The 2nd Annual Creme Open Run gave us our first glimpse of the new class of prospects coming up in San Diego. 

More than 65 rising eighth graders (and a handful of seventh graders) participated in two camp games before camp coaches and evaluators selected the top 30 to participate in next weekend’s 3P Creme of the County.

While not going into too much detail on rising eighth graders, we’ll give you our impressions of some of the top kids at the Open Run in a series of reports. First off, the top playmakers.

Creme Open Run – Best Playmakers

 

Camron Bellamy, Christian MS

Small in stature at 5-3, Bellamy (pictured above) is a shifty score-first point guard who uses pick and rolls to create space on the perimeter, where he fills it up in a hurry. He’s also a nice passer in transition. 

2023 PG Xavier Ogle made a big impression at the Creme Open Run

 

Xavier Ogle, Bernardo Heights MS

Ogle, another diminutive playmaker (5-5) is an assertive playmaker who is stronger than you would guess by looking. He plays downhill off of ball screens and makes plays for himself and others, and finishes through contact.

Jeffrey Temcho is a very solid prospect at this stage

 

Jeffrey Temcho, Mar Vista Academy

At 5-9, Temcho was one of the bigger playmaking guards at camp. He has good feel and plays with a nice pace (doesn’t get sped up) and is a willing passer off the screen and roll. Was streaky shooting it, but his mechanics were sound.

There weren’t many guards as crafty as 2023 G Drey Fox

 

Drey Fox, Carmel Valley MS

The crafty, 5-7 lead guard plays with great tempo, and can break his defender down off the dribble with the best of them. A solid scoring, his passing off of dribble penetration really made an impression.

2024 G JJ Sanchez was a crowd favorite at the Creme Open Run

 

JJ Sanchez, St. Pius X

One of five 2024 prospects in the gym, The 5-5 guard displayed high-level ball skills, court vision, craftiness and shooting ability. It comes as no surprise, as Sanchez is the younger brother of 2021 Mater Dei Catholic F Melo Sanchez. 

The game comes easy to 2024 G Euan Davis.

 

Euan Davis, Martin Luther King MS

Davis was another 2024 prospect who stood out. He has great size at this stage at 5-7, and makes things look easy on the floor, effortlessly changing speeds and getting into the paint at will.
