Here are 12 players who our scouting staff discussed in great detail as we assembled our updated ESPN 100 rankings. These players have played well and have had some outstanding performances but just missed the cut.

Kobe Eubanks
SG, 6-foot-5, 185 pounds
Centereach, N.Y./Our Savior
Recruiting Interest:
George Mason, Missouri State, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Central Florida

Eubanks has very good size for a wing. He is a terrific athlete, an excellent all-around scorer that also makes his presence known as a perimeter rebounder. He has played well this fall and winter, which earned him Top 100 consideration.

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. -- The inaugural Battle at the Beach, orchestrated by Etop Udo-Ema, was launched at Redondo Union High School this week and to sum it up in a few words -- it made quite a splash. Start with the premier backcourt players in attendance like Jordan McLaughlin, Quentin Snider and Devearl Ramsey, then toss in a stellar hospitality room and the day was quite profitable from all angles. The frontcourt talent was scarce, but there were a number of talented perimeter prospects who exhibited elite level skills and savvy.

Let’s examine which players made an impression at the event.
