This past weekend was when the highly anticipated West Coast Elite Camp made its way to Colorado. They had a big turnout with plenty of top players to talk about but there were certain players that caught our eye. In this article we break down part two of our notable players on the weekend.
Langston Reynolds- Denver East- 2022
Langston continues to impress, every time I see him he has worked and added something new to his game. This past weekend I noticed that he was more attentive on defense which led to easy deflections and turnovers which allowed easy baskets. He is easily one of the top freshmen and is only getting better. He is a two-way player that will be a well-known name come junior season.
Myles Purchase- Cherry Creek- 2021
Myles just has that competitive edge in him which you don’t see often. His competitive nature puts him over the top and is a reason that he is succeeding and he will bring that nightly for Cherry Creek this season. In a showcase with top players he made it a point to defend the top ballhandlers each time down and make it hard for them. He plays hard-nosed defense and goes at them on the offensive end as well and that’s the type of qualities that are looked for in a leader.
Blake Whitelaw- George Washington- 2019
Blake is one of the most improved players I seen this weekend from the last time I seen him. He came out with improved footwork, aggressive offensively and tough defense and he had one of the highlights of the weekend as he had more than one posterizing two hand dunks. He will be on a young but talented George Washington unit that should catch viewers off guard this year. This was a great overall event for him to boost his stock.
Jordan Snell- ThunderRidge- 2022
At 5’4 Jordan Snell was one of the smallest players at the event, but with his first few shots all falling it was easy to see that he was one of the most talented. The more that you watch him play, the more you fall in love with his game as he does so many great things to be so small. He boxes out, he penetrates when needed and creates issues with his ball handling but the best part of his game is his shooting. He knocked down countless shots and looks to be one of the best shooters in the state. He showed unlimited range and a toughness on defense that is not too often for a person this size. He stands out for the 2022 class and will be a fun player to follow.
Yusef Washington- Denver East- 2019
Yusef played with a chip on his shoulder all weekend and it wasn’t hard to tell that he was one of the better players in the gym that’s ready to prove himself. He had countless rim rattling dunks and a few solid mid-range looks. Yusef isn’t typically a player that shoots the ball a ton but when he does get open looks he is capable of knocking it down. He is a very versatile player that has popped up on my radar.
