Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- The National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Top 100 Camp will be tipping off with games on Thursday morning on the campus of the University of Virginia.

The camp will be bringing in the majority of the most talented prep basketball prospects in the country, and Future150 will be on hand to cover the action all weekend.

While it was hard to narrow down the list of prospects who we wanted to see most, here are eight who we are most intrigued by...

Devin Booker, the top prospect in the state of Mississippi in the 2014 class, will be under the microscope this weekend. Our analysts aren't completely in agreement of just how good he can become, and a big performance by him at the NBPA Top 100 Camp will go a long way in solidifying his status as top 20 player. 

The class of 2016 will only have only one prospect in our top 10 represented at the camp this weekend, and that is Thon MakerThe 7-foot big man has had a big spring, and he could prove to be undervalued at number four in our latest rankings. He will be fighting an uphill battle this weekend, playing against some of the premiere big men in the country.

Two of those big men, Skal Labissiere and Stephen Zimmerman, have been picking up steam as top five prospects in the 2015 class of late. Both big men use their high skill level and athleticism to frustrate opposing post prospects, and it will be fun to see how Maker adjusts to playing more mature big men.

Fresh off visiting the University of Florida this week and receiving a scholarship offer from Billy Donovan, Alabama's Riley Norris comes into the camp with a full head of steam. He's currently ranked #40 in our junior rankings, and has proved his worth as a prospect all spring.

Utah star T.J. HawsLone Peak High School's junior stud, is one of the most fun kids to watch at the prep level. The 6'3" wing has smooth ball skills, and uses a crafty game to score in a variety of ways. The #58 prospect in the United States could rise into the top 50 by the end of summer. 

Huntington Prep (WV) will ease the pain of losing Andrew Wiggins with the addition of perhaps the hottest point guard in the country over the past few weeks, Colorado native Josh Perkins. The 2014 floor general has the buzz of being the most gifted passer in the country, and we are excited to see just how much he has improved over the past year. 

Another point guard who could create significant buzz during camp play is Aquille Carr clone Damontrae Jefferson. The 2015 prospect is an absolute blur in the open floor and is one of the most fun kids to watch in the country.

Stay tuned to Future150 over the coming days with updates from the NBPA Top 100 Camp.
