SUWANEE, Ga. – This year’s edition of the Elite Basketball Academy Fab Five Camp provided familiar faces and the introduction of new names. The weekend camp provides plenty of chances for everyone to show how they measured up in game competition. However, the skill development sessions provided a look at how well players could handle new concepts. Here are a few of the players who made an impression both game play and in skill sessions.

Gabrielle Stanton (Kingwood, Texas), Kingwood High School – 2015

The 5-foot-7 point guard from the Lone Star State showed her playmaking ability this weekend at the Fab Five Camp. Stanton is a skilled guard who does a good job of creating space with the dribble with either hand. She shoots the ball at a high rate from behind the arc, which makes her a dual threat play-maker. The Texan finds ways to make positive plays for she and her teammates on the offensive end.

The attractive part of Stanton’s game is she keeps a level head even under duress. Pressure rarely gets to Stanton even when the defense heats things up. Her silky skill and cool demeanor could make her one of the top point guards in the class of 2015. She left her mark as one of the top performers at the Elite Basketball Academy in recent memory.

#ProspectsNationTV and Brandon Clay look at the Day 2 Standounts from TeamEBA Fab5 Camp:


♦ A new name for our evaluators is Kia Abrams. The 5-9 wing provides a physical presence on both ends of the court. She slashed past defenders all weekend long to the rim, while also knocking down open 3-pointers.

♦ The immediate attribute that observers like about Taylor Darks of Cincinnati, Ohio, is her length and athleticism. However, her offensive development lately is notable. She nailed several long range jumpers and hit a few pull-up jumpers in transition. She is turning into a threat on both ends of the floor.

Salita Greene of Durham, N.C. embraces the role of a power forward on the court. She rebounds and scores efficiently around the bucket. The 6-0 forward has developed her face-up game as well. She has range on her jumper and is doing a nice job of beating the defense on the face-up dribble attack.

Taryn McCutcheon of Washington, W.Va. is an Elite Basketball Academy veteran, but she continues to impress us with the maturation of her game. The 5-6 point guard has ultimate command over the drill portion of camp, but now she is starting to exert her will in game play. She ran away with the afternoon session of camp as the most dominant point guard in the Class of 2016 on hand this weekend.
