Wednesday, 20 July 2011 15:35 Written by Van Coleman
We'd like to thank our own Paul Swanson for his coverage of the 2011 Jerry Mullen's Top 100 Juco Camp last week at Lindenwood University in St. Louis , MO. The camp featured a deep talent pool that represented a large number of 2011-12's top junior college talent from across the USA. It featured a solid group of tralented big men a deep group of fowards and wing talents. In the back court the combo guards caught his eye, but like the prep class, the point guards seemed to lack in quality. Especially now, prior to the influx of division one transfers that will happen in August. So with that in mind, here's a look at the Top Prospects who displayed their skills at the Mullens Top 100 Juco Camp in St. Louis .
Editor's Note: According to our ratings from the Top 100 Camp all the players featured here will be recruited by the mid or high major levels of division one this fall and next spring.
