Elite 40 Camp 2016
-Chattanooga, TN Over the past 4 months, Team Vol Specs hosted several events and hit the road all over the southeast to evaluate and personally give standout athletes an opportunity to come be apart of our annual Elite 40 evaluation camp. This camp serves as an opportunity to get up and close evals, create recruiting profiles, get elite skill-set training, and educate campers about life and the recruiting process. With athletes from 13 different clubs ranging from 5 states Elite 40 Camp 2016 did not disappoint with a stockpile of young talent leading the way. Here is what we learned from each class, and a few notables.
Class of 2017
The class of 2017 consisted of some good available options at the guard spots 1-3. They really came out and attacked the morning skill set session gracefully.
5'6 PG Shayla Ludy (Ga)- Loved Shayla's game, she managed the floor well and did not turn the ball over much. High motor/high energy guard that can provided a spark for team orange.
5'6 SG Courtney Ellison (Tn)- Courtney did what was expected of her, she got open, and knocked down open shots. She knew exactly when and where to be to get her shot off.
5'7 G Bionka Massie (Tn)- Bionka facilitated very well, and got her team into transition frequently. Huge Upside to her game.
Class of 2018
One of the most talented divisions at Elite 40 camp, most of these rising Juniors wont be available too much longer, they have next level talent.
5'6 PG Jaymi Golden (Tn)- Jaymi officially earned the name "The golden girl" at camp. The lefty was unguardable in 5 on 5 play, and took on drills as if she was being guarded in skills training.
5'7 SG Brooke McCurdy (Tn)- Brooke teamed up with Golden caused havoc in 5 on 5 together, made a nice backcourt combo. Her shooting ability stretched out defenses.
5'10 SG Jasmine Hembry (Tn)- Jasmine was certainly one of the longest wings at camp, used it to shoot right over the top of smaller defenders.
5'7 G Princess Bates (Tn)- Bates was quiet, but very effective on the defensive side of the floor, qualities that coaches have a tendency to look for.
Class Of 2019
The rising sophomores would fare well against every other class at camp, boasting these 5 standout athletes.
6'2 F Jordan Isaacs (Ga)- Isaacs picked up exactly where she left off last year, a 2nd year camper, she seems to have only gotten better under the basket and is a high major prospect.
5'6 PG Kennedi Williams (Ga)- Small in size, but very skilled at the 1, in terms of ball handling, and game management. Williams had a good camp.
5'6 G Macey Gregg (Ga)- Macey is another returner that has showed consistent improvement. She has gotten longer, and really gotten better at attacking the basket.
5'7 G Kaitlyn Goodman (Tn) - Have to give Goodman credit, she seemed to be on cloud 9 with her confidence shooting the ball, and it showed big time. She was unanimously chosen as one of the top 15 campers.
5'7 G Kennedy Freeman (Ga) - Freeman impressed everyone at camp with her size and high motor. She looked as if she just belonged in that gym, completely comfortable with adversity.
Class of 2020
The class of 2020 was without a doubt the deepest group in the gym, and perhaps the most scrappy of them all. These athletes played with a "chip" on their shoulders and showed great competitive edge.
5'10 G Madison Hayes (Tn) - Hayes is tremendously physically gifted basketball player, with a very high motor on both ends of the floor. She was involved in almost every play during 5 on 5.
5'7 PG Jalyn Bell (Ga)- Naturally built for the pg position, Bell played with great poise, athleticism and a high I.Q.
5'9 G De'zah Lacy (TN)- De'Zah seemed to be having fun, as it was all smiles for her most of the day. The lefty seemed to be in her comfort zone getting in the lane and finishing with contact.
2021 Watch List
These outstanding athletes are Elite young middle- schoolers preparing to become the next uprising. They performed very well at Elite 40 camp and a few even made the top 15 campers list.
