Class 2014: All American Game Recap

Parker Cartwright Was The Top Perfomer In Class of 2014!

The Class 2014 All American Game had some of the top talent in the camp. A few of the players appeared earlier in our reports while others made their name in this event.

Top Performers

Parker Cartwright 5’7 Guard (Van Nuys, CA)- Cartwright showed why he was the top performer in this age group. The lanky guard continued his assault on the camp by driving and scoring at will on the defense. He displayed the total package and has the apparent size to be a force in the coming years. He was certainly our choice as the top player in the Class of 2014.

Alonzo Trier 5’5 Guard (Federal Way, WA)- Trier has some explosive offensive skills that standout whenever he’s on the floor. In the All American Game he made some crisp moves that caught the attention of spectators while showing his worth as a top ranked guard. Alonzo loves the stage and wants the rock in hands at all times.

Jerron Love 5’4 Guard (New York, NY)- Love made his presence felt in the game with some swift drives, on point passes and a deep pull up jumper. Yeah he gets a lot of attention from his play by hey that’s the New York way. He represented well down in Virginia.

James Blackmon 5’9 Guard (Fort Wayne, IN)- The compact scoring machine does whatever he wants in terms of putting the ball in the hole. He gets to the bucket when he wants and can hit the very deep trey. Expect to see him make the transition to point guard in the coming years.

Will Brewster 5’6 Guard (Birmingham, AL)- Brewster showed more of his perimeter skills in this one. He really has a nice stroke from the outside and his unselfish passing makes things easier for his teammates.

Marsalis Hamilton 5’9 Forward (Team Florida)- They power forward has some quick moves especially on the blocks and in transition. They say he’s only 5’9 but I think you could at 2 inches to that. I like his soft hands and footwork on this level.

Tarin Smith 5’1 Guard (Ocean, NJ)- Smith is an elite play maker that handles the pill and gets a kick out getting his teammates involved. He’s strong with either hand but prefers to create opportunities with his left. Tarin is a true floor leader

Rashad Vaughn 5’10 Guard (Plymouth, MN)- The State of Minnesota has a good one in Vaughn. The big guard looks very poised and big time when he pulls up for his jumper. He handles the rock with confidence and his size makes him an instant impact on this level
