Video: Steven Haney Jr. and Derrick Walton at Spiece Run ‘n Slam

Steven Haney Jr. had a solid showing at the Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic over the weekend. He scored in 34 points in Friday night action, a game we didn’t film, and was also solid versus Spiece Kessler on Saturday. We combined footage from that game along with the few clips we got from the King James Classic before Haney went down with injury.

Haney lists Michigan, Michigan State, Harvard, Illinois and Nebraska as the primary schools showing interest at this time. Video of Haney’s teammate and point guard, Derrick Walton, after the jump.

Notebook: Spiece Run ‘n Slam Wrap-Up

elite%2B1[1]

Here are a few final notes from the 2011 Spiece Run ‘n Slam Classic. You can keep tabs on all of our content from Spiece on this page, and we’ll also be posting six more scouting videos and recruiting updates over the coming hours and days.

Elite Camp Looms Large

John Beilein has stressed the importance of his Elite Camp since he arrived in Ann Arbor. The camp allows coaches to conduct a tryout of sorts among the best prospects that they can convince to attend. In person coaching and evaluation is invaluable because of the tight NCAA regulations surrounding evaluation during the summer. Michigan’s Elite Camp this year will be held in roughly a month, on June 11th, just four days before Michigan will extend offers to the class of 2013. Early reports suggest that a very strong group of prospects will attend this year’s camp.

Scouting: Michigan Targets at Spiece Run ‘n Slam

XdUpgWMd[1]Numerous Michigan recruiting targets played at the Spiece Fieldhouse on Saturday and we were able to get a long look at quite a few. In this report we take a look at Zak Irvin, VJ Beachem, Demetrius Jackson, Sherron Dorsey-Walker, EC Matthews, Mark Donnal, Jalen James, Derrick Walton, and Steve Haney. Stay tuned over the coming days for extensive video and more notes and quotes.

Demetrius Jackson – 2013 Guard – MBA Select There’s a lot to like about Demetrius Jackson. Jackson is one of the more explosive U-M point guard targets that we’ve seen this spring. He has a great first step and gets into the lane easily where he can finish or, more impressively, dish to the open man. He had tremendous vision and consistently created for others off the bounce. He shot the ball extremely well against the Mac Irvin Fire in bracket play, making four or five triples, and nearly helped his team to the upset win . Jackson has the rep of a streaky shooter, but if he shoots like he did tonight he’s hard to stop.
