ARLINGTON, VA — The Hoop Group Exposure Tour made its annual stop at Marymount University on Sunday, where several players stood out among the crowd. Below we run down what we learned during our time in the gym.

2021 CLASS STANDS OUT

Zaakir Williamson

The main takeaway from this camp is that DMV basketball will be in good hands over the course of the next few years. Terrence ButlerWes Peterson and Zaakir Williamson were the three biggest standouts in the class. Three promising guard prospects, Chace Davis, Antoine Jacks, and Zion Russell, respectively made their mark.

UP AND COMING 2020’S MAKE NOISE

TJ Horton

TJ Horton, a 6-foot-4 wing who recently transferred from Mount Vernon to Paul VI, was one of the best players in attendance regardless of class. In fact, the 2020 class in this camp featured a handful of good college prospects at the wing position. James Berry, Landon Hawes, Quentin Southall, and Telryn Villa all fit the bill in that regard.

2019 SLEEPERS

Jorarei Bile

Jorarei Bile, a 6-foot-4 forward out of Oxon Hill, was one of the hardest working kids we saw at camp. His high school teammate, Payton Love, also worked very hard and stood out as a result. Jordan Mitchell, a shifty 5-foot-11 guard out of Bowie, was productive on both ends of the floor. Middleburg guard David Penney was one of the better on ball perimeter defenders we saw, and 6-foot-9 Wise big man Eric Wright was one of the best shot blockers.
