Future Stars of Tomorrow

Ole Miss' Elite 11 Camp was aimed at getting in their top sophomore and junior prospects.To see which players were in attendance, read below.

Top Jr Prospects

Romero Osby
Romero Osby
(PF, N'East Lauderdale, MS) - The 6' 9", 245 pounder is listed by several outlets as one of the Top 50 rising junior prospects in the country.

Osby broke his wrist so he was not able to participate at the Elite 11 camp, but he came down anyway to meet the new Rebel staff.

This past season, Romero averaged 19.7 points, 17 rebounds, and 6 blocks per game for N' East Lauderdale.

MSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, USM, Kansas, Memphis, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, LSU, Wake Forest, and Oregon are all heavily involved in Osby's recruitment.

Some insiders believe the Tide could have the inside track for this talented big man, but Osby is keeping it close to the vest.

Rashanta Harris
Rashanta Harris
(PF, New Hope, MS) - Rashanta has a chance to join Romero Osby as a national recruit for the class of '08 if he continues down the path he is on. Harris is considered the #2 prospect for Mississippi's rising junior class.

The 6' 9", 225 power forward can be dominant at times. He possesses a great power game and loves to dunk the ball whenever given the opportunity. Harris can handle the rock in the open court and is very athletic. Rashanta has a "pro body" and has all of the tools that are needed for a big time D1 prospect.

If there are two areas of improvement that Harris must work on, it would be his form with his jump shot and not taking plays off. Both are easily correctable, and by watching him at the past two Elite 11 camps, we would be very surprised if he does not correct these flaws and make a big impact on the next level.

Word has it that MSU has made some good inroads with Rashanta, but Ole Miss, Memphis, Tennessee, Alabama and several more of the top upper tier programs are in hot pursuit.

JaMychal Green
JaMychal Green
(SF, Montgomery, AL) - Perhaps the most talented player at the Ole Miss Elite camp was St. Jude product, JaMychal Green.

Green is listed as 6' 7 1/2", 205 but has the wingspan of a player who is 7' 2".

JaMychal averaged 27 points, 15 rebounds, and 8 blocks a game as a junior.

Green was a human highlight machine at the Elite 11 camp. He possesses great body control and is at his best down low. He can post anybody up and defends very well in the post. If there is one thing that JaMychal still needs to work on it is his ball handling skills. But he has plenty of time to get that chore completed, as he is still only 16 years old.

Green plays for the Alabama Challenge (AAU) and attended the Nike Jamboree in St. Louis last week.

JaMychal is being recruited the hardest by Kansas, Alabama, Stanford, and Alabama, but he is also interested in Georgia, North Carolina, and Oklahoma.

Donald Williams
Donald Williams
(SF, Baton Rouge, LA) - The Southern Lab product possesses a very solid all around game. He does not do anything flashy. He just gets the job done.

Williams was measured in at 6' 7", 200 at the OM Elite 11 camp.

Donald was named 1st Team All-district and State (1A) after helping Southern Lab to the '06 State Championship.

He averaged 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists for the year.

Williams has a knack for knowing where the ball is going after it hits the rim. He is very quick for a man his size and possesses a nice touch around the basket. He will have to work on his open court skills for the next level, but he has the athleticism and body to make it happen on the next level.

The Rebels are impressed with Donald, and they will continue to evaluate Williams during his junior season.

Devin Grigsby
Devin Grigsby
(3G, Baton Rouge, LA) - The City of Baton Rouge will be loaded for the '08 class.

Devin will be one of the standouts for this group, as he helped the Panthers to the State Championship (4A) as a freshman and a Semifinal appearance this past season.

Grigsby was named to the 1st Team All-District squad and was named the Defensive MVP for District 6-4A.

Leventrice Gray
Leventrice Gray
(3G, Jackson Lanier, MS) - Leventrice was very active during the 5 on 5 games at the Ole Miss Elite 11 camp.

He looked to be in the 6' 5", 190 range. Has a good jump shot and never takes a place off.

He is limited, somewhat, due to his physical skills. But he has enough game to make a good Mid Major signee.

Top Jr's not pictured

Two of Memphis' top players for the '08 class were also in attendance.

*Jarvis Jones out of traditionally rich, Mitchell, is considered the top guard prospect in Tennessee for the '08 class.

Jarvis is listed as 6' 3", 165 and can shoot the lights out.

During the recent Wallace Prather Memorial Classic that was held at Georgia Tech, Jones poured in 42 points which included 11 three pointers.

Jones looked no different at the Ole Miss Elite 11 Camp. He is very smooth with the ball and has the perfect shooting technique. Jarvis has a very quick release and has unlimited range.

If you recall, arguable the nation's top senior prospect, Thaddeus Young, played with Jarvis this past season.

It is no surprise that the Yellow Jackets are in heavy pursuit for Jones' signature, as they signed Young in April. But Georgia Tech will have to battle Colorado (offer), Illinois, Florida, MSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Arkansas for his services.

Colorado, Illinois, Georgia Tech, and Florida are the four early leaders.

*Terrico White, out of Craigmont (TN), is a highly regarded guard out of Memphis that attended the Ole Miss Elite 11 camp.

White is a 6' 4" combo guard who possesses a soft touch and has great hops. Terrico has very good ball handling skills and could play point, shooting, or the three guard on the next level.

Terrico has an early list that includes Georgia Tech, Tennessee, and Ole Miss (offer).

Top Sophomore

Leslie McDonald
Leslie McDonald
(PG, Briarcrest, TN) - Leslie has already been given a 4 Star ranking by Scout.com and is rated as high as the #24 prospect in the country by one recruiting service.

For good reason.

He can handle the rock, shoot with the best of them, sees the open lanes, and can jump out of the gym. One of the telling stats on Leslie is the fact that he is 6' 4" but has the wingspan of someone who is 6' 11". Wow!

But most importantly, Leslie is not selfish on the court and is a total team player.

It is too early to know who the main players will be for this young man's services, but whoever lands Leslie, will be getting themselves a gem.

In fact, out of the 65 players who attended the Ole Miss Elite 11 camp, McDonald was the best.

Pascagoula Duo
We were not able to gather the names of these two players from Pascagoula but we gathered that the rising sophomore, which is a 6' 1" guard, has a chance to be a solid D1 prospect.
