Video: Derrick Walton at King James Classic

Derrick Walton played very well for the Michigan Mustang 16u squad at King James, leading his team to a 2-0 superpool performance and a nice win over the NY Gauchos. We scouted Walton here but here is footage of Walton from the first two games of the King James Classic. Walton reported interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Connecticut, Purdue and Notre Dame and mentioned that he feels a Michigan offer is coming soon.

Video: Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards at King James Classic

This footage isn’t the greatest because of the level of competition, a running clock and ample rest for the Team Detroit starters, but it’s still enough to get a first look at Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards. For more footage of Monte Morris, make sure to check out the video we posted last week.

Scouting: 2011 King James Classic

2013 point guard Derrick Walton

I was only able to stay at the King James Classic through pool play, and was victim to a couple of no-shows, so I spent the majority of my time focusing on a couple 2013 prospects from the state of Michigan. Full scouting reports of that group, including Derrick Walton, Steve Haney Jr., Monte Morris, Denzel Watts and Leo Edwards, after the jump. We will also have some videos posted later today.

Video: Nik Stauskas Easter Workouts

2012 Michigan commitment Nik Stauskas was back at home over the holidays and put together a couple videos of him working out. One has been floating around all weekend, with Nik going through an array of ball handling and shooting drills (after the jump), but the latest video might be even more impressive. Nik focuses entirely on shooting the second video and makes 95 threes in 5 minutes and 123 of 141 threes in 6 and a half minutes.

The original workout video is after the jump. [click to continue…]

Darius Morris and the NBA Draft

Yesterday’s development in the Darius Morris NBA draft saga wasn’t actually much of a surprise. It was more or less just following the plan that Morris’s brother outlined a month ago in the Detroit Free Press. Morris had every intention of entering his name in the draft and the decision to officially file his paperwork was just the next step in the process.

At this point it’s probably fair to say that Morris is genuinely conflicted. By not hiring an agent at this point, Morris will be able to garner as much feedback as possible and leave his options open until the May 8th withdrawal date.

Video: U-M Commits Glenn Robinson III and Trey Burke

We posted a Glenn Robinson III scouting video from the Pitt Jam Fest earlier this week but here’s a short highlight reel from Ty Kish of City League Hoops. The video includes footage of Robinson from early spring events he shows off his elevation and scoring ability around the basket.

After the jump we also have the second episode of Trey Burke’s Journey to the Leauge, a feature produced by Burke’s trainer detailing his early morning workouts.
