July 30, 2011MORE: Jackson-Cartwright has big day at Best of Summer
ANAHEIM, Calif.- For leading his team into the final four of the seventeen and under division, we profiled Parker Cartwright. But, he wasn't the only prospect who stood out.
Every now and then, the buzz for one player can take over an event. That's what happened Friday with Noah Vonleh. The 6-foot-7 wing from the class of 2013 was impressive again and had everybody in the gym talking about him.
If you can fill it, you can fill it. Marqueze Coleman can fill it off the dribble or the catch and is a guy who gets buckets. The 2012 wing can defend too and is at least an upper end mid major prospect and some high majors are investigating.
Marcus Holt is a long and athletic forward. As a talent, he's worth looks at the high major level. A 2011 kid, whether or not he needs to head to a juco or can qualify by prepping and becoming part of the 2012 class.
Because of his toughness, athleticism and aggressive playing style, Wally Ellenson has started to pile up offers. He's a slasher for Minnesota Pump 'N Run and has reportedly been offered by the likes of West Virginia, Nebraska, Utah and Saint Louis while Minnesota is starting to poke around.
An intriguing wing on the mid major level is Chris Jenkins of the REACH Legends. Jenkins canned some threes and has good size and length for a small forward.
Class of 2013 wing Treshaun Lexington was drawing a lot of looks from coaches at several levels. The thin small forward showed that he's an explosive baseline finisher and he runs the floor.
Playing with Lexington on the Team Bradley Northwest Panthers was Avery Holmes. The Oregonian can shoot, makes good decisions and has mid to high major programs evaluating him.
Several high majors made sure to stop and watch class of 2014 wing Isaiah Bailey from Compton. He's quick, has a feel for scoring and has tools to develop into a very good scorer.
Oregon State-committed big man Maika Ostling will definitely be ready to play physically in the Pac 12. He's a space eater around the rim and has pretty good hands.
Finally, the Oakland Soldiers 15 and under squad has a few guys that show potential. Shooting guard Elliott Smith, is a long and lean class of 2014 guard with a good looking shot. Shon Briggs is an athletic and tough 6-foot-5 forward who likes to attack off the dribble and is an above average rebounder. Rising freshman Ivan Rabb is still very young, but he's already a very skilled passer out of the post, rebounds and finishes with either hand around the rim.
