The live evaluation period is back in full swing with major tournaments in Orlando, Las Vegas, St. Louis and more. Michigan commitments and recruiting targets continued their strong play this July in front of college coaches from across the country.
Nick Stauskas was impressive in the first half of the live evaluation period and might have been even more impressive through early play in Vegas. Stauskas is averaging 23 points per game through his first five games while knocking down over half of his threes. His Grassroots Canada squad will resume play in the quarterfinals this afternoon. Here are some scouting reports from national and regional scouts in attendance:
Nik Stauskas, Grassroots Canada: The Michigan commitment had one of the more impressive scoring efforts of the day against the Danny Granger Hurricanes, filling up the shot chart with makes from all over the floor. The 6-6, 195-pound senior has a deceptive burst with the ball in his hands and is a tough matchup on the perimeter with his size and strength.

Zak Irvin and VJ Beachem both played instrumental roles in the Eric Gordon All-Stars’ championship run at the Best of the Midwest event last week. The performances bookended an impressive first July evaluation for both prospects that earned the pair additional offers, Tennessee for Irvin and Notre Dame for Beachem. Irvin holds a Michigan offer, and Beachem could very well add one down the road, but both prospects appear to be nearing college decisions. Here’s footage of Irvin, with scouting reports and Beachem video after the jump:

It’s been a huge July for Michigan commitment Glenn Robinson III and his AAU teammate Mitch McGary.
