ST. LOUIS -- Every year Nike puts together the Elite 100, which consists of 100 of the top sophomores and juniors in the country. Who stood out this time around?

Quick Take: The top wing prospect at the Nike Elite 100 was this 6-foot-6 small forward out of Marietta (Ga.) Wheeler. Brown was physical and aggressive with his drives to the rim throughout camp. A high level athlete, Brown had a handful of highlight reel finishes, including a monster dunk over a 6-foot-11 post player, but he also worked in shots from mid-range and catch and shoot three-pointers. He's progressed quite a bit this spring and clearly came to play in St. Louis.

Quick Take: A skilled 6-foot-4 wing guard, Kennard was one of the better offensive threats at NIKE Elite 100 this past weekend. Kennard aggressively drove to either side and proved to be a strong finisher at the rim. He also showed a floater and confidence in his mid-range pull-up. While he didn't connect on long-range shots when I watched, it was clear he has deep range on jump shot. Kennard appears to be one of the better wings in the 2015 class.

Quick Take: Perhaps the top overall prospect at camp, Labissiere, who stands 6-foot-11 and checks in at 200-pounds, showed off his skill at camp. For a guy his size, Labissiere has a terrific set of hands, great touch in the paint and he's already developed a post game. He's aggressive with his moves, but rarely rushes them. He can step out and shoot jump shots, but he's also capable of scoring off of hooks over each shoulder. Labissiere is an elite prospect in the 2015 class.

Quick Take: Just a sophomore-to-be, Maker, who measured in at over 7-foot, has an impressive feel for the game. At his size, he moves fluidly up and down the floor, is a pretty good athlete and is a skilled post player. He's able to step out and shoot, but where he does his most damage is from 15-feet and in. Sure he lacks strength at this point, but he has great hands and touch inside. He's a confident post scorer that is aggressive when he has scoring opportunities. On defense, he anchors the paint and is a presence that the opposition has to be mindful of.

Size: 7-8/240 |
Quick Take: Diagne had a breakout performance in St. Louis. The 6-foot-8, 230-pound post player was arguably the most physical post prospect at camp. Diagne was active in the paint both looking to reel in every rebound within reach, but also contesting shots. Offensively he showed some scoring ability. He finished plays in the paint, dropped in hooks and showed he could knock down mid-range jump shots. It was an eye opening effort from Diagne.

Size: 6-3/161 |
Quick Take: At camp Davis played both on and off the ball and was effective in both roles. The 6-foot-3 guard is skilled enough to handle the ball in tough situations, but he's at his best when he's looking to score. He's a crafty handler that always seems to find a way to slither into the paint. He shoots it well to three, has a middle game that includes floaters and despite lacking strength scores it well around the rim.
