Without a spring live period this year, July has been a busy month.  The live period concluded with another session of the Hoop Group Elite Camp in Reading, Pennsylvania.  Recruit Recon took in the action on Thursday as the meat of the summer season is now over.  Here is a look at the top players that we saw during Thursday's session.

Dave Coley (2010, 6-2 SG)
Dave was quiet earlier in the month at the Reebok All American Camp, but he was outstanding on this day.  He was the top performer of the day.  Dave is a quick ball handler who is silky smooth.  He changes directions in a hurry and often uses hesitation dribbling.  He's a good finisher who loves to run the floor.  He had several scoop shots and also hit a runner in the lane.  Dave showed to be a good shooter as well.  He nailed three shots from beyond the arc.  The bouncy guard can just score and he did that with ease on this day.

Kareem Canty (2011, 5-11 PG)
This point guard had a very good outing.  Kareem just knows how to score.  He has a very good jumper and he had several of the pull up variety.  Two of those came from beyond the arc and another just inside of it.  He can handle the ball as well and finished after driving left on one play.  Kareem hit a runner in the lane too.  He played well when teamed up with Dave Coley.

Jordan Kolesar (2010, 6-8 PF)
Jordan played well.  The big man has a good set of hands and moves well.  He scored on a nice catch and finish of a pass over the top of a defender.  Jordan had a reverse as well.  He has a solid body, but could get even stronger.

Montana Mayfield (2011, 5-10 PG)
Montana is a steady young point guard.  The lefty has a nice stroke and he used that to hit a pair of pull up jumpers.  He's a good ball handler too and does a fine job of running the offense.

Justin Harris (2011, 6-6 PF)
This big bodied forward has a nice game.  Justin had a pretty duck under move and was fouled.  He converted from the line after it.  He also made several good passes, including one from the post.  He pulled down a couple rebounds too.

Tavon Perry (2010, 6-8 PF/C)
Tavon is a big man who played very well around the rim.  He finished several times with fouls.  He converted on another play after a good feed.  Tavon possesses a good set of hands and can handle the ball a little too.  He can drive to the hoop in short space.  He rebounded well on both ends.  Tavon was one of the most impressive big men at the event.

Scott Slade (2011, 6-5 SF)
This wing made some plays.  Scott hit a pair of jumpers.  He flashed some athletic ability on a dunk.  On the defensive end, he partially blocked a shot too.

Zaid Hearst (2011, 6-4 SG)
This speedy guard was solid.  Zaid had a fine crossover move to beat his man and then he dished off a good pass.  His pull up jumper was working as he nailed a pair of those type of shots.  He possesses as smooth stroke on his jumper.  Zaid continues to play well this summer.

Amir Tarif (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
Amir is a talented combo forward.  Around the rim, he putback his own miss and was fouled on the play.  He had another quick follow up bucket too.  He can put the ball on the floor as well.  Amir hit a three pointer from the outside.  He was a little inconsistent finishing, but still played well.

Jonathan Graham (2010, 6-8 205 PF)
Although he didn't have a very productive game, Jonathan certainly showed an intriguing skill set.  He handles the ball very well for a big man.  An example of this was a play where he pulled down the rebound, took it the length of the court, then dished it off before getting the ball back to finish.  Jonathan does need to finish better around the rim.  He needs to get stronger and really struggled when he encountered contact.  He definitely has some skills.

Rashawn Cunningham (2011, 5-10 PG)
Rashawn is a very quick change of direction ball handler.  He can attack with either hand.  He converted on a pair of scoop shots, including one after being fouled.  Rashawn was most effective when attacking.  He was quiet from the perimeter.

Raheem Harvey (2011, 6-8 PF/C)
This young big man was very impressive.  Raheem not only held his own, but outplayed fellow talented forward Jonathan Graham.  On the defensive end, he blocked Jonathan several times.  The lefty is a good post defender.  On the offensive end, Raheem showed a nice skill set as well.  He has good hands and quick feet and frequently works in the low block.  On the interior, he finished well throughout the game, including a hook shot.  He followed his own miss on one occasion.  Raheem rebounded well at both ends.  He could get stronger.  He is very talented though and played better than any big man throughout the day.

Earl Brown (2011, 6-4 SG)
Earl had a fine all around game.  He's a guard who possesses good size.  He putback his own miss on the inside.  He ran the floor and was fouled on the break.  Earl has a solid handle and he made a nice pass after attacking on one play.  He finished with a scoop shot later on.  He blocked a shot as well.  Earl had a productive day.

Joel Wright (2010, 6-5 SG/SF) committed to Fordham
Joel didn't play as well as he has of late, but he was solid.  He scored on a scoop shot on the break.  He ran the floor well and is quick off the dribble.  Joel did struggle to finish consistently though.
