All Canada Prospect Camp Recap
Published by Gilbert Muako on August 19, 2009
PHASE 1 and Nike Canada held the 4th annual All Canada Prospect Camp for Boys. Around a hundred invited athletes received the opportunity to showcase their talents before varies of coaches from the CIS, CCAA and NCAA. The event ran smoothly and was a success.
Duane Notice/6’2”/PG-SG/2013/School-St. Mikes
At only 14, Duane Notice posses a man’s body. Age is clearly not a factor. Despite being the second youngest, Notice was without question one of the best players in the camp. This young prospect is a well-rounded player, and has impressive play making abilities. He showed improvement on his outside shooting, however could use some work on shooting off the bounce. He also needs to work on attacking with the left hand which he tends to shy away from. Duane is arguably the top player in his class and will dominate the Canadian High school basketball scene for years to come.
Lucas Nugteren/ 6’10”/C/2010/School-
Going into camp, Lucas Nugteren’s name was unheard of; but after his strong play Nugteren will be one the big men in the 2010 class to keep tabs on. He has a wide body (275lbs) and runs the floor well. Nugteren attempts to finish strong at the rim and can knock down the short jumper when given enough time. On the defensive side he’s pretty solid. He slides his feet well, and clogs up the lane with his huge frame making it difficult to finish at the basket.
Nicholas Lewis/6’1”/PG/2012/School- Pope John Paul II
Another young Canadian point guard to look out for… It seems Lewis has improved his overall athletics. He seemed faster, quicker, and even attempted some surprising dunks over taller defenders while drawing the contact. He also tightened up his handles and showed that he is at his best when running and creating on the open court. He has a high arc on his outside shot that hits nothing but mesh. A talented Point Guard, stay posted on this young star.
Negus Webster-Chan/SF/2012/School-Pope John Paul II
This real thin and long prospect showed sign of filling up at 1-3 positions on the court. Webster-Chan is a versatile player with a laid back attitude. He enjoys dishing like a point guard. He penetrates, sucks in the defense and kicks out to the open man. However, it would help if he could get lower on the drive to be more explosive. Webster – Chan could be a lock down defender if he uses his gifted length and quickness to his advantage.
Nikolas Stauskas/6’4”/Position-SG/Class-2012/School-Loyola S.S.
Stauskas has had a very successful summer on the AAU circuit. Division 1 schools are already showing interest in this promising young talent. He played impressively throughout the camp, being one of the best scorers. Stauskas has good stroke from the outside and shoots the ball at a high percentage using a variety of moves to get to the basket. Stauskas is still getting use to the major growth spurt he’s had in the past year. Look out for this young talent in the future.
Jerome Brown/6’3”/SG/2009/School- Eastern Commerce C.I.
Brown has a strong athletic build which he used to bully opposing guards in the event. He is very strong and explosive when attacking the basket and has outstanding leaping ability that allows him to finish over defenders. Brown has a good speed and plays aggressive basketball on both ends of the floor. He shows good intention when passing the ball but needs to improve on decision making. A solid guard overall.
Jarryn Skeete/6’1”/PG/2012/School-Cardinal Leger
A solid young point with a good passing touch, Skeete has a long way until graduation to become special point guard. Nonetheless, he needs to keep improving his shooting.
Anthony Ottley/6’5”/SF/2010/School -Emery C.I.
Ottley was one of the leading scorers in the camp. Ottley is real thin and has a good length. He is an effective slasher. He drives, hop steps and performs a quick floater over the defender. One impressive aspect of his game includes following up on his missed shots and giving his team second chance points. Look for Ottley to have successful 2009-2010 season.
Aaron Best/6’2”/SF/2011/Eastern Commerce C.I.
This athletic guard was playing well at camp until he went down with an injury. He has good length and never gives up on a possession. Aaron plays with a great deal of energy.
Cedric Kasongo/6’4”/SG/2010/Notre Dame
Kasongo isn’t your explosive type of guard. He is smooth, has patience and finds ways to put the ball in the hoop. Noticeably from the corner, Kasongo will hit the three pointers with his feet set.
