And finally, NBADRAFT.COM has OJ ahead of Oden:
Last year the ABCD camp produced 8 of the first 19 picks in the 2004 NBA draft, while this camp obviously wonít produce that type of number in next yearís draft, there was certainly a huge amount of talent on hand, below is a list of the top prospects on hand:
1. OJ Mayo 6í5 190 PG North College Hill H.S. (OH) (2007) -- Has been dubbed the "next LeBron" and he showed why with his performance last week. He was easily one of the 10 best players in camp and he is only going to be a sophomore next year. He continued his show in the Underclassmen All-Star game scoring 19 points and dishing out 5 assists to earn his teamís Co-MVP along with his high school teammate Billy Walker. Going into the camp I was under the impression that Mayo was just a scorer, but he showed he is a point guard who will constantly look to get his teammates involved. He scores a lot because he is already so skilled and talented. He is one of the better shooters in high school basketball, handles the ball extremely well, and has a quick first step with pretty good athleticism. Simply put he is a tough match up. He is so good it is really tough to pinpoint a weakness in his game. If I were a college coach I wouldn't even waste my time recruiting him.
2. Greg Oden 7í0 245 C Lawrence North H.S. (IN) (2006) -- The first thing that stands out about his game is his incredible athleticism for a 7 footer. Right now I compare him to Theo Ratliff, he doesnít have much of an offensive game but heís very athletic and a monster on the defensive end. It's obvious why people are saying he will be the top pick in the 2006 draft. If he adds just one post move he will be absolutely unstoppable at this level, and will have an impact in the NBA from day 1.
3. Derrick Caracter 6í9 285 PF St Patrickís H.S. (NJ), (2006) -- Came out the big winner in his head to head battle against Oden, showing off his amazing combination of skill and brut strength. He can knock down the 3, hit the mid range jumper, score on anybody in the post, handle the ball like a guard and he passes just as well. A lot of people like to focus on athleticism when judging a players talent, but his immense skill level to go with his size and strength make up for his lack of great athleticism.
4. Gerald Green 6í8 215 SF Gulf Shore Academy (TX) (2005) -- Despite being a top 50 player nationally, Green was flying under the radar somewhat heading into camp. After his brilliant week that has definitely changed. I was unfamiliar with him, but all it took was one game for me to call him my favorite player in camp. At the conclusion of camp he was easily the best player, in my mind, leading the camp in scoring by nearly 2 points a game with his 19.1 average. He was also one the MVPs of the Senior All-Star game with his game high 27 points. Not only does he have world class athleticism, he is also a very good 3 point shooter, and he doesnít neglect his mid range game. Now he doesnít have a great handle but it is serviceable which allows him to beat weak to average defenders off the bounce. This guy is so good, that when you compare him right now to Josh Smith at this time last year it is tough to say who is the better of the two.
5. Billy Walker 6í5 180 SF North College Hill H.S. (OH) (2007) -- His nickname isnít ďSkyĒ for no reason. The high school teammate of OJ Mayo really rises. Not only does he throw down some nasty dunks, he can also knock down the three. Walkerís 22 point performance in the Underclassmen All-Star game was enough to earn Co-MVP with Mayo. He is a decent ball handler but not great. Had a head to head match up with Brandon Rush at the camp, and from my view point he definitely came out on top. By the time his senior year rolls around he and Mayo could be both announcing their decisions to skip college and go to the NBA.
