LSU Basketball commit Ben Simmons has been receiving a lot of attention for his play at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, VA. Rob Dauster with NBCSports.com
said that Simmons easily stood out as the best player on the first day.
The 6-foot-8 combo-forward finished the day as the camp’s leading scorer, going for 18 points in both games. He was active around the rim, finishing anything and everything he got his hands on despite doing up against talented big men like Chase Jeter and Doral Moore. He made plays in transition and finished above the rim, throwing down a couple of impressive dunks in the process.
Simmons, who is ranked No. 5 in the Class of 2015 by Rivals.com, is considered by some to be the best prospect in the 2015 class. The native of Australia burst onto the scene last spring when he attended the Pangos All-American camp and has since enrolled at Monteverde Academy (FL) and committed to LSU, where his Godfather, David Patrick, is an assistant coach.
Here is footage from the camp of Simmons going up against five-star recruit Chase Jeter.
