Top Performers: UA All America Camp Wednesday
We wrote before camp that Horne could be a breakout player and he had as complete a game as anybody in the gym on Wednesday night, scoring 20 points, grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out three assists. A 6-foot-6 combo forward who has scored recent offers from DePaul, Kansas State and Minnesota, Horne will likely generate much more interest soon. He hit medium range jumpers, found teammates and showed a high basketball IQ. He added three steals for good measure.
Washington D.C., St. John's College High
The Maryland-bound point guard put together a dynamic performance, as he racked up 20 points and 11 assists. There wasn't a floor general in the building who did a better job of involving teammates, and Cowan was also able to weave in his own offense. In a perfect world he would be a little bigger but his skill and toughness are worth an awful lot.
Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict's HS
The No. 5 player in the class of 2017, Duval had some turnovers and he had to sit for a few minutes as his thumb got popped back into place. Yet he was still extremely productive. Simply put, Duval is a killer off the dribble with a great first step and ability to take bumps and change directions in traffic. He tallied 17 points, five rebounds and four assists
Columbia (S.C.) Irmo
The class of 2017 shooting guard easily outplayed his current national ranking. (He's currently rated No. 69 in the nation in his class.) A natural scorer who has an ease about his game, he went for 19 and five rebounds on an impressive 8-11 (2-4 from three-point range) field goal shooting. Shuler squared to the basket quickly and made the most of his chances. Shuler got to the rim and hit jumpers. He mentioned Clemson (which he recently visited), USC and Wake Forest as high major offers, and more are sure to come soon.
Memphis (Tenn.) Bolton
One of the top defensive guards in the class of 2016, Fisher had his offensive game rolling on Wednesday night. Fisher was good for 19 points and eight assists in a solid all-around effort. Fisher has good speed, plays strong and is a natural leader with whom teammates seem to like playing.
Woodstock (Conn.) Woodstock Academy
The Connecticut bound Rivals150 power forward from the class of 2016 wasn't happy to hear he measured in at 6-foot-5 ½ bare footed during the combine. However he has a 7-foot-2 wingspan to help make up for being a slightly undersized four man. Diarra is also bouncy, has a great motor and rebounds in and out of his area. Diarra finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds on the night.
Dallas (Texas) Prime Prep Academy
There just aren't many guys in high school basketball who are tougher than the Baylor-bound four-star forward. He would assuredly be a terrific football player and takes a gridiron mentality to the floor. Vital plays above the rim, goes full speed in transition and is all about testing his opponent's physicality. Vital just missed on a few dunks that would have brought the house down but finished a few that were pretty nasty in an 18-point, eight-rebound effort.
Baton Rouge (La.) Madison Prep Academy
A four-star shooting guard from the class of 2017, Anderson was very efficient while scoring 20 points and grabbing three rebounds. The few times he missed, he tracked down his shot and made plays. Anderson handles the ball, has plus athleticism and looks like one of those guys scratching at the surface of his ability.
Gig Harbor (Wash.) Peninsula
A rising senior and four-star point guard from the state of Washington, McLaughlin is proof that you don't have to take many shots to impress. A smooth floor general who has an outstanding command of the high ball screen and moving the ball in transition without wasting dribbles, McLaughlin only needed three shots to finish with 11 points, six assists and five steals. Because of his smooth style, his athleticism gets a little lost but it should be noted that McLaughlin tested out with the highest maximum vertical leap in camp at 39 inches.
