MIAMI, Fla.- The McDonald's All American practices began Sunday in the brand new University of Miami practice facility. Amongst all the talented prospects participating in the game, Oklahoma signee Keith Gallon was one of the most impressive.
Gallon, who insists on being called Tiny, has his game on another level since working and dieting himself into shape. Looking almost 100-pounds lighter than this summer, Gallon ran the floor as well as any big man on the West team, and had his way with the much skinnier John Henson in the post.
The big advantage for the west is in the backcourt. Top ten shooting guard prospect Avery Bradley stood out as the top guard in the practices. But his teammate Michael Snaer was right with him.
Wally Judge was impressive playing the small forward position opposite of Henry. He made it extremely tough for Henry to get anything going on the offensive end, and then used his size to his advantage offensively.
Both Travis Wear and David Wear looked good on the offensive end, but it would be nice to see them not match up against each other in the next practices.
