Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- As expected, the 2017 NBPA Top 100 Camp put together an outstanding assemblance of talent. Coming into the event, it's always interesting to see who will stand out and separate themselves from their elite peers. On Wednesday, we had several names who shined.

Coby White Continues His Electric AAU Season

If you're looking for an alpha scorer in the 2018 class, the 6'4"  from North Carolina guard is showing that he's the guy. He finished the day second in the camp in scoring behind Simi Shittu, with an average of 20.0 points per contest. He showed that he's virtually unstoppable off-the-dribble and is easily one of the most impressive finishers in the country. If he can get his perimeter shot going this week, he's going to put up even bigger numbers, so stay tuned.

Simi Shittu Treats NBPA Like His Personal Playground

The 6'10" Canadian forward wasted no time in asserting himself at camp, and his numbers after the opening day were impressive. Putting up 23.0 points and 8.5 rebounds while playing against the most talented prospects in the country is no small feat, and he made it look easy Wednesday. What's more impressive is that he shows versatility to play on the wing some as well, making him an even more appealing prospect.

Nassir Little Continues To Rise On Rankings Boards

It's been a continual ascent for the 6'7" Florida wing, who has seen his stock rise steadily over the past year. It looks like he's really put on some good muscle over the past several months, and he wasted no time in asserting himself at camp. He's active around the rim, is an electric athlete, and has no trouble fighting on the glass for rebounds. While his numbers aren't eye-popping, expect him to gain steam as the week goes on. 

3 More NBPA Top 100 Camp Standouts From Wednesday:

While he came into the camp with very little national buzz behind his name, 2018 guard Antoine Davis showed out on Wednesday, thanks to his perimeter shooting and tough defense. It's no secret that he's a tireless worker who's constantly in the gym, and the results are showing. Big man David McCormack also put together a strong opening day at camp, averaging 13 points and 10 rebounds per game. His improved conditioning has turned him into a monster this AAU season, and his improvement should continue. While he's not looking to score, 2019 point guard Ashton Hagans is impressing with his lockdown defense and facilitating, as he's leading the camp in assists currently at seven per game.
