Miles Bridges Flying High at Nike Global Challenge

While several of the nation’s best high school players try to make a statement at this week’s Nike Global Challenge, Miles Bridges decided to make an exclamation point during his first game instead. Bridges said Michigan State, Kentucky, and Michigan have recruited him the hardest so far, but Indiana and a recent offer from North Carolina are also being considered. He said that he only recently gave Tar Heels coach Roy Williams his mom’s phone number. (Zag's Blog)

Alkins, Adebayo Shine at Adidas Uprising Showcase at Rucker Park

Under the bright lights of New York’s famous Rucker Park, hometown product Rawle Alkins put on a display for team Black despite finishing on the losing end in a 103-97 loss to team Grey at the adidas Uprising Showcase on Thursday. “It was great playing in front of my fans,” Alkins told SNY. Alkins was accompanied by Edrice Adebayo on team Black. Adebayo electrified the crowd with his vicious put-back dunks. He finished with a team best 27 points and 11 rebounds. (Zag's Blog)

Ahead of anticipated college choice, Harry Giles continues to grow game

Harry Giles still has eight schools on his list (Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, UNC, Ohio State, Syracuse, UNLV and Wake Forest). But both he and his father, Harry Giles Jr., said their top two priorities for picking a college were player development and the chance to win a national championship in Year 1, so the surrounding cast will be a major factor. "When we evaluate programs," Giles Jr. said, "we're going to be asking, who will give [Harry] the best opportunity to win it all?" (Sports Illustrated)

Trevon Duval separating himself

Not only is Trevon Duval the top point guard in the 2017 class, he might just be the best overall prospect in the class. Duval, 6-3, 175-pounds out of Newark (N.J.) St Benedict's Preparatory School, put up 24 points including a game winning lay up in a one point win over Josh Jackson and his 1Nation squad at the UAA Finals. John Calipari, Sean Miller, Roy Williams, Tom Izzo and others saw his performance. (Carolina Blue)

UA Finals: Sacha Killeya-Jones

A 6-foot-10 forward, Killeya-Jones is in the midst of an impressive summer. Although his team -- Team Felton – got beat pretty good by Team Charlotte on Thursday afternoon, he still managed to impress on the offensive end of the floor. (Scout.com)

Edrice Adebayo Looking to Cut List Soon

Edrice Adebayo is looking to cut his list to 10 schools sometime soon. “I’ll probably cut it down after July and I’ll probably make my decision before senior [year] basketball starts,” the 6-foot-10, 243-pound power forward said here at the adidas Uprising All-American Camp. “Probably 10 [schools].” Kentucky head coach John Calipari and assistant Tony Barbee sat courtside Friday morning watching Adebayo against Rawle Alkins.
