Minnesota prospects drawing praise at Peach Jam, other national prep tournaments


Apple Valley's Tyus Jones, former Robbinsdale Cooper and current Findlay Prep star Rashad Vaughn, and DeLaSalle's Reid Travis are the clear cut top three prep basketball players in the class of 2014 in Minnesota.

The hype has been massive surrounding all three, and it will only get crazier as the basketball season gets closer.

This time of year is huge for AAU ball, and one of the biggest national tournaments in the country is the Peach Jam, held annually in South Carolina.

Jones, playing for Howard Pulley, is there, showing his impressive offensive ability.

Playing alongside Jones is Travis, who also put up big numbers in game one. Here's the box score for Pulley, who went down to Expressions 73-71.

Drawing the highest praise, however, is Vaughn, who is at the Reebok Classic Breakout. CBS Sports Jon Rothstein has fallen in love with Vaughn's ability.

The Peach Jam runs from July 10-14, you can follow that action here. The Reebok Breakout runs from July 9-12, follow that here.
