Evaluations from Ken Tysiac at the Charlotte Observer.com Basketball recruiting blogspot and Ken has much more than what we have listed here when you CLICK HERE……

P.J. Hairston: Wing from Greensboro(Dudley HS/Hargrave Military Academy) didn’t take over at this tournament in the way you would expect from a player committed to North Carolina.

He seems to have all the tools – size and a wide-shouldered, powerful body, but needs to learn to use his strength better to finish on the drive. Nonetheless, he can be extremely effective when he is hitting from the outside, and he rebounds extremely well for a wing player.

Tyler Lewis: Point guard in the Class of 2012 from Lewisville, N.C.(Forsyth Country Day School), is the most divisive figure among talent evaluators in the state.

He’s listed at 5-11, but he’s not even that tall. Although he works hard on defense, he can be overpowered by bigger, stronger guards, and some wonder whether he’s an ACC-caliber player because he’s small.

But he scores from every area on the floor and possesses extraordinary vision and passing ability. With scholarship offers from schools including N.C. State, Wake Forest, Charlotte, Virginia Tech and Miami, he clearly has impressed college coaches.

The guess here is that he will be a successful ACC player but won’t get a scholarship offer from North Carolina or Duke.

Joseph Uchebo: At 6-foot-9, the Oak Ridge Military(ORMA) forward can bang inside and demonstrated remarkable ball-handling skills at the Tournament of Champions.

Uchebo held his own against the top player in the Class of 2011, 6-11 Andre Drummond, and gives N.C. State an outstanding addition as he is reclassifying to 2011 from 2012.
