Forward Ivan Harris has shaved his head since last season with Erie and no longer rocks the braids.

The Erie BayHawks have to make their final two cuts by Wednesday at 5 p.m. to get their roster down to 10 players for the season opener Friday at Fort Wayne.

On Monday night, the BayHawks had a controlled scrimmage at East High School that revealed quite a bit about each of the remaining 12 players. The White team consisted of guards Cedric Jackson, Oliver Lafayette, Rod Wilmont, forwards Ivan Harris, Kyle Goldcamp and center John Bryant.

That team beat the Black team, 34-32. The black team consistead of first-round pick, guard Donell Taylor, guards Zach Sowers and forwards Jackie Manuel, Martin Zeno, Alade Aminu and Jarvis Gunter.

Very competitive game, but here’s what I noticed about each player in the scrimmage.

Been checking out the big fella in camp.

John Bryant is slimming down.

He came into camp weighing at least 300 pounds, but the former Santa Clara center is running better, dunking the ball and even had a follow up dunk.

This is good sign for the Erie BayHawks. At 6-foot-11, he has the size to be a factor in the paint.

The Erie BayHawks released Erie native Joe Jones earlier today and kept former Gannon power forward Kyle Goldcamp.

Jones’ downfall was his lack of strength. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, Jones just didn’t match up physically with the bigger guards in camp.

I talked to Erie coach John Treloar today and he simply said Jones, who starred at Edinboro and Cathedral Prep,  needs to get in the weight room.

Now Jones doesn’t have to become this big ol’ brut. That would take away his quickness. With those broad shoulders, Jones could put on at least 15 to 20 more pounds.

If Alade Aminu (44) can finish at the rim with force like this for the Erie BayHawks, now they have a legit inside presence in the paint.

After watching Tuesday night’s practice at East High, this is what I’ve noticed about some of the new guys in training camp for the Erie BayHawks.

The team must cut one more to get its roster down to 12 by 5 p.m. Wednesday. The BayHawks have a noon practice at LECOM Health and Wellness Center.

Ivan Harris is safe from getting cut Wednesday. Who else in Erie's training camp is secure as a blanket?

The Erie BayHawks must make one more cut to get their roster down to 12 before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The way I see it, six spots are already secure, I think.

Here’s a look at the remaining five players¬† that are in training camp for the Erie BayHawks that includes Georgia Tech big man Alade Aminu, who the D-League got in a draft day trade with Fort Wayne.

Check out a previous post on a look at guards Rod Wilmont, Donell Taylor, Ryan Troutman, Cedric Jackson and center John Bryant and continually check back here for training camp updates.

If you followed the Erie BayHawks last season, you know Ivan Harris, Jackie Manuel, Jarvis Gunter and Oliver Lafayette.

If you followed them really closely, you know Raheem Moss from training camp. He was the last player cut before the regular season opener.

If you follow area college basketball, you know Gannon center Kyle Goldcamp and Edinboro guard Joe Jones, who is from Erie.

So those seven guys need no major introduction.

The remaining 10 in training camp for the BayHawks?

They’re a different story. Let’s a take a look at them.
