Breakout Performers: RBK, Hoop Group

Every year a strong effort in July boosts a players stock and reputation and this year is no different. After evaluation prospects at the Hoop Group Session II and Team Camp, as well as the RBK Breakout Camp and Showdown Series, five guys stood out at breakout performers.

Size: 6-5/175 |
Quick Take: After a strong week at Hoop Group Session II, Richardson bypassed the underclassmen game and made the camps top 20 showcase game. He was arguably the most impressive prospect in the game and showed an ability to score from three, mid-range and at the rim. At 6-foot-5, Richardson has a lengthy frame that will add weight easily. He has the potential to be one of the better wings in the 2015 class.

Size: 6-3/175 |
Quick Take: One of the better athletes at Reebok Camp, Mostella established himself as an intriguing 6-foot-2 guard. To go with his impressive leaping ability, Mostella scored from all three levels. He made threes off the catch and on the move, but also worked in his mid-range shot. Mostella will be someone we pay attention to the rest of the way, as he has a lot of raw ability and can score it at a high level.

Quick Take: Heading into camp not much was known about Robinson, a 6-foot-6 length wing out of Richmond. Robinson quickly became a big name at camp, as he showed an impressive scoring ability for his size and length. He has great touch and shot the ball quite well from mid and long-range. He certainly needs strength and some refining, but six weeks ago he was relatively unknown. Now he's on the map and schools are sure to be calling.

Size: 7-6/200 |
Quick Take: He's just a sophomore-to-be, but there's a lot to like about Bacon and his future as a basketball player. At 6-foot-5, he as a strongly built frame and is a very good athlete. He's good at attacking the rim and can finish once there, either through contact or with a floater. His shot from three was streaky, but he certainly has a ability to make shots behind the stripe.

Size: 7-7/205 |
Quick Take: Among the standouts at the Hoop Group Session II was this 6-foot-7 lengthy combo forward. Upon first glance he looked like a step out four-man that shoots the ball with ease, however the more I watched Larrier the more wing skills he showed. He's skilled and handles the ball quite well for his size. Larrier made shots out to 22-feet off the catch, but also on the move. He has a lot of raw ability and is sure to be a target for coaches the rest of July.
