Future 150 Camp: Houston
HOUSTON- At the latest Future 150 Camp relatively unknown prospect Nick Shepard made a strong impression with his inside/outside scoring game. Also capping off a summer of solid play was high major point guard target K.C. Ross-Miller.
K.C. Ross-Miller (2010-Brandon Bass Elite)- This physical point guard loves to seek out contact in the lane when attacking the basket. His ability to knock down midrange jumpers stood out during the camp. He will be taking an unofficial visit this coming weekend to Cincinnatti, with Marquette and Ohio State the following weekend. His offers include South Florida, Alabama, Cincinnati, DePaul, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Marquette and Auburn. Georgetown is showing interest.
Nick Shepard (2010-Houston Lynx)- A 6-foot-8, 220-pound power forward, Shepard was the surprise of the camp. His ability to score with his back to basket and facing up from the perimeter make him a dangerous offensive threat. He is also a formidable shot blocker on the defensive end. Bradley, Long Beach State, UCF and Tulane have all offered, and he has interest from Texas A&M, Miami and Marquette.
Jonathan Thomas (2010)- The 6-foot-1, 170-pound point guard scored from all three levels. Also a tenacious defender, Thomas defended multiple positions. Thomas, who has a Louisiana-Monroe offer, is taking a prep year at Houston Christian Life.
Sheldon McClellan (2010-Houston Select)- The four-star shooting guard displayed a nice stoke from the outside. The Texas commit has the ability to impact the game in more ways but didn't always have the concentrated effort during the camp to do so.
Darius Johnson (2012-LA Bayou Flames)- The 6-foot-3, 180-pound combo guard looks the part of a high major prospect. His strong frame allows him to guard bigger players and finish at the rim. Johnson has a great change of pace to his game as he scores from all three levels on the floor.
Fred Richardson (2012- S.W.A.G) the 6-foot-5, 190 pound small forward was very impressive with the ball in his hands. He has the ability to score both off the dribble and from behind the three-point line.
Alton Tanner- (2011-Houton Elite)- The 6-foot-7, 200 pound small forward is a long rangy player with a ton of talent. Offensively he is an inside/outside scoring threat. He is just as versatile defensively with his length and athleticism.
Toddrick Gotcher- (2011-LBA Seawolves)- A long shooting guard, Grotcher has a quick first step and great leaping ability as he attacks the basket. Grotcher also made his fair share of three-point field goals. He has offers from Texas Tech, UNC-Wilmington and has interest from Alabama, Missouri, UConn, SMU and Baylor.
Leslee Smith-(2010-Houston Select)- A big bodied power forward, Smith was a force inside during the camp. His ability to score and block shots placed him amongst the top camp performers. Besides scoring in the post, Smith also stepped out and knocked down jumpers. His offers include USC and Texas Tech.
Deangelo Harrison (2011-Houston Select)- An explosive combo guard, Harrison aggressively attacked the rim and finished during the camp. He also effectively scored from the perimeter. Defensively, he played at a high level as well. His offers include Missouri and Oklahoma State. Texas A&M, Oregon and Marquette are also recruiting him.
Quince Jackson (2010-Texas Bluechips)- The 5-foot-11, 165-pound point guard used his quickness and strength to get to the rim at will during the camp. A great competitor, Jackson projects as a quality mid-major point guard.
Alex Davis (2011- Franchize All-Stars)- The 6-foot-8, 190-pound power forward was another top surprise of the camp. Long and skilled, Davis impressed with his court vision and passing. He also scored the ball consistently inside the arc.
Kevin Williams (2010- Houston Elite)- The 6-foot-1, 180-pound point guard was the best passer at the camp. Strong with the basketball, he was a solid decision maker who avoided negative plays while producing positive plays. Williams has a Colorado State offer, but has his eyes set on playing in the Big East.
Lance Bernard (2012-HP Elite)- Bernard, who is a 6-foot-1 combo guard, was the best shooter at the camp. He consistently made shots off the bounce and catch.
Carl Colberson (2012- S.W.A.G)- The 5-foot-11 point guard made shots from all three levels and handled the ball efficiently in traffic during the camp.
