This weekend I ran the Southwest All-American Camp at the Kroc Center in Phoenix.
Anthony Ray (Arizona Preps) and I put together this event strictly for exposure purposes. We had almost 110 players attend the camp with 7 college coaches on hand plus some of the top West Coast scouts.
We had Gerry Frietas (Hoopreview.net), Roy White (West Coast Hoops), Josh Gershon (National recruiting analyst for Scout.com) and Chris Karpman (Sun Devils Source/Scout.com) on hand. Those four communicate weekly to over 200 college coaches which should bring some more exposure to the players.
Here is a rundown of the top 2020 prospects from the event . . .
Kyree Walker W/SG 6’4” 215 Hillcrest
-Walker was arguably the best player in attendance. He was a recent verbal commit to ASU and he backed it up. He handles the ball like a PG, has a great build, strong, very good court vision, supreme athleticism and has amazing body control finishing in traffic through contact. He also showed that his shooting is already improving in the last month or so. He has been working diligently on the shooting gun and he hit many deep 3s throughout the weekend. Overall Walker impressed with his all-around game and plays the game with a high motor/passion.
Dalen Terry CG/SG 6’4” 162 Corona del Sol HS
-Terry is a highly skilled long guard. He plays a smart floor game and he has a smooth stroke to the stripe. He looks to have a 6’7” wingspan or so and still has that baby face that looks like he’s not done growing. He plays the passing lanes on defense and makes smart decisions with the ball in his hand. He can play off the ball and become a big time catch shooter or a bigger CG. He isn’t the super athlete like Walker but his skill, IQ and upside are very high.
Anthony Garza PF 6’5” 170 Shadow Ridge HS
-Garza had a big weekend for the young soph. He has a huge wingspan and he is a high energy player. He is one of the better rebounders in the class and runs the floor exceptionally well. He throws down some nice dunks above the rim and he can face-up from elbow and in. He can handle the ball well for a forward and he has some nice post moves that he can use as well. If he can extend his range further, he will be harder to contain.
Hunter Ruck PF 6’7” 195 Rancho Solano Prep
-Ruck also had a nice outing this weekend. He showed many things to like about his game. He showed off his skill level from 12-feet and in plus rebounded the ball at a high level as well. He also had 4 blocks in one game and actually took a charge. He can find players out of a double team and shows a high IQ. Ruck has a bright future and he looks like a clear top-10 player in the 2020 class currently from AZ.
Xavier Dusell CG 6’4” 170 Mesquite HS
-Dusell only played on Saturday but showed his big upside. He can hit shots from deep plus he is showing that he is becoming more athletic. He did miss the attempt, but he tried to dunk the ball and got way up but hit the back iron which was something I’ve been waiting to see. He has great length and plays a smart game. He can play on or off the ball and score it from all three levels. Dusell holds a Montana offer.
Donovan Yap SG/CG 6’2” 165 lbs Arbor View HS-NV
-Yap is a long baby-faced talented scorer. He can score from all three levels. He has a quick shooting release with deep range. He can get into the teeth of the defense and float it up. He can hit the mid-range jumper and looks like he is still growing. He also is a smart player that sees the court well.
Kendyl Watson F 6’6” 180 Paradise Valley HS
-Watson is a long and talented forward. He likes to face up and shoot it to the 3pt line but showed other wrinkles to his game this weekend. He can handle the ball decently and get to the rim with some quickness plus uses his massive wingspan to steal and block shots. He will need to keep adding to his game but he’s on the right track. He holds a Fresno State offer.
Keyshawn Hall PG 5’10” 165 Undecided-NV
-Hall is a shifty ball handler who plays really hard. He gets into his opponent defensively and sees the court. The lefty loves the floater game and he can hit from deep. He will need to become more consistent from the perimeter but he shows a good burst getting into the lane and he is a tough competitor.
Evan Skeoch SF 6’5” 200 Perry HS
-Skeoch was probably the best I’ve ever seen him play. He looks like a true wing player getting up the court and throwing down on the break plus hitting multiple 3pt shots. He also was handling the ball well and showed nice court awareness making plays for others.
Dayton Harris PG 5’11” 150 Skyline HS
-Harris is an extremely smart player. He is the son of the Hamilton HS coach Doug Harris and plays like a coach on the floor. He makes every correct play that is needed. He can shoot it from mid to the 3pt line and uses his nice length to defend his position. He had some nice blocks and steals in the games I viewed of him.
Kyle Ponzo F 6’4” 185 Hamilton HS
-Ponzo is a consistent shooter from deep and plays physical inside the paint. He rebounded the ball well and held his ground versus bigger players. He showed nice timing blocking shots and he is a competitive player.
