NBA Camp Day Two -- Wake Targets

A look at some of Wake Forest prospects' performances in Thursday's action -- day two of the NBA camp.

Wake Forest Targets-

Javaris Crittenton, 2006- The most athletic guard in America looked to find the open man in the game I saw him. Crittenton made a few very nice passes in transition and had a finish or two on the fast break.

Jamie Skeen, 2006- Playing hard was definitely not an issue with Jamie Skeen on Thursday. The 6-foot-8 power forward went after the boards very hard and used a nice touch around the basket. His passing ability stuck out on consecutive plays as he through a no look touch pass on the break and then an alley oop a few plays later. He's developed into a banger inside and likes to get physical.

Corey Stokes, 2007- Rumor had it that Stokes had an incredible first night, but when I saw him on Thursday, he must not have been feeling it. The jump shot wasn't going down, but he did hit a nice lay up after contact and a 10 footer as well. Stokes will definitely be a highly recruited prospect in 2007.

Stanley Robinson, 2006- Robinson was pretty active today, and in the morning session he was matched up with Wake Forest commit Jamie Skeen. While Skeen got his, Robinson might have gotten the best of him. Robinson had a massive one handed tip dunk, a couple of blocks, and he showed off some range from the three-point line.

Ishmael Smith, 2006- He didn't come with a big reputation, but in the game I saw he made some great passes in transition. The knock on him has to be his size, he's going to have to get stronger but he's better than his current 2-star ranking.

Duke Crews, 2006- You have to like the effort he puts on the floor. He had a number of dunks in the night cap and he runs the floor well. He showed a nice touch with a runner in the lane as well.

Eric Wallace, 2006- Wallace tried to dunk everything he got in his hand, the only problem was he oftentimes lost the ball when he got to the rack. As stated before, he has the physical features and the athleticism, he just needs to work on his jump shot a little. One thing that impressed me was Wallace joined Taylor King and O.J. Mayo after the first session on Thursday in a private workout with one of the coaches at the camp.
