Here are the other players I did not cover before. Tyren Johnson will be in the next re-cap.

Ben Uzoh (Tulsa)- Uzoh averaged 15.3 points, 4.7 assists, 4.7 rebounds this past year. Scouts are raving about his athleticism and 6’9″ wingspan. He is the only player in school history to rank among the top-10 for points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocked shots. He had 12 games of 20+ points and 7 games of 7+ rebounds in his senior year. He showed flashes of triple-double potential and has drawn comparisons to Thunder PG Russel Westbrook.

Mikhail Torrance (Alabama)- In his senior season he averaged 15.6 points, 5.1 assists, 3.7 rebounds. The combo guard has good size at 6’5″ and 207 pounds. Scouts are raving about his court vision, handle and shooting range. He had 10 games where he made 2+ three pointers and had 9 games of 20+ points this past season.His physical play allows him to get to the foul line where averaged 4.8 attempts (86%) per game.

A.J. Slaughter (Western Kentucky)- Slaughter has increased his scoring, three pointers, assists and steals during each season. In his senior campaign he averaged 17.5 points, 4.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds. Western Kentucky has had 31 former players play in the NBA including Courtney Lee who was selected in the first round in the 2008 Draft.

Bobby Maze (Tennessee)- His collegiate career consisted of one year at Oklahoma, one year at Hutchinson CC and two years with the Vols. He played on the same AAU team as Kevin Durant and Ty Lawson.  Maze averaged 9.4 points in his senior season but finished 10th in the SEC with 3.2 assists per game. His biggest game of the season came against unbeaten (top ranked) Kansas. In the upset victory he had 16 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds. Maze shot just 25% from three which shows he needs improvement.

Stephen Dennis (Kutztown)- Led Division II in scoring with 26.5 points per game and was named the Division II Player of the Year. The 6″6″ guard  scored 30+ points in 1o games and 5+ assists in 13 games. Scouts say he needs to work on extending his range but he has a real knack of getting to the rim.
