Hardwood Elite Pump N Run recap

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- The Hardwood Elite Pump N Run Fall Camp is an invitation-only event that assembles some of the best talent from the upper Midwest as well as a handful of special invites from various parts of the country. The event consisted of skill development drills and a series of highly competitive games.

Standout Players

Rashad Vaughn (Minneapolis, Minn./ Robbinsdale Cooper)

2014, SF, 6-foot-6, 195

Offers: Syracuse, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Iowa State and Baylor.

Vaughn was in full attack mode on the break after snatching defensive rebounds and was an immediate coast-to-coast threat throughout the event. He pushed the ball at high speeds and got to the basket at will, finishing with athleticism in traffic. Vaughn was also very unselfish, frequently finding teammates for scores when double-teamed. His ability to slash from the wing was also very impressive as Vaughn beat defenders off the dribble for pull-ups and an array of perimeter jumpers.

Josh Perkins (Denver, Colo./Regis)

2014, PG, 6-2, 185

Offers: Colorado, Gonzaga, San Diego State, Houston, Arizona, Wake Forest and New Mexico.

Perkins is a strong and athletic point guard who has a terrific motor and plays with great pace. He pushes the ball on the break and can easily change speeds or cut on a dime to break pressure. Perkins is an excellent draw-and-kick or drop-off passer with a good feel for the game and matching court vision. Perkins can get to the rim and finish through contact or hit the open 3-ball when left alone. He also does a good job of making teammates better. He will need to improve his decision-making, become more vocal as a leader and try not to gamble so much on defense. Perkins has all the mental and physical tools to be an excellent point guard at the next level and possibly beyond.

Amir Coffey (Minneapolis, Minn./Hopkins)

2016, PG/SG, 6-4, 170

Offers: Iowa State and Penn State.

Strong Interest: Minnesota, Purdue, Northwestern and Arizona State.

This young combo guard has size, length, skill and an extremely high basketball IQ. Coffey is a smooth lefty who can make plays off the dribble or knock down treys with his feet set. He is a terrific passer on the break and can locate the open man after dribble penetration. Coffey will have to continue to add strength and be more vocal as he learns to lead his team, but everything is in place for Coffey to be special player with continued hard work. This kid has upside that’s off the charts.

Jarvis Johnson (Minneapolis, Minn./DeLaSalle)

2015, PG, 6-0, 180

Offers: Creighton and Iowa State.

Strong Interest: Minnesota and Gonzaga.

Johnson is a true point guard with a strong, tight handle and terrific court vision. He attacks off the bounce with his head and eyes up and is at his best when he keeps the ball moving. Johnson can get to the rim and has the ability to make open shots, but is streaky at times. He has a nice feel for the game but must have better judgment on when to take chances on offense.

Marshawn Wilson (Hill Murray, Minn.)

2015, SG/SF, 6-3, 185

Offers: Northern Iowa and Creighton.

Wilson is an athletic wing who can get to the rim and has the ability to score through contact using his physical frame. He has an excellent midrange pull-up jumper, and although he is streaky, Wilson can make shots from behind the arc. Wilson will have to work on his ballhandling especially when under pressure and he will have to limit his gambling on defense. He also has the ability to defend both wing positions well. Wilson is still learning and adding to his game but is off to a great start in becoming a very good player.
