Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- The big news of the evening session on Friday at the NBA Top 100 camp was the grand entrance of Karl Towns. However, when all the smoke cleared by night's end, it was a list of other prospects who stole the headlines. 

One of the more reliable guards of the weekend has been Maryland-commit Romelo Trimble. The 6-foot-3 floor general led his team with impressive and consistent play from the tip to the buzzer. He continuously put his teammates in better situations in the halfcourt, as well as keeping the defense honest by knocking down several three-pointers. Terrapin fans will really enjoy this kid in the future.

It may have taken a couple of games, but Dwayne Morgan came to life during Friday night's evening session. The future UNLV Runnin' Rebel was very impressive with his athleticism, especially in transition. At 6-foot-6, he was getting into the lane and finishing with coontact. It was easily one of the better showings the wing man has had this AAU season.  

We are ready to make the claim. Derrick Jones is the best prospect in the state of Pennsylvania, regardless of class. The 6-foot-6 small forward was hitting shots from the outside during the Friday evening session. The rising junior also rebounded the ball well and finished around the rim with both hands. Most impressive part of his game? His athleticism. He may have the two best dunks of the camp to date...and we are all ready to see what he has in store for his last day in Charlottesville.

Leron Black continues to push his way towards an impressive camp. After a strong first day, the 6-foot-8 forward responded with another nice outing. Leron did what Leron does best, using his athleticism and strength to stick out. He hit the boards for several easy put-backs; however, he also showcased his shooting with a couple of mid-range and three-point shots.   

Alabama small forward Riley Norris had his breakout game of the camp in the evening session. The 6'7" small forward was hitting his outside shots, which we are used to. However, his ability to take his defender off-the-dribble and score at the rim had onlookers impressed. His rebounding and defensive were also impressive. 

The potential for Skal Labissiere continues to blast throughout the roof. The 7-footer has so much skill, yet he still has room to grow as a basketball player. He used his length to block and contest shots and the rim, and he also succeeded with his shooting from the mid-range. Labissierre is just scratching the surface with his game and he will be one of the top players in his class.
