Saturday was an exciting day at the Summer Jam in Mequon, Wisc., and 2014 elite prospect Kevon Looney was a main source of that excitement.
Looney is an elite prospect with enormous potential.
In front of a raucous hometown crowd, Looney led the Milwaukee Rebels to an overtime win against a feisty Team Loaded squad.
Doing damage everywhere, Looney was especially a terror on the offensive glass. Unofficially I had him with at least 20 rebounds. Officially Looney was the game high scorer with 30 points.
One of the top prospects in the 2014 class, Looney has a Kevin Durant type build and a developing skill set that makes a young Durant come to mind.
The heart and soul for Team Loaded was 2013 reclassified guard Frank Mason. Physical and highly competitive, Mason willed Team Loaded back from a significant deficit to force overtime before falling to the Rebels.
In one of the most entertaining games of the summer, The Utah Reign took down the Wisconsin Swing behind the three headed monster of 2014 guard T.J. Haws, 2013 post player Eric Mika and Nick Emery, all of which are BYU commitments.
Haws is a dynamic playmaker with a top of the line feel for the game. He is slippery with the dribble, delivers the difficult pass and has an accurate quick shooting trigger.
Feeding off his playmaking ability were Mika and Emery. Mika delivered on most of his touches and was a physical force inside, outplaying Indiana commitment Chase Fischer.
Emerycontibuted to the win with his long range shooting ability and heady defensive play.
Leading the way for the Swing was Wisconsin commitment Bronson Koenig. Playing a similar role as Haws for his team, Koenig made tough shots and was the main facilitator for the Swing.
Akoy Agau (2013 power forward, Team Nebraska Express)
A skilled big man, Agau has a lot of potential. He passes well and can control space among other positive qualities. The next step is for him to develop more of a killer instinct as a scorer.
On the recruiting front, Agua is favoring Georgetown because of the fit between his skill set and the Hoyas' system. He also is considering offers from West Virginia, Nebraska and Connecticut.
Matt Thomas (2013 combo guard, Wisconsin Playmakers)
Thomas has established himself as one of the best shooters in the 2013 class, if not the best. He doesn't have blow by speed, but he does handle the ball well and can get his team into the offense if he isn't coming off screens shooting.
Payton Banks (2013 small forward, LAX Hoops)
A physical wing, Banks is a tough rebounder and scorer. He has the ability to post and score facing the basket.
Banks, 6-6, 220-pounds, is no longer considering Arizona or USC but is considering offers from Washington State, UTEP, Nevada, Oregon State, Auburn and Penn State.
Deonte Burton (2013 small forward, TP Elite)
The offense is raw, but Burton is a game changer on the defensive end. He is the type of physically and mentally tough player who you would expect to thrive at Marquette.
Dondre Alexander (2013 combo guard, Iowa Barnstormers)
Alexander has the strength and quickness to play with any guard in the country. Outside shooting isn't his forte, but Alexander gets to spots on the court and defends and rebounds.
Alexander listed an offer from Bradley and interest from Marquette, Louisville and Northern Colorado.
Tory Miller (2013 power forward, KC Run GMC)
Miller is an emerging target for schools in need of a low post player. Colorado State, Nebraska and Minnesota have offered. Vanderbilt recently called.
Julian Moore (2013 power forward, We R 1)
In the same category as Miller, Moore has offers from Penn State, Temple, Delaware, Bucknell, Boston U, Drexel and James Madison. VCU and Clemson are showing interest.
Rasheed Muhammad (2013 shooting guard, Las Vegas Prospects)
A smooth shooter from the wing, Muhammad recently picked up an offer from San Diego State.
Derrick Jones (2015, 6-foot-6 small forward, We R 1)
A terrific athlete with length, Jones has tremendous potential.
Jaylen Key (2015 small forward, TP Elite)
The son of former Marquette standout Damon Key, Jaylen is a promising young prospect at 6-5 and growing.
