Francisco’s Finest: The Battlezone (Standouts)

CORONA, Ca—The 4th Annual Battlezone, sponsored by Adidas, got off to a terrific start with a number of fine performances as well as some intriguing surprises. The usual suspects—Evan Mobley, Marcus Bagley, and Mikey Williams to name a few—exhibited the kind of skill and overall talent to warrant the attention they have received from college coaches and scouts alike. However, there a number of sleeper-types like high-flying junior Ty Harper and Mr. Fundamental 2021 Daniel Rouzan. 

Garrett Schaefer (Temecula Valley)

2020, PG, 6-foot-3, 185 pounds

Joel’s Take: Schaefer, who is bound for Cal Poly Pomona, should be categorized as a diamond in the rough. He’s an athletic combo-guard prospect who pushes the ball at a relentless pace and can get to the rim in a hurry. His improvements include a reliable jump shot in the mid-range area as well as his passing acumen—especially in transition. On the other hand, changing speeds should be the next element of his game that needs refining. 

Caden Starr (Santa Clarita Christian)

2020, WF, 6-foot-6, 185 pounds

Joel’s Take: The multi-skilled Starr had his whole skill package
