Danielle Ballard standout at Summer Derby Classic

Chris Hansen of ESPN Hoopgurlz was on hand checking out talent at Michael T White's Summer Derby Classic. Here is what he thought of Danielle Ballard.

Danielle Ballard burst onto the national scene during her freshman year at Memphis Central, helping her team to a 25-2 record and finishing No. 24 in the ESPN RISE Fab 50. Offensively she is one of the most gifted combo guards in the class. She has incredible body control and physical strength not usually found at her age. She is shifty and has a truly explosive first step. When she gets to the rim she can finish with either hand, as well. What's lacking is a passion for playing defense; with all her physical gifts she has the tools to be a lockdown defender and we know she has it in her because she showed it during the high school season. If she can keep the power switched flipped to "on," there are few people that will stop her.
