AAU Super Showcase Rundown - 23rd and 24th

Posted on 26. Jul, 2010 by Alex Schwartz in High School, Tournaments

ORLANDO, Fla. – The AAU Super Showcase kicked off on Thursday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports with U15 play. Flagrant Fouls arrived on Friday in time to see the conclusion of the U15 age group and the start of U16 play. On Saturday the U16 playoffs rolled along and the U17 level finally got underway and more Division I coaches made their way out to Orlando for the action. With so many coaches on hand, there was ample opportunity for players to showcase their skills and earn scholarship offers. Numerous players turned in big-time performances on Friday and Saturday in front of the coaches.


Top Performers

DaJuan Coleman, 2012, C, 6’9, Jamesville-DeWitt (NY), Albany City Rocks-

In a triple overtime victory over Team United, Coleman was the best player on the floor for much of the game. One of the best rising juniors in the country, Coleman finished tied for the game high in scoring with 28 points. He took nearly 20 free throws, though he did not shoot a god percentage at the stripe. Coleman is a massive post player who is nearly impossible to guard and gave an older, taller, high-major recruit some real fits. Coleman fell off a bit as the game wore on, but he was outstanding nonetheless.

Demetrius Dyson, 2013, SG, 6’5, TBD, Memphis YOMCA 15s-

Dyson, who was at Brighton (TN) last year and will be transferring, was the main reason why his team was not blown out in a U15 Gold semifinal loss to the New York Gauchos. Dyson had 22 points, including 15 in the second half and scored from all over the floor. Possessing a lethal offensive arsenal, especially considering his class, Dyson is difficult to contain. He is productive from midrange and can also get to the hoop off the bounce.

Tyler Harris, 2011, SF, 6’8, Half Hollow Hills West (NY), Albany City Rocks-

When Coleman cooled off, Tyler Harris got hot for the City Rocks as the game wore on. He too finished with 28 points and was fantastic down the stretch. Harris has improved his game a great deal since last summer and while he is still a work in progress, Harris has great upside. A long combo forward who can shoot the ball, Harris can score around the basket and is a good enough athlete.

Dakari Johnson, 2014, C, 6’8, TBD, New York Gauchos 15s-

Johnson has not even played a high school game, but he is already a dominant force. In a U15 Gold semifinal win over Memphis YOMCA, Johnson tied for the team high with 13 points. He was then the most dominant player on the floor in the championship game, a loss to the CP3 All-Stars in which Johnson went off for a game high 25 points. Johnson has great size, a big frame, and tremendous post moves for someone his age. Johnson’s ceiling is extremely high and has a chance to be one of the top players in the nation in the class of 2014.

Matt Jones, 2013, SG, 6’3, DeSoto (TX), Texas Titans 15s-

Julius Randle gets all the publicity for the team, but Jones is also a surefire high-major prospect. In a semifinal loss to the CP3 All-Stars in what was a fantastic game, Jones had a game high 28 points, knocking down six threes, five of which were in the first half, including three in the first quarter. Jones is a knockdown shooter, but he is also a solid athlete who can get to the cup if need be. Jones will likely end up as one of the elite guards in his class on a national level.

Codi Miller-McIntrye, 2012, PG, 6’2, First Assembly Christian (NC), Team United 16s-

A little-known Tar Heel State player with no scholarship offers, Miller-McIntyre was absolutely outstanding in his team’s loss to the loaded BABC squad. Miller-McIntyre hit three threes in the first half, exploding for 20 points before the break. He finished with 26 after a quiet second half scoring-wise, but Miller-McIntyre also did a good job of distributing the basketball to teammates. A consummate point guard who can do it all, Miller-McIntyre can score at all three levels—he has a big-time midrange pull-up—and has a great handle to go along with nice floor vision and flashy, yet quality passing ability.

Rodney Purvis, 2013, SG, 6’2, Upper Room Christian Academy (NC), CP3 All-Stars 15s & 17s-

Arguably the best guard in the class of 2013, Purvis was outstanding in leading his team to the U15 Gold championship. Purvis had a team high 23 points in the semifinal win over the Texas Titans, going 11/16 at the line, including 8/10 in the fourth quarter as CP3 mounted a major comeback. Purvis is athletic, handles the rock, passes well, shoots it from deep, attacks the basket, and plays hard. There is not much on the court that Purvis cannot do.

Julius Randle, 2013, PF, 6’8, Prestonwood Christian (TX), Texas Titans 15s-

Randle is a beast, plain and simple. After starting slowly with just nine points in the first half of the U15 Gold semifinal, Randle dropped 15 in the second half to end up with 24 total. Randle went 6/12 at the line and displayed a refined skill set well beyond his years. At 6’8, Randle can do just about everything with the ball in his hands, though his jumper does need work. Randle is talented enough to grab a defensive rebound, dribble the ball up the court, get to the rack, score, and draw a foul. Randle uses his huge frame well to clear space and bully defenders in the paint. He is in the discussion of best big man in the nation regardless of class and has phenomenal upside.

JaKarr Sampson, 2011, SF, 6’7, St. Vincent-St. Mary (OH), King James Shooting Stars-

Sampson’s team was rocked by the CP3 All-Stars, but he was the best player on the floor and it really was not all that close. A versatile player who can play the one through the four, Sampson played a lot of point guard for King James, skillfully bringing the ball up the floor, surveying the floor, and usually attacking the basket off the bounce. With his height and handles, Sampson is tough for anyone to cover. Sampson projects as a three at the next level due to his length and versatility.
