Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- On Wednesday morning, game action began at the 2014 NBA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, Virginia at John Paul Jones Arena. Much like last year, the event is absolutely loaded from top to bottom, featuring the best prospects nationally in the classes of 2015, 2016 & 2017. During session one, several highly regarded big men were some of the standouts from the morning.

De'Ron Davis, 2016 PF, Overland (CO): The 6-foot-8 power forward continues to validate our high ranking of him. He was abusing defending post players with his versatility on the floor, scoring from the post all the way out to the three-point line. He ran the floor extremely well and finished a few plays with big dunks. 

Tevin Mack, 2015 SG, Dreher (SC): The 6-foot-6 wing is an absolutely lethal scorer, and he has shown that with his performance so far at camp. He has excellent body control and finishes well around the rim. He also has gained upper body strength and is effective posting up smaller defenders as well. Currently, we have rim ranked as the #46 prospect nationally, and that ranking may be a bit too low.

Eron Gordon, 2016 SG, North Central (IN): The 6-foot-2 shooting guard is a born scorer who is at his best when he is playing downhill. He proved that during session one at NBA Camp, where he showed that he's an excellent finisher when attacking the basket. He was also effective in transition and is becoming an impressive on-ball defender as well. 

Tacko Fall, 2015 C, Liberty Prep (FL): Simply dwarfing everyone else at camp, the 7-foot-5 center had an impact at both ends of the floor during game action. He rebounded well and flushed several dunks after gathering himself in the paint. On defense, when he wasn't blocking shots, he was altering several more due to his sheer size. He could be pushing for a spot in the national rankings if he keeps his level of play up, and high major schools are tracking him closely.

Malik Beasley, 2015 SG, St.Francis (GA): Beasley continues to put points up in a hurry, scoring on all three levels. He gets to the rim at will and is a springy athlete. It's easy to see why he has rocketed into the rankings, as few people were able to slow him down. He is also a good defender with decent length, making him one of the more sought after players going into this summer. 

Skal Labissiere, 2015 PF, Evangelical Christian (TN): Skal is finally 100% after coming off a season ending injury last fall, and it shows. He can score from deep and in the post. In the high post he is nearly automatic. In addition, he runs the floor well and is a good shot blocker. If he continues to add more strength to his frame he will be very hard to deal with.

Stephen Thompson Jr., 2015 SG, Bishop Montgomery (CA): He continues to shoot the the ball well from beyond the arc as well as put the ball on the floor. There has been a major improvement on the defensive end of the ball and it looks as though he has added strength as well. 

Thon Maker, 2016 PF, Carlisle (VA): Maker continued to show why he is one of the top players in his class. He can score inside and on the perimeter and continues to become more comfortable with the ball in his hands. He is also a talented sho- blocker who runs the floor well and plays hard on both ends.
