This year's Elite 100 Middle School camp is being used to seek out participants for the First Annual Middle School All-American Game to be played in 2018. This game is associated with the 3rd Annual Underclassman All-American Game held here in Atlanta. Here are some of the top performers from the camp:
2022 6'8 PF Malique Ewin believes he will be over 7'0 tall and for good reason, his dad is 7'0. You can see that he is still growing and you can also see the potential in this kid. Ewin has good hands, can finish around the basket, and he can shoot the midrange jumper. On the defensive end his length causes a problem and allows him to be able to protect the rim. Plays with a great motor and understands the concept of the outlet pass.
2022 6'1 CG Zachary Johansen was one of the more aggressive guards in the camp. Johansen has a motor and it's hard to slow him down. He's hard to stop once he gets down hill. Once he gets the understanding of playing with pace he can be a dangerous slashing guard.
2024 5'3 PG Micah Tucker was one of the more skilled guards in the camp. He has a nice handle of the rock, with the ability to change direction and speed. He was able to get past bigger defenders. Tucker also has very good court vision.
2022 5'9 CG Zocko Littleton was one of the best shooting guards in the camp. His ability to shoot off the catch or dribble makes him extremely dangerous on offense. Littleton has a nice stroke and every time the rock leaves his hand it looks like a bucket. He has the ability to create space using the dribble.
2022 6'6 F Joyful Hawkins was one of the more athletic kids in the camp. He finishes above the rim when around the basket. He also has the ability to finish in traffic. Hawkins took it relatively easy because his size advantage over most campers. On the defensive end he is a rim protector.
2022 6'3 SF Anthony Grant Jr. was one of the better wings in the camp. He displayed the ability to take defenders off the dribble and finish thru contact. Grant also showed he can knock down the open 3 ball.
2024 5'0 PG CJ Hyland impressed many during the camp. He has an elite handle of the rock and he takes care of the ball. Hyland has a nice stroke and knows how to create space off the bounce to get his shot up.
2022 6'3 F Jalen Pugh-Dennis caught my eye with his moves in the post with his back to the basket. He scored a number of easy baskets with his post play ability. He can also knock down 15-footer.This kid has good footwork and a nice feel of the defender. This kid can also take his defender from the perimeter and finish.
2022 5'4 PG Isaiah Lewis displayed an elite ball handling ability with good court vision. He was able to get into the lane to cause the defense to collapse.
2022 6'5 F Syveion Ellis was struggling with an lingering injury but still showed some upside. This kids physical stature is a problem for opponents on both sides of the floor. He boxes out and can rebound both sides of the glass. Ellis can also finish around the rim.
2023 5'5 CG Kenric Lanier showed he can play on or off the ball. When he was playing more of a PG role he was getting to the basket or finding open teammates. When off the ball he knows how to get open and has a nice form on his jump shot.
2022 6'2 CG Jordan Brown showed he elite status all day. He was getting to the rim where he overpowered defenders and finished and he was knocking down mid-range jumpers. Brown also displayed an elite passing ability in transition and in half-court. He found open teammates all day. He had his hands full trying to guard 6'6 Hawkins but he did a good job of making it tough for guards to make the entry pass into the post.
2025 4'8 CG Alex Willock was playing up as a 5th grader in a middle school camp and he impressed. The lefty was able to get to the rim and finish with a floater. Willock also did a good job of handling the rock.
2025 4'9 PG Kameron Plummer is another 5th grader that participated in the camp. He has a nice handle of the rock and a nice form on his jump shot. This kid played at his pace the entire time.
