Team 1

Coach: Dri Nazario 

#12: 5'5 '24 Zamareya Jones (North Pitt)

Starting things off, we look at a player who carries a reputation as a nationally recognized name, and rightfully so, Zamareya Jones. She's an incredibly smart, quick, unselfish point guard prospect with crafty ball-handling, sharp vision, and the ability to score the ball in a variety of different ways. Jones is literally able to breakdown any opponent in her pathway, able to make one decisive move or put defenders in a blender with a series of advanced dribbles, and touches the paint at a nonstop rate'where she's a strong finisher and elite playmaker. She clearly possesses a special instinct for the game on both ends of the floor. Jones is also a menace defensively, rebounds her position well, and naturally leads by example in all areas. Next in her development process is working to become a more consistent three-point shooter, as it would somehow make her even more unstoppable. Coach Nazario on Jones: 'Zamareya is a great point guard. Top in her class. Continues to show and prove herself as a high-major player. Plays with a high motor. She displays ball-handling ability and one or two-dribble pull-up. Plays big and long defensively, and is very active in transition. Killer offensively in transition.' Jones' talent is glaringly obvious, and should have the attention of every program in the country over the foreseeable future. 

#14: 5'3 '25 Sara Utley (High Point Christian)

Next, we look at a player who contributed quite nicely within the flow of the action, especially to be the smallest girl on this team, Sara Utley. She's a smart, team-first guard prospect with a solid motor, nice vision, and the ability to make an impact with or without the ball in her hands. Utley is a capable finisher and shooting threat with the understanding of how to properly find scoring opportunities as an off-ball cutter. Utley also rebounds the ball at a strong rate for her size/position. Next in her development process is working to become quicker, as it would make her a better penetrating threat. Coach Nazario on Utley: 'Sara shot the ball well. Displays attention to detail and communicates well with her teammates. I would've liked to see a little more from Sara, but she still competed well.' Utley contributed nicely throughout camp, especially given her age and size, and should emerge as a quality piece for High Point Christian over the coming years. 

#27: 5'4 '25 Emily Eads (Forbush)

Moving onto a player who consistently found ways to maximize her role on both ends of the floor, Emily Eads. She's a scrappy, unselfish, high-motor guard prospect with excellent defensive prowess and the ability to shoot the ball at a high percentage from the perimeter. Eads operates very well within her role and doesn't look to force the action offensively. She moves well without the ball and capitalizes on any available spot-up opportunities. Eads is a pesky defender at the point of attack and displays a knack for forcing on-ball turnovers. Next in her development process is working to become a craftier ball-handler, as it would make her a more dynamic creator off the bounce. Coach Nazario on Eads: 'Emily is super-impressive. She's an energy kid with knockdown abilities as a spot-up threat from beyond the arc. Ready for any challenge defensively. Coachable! Has the ability to change the game defensively. Her passing and one/two-dribble ability could continue to develop. Emily was fun to coach.' Eads enjoyed a phenomenal showing at camp, and should emerge as a leader sooner than later for Forbush. 

#35: 5'5 '22 Taylor Dunn (North Mecklenburg)

Continuing onto a player who easily stood out as one of the top shooting threats on display, Taylor Dunn. She's a smart, steady, well-rounded guard prospect with a very adaptable identity on either side of the ball. Dunn plays hard, defends her position well at the point of attack, and understands how to actively fill in the gaps. She's a lethal spot-up threat, especially from distance, but can also attack the basket, set up others, or knock down midrange jumpers. Next in her development process is working on her ability to move without the ball, as it would only make her an even more dangerous shooter off the catch. Coach Nazario on Dunn: 'Taylor is a high-motor kid with range out beyond the arc. Not as consistent from midrange but still shows promise. Can get to the rim but I'd like to see her finish more regularly. She's in great shape. Energy kid and natural leader.' Dunn proved to be an asset throughout camp, and should be a target for college coaches during her upcoming senior season at North Mecklenburg. 

#45: 5'7 '24 Serenity Woods (Legion Collegiate)

Next, we look at a player who highlighted a variety of enticing flashes during her time at camp, Serenity Woods. She's a tough, scrappy guard prospect with solid spot-up instincts and the necessary quickness to get by opponents. Woods is a useful finisher and ball-handler with the understanding to make an impact on both ends of the floor. Next in her development process is working on her off-ball awareness defensively, as it would allow her to intercept passing lanes and force more turnovers. Coach Nazario on Woods: 'Serenity displayed the ability to effectively read the floor well in spurts. She's a capable set shooter and can knock down open looks. She needs some improvements defensively and with her passing instinct. Serenity can also become more coachable.' Woods enjoyed a solid showing at camp and will be a prospect to watch progress over the coming years at Legion Collegiate. 

#46: 5'7 '24 Candice Williams (Page)

Moving onto a player who possesses a nice crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Candice Williams. She's an extremely tough, rugged, high-motor guard prospect with a clear desire to outwork her assignment defensively and make hustle plays whenever possible. Williams is a quality all-around defender with the blend of IQ, quickness, and physicality to force a ton of turnovers and push transition play. She's already great at doing the little things and should only continue to progress as an offensive threat. Next in her development process is working on her ability to move without the ball, as it would make her a better spot-up threat. Coach Nazario on Williams: 'Candice is a quick guard with the ability to defend any opposing backcourt player. Her shot is on-target, but needs to be more consistent. She can get to the rim, but can improve as a finisher. Candice also stood out as a vocal, emerging leader.' Williams made a terrific impact throughout camp, and should be a major contributor for Page over the foreseeable future. 

#66: 5'10 '23 Aisha Vaughn (North Mecklenburg)

Continuing onto a player who possesses the tools to simply continue getting better and better, Aisha Vaughn. She's a long, wiry, fairly high-motor forward prospect with toughness, defensive prowess, and rebounding instincts. Vaughn is able to move without the ball and find opportunities as a finisher or midrange shooter. She does a great job of battling for extra possessions and making hustle plays whenever possible. Next in her development process is working to become a more consistent three-point shooter, as it would make her a more dynamic offensive threat. Coach Nazario on Vaughn: 'Aisha plays hard. In order to play in the paint, she will need to be able to finish more consistently. She rebounded the ball well but probably could've gotten her hands on more. Aisha needs to also become more confident.' Vaughn displayed a variety of intriguing flashes during her time at camp, and will be a prospect to keep an eye on over these next two seasons at North Mecklenburg.

#70: 5'10 '25 Trista Charles (Oak Grove)

Next, we look at a player who showcased a pretty advanced arsenal of tools and ability, particularly for her age, Trista Charles. She's a smart, strong, versatile wing/forward prospect with excellent skill level and the ability to outwork opponents in all facets of the game. Charles is a lethal three-point shooter off the catch, but also finishes at a nice rate and moves effectively without the ball as a cutter. She's a terrific two-way rebounder with vision and a willingness to make the unselfish play whenever possible. Charles is a quality defender with the combination of motor, toughness, and strength to regularly overwhelm opponents. Next in her development process is working to become quicker, as it would make her an even better defender along the perimeter. Coach Nazario on Charles: 'Trista is a lefty, knockdown shooter from distance. She's long and active defensively. Unselfish with a high IQ and the ability to thrive in the screen-and-roll. She can get in better shape. Trista has so much potential; mid/high-major ability.' Charles was easily among the top prospect on display, and will be a prospect for college coaches to monitor over the coming years. 

#85: 5'8 '23 Shanya Drakeford (Legion Collegiate)

Finishing up, we look at a player who did a nice job of making her presence felt within the flow of the action, Shayna Drakeford. She's a strong, fairly active forward prospect with useful defensive instincts and the ability to make plays without requiring the ball in her hands. Drakeford does a solid job of doing the dirty work and outworking opponents on either end of the floor. Next in her development process is working to become a more consistent shooting threat, as it would make her a more complete player. Coach Nazario on Drakeford: 'Shanya didn't seem to be present at times. She rebounded the ball well and kept attacking throughout the course of the day. She's a good teammate and runs the floor well in transition.' Drakeford enjoyed a nice showing at camp and has the tools to continue developing over these next few seasons at Legion Collegiate.
