Joe Davis of ScoutsFocus put on a nice event in Minnesota that drew a large number of players from around the Midwest. There was wide range of talent, but there were enough division one prospects in attendance to make it a good day to evaluate. While I was stationed on one court and didn't get a chance to move around and see everyone I intended to, there were still a few players who made an impression on me.
Rashad Vaughn (2014) - It's always a joy to watch Rashad Vaughn. He's a big-time talent and is capable of putting up big scoring numbers, yet he still plays like a good teammate and is unselfish with the ball. If he can continue to improve the consistency of his pull-up jumper he will be a nightmare to defend.
Bronson Koenig (2013) - In the game I saw Koenig play he stood head and shoulders above the competition. His jumper looked as smooth as ever and he hit both off the catch and off the dribble. He also finished above the rim when he got the opportunity and while he probably could have jacked up a lot more shots if he wanted to, he played unselfishly and made some nice passes to set up teammates as well.
Darrion Strong (2013) - Strong had a very impressive day and scored virtually at will. He is fast with the ball and pushes it up and down the court whenever he gets the chance resulting in a lot of transition points. He's aggressive taking the ball to the rim and does a good job of finishing, but it was from behind the three point line where Strong did most of his damage. He was constantly knocking down three pointers off the dribble whether there was a defender on him or not. By the end of the event I started to get the feeling that every shot he took was going to go in.
Najeal McMillian (2012) - McMillian stood out right away due to his exceptional athleticism. He finished well above the rim in traffic for some of the best highlight plays of the day. Later on, the 6-foot-5 small forward started to show some range on his jumper as well. He started out a little cold, but as the day went on his shots started falling more and more. Right now he looks like a very good mid-major prospect with upside, but if he's able to improve the consistency of his jumper and tighten up his handle a little more so he can consistently create from the perimeter high majors will be all over him.
