Quick Take: The future Indiana Hoosier had a great week down in Charlottesville. He came in from game one and asserted himself as one of the best guards in the camp. Ferrell was getting to the rim at will, making shots at a high level, and showed the physical gifts that have him competing for the top point guard spot in the country. Overall he was as good as it gets from game one until the very end.

Quick Take: Usually younger players struggle at an event like this one, but Britt thrived at the camp. Britt proved that he can absolutely compete with anybody in the country, and that he could be the best point guard in high school basketball. Britt was making shots, getting others involved, and displayed good leadership ability along the way. For a class of 2013 prospect it was an extremely impressive showing.

Quick Take: There is no substitute for toughness and effort, and Smart showed both of those traits all camp long. He was taking charges, making shots, grabbing rebounds, and playing great defense. His versatility and strength are impressive, and Smart is showing a lot of skill as well. Overall he just looked like a kid who a college coach will win a lot of games with.

Quick Take: Excluding his matchup against Smart in which Sulaimon got a little frustrated, he was a scoring machine all camp long. Sulaimon played off the ball on offense and defended all the top guards on defense. He is smart, athletic, makes shots, and brings an intensity and toughness to the floor every time out. There was not much to pick apart with Sulaimon's performance during the entire camp. His offensive efficiency is quite impressive.

Quick Take: Things ended on a very high note for Harris as he hit the game winner in the championship game, but there was a lot of substance all camp long with his play. An elite level defender, Harris showed that against many of the top guards, and then also scored it well on the offensive end. Harris is a high level athlete and his shot is getting better and better. Quite simply he is becoming one of the most difficult players in the class to defend.

Quick Take: Purvis missed the beginning of camp due to a summer school commitment, but once he did get to Charlottesville he made a big impact. He played on the ball, and while he isn't a point guard, Purvis was solid in that role. Still what he did best was score, and get into the lane. With his athleticism and strength, Purvis is extremely tough to handle off the dribble, and time after time he was able to get where he wanted on the floor.
