Capitol Hoops Attends U.S. All-Stars Capital Classic Practice
On Thursday evening Capitol Hoops went down to T.C. Williams High School to watch the U.S. All-stars practice. The team is being coached by Patterson High School head coach Harry Martin and his staff.
Some General thoughts after watching practice.
– T.C. Williams has a huge gymnasium, i mean HUGE.
– The U.S. All-stars are big, real big. 8 of their 11 players are 6’6″ or bigger.
– Sam Cassell Jr. Will announce his college decision at the Capital Classic on Saturday. Many expect Maryland to be his school.
-Maryland has some real good recruits, Seth Allen and Sam Cassel will bring immediate help.
– Charles Mitchell reminds the U.S. coaches and myself of Lonnie Baxter as he uses his body real well and has a big frame.
-Shaquille Cleare, the highest ranked player participating in the Capital Classic is due to arrive in town Thursday night and did not attend the first two practices.
– The best shooter on the U.S. All star team is 6’8″ Evan Nolte headed to Virginia.
– Montrezl Harrell had the best practice. The V-Tech commit gave 110% and showed all the skills you need from the most versatile position on the court, the small forward.
-Harry Martin and his Patterson staff are putting them through a lot in practice. If players anticipated the traditional all-star game practice mentality, they quickly learned they were going to work.
