ESPN's team of basketball recruiting analysts have been checking in this week at the LeBron Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio, where several locals have stood out.
On day one, Salisbury (Conn.) forward Chris McCullough and Hotchkiss (Conn.) forward Austin Colbert made a favorable impression on Paul Biancardi, Joel Francisco and John Stovall:
Austin Colbert (Lakeview, Conn./Hotchkiss)
2013, PF, 6-foot-9, 200 pounds
He is an athletic, skilled forward who always stands out during drills. He showed he could make 17-foot jumpers and finish above the rim.
Chris McCullough (New York/Salisbury School)
2014, PF, 6-9, 200 pounds
Chris has great skills and moves well for someone who is 6-9. He even worked out with the wings and fit right in.
On Day 2, Northwest Catholic (Conn.) wing Kuran Iverson made a splash:
Kuran Iverson (Windsor, Conn./Northwest Catholic)
2013, WF, 6-8, 200 pounds
Iverson is a long and lean wing forward prospect with excellent ball skills and a smooth shooting stroke. During the many shooting drills, Iverson exhibited an effortless shooting touch out to 22 feet.
