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 2021 prospects from the event . . .
Glenn Taylor SF 6’4” 156 Cheyenne HS-NV
-Taylor is a nice talent from Nevada. He is very long and he is an athletic slasher who has a huge motor. He defends his position well and gets out on the break well. He also showed the ability to make players around him better with some impressive passes in traffic. Taylor looks to be one of the better incoming freshman from NV.
Anthony Swift F/SF 6’5” 160 Durango HS-NV
-Swift is another big talent. He is freaky long and lean and he is just scratching the surface with his game. He can face-up from 17-feet and in plus score a little inside. He had one of the better dunks of the event which was on a facial in the underclassman all-star game. He is currently weak, but for a incoming freshman, he is right where he should be. He will also be one of the better NV prospects in the 2021 class.
Tyrone Washington Jr. PG 6’0” 160 Cesar Chavez HS
-Washington has a nice floor game. He thinks the game and he can score already from all three levels. He has deep range on his 3-ball plus he can hit the mid-range jumper off the catch and use the floater. He has something close to a 6’4” wingspan and he looks the part of a future stud. Like Taylor and Swift, Washington will be one of the better incoming freshman in AZ.
Ricardo Sarmiento PG 5’10” 143 Cesar Chavez HS (Pictured)
-Sarmiento is another incoming freshman with a big game. Like Braxton Baum, he started his day going 7-7 from the field and hitting three 3s and two mid-range pull-ups. That is currently his best skill. It’s a next level skill that the young Sarmiento has picked up easily. The mid-range pull-up is a nice weapon to have for his HS career and into college. He has a huge motor to defend and guards his man all the way up the court if needed be plus sees the court well.
