Saturday afternoon was the start of the Reebok Headliner Tryout Camp in Philadelphia.  Some of the top players in the Philadelphia area competed to be invited to Reebok's prestigious All American Camp or their various other camps.  Here is a look at some of Saturday's best players.

Tyree Johnson (2010, 5-8 PG)
Tyree was the strongest performer I saw Saturday afternoon. The super quick guard did everything. He got into the lane with ease and scored going at the rim. Tyree shot the ball very well and he buried a number of three pointers. Several of his jumpers were of the pull up variety. Tyree had several nice passes too. He is a very talented young guard.

Rakeem Brookins (2010, 5-11 PG)
Rakeem played well too on Saturday afternoon. He scored several times in transition. He really had his pull up game going as he buried several from beyond the arc. Rakeem had a nice behind the back pass on the break. He has played well lately.

Jesse Morgan (2009, 6-4 PG)
Jesse put together a solid game. He made several nice passes. He was very active disrupting the passing lanes and came up with several steals because of it. He dunked after one of those steals. Jesse also had a good left handed finish in transition. He struggled from the perimeter though.

Marcus Kennedy (2010, 6-9 PF)
Marcus had a solid game. The big bodied post had a transition follow up and was fouled inside. After an offensive rebound, he hit a fall away jumper. He possesses good hands and soft touch. Marcus showed to be unselfish too as he made several good passes. He also rebounded well.

Aaron Brown (2011, 6-5 SF/PF)
Aaron struggled during the first game I saw with several turnovers. He really got it going the second time around though. It was the best I've seen from him in terms of showing wing skills. Aaron hit several jumpers, including a three pointer. He handled well in the open court. As usual, he rebounded well. Aaron looks to be developing his perimeter game. He needs to show it more consistently though.

Chris Thompson (2010, 6-10 SG)
Chris showed that he can really shoot from the perimeter. He hit a pair of three pointers. He also scored on a pull up deep two. Chris didn't show much else besides a jumper though.

Jose Figueroa (2012, 6-5 SF)
This young forward played solid. He's got a solid build. He hit a runner and showed some ability to handle the ball. Jose also had a couple lay-ups.

Eric Raleigh (2010, 6-7 PF)
Eric was solid on this day. He has some nice size and good hands. The lefty proved to be pretty athletic with several blocks. He also pulled down quite a few rebounds. While he did score from time to time on the interior, for the most part Eric struggled converting. He certainly must finish better. He definitely has potential though.

Andre Rivers (2009, 6-5 SF)
Andre showed some ability as well. He scored on a scoop finish as well as a reverse. He had an athletic dunk on the break. Andre also followed his own miss. He showed some perimeter ability as he buried a three pointer.
