Reading, PA (Future150) -- The 2016 Hoop Group Future All-American Camp kicked off with action on Thursday night, and several prospects showed out in front of Future150 staff, featuring a blend of familiar and unfamiliar names outside of the Northeast region.

Cole Anthony, 2019 PG: The 6'2" New York City lead guard was electric from the opening tip on Thursday night. He dazzled onlookers with his blend of open-floor speed and spectacular ball skills. He also showed off his athleticism with a few highlight-reel slams and a few emphatic blocks on the break. He has exactly what we look for in an elite level lead guard.

James Bishop, 2019 PG: Standing in the 6'1" range with long limbs, the sleek scoring lead guard was impossible to contain on Thursday night. He got to the rim at will, where he finished above and around defenders using excellent body control. He also amped up the pressure on the defensive end, which led to several fast break finishes, showcasing his open-court speed in the process.

Jake Betlow, 2019 G: One of the hottest names of the summer on the east coast has been the 6'2" guard. His ability to create off-the-dribble, as well as his perimeter shooting, were eye-openers on the opening night of action. Headed to Montverde Academy (FL) for his sophomore season, his name should translate from regional to national recruit while playing some of the best teams from across the nation this winter.

Idan Tretout, 2019 G: After reclassifying and transferring to Wilbraham & Monson Academy (MA) in July, he wasted no time in asserting himself at Future All-American Camp. The 6'3" guard was impressive on the offensive end Thursday night. He got the basket whenever he wanted, and finished several plays with above-the-rim theatrics. Expect to see a major boost in his recruitment as we head into the 2017 calendar year.

Kahlil Whitney, 2019 SF: One of the rising stars in Chicago for the past few years, the 6'6" small forward made waves this summer when it was made public that he would be relocating to New Jersey to play for powerhouse program Roselle Catholic this winter. What they can expect from their new star is a high-motored superior athlete who tries to tear down the rim every chance he gets. He has solid ball-skills in the open floor as well, making him an even more dangerous prospect.

Josh Pierre-Louis, 2019 PG: The first thing we noticed about the New Jersey prospect is that not only does he look a bit taller, but quicker and more explosive as well. There wasn't a guard who could check the 6-footer on Thursday night, and he was scoring around the rim whenever he wanted. From our last viewing of him in April until now, there has been significant improvements made.

Precious Achiuwa, 2019 SF: One of the highest-profile recruits in his class already, the 6'7" small forward is an explosive, multi-faceted small forward. He showed that when he's engaged, he's a force to be reckoned with. As the competition level rises, expect him to assert himself more consistently, showing just how incredibly talented the New Yorker is.
