On Wednesday, several more high schools held their open gyms in front of college coaches.  Recruit Recon first traveled to the Jersey Shore area in the afternoon to check out Atlantic Christian's open gym.  We followed that up with a trip in the evening to Ridley's open gym.  Big men were the focal points of both sessions.  Here is a look at some of the players we saw.


Cameron Gunter (2010, 6-8 PF/C)
Ridley didn't have another big man to match him, but nevertheless Cameron was very impressive.  The rail thin post player possesses very good hands, quick feet and long arms.  He's comfortable going either direction down low and finishing with both his right and left hands.  Cameron showed some nice second moves after his initial attempt was stopped.  He has good touch on the inside as well.

Cameron keeps himself wide and seals off well in the post too.  He scored on a deep turnaround jumper among his array of baskets.  He has some decent athletic ability too, but prefers to beat his man with his skills and long arms.  Strength is an issue at times for him.  He showed some solid perimeter skills for a big man too.  Cameron can handle the ball in the open court and hit a few deep face up jumpers.  If he gets stronger, his stock can really rise.  Cameron was definitely impressive regardless of that though.

Mat Piotrowski (2010, 7-0 C)
Mat and his brother Luke are both skilled big men who can do a little bit of everything.  On the inside, Mat hit post hooks with each hand among several of his baskets.  He has a good feel around the hoop.  Mat made several nice passes too.  On the outside, he knocked down a deep jumper, but missed a few other perimeter shots.  He showed that he moves pretty well on a nice pick and roll play, even though he missed the left handed dunk.  While he can move pretty well, at times he took a bit long to make a move in the post. 

Mat could certainly benefit by adding some more strength to help him finish inside and pull down more rebounds.  He blocked a shot and can elevate a bit, but he's certainly not a high riser.  Of course at his height, that isn't as important.  Mat showed a fine all around skill set in this one.  A year of prep school should only help too. 

Luke Piotrowski (2011, 6-9 PF)
Luke is two years younger and a couple inches smaller than his brother, but can already do a lot of the same things.  It was interesting watching the two play each since they obviously know one another's games well.  Luke went to his left in the post quite frequently.  Like his brother, he hit a couple left hand hooks.  His most impressive move was a spin left and duck under move back to the right. 

Luke used a nice spin moves down low fairly often.  He had a drive from deep and a few jumpers too.  He did miss from beyond the arc on several attempts though.  Much like his brother, he could benefit by adding weight and could be a little quicker in the post as well too.  This youngster is definitely very skilled though.
