The Philadelphia Top 100 Camp was held at La Salle University on Thursday evening.  Here are some of the players that stood out.

ImageJarrett Mann - Middletown, DE (2008 6-4 SG/SF)
When I first saw Jarrett in the spring, he was playing with a bunch of talented upperclassmen.  He was putting up good numbers, but I didn’t notice him that much and was at a loss to explain why.  After seeing him a lot more over the spring and summer, it has become apparent how I missed him.  He doesn’t make a lot of big time plays and gets most of his points by running the floor and scoring in transition as well as getting to the line.  Jarrett did much of those same things on this evening.  He has the size and athletic ability to be a high level player, but his perimeter skills aren’t all there at this point.  He needs to show he can knock down the jumper or consistently beat people of the dribble in the half court offense.  He is a very good player, but not Top 50 nationally like some people have rated him at.  I had originally said Delaware was wasting their time recruiting, but I don’t think it is too much of a reach.  Of course he has two years still remaining to develop into an elite player.

Terrance Roderick - Northeast Prep, PA (2007 6-5 SF)
Terrance was among the most talented players at this camp.  He had a solid overall game. As usual, he was at the top of his game when it came to distributing the ball.  He also grabbed a pile of rebounds.  Terrance was able to add some transition points as well.  He didn't hit many perimeter shots when I watched him.

Chauncey Gilliam - LEAP Academy. NJ (2007 6-5 SG)
It certainly pays to see a player more than once.  That is the case with Chauncey.  Last time I saw him, I dubbed him “not a great athlete.”  I couldn’t be more off as he was the best athlete in the building on this night.  The first time around he had me fooled because he had several dunk opportunities, but didn’t throw any of them down.  On this occasion, he was dunking all over the gym, including a beautiful windmill jam.  Chauncey is an explosive player in transition, but he could use some improved perimeter skills.  He can hit the jumper, but like a lot of high school players, he needs more consistency.  He is also a decent ball handler, but doesn’t consistently beat his man and struggles to use his right hand.  Right now, he’s definitely a mid major athlete, but kind of in between mid major and low major when it comes to his overall game.

Peter Milasinovic
– Rise Academy, PA (2007 6-8 SF/PF)
Pete is a prospect from Canada who is doing a prep year in the “City of Brotherly Love.”  He was one of the bigger players in the whole camp, but displayed more guard skills than post ability.  He is a very good shooter who can hit from anywhere on the floor.  He buried a tough three pointer off the dribble with a hand in his face.  His height will allow him to hit that shot time and time again.  Pete even played some point guard for his team.  He ran the offense fairly well, but he’s not a great passer or explosive off the dribble.  He is a solid ball handler for the high school level, but if he’s going to play on the wing in college he’ll need to improve in that area.  Pete has a nice set of skills and should fit in well during his prep year.

Jesse Morgan - Prep Charter, PA (2009 6-1 PG)
I first noticed Jesse in the middle of the summer.  Since then, I’ve seen him several times and he never disappoints.  He is quickly rising up the charts in his class.  Jesse was very impressive knocking down pull up jumpers on this evening.  He also did a great job of driving and finishing or dishing off to teammates.  He is a very quick ball handler.  He does tend to dribble the ball a bit high, but he dribbles so fast that it is difficult to steal the ball from him.  Jesse has really been coming around lately, and with Prep Charter’s national schedule, he could wind up with some recognition throughout the country by the end of the high school season.

Khalif Wyatt
– Academy of the New Church, PA (2009 6-2 PG)
This young player can just score.  He isn’t super quick, but he uses a ton of hesitation moves to beat the defenders.  Khalif has a very smooth shot that he can burry from all over the court.  He can break down the defense and score or pass, although he uses the former much more often.  Khalif should fit in nicely on the loaded Academy of the New Church squad.

Charles Aiken
– La Salle, PA (2010 6-6 PF)
Charles is a young forward with a lot of upside.  He is a lanky player who had the biggest impact on the boards.  He has good hands and is a decent ball handler.  He has a low release on his shot, but still can score around the basket.  Like most players his age and size, Charles is still a bit raw offensively.  He definitely has a lot of potential though and should improve as time goes on.

Rakeem Brookins
– Roman Catholic, PA (2010 5-10 PG)
This small young guard is quick with the ball in his hands.  Despite being a right handed player, he tends to favor his left hand when putting the ball on the floor.  Rakeem can finish well.  Although he played the point guard position, he didn’t show too much in terms of passing ability.  He appears to be a score first guard, which is no surprise at his age.  Rakeem probably won’t see much action on a loaded Roman Catholic team this year, but he has bright future ahead of him.

Henry Smith
- Neumann-Goretti, PA (2009 6-5 SF)
Henry had a solid, but not spectacular game.  He finished well and hit a few outside shots, including from out to three.  He does seem a bit slow and methodical on his jumper, but is still effective.

Travis Robinson - Penn Charter, PA (2010 6-4 SG/SF)
This rising freshman had a solid, but not spectacular camp.  He is one of best finishers you will see at such a young age.  He displayed some good dribbling skills, including a beautiful left handed move that few seniors could even make.  Travis struggled with his jumper.  He has a poor release on his set shot, but is much smoother when shooting off the dribble.  He is a very talented youngster who will continue to get better.

Tony Chenault
– Neumann-Goretti, PA (2010 6-2 PG/SG)
I’ve wanted to see this talented rising freshman for some time now.  While he doesn’t get your attention with eye popping plays, he is a very good player.  He’s a big guard who is very quick with the dribble and can get up the court in a hurry.  Tony is a good finisher and can also distribute the basketball.  He has a good crossover move and always seems under control.  Tony is definitely one of the top players in his class.

Will Adams – Imhotep Charter, PA (2009 6-3 SG)
I didn’t watch a lot Will’s games, but quite a few times when I turned my head he was making some nice hustle plays.  He threw home two decent jams as well.
