The Southwest All-American Camp took place recently on the campus of the Salvation Army's Kroc Center, and did not disappoint - creating an amazing atmosphere for some of the top prospects in the Southwest to showcase their skills in front of a nice crowd of scouts and media in attendance.
The event was absolutely loaded with talented prospects for the future and many lesser known prospects made a name for themselves at this year's event. As a result of this year's event, each prospect had an opportunity to gain maximum exposure to college coaches through the many quality scouts and media that was in attendance for this year's event.
Here is Part II of some of the top 2018 sleeper prospects from this event that helped themselves the most, heading into this month's busy July evaluation period . . .
Donovan Reagan 6-4 SR SF/PF Fairfax HS
Reagan (pictured) has really intrigued me at the last two events that I have seen him perform, and I have loved his unique athleticism and ability to make plays for himself off the dribble - whether from the perimeter or around the paint. He has a good perimeter shooting stroke with range. Has a good mid-range game as well. He has excellent length of body. He has a lot of potential to develop into a serious prospect, and, with continued hard work, he would become a nice sleeper prospect.
Rashad Smith 6-5 SR PG/SG Hamilton HS
Smith has excellent potential as a player with good upside. The player that we see today is not the player that he will definitely become over time. A very good shooter with excellent range on his shot and a quick release. Has excellent size for either guard position, which is a nice attribute. A very good ball handler and passer that sees the floor. Pushes the ball up the floor. A good finisher that can create off the dribble. A good on-the-ball defender. A good rebounder from the guard position. Just a solid guard prospect all the way around and a nice sleeper prospect for the mid-major level.
Jared Perry 6-7 SR PF Paradise Honors
Perry has improved a great deal over the past year, and has developed himself nicely into a serious college prospect. He has really improved his body and has gotten much stronger physically, which has benefited him a great deal. Very athletic with good length and broad shoulders. A solid shooter but needs to extend his range to maximize his potential as a player. Has solid low post moves and a nice jump hook. At his best on put-backs and while finishing. Runs the floor hard and is an excellent finisher while slashing or in the open floor. Has quick lift off the floor. An active rebounder and shotblocker. Has excellent work ethic. Has developed as much as anyone in the state and is now a nice sleeper prospect.
Bryce Meadows 6-2 SR PG AZ Compass Prep
Meadows has really improved since the last time I saw him compete, now focusing much more on being a facilitator and setting up his teammates. He has a very good body and is a good ball handler with leadership qualities - vocal on the floor with his teammates. He has a nice pull-up jumper out to 18-feet, and is a solid three-point shooter with range on his shot. He pushes the ball up the floor to the open man and also is able to get into the lane and finish with a variety of floaters. Solid athlete. A good on-the-ball defender with good lateral quickness. Developing into a solid low to mid major division-I guard.
Jaylin Fleming 6-2 SR PG Arcadia HS
Fleming is a pure-point guard prospect that loves to have the basketball in his hands and make plays off the dribble for himself and his teammates. He loves to pass the basketball and set up his teammates. A floor general. Gets into the lane and finishes around the basket, while also looking for cutters and the open man on the floor. Has an excellent body for a PG, with good size and physical strength. Has a great attitude on and off the floor. A solid shooter that needs to improve the range on his shot to maximize his potential. His value is in running a team and he does it quite well. A winner.
Breven Burnett 6-5 SR SG Cienega HS
Burnett is a skilled combo-guard prospect that likes to handle the ball and make plays for himself and others off the dribble. The younger brother of former Indiana State guard Brandon Burnett. A skilled combo-guard prospect with good size. Can score inside and out. Has good range on his shot, which allows him to set up defenders nicely for drives to the basket. A good rebounder. Has the potential to develop into a low to mid major prospect over time. An intriguing player.
Amarion Cash 6-2 SR CG Mountain Pointe HS
Cash is a long, rangy guard prospect with a nice left-handed shooting stroke with a quick release and good range on his shot. He has a nice pull-up jump-shot which he can get off quite well, and is a good finisher at the basket. Has a solid mid-range game. Capable of playing both guard positions on the floor, but is at his best as a scorer. A good ball handler and passer. Pushes the ball up the floor. A good athlete. A good on-the-ball defender. Has quick hands and feet. Capable of becoming a lock-down defender. An excellent student. A very good sleeper prospect.
