USA Basketball Camp: Top big men
MORE USA: Best backcourt | Bamba shines | Jackson lives up to billing
Recruiting wrap: Bamba has taken recent unofficial visits to Duke, St. John's and Wake Forest. Kentucky, Connecticut, Kansas, Maryland, Villanova and many more have offered and he won't be cutting his list for a while.
Performance: Bamba entered camp as the No. 5 player in his class based mostly on potential. At USA, he played like a top-five player. He dominated as a shot blocker, ran the floor like a guard and played with great energy. He showed very good touch around the basket and has a crazy 7-foot-8 wingspan to go with his 6-foot-11 size.
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG
Recruiting wrap: Committed to Florida State.
Performance: Measuring in at just under 6-foot-10, 2016's No. 14 player is a combo forward who could ultimately be a supersized wing player. He struggled early adjusting to the mountain air and asthma, but once he got rolling he did it all. He shot the three, attacked with athleticism and ran the floor. He is pencil thin at 200 pounds but has huge upside.
DeSoto (Texas) High
Recruiting wrap: Has taken visits to Alabama, Duke and Kentucky, and has Kansas this weekend. Bolden has a visit set for Oklahoma but said he could decide before that visit. The Blue Devils and Wildcats are currently the perceived leaders.
Performance: The nation's No. 16 player in the class of 2016, Bolden used every bit of his 6-foot-10 and 250-pound frame around the rim. He played physically, was tough on the glass and showed enough touch to make jump hooks with either hand. He isn't a true high flyer, but he's quick off the floor and has great length (7-foot-4 wingspan).
Austin (Texas) St. Stephens
Recruiting wrap: Has final eight of Houston, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Texas. He hasn't set any visits.
Performance: The No. 20 player in 2016, Allen used his tremendous length (7-foot-4 wingspan), athleticism and touch to make an impact. There's never been a question about his talent, just his motor. He played hard all weekend.
Houston (Texas) Victory Prep (2017)
Recruiting wrap: Not in any hurry to decide with offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Texas, Texas A&M and many more.
Performance: Initially pegged as a small forward prospect, Vanderbilt showed again that he's more comfortable as a combo forward or quick and athletic power forward. He was very active on the glass and in transition, and showed great passing skill along with the ability to defend multiple positions.
Springfield (Mass.) Macduffie School
Recruiting wrap: Committed to Villanova.
Performance: Spellman showed that he has the offensive skill to play facing the basket and as a power forward with skill. However, he's best suited to be a center defensively. He rebounded and showed some surprising bounce. Reshaping his 287-pound frame will be a college priority.
Pelham (Ala.) High (2017)
Recruiting wrap: Major target for in-state programs Auburn and Alabama with Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt involved.
Performance: In past viewings, Reese has wanted to roam the perimeter and shoot jumpers more than mix it up on the interior. In Colorado Springs, though, the No. 52 player in 2017 made a big effort to hit the offensive glass and scrap in the paint, and he had positive results because of it.
