The 2015 NBPA Top 100 Camp, an annual event held at John Paul Jones Arena, begins next Wednesday, June 17, and runs through Saturday, June 20. Rosters have been revealed, and a number of University of Virginia recruits (commits and targets) are expected in Charlottesville next week.
Guy, Jerome Heading To Charlottesville
UVa class of 2016 combo guard commitments Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome are on the roster. Both players will look to continue the impressive play they have exhibited this spring. Don’t be surprised to see the duo suiting up for the same team next week, providing a preview of things to come at UVa.
Fellow Cavalier commit Jay Huff, a 6’10” forward, is not on the list.
Class of 2017 Point Guards
Coleman, who will attend Oak Hill Academy next year after spending his first two years at Maury High School (Norfolk, VA), has visited UVa numerous times. For Barcello (Corona del Sol HS in Phoenix, AZ) and Young (Norman North HS in Norman, OK), this will be the first time in the John Paul Jones Arena.
Young’s AAU teammate, 5-star small forward Michael Porter Jr., will also be at the NBPA Top 100. Porter, who is a good friend of commitment Kyle Guy, has said before that he plans to visit UVa this spring or summer, so perhaps he will stay on Grounds following the camp for an unofficial. We’ll certainly check in with him.
Class of 2016 Targets
The following uncommitted class of 2016 recruits have been offered by UVa and are expected in attendance:
UVa’s best chance from this group appears to be with V.J. King, a 6’6” Ohio native who attended Paul VI in Fairfax (VA) last year. King is also considering Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky and Louisville. He has taken official visits to U-Conn and Louisville.
We hope to catch up with King as well as UVa’s other targets next week, so stay tuned for those reports.
St. Anne’s-Belfield (Charlottesville, VA) forward Javin DeLaurier, a rising senior whose stock has risen significantly this spring in terms of rankings and college interest, has been invited to play in the NBPA Top 100 for a second consecutive year. Tony Bennett has not yet offered the 6’9” prospect, but I’m interested to see how far he has progressed as well as check in on where he stands with UVa.
