Boo Williams Review: Jabari Brown Explodes, Scottie Wilbekin Arrives

Jabari Brown Banner

The first leg of the Nike Elite Boys Youth League - also known as the Boo Williams Invitational - is behind us. If you didn't tune in during the weekend, here's the final wrap-up.

  • One target had an official blow-up. In Rivals' final write-up for the event, they highlighted Jabari Brown's performance. Brown, already plenty popular around these parts, probably did nothing to hurt himself by shooting 9-10 in the first half. Combine that with his "nuclear" performance the previous day, and it's safe to say that Brown's stock has raised plenty. Sadly, his school list wasn't kind:
    Jabari Brown indicated that Washington, California, and Arizona State lead for him right now with Arizona, UNLV, Texas A&M, Maryland, and Stanford all in the chase.

    Well, crud. Hopefully the Terps can make up some ground.

  • Another fringe target became legitimate. Scottie Wilbekin's name had been floating around for some time, but always as a fringe player. His performance at Boo, however, probably solidified him as a possible point guard candidate behind Quinn Cook and on par with Sterling Gibbs: Dave Telep said he improved greatly and "plays the right way."
  • A new target may have emerged. That would be Dorian Finney-Smith, who now lists Maryland as a suitor. That's new for DFS, who previously didn't have the Terps on his list. His performance at Boodid nothing to discourage any coaching staffs, so maybe we'll hear the name again.
  • 2012 is where it's at. While the focus will be on the 2011 recruiting class for basically the next full year, 2012 might be the more crucial one. Justin AndersonJerami Grant, and Tyler Harris all had notable weekends, and that's not even mentioning other local studs like Isaiah Miles and Daquan Cook. It appears as though plenty of talent will be available that year; getting a decent amount of it will be important.
