Recruiting Notes

- Team Breakdown was led by Kenny Boynton with 16 points, while Eloy Vargas added 8 points by the intermission. The Georgia Stars top gun was Al-Farouq Aminu who had 8 points. He got support from front court running mates 6-foot-10 bookends Ralph Sampson and Darius Morrow who added 6 points each.

- Eloy Vargas, the 6-foot-10 post from Team Breakdown, has Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, Florida, Miami (FL), Indiana, Minnesota, Clemson, Virginia, and South Florida among his favorites.

- L.A. Pomlee, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Martin Brothers Select, has really blown-up in Orlando now that he's healthy and back in shape. Schools like Indiana, Kentucky, Providence, Alabama, and Ohio State have joined Iowa State, Iowa, Minnesota, Miami (FL), and Bradley as teams with serious interest in the physical rebounder and shot blocker.

- Vargas, who hadn't scored much for Team Breakdown during the week, showed why a number of majors are hot in pursuit of his services. He hit a 17-footer, did a nifty spin move with a dunk finish and threw a missed shot down with a nasty dunk to get the crowd buzzing

- Klay Thompson, 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Rancho Santa Margarita (CA) Santa Margarita, shined in the recent adidas Super 64 tournament in Las Vegas and the Best of the Summer at Loyola Marymount. Thompson's father Mychal was a standout for the Gophers and was the top overall pick in 1978. The Gophers have offered Thompson a scholarship.

The only guy I haven't heard of in this group is Pomlee, but he's attracting interest from some good schools, so it can only be good to get into the mix.
