April is no longer a live period, but that still hasn't slown down the AAU tournaments.  The third annual Coaches vs. Cancer Quaker City Shootout began on Friday evening at Temple University.  Recruit Recon was on hand to take in the action.  Here is a look at some of the top players from the opening night.

Team Delaware

Tomir Gibbs (2012, 6-0 PG/SG)
Tomir is a very talented freshman.  The lefty can attack off the bounce and is a good change of direction ball handler.  He scored on an impressive runner after grabbing a rebound at the other end.  Tomir proved to be a good passer too as he found his teammates for a couple assists.  He hit a three pointer from the outside, although he did airball another one from deep.  Tomir has a bright future ahead of him.

Andre Gibbs (2012, 6-0 PG/SG)
Andre is another impressive lefty.  He proved to be a good shooter.  He opened with a pair of pull up jumpers.  Later on, he hit a three pointer.  He can attack off the dribble some too.  He had a nice scoop finish on one play.  Andre is a good looking youngster.

Jordan Purnell (2012, 6-6 SF)
This young wing player had a nice game.  Jordan can attack off the dribble and get into the lane.  He drew a foul on one play.  He also showed the ability to shoot from the perimeter late in the contest.  He knocked down a deep jumper and followed that up with a three pointer.  His shot isn't the most fluid, but it was effective.  Jordan has good size for a wing, but does need to get stronger.

Baltimore Assault

Brandon Gibson (2009, 6-6 SF/PF)
Brandon is a powerful forward who controlled the paint all game long.  He finished well with contact throughout the contest.  He converted two old fashioned three point plays and missed the free throw on another opportunity.  From the outside, Brandon showed the ability to attack off the dribble and shoot too.  He hit a runner in the lane and knocked down a face up jumper.  He played mainly on the inside though and had a strong game on the glass.

Lamont Huggins (2011, 6-7 PF)
This big man started strong in this game.  Lamont opened with a bank shot after a feed.  Following that, he made a nice up and under move to bank another shot.  He was quiet offensively throughout the rest of the game though.  On the defensive end, he showed some decent athletic ability with a blocked shot.  He looks to be a nice young player.

Shore Shots

John Golden (2010, 6-6 SF)
This wing was quite impressive.  John is a good leaper and threw down several dunks while going to the hoop.  He also had an athletic follow up dunk too.  He doesn't possess the best first move, but once he turns the corner, he gets to the rim quickly.  John is a long strider and he adjusts well in traffic.  He had a nice drive and bank on one play and a scoop finish on another.  John missed on a pair of three pointers and could benefit his game by hitting those more.  He had a nice outing though.

Sean Grennan (2011, 6-1 PG)
This point guard had a solid game.  Sean moves very well without the ball and scored several easy baskets because of it.  He also really loves to shoot from the outside.  He has a textbook jumper that is very smooth.  Sean was inconsistent from deep in this one though.  He showed that he can shoot off the dribble.  He has some quickness handling the ball, but doesn't utilize it to get to the hoop very often.  Sean threw a couple nice passes and ran the offense pretty well.

Hunting Park 16s

Erik Copes (2011, 6-8 PF/C)
This big man was fantastic.  Erik controlled the paint.  He's very athletic and blocked no fewer than 5 shots.  He has great timing to go with that athletic ability.  Offensively, he finished well around the rim.  He scored after a couple short drives.  Erik's hands are fantastic and he has quick feet.  He has the look of a player who can be absolutely dominant when he really puts it all together.  He grabbed several rebounds to cap a fine performance.

Jerrell Wright (2011, 6-8 PF/C)
Jerrell is another good looking young big man.  The lefty did most of his damage on the glass on both ends of the floor.  Because of his offensive rebounding, Jerrell got to the line quite often.  While he hit a couple free throws, he does need to improve in that area.  Jerrell is athletic and blocked a shot on the defensive end.  He looks like a promising player.

John Johnson (2011, 6-1 PG/SG)
John made a couple plays in transition in this game, but overall really struggled.  He was injured early on and missed most of the first half.  Even when he came back in, John didn't seem himself.  He didn't look to attack much.  He took several threes in the second half, but his shot wasn't falling.  John certainly has better days than this one.


Aaron Walton (2010, 6-3 PG/SG)
Aaron is a quick and strong guard.  He can attack in either direction off the dribble.  He ran the floor and scored a few times in transition.  Aaron had several fine drive and dish plays.  While he got to the hoop, he did struggle finishing in this game.  He hit a jumper, but missed on a couple others.  Aaron rebounds well for his size and did so during this contest.  The talented guard was solid, but not spectacular.
