Top Juniors at Ole Miss' Elite Camp

The Rebels hosted several key prospects for the '09 class. To get a sneak peak at who they were, read below

Top Junior Prospects

Jeremy Olsen

Jeremy Olsen (PF/C, Collins Hill, GA) - The 6' 9", 215 pounder has good size, toughness, and shooting ability for a kid his size.

He will need to work on his quickness and lift off of the floor, but nevertheless, he looks to be a solid D1 prospect.

Ole Miss is keeping a close eye on the young man, while Utah, BYU, and Xavier have already offered.






Gentry Hinds

Gentry Hinds (PG, Memphis, TN) - The 6' 0", 185 pound point guard can simply score it from anywhere on the floor and has cat quick reflexes. Gentry has exceptional ball handling skills and can flat out shoot the basketball.

Hinds needs to work on becoming a true point guard, but he has all of the tools to become a high D1 prospect.

Ole Miss (offer), Memphis, and Tennessee (offer) are the three main players at this point.








Christian Watford

Christian Watford (SF, Birmingham, AL) - The highest rated recruit for the '09 class that attended the Elite camp at Ole Miss has all of the tools.'s #6 rated strong forward is versatile and has exceptional knowledge of the game. He needs to become a more consistent shooter, and if he does that, we might be looking at another Shane Battier.

Like Battier, Watford simply does it all. He plays hard, knows how to play the game, and has elite athletic ability on the court.

Christian can pretty much hand pick where he wants to attend on the next level. He virtually has offers from all of the SEC and ACC programs.

Jontaveous Sulton

Jontaveous Sulton (Wing, Yazoo County, MS) - Jontaveous was one of the more talented kids at Ole Miss' Elite camp. He is very versatile, long, and plays hard each and every play.

The 6' 7", 195 pounder is very active but needs to find his natural position on the floor and add some body strength and mass.

Jon Hood

Jon Hood (Wing, Madisonville, KY) - The 6' 6", 180 pounder had the softest shooting touch out of all of the campers.

The Rebels were so impressed by Hoods' performance at the Elite camp, that a scholarship offer was extended.

Jon simply knows how to play the game. He reminded one scout of a Keith Carter, in the retrospect that he can really think quickly and anticipates where the ball is going before anyone else. This makes up for his lack of quickness.

MTSU has also offered, and he was recently invited to the prestigious Kentucky Elite Camp. Look for his recruitment to really pick up in the near future.
