Charlottesville, Virginia – The 2019 NBA Top 100 Camp began last week at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and some of the best prospects from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 class were set to compete against one another for a few days. College coaches and NBA personnel were allowed to attend for a couple days to scout and spectate the talent on the floor. Some prospects stood out more than others, here we let you know which prospects held their name high.
2020 SG Moses Moody of Brad Beal Elite (MO) – The 6-foot-5 shooting guard Moses Moody has been so impressive since the ending of his junior campaign at powerhouse Montverde Academy (FL). He is a 3-and-D type of guard who makes impacts on both ends of the floor. More known as a spot up shooter on the wings, Moses proved once again he is capable of doing more than just that. Moody is always locked in mentally and it shows when competing. He made shots from the mid-range to the perimeter, took his opponent off the dribble attacking the rim, and was able to finish through traffic and draw contact.
2020 C Day’Ron Sharpe of Garner Road (NC) – North Carolina commit Day’Ron Sharpe was arguably the best big man throughout the entire camp. The 6-foot-9 center basically dominated in each and in every one of his matchups. Sharpe is a rebounding machine and runs the floor extremely well. His presence in the paint is stellar and he plays with great enery on both ends. Day’Ron holds that competitve nature that will help him on the next level. I am pretty sure he has a starting position waiting for him in a couple years in Chapel Hill and will fit right in with Roy William’s system.
2020 PG Dwon Odom of Atlanta Celtics (GA) – The 6-foot-2 point guard Dwon Odom made his name known since the beginning of the camp on Tuesday night. The Xavier commit has done what he does well on a consistent basis and thats being an aggressive driver. Dwon was determined to make his way to the basket on every possession and successed. He is a downhill type of player with gifted athleticism and great body control when finishing in traffic. Dwon also did more than just scoring the basketball by creating plays for other and dishing out a few assists in each game.
2020 C Mady Sissoko of Vegas Elite (NV) – Another big man prospect that made his name known throughout the week in Virginia was Mady Sissoko. Normally bigs do not standout or do as well at camp settings like the NBA Top 100 Camp, but Sissoko made his presence known from start to finish. The 6-foot-9 energizer bunny played with an extremeley high motor and was consistent all week with his energy. Mady showed he can defend multiple positions, protect the rim defensively, and have great hands when catching lobs or trick passes from his guards. His powerful finishers at the rim set the tone for most of the week and after starring at the Pangos All American Camp in California just a few weeks ago, Sissoko bought that momentum to Charlottesville.
2020 PG RJ Davis of New York Renaissance (NY) – After last week’s performance in Charlottesville, Virginia, I believe now that R.J. Davis is the most underrated nationally known prospect in his class. The 6-foot-1 point guard led his squad to the camp championship and was selected on the all camp team. He is a dynamic scorer and just has a knack for putting the ball in the basket at the point guard position. Davis holds elite quickness, a shifty playmaker who can knock down shots, and is able to draw and/or take contact when attacking the rim. He is a certified “bucket-getter” is one of the best scorers in the 2020 class.
2020 F Jaemyn Brakefield of Phenom University (WI) – One of the most consistent prospects at the 2019 NBA Top 100 Camp this year was without a doubt Jaemyn Brakefield. Brakefield does not receive enough credit on his consistent play on the floor in every game. He is a 6-foot-9 forward with a solid handle with the ball and could be considered a point forward in some possessions. He holds long arms and legs and that helps him get to the rack with one or two dribbles. Jaemyn is one of the best on-ball defenders in his class and is a fantastic finisher at the rim. He holds that competitve nature and it showed throughout the entire camp last week at the University of Virginia.
2021 PG Devin Askew of Team WhyNot (CA) – Devin Askew had a fantastic performance last week in Charlottesville. The 6-foot-3 point guard was selected on the all camp team while leading his squad to a camp championship title. Devin showed his scoring abilities along with his overall point guard skills by creating opportunities for his teammates. He is a reliable three-point shooter and hit multiple shots from beyond the arc and even in the mid-range areas. Askew’s pull up game is elite and he holds great size and body frame at his position. He is certainly one of the best point guards, if not the best, in the 2021 class.
2020 SG Jabri Abdur-Rahim of NJ Playaz Club (NJ) – Jabri Abdur-Rahim will certainly be one of the 2020 prospects to climb up the rankings once this AAU season is fully over with. His ability to score the ball is elite and he is one of the best pure scorers in the class. Jabri showed his skill set all week at the University of Virginia and did what he does best. He holds elite quickness, able to shift gears in the open floor at a high level , and has a solid pull jumper where he can hit jumpers from multiple positions. Abdur-Rahim is an all level scorer and has been proving all spring, summer long that he belongs a the top of rankings with the best of them. Jabri averaged 25.2 points per game during the Nike EYBL season, which ranked 5th.
