Monday, April 16, 2012 Shootout Results

I attended the Shootout AAU tourney this weekend and have the results for the HS age groups.  Many scouting videos to come as well.

17U- Class of 2013
The Eric Gordon All-Stars, led by D1 commits Devin Davis (Indiana), Zak Irvin (Michigan), V.J. Beachem (Notre Dame), and Basil Smotherman (Purdue) took home the title in the oldest age division knocking off Kevin Martin's Wolverines in the championship game 78-73.  The EG All-Stars were led by 18 points from Irvin.  The Wolverines were led by 6-10 center Maverick Morgan (Springsboro, OH) with 20 points, and Jaylon Brown (Fishers) with 21 points.

I really enjoyed watching Zavier Turner run point for the EG All-Stars this weekend.  He may only be in the 5-8 range, but he's very strong (similar body type as Nate Robinson), has an excellent handle, good court vision, can hit jumpers, and is quick and athletic.  If he continues to play like he did this weekend, I would expect him to add some more D1 offers.  Another player that impressed was Michigan commit Mark Donnal (Whitehouse, OH) for the Dan Dakich coached Indiana Elite South team.  He looked to be about 6-foot-9 230 pounds and moves well for a big man.  He should be a good addition for Michigan in their 2013 class.

16U- Class of 2014
Fieldhouse Elite took home the title defeating Indiana Elite 65-55.   I was only able to catch Fieldhouse Elite one time this weekend in the semi-final game vs. the Eric Gordon All-Stars.  Aaron Brennan (Guerin Catholic) was impressive in that game leading Fieldhouse to a 56-55 victory while scoring a game high 25 points.  Stay tuned for videos of Brennan, Grant Evans (FE, Wapahani) Sean Sellers (EG, Greensburg), and Bryant McIntosh (EG, Greensburg) from that semi-final game.

15U- Class of 2015
Indiana Elite led by 20 points from point guard Hyron Edwards (East Chicago Central) defeated the Eric Gordon All-Stars 85-65 in the title game.  Eron Gordon had 21 for the EG All-Stars to cap off an impressive weekend from him.  I wasn't able to attend this championship game and unfortunately won't have any video.

I spoke with some parents from Indiana Elite, and they all said Hyron Edwards will be one of the best players in the state in the 2015 class. All reports indicate Eron Gordon dominated this weekend playing a year up in the IndyBall tourney.  Look for him to be the top player in the state for the class of 2016.  Update: It is being reported that Indiana is the first team to offer Eron Gordon a scholarship after his outstanding play this weekend.
