The Minnesota Select College Exposure Camp took place Sunday afternoon with 60 kids first putting in skill work and later going head to head for three contests. The event drew numerous college coaches from the NSIC, MIAC, and NAIA levels plus others. Orono standout Brady Wohler was one of the players in attendance who excelled.
Brady Wohler of Orono - Wohler had St. Cloud State coach Kevin Schlagel following his every move on Sunday and the Huskies top dog had to of been impressed. Wohler put on a strong show for all in attendance going hard from start to finish and producing numbers.
John Veil of Blake - Veil is a 2014 point guard with grit, a hot hand, and an eye for passing angles. He played as tough as any backcourt standout at the event plus aggressively looked for his shot finishing at a rate of around 50 percent. Bottom line is Veil is tough and he's going to take a lot of pressure off of Kebu Johnson.
Francois Davis of Minneapolis Roosevelt - I guarantee you this agile 6-foot-1 shooting guard had his name jotted down by college coaches. Davis was all over the place looking for point production getting it in anyway he could. His effort was constant.
Andrew Laughlin of Duluth Denfeld - At 6-foot-5 Laughlin was a pest all afternoon. It honestly seemed that he was willing to go after boards no matter where they came off the glass plus he tried to get in front of every penetrating guard to take a charge. There wasn't a possession he didn't run the floor hard and it allowed him to get four lay-ups a game either in transition or collect misses. That's not to mention all the points he scored with his low post game both facing up and back to the rack.
Gage Dies of Prairie Seeds Academy - The 6-foot-7 transfer from Sioux Falls is an intriguing prospect. He's long, well built, athletic, and has a developing skill set. Dies attempted several long range jumpers and found some success although the more interesting thing was his footwork and mechanics for a guy his size. Overall there is a lot of raw talent to work with plus Dies dominated the glass at times.
Kharie Kirkland of Tartan - Kharie isn't really a point guard but he has the feel off the dribble of a point guard. His vision when attacking the lane is at a high level as he created numerous lay-ups for teammates plus made some contested shots himself.
Anthony Anderson of Eden Prairie - At 6-foot-1 and strong Anderson looks like a senior at least. Unfortunately for all Lake Conference foes Anderson is a sophomore and if he scores consistently this winter like he did at Lakeville South on Sunday he's going to have a solid season.
Jack Harrison of Prior Lake - Harrison had an outstanding third game aggressively taking the ball to the front of the rim from whatever spot on the floor he caught at. Time and time again he scored over defenders and it was one of his best performances of his career.
Sam Burt of Eastview - When people talk Eastview right now they are saying King, Oberfeld, Haugh, and that makes sense. With Burt sitting out due to injury last year one can see how he was forgotten. But it won't take long for coaches to notice him once the game starts because Sam is now 6-foot-6 and looks strong as an ox. He played strong Saturday too.
Carson Shanks of Prior Lake - Carson's best game was his second game because he went to the block, posted strong, presented a target, caught, and turned to dominate. He did this time and time again mixing power moves with a couple short hooks as well as a reverse. If this is how Carson consistently plays on the block this winter people are going to be very scared of the Lakers. His defense already terrifies opponents, imagine if he's scoring ten times at the rim!
Latrell Love of Minnetonka - Amped up and excited to play against Shanks the long armed Love showed his craft early scoring six quick field goals and assisting on two others as his team went ahead 19-9. Then in the third game Love's team lost at the buzzer but they routinely went to him down the stretch and Latrell answered with well placed scores off the backboard. Few in the state are as crafty as Mr. Love.
Zach Jiskra of Sartell - Jiskra had one of the best scoring spurts of the day hitting a trey, driving for a lay-in, hitting a baseline jumper, and then making another trey all in about a three minute span.
