LAS VEGAS -- Here is a look at who stood out on Day 4 at the adidas Super 64 and Las Vegas Classic:
Noah Vonleh (Haverhill, Mass./New Hampton)
2014, PF, 6-8, 220 pounds
Vonleh was the player of the day. When you’re his size and cause the kind of havoc he does in the lane, you’re a problem for defenders. His length allows him to erupt for rebounds in traffic. He caught one almost behind his head and then began the break. In his class a lot of guys are getting love, but no conversation of top-five players is complete without him.
Derrick Walton (Detroit/Chandler Park Academy)
2013, PG, 6-0, 160 pounds
About halfway through the first half in the Michigan Mustangs' tilt with Florida Elite, Walton shifted into a different gear and the rest is history. He dissected the defense with explosive bursts off the dribble and pinpoint passing. He got to the rim at will and finished, while taking the contact. The future Wolverine is ultra-competitive and appears to have the mental makeup to endure the physicality of the Big Ten.
Brannen Greene (Monroe, Ga./Tift County)
2013, WF, 6-6, 210 pounds
Greene was a one-man wrecking crew against Gateway Basketball in the adidas Super 64. The rangy 3-man has an assortment of scoring skills and the savvy to boot. He has a deceptive burst to get into the lane and he can either finish through contact or drop off the assist. His jump shot was feathery and effortless, which set up his driving game. Overall, he has all the physical intangibles and offensive arsenal to be a standout at the next level.
Isaac Hamilton (Los Angeles/St. John’s Bosco)
2013, SG, 6-5, 185 pounds
His squad was eliminated but Hamilton left it all out there. His barrage of 3s wasn't enough but it was fun to watch. The natural scorer with a propensity for clicking off jumpers, played his best ball on the final few days of July. If he can eliminate the forced opportunities, he has all the tools to be a No. 1 scorer for someone.
Zak Irvin (Fishers, Ind./Hamilton SE)
2013, SF, 6-6, 185 pounds
The Michigan commitment’s game is in great shape. Physically he’s a good athlete with room to grow into a body that’s going to fill out. His game consists of quick pull-ups, multiple rebounding attempts and intensity. The guy carries himself with a mixture of confidence and humility.
Calvin Hermanson (Lake Oswego, Ore./Lake Oswego)
2013, SF, 6-5, 185 pounds
When the Clutch Players took the floor against Mass Rivals, it looked like a No. 1 seed versus a No. 16 seed until Hermanson’s game kicked in. A skilled wing forward with a jump shot, he can release from anywhere. Hermanson is at worst an elite mid-major recruit. The lefty put in work and nearly sprung a summer stunner. He claims offers from St. Mary’s, Utah, Oregon State, Drake and UCSB with Stanford, Nevada and Washington showing interest.
Henry Ellenson (Rice Lake, Wis./Rice Lake)
2015, C, 6-9, 215 pounds
On Saturday, we had him listed in the database as a power forward, but he will be moved to center. He’s 6-foot-8, 250 pounds of immovable force in the paint and he took his team to the Final Four in his division. Rugged style, very good touch for a big and a measure of skill. Big-time recruit.
Brodricks Jones (Playa del Ray, Calif./View Park)
2015, PF, 6-8, 180 pounds
The operative word here is upside. Jones went up against a team of quick guards and wings and held the fort inside as long as he could. Multiple quick jumps at the rim and a developing post game for a young big lead us to believe he's one of the top post players on the West Coast, no matter the class.
Reid Travis (Minneapolis, Minn./DeLaSalle)
2014, PF, 6-6, 190 pounds
From a size standpoint, he’s trapped in position limbo but that won’t define him. This guy goes to work in the lane and it’s where he’s most comfortable. No matter what position you’d put him at (he can’t guard 3s) he’s going to have an effect on the game. He's very rugged and his motor is a major attribute.
