Thoughts from the 2010 Comets Exposure Camp

I start my 2010-2011 season in force with a trip to suburban St. Cloud for the Comets Fall Exposure Camp.  87 players total and a nice turnout from the local college coaches. Tough day for the kids as today was an ACT today so there were those who had football last night, got up early today for the ACT and then made the trip to play 5 games at the camp.

From near and far, big to small, camp had a bit of it all.
  • Big as in Prior Lake's Carson Shanks.  Productive day for the big fella.
  • Small as in Tanner Odegaard from Brookings, SD.  At 5'8, this point guard from the Dakota Schoolers 16s was a handful all day.
  • Near as in Joe Burt from St. Cloud Cathedral.  The Border Battle in January is a priority for me now to see him play again on home turf.
  • Far as in the Mortel brothers from Luck, WI
  • Speaking of kids of I want to see more of, add Nate Kratch of Watertown-Mayer to that list.
  • Best prospect playing, TJ Okafor from Champlin Park. 
  • Seth Hinrichs from MACCRAY sitting out with a bum throwing/shooting shoulder thanks to being under center in football.  But he expects to be back at it in a couple of weeks.
  • Nice to see the kids follow the main instructions of move the ball and not jack 3s all day.  
  • That said, always nice to see a kid who can flat out shoot it.  Today that's Buffalo's Andy Ortmann.
  • Prior Lake's Jack Harrsion also hot from outside today.
  • Also liked what Grand Rapids center Mike Spoden did on the day.
  • Jayme Moten is back at New London-Spicer after temporarily being in St. Cloud.  He visits Texas-Pan American next weekend and then has a couple of D2 visits on tap.
