Nashville, TN (Future150) -- The Future150 Camp was back in the state of Tennessee for the 3rd year in a row on September 17th and 18th in Nashville's second appearance. The camp took place at the A-Game Sportsplex which is one of the top basketball complexes in the Southeast. Last year’s camp had the likes of Jarnell Stokes, Nick King, and Austin Nichols.
The 2011 edition was comprised of some of the top young talent and several unknown talents who have not hit the radar from Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana. The F150 Top 20 game was headlined by Jamontae Davis (2013), Rob Marberry (2014), and Chris McNeal (2015). The game was a heated battle as the Blue team squeaked out a close victory after building a huge lead early in the second half 78-76 over the White Team. Here is a list of the top performers in the camp.
Top Camp Perfomers:
Donovan Halsel-(2012-Warren Central-Bowling Green, KY) the 6-foot-1 inch combo guard was pretty much unstoppable all weekend long. He shot the ball from mid range the most consistent of any player at the camp. He has the speed and quickness to go along with good ball handling skills to play both guard positions. He showed a high basketball IQ and proved that he can get to the rim in transition and the half court while finishing with contact. Halsel is extremely under recruited due to he did not play AAU and is a diamond in the rough for any mid major D1 school looking for a combo guard.
Jamontae Davis-(2013-Hillsboro-Madison, TN) the 6-foot-7 inch SF was one of the nicest surprises the camp has seen in a while. He is long, athletic and extremely skilled on the offensive end of the floor. He loves to score from mid range and proved he can knock down the 3-point shot as well. He is a presence on defense as he uses his length to affect a lot of shot around the rim. He rebounds well on both ends and likes to block shots coming from the weak side. Davis has offers from MTSU, Lipscomb, and Belmont.
Chris McNeal-(2015-South Side-Jackson, TN) the 5-foot-10 inch PG was the brightest young talent in the camp, only a freshman but you would not know from the way he ran the show.
