ChicagoHoops and Hoops247 was one of a select few media outlets that were allowed to be in attendance for the prestigious Nike Elite 100 Camp all week. In this report we take a look at part one of the 2015 post prospects that were at the camp. Note: Heights were measured at the camp without shoes.
Moustapha Diagne, 6’7”, power forward (Pope John XXIII HS, NJ)
Diagne might have been the MVP of the camp if there was one. He was a complete beast on the boards grabbing one after another. His energy and activity level on the glass were unmatched at the camp. Diange finishes extremely strong and slams everything. I was also impressed with his ability to seal off his man over and over again before finishing with a dunk. Defensively he was tough around the basket and swatted shots. Huge weekend for this post player.
Skal Labissiere, 6’10”, power forward (Evangelical Christian HS, TN)
Labissiere is among the most skilled post prospects in the nation. He has advanced post moves at a young age with the ability to go over either shoulder, face up, or just power his way to the basket. The junior has a soft touch and shoots a high percentage with his touches. Labissiere is a plus passer out of the post that has a good feel for finding his teammates. Elite 2015 prospect.
Carlton Bragg, 6’7”, combo forward (Villa Angela – St. Joseph HS, OH)
Bragg is a physically imposing forward that can operate out of either the post or on the perimeter. His combination of strength and athleticism at his size make him a matchup nightmare. Bragg’s 15-18 foot jumper was falling for him from both the wing and baseline. He also had several powerful dunks throughout the camp. Bragg is a top 25 prospect nationally in 2015.
Chris Silva, 6’8”, power forward (Roselle Catholic HS, NJ)
Silva was the talk of the camp early on. The 6’8” 206 pound power forward has a strong and athletic body. He showed he is super bouncy around the basket finishing with monster dunk after monster dunk. Silva was assertive finishing on the glass where he put up big numbers. Prospect with considerable upside.
Noah Dickerson, 6’8”, power forward (North Atlanta HS, GA)
Dickerson is a big-bodied post that is a quality low post defender. He plays hard and has a motor. Dickerson is a space eater in the paint that rebounds well. Offensively he powers his way through his opponent.
