South Florida welcomed just over 80 prospects to its annual Elite Camp on Saturday. Consisting of 12 teams of players in the 2020-2023 classes, there was a ton of talent on hand to evaluate.

Here is Part 1 of the list of top standouts I had a chance to see on the day.

Jalen Smith (Oak Ridge)

2021 6'3" Oak Ridge guard Jalen Smith was perhaps the most consistent scorer in attendance. His ball fakes, drives to the hoop and overall speed was hurting defenses. Offered late in July by USF and Stetson previously, Smith is just scratching the surface and is maturing from being known as a deep ball shooter. This is a huge junior year for him.

Taylor Hendricks (University)

Offered by USF on Saturday, UF on Friday and Miami in July, 2022 6'7" University forward Taylor Hendricks is quickly coming into the recruiting scene. I was most impressed with his ability to shoot from deep and his active play on the boards was equally nice to see. Hendricks is a long body, who simply plays hard on both ends, doesn't complain and has nice versatility.

Ramses Melendez (Central Pointe Christian)

Perhaps one of the most electric players
