May 5, 2014 - More guys from the 41st Annual Capitol Classic are featured below. Click here for for Part. 1.

Brandon Alston, 6'4", 185 pound swingman, Herndon (VA) - Headed to Lehigh, Alston was one of this year's Capital Classic surprises, accounting for 25 points, six rebounds and five assists in his team's second game victory. A MVP designation was earned.

Clearly is capable of impacting the game in many areas. When asked his strengths, Alston noted "Creating, scoring. Just playmaking. Not just really one thing". In terms of development, after opining "I can do it all", he indicated a desire to "get better at everything, dribbling, shooting", as "I want to get to the next level".

Why Lehigh?

Andrew Robinson, letting it fly from outside.

"The coaches recruited me very well" he said. "It's a great academic school, that comes first...and then Kyle, the first year coach up there saw me at St. Benedicts", where he attended for half a year. Alston also indicated "The coaches are just great and I love the players".

Being a more consistent defender should be a point of emphasis for Alston; he can strap, but can take it to a higher level.

Andrew Robinson, 6'5", 200 pound swingman, Springbrook (MD) - Why would a guy that holds offers from "Drexel, Delaware State, Towson, Marshall, Siena, Robert Morris, LIU, and Binghamton" decide Putnam Science Academy (prep school) will be his next move? It's a sibling thing, as Robinson shared "We wanted to see if we can play together in college, so I'm doing that to try and get more looks ".

While attempting to drum up an option for both he and brother Aaron, Robinson should work on attacking the rim; an excellent shooter, doing so will expand his game. Also, Andrew has to become more comfortable in catch and shoot situations, including using screens/curls to get open.

Notched 17 points, two rebounds and three assists on 6-10 shooting, including 5-7 on long balls in the headliner game.

Justin Sneed - 6'1", 165 pound point guard, Wise (MD) - "Right now I'm still checking out a few colleges. I like Cecil Community College. I'm also looking at Believe Prep", said Sneed after his 12 point, two rebound, six assist, winning performance in the first game. During the contest, Sneed again proved himself a good floor general who understands tempo.

Interestingly enough Sneed, who shared "I'm academically qualified" for college is "still looking at junior colleges and prep school", presumably in an effort to increase his Division I looks. D2 schools such as Barton have reportedly offered scholarships.

At this point Sneed indicated "I'm just keeping my options open". His decision time frame is "within a week or two".

For college, Sneed must become more explosive, which strength training will help. He must also get off the ground higher on his jumper.
