Here are some reviews regarding the Adidas May Classic in Bloomington, Indiana from this past weekend.
John Stovall (Prep Spotlight Scouting) mentions a few Ohio guys in his story on www.espn.com including Mark Donnal, Andre Yates, and Maverick Morgan.
Mark Donnal (Whitehouse, Ohio/Anthony Wayne)
2013, PF/C, 6-8, 225 pounds | Team: Indiana Elite South
He has really come on in the last year, improving by leaps and bounds as a player and a prospect. Donnal is a solid athlete who can play above the rim and has developed a solid face-up jump shot with range to 17 feet. He can also score on the low block, but prefers to face the basket and is a good rebounder who uses his big body well inside.
Andre Yates (Madison, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison)
2012, PG, 5-11, 185 pounds | Team: Ohio Hoopsters
The lefty scoring point guard is an effective, but streaky shooter with range to 22 feet. Yates loves to take a few rhythm dribbles to set up his smooth jump shots, is a good competitor and takes pride in his defense. He is a solid passer who can create fairly well for his teammates and helped lead his team to the U-17 championship.
The U-17 division was won by Wisconsin Playground Warriors, which defeated the Ohio Hoopsters, 70-46. Tokoto lead the Warriors with 17 and Yates lead the Hoopsters with 13.
2013 center prospect Maverick Morgan (Springboro, Ohio/ Springboro) is a very intriguing player. He has a big body, very long arms and is a solid rebounder who is an improving scorer inside. He is going to become a Midwest priority as he continues to improve.
Here is a piece from Mike Pegram's (www.peegs.com) in regards to Mark Donnal.
The best 16 & under pool game of the weekend may have been a great back and forth tussle between the Spiece Indy Heat squad with IU commits Trey Lyles and James Blackmon and the Indiana Elite South squad led by Big Ten target Mark Donnal. Park Tudor's Trevon Bluiett was the leading scorer in this one, scoring 28 points but his drive as time was expiring was blocked by Donnal to preserve a 78-77 win for Indiana Elite South. Donnal finished with 23 points for the winners while Blackmon had 25 and Lyles finished with six.
