Dallas, TX (Future150) -- Contributions made by Rod Clark.

Dallas Camp introduced several new prospects from the Dallas-metro area, Oklahoma, and San Antonio.  

This camp was one of the strongest shooting camps of the season.  Sunday afternoon teams replied to made three-pointers with made three-pointers.  Once the players figured out which guys could shoot the offenses ran more smoothly.

The halfcourt 4-on-4 was won by Jalen N'Guessan, Deontray Stevenson, Edwin Cooper, and Chris Harris Jr.  They defeated a powerful Roydell Brown-lead squad in the finals.  

Other participants on the Brown's runners-up included Chase McMillan, Jeremiah Hudson, Udo Onyekwere, and Reece Gardner.

The exciting weekend wrapped with a Top 40 All-Star Game.  These were the players who earned their place.

Luis Rodriguez, 2019 PG, The Colony (Texas): The often-overlooked young guard, Rodriguez buried triple after triple this weekend.  He racked up 15 points in one quick fullcourt game.  His outside shot is great.  Until he grows he cannot legitemately be considered a college prospect, but the shooting skill is nudging elite.

Sebastian Rivas, 2017 PG, Forney (Texas): Rivas is an undersized guard capable of impacting a game with his outside shooting or dribbling.  He needs to be able to stop slashing guards from penetrating to see minutes beyond high school.  His shooting gives him a leg up on other lead guards.

JaLen N'Guessan, 2018 SG, Oklahoma City (Oklahoma): The combo guard has been competing for years with Future150.  His body is starting to fill out.  He brought nice strength to the gym.  His passing is ok.  Frankly, the one shortcoming for N'Guessan, as a passer is his lob.  He was really bad setting up alley-oops.  Otherwise, he is steady with the ball and can score in a variety of ways.

Steven Allison, 2018 SG, Seagoville (Texas): Allison is a long, rangy guard that has a silky smooth jumpshot that he had no problem displaying throughout the weekend. He often knocked down deep contested 3-pointers and countered that by attacking hard closeouts with beautiful mid-range pull-ups. Due to his lack of strength he sometimes had trouble finishing trough traffic, but with a promising amount of length and a very confident approach to the game look for him to be a sleeper guard in the 2018 class.

Ricky Jones III, 2019 PG, Yukon (Oklahoma): Jones III is a typical, quick ball-handler.  He can get beyond defenders with the dribble.  He sees the game well in the open floor, but has to involve more teammates once the game slows down.  Ricky was absolutely one of the best player son his 5-on-5 team.  He moves very well with the ball, but has to continue to be a threat when the ball is elsewhere.

Michkaleke Baker, 2018 PG, Aurora (Colorado): Baker is a nice passer.  He already shows a wonderful change of direction with the ball in his hands.  Baker has the poise a coach wants from the point guard position.  He played very well in the Top 40 Game especially.

Trenton Chambers, 2017 PG, Cedar Hill (Texas): The undersized guard, Chambers breezed through defenses.  He is quick with his penetration.  Chambers creates problems when he is dribbling, especially in the open floor.  When he gets into the lane he can finish, but the true test will be his ability score with contact against much bigger help-side defenders.

Fidel Anyabolu, 2019 CG, Oklahoma City (Oklahoma): Anyabolu is poised to be a strong leader.  He is vocal and likeable.  His athleticism is a plus.  Scoring off the dribble needs to improve.  He can defend his position.

Steve Gebremelecot, 2016 SG, Dallas (Texas): He was a long, lanky guard.  He can get to the rim.  He has to improve his already solid outside jumper.  Strength needs to improve.  Good passer.  Gebremelecot has a good understanding.  Handles are great.

Luke Cox, 2018 SG, Rockwall (Texas): Cox is an innovative passer with respectable shot mechanics.  He gets up the court quickly and tries very difficult passes.  His agility is good.  Cox needs better strength and to improve his handles overall.  He might be able to play point guard with development in the right areas.

Trent Cannon, 2018 PG, DeSoto (Texas): Cannon brought great hair and emerging skills to the camp.  His passing is steady.  Cannon can shoot, but doesn't demand the ball.  He is patient and reliable on the ball.  Cannon's game will take off once he adds strength and quickness.  Both are reasonable to expect in the coming years.

Nathan Pendarvis, 2017 PG, Oklahoma City (Oklahoma): Pendarvis was a sneaky good player.  The young man looks more like a wing than a point guard.  Still, he elegantly slithered through traps.  His grace around the rim is special.  Pendarvis impressed Coach Rod Clark with his ability to score in bunches.

Tyreke Causey, 2018 PG, Austin (Texas): Tyreke might have been one of the most competitive guards in camp and did not back down from any challenge that was thrown his way. Causey is a jet-quick guard, that excels in the open floor getting to the rim for acrobatic finishes from different angles. He must work on limiting his turnovers as he gets older as he was a bit loose with the ball at times.

Michael Tate, 2017 SG, Cypress (Texas): Tate's shot release is fantastic.  He releases from very high.  It takes a whisper of time for Tate to catch and release.  High-end athlete.  Tate scores mid-range jumpers non-stop.  Tate can create his own shot.  He has a developed body for scoring in traffic.  He really care score anyway you want inside of 12’.  He is not that good on challenged triples.  His form is good, but he is not much of a leaper from the perimeter.  This could be a quick fix.  If you look at his mid-range you see what his outside shot could become.  He jumps really well inside 13’.   Really quick, high release.  

Regan Newell, 2018 SG, Bedford (Texas): Newell is a very lanky outside shooter.  He does bring ideal height to the table.  Newell's downfall will be his thin arms and weak upper body.  If he invests time in filling out he could play beyond high school.  His shooting is very good.  The slashing has evolved in the recent months.

Jaurice Brown, 2016 SG, Dallas (Texas): Brown was an exceptional on-ball defender.  He slides his feet and defends with his chest.  Brown is an accomplished athlete.  He is a 6-foot-2 guard capable of playing either guard position.  His outside shooting needs to improve.  Right now Brown can score off the dribble, either shooting or getting all the way to the rim.

Rowdy Yates, 2016 PF, Boswell (Oklahoma): The most active player at camp was Rowdy Yates.  He dove for loose balls and hounded attackers in the post.  Yates did not show much shooting range.  His energy around the rim was difficult to stop though.  Rowdy has to develop a little tighter handle, because his height suggests a transition to the wing is mandatory.

Dailon Little, 2018 PG, Milwaukee (Wisconsin): Little might have displayed the best court vision and passing skills in the camp.  Not only is he quick and capable with the dribble, but he also is very good at executing the passes he envisions.  Little's outside shot was amongst the best too.  Strong showing for the young guard.

Curtis Rice, 2019 SG, Oklahoma City (Oklahoma): Rice is an energetic, versatile wing.  With a high work rate, Rice competes all over the floor.  He can shoot decently off the dribble.  He needs to tighten his handle.  Physically, RIce is ahead of his peers.

Noah Rodriguez, 2018 PG, San Antonio (Texas): The 6-foot-1 scorer played very well during the Dallas Camp.  Elite shooter.  Noah scores in bunches.  He probably would be better served off the ball, but 6-foor-1 is not the ideal size for SG.  Noah cannot be left open.  Rodriguez needs more upper body strength for certain. 

Monroe Darragh-Harris, 2019 PG, Oklahoma City (Oklahoma): Congratulations to Monroe for making his second Top 40 All-Star Team of the year.  Darragh-Harris is slippery and very quick.  His size will be the one thing limiting his potential.  He expects to reach 6-foot-2.  If he does the world opens up for him.  Now a freshman Harris needs to start getting stronger in his upper body.  Basketball has now become a very physical game and he will lose a lot of battles if he gets overpowered.  Outside shooting and court vision are strengths.
