Read: USA Men's Junior National Team Oct Mini Camp Day 1 - Notes, Recaps, & more...

*Cream rises to the top and Evan Mobley (7', 198lbs, 2020) is ranked #1 for a reason. He was dominant throughout the day and showed off his IQ, footwork, and skill.

*Jalen Green (6-5, 175lbs, 2020) is the smoothest wing in the country, and his play in Colorado Springs reflects that claim. He can get wherever he wants in the floor, has great body control, can finish with either hand at the rim, and is an elite athlete. One of the most impressive things about Green continues to be his ability to make the right play and run on a tremendous motor - rare elements for an elite scorer.

*Greg Brown III (6-8, 185lbs, 2020) is from another planet. He is as fluid an athlete as we have ever seen at his height. He jumps out of the gym and had the small crowd in an uproar with his array of lobs, tip dunks, and dunks in transition. He also demonstrated his ability to knock down the three, put the ball on the floor in the half court, and change directions to get by defenders.

*Chet Holmgren (7-0, 190lbs, 2021) is a name that you will continue to hear more of with every stage he plays on. The versatile 6’11 is thin as h continues to grow, but he plays much stronger than his frame. He's an adept ball handler that can shoot the three, and he has as much upside as anyone  in Colorado Springs, CO.

*Keon Johnson (6-4, 183lbs, 2020) has played very well. The Tennessee commit has a Ja Morant flare to his game. He is an elite athlete who is a blur on both ends of the court and he had the dunk of the day in the area of Evan Mobley. He could end up one of the kids not ranked in the Top 20 who sneaks into the McDonald's game and ends up SEC Freshman of the year.
