The NY2LA Futures Camp was a great event filled with quality 2025 & 2026 talent. The depth of the camp roster made for a competitive atmosphere & lots of exciting action. After taking a few weeks to digest everything, here are thoughts on a few guys who caught my eye at camp.


6’5” Zavier Zens (2026/Wisconsin Lutheran)
It usually doesn’t take long for tall freshmen that can shoot to stand out in this type of setting; that’s what Zens is and he put together an efficient day from the perimeter at camp. At 6’5” with a high, consistent release, Zens was able to shoot over guys. There isn’t much extra movement on the way up, his shot has good rotation, and comes off his hand with good touch. His 3-point ability opened up other areas for him as he has a smooth game off the dribble, using his length & showing an understanding of angles when in traffic. Things just came easy to Zens and he displayed a skill level & savviness that you don’t often see from a prospect of his age & size. In total, he averaged 16.5 PPG during gameplay with some very impressive shooting percentages.

6’5” Pryce Gregoire (2025/De Pere)
The Co-MVP of the camp, Gregoire more than earned that honor. He created mismatches throughout the day, using his big, mature build to gain advantages on the interior while also proving to be capable operating away from the basket. He has good balance, good body control, and plays with a poise where he rarely gets rushed. Gregoire has solid shooting form and was selective with his outside shot, knocking down 3’s efficiently but not settling. I really liked how he was decisive and didn’t waste time during gameplay; he used few dribbles to score and always seemed to know what he was going to do on the catch. Gregoire also showed good instincts on the glass, resulting in 7.5 RPG on the day. The duo of him and Zach Kinziger in 2025 at De Pere will be a tough one to deal with the next 3 years.

6’4” Thian Riak (2026/Madison La Follette)
I don’t think there would be much argument to the claim that Riak was the most athletic prospect at the Futures Camp. The combination of a 32-inch no-step vertical jump, long arms, and good feet made Riak very difficult to stop around the basket. He attacked downhill aggressively from start to finish, using those aforementioned athletic qualities in addition to a frame that takes contact well to his full advantage. Riak’s motor ran high in other areas too, making a defensive impact and rebounding well for a guard during the day. I think he could end up being able to guard 1-4 at the high school level. His rebounding effort allowed him to ignite the break and create open court opportunities, where he really excels. Riak has body control and the ability to adjust in the air, converting on a variety of finishes. He has a chance to be a really nice prospect as his game keeps expanding.

6’6” Trevor Polite (2025/Homestead)
Polite showed a lot of long-term promise at the Futures Camp. After dealing with injury issues over the summer, it looked like he wanted to prove he’s fully back and had a productive day. He is capable bringing the ball up the court & making decisions on the move while also displaying a clean outside stroke. Polite was assertive as a scorer/shooter but I liked the flashes he showed with his passing feel & vision. I like Polite’s defensive potential, he can shoot off the dribble, and uses his length well when breaking down defenders. His size helped him against shorter perimeter guys and he has athleticism that makes it hard for forwards to contain him. With mobility and a long 6’6” frame that should keep filling out, you have to be encouraged with what he can already do and what Polite could eventually develop into.

6’7” Collin Clark (2025/Greenwood Lab)
I just mentioned Polite’s comfort with the ball in his hands, but Clark was probably the most impressive big ball-handler at camp. At 6’7”, Clark has a tight handle that is quick and equipped with a variety of moves, allowing him to create offense often. He pushed the ball in transition effectively throughout the day and also showed he could get his own shot in the halfcourt. Clark gets good elevation on his pull-up and was fluid getting into jumpers off the dribble. A solid athlete who gets off the floor quickly, Clark used that ability to make an impact in multiple areas. He provided high energy on defense contesting shots, was active on the glass, and showed he can finish above the rim. There are a lot of tools that Clark has to work with and how he puts all of those together will be worth tracking.
