Future150 national camp wrap-up

Atlanta, GA- The Future 150 National High School camp tipped off last Saturday morning and players from 12 different states were in attendance. Over 100 players were invited from six regional Future 150 camps across the country. More than 40 high major prospects were in attendance along with members of the Rivals150.
The festivities started with the combine testing where the players were tested on straight line speed, tri-cone slide shuttle, change of direction shuttle and no step vertical leap. The camp continued with 5-on-5 play and a top 40 and top 20 All-Star games on Sunday afternoon as the camp came to a close.
(2012) Players
Jarnell Stokes- (Central H.S.- Memphis, TN) the 6-foot-8 inch, 235 pound power forward may have been the top prospect at the camp. As a player who can play with his back to the basket and can turn and face, Stokes is the complete package. He plays above the rim when attacking the basket and rebounding the ball. Perhaps the most impressive attribute he has is his ability to put the ball on the floor. He has the ability to finish with contact which usually results into the 3 pt play. Stokes holds offers from Ole Miss, Memphis, Miss St., Oregon St. and Tennessee.
Devonta Pollard-(Kemper County H.S.-Meridian, MS) the 6-foot-7 inch, 185 pound power forward is a long, rangy and athletic prospect that can score with either hand around the basket.

Tony Parker (Miller Grove H.S.- Miller Grove, GA) the 6-foot-8 inch, 245 pound center has a big body and showed his ability to finish. He proved to be a good rebounder on both ends of the floor.

Stramagila is receiving interest from UAB, Arkansas, Oregon St. and Samford.
Shaquille Goodwin (SW Dekalb H.S., Dekalb, GA)- the 6-foot-8 inch 210 pound power forward scored well around the block but also stepped out and knocked down a few jumpers from 15 and 20 feet. He has the ability to handle the ball in transition and sees the floor. For a player his size, Goodwin runs well and can finish at the rim with contact. A very good looking prospect Goodwin is a likely high major prospect.

Dietrick Mostella-(Austin H.S.-Decatur, AL) the 6-foot-2 inch 165 pound point guard is a tall rangy athlete. His strength is getting to the basket off penetration. He has a good feel for the game and great body control when driving to the basket. With an improving long range jumper, the sky is the limit. Mostella is a future high major prospect.
