CLASS OF 2013 (SENIORS)

Quite a few notable 2013 players had very strong performances in the event. They were led

by the

Co-Most Outstanding Upperclassmen Dezmond James (6’4” SG Ponderosa HS

2013 –

Committed to Air Force) and Leonard Hurst (6’3” SG Aurora Central HS 2013).

James

has really brought his game to the next level over the past six months. He attacks

the rim with a vengeance and finishes as well as anyone in the state. He is also a talented

defender and great rebounder for his position. If he continues to develop at the same rate,

he will be a very good player for Air Force.

Hurst was tremendous in the camp as well. He

does a great job attacking the rim from the perimeter and picks his scoring spots very well.

He is also a solid shooter and outstanding defender and rebounder for his position. He

should have a big senior season and garner some strong RMAC interest.

Jonathan Cosmann

(6’1” SG Legend HS 2013) also made a very strong case to be

named Most Outstanding Upperclassmen. He is a tremendous shooter and can also score

well with strong moves to the rim. He also has a great motor and defends very well. He is

certainly one of the most underrated 2013 players in the state and should have a big senior

season.

Tory Belveal (6’3” SG Air Academy HS 2013) was solid in the event as well. He is

a lights out shooter who defends well and is able to play either guard spot well. Schools in

need of a shooter with good size should be all over him this winter.

Two seniors from the Western Slope also made the All Event Team.

Spencer Fair (6’6” SF

Fruita-Monument HS 2013) is a great looking prospect with tons of upside. He plays hard

and can score well around the rim and shoots the ball well from beyond the stripe. He’s a

great looking RMAC prospect.

Collin Porterfield (6’4” SF Glenwood Springs HS 2013)

was a wonderful surprise at the event and certainly will boost his recruiting stock with his

outstanding performance. He is a very active and versatile mid sized player who plays hard

on both ends of the floor. He scores well attacking the rim and also is a solid shooter. His

leadership abilities were also impressive.

A few seniors had great performances in the event and almost certainly would have made

the All Event Team if they were able to attend the entire camp. This group was led by

Carlton Hurst

(6’3” SG Aurora Central HS 2013 – Committed to Colorado State). He is

quite simply the best 2013 player in the state and seems poised to have a monster senior

season fresh off his commitment to in-state Colorado State University.

Hurst is a freak

athlete and extremely explosive scorer. He can virtually get a bucket anytime he wants and

scores well from all three levels. He’s also an outstanding defender and rebounder.

Colorado State fans should be thrilled that Larry Eustascy was able to keep

Hurst in the

state. In addition,

Daniel Meyer (6’9” P Central Catholic, MT HS 2013) looked great in the

event. He is still growing and has only begun to reach his potential as a prospect. He is

extremely active around the rim on both ends of the floor and runs the floor very well for a

player his size. His upside and high academics should make him one of the most coveted

unsigned 2013 players in the region this winter. Finally,

Collin Sanger (6’6” SF Sterling HS

2013) was tremendous in the event. He plays as hard as anyone in the state and is an

outstanding natural leader. He scores very well around the rim and can defend a variety of

positions. After a strong fall,

Sanger should see a number of solid schools recruit him this

winter.

CLASS OF 2014 (JUNIORS)

The class of 2014 in Colorado is one of the best classes we have seen in a while. Some of

the top tier players in this class were great in the event and there were also a number of

prospects who had breakout performances as well. In total, six 2014 prospects made the

All Event Team.

This group was led by

Broderick Robinson (6’0” PG Grand Junction HS 2014). He was

outstanding all weekend long. He is a strong, athletic guard who loves to push the ball in

transition and can score at the rim very well. He also does a great job of getting his

teammates involved and is an outstanding defender as well. Look for him to have a huge

junior year.

Gunnar Javernick (6’7” P Canon City) was also tremendous in the event. He

has a motor that never stops and scores very well around the rim by using his thick frame

to create space in traffic. He is also quite athletic and can stretch the defense with a solid

jump shot.

Chances Matlock (6’4” SF Falcon HS 2014) has been one of the highest rated

players in his class since he entered high school and proved why in the event. He runs the

floor like a deer and scores very well in the open floor. He is also a versatile defender and

scores very well attacking the rim in the half court.

A pair of Standley Lake big men were great in the event.

Marcus Asmus (6’7” CF Standley

Lake HS 2014) is a versatile forward who has loads of upside. He scores well around the

rim using his great footwork and active motor. He is also a solid shooter who can stretch

the defense out beyond the arch.

Asmus should have a huge junior year and turn into one

a highly coveted target for college coaches.

Dylan Critchfield (6’7” P Standley Lake HS

2014) also made a strong showing in the event. He is a wide bodied post who rebounds

very well on both ends of the floor and finishes well using both hands around the rim.

Aumus

and Critchfield should form one of the best post duos in the state this season.

Last but most certainly not least,

Brandon Pleiman (6’3” SG Valor Christian HS 2014) also

made the All Event Team. He is an explosive scorer and a deceptively good athlete. He

can score well going to the rim and shoots the ball well beyond the stripe. He also plays

hard and should have a breakout season this year.

Two of the premiere 2014 prospects in the country also were expectedly great in the event

and would have certainly made the All Event Team if they were able to participate the

entire weekend.

Dominique Collier (6’2” PG Denver East HS 2014) just makes the game

look easy and looked amazing in the event. He is an incredibly smooth lead guard who is

equally talented at scoring and distributing the ball. He is also a great shooter, defender

and rebounder and has a competitive sprit that is unmatched in Colorado. As one of the

highest ranked 2014 point guards nationally, he is going to make an elite high major coach

a very happy man some day.

Jeremiah Paige (6’3” CG Rangeview HS 2014) is also one of

the most talented guards in the country and certainly underrated at the national level. He is

a smooth wing who is very good with the ball in his hands and can also be a serious

scoring threat playing off the ball. He is very long and versatile and can score the ball in a

variety of ways. He is already on the radar for a number of elite high major schools and his

stock should only continue to improve.

In addition to the players mentioned above, the following 2014 players also made strong

showings in the event:

Marnath Reat (6’2” SG Alameda HS 2014), Michael Willis (6’6” SF

Brighton HS 2014),

Will Duggan (5’10” PG Fort Collins HS 2014), A.J. Bohuslavsky

(5’11” CG Liberty HS 2014),

Joel Davies (6’2” SG Cherry Creek HS 2014), Devon

Winstanley

(5’11” CG Fruita-Monument HS 2014), Taft Cleverly (6’0” SG Moffat County

HS 2014) and

Alex Therrien (6’3” SF Frederick HS 2014), amongst others.

CLASS OF 2015 (SOPHOMORES)

Two tremendous 2015 point guards made the All Event Team.

Mitch Lombard (6’0” PG Rock

Canyon HS 2015) was amazing in the event and was named the

Most Outstanding

Underclassmen

. He has improved by leaps and bounds over the past year and has turned

himself into one of the premiere players in his class. He is the consummate floor general and

does a tremendous job of picking his scoring spots well and knowing when to get his

teammates involved. He is a great passer and ball handler and has an outstanding feel for the

game and how to control tempo. Added strength will really help him turn into a coveted

college prospect.

Brian Carey (5’8” PG Denver East HS 2015) was also tremendous in the

event and would have challenged to be named Co-Most Outstanding Underclassmen if he

were able to make the entire camp.

Carey is a dymanic point guard who can score well at the

rim and shoots the ball well with outstanding range. He loves to push the ball in transition and

is a fierce competitor. He should have a big sophomore season for the best high school team

in the state.

A few other 2015 prospects would have challenged to make the All Event Team is they were

able to attend the entire weekend.

Troy Green (6’5” SF Montbello HS 2015) is a freak athlete

who punishes the rim with vicious dunks in traffic and in transition. He has improved his

perimeter skills quite a bit over the last six months and continued improvement in that area

will help him become a coveted mid to high major prospect.

Garrett Bye (6’9” P Steamboat

Springs HS 2015) is a great looking prospect with mountains of upside. He is rapidly

developing and has nice wide shoulders that can easily carry additional weight. He also has

good defensive instincts and finishes strong around the rim. As he continues to develop, he

should be a strong mid to upper mid major prospect.

In addition to the players mentioned above, the following 2015 players made strong showings

in the event:

Bryan Staerkel (6’2” SG Regis HS 2015), Vaughn Samson (6’3” SG Regis HS

2015),

Zach Pirog (6’8” P ThunderRidge HS 2015), Jake Holtzman (6’5” SF Chaparral HS

2015),

Luke Schwindaman (6’1” SG Prairie View HS 2015) and Trey Parker (6’2” SG

Pueblo South HS 2015), amongst others.

CLASS OF 2016 (FRESHMEN)

While no freshmen were selected to the All Event Team, a few talented players stood out.

LaDarius Thomas

(6’0” PG Aurora Central HS 2016) was only able to attend one day of the

camp but was phenomenal during that time and would have almost certainly made the All

Event Team if he were able to attend the entire camp. He is a shifty lead guard who can do a

lot of good things with the ball in his hands. He is a talented scorer who can get to the rim with

ease and shoots the ball well. The sky is the limit for him if he continues to develop.

Michael

Ranson

(6’1” CG Pueblo Central HS 2016) also was great in the camp and had a great

chance to be selected to the All Event Team if he were able to attend both days. He is a

strong guard with a great feel for the game. He is a hard-nosed defender who can also score

well on the offensive end from all three levels. Overall,

Ranson is a great looking prospect.

Ryan Rupert

(6’2” SG Cheyenne Mountain HS 2016) also made a nice showing. He scores

well going to the rim and has a good build for a player his age. He also plays hard on both

ends of the floor.
