Nations Elite will be releasing updated rankings next month for the classes of 2013-2017. We have been busy this summer attending camps, showcases and AAU events around the country trying to get an eye on the nations top prospects. Our rankings will be a reflection of the performances of the players we had a chance to see and their future potential. Stay tuned !!!

Rakym Felder aka. the Bedstuy bully, lived up to his name at the Fab Frosh camp. He harassed opponent's the entire time there. If it wasn't his smothering defense it was his intimidating and physical style of play. He was too strong and physical for most guards and it showed at camp. He got to the basket and finished through all types of contact. He bullied his way into the top 20 all star game in which he played well. We really like Rakyms game and he will flourish once he develops a consistent mid range game and jump shot. He is a Nations Elite Prospect!!
Eron Gordon showed why he is one of the elite scoring guards in this loaded 2016 class at the Fab Frosh. He has a very quick first step and his ability to get to the basket is second to none. At times he seemed to toy with guards on opposing teams because they couldn't stay in front of him. His athleticism is off the charts (he can get in the air for dunks with ease). His play got him into the top 20 all star game. He put his athleticism on full display in that game when he came down and dunked on Edrice Adabayo. Eron is going to have to work on his jump shot for the next level. Overall Mr. Gordon had a great showing at the camp. He is a Nations Elite Prospect!!!
Braxton Blackwell had a great showing at the Fab Frosh camp. He came in and established his game the minute he touched the floor. One of the main attributes Mr. Blackwell has is his ability to handle the ball in a half court set and in transition. Braxton has a decent mid range game to go along with his ball handling. He received a top 20 all star game nod also. One thing that Braxton needs to work on is developing is his jump shot and better post skills so when he is matched with smaller players he can take full advantage. He showed why he is one of Tennessee's top players for the 2016 class. Auburn University has taken notice of Mr. Blackwells play and gave him his first offer. I'm sure many more colleges will soon following suit. Braxton Blackwell is a Nations Elite Prospect!!!
