CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.- Vanderbilt commitment John Jenkins is making a strong statement at the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp. He finished the first day as the second leading scorer in the camp and continued his hot shooting during the third session of the camp.
Jenkins is establishing himself as one of the elite shooters in the 2009 class. In the third session he dropped multiple contested threes off the catch and created scoring opportunities putting the ball on the floor going left. With a game based more on precision than athleticism, there is a limit to the plays that Jenkins can make, but there is no doubt that he will be a scorer in the SEC.
Glenn Bryant- Quite opposite of Jenkins, Bryant's game is based more on athleticism and less on precision. On Thursday he was aggressive and on top of his game, blocking shots, crashing the boards and finishing with authority around the rim.
Jeremy Tyler- After a tough second session, Tyler came to life in the third session. Wendell Lewis, who is having a solid camp as one of the top rebounders, just couldn't handle Tyler's agility in the low post. When things are going well for Tyler and he has a positive attitude, he is one of the best post prospects regardless of class. When things don't go well, Tyler is quick to implode and become ineffective with his play.
Tristan Thompson- The 2010 Texas commitment continues to make plays. He blocked a number of shots, rebounded well and continues to make plays off the dribble.
Myck Kabongo- Put his name down as one of the top point guards in the 2011 class. His play has been both solid and inspired.
Josh Selby- Speaking of top guards, Selby has established himself in the past week as one of the best guards in the 2010 class. He has been one of the top overall performers through the first three sessions of the camp.
Nate Lubick- The 2010 big man continues to impress with his energized play, skilled game and surprising bounce off the floor.
Darius Morris has some new schools in pursuit of him. In the wake of Abdul Gaddy's decommitment from Arizona, the Wildcats are coming on strong according to Morris. He also noted that Stanford has a scholarship for him if he is accepted into school. Morris recently visited the campus and met with new head coach Johnny Dawkins. Marquette has extended an offer as well.
