adidas Invitational: Recap
Inside Prep Sports/By TJ Kelley
Year after year the adidas Invitational is amongst the top events in the country and with hundreds of college coaches in attendance many players produced. As a result their recruitment picked up heavily in the form of offers or high interest.
6'8" 2013 small forward Paris Bass (Michigan Warriors-Mac 17u) the recent Birmingham Seaholm graduate looks to be a late qualifier and may dismiss prep school as his offer list grew every time he stepped on the court this past week. Louisiana Tech was the latest school to offer and with a solid showing in Milwaukee his phone will be that much busier.
6'6" 2014 center Jaleel Hogan (HoopGrind 17u) was a monster in the paint and punished the rim as all six of his field goals were dunks of the tow-handed variety. He has the girth and physical play that help many mid-major programs. Coaches know what they're going to get with Hogan as there isn't anything pretty about his game. He's the latest MAC-East recruit.
6'5" 2015 wing Daniel Jeffries (Dorian's Pride 16u) doesn't have the prettiest shot but it was effective as were his slashing abilities and will to attack the basket. He's one of many big shooting guards/wings in Michigan's 2015 class. Consistency is key for his recruiting as is developing his shot which has improved since the beginning of the high school season. - pictured
New Heights 16u's 6'5" 2015 shooting guard Matt Ryan didn't take long to show where he can help a team as he dropped bombs from 25' in the first game of pool play. His efforts were recognized early and by Monday he had offers from Boston College, Davidson, Fordham, Arizona State, Boston U., Harvard, Providence, and Creighton.
Michigan Mustangs-Brown 16u 6'6" 2016 wing Miles Bridges lived up to his billing and is one of the anchors of what is building up to a fantastic 2016 class in Michigan. The lefty showed his versatility, ahtleticism, skill, and abilities to make the hustle plays. Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois joined what fellow Big Ten schools, Michigan and Michigan State, already knew. He will more than likely start off the National 2016 ranking in the top 25 if he continues his strong play.
