Here is more of the action from the Hoop Group Elite Camp in Reading, Pennsylvania.  This is the remainder of the top players that Recruit Recon encountered during Thursday's action.

Shawn Valentine (2011, 6-6 SF/PF)
Shawn put together an excellent game.  The wing shot the ball very well.  He really loves the mid range game and hit several shots from that area, including some of the pull up variety.  Shawn's shot is mechanical though and that did lead to a bad miss on one occasion.  He still hit at a high rate.  He didn't show range beyond the mid range area though.  Shawn can handle the ball too.  He was fouled on a runner on one play.  He possesses good hands and used those to pull down a couple rebounds.  It was a very strong day for Shawn.

Kyle Wise (2010, 5-9 PG)
Kyle made a few plays in this game.  The small point guard possesses good quickness.  From the perimeter, he hit a jumper.  He made several nice passes from his lead guard spot.  Kyle was aggressive defensively and picked up a pair of steals.  He didn't score a lot, but still produced.

Christian MacAuley (2011, 6-7 PF)
Christian had a fine game.  He was very active on the interior.  He had a few athletic dunks and converted on a putback.  He ran the floor well and scored most of his points in transition.  Christian has a good set of hands.  He could get stronger and was a bit inconsistent finishing in this contest, but he played well.

Jarelle Reischel (2011, 6-5 SG/SF)
This lanky wing had a solid outing.  Jarelle was at his best on the attack.  He has a smooth handle and finishes well.  He had a nice drive and scoop finish.  He proved to be unselfish as he dished off several nice passes.  Jarelle banked a shot on the inside too.  He was quiet from the perimeter though.

Edson Avila (2011, 6-8 PF/C)
Edson proved to be a decent post player.  He's quick around the rim and had an impressive one handed tip in.  Edson can handle the ball and he drew a foul after driving on one occasion.  He did struggle to finish consistently though.  He also could benefit by adding strength.

Jaylen Beckham (2012, 6-0 PG)
Jaylen showed himself to be an unselfish lead guard.  He made several good passes throughout the game and really looked to get his teammates involved.  He is a quick change of direction ball handler who can get into the lane.  Jaylen was quiet from the perimeter.  He played a fine game though.

Ishaq Pitt (2010, 6-3 PG/SG)
Ishaq has played well this month.  This game was no exception.  He's not the fastest ball handler, but instead is very steady.  Ishaq is also strong and can absorb contact.  He finished with a foul from another big body player on one occasion.  He has a good crossover move.  Ishaq played aggressive on the defensive end.  He could move a bit quicker and had some trouble keeping Tony Chennault in front of him.  He's not the first or last player with that problem though.  Ishaq also needs to improve his jumper.  Nevertheless, he's a very talented player.

Will Wise (2011, 6-7 PF)
This big man had a good game on the boards.  Will rebounded very well at both ends of the court.  He drew a foul after an offensive rebound.  He also ran the floor and scored on the break, although he didn't score much.  Will missed a deep jumper among his few offensive attempts.

Deshon Minnis (2010, 6-2 PG)
Deshon had a solid game.  As usual, he was at his best when attacking.  He looked for every opportunity to push the ball.  He scored often on the break.  Deshon had a nice drive and dish play.  He hit a deep three pointer at the buzzer of one period, but struggled with his jumper at other times.  Deshon played well on this day.

Anali Okoloji (2010, 6-7 SF)
This big wing had a good game from the outside.  Anali hit a pair of three pointers and a pull up mid range jumper.  He has a good handle and can attack too.  He finished after a nice give and go play.  Anali had a nice game.  

Takiudeen Abdur-Raheem (2010, 6-3 SG)
Takiudeen was very efficient in this contest.  He opened with a pull up mid range jumper.  He hit another pull up shot after first going left.  Takiudeen is a good ball handler with nice size.  He was active around the rim too.  He scored on a putback and a tip in.  He grabbed a couple rebounds too.  It was a fine day for Takiudeen.

Kyheim Hall (2010, 6-3 PG/SG)
This guard had a solid outing.  He's a very sound and compact dribbler.  Kyheim has good hands and loves to attack.  He had a few nice stop and go moves and used the spin move quite often as well.  He was somewhat inconsistent finishing however.  Kyheim grabbed a few rebounds, but was quiet from the outside once again.  He's definitely had a nice July though.

Ryan Arcidiacono (2012, 6-2 SG)
This skilled youngster made some plays.  Ryan was at his best on the break.  He scored several times in transition, including a scoop finish.  He's a good ball handler and typically a skilled passer.  Ryan usually can shoot the ball pretty well, but he struggled to convert on this day.

Lamin Fulton (2011, 5-9 PG)
Lamin was at his best setting up his teammates.  He had several fine passes, including one after driving left.  He finished in transition with a foul.  Lamin was quiet from the perimeter though and he didn't utilize his quickness as much as he has in the past.
