BALTIMORE, MD — Hoop Group always does a great job getting good talent from the Baltimore area for their top-100 camp, and this year was no different. Here we recap this event with a closer look at ten standouts.
Mt. St. Joe’s 2019 guard James Bishop scored with ease throughout the camp. The lefty, who will run the point on the UAA for Team Thrill, put the ball in the basket efficiently from all three levels.
6-foot-4 southpaw Cameron Etris was one of the most consistent shooters we saw on Sunday. The 2019 prospect out of St. John’s College High School moves well without the ball and has a quick release.
Springbrook 2019 guard Tim Hawkins should emerge as a key contributor next season. He has good length and a solid skill set.
Rajeir Jones worked hard throughout the camp. The 6-foot-3 class 2019 guard out of St. Frances, who won the BCL Def. POY award, showcased the ability to score it well from all over the court.
Judah Jordan demonstrated a strong skill set and impressive scoring prowess at the camp. The 6-foot-2 combo guard, who will feature for Team Thrill on the UAA, has good toughness and defensive potential.
6-foot-5 wing Ziggy Reid used his length and high motor to actively repel shots at the basket on Sunday. The 2019 prospect out of St. Paul’s also showed that he can knock down perimeter jumpers and finish through contact inside.
Will Thomas was one of the most versatile players in attendance at B’More Top-100. At close to 6-foot-6, he has the size to rebound out of his area, but he can also dribble, pass, and shoot. Did we mention he’s ambidextrous?
Pound-for-pound, there was probably no one stronger at this camp than Jordan Toles. The super athletic 2020 guard prospect out of St. Frances continues to show signs of improvement in all facets of the game.
Jarace Walker has a chance to be special. The rising freshman, who is slated to attend IMG Academy in the fall, showcased a great skill set to go along with impressive athleticism and defensive instincts.
Jamal West was one of the most impressive leapers at the camp. At about 6-foot-4, he plays like he’s at closer to 6-foot-7 or 6-foot-8. West is a versatile defender who moves his feet well.
