GARDEN GROVE, Calif.- Class of 2015 No. 1-ranked prospect Malik Newman struggled with his jumper Saturday night but came up big with the winning shot to beat the Europe squad at adidas Nations.
Newman is a big shot maker in the 2015 class.
Prior to tonight's game, Newman had put up 15 points in each of the USA 2015 Red games. Tonight, however, he was only 1-9 from the field before sinking a three-pointer while drawing a foul off an inbounds play with 21 seconds left. His made free throw put the USA up by two, and they eventually won 60-56 over Europe.
Amongst a throng of top American talent, Australian forward Jonah Bolden has been one of the top standouts at adidas Nations.
A 6-8 combo forward with athleticism, length and a great feel for the game, Bolden will attend Henderson (Nev.) Finday Prep next year. As of now, his plan is to reclassify up from the 2015 class into the 2014 class.
Bolden will be highly, highly recruited once he begins playing in the United States. Schools are already pursuing Bolden, but he has been uninvolved in his recruitment to this point with his father handling all the dialogue with coaches.
Bolden told 247Sports that the only school that he was aware of recruiting him is Arizona.
After suffering a mild hyper extended knee in Las Vegas, Mudiay isn't playing at the adidas Nations. The elite guard did talk to 247Sports and said that the only visit he has scheduled so far is a trip to Kentucky. A visit to Kansas is a possibility along with SMU and Baylor.
The 2015 post player is up to 6-10 and 230-pounds and his game is progressing.
He noted that Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina are SEC schools vigorously recruiting him.
He also mentioned offers outside of the SEC from Kansas, Louisville and Texas.
After Las Vegas, the 2015 big man visited Stanford prior to coming to Los Angeles for this event. He told 247Sports that the visit went well and he was impressed by the school.
Connecticut, Maryland and Davidson are some of his most recent offers.
The 2016 shooting guard has been one of the top players at the camp. Jackson is an elite prospect with athleticism and a strong all around game.
One of the top power forwards in the 2015 class, Bragg has the potential to be a dangerous three-point shooter as an athletic stretch four.
Always capable of creating his own shot, Dorsey did a nice job distributing the ball during his Saturday morning game.
One of the top big men in the country, Okafor has simply been too strong for the foreign competition.
On a torrid pace shooting the ball during his three games at this event, Bluiett is proving himself as one of the top shooters in the 2014 class.
Amongst all his other outstanding attributes as a player, Johnson impressed with his passing ability on Saturday.
