2010-11 Season Highlights: Stu Douglass

Here’s another great highlight video from Josh Houchin. We’ll have one more player highlight (Evan Smotrycz) and then a wrap-up video recapping the entire season. All of the highlight videos will be archived on this page and you can also read Douglass’s report card here.

Recap: 2011 Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic

As we conclude our coverage from the 2011 Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic, it seemed like a good idea to recap everything that was posted over the last several days. There were plenty of videos and scouting reports and things easily get lost in the shuffle. The tournament field was heavy on 2013 prospects, many of whom should expect a Michigan offer on June 15th.

Video: Drake Harris at Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic

Just a freshman at Grand Rapids Christian, Drake Harris is already drawing attention from high-major programs across the country. A smooth and explosive athlete, the 6-foot-3 Harris is physically on another level than most freshman. His basketball skills aren’t far behind as he shows the ability to score the ball efficiently inside and out. Indiana has already extended a scholarship offer and both in-state schools are heavily recruiting him. Harris is planning another visit at Ann Arbor this spring but rattled off Michigan State, Texas, UCLA, Purdue and Indiana, when asked for his top five schools. Here’s footage of Harris against the REACH Legends at the Spiece Run ‘n Slam.

Video: V.J. Beachem at Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic

We’ve already posted video of Zak Irvin, V.J. Beachem’s AAU teammate, but Beachem is another long and talented wing guard in the class of 2013 from the state of Indiana. He currently lists Indiana, Purdue (offer), Michigan State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Butler and should be poised for a strong summer. Here are some clips from Beachem versus St. Louis Team Swish and the Illinois Wolves at the Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic.

Demetrius Jackson was one of the most impressive guards at Spiece, and buzz around him is growing. College coaches aren’t allowed on the road to evaluate prospects but there’s no question that they have their ears to the ground, listening to scouts across the country.

One midwestern scout raved about the 2013 guard’s game, claiming that he had the potential to be a star at the next level and was the high major guard in Indiana that nobody is talking about. Michigan and Xavier prioritized Jackson early, and will almost assuredly extend a scholarship on June 15th, but now others are taking serious notice. Illinois and Notre Dame remain involved while Michigan State, Purdue and Indiana are also entering the picture.

The IndyStar profiled Jackson’s recruitment and his AAU coach explains that Michigan has prioritized the explosive guard:

“Michigan has said he’s their No. 1 recruit in that class,” Creech said. “He really tore it up at the Run ‘n’ Slam (in Fort Wayne last weekend) and a lot of coaches found out.”

If you missed it, we posted video of Jackson at the Spiece Run ‘n Slam on Monday.
