Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- A collection of the best players in the country assembled at John Paul Jones Arena on the University of Virginia this week for the prestigious NBA Top 100 Camp. 

The first session gave Future150 staff the opportunity to see several prospects who have eluded us during the spring. Here is who stood out to the staff....

The big, wide body of Elbert Robinson definitely made an impression on the staff in his first game action. He used his wide body to clear out space in the post, where he executed a couple of nice post moves and converted for buckets. 

Chris Chiozza, a Florida Gators commit, continued his strong play this AAU season during the first session of games. His elite quickness and instincts gave him an edge on the floor, and his fearlessness when attacking the hoop gave defenders fits. When all was said and done, he has validated his top 20 status.

Georgia native and 2015 small forward Kejuan Johnson played a solid game in his first outing during the camp. He rebounded the basketball at a high level and was running the floor for easy scoring opportunities. Most importantly, he is continuing to improve his overall game. 

Kelly  Oubre showcased an impressive offensive arsenal, as he proved he has the ability to score on all three levels. In three consecutive possessions, the 6-foot-5 wing knockdowned a three-pointer, converted on a little mid-range jumper in the lane, and capped off an alley-oop. He is gifted offensively and will only improve.

One of the youngest prospects in attendance was Indiana's Caleb SwaniganThe 6-foot-9, 260-pound mammoth post prospect played an outstanding first game. He used his frame to carve out space for himself, and showed impressive footwork in the post. He also finished everything around the rim. 

While he only claims an offer from Chicago State currently, he has interest from schools coast to coast, including the likes of Ohio State, Miami (Fl), and Georgetown.

Arguably the most impressive prospect in attendance was Georgetown-commit Isaac Copeland. The 6-foot-9 rangy forward played extremely hard and was constantly playing above the rim. He was very active on the boards and grabbed plenty of rebounds to separate himself from the rest.
