Phenom Hoop Report travelled to Elon University to cover the inaugural Elite Camp under first year head coach Mike Schrage. Elon’s staff of Jonathan Holmes, Mark Adams, Allen Payne, Tyler Lewis and Josh Pierre did a remarkable job of putting together an excellent roster of talent. In addition, the camp was well organized and scout friendly as the players participated in stations, skill development, one on one, three on three and five on five games. However, the highlight was able to monitor players go through a list of stations and carefully watch their work ethic and overall skill set. In our Super Six and More segment, we mentioned the following players: Kuluel Mading, Omarion Bodrick, Jacori Owens, Anthony Allen, Jamarii Thomas, Josh Beadle, RJ Noord, Tyler Rice, Tyler Gill, Glenn Bynum, Elijah Gray, Kheni Briggs, Amare Haynie, and Matt Davis. https://www.phenomhoopreport.com/elon-elite-camps-super-six-and-more/
Elon Elite Camp Part 2
6’2 2022 Chase Cormier (Atlanta Celtics/ St. Paul HS)
The southpaw is a highly skilled combo guard that has tremendous range beyond the 3-point arch. He has excellent form, shooting mechanics, and shoots at a high efficiency. That being said, he is a good decision maker with the ball and has a nice balance between distributing the ball to open teammates and scoring opportunities. In addition, we were equally impressed with his hand quickness and ability to get steals and deflections.
6’8 2021 Will Felton (Garner Road/ Millbrook HS)
Standing a strong and sturdy 6’8, Will Felton has excellent length and an aggressive play on the court. One thing is for certain, you won’t and don’t have to teach effort and running the floor. Felton is an aggressive rebounder on both ends of the court. Boxes out well and has terrific anticipation for securing loose balls and rebounds. More importantly, Felton understands his role and doesn’t venture far from the paint. In addition, he has passer friendly hands and a willing passer out of the post.
6’5 2021 Mike Dudley (Team United EYBL/ United Faith)
What a spring and summer for the jumping jack wing. A relative unknown coming into the spring/summer, Mike Dudley has quickly elevated himself into the conversation as a legit D1 prospect. Dudley has freakish athleticism, but has the ability to knock down perimeter shots. He can score from all three levels, but one of his strongest attributes is his transition defense. He’s such a quick and explosive leaper and has great anticipation in chasing down transition layups into blocked shots.
6’8 2020 Tyler Young (New Light Disciples/ Fork Union Military Academy)
Tyler Young may not pass the basketball eye test just yet, but give him another year at Fork Union. Sporting the look of a football tight end or tackle, Young will completely surprise you with his touch out to 15 feet. As we have stated on many occasion, Young is a walking “double double.” and his play at camp was no exception. He quietly goes about his business and just gets rebounds and points around the rim and occasional mid range jumper. Young currently sports D2 offers, but look for D1 schools to get involved.
6’5 2020 Cam Edwards (CP3/ Liberty Heights)
Cam Edwards just has a knack for scoring. He has a nose for the ball and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Edwards can score from all three levels and has the ability to knock down 3-pointers with efficiency. In addition, Edwards is a very humble and high character young man who plays the game the right way.
6’6 2020 Josh Reid (Team Wall/ Word of God)
Josh Reid has a nice blend of athleticism and matching skill set. That being said, we were very impressive with his overall hustle and high motor throughout the day. Reid gave maximum effort and showcased his ability to knock down 3-pointers, which will elevate his overall stock. Reid is currently running below the D1 recruiting radar, but we strongly feel he could be one of the area’s biggest sleepers.
