Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- With the 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp in the rearview mirror, it's time to take a look back at some of the positional standouts from the event. Today, Future150 takes a look at the crop of floor generals from the event, a position that was particuarly stout. 

North Carolina PG Raises The Stakes

Coming into this week, Devon Dotson had a signficiant amount of hype behind his name, especially on the east coast. After the week was over in Charlottesville, he proved that it was warranted. A strong 6'2", his game is built on skill, not athleticism, which is just fine. Schools like Kentucky & North Carolina have been in contact within the past week, showing you just how talented the Team Charlotte lead guard is. He was top 10 in the camp in assists, while chipping in 9.8 points per game. 

New Yorker Brings Flare to NBPA

One of the prospects who really shook up the camp was 6'1" flashy point guard Isaiah Washington. The New York City native filled the stat sheet to the tune of 10.7 points, 4.7 assists & 1.5 steals per game while keeping his turnovers down. Today, he's visiting Minnesota, which would be a huge coup for the B1G school. 

Despite Knocks On His Size, Waters Plays On

Tremont Waters has heard the doubters for years. Fans & media alike have questioned his size and how his game would continue to project as he got older and played better competition. Well, the 5'11" lead guard once again proved that he's an elite point guard in the 2017 class. He led the camp in assists at 5.6, was second in steals at 2.2 and also showed his scoring ability at 9.7 points per game. Oh, and he was named co-MVP of the camp. Excellent week by the Northeast native.

Other PG Standouts:

  • Jaylen Hands - A sneaky athlete at 6'3", the UCLA commit couldn't be controlled off-the-dribble & left the camp as an unquestioned elite point guard in his class.
     
  • Alex Barcello - A model of consistency at camp, averaging 10.8 points, 2.8 rebounds & 2.3 assists per game. Also shined on the defensive end with 1.3 steals per game.
     
  • Nick Weatherspoon - A blend of power, athleticism & skill, the Mississippi native is rising up ranking boards fast, and with good reason. UNC is one of many high-major programs in pursuit.
     
  • Christian PoPoola - It's so hard not to love the 6'4" Nevada product. He's an old-school PG with a complete game as a two-way player. His stock continues to rise.
     
  • Paul Scruggs - Averaged 12.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists & 1.8 steals per game. Complete player with excellent size (6'3"), strength & athleticism.
