Roscoe Smith, Will Barton, Mychal Parker, Terrance Ross (Maryland) and CJ Fair (Syracuse) headlined the DC vs Baltimore clash. Kevin Thomas, a 6’8 2011 prospect, raised many ‘a eyebrow’ with his inspired play.
The DC team featured Maryland commit Terrence Ross and Mychal Parker while the Baltimore squad had the likes of Roscoe Smith, Will Barton and Syracuse bound CJ Fair. The threesome of Smith, Barton and Fair proved to be too much for the DC squad.
Barton, a 6’6 Lake Clifton HS SG, played the part of the top prospect on the floor, while sharing the limelight of five Top 50 caliber players. Barton is a really agile and athletic long scoring guard who is smooth while also demonstrating a flair for flashiness. Roscoe Smith is an aggressive and athletic SF who really played well together with Barton. Barton and Smith are also AAU running mates with Baltimore Elite. Their lethal one-two punch proved to be too much for the Maryland bound 6’5 Terrence Ross and the highly sought after 6’7 SF Mychal Parker of Miller School (VA).
Terrence Ross, a Maryland commit, is a freak athlete who was a constant highlight reel during the game while also showing the ability to knock down the jumper with good consistency. Ross is a long prospect with a chance to be a solid defender at the next level.
Mychal Parker, a 6’7 SG/SF of Miller School (VA) came out the gates strong. He smoothly knocked down a deep two to start the game and showed the ability to break his defender down with the dribble and finish with contact at the rim. Parker’s shot is improving at a rapid pace. When Parker did miss, it was by very little. He scored 12 points, of which the majority came in the first half. The effort did not seem to be there defensively, which had been his strong point the prior weekend at King James.
CJ Fair, a 6’7 Syracuse 2010 commit of Baltimore City College, is a quick skilled athlete who can knock down the three ball with consistency. Top 50 caliber player.
Quinn Cook, a 6’0 Dematha PG, played in the 2011 and the 2010 game and didn’t let up in either. Quick and smooth point man that is hard to stop attacking the basket. He is a pass first PG that does a really good job of getting into the teeth of the defense and finding the open man. He does at times dribble a little too much but looks to be a likely high major prospect.
Kevin Thomas, a 6’8 F of St. Johns Catholic Prep, really impressed with his skill set and frame. He played an out of this world first half. He showed the ability to knock down the open three as well as put it on the deck once and hit the mid range two. He seemed to gather every rebound in his vicinity and he has a body where he can add strength seemingly easy. He played the part of an easy mid level pick-up but we will need to see more repeat performance to truly gage his talents.
Grandy Glaze, a 6’7 PF of St. John’s Catholic Prep, played above the rim. His best efforts are in the pre game lay-up line with his out of this world athleticism. Freak athlete with shaky handle at best and a shot that looks in need of serious revampment. However, in the second half, he hit two threes and a mid range jumper which intrigued. Glaze has a great frame and as stressed before his best game is above the rim with earth shattering jams. He runs the court like a body builder and has a high major body type to go along with athleticism. He stands right now as a possible mid level pickup pending his development as a player. Big Upside!
Jordan Omogbehin, a 7’1 300lb monster from Montrose Christian, has a great body, moves pretty well and if given the opportunity will try to bring the rim down the ground. Has a chance to be a high level player but needs to improve his hands and skill-set. He did show on a number of occasions a soft touch around the basket.
Kervin Rameau, a 6’3 wing from Progressive Christian has a great motor and excels as finishing in the open court. LM+
Ronald Williams, a 5-8 Jet Quick point man, is a literal blur with his ball speed and quickness. High energy point man that passes well. LM.
Jamal Lewis, a 5’11 PG of Sidwell Friends, has a burst of speed and is a good passer. He was able to knock down the pull-up jumper on the fast break and looks to be a definite D1 prospect worth tracking in the coming years. MVP of the Game.
Cyrus Jones, a 5’11 SG of Gilman High School, has great body control. He is a score first guard that is an effective finisher at the rim, a place he gets to at will.
Charles Tapper a 6’4 PF out of Baltimore City College is a good athlete with a nice body. Intriguing prospect worth taking a look at in the next couple years to see how he develops.
Daquan Cook, a 6’2 Slasher from City College, is another Baltimore area guard with a relentless effort of attacking the glass.
Derreck Fenner a 6’4 slasher from Gonzaga HS is fast and a good passer who can finish at the rim. Good upside for the young slasher.
