CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The NBPA Top 100 Camp, which was held on University of Virginia's campus, featured a number of top prospects from all over the country. During the four-day camp, many players impressed us, but here is a look at who really stood out:
Andrew Harrison (Richmond, Texas/Travis)
2013, PG, 6-foot-5, 210 pounds
As the nation's best point guard, he plays every game with a bull's-eye on his back. He has excellent size for the position, uses good change of pace with the ball, and has a second gear to blow by defenders. When he gets in the lane, he scores or makes the correct pass and you never see him panic. If doubled-teamed, he will pass it or create a foul.
(Round Rock, Texas/Vermont Academy)
2013, PF, 6-9, 265 pounds
He is a big, dominating force on the blocks who can score on post feeds and rebound with the best of them. We like the way he stays in the lane and owns his area. Plus, his face-up game is effective from the baseline short corner and high-post area, but he needs to run the court better to really kick it up a notch.
Anthony Barber (Hampton, Va./Hampton)
2013, PG, 6-2, 165 pounds
He can take an outlet pass and beat everyone down the floor. When he puts on the brakes, he is so quick and elusive with his dribble. He creates for himself and others very well off the bounce and has a knack of getting to the rim at will. He is also a solid 3-point shooter with time and space. Alabama and Kansas lead the way for his services, and he will visit Alabama unofficially right after the conclusion of camp. For more on Barber, check out Reggie Rankin's blog.
Kevon Looney (Milwaukee, Wis./Hamilton)
2014, SF, 6-7, 185 pounds
He's a lanky small forward whose versatility is his calling card. In the open floor, he has the instincts and physical tools to be a playmaker. But when the game slows down, that's when you can really appreciate his skills, savvy and swagger. His ability to hit midrange shots off the catch or bounce is impressive. When he grabs a defensive rebound, he has an uncanny ability to pass ahead or push and go coast to coast. He will also utilize the shot fake to set up his defender for the drive, but is willing to kick it out or drop it off for a better look. He plays fast, but he is able to process the information and value each possession. That’s maturity.
Cliff Alexander (Chicago/Curie)
2014, PF/C, 6-8, 225 pounds
He is a big, strong and powerful player who tries to dunk everything! He is an athletic post player who never strays too far from the paint. Alexander is also a strong rebounder and a solid shot-blocker who has good hands and feet. He is a definite top-10 player in a loaded 2014 class, but should also be a dominant college All-American as long as he stays on his current path. Michigan State, Illinois, Kentucky, DePaul, Indiana and Florida State, among others are in the mix.
Aquille Carr (Baltimore, Md./Patterson)
2013, PG, 5-7, 150 pounds
College: Seton Hall
Despite his size, Carr is a very impactful player who probably has the best vertical in the country! Anyone who can dunk at 5-7 is special. Carr is super quick and surprisingly strong. He is great at slashing to the basket and is a good finisher at and above the rim. Carr has also improved as a shooter, but is still streaky. He is almost impossible to stop in transition and will have an impact on college basketball once he gets to Seton Hall.
Players to watch
(Mouth of Wilson, VA./Oak Hill)
2013, SF, 6-6, 195 pounds
Williams has had a rough spring, but played very well here. While scoring meaningful points in a team fashion, he elevated his play this week. He impacts the game most when he's active, playing hard and limits his long jumpers. Williams is great in transition, very effective in a scrambled, up-tempo game and one of the better players in the country when he plays in attack mode. Georgetown, Louisville, South Carolina, Kentucky and Florida, among others are in the mix.
(Hartford, Conn./Northwest Catholic)
2013, SF, 6-8, 220 pounds
Iverson is one of the most talented players in the 2013 class. He may not play hard all the time or make the most cerebral plays all the time, but his talent has to be respected. Outside of Jabari Parker (Chicago/Simeon) he was probably the best pro prospect at the camp. At his size, Iverson can play all three perimeter positions. He can create offense for himself and others. If he can stay consistent and increase his effort a little, he could easily be ranked one of the top 10 players in the class. He is considering UConn, Georgetown, Louisville, Villanova, Providence, Oklahoma State, Seton Hall, Florida and Pitt, among others.
Emmanuel Mudiay (Arlington, Texas/Grace Prep)
2014, PG, 6-3, 190 pounds
Mudiay is a scoring point guard with great size. He is a good scorer with a streaky shot, but he can easily get in the lane off the bounce with his quickness and excellent handle. Mudiay is a solid and creative passer who seems to have a solid basketball IQ as long as he stays in team mode. Overall, he is one of the best talents in the country. Arizona, North Carolina, Louisville, Kansas, Texas, Baylor and Kentucky, among others are in the mix.
Rashad Vaughn (Minneapolis, Minn./Cooper)
2014, SG, 6-6, 200 pounds
He is an athletic wing who has really improved as an outside shooter. He has solid range to 20 feet and has improved his total game over the last year. Vaughn has a solid body and is a strong slasher to the basket going right. He should be a quick riser in the national rankings, as he is starting to realize his vast potential. He's considering Minnesota, Arizona State, Baylor, Colorado, Michigan State, Georgetown, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Iowa State and others.
Daniel Hamilton (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco)
2014, SG, 6-5, 175 pounds
The brother of current pro Jordan Hamilton, Daniel has a chance to be better! He is a long wing who can play shooting guard or small forward. He is a very good shooter with range to 22 feet, has improved off the dribble, and is now a solid slasher to the basket. As Hamilton gets stronger, he will continue to improve his stock. Texas, Oklahoma State, USC, Kansas and Baylor, among others are already after him.
