Loveridge dominates Ballislife all-star weekend

Jordan Loveridge keeps improving his national stock, and he doesn't even need to impress anyone anymore.

The Utah signee made a splash this weekend at the Ballislife.com All-America game in Fullerton, Calif. The former West Jordan star and Tribune Class 5A MVP led all scorers in the Saturday exhibition with 26 points, and the night before won the 3-point shooting contest.

Playing against other elite recruits, Loveridge came away as one of the most talked-about players of the weekend - even if he wasn't one of the best-known coming in.

"All the people that were mostly involved with it they knew who I was," Loveridge said. "The people who came and watched didn't know who I was."

Safe to say that changed.

Loveridge may have put to rest some of the biggest questions facing him before he joins the Utes this summer: Can he play on the perimeter full time and is he ready to compete at the college level, at any position, immediately?

Loveridge says yes.

"Those are some of the best layers in the whole nation," he said, "and to know I could be one of the best players out of all of them, that gives me a lot of confidence."
