Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- The 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp kicked off on Wednesday afternoon on the campus of the University of Virginia. Nationally touted prospects in the classes of 2017, 2018 & 2019 battled against one another in one of the most unique settings in all of prep basketball. Below are a list of standouts from the second session of action on Thursday.

Daniel Gafford, 2017 PF: The future Arkansas Razorback came out showing his teeth on Friday afternoon. In a matchup with coveted 2019 big man Chol Marial, he was simply dominant, scoring 19 points, grabbing seven rebounds & blocking three shots. What separates him from most other big men in his class is the energy he brings at all times, which was on full display here, as he was barking consistently throughout the game.

Isaiah Washington, 2017 PG: It's taken a few days, but the New York City point guard is settling in nicely. Today, he filled the stat sheet to the tune of 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds, while showing that he's one of the most gifted passers in the rising senior class. 

Bol Bol, 2018 PF: I'm not sure that there's been a more unique prospect that I've scouted in the five or so years I've been doing this. At 6'11", he has an incredibly fluid skill set, with ability to work in the post as well as on the perimeter. His length is unreal, giving him ability to be a standout defender as well. It will be interesting to see how much weight he can put on his frame going forward.

Tyler Herro, 2018 G: A talented combo guard at 6'5", the Wisconsin native was impressing today with his ability to score the basketball. Not only is he dangerous in catch-and-shoot situations, but he was crafty when working off-the-dribble as well. When working from the point guard spot, he's certainly one of the more interesting prospects in the sophomore class.

Remy Martin, 2017 PG: The recent Arizona State commit clearly hasn't taken his foot off the gas since cementing his college plans, as he's brought his usual energy to the floor every time out this week. Martin constantly puts pressure on the defense off the dribble, looking to get in the lane whenever he can to create for teammates or finish at the rim. A capable jump shooter as well, it looks like he could contribute immediately in Tempe with his energy and competitiveness alone.

Jordan Usher2017 SG: Playing alongside a couple top-notch point guards in Jaylen Hands and Tremont Waters, this 6'7" wing has taken full advantage of the opportunity. Usher has been particularly impactful in transition, where he can spot up for 3-pointers or finish acrobatically near the basket. In the halfcourt, he's able to use his elite size on the wing to consistently elevate over smaller defenders and get his shot off.
