The Texas native has been one of the most consistent producers all camp long. On Friday, Flagg was absolutely tremendous. While Flagg doesn’t blow you away with athleticism, he is plenty enough athletic, and he has a high skill level, solid feel for the game, and good basketball IQ as well.

Flagg was scoring in the mid-range, rebounding, making good passes, and even finished around the rim. With his understanding for the game and ability to make plays off the bounce he proved to be extremely difficult to defend, and was somebody who absolutely proved to be one of the better prospects in his area in the 2017 class.

Recruiting: Savion Flagg has LouisvilleGeorgia Tech, Northwestern, Texas A&M, Texas, Purdue, Creighton and others very interested.

All spring long Brandon Randolph showed himself to be one of the premier shooters in the country, and he hasn’t slowed down at all here at NBPA Top 100 Camp. The native of New York has been scoring it at a nice clip, and has especially been big time from beyond the arc.

With his long arms and solid athleticism he is capable of scoring going to the rim, and then also was seemingly automatic at times when his feet were set from deep. It was a very productive day from Randolph who again has shown why his status as a prospect has soared in the last year.

Recruiting: Brandon Randolph is hearing from Syracuse, Georgetown, Louisville, Arizona, Xavier, North Carolina, Maryland, Wake Forest, Villanova, Marquette and many others.

Again it was a very strong day for Paul Scruggs who is the type of kid that absolutely thrives in a camp setting. Scruggs, who is at his best when it is up and down and where his motor can shine, is perfect for NBPA Top 100 Camp, and he is proving it with his play. He is getting to the rim, and has been a monster on defense.

After having a bit of a hot streak shooting the ball on Friday, Scruggs is now going back to what he typically does which is go to the basket and create off the dribble. Also Scruggs has shown some improved decision making with the ball in his hands.

Recruiting: Paul Scruggs is most interested in Indiana, Xavier, Illinois, Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky, Kansas and Michigan State.

Five-star versatile forward Zion Williamson is leading the NBPA Top 100 Camp in scoring and has done so in impression fashion.

Williams, who says he’s heard comparisons to Draymond Green, Charles Barkley and Larry Johnson, has a unique game at his 6-foot-6, 235-pound size. Williamson is an explosive and powerful leaper. His offensive attack is versatile, as he’ll drive the ball from the perimeter, back down defenders and a make a post move or get out in transition and finish on the break.

To go with his attack on the offensive end, Williamson is tracking as a very good rebounder because of his athletic ability, strength and motor. Williamson was top performer of the camp.

Recruiting: Zion Williamson is being targeted by Seton Hall, South Carolina, Clemson, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and others.

It’s been a successful camp and entire spring for 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward Chuma Okeke.

A versatile prospect, Okeke impacts the game in a variety of ways. Okeke, of Atlanta Westlake, manages to do the little things on the court and consistently comes up with rebounds, loose ball and makes all around winning plays.

Okeke’s offensive attack continues to evolve as well. He’s improving as a shooter and made multiple threes and mid-range jump shots in our evaluations of him. He was also aggressive off the dribble and will look to post up defenders every now and then as well.

Recruiting: Chuma Okeke is being pursued by Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Florida and Kansas.

Isaiah Washington has had a very productive 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp. The aggressive, tough lead guard attacked the rim in the half court and looked to push the tempo in transition.

Washington has a knack for getting into the paint and he did a great job finishing off plays and scoring around the basket. Friday night he also knocked down a three-pointer and showed a feel for making decisions in the pick and roll.

Recruiting: Isaiah Washington is seriously considering Minnesota, Seton Hall and others.

http://www.scout.com/player/209969-balsa-koprivica/

Balsa Koprivica had a nice week at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. He’s a center with a good frame and very long arms who impacts the game in a number of areas.

Koprivica has good footwork and can finish inside but he also can step out and shoot. He’s a very impressive passer for a center while he also rebounds his area and contests shots due to his length. There’s nothing but upside here.

Recruiting: Balsa Koprivica holds offers from Baylor and Miami, amongst others.

http://www.scout.com/player/198184-ikey-obiagu

Offensively there’s no doubt that Obiagu is very much a work in progress and had his rough patches this week. However, he bounced back very nicely on Saturday and showed what makes him an elite defensive prospect.

Obiagu has a big time frame with the size and length you want out of a center. His biggest attribute is his shot blocking ability and on Saturday he made opponents who tried to take the ball inside pay.

Recruiting: Ikey Obiagu listed Louisville, Baylor, California and Georgia, amongst others.

http://www.scout.com/player/192432-e-j-montgomery

This was a big week for Montgomery’s development, as he showed just how far he’s come over the last year. A power forward with good size and length for the position, Montgomery is an elite passer who has tremendous vision.

Montgomery did a nice job playing hard, hitting open jumpers and finishing in transition. This week he very much showed why he was considered an elite prospect while playing up with the Atlanta Celtics 17u squad as an eighth grader.

Recruiting: E.J. Montgomery’s offer list includes Auburn, Florida State, NC State and UCLA.
