Meyers midweek report

The high school season is coming to a close, and some players are going home with a lot of hardware including Jeronne Maymon, who won both a state title and Wisconsin Mr. Basketball. National Recruiting Analyst Jerry Meyer takes a look at some award winners across the country in his midweek report.
Marquette signee Jeronne Maymon finished off his high school career in fine fashion. Not only did the four-star forward take home Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball Award, he also took home a state championship.
Maymon certainly wasn't a one man show for Madison (Wisc.) Memorial High School. 2010 four-star guard Vander Blue actually garnered MVP honors of the DI state tournament, averaging just under 23 points per game over the course of the tournament.
In the state of Tennessee, 2010 five-star prospect Joe Jackson led Memphis to a AAA state championship with a tournament MVP effort which included a couple 30 point plus games. Miami signee Drew Kelly, however, upset Jackson for Mr. Basketball honors.
Like Maymon, Ole Miss signee Reginald Buckner finished off his senior season with a state championship and Mr. Basketball honors.
In Michigan, a lighter Derrick Nix claimed Mr. Basketball honors.
One of the most entertaining high school teams I've ever seen, Rialto (Calif.) Eisenhower High School overcame a triple-double effort by UCLA signee Brendan Lane to win the California DII state championship. Without a player over 6-foot-3, Eisenhower implements a wide open offensive attack based on penetrating and kicking the ball out and an intense all out pressure approach on defense. The man in the middle of this constructive chaos is future Creighton guard Andrew Bock. Poised to enter the Rivals150 when it is reshuffled, Bock went for 17 points, four rebounds and three assists against a box-and-one defense in the championship game.
2009 prospect Lamont Jones has had a strong season for national power Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy. A physical scorer, Jones has successfully made the transition over the year into being a high level point guard. Once committed to Virginia Tech, it now looks like Jones will be running the point for a different program after decommitting from the Hokies this week.
Iowa also lost a 2010 commitment this week. Marshalltown (Iowa) wing prospect Chanse Creekmur has opened up his recruitment.
