Several additional kids at the camp had notable showings this weekend in front of the Michigan basketball staff.

Nick Daniels, class of 2013, Westland John Glenn. The 6'0 sweet shooting lefty had a very solid day at the Elite Camp in Ann Arbor. Although he was not stroking it from deep as we are accustomed to seeing him do, his floor game was solid. He attacked the basket numerous times for buckets at the cup, as well as droppings some assist to get his teammates involved. Nick has never shied away from competition and he didn't do it at the camp -- he stepped up and not back. His quickness along with his ability to create space to get his shot off makes him a tough cover.

Michael Edwards, class of 2015, Westland John Glenn. At 6'8 as he walked through the door of Michigan's practice facility the coaches took notice of this rising freshman. Michael's weaknesses at this point in his development are his post-game and needing to gain more strength. With that said he does so many other things well. Blocking shots is one of them, he blocks shots in the post and on the close-out on the perimeter. Michael has good enough feet to be a very good defender; he is also a solid rebounder and can score around the basket. With hard work he will only get better.

Jaylen Plummer, class of 2013, Romulus high. Standing at 6'4, he does so many things well. He is the type of kid that every talented team needs because he is willing to do whatever it takes to win. He can score in a variety of ways: he can score from deep, drop you off at the rack for two, or out work you for a garbage rebound and turn it into a layup. Jaylen's motor never stops and it shows on the most important side of the floor -- defense. He takes pride in getting after his guy on defense. He was one of our favorite guys at the camp because of the effort he brings.   

Carlos Alexander, class of 2015, Alton High. It was debatable as to who was the best athlete in the first session, but we would be foolish to not mention his name. This high flyer threw down a dunk that had everyone oohing and aahhing. The kid was not able to show everything do to limited offensive chances. Carlos did show that he is a capable defender with his long arms and quick feet. He also displayed a very good knack for blocking shots. With his athleticism and skill set we are looking forward to his continued development.

 Amanze Egekeze, class of 2014, Huntley (IL) High. We were looking forward to seeing what this physical youngster would do with the Michigan coaching staff looking on.  Unfortunately he was unable to make it due to injury.
