The Top 80 platform provides a stage for prospects to come out do their thing. Some prospects are able to make their name and breakout from the unknown against some of the top talent in the area. Some prospects are able to display progression in their games and show they have advanced to the next level. And some players are already ranked at a high level and are able to show their utter dominance on the floor.

As with all Top 80 events, elite prospects within the state showed up and many of them showed out. Here is a listing of 5 who made sure their name known.

 

6'10' 2020 Mark Williams
Norfolk Academy (Norfolk)

Perhaps the break out player of the camp. Williams is a national level talent, yet coming into the camp no one had heard of him. Well, now they have. Williams comes from a great basketball gene pool, so he comes by his skill naturally. He runs very well and has great hands, touch and coordination. His upside and ceiling are incredibly high as he looks to turn into a high caliber national level recruit.

6'10' 2020 Isaiah Todd
John Marshall HS (Richmond)

Todd very well may be the best prospect in high school basketball, that is regardless of class. Yes, that is lofty but he is that good. Todd is very long and carries great instincts. He has a great feel off the ball and is very efficient with the ball. He plays under control at all times and with great pace. His wing span is over 7', he is a very good athlete and has fluidity in all movements. He has a chance to be special.

 

6'6' 2018 Sardaar Calhoun
Blue Ridge (St George)

What a difference a year makes for Calhoun. He walks onto the court as a very lengthy wing with a great frame and athleticism. His development has come with his offensive feel. Calhoun showed great pace and confidence as a 3-level scorer. He was great in the mid-range, he didn't hit rim from beyond the arc and he showed big explosion when attacking the rim in transition. Calhoun has upside as a top level defender. He has turned into a high major shooting guard.

 

6'8' 2018 Tre King
Hargrave Varsity (Chatham)

Another player who came into the event without many people having seen him play. He left the Top 80 making sure everyone knew his name. King is a very strong and very athletic combo forward. Not really a small forward, not really a power forward he is just a player who produces and gets it done. King attacked every aspect of the game. He rebounded well, he got to the basket and finished well and he defended with purpose. Expected a recruiting boon coming soon.

 

6'6' 2018 Dereon Seabron
Lake Taylor (Norfolk)

Like Calhoun, Seabron has taken the next step in his game. Already carrying 4 low major offers, it is time Seabron starts to see an uptick. He is very long and has a great feel for being around the ball. He seemed to always come up with the loose ball or the deflection. Seabron has a solid wing handle as he got downhill with only 1 or 2 dribbles. Seabron showed to be a consistent 3-point shooter as well. There is still upside to go, but he is well on his way.
