Reading, PA– Another full day has come and gone. A lot of guys making a case for all star and award nominations tomorrow. We might sound like a broken record, but this camp is stacked this week; no other way to put it. Here are the day three top performers.

Chris Baldwin | 2016 | Notre Dame Prep

Chris was as dominant as they come all week, let alone yesterday. The 6’8 big has great footwork and moves inside. He has the ability to play with either hand inside, making him a tough match up on the block. There were not many players, if any, who were more productive on offense than Chris, who holds offers from Pitt, LaSalle an UMass, among others.

Justyn Mutts | 2017 | St. Augustine Prep

Justyn has a great body at 6’6 with athleticism. Attributes like that make him deadly in transition, and that’s what Justyn was on Thursday. When he’s got open space, and momentum going to the basket, he is very hard to stop on offense. Defensively he brings great energy, applies tremendous pressure, and cleans up on the boards.

Tyrn Flowers | 2016 | Sacred Heart

Ty Flowers is a big time prospect. After a major growth spurt, he’s moved to the wing, where he possesses his guard like quality to kill defenders. Yesterday he was showcasing a great shooting ability, hitting shots off the dribble and making fadeaway jumpers look easy. Coaches need to stay on him.

Saul Phiri | 2016 | Putnam Science

He’s a big bodied wing with surprising versatility to his offensive game. Phiri showed the ability to be the primary ball handler at times on his team, and made a lot of good offensive moves off the dribble. He can use his large 6’5 frame to finish in the paint, and has range that stretches well beyond the three-point line.

Jake Kuhn; Walt Whitman; 2016

Talk about a winner, Kuhn hit big time shots all day, including a 40 foot game winner off the glass. He’s a tough 6’5 wing that can stretch the defense and draws contact often to get to the free throw line. He’s a good option as a secondary ball handler, and he can really fill it up when it gets it going.

Jerome Derosiers | 2017 | Northfield Mount Hermon

A 6’6 frame, strong build and great athleticism makes Jerome a treat to watch. He’s always a threat to put the ball on the floor and attack the rim. He’s able to muscle his way to the rim and create space for his shot in the lane. In transition, he’s equally as effective, playing above the rim and often ending plays with big time dunks.

Rasir Bolton | 2018 | Millwood

Regardless of age, this kid may be one of the best pure point guards in the entire camp. Bolton has a maturity beyond his years, and a knack for the game that just seems to come natural. He has terrific burst off the bounce, sees the play before it happens, can lock up defensively and is a threat to score from almost anywhere on the floor.

Aaron Wheeler | 2017 | St. Andrews

What a matchup nightmare. Wheeler is a 6’6 wing that likes to attack off the perimeter and scores the ball at all three levels. He’s not just skilled, but also athletic, and will light you up from deep before attacking and taking you off the bounce. He’s also good in transition, where he had more than a few big time finishes.

Donyell Marshall Jr | 2016 | Orange HS (OH)

Take about a shot block. Donyell Marshall Jr may be the best shot blocker at camp. While he measures in at 6’6, he has long arms and great timing on his blocks. He bails teammates out by denying shots at the rim constantly. He had at least three in a quarter multiple times this week. His play this week has also helped him gain an offer from Rider last night.

Jayden Gardner | 2018 | Heritage

Gardner has a never ending motor that allows him at 6’4 to bang down low with much bigger players. He rebounds well for his size, and is always around the basket ready for a stick in. He’s athletic and mobile, and runs the floor with the guards. He’s got an improving skill set that should bold well down the line for him.

Chase Audige | 2018 | Hill School 

Chase’s game is very smooth; he makes things look effortless out on the floor. He’s been making plays off the dribble for his team all week long. Sometimes he drives to score, attacking the rim and finishing with a eye opening lay in, or he will drive to pass, dumping it off to big men for easy dunks. His game has a lot of growing to do, but he has improved greatly over the past year.
