NBA Players Top 100 Camp Recap

While it's nearly impossible to see every bit of action at the NBA Players Top 100 Camp -- StateFans.com contributor Clint Jackson got to see several of the Wolfpack's top targets in action this week in Richmond. Among those in attendance were 6-7 WF Corey Brewer, 6-8 PF James Mays and 6-10 PF-C Cedric Simmons, who has already verbally committed to play for Herb Sendek's squad.

Here are some observations from the camp:

Corey Brewer -- This was our first look at Brewer and we think he has unlimited potential down the road. This long and lanky forward fared quite well against the elite players from across the country. He's an extraordinary athlete who runs, slashes and dunks with ease. He also uses his long body quite well to shoot over, pass around and see over the defense. He's not a finished product yet by any means -- but this is the type of kid who could be an ultimate stopper on the defensive end due to his length, quick feet and athleticism.

Cedric Simmons -- The athletic and agile big man had an up and down tournament. We caught three of his games this week and while he had one game to forget -- he had a couple of nice performances as well. It's common knowledge that Simmons likes to take the ball right to the rim and lay down the law with his powerful dunks. And boy -- he had a few nice ones. He also hit a few baseline jumpers and fadeaways as well. You won't see many big men who can run the floor and finish like Simmons and we think he's going to be a big time player for the Pack in the future. Areas of improvement are in the half-court game and post scoring fundamentals.

James Mays -- What we love about this kid is the fact that he's just so active. I mean this kid is all over the place. He likes to rebound. He likes to dunk and he likes to play defense. He's coming along in the shooting department, but right now, this is a kid who's a perfect combo-forward for a transition team. His hands are solid and he'll get his share of steals and blocks as well. His soaring two- handed jam in traffic on Wednesday night was one of the most electrifying plays of the weekend.
