READING, Pa. -- The Hoop Group opened the July evaluation period in its customary fashion: by hosting one of the biggest exposure basketball camps in the United States with more 800 campers converging on Albright College this week for session II of the Hoop Group Elite Camp.
While the sheer size of the camp attracts coaches from all levels of college basketball, what really differentiates this camp are the players themselves. Although there was a fair share of big names in the field, a consistent theme was the desire for players to prove themselves in front of college coaches. As a result, this turned into an ideal venue to spot under-the-radar and young talent.
Here were the top performers from the Hoop Group Elite Camp, including big-name players, under-the-radar stars and the top underclassmen.
