by azpreps | Posted on Saturday, June 9th, 2018

Cody Cameron of Arizona Varsity.com attended last weekend's Southwest All-American Camp, and here are his standout players from a fantastic Top 40 All-Star game . . .

Name: Terrence “TJ” Green

School: Carl Hayden

Height: 6’5

Class: 2020

One of the best players I saw all day. Green possess nice offensive handles that compliments his explosive first step to the basket. Add those traits to his smooth mid-range jump-shot and you have yourself a talented offensive scorer. Green lacks no athletic ability, the soon-to-be Junior was all over the court making plays. One of his biggest strengths is getting to the basket in Iso situations. Lookout for TJ Green next season, this guy’s a player.

Name: Jordan Wollangk

School: Mesquite

Height: 5’10

Class: 2020

Scrappy, aggressive, and an all-around playmaker; a short description of Wollangk’s performance in the Underclassmen All-Star game. Wollangk took control of his offense with pure confidence, hardly ever making a mistake with the ball in his hands. He lasered in a no look pass to a back-cutting teammate for a beautiful assist, found wide-open teammates when double-teamed, and was absolute money with his mid-range jump shots. Wollangk got after it on defense as well. Wollangk has a 4.4 G.P.A., getting it done on the court and the classroom.

Name: Jeffrey Thomas III

School: Palo Verde

Height: 5’9

Class: 2019

A fast and aggressive player. Thomas had quick hands resulting in steals and multiple fast-break points for his team in the Top 40 All-Star game. Thomas played great help defense and hustled every second he was on the court. Thomas topped off his outstanding performance knocking down a step-back jumper right in the face of a much taller defender.

Name: Carter Van Hammond

School: Perry

Height: 6’9

Class: 2021

Tall, long, and athletic, Van Hammond grabbed every single board that went near him in the Top 40 All-Star game. He dominated the paint offensively and ran a couple perfect pick-n-rolls finishing strong at the rim. Carter Van Hammond showed us why his name has been buzzing around the state this off-season.

Name: Lucas Elliott

School: Pusch Ridge

Height: 6’10

Class: 2019

One of the biggest players at the camp sure made his presence felt right at the Top 40 All-Star game. Sprinting down the court on a fast-break, Elliott received a pass just inside the free throw line, took two steps and slammed a powerful one-hand jam that rocked the gym. Elliott knocked down a couple mid-range jumpers and was also a big rim protector on defense, swatting down anything that was shot near him. Elliott looked fantastic at the camp.

Name: Trey Donaldson

School: Gilbert Christian

Height: 6’1

Class: 2020

Just an overall fantastic hustle player. Donaldson played some of the best defense at the camp, coming up with multiple steals and leading the fast-break charge down the court. Donaldson has tremendous vision, finding open teammates for assists consistently. Ran the pick-n-roll very well.
