Over 450 of the nation’s top ballers descended upon Pacers Athletic Center for the eighth annual MSHTV Camp. With top players in every class in the building, battles were had, rankings shifted and unknown names became viral internet sensations.
While the vast majority of the biggest names in youth basketball were in attendance, the MSHTV Camp in Indianapolis also boasted many lesser known players from 40 different states, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Some experts projected the camp to have nearly 100 DI prospects by the time that it is all said and done, but there’s still plenty of time for things to sort themselves out.
Here’s a look at what the top freshmen (Class of 2027) had to offer:
Lincoln Cosby, 6’9, SF, Overtime Elite
The first freshman ever to sign with Overtime Elite, Lincoln Cosby lived up to the hype at MSHTV. Having measured 6-foot-9 in front NBA scouts at the recent Overtime Elite Pro Day, the Cincinnati native has the physical profile that people dream of out of a new age forward. The lefty is an explosive athlete who has shown flashes of NBA three point shooting range along with the ability to play inside-out. Cosby has been letting the process come naturally in terms of college recruitment, but is considered by some to be the top player in the class nationally and will have no shortage of suitors.
Jahari Miller, 6’3, PG/SG, Overtime Elite
Jahari Miller has a refined game and was a walking bucket at the 2023 MSHTV Camp. The Indianapolis native has been playing at a high level for quite some time, both on the AAU circuit and recently in front NBA scouts at the Overtime Elite Pro Day. It is not a coincidence that Jahari played 17U George Hill All Indy throughout the spring that he was easily able to get buckets against players his own age at MSHTV. He blends an advanced skill set with a strong frame, making him tough to stop for any freshman at the camp.
Bryce Curry, 6’3, SG, Lakota West HS (OH)
As far as guards in the Midwest are concerned, there aren’t many that you’ll find that are more athletic than Bryce Curry. The super creative finisher had more dunks than any guard throughout the camp, showed off intriguing court vision, and was a walking bucket any time that he had the rock. Curry already has numerous high major offers and will be running with Phenom United on the AAU circuit.
Henry Robinson Jr., 6’7, SF/PF, Matanzas HS (FL)
One of the higher long term upside players in the camp, Henry Robinson Jr. was a walking mismatch who is gaining more confidence by the day. Having made massive improvements over the past year, he is a new age forward who can beat you off the bounce, yet also utilizes his size in the paint. His best attribute may be his defense though, as Robinson has no problems defending in space on the perimeter. He runs with Nightrydas on the AAU circuit and will be playing for his father on the high school ranks.
Precious Sam, 7’0, C, Louisville Ballard (KY)
The biggest player that the camp had to offer also showed the ability to produce at a high rate. Owning a massive frame that will assuredly fill out, the ability to run the floor, and no short of punishing dunks, it’s easy to see why there’s already so much buzz around him in the Bluegrass State. In fact, both Florida State and Missouri have already put scholarships on the table for him due to his massive potential.
Antonio Baymon Jr., 6’0, PG, Southern Coast Academy (FL)
Arguably the shiftiest guard in the 2027 group, Antonio Baymon Jr. has no problem electrifying the crowd with his ridiculous ability to change speeds. Baymon had great burst, was a confident shooter, and used his sturdy body to finish through contact at the rim. Originally from Anderson (Ind.), Antonio will be making the move to Florida to play his high school ball.
Jaxen Baker, 6’1, PG, Ursuline Lancers (CAN)
A player I was not familiar with going into the camp, Jaxen Baker came into the MSHTV Camp with a chip on his shoulder, dominating the opening game of the morning en route to a top-20 all star selection. Baker is a creative scorer off the bounce who utilizes his change of pace to create separation for his shot. Given the massive amount of talent north of the border, Baker should be a name that you hear from in the future.
