Richard Barron III (2023/W/5’7/120/Chicago, IL) - Strong wing who used his body well attacking and finishing around the rim. Was really active all camp and consistently shot it well off the catch from the perimeter.

Maverick Binder (2023/G/4’8/95/Table Rock, NE) - Aggressive, crafty point guard who was productive all weekend. Displayed very good court vision and leadership. Has a nice stroke from all levels. Showed the ability to create shots for himself off the dribble anytime he needed.

David Delancy (2023/G/5’11/135/Pembroke Pines, FL) - Clearly one of the most natural athletes in camp. In certain spots, was the most the dominant and productive player without question. Strong handle and body with good court vision who finished and rebounded well in traffic. At times appeared bored on the court, and as he learns to keep his motor going from start to finish, he can be a very impactful prospect.
