The Under Armour Central Valley Fall Classic

The Under Armour Central Valley Fall Classic featured a number of prominent prep talents.

Do click on the link above -- here's a taste of the participating NorCal prospects:

Dylan Alexander, 6-3 | G
Weston Ranch
Dylan is a unique prospect in the 2013 class because of his ability to play at the 1, 2 or 3 positions. He has great speed in the open court and is deceptively athletic, rising up to thunder dunk on any unsuspecting player in his path. He possesses a deadly shooting touch out to the 3 point range and most importantly he isn't afraid to take that big shot.

Daveion Leverett, 6-7 | PF
Weston Ranch
Anyone even thinking about contesting his shot should be prepared to be at the wrong end of a posterization. To say Daveion jumps out of the gym would be an understatement but it would be a mistake to think he's just a highlight reel. He has good ball handling ability and can grab it off the rim and go.

Kendall Smith, 6-3 | G
Deer Valley
Every time I see Kendall he seems to have added another component to his game. He also appears to have picked up a couple of inches. At 6-3 he creates match up problems for smaller guards. He has a quick crossover and an even quicker first step that allows him to get to the spots on the floor that he likes to shoot and get to the rim at will.

Malik Pope, 6-8 | W
Laguna Creek
Looks like Pope grew another inch since the summer. At 6-8 he'd be a formidable low post player at any level, but his ability to put the ball on the floor and push it like a guard makes him  one of the toughest defensive assignments. Not only can he attack the basket at will, he is developing an outside shot that defenders must respect.

Shaun Rogers, 6-6 | W
Deer Valley
Athletic wing/forward. Attacks the basket with gusto. Seems to relish the contact. Can also play way above the rim. His upside is off the charts.

Tre Belton, 6-6 | W
Capital Christian
When you watch Tre play it's hard to believe that he's just a sophomore. He has good ball handles and terrific speed. he plays the game with high energy. His upside is off the charts.
