Ryan Arcidiacono
The top underclassmen in Philadelphia got together for the annual Rasual Butler All-City Classic Game on Thursday night.  The freshmen and sophomore classes are loaded and provided some good action.  The juniors put together and up and down high flying game.  Recruit Recon was on hand to take in the action.  Here is a look at some of the outstanding players.  


FR - White 76, Black 59
SO - White 77, Black 71
JR - Black 96, White 95

Freshman Game

Ryan Arcidiacono (2012, 6-2 SG) - White Team
Ryan continued to prove that he's one of the best young players in the area.  The smooth shooting wing buried three pointer, after three pointer, after three pointer.  He attacked off the dribble too.  On one play, he had a scoop finish with a foul for an old fashioned three point play.  Later on, he drove and converted with his left hand.  Ryan showed his ability to distribute the ball too.  Often on the break, he looked for his teammates and dished off for assists.  Ryan was the MVP for the white team. 

Amile Jefferson (2012, 6-7 SF/PF) - White Team
Amile showed why he is a player with a very bright future.  The lanky wing did a little of everything.  He scored in the post and on an old fashioned three point play.  He blocked a shot and grabbed a few rebounds.  Perhaps most impressive was Amile's unselfish play.  He threw a number of fine passes to his teammates.  For his ability to distribute the ball, he was named most unselfish player for his team.  Amile does need to get stronger, but that's one of the few holes in his game.

Savon Goodman (2012, 6-4 SF)  - Black Team
Savon is another of several talented players in this class.  He ran the floor well and scored or dished off.  He's at his best as a slasher.  Savon drove left and finished back to the right on one play.  He scored on a dunk, hit a pair of free throws and buried a deep jumper too.  For his efforts, Savon was named MVP for his team.

Richard Hoskins (2012, 5-11 PG)  - Black Team
Richard is a quick guard with the ability to change directions.  He ran the floor and converted a few times in transition.  He scored on a putback and had a good pass too.

Kyree Wooten (2012, 6-3 SG/SF)  - Black Team
This wing was quite impressive.  Kyree is a very athletic player.  The lefty scored in several ways.  He stepped outside and nailed a three pointer.  He ran the floor and finished in transition and dished off an assist too.

Maurice Watson (2012, 5-8 PG) - Black Team
This ankle breaking young guard was solid.  Maurice has a deadly crossover move that he used several times.  He attacked off the dribble in half court sets and on the break.  He dished off a couple assists too.  The lead guard banked home a jumper as well.

Sophomore Game

Jaylen Bond (2011, 6-7 SF/PF) - White Team
Jaylen got up and down the floor.  The big wing made some of his plays on the break.  He had several impressive athletic dunks.  He also dished off an assist on the break too.

John Johnson (2011, 6-1 PG/SG) - Black Team
John is an outstanding player in transition.  Of course that fits in perfectly in an all star game.  He got out and scored on the break time and time again.  He did a terrific job of finishing.  John was rather quiet in other areas of the game, but still took home the MVP for his team.

Keith Coleman (2011, 6-8 PF/C) - White Team
Keith really stands out because of his impressive size.  He performed well in this game with several very athletic dunks.  He grabbed some rebounds too.  Keith has the potential to be a dominant player down the road.

Ameen Tanksley (2011, 6-4 SF) - Black Team
Ameen made most of his plays around the rim.  He ran the floor and scored on the break.  He had a reverse on another play.  He also putback his own miss.

Joey Gripper (2011, 5-11 PG) - White Team
Joey did a fine job of running the team.  He dished out a number of assists, including a fancy pass between his legs after a steal.  He drew a couple fouls when attacking off the bounce too.  Joey even knocked down a three pointer too in this solid game.

Maurice Nelson (2011, 5-9 PG) - Black Team
Maurice had a decent outing.  He scored in transition and dished out a pass on the break too.  He hit a runner and made another good pass later on.  He was quiet from the perimeter.

Aquil Younger (2011, 6-1 PG) - White Team
Aquil was at his best going to the hoop.  He had several nice drives and finishes.  He ran the floor and scored with a foul on one occasion.  Aquil was award the defensive player of the game award too for his fine play at the other end of the floor.  

Junior Game

Jamir Hanner (2010, 6-7 SF/PF) - Black Team
This athletic forward really excels in a transition game.  He did just that in this one on his way to winning the MVP award.  Jamir wowed the crowd early with a pair of athletic dunks.  He threw home several of them after offensive rebounds.  On another dunk, he showed his ability to handle the ball too as he went coast to coast before the throw down.  Jamir nailed a pull up three pointer on the offensive end as well.  Defensively, he blocked a pair of shots and picked up a steal.  He rebounded the ball well too.

Tyree Johnson (2010, 5-9 PG) - Black Team
Tyree started off on fire.  He opened with a fine assist.  He then got his pull up game going.  He hit a pair of pull up jumpers, including a three pointer.  Tyree nailed another three pointer as well.  He ran the floor and made a few plays in transition too.

Tyrone Garland (2010, 6-1 PG/SG) - Black Team
Tyrone started slowly but picked it up later on.  He made a few plays, including a nice drive and finish and fine pass.  He ran the floor and scored in transition.  Tyrone also knocked down a pull up three pointer.

Cameron Ayers (2010, 6-4 SG) - White Team
Cameron showed his fine shooting ability with a pair of pull up three pointers.  Combined with his size and ability to handle the ball, that makes him a nice prospect.

Daniel Stewart (2010, 6-6 SF/PF) - White Team
Daniel really stood out in this up and down game because of his athletic ability.  He threw down high flying dunk after dunk.  Obviously he ran the floor well.  He didn't do much other than score on the break, but he really didn't have too either.

CJ Aiken (2010, 6-9 PF/C) - Black Team
CJ didn't do a lot, but showed his combination of inside and outside ability.  He hit a deep jumper on a shot that looked very smooth.  He had an athletic dunk too and make a couple other plays in transition.  He also pulled down some rebounds.

Shaq Duncan (2010, 6-8 PF) - Black Team
Shaq had several dunks in this up and down the floor game.  He ran the floor well and even dished off a pass for an assist in transition.
