The 2020 NY2LA Futures Camp brought many of the top players from the Midwest and beyond all under one roof just outside of Milwaukee. With prospects from a dozen states, the youngsters were broken up into two separate sessions: The classes of ‘21/’22 and the classes of ‘23/’24. Games were all livestreamed, college coaches were buzzing all day, and regional battles were definitely had throughout the day. 

Here are some of the 2023 standouts from the 2020 NY2LA Futures Camp:

Cormac Wrecke, 6’5, SF, Arrowhead HS (WI)
A bigtime athlete, Cormac “Mac” Wrecke put on a show at the NY2LA Futures Camp. He crushed the rim with his explosive athleticism, hit open three pointers, and was able to use his agility to defend multiple spots. Still a bit of a sleeper on the national level, Wrecke is bound to blow up once he plays in front of college coaches.

Milan Momcilivic, 6’7, PF, Pewaukee HS (WI)
Considered by many to be the top 2023 in Wisconsin, Milan Momcilivic got it done with his inside/out play. He’s a lights out shooter from beyond the arc, has a nice step-back jumper, and utilized his size to post smaller defenders. Milan doesn’t have any D-1 offers quite yet, but that hasn’t stopped endless amounts of programs from inquiring about his game.

Owen Freeman, 6’8, PF/C, BBCHS (IL)
A guy who I had never seen prior to the event, Owen Freeman was one of the bigger surprises of the younger group at the Futures Camp. The Mid-Pro Academy big was a really solid athlete, rebounded the ball exceptionally well, and finished through contact at the rack.  As long as Freeman continues to develop, he should be bringing a ton of college coaches to tiny Bourbonnais, Illinois.

Johnny Kinziger, 5’11, PG, DePere HS (WI)
One of the better shooting point guards at the event, Johnny Kinziger showed that he can hold his own wth many of the Midwest’s best lead guards. He made outstanding decisions with the ball in his hands, shot the ball well from the perimeter, and used some surprisingly creative finishes at the rack. As Kinziger continues to get stronger and fill out, it should really help him against bigger guards.

Prentice Young Jr., 6’3, PG/SG, Wisconsin Lutheran HS (WI)
In terms of powerful guards, Prentice Young Jr. was arguably the best of the event regardless of class. He used his strength to finish through contact in the paint and defend all three perimeter spots at times. One of the better 2023’s in Wisconsin, he is certainly a name to follow over the next three years.

Ty Pence, 6’5, SG/SF, St. Joseph Ogden HS (IL)
Ty Pence was a surprising athlete who really was able to make an impact on both ends. He finished well above the rim, was quite solid defensively, and was overall one of the bigger long term sleepers that the event had to offer.

Faizon Farr, 6’1, Beloit Memorial HS (WI)
Farr had a really nice camp,being awarded as one of the best at his position at the camp. Faizon showed off a really nice crossover and consistently converted once he got to the rim. Given his level of production, Farr will be one of the better players in Rock County.

Brock Harding, 6’0, PG, Moline HS (IL)
Brock Harding was one of the more solid overall lead guards that the event had to offer. He shot the ball well from the perimeter and slashed quite a bit to the rack well. Harding is another player from Rock County who is going to be one to watch.

Danny Stephens, 6’6, SF, Southeastern HS (IL)
Danny Stephens was another intriguing sophomore who got it done inside and out. He finished with both hands at the rack, showed off a solid jumper facing the rack, and went to work from the post against smaller guys. Stephens is another interesting player from a super solid Mid-Pro Academy squad.
