Recap: Las Vegas Scouting Events

Last week I traveled to Las Vegas to scout and evaluate Northern California players who were there playing with their AAU teams.  I observed several AAU Teams from Northern California play in the big three tournaments.  The Fab48, Adidas Championships and Bigfoot.  This was the last Viewing tournaments for College Coaches on the west coast. 

Here is my list of the top Nor-Cal players who performed in front of college coaches and media:

These are considered the top players from Northern California.   I (Britt Wright) was able to view.

Because of the size of the big 3 tournaments, teams playing  at various high school gyms in Las Vegas, made it difficult for me to see all the teams playing from Northern California.
