NBPA Top 100: Storylines

One of the most important evaluations for the Scout team heading into the NBPA Top 100 Camp was 2016 center Edrice Adebayo. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound post from Pinetown (N.C.) Northside entered the camp ranked as Scout's 25th prospect nationally in 2016 as well as 3rd rated center, so Charlottesville was a good opportunity to get another look at the five-star. The main schools involved with Adebayo are presumed favorite NC State along with UNC, Kansas, Maryland, Wake Forest and Louisville. (Scout.com)

NBPA Top 100: Edrice Adebayo Makes Statement

On Friday night, five-star big man Edrice "Bam" Adebayo asserted his dominance. He wasn't unchallenged, though, as four-star power forward Mamadi Diakite stepped up to challenge him during the second half. They were just two of many standouts during the Friday night session of the NBPA Top 100 Camp. If there was any doubt about 6-foot-9 power forward Edrice Adebayo being worthy of his No. 8 ranking in the class of 2016, he has gone a long way toward silencing it. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

You mentioned that North Carolina, Duke, Baylor and Texas have been reaching out a lot, what is the thought process towards that level of interest, and how has each program’s pitch been unique from each other?
