Editor's note: This is the latest entry in Dave Telep's July Road Trip blog. Throughout the month, Dave will check in each day he's on the road while covering some of the biggest basketball recruiting events in the country. He'll let you know where he's at, offer some highlights of the day and give a quick look at what's next.

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. & AIKEN, S.C. -- As a scout, you kind of live for days like Wednesday. Going into the action with few expectations and coming out of the day with the name of a 7-footer you’ve never seen before? I’ll take that every time.

My day was split between the Peach Jam 16s in North Augusta and a series of showcase games at the Peach State over in Aiken. Rising junior center Doral Moore (Locust Grove, Ga./Luella) was the highlight, but along the way a few cool viewings happened that made for a fun-filled Wednesday.

By the way, it’s now much more difficult to get a seat in the gym. Wednesday was the start of the July evaluation period and the first day college coaches could be out on the road watching prospects.

Here are some nuggets from the first day in South Carolina.
