Louisville, KY. – The John Lucas Midwest Invitational is one of the premier individual camps in the month October. The event attracted elite players from across the country who competed in skill stations and game play. Here are a number of prospects that caught our eye from this weekend’s tournament.

We got next

The class of 2016 is loaded with talent from coast to coast. There were several players that emerged over the weekend at the camp. Markelle Fultz of Hyattsville, Md., is very good off the bounce and slashes to the basket where he can use his athleticism and creativity to finish in traffic. We got our first look at Mario Kegler of Jackson, Miss., last summer at our Elite 32. This 6-foot-8 wing has improved his ability to create off the dribble finishing through contact at the rim.

Future Stars

Although there were plenty of upperclassmen to take note of there were several young players that turned heads. Daniel Mading of Gainesville, Fla.,is an high energy forward that is active on both ends of the floor. He impacts the game with his length and athleticism. Guard Deaundrae Ballard of Atlanta, Ga., is a must see prospect in the class of 2017. DJ Harvey of Hyattsville, MD., was in constant attack mode throughout the day knocking down pull up jumpers and finishing on drives to the basket. Ibrahim Doumbia of Jacksonville, Fla., is a long and lean athlete that affects the game in a variety of ways. He is active and aggressive on both ends of the floor with the ability to rebound and block shots. Atlanta native Victor Enoch is another prospect with good size and strength that allows him to control the paint with rebounds and shot blocking. Throughout the day he showed his physicality in the lane and on the glass
