8:30AM- Campers are in the gym and ready to get the first full slate of games underway. Plenty of campers showed off some skills in the scrimmage sets yesterday, but now’s the time to really step it up and #BeElite. –@AndrewKoob

9:40AM- Stations are just about to wrap up and games are set to begin. This will be the first chance the campers get to really showcase their abilities in a game-like situation, there should be plenty of players stepping up their game throughout the day. –@AndrewKoob

10:15AM- The practices are now over and the games have begun! Now we get to see what these kids can do after they’ve received some great coaching in the morning session of practices and stations! Just another day to show everyone how to #BeElite! –@JakerBaker58

10:35AM- Click here to see some of the action from the outdoor courts during morning stations that was posted on our Facebook page. –@pfebbraro

11:05AM- Austin Harriot (Germantown Friends, Pa. 2016) and Omari Spelman (Middletown, N.J. 2016) have been a nice tandem for their team. They have shown great chemistry and have really complimented each other on the court. Harriot’s driving ability has opened up a number of lanes for him to drop off  passes to Spelman for easy dunks and layups around the rim.

11:38AM- Myles Douglas(Friends, Baltimore, MD, 2017) has looked very sharp this morning, making people forget that he is only a freshman. Douglas has a solid handle which he uses to get into the paint and also create separation to get a solid outside jumpshot. Time and time again, Douglas was able to hit three pointers because the defense had to respect his tremendous first step! Myles stands at 6 foot 3, with room to grow. He will certainly have a very impressive High School career, and hopefully he will come back to Elite Camps next summer! He has been a treat to watch and will only get better! –@JakerBaker58

12:25PM- Daniel Damico(Christian Brothers Academy, Syracuse, NY) has put together a strong afternoon, using athleticism and nice touch to score around the basket. The incoming freshman stands at 6 feet tall, but has a nice post game for a kid who hasn’t grown into his frame just yet. –@JakerBaker58

1:10PM- Jeffrey Coulter(Oneida High School, Oneida, NY) has had a very nice day shooting the ball for his squad. Jeff has used his inside-outside game to have the defense guessing, ultimately ending in a few outside attempts that were left unguarded. His smooth jump shot seems effortless, as the 6’2 incoming freshman seems like a really nice addition to Oneida’s basketball team. Coulter’s game has seemed effortless this afternoon. –@JakerBaker58

1:47PM- Alani Moore (Dematha (Md.) HS/5-9/2016) starred in his team’s 74-59 win during the day’s first game set. Mohammed Bamba (Cardigan Mountain (N.H.) School/6-7/2017) highlighted that game with a nice dunk off a feed from Daquan Bracey (St. Francis (Md.) Academy/5-8/2016). –@pfebbraro

2:20PM- The campers at Future All-American camp are in for a treat today, as they sit down and get a lecture about how to defeat your weaknesses and what it takes to become Elite! You only get the best here at the Hoop Group! –@JakerBaker58

3:05PM- Some surefire division-I prospects playing right now in the Bollman center. 2016 forward Joe Hampton (DeMatha, Md.) and 2016 forward Nazeer Bostick (Math, Civics & Science, Pa.) square off against 2016 forward Kaleb Bishop (St. Peter’s Prep, N.J.) and 2017 forward Myles Douglas (Friends School, Md.). This game is sure to provide some fireworks on the court. –@AndrewKoob

3:50PM- Sedee Keita(Vermont Academy, Saxtons River, VT) has been playing great interior defense, securing boards and rejecting shots left and right. But its not just his wingspan making the plays. Keita is using his strength to be the low man when defending the post man, pushing his man out of the paint by getting better leverage. He’s showing that there is more to defense than just physical tools by wearing down his opponent on both ends of the floor! –@JakerBaker58

4:33PM- According to Steve Keller (@SteveKellerNRR) of the National Recruiting Report, Unique McLean (Hoosac (N.Y.) School/6-1/2016) looks like he can hurdle a pickup truck. –@pfebbraro

5:18PM- D’Marco Baucum(Washington Jesuit, Washington, DC) has to be one of the most impressive Middle School players here. Only going into the 8th grade, Baucum is already 6’4 with game of a guard! D’Marco has a silky smooth outside shot and towers over the rest of the competition in the paint. As long as he sticks with it, there should be no reason why he isn’t a legitimate big time prospect in the next few years. –@JakerBaker58

6:03PM- Anthony Lamb(Greece Athena, Rochester, NY) continues is strong play here at the Hoop Group. Lamb has been to two of our Elite clinics, and even impressed among the older guys, so you can imagine how well he is performing against the younger competition. Lamb is very physically gifted and has the skills needed to be a top performer. Another one of the top prospects here at Future All-American Camp! –@JakerBaker58

6:55PM- We have plenty of action still to be played tonight, as many of these games will be critical to see who will make the Championship rounds on Wednesday morning. One player who is doing his best to make sure his team makes it is Alexander Schachne(Summit, NJ) who has been all over the floor, diving for loose balls and making all the gritty plays that his team needs in order to win. Every team needs a guy like Alex! –@JakerBaker58

7:53PM- There is no quit in Lonnie Walker’s (Reading (Pa.) HS/6-3/2017). As an opponent eased up thinking he was headed for an easy layup, Walker came from behind to record a nice block.

In an action up in the rec center, Thomas Oakley (Delaware Valley (Pa.) HS/5-9/2016) had a pretty drive and dish to set-up Markus Stevenson (Neumann-Goretti (Pa.)/6-1/2016) for an easy layup. –@pfebbraro

8:48PM- Isiah Carpenter (Notre Dame, N.J./6-7/2017) has been a force, using his long frame to be a menace in the paint. –@AndrewKoob

9:44PM- Games have wrapped up in the Bollman Center, thus ending an eventful day of basketball at the Future All-American camp. We’ll be back tomorrow at 8:30, ready for another full slate of basketball. –@AndrewKoob
