NBA Players Camp: Session five
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.- Trent Lockett has been solid throughout the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp, and he was on top of his game during session five.
Lockett might not be the talent that James Harden is but look for the 6-foot-5 shooting guard step into the role that Harden plays for Arizona State. Lockett plays a strong and composed game and also has a surprising burst of athleticism. Simply put, when the ball is in his hands good things are going to happen.
Jamal Coombs- The Connecticut commitment has been another solid performer throughout the camp. In the top ten scorers along with Lockett, Coombs has also rebounded the ball and shown a feel for passing the basketball.
Durand Scott- The energetic wing was in attack mode during session five. A streaky shooter, Scott nailed three three-pointers in a row during one stretch of the game.
Jon Hood- The Kentucky commitment has now put together three sessions where he has scored the basketball. A very talented offensive player, Hood needs to bring his defense closer to where his offense is.
Jason Morris- The 2010 prospect found his stride during session five. His quick release jumper was on, and he had one of the more authoritative attacks on the basket with a transition dunk in traffic.
Richard Howell- Although he isn't the most athletic big man, Howell competes with energy and strength and generally gets positive results. Around the basket he is at his best, but he also has the skills to make positive plays away from the basket as long as he stays under control.
John Jenkins- The Vanderbilt commitment continues to nail shots, but he also stepped up as a rebounder with the absence of a couple of his injured big men.
Tristan Thompson- The 2010 Texas commitment continued his habit of making aggressive hustle plays on both ends of the court.
Garrick Sherman- The Michigan State commitment continues to impress with his skilled and also aggressive play. At times he dominated the paint during session five play.
Jamil Wilson rejected speculation that a commitment to Duke could occur in the near future.
"The only thing that is true is that growing up Duke was a dream school for me because Grant Hill was my favorite player," said Wilson. "Duke is in the running just like all the other schools."
Wilson also maintained that his decision day will remain March 9, which is the birthday of his deceased mother.
Aaric Murray, who impressed at the camp before suffering an ankle injury, is down to Temple, Villanova, St. Joseph's and West Virginia. All four schools have offered.
Dante Taylor lists Pittsburgh, Maryland, Georgetown (no offer), Florida, Villanova, West Virginia, Connecticut, Memphis (no offer), Kansas (no offer) and Virginia Tech. Taylor has had a strong showing in Charlottesville.
Josh Selby lists Tennessee (offer), Texas, Louisville (offer), Florida, Memphis, UCLA, Virginia and Oklahoma.
Travis McKie claims offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Boston College along with interest from North Carolina, Wake Forest, Clemson, Texas, Florida and Memphis.
Jason Morris has a long school list with Georgetown, Duke, Villanova and Texas at the top of the list.
