Zags Offer Jeff Guard

Emptying the notepad from the UA College View Showcase

Class of 2014 guard Kameron Chatman picked up an important offer last week.

SALEM, OR – I spent an evening at the Oregon Under Armour College View Showcase last week to sneak a peek at some prospects from the Pacific Northwest. There were a handful of players that jumped out.

Perhaps the biggest news of the event came from Kameron Chatman, a class of 2014 guard from Portland (Ore.) Jefferson, was offered a scholarship from Gonzaga. This isn’t surprising, really. Chatman is one of the top prospects in the Pacific Northwest. He’s a total match-up problem because of his point guard skills in a small forward body. He’s a long term player to watch. Gonzaga won’t be the only high-major offer he reels in.

Jake Ehlers of Corvallis (Ore.) High School is shaping up to be a nice mid-level player for the mid-majors. He’s a do-everything kind of big man. At 6-foot-6, he doesn’t have ideal height and he isn’t the most impressive athlete. His value is his self-awareness. He knows who he is, what he can do and what his strengths are. Ehlers has Portland, South Francisco, Weber State, Portland State, Washington State, Oregon State and others

In a perfect world, Vancouver (Wash.) big man Caleb Dressler said he’d like to commit to a school in August and sign in November. Currently he has offers from Cal Poly, San Francisco and Portland State. He’s visited Gonzaga and Washington unofficially this summer. Dressler said he’s heard from all of the Pac-12 schools except the Arizona schools, USC, UCLA and Colorado.

Seattle Prep has been the home to several of the top prospects from the Emerald City over the past decade. Josh Martin could be next. He was the most promising player for the Seattle Friends of Hoop team. The class of 2014 forward is longer than his 6-foot-6 frame suggests. He’s a hustle player to the fullest extreme. If Martin continues to fill out his long frame, watch out. If not, he is still an attractive mid-level prospect.

I’ve been a big believer in point guard L.J. Westbrook of North Salem since seeing him in June at the Rose City Showcase. The 6-foot-2 rising junior has great speed, great length, great upside and plenty to like. West Coast Conference schools are evaluating him while Oregon State and Washington State are sneaking a peek, too.

Zach Gengler was a nice revelation at the event. The 6-foot-3 guard from Silverton (Ore.) was Westbrook’s right hand man throughout the event. Gengler, a rising junior, is coming off a good start to July from the Pangos event. He is also coming off a sophomore season where he averaged 20 points a game.


Oregon State, Washington State, Washington, Portland, Penn, Princeton, Montana State, UC Irvine and Seattle all had assistant coaches at the Under Armour Showcase on Thursday night.
