USA trials: Session four

MORE USA: Session 1 | Session 2 | Session 3

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Coming off an ankle sprain, elite forward Aaron Gordon made a significant impact at the 16-Under USA national team trials.

Gordon, a 6-foot-7 combo forward from San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty High, quickly made it clear that there is an elite prospect besides Jabari Parker vying for a spot on the USA team. Quick off the ground and quick to change direction, Gordon stood out with both his athleticism and his shooting touch.

Isaiah Whitehead 6-foot-3 2014 wing from Brooklyn (N.Y.) Lincoln High School - A confident wing scorer with a killer spin move, Whitehead was a solid performer throughout the trials.

Malik Price-Martin 6-foot-8 2013 power forward from Miami Monsignor Edward Pace High School - Price-Martin had made an athletic print on the trials from the beginning, but in the fourth session, he settled into his offensive game and had some impressive scores.

RECRUITING NEWS

It looks as if a Duke vs. North Carolina recruiting battle is in the works for 2014 standout wing Theo Pinson of Greensboro, N.C. Pinson has offers from both schools and recently visited them. He said it was a toss-up as to which visit was the best and that the two schools are in the lead for him.

Pinson has also visited Clemson and Tennessee and said that Tennessee was right behind Duke and North Carolina. He is also considering offers from Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Syracuse and Marquette.

Larry Austin, a 2014 point guard out of Springfield (Ill.) Lamphier High School, is being recruited the hardest by Ohio State, Tennessee and Illinois. In particular, Ohio State said it will watch him closely in July as a main point guard target for 2014.

Class of 2013 sharp-shooter Conner Frankamp of Wichita (Kan.) North High School is being recruited by Kansas, Oklahoma, Boston College, Nebraska, UCLA and Missouri. Kansas and Missouri are on him the hardest, and he would love a Kansas offer as a longtime Jayhawk fan.

And there are no changes to report in the recruitment of Aaron Gordon. The elite forward described his recruitment as slow right now.
