleticism and length also made him a factor around the rim on the defensive end.
Williams is hearing from Florida, George Mason, Murray State and Jacksonville. He also stated that South Florida is pursuing him with the most vigor out of all his schools.
Butler played with impressive aggression in the lane. He was one of the events most aggressive rebounders and better scorers off traditional post moves. His quickness off the floor allowed him to finish at a high rate in traffic.
Arkansas-Little Rock, Coastal Carolina and UNC-Greensboro have checked in on Butler this fall. Radford and South Carolina State are also showing interest.
Will Yeguete 6-foot-7 power forward Melbourne (Fla.) Florida Air Academy
Along with Butler, Yuegette was one of the top rebounders of the event. His energy level and aggression pursuing the ball was just too much for much of the competition. Yuegette also showed a comfort level playing in the high post. He was poised with the basketball and had some nice slashing drives to the basket.
This fall Sam Houston State and Niagara have checked in on Yuegette. He is also getting varying amounts of interest from Florida, South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama, Nevada, Central Florida, North Florida and Charleston.
Keith McDougald 6-foot-2 shooting guard Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny HS
McDougald was perhaps the best scorer out of the guards at the event. Strong with the basketball, he can drive it left or right and shoots a quality pull up jumper. He should be able to play some point guard as well as shooting guard at Louisiana-Lafayette, where he recently committed.
Harold Doby 6-foot-6 small forward Oldsmar (Fla.) Christian HS
Doby is a big bodied forward with a solid skill level. His strength and skill level will allow him to play both inside and outside as a combo forward at Georgia State, where he also recently committed.
