Purdue Elite Camp and Other Recruiting News

There were two big Elite Camps today, Purdue held theirs at North Central H.S. while IPFW had theirs up in Fort Wayne. Both camps brought out lots of great talent from around the state. Here are some of the standouts that I noticed today while watching the PU camp.

Grant Evans: 6'3'' Shooting Guard, Wapahani H.S. (2014)
Grant can flat out shoot the rock. Today, he showed the ability to put the ball on the floor some too with a couple of good drives to the basket. His best asset is still his catch-and-shoot game though. Grant has a very quick release and a sweet lefty stroke. Right now his overall game reminds me a little of former Marion wing, and current player at NC State, Scott Wood. Both are good athletes who could really shoot the ball.

Jalen Coleman: 6'2'' Point Guard, Cathedral H.S. (2015)
It is amazing that a player who has yet to play a high school game can stand out while playing against some of the best players in Indiana. However, that is exactly what Jalen did. He showcased good athleticism while running the floor, very quick with the ball in his hands. I like his pull up jumper when in transition, but outside shooting is an area of his game that he will need to work on. Jalen should make an impact at the varsity level right away this winter.

Sean Sellers: 6'5'' Shooting Guard, Greensburg H.S. (2014)
Continues to impress me each time I watch him play. Along with Grant Evans, Sean is in the running for the best shooter in the Class of 2014. He also has a nice mid-range game. He is a good rebounder on both ends of the court, could become even better when he adds some muscle.

Other guys who played well...

Kendall Rollins: 6'5'' Shooting Guard, Pike H.S. (2014)
Tayler Persons: 6'0'' Point Guard, Kokomo H.S. (2014)
Trevon Bluiett: 6'5'' Shooting Guard, Park Tudor H.S. (2014)
Jaquan Lyle: 6'4'' Shooting Guard, Evansville Bosse H.S. (2014)

There was some news from the IPFW Elite Camp today as well...

Alex Etherington, a 6'6'' wing from Hamilton Heights (2013), picked up his first offer today from the Mastodons. The 'Dons also offered 2013 Forward, Richard Freeman of Lawrence Central. It was his first offer as well.

While on his visit to Valparaiso today, 6'5'' Small Forward Clay Yeo (2013) picked up an offer and promptly committed to play there.
