NBPA Camp: Top Performers

Every year the NBPA Camp gives us an opportunity to evaluate a number of the nation's top prospects, as the go head-to-head for three consecutive days in Charlottesville, Va. This time around a 2015 prospect took home the MVP, but a number of 2014 prospects made our Top Performers list.

Quick Take: The motor has been running all spring for Craig Victor and it certainly didn't stop in Charlottesville, Va., at the NBPA Camp. The 6-foot-8 forward raced rim-to-rim looking to make plays in transition. He was active in the paint and pursued rebounds in and out of his area. Victor also showed consistency with his mid-range jump shot and hit five of them in one game. His effort has been consistent all spring and he seems to be playing with a chip on his shoulder.

Quick Take: A versatile 6-foot-8 forward, Kevon Looney was up to his old tricks at NBPA Camp. He's had a reputation as one of the nation's best rebounders for quite some time and he left camp averaging eight boards a game, which was good for second behind camp MVP Cheick Diallo. Offensively he made aggressive plays towards the rim, hit mid-range jump shots and scored off of put backs.

Quick Take: It shouldn't be a surprise to see the camp MVP listed in this space. Cheick Diallo, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound post prospect, was sensational during the three-day event. His showing wasn't necessarily a surprise though. Diallo has done this all spring playing for Team Scan. He rarely runs out of energy, is active on both ends of the floor and is one of the best rebounders, not only in the 2015 class, but also in the country.

Quick Take: When Myles Turner steps on the court, the opposition is forced to make changes to their game plan. Take his match up with Skal Labissiere, one of the best post scorers regardless of class, for example. Turner held Labissiere to three points (while scoring 18), and didn't give him a clean look at the rim. Turner's length, athleticism and timing make him the nation's premier rim protector. Offensively, he continues to show improvement. He shoots the ball well form both mid-range and three and will mix in a post finish. Turner's confidence is growing and it's easy to see when he steps on the court.

Quick Take: Heading into NBPA Camp, Kelly Oubre certainly was a household name among recruitniks, but not many would have predicted the type of showing he had. Oubre led the camp in scoring at 13.8 points a game and was one of the top wing performers in attendance. He connected on jump shots from three and mixed in strong, physical drives to the rim. Oubre capped a strong spring with a standout performance at one of the premier camps in the country.

Quick Take: Trimble was excellent nearly every game out. The four-star guard showed a little bit more ability to play the point, but it was his scoring that was so impressive. While Trimble isn't an elite athlete, he is someone who just knows how to play and is excellent at creating space for himself using the dribble. Trimble really knows how to play and is someone who is extremely efficient and doesn't waste dribbles or take bad shots. Overall it was a very impressive showing from him, and one in which he showed he is among the elite in the country.

Recruiting: Committed to Maryland

Quick Take: It was business as usual for Jackson. The future Tar Heel has been one of the top players in the class for a while, and ever since the high school season he has been on fire shooting the basketball. Jackson is someone who is elite in the mid-range. He uses the dribble to get to the 15 foot mark, and from there he is absolutely lethal. Also Jackson took and made some threes, showing that should be a major part of his game in college.

Recruiting: Committed to North Carolina

Quick Take: Always someone who has been able to get to the rim off the dribble, Whitehead is now showing he is a lethal shooter as well. With those two parts of his game firing on all cylinders, Whitehead is making himself extremely difficult to guard. Whitehead was excellent every time out on the floor at the camp and no one seemed to have a way to stop him. Most importantly not only did Whitehead score, but he did it in an efficient manner, and showed how difficult he is to defend in one-on-one situations.

Recruiting: Louisville, Minnesota, UCLA, St. John's, Syracuse

Size: 7-11/225 |
Quick Take: Just a 2015 prospect, Zimmerman more than held his own. The athletic center ran the floor, showed his ability to score on the block, and stepped out and hit some jumpers. Also Zimmerman showed he is a more than willing rebounder who will mix it up on the glass. There aren't many post prospects capable of doing what Zimmerman does on the floor, and he made a statement with his play all camp long.

Size: 6-9/150 |
Quick Take: The numbers that Ulis put up won't blow you away, but at the same time he did so much for team. Ulis simply knows how to run the show and got his teammates involved in every single way possible. He is an elite passer, he sees the floor well, and he has a great IQ and feel for the game. Ulis gets his teammates open shots, and completely controlled the style of game for his team when he was on the floor.
