This was our first time in Fayetteville running a girls exposure camp. We were not sure what to expect, but true to form the talent was off the charts. Especially with the guards, they made for some very competitive match ups with differing styles.
A lot of Division 1 and Division 2 talent was in the gym and the 50 or so girls who were there got tons of exposure to go along with their incredible attitudes and effort.
Here are the standouts of the camp…
5’3” 2020 Ja-el Miller
Central Cabarrus (Concord, NC)
Millers plays an unbelievably exciting game. She gets where she wants off the bounce and she deliver pen point passes to teammates at all angles. She showcased deep range, from well beyond the arc with confidence in that shot. Only a sophomore it will be exciting watching her grow as the D1 schools begin to recruit her.
6’1” 2021 Desiree Smith
Trinity Christian (Fayetteville, NC)
Smith plays with a great motor and spectacular athleticism. She seemed to always be around the ball, on both ends of the floor. Smith, the younger sister of Dallas Mavs rookie Dennis Smith Jr, is still raw but has all the intrigue and tools to look for. Only a freshman, with great size, watch as she continues to grow in her game, the natural tools are glaringly present.
6’1” 2020 Somer Wilson
Comenius School (Charlotte, NC)
Wilson may have been the best prospect in the camp. A true 6’1” wing, she handled the ball, rebounded well and shot it with confident range. She has very long arms and an athletic frame, Wilson played very confidently in this event. She has prospect written all over her and, only a sophomore, she should create quite the recruiting buzz as she continues to get older.
5’10” 2021 Braylyn Milton
Independence HS (Charlotte, NC)
While Wilson may have been the best prospect, it is Milton who may have the most upside of any player in camp. The lengthy wing showcased all the tools necessary to turn into a high profile prospect. She shot the ball well, she runs the floor well, has a great handle and also has the look of a young lady who is not done growing. Her brother Raja was a starter for the Independence boys basketball team, so basketball is in the family. Watch her closely, a lot to like about the future here.
5’7” 2019 Makayla Kimble
Village Christian (Fayetteville, NC)
Kimble plays the game with a certain flair. She has a throw back confidence and a toughness and handle that reminds of the days when games were crafted on the playground. She has a quick first step, able to touch the paint often and she shot the ball fairly well from beyond the arc and in the mid range. Like her as a tough and gritty lead guard, also like her as a D1 prospect who will most certainly help a team.
