Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- There's nothing quite like a lasting impression, and several prospects played with the urgency of leaving a good impression on the media and coaches in attendance on the final day of the 2013 NBA Top 100 Camp. Here is who impressed us most.

One of the more unknown names nationally heading into the camp was Utah small forward Brekkott Chapman.Thanks to his showing this week, the 6-foot-8 small forward prospect will find himself as a top 100 prospect in our next rankings update. He shoots the ball extremely well, can handle it, and is a matchup nightmare. Personally, I love what he brings to the table, and it will be interesting to see what becomes of his recruitment after his big week in Virginia.

We caught a lot of heat last month when we decided to move Wisconsin forward Kevon Looney up to #2 in the rankings for the class of 2014, but this week has done nothing to discourage us from our decision. The 6-foot-8 face up four man is another matchup problem. He can shoot the ball, take his defender off-the- dribble, or use his strong frame to rebound and finish on the inside. 

Another prospect who has burst onto the scene this spring has been Brandone Francis, a native of the Dominican Republic. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard was creating for himself Saturday, taking his defender off-the-dribble and knocking down jump shot after jump shot. Another impressive aspect of his game is his ability to consistently get out in transition and score at the rim against contact. He made a living out of transition baskets this weekend, and was working hard on the defensive end as well.

Alabama center Isaac Haas put together his strongest day at the camp on Saturday. He wasn't used to the high level of competition, but once he got adjusted, he fared just fine against some big name post players. While his athleticism is a question mark, his rebounding and post moves are not. He also did a solid job of working hard for post position on offense. The 7-foot-2 big man may not play immediately at the next level, but he can become a very good center at the college level.

Tyler Dorsey is a YouTube sensation and he had one of those kind of days on the last day of the camp. The 6-foot-4 guard thrived in transition with some jaw-dropping passes to his teammates. With his size, the point guard has great vision to locate his teammates. While he showed off flashy no-look passes, he also showed he can run a team in the halfcourt and set his teammates up for better opportunities.

Another point guard that had an impressive outing on Saturday was Phil Booth. He wasn't as flashy as Dorsey, but plain and simple, he got things done as a combo guard. The 6-foot-3 guard did a nice job of playing on and off the ball, as he and interchanged with some teammates. Booth was reliable with his game and did not make bad decisions.

It wasn't on the main courts, but 6-foot-8 forward Ben Bentil had a nice game in the early morning. The Northeast product showcased the ability to his some mid-range jumpers; if that becomes consistent, he will become very deadly with his game, as that will be quite the arsenal with his ability to finish with contact at the rim.
