The fun of LIVE period is truly to watch millionaire college coaches and aspiring millionaire college coaches watching barely proven and unproven high school basketball players.  The dynamic is weird and infused with hope.

These are many of the players college coaches watched in person during the second week of AAU LIVE period.


Damion Baugh was evaluated by Cincinnati Assistant Coach Antwon Jackson.  They have offered.

Matthew Murrell was offered by Cincinnati Assistant Coach Antwon Jackson.  They have offered.

Saturday afternoon both Matthew and Damion were evaluated by Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State, Illinois State, FIU, Xavier, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest x2, Iowa State HC, Cincinnati x2.

Penny Hardaway has been watching James Wiseman (now Hoop City 17u) all month long.

Virginia Head Coach Tony Bennett spent the afternoon at B.O.T.S.  He has offered 2020 Keon Johnson.  Perhaps he will make an offer to another wing.  They need at least one player in 2019 class.

Belmont watched WHBH 16u Friday afternoon.

Middle Tennessee, Tennessee State, and Chattanooga evaluated 2020 PG Jacobi Wood (WHBH 16u).

Damion Baugh and Jaykwon Walton (AL) were evaluated by Auburn Head Coach Bruce Pearl.  Auburn has offered both players already.

Piedmont watched Team Arete versus Pro One Select 17u White.  The Pro One team is terrible though they have Brandon Nicholas, who we have ranked #18 in our latest 2019 player rankings.

Murray State Head Coach Matt McMahon evaluated K.J. Johnson (EAB 17u).  Murray State offered him earlier this summer.  Murray State Assistant Coach Casey Long was also evaluating K.J.

Lee, Piedmont, Alabama Huntsville all watched Chattanooga Elite Navy 17u play.  They seem to attract most D2 coaches to their games. Covenant dropped by too.

Tennessee Tech Head Coach Steve Payne and TTU Associate Head Coach Jason Taylor observed Tennessee Bobcats.  The three prospects of note on the team are: 2022 Braden Ilic, 2019 WG Dominique Oggs, and 2020 SG Cody Potter.

Vanderbilt Head Coach Bryce Drew and Assistant Coach Diebler watched Keon Johnson.  He has a Vanderbilt offer.

Mercer took a very short look at Tennessee Tigers 17u.

Jacobi Wood was evaluated by Chattanooga, Lipscomb, and Tennessee State.

Lee University checked out WHBH Gold.  Not sure which player they were watching.  Maybe J’Quan Ewing?
