Eye catchers at Boo Williams

After breaking down the top performers at the Boo Williams Invitational with the All-Tournament Team, Rivals.com National Recruiting Analyst Jerry Meyer goes even deeper and looks at five prospects that caught his eye and should be making a lot more noise in the future.

Here is a look at the Boo Williams eye catchers.

Dorenzo Hudson, Union City (N.C.) Forrest Hills
Height: 6-foot-4
Weight: 200 pounds
Position: Shooting guard
With a classic shooting guard frame at 6-foot-4, 200-pounds, Dorenzo Hudson put up big scoring numbers for the Charlotte Royals during the event, including a 49 point outburst in one game.

Hudson has a quick release and consistent jumper from the arc both coming off screens and in transition. More of a pull up shooter off the drive than a slasher to the basket, he is also able to post up smaller defenders and do damage with a nice turn around jumper.

With the strength to defend at the high-major level, Hudson does have room to improve his lateral quickness. He also is working hard to improve his ball handling skills.

A host of ACC and SEC schools will track Hudson over the summer

Chandler Parsons, Winter Park (Fla.) Lake Howell
Height: 6-foot-8
Weight: 190 pounds
Position: Small forward
Team Florida sharp shooter Chandler Parsons played like a potential high-major player last weekend. He looked very good playing the role of the second option behind the dominating play of teammate Nick Calathes.

Parsons as the length to score both inside and outside. Teaming up with Calathes, Parsons hit a number of big threes on the pick and pop ball screen. He ran the floor well and got some points slashing to the basket.

He must get significantly stronger to defend and rebound on the high-major level, but he does have length and good feet.

The bottom line is that his skills with the ball and his shooting touch combined with his length will make him an intriguing high-major prospect.

Antwaine Wiggins, Greenville (Tenn.)
Height: 6-foot-6
Weight: 185 pounds
Position: Small forward
Antwaine Wiggins established himself as a very intriguing high-major prospect last weekend playing for the Tennessee Travelers. Just think of a left handed, couple inches shorter Kevin Durant, and you have a pretty good picture of what Wiggins is like.

He has a very smooth stroke from behind the arc and has a knack for finding the seams in the defense for the mid-range jumper. Also capable of slashing to the basket, Wiggins has the body control and poise with the ball to make plays in the wing.

Definitely in need of strength gain, Wiggins does move his feet well on defense and causes problems for opponents with his long reach.

Look for Wiggins to continue building momentum throughout the summer.

Jamine Peterson, Notre Dame Prep (Mass.)
Height: 6-foot-6
Weight: 210 pounds
Position: Small forward
Nobody attacked the basket with as much ferocity and athleticism the past weekend as Jamine Peterson of the Metro Hawks. While his teammates wore down on the last morning of the event, Peterson's motor never slowed down.

Although undersized as a forward, Peterson has a long reach and explosive jumping ability. He gets points by out running opponents on the wing and picking up offensive rebounds.

Defensively, he can guard bigger players in the post as well as defend quicker players on the perimeter.

St. John's and UMass have already offered and look for more schools to offer this high energy player.

Ed Davis, Mechanicsville (Va.) Hanover
Height: 6-foot-8
Weight: 195 pounds
Position: Power forward
Ed Davis came into the Boo Williams Invitational with a reputation of being a top prospect in the class of 2008, and he did not disappoint. With a father at 6-foot-10 and a mother at 6-foot-1, Davis is presently 6-foot-8 and still growing.

Playing for the Boo Williams Summer League squad, Davis grabbed loads of rebounds with agile feet, long reach and sure hands. A quick finisher once he snags an offensive rebound, he also showed the potential of having an effective back to the basket game. At this point he is still a little raw offensively and apparently adjusting to the physical play of AAU ball.

Still needing to get stronger, Davis has the length to bother shooters on the defensive end.
