Elite Camps are all around in the month of August. Indiana Wesleyan held theirs this past weekend in Marion and had a good showing with around 80 prospects. Prep Hoops Indiana was on hand and will detail the top prospects from the event.
Mark Albers – 6'4 | WG | 2017 – Pendleton Heights
Albers had himself a solid day. He's known mostly as a shooter and seemed to fill that role well on Saturday. He's got a good body with some strength but he isn't very mobile right now. Defensively that will hurt him but offensively it doesn't matter too much when you can hit threes like he does.
Evan Ohman – 6'4 | WG | 2017 – Lewis Cass
It was great to see Evan back on the court and fully healthy. He's been hobbled by injuries but he's back and doesn't look like he lost much of his game. Good size on the perimeter and can handle the ball. Shot it well during the camp and provided some offense. It will be fun to see how far he can improve this fall before the high school season starts.
Haden Deaton – 6'5 | SF | 2017 – McCutcheon
Even if Deaton was one of the most effecient scorers in the state, he would still be a solid college prospect because of his aggressiveness and his size. He looks like a football wide receiver who can fend of swipe attempts as he drives at the rim. This weekend, though, he showed his shooting touch. If he had a knock it was his ability to hit a three, not near as much of a concern as it was before the weekend.
Daulton Blackwell – 6'4 | SG | 2017 – Mitchell
There is a lot to like about Blackwell and one day he is going to put it all together and he's going to be a very good basketball player. Right now, you see spurts of it like when he handles the ball and gets past some defenders. His passing is really solid and he hit shots this weekend. Has to shorten his shot as he brings it down low right now but down the road and combining everything together, this could be a really good complete player.
Nic Reed – 6'5 | SF | 2016 – Christian Academy
Reed isn't a guy I've seen a ton of but he's got a lot to like about his game. He's 6'5 and decently built for a forward. Nic is okay with playing in the post and being around the rim. Whether it is driving from the wing or getting in their for rebounds, he is effective. Want to see more scoring from the wing but still, Nic is gaining traction.
Allante Harper – 5'11 | PG | 2017 – Warren Central
Harper is a well-built guard with a strong dribble and a tough game. He's not a bad shooter but lends himself more to the driving and dishing game. Harper can pass fairly well once he enters the lane and his physical nature allows him to do it effectively. He'll have to add a bit more speed or hesitation dribble, something to create more space but once he does he could see his offense become a bigger part of his game.
Miles Wayer – 6'0 | PG | 2016 – Mt. Vernon (Fortville)
Wayer is just one of those underrated guys who makes plays and never costs you anything when he is on the court. Over the past few weeks, he has proved that he can handle all the point guard duties and with just enough size, he can defend a decent range of opposing guards. Still relies on his perimeter jump shot but it is a strong weapon for him.
Wyatt Hughes – 6'7 | PF | 2017 – Maconaquah
Hughes was probably the best player at this camp. He measured in at 6'7 and if he could sneak out another inch or two that could really open some doors. He's such a good shooter from three and he's starting to mix in his mid-range game more often. He can back you down in the mid-range with a turnaround jumper, face-up and drive with a spin move to create separation, or just face-up and shoot in your face. Wyatt has a lot to his game with room for improvement on a diverse scoring set.
