Scouting: Adidas Invitational Pool Play

20101228171011_2010-1228-dm-holidayhoops0064[1]The Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis is one of the premiere AAU events of the July live evaluation period. The event not only features most of the best Adidas-funded AAU clubs in the country, it also features a number of primary Michigan targets.  Several U-M targets got off to a slow start on Wednesday but bounced back to put together huge days on Thursday. UMHoops was on hand for to watch Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin, Demetrius Jackson and others.

Derrick Walton, Michigan Mustangs, 2013 - After struggling in a Wednesday pool game vs. Martin’s Wolverines, Walton was outstanding in a loss to Spiece Indy Heat 16u on Thursday, scoring 35 points and showing off a well-rounded game in the process. Not only did the 5-11 Walton shoot the ball well, but he also did a great job of attacking the basket off the bounce to score as well as draw contact. The 2013 Michigan target displayed a reliable free throw stroke and was able to take advantage of easy scoring opportunities at the line. When attacking off the dribble, Walton also did a nice job of seeing openings and finding teammates for baskets. Walton does not have a Michigan State offer at this point, but most expect that one will be coming, perhaps in August.
