Josh Daniel
Here is the remainder of the players that stood out at the Hoop Group Elite Camp on our second and final trip on Tuesday.  All in all, it was a good first trip to the Elite Camp's new location at Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Josh Daniel (2010, 6-7 SF/PF)
Josh is a talented combo forward who made some plays.  The lefty worked around the goal and converted several times on putbacks.  He likes to use the glass to finish.  He possesses good hands and quick motion.  Josh rebounded the ball well.  He threw a long outlet pass to start the break.  He's comfortable handling the ball a little bit too.  Josh put forth a fine effort for his squad.

Aquil Younger (2011, 6-1 PG)
This small, but speedy guard was quite impressive.  Aquil is at his best when on the attack.  He's a quick change of direction ball handler.  He frequently used his speed to draw fouls.  He was quiet from the perimeter and didn't setup his teammates much.  Aquil put together a nice game though.

Frank Mitchell (2010, 6-5 SF/PF)
Frank is an active and skilled forward.  He just always seems to be in position to make plays.  He moves well without the ball and finished or drew fouls after several cuts to the basket.  He followed his own miss on the interior and scored on another putback as well.  He had a nice spin move and left handed hook in the low block.  Defensively, Frank picked up a pair of steals.  He found an open teammate with a solid pass too.

Raphael Akepejori (2010, 6-9 PF/C)
Raphael was among the most impressive big men at the camp.  He can face up or play with his back to the basket.  He combines strength and athletic ability.  He seals very well down low and drew quite a few fouls when he touched the ball.  Raphael does need to improve his free throw shooting.  He drew one of his fouls after driving from the perimeter.  He rebounded well throughout the contest and also blocked a shot.  It was a fine day for Raphael, as he made the trek from Kansas.  

Ishaq Pitt (2010, 6-3 PG/SG)
Ishaq is a talented wing player.  He's very unselfish and displayed this with pass after pass.  He can attack in either direction off the dribble and possesses good size for his position.  He drew a foul while penetrating.  Ishaq also knocked down a fall away jumper.

Jamel Flash (2010, 6-8 C)
Jamel is a lanky big who is still developing.  He converted on several putback attempts on the interior.  He hit on an outside jumper too.  He's most comfortable facing the basket.  Jamel would greatly benefit by adding more of a back to the basket game.  He could also help himself out by adding bulk to his skinny frame.

Theo Boyomo (2010, 6-8 PF)
This big man possesses good size and he uses that to his advantage.  Theo scored several times on the interior, including a nice half hook shot after moving the defender out of the way in the low block.  He was at his best when clearing rebounds on the defensive end.  Theo also hit a deep face up jumper and showed some ability to attack off the dribble.  He was one of the more talented players at the event.

Kelvin Amayo (2010, 6-2 PG/SG)
Kelvin is an athletic guard who played well.  He ran the floor and scored on the break.  From the outside, he hit on a tough fall away jumper.  He did struggle to consistently hit from the perimeter.  Kelvin dished off the rock for an assist too.

Tafari Whittingham (2012, 6-6 SF)
Tafari is a good sized wing player.  He's a long strider who can get to the hoop quickly.  He also displayed a nice crossover move.  He banked in a shot after picking up a loose ball.  Tafari finished after a cut too.  He flashed his athletic ability with a transition slam dunk too.  This young player has a bright future ahead of him.

Durand Johnson (2010, 6-5 SG/SF)
Durand didn't have a big game, but he managed to string together a few plays.  His most impressive play was a highly difficult deep turnaround jumper.  He hit a three pointer from the outside too.  Durand also finished after a fine pass from a teammate and blocked a shot.

Dondre Whitmore (2010, 5-9 PG)
This little lead guard played well.  Dondre hit from the outside on a pair of three pointers.  He uses his quickness and can get wherever he wants.  He banked in several shots, including a floater and a highly difficult runner.  Dondre made several nice passes too.  It's the best we've seen him play this spring or summer.  When he gets it going, Dondre is a good point guard.   

Louis Montes (2010, 6-4 SF)
Louis is a solidly built forward.  The slasher loves to go at the rim and finish.  He uses his body well.  He ran the floor and scored in transition.  Louis is also a good leaper as he showed when he blocked a shot.  His jumper could improve and he actually has the ability to add even more muscle to his frame.  A year of prep school should really help out his game.

Daniel Stewart (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
Daniel had an up and down game.  He worked often around the goal.  He scored on a couple putbacks and drew some fouls.  He needs to improve from the line.  Daniel always runs the floor well and did so on this day.  He converted on several dunks, including an alley oop.  Another dunk came after attacking off the dribble.  Daniel attempted to do that several times and often tried too hard to force the issue.  He also was inconsistent finishing around the rim.  His athleticism and effort are hard to ignore though.  

Khalid Lewis-El (2011, 6-2 SG)
Khalid made a few plays.  He banked in a runner in the lane.  He also had a nice drive and kick out to a teammate.

Tyler Harris (2011, 6-6 SF)
The brother of talented 2010 prospect Tobias Harris, Tyler is a solid player in his own right.  The lanky lefty isn't as big as his brother and his game isn't as polished.  He runs the floor well and scored in transition.  He was quiet from the perimeter.  Tyler also needs to get stronger.  He has a way to go in his development, but he has potential.

Joel Brokenbrough (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
Joel is a talented wing player.  Blessed with good size, he also can create off the dribble.  He can attack in either direction.  He does a good job of using fakes.  It worked once on a drive and foul.  Later, he froze a big man before converting on a reverse lay-up.  Joel hit a pull up jumper, but was inconsistent from the outside.  He used his size to rip down quite a few rebounds too.  He put together a nice game.  

Mark Bevacqua (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
Mark made most of his impact by crashing the boards.  He scored on several putbacks and rebounded on the defensive end too.  His touches on the offensive end were limited, so he had to make his own opportunities.

Alex Bates (2010, 6-8 PF/C)
This left handed forward was solid.  On the inside, he buried a hook shot and scored on a follow up.  Alex moves well and scored in transition a few times.  He rebounded well on both ends of the floor.  It was a decent outing for him.

Naofall Folahan (2010, 6-10 PF/C)
Big and athletic, Naofall has all the potential to be a big time player.  On this day, most of his impact was felt with his leaping ability.  He threw down several high flying alley oop dunks.  Naofall plucked rebound after rebound out of the air too.  The rest of his game is still developing, but he has a lot of upside.

Marco Porcher-Jiminez (2010, 6-3 SG)
Marco is a big wing player who can handle the rock.  The lefty hit a couple runners in the lane.  He looked to get other involved too as he made several nice passes.  Marco had an alley oop pass and showed his athletic ability with an alley oop of his own.  He nailed a three pointer too.  Overall, it was a strong game for this guard.  

Kareem Thomas (2010, 5-11 PG)
Kareem is a quick ball handling lead guard who can make plays.  He did a fine job of attacking with either hand.  He hit a runner in the lane and banked in another shot after a drive.  Kareem is unselfish and looked to distribute the ball.  He also hit a couple jumpers, including a deep pull up shot just inside the arc.  It was a productive outing for this NYC guard.
