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 two of the 2015 post prospects that were at the camp. Note: Heights were measured at the camp without shoes.
Trevor Manuel, 6’9”, power forward (Lansing Sexton HS, MI)
This skilled 6’9” post stayed mostly out on the perimeter last year at this camp. This year although he is still relatively thin Manuel mixed it up more on the interior. The long and athletic four man was more assertive down low and even had a couple nice dunks in traffic. Will need to still add some more mass to play down low in college, but has tremendous tools.
Chimezi Metu, 6’9”, power forward (Lawndale HS, CA)
This long four man was impressive with the Oakland Soliders in the EYBL during the spring. He is long and athletic post that is all upside. Metu is a bit raw offensively and needs to add some weight, but he looks like he will continue to make strides in this area. He did knock down several 10-15 foot jumpers from the baseline. Defensively he is a plus shot blocker and a solid rebounder that will get better with added strength.
Jimbo Lull, 6’10”, center (Rolling Hills HS, CA)
Lull is a big and strong kid at 6’10” 242 pounds. He is a decent area rebounder. The rising junior is a bit limited athletically and needs to improve his hands down low. Project big, but can’t teach his size!
Jeremy Miller, 6’9”, center (New Hampton School , NJ)
Miller is a long and athletic post that is a good shot blocker and defender in the paint. He makes it a point to hit the glass and grab rebounds. Offensively Miller showed a glimce of an improving face up game. He also runs the floor like a deer getting points in transition.
Brad Brechting, 6’10”, center (Cedar Springs HS, MI)
The Michigan native is a skilled post that showed a nice hook shot and solid low post moves. He struggled a bit against bigger bodied defenders that pushed the thin center around.
Horace Spencer, 6’7”, power forward (William Tennent HS, PA)
Spencer is a wide shouldered and strong four man that is a plus rebounder. He was aggressive on the glass throughout the camp, but didn’t bring much offensively other than a couple slams in transition.
