The final CoBL College Exposure Camp of 2023 took place this past Sunday at Competitive Edge Sports, as 100 area juniors and seniors took to the courts in front of dozens of college coaches and assembled scouts and media. 

Here’s who stood out to the CoBL staff over the course of the day:


Adrian Brito, 2025 Pocono Mt. West

Adrian Brito (2025 | Pocono Mountain West)
Brito is a big, strong 6-foot-5 forward who operates as a big man clogging the lane and protecting the rim on defense but moves like a guard once he secures the rebound and gets going the other way, often pushing the ball up the floor in transition. Brito cuts well away from the ball to create scoring opportunities in the lane. As the day progresses he unpacked his skill set even further, displaying his handle on the break and showcasing a feathery passing touch. He’s the total package on the box, able to use his footwork to split double teams and score. When you thought you had it all figured out, he stepped outside to knock down a three to start the second game. 

Mikey Ekenyere (2025 | Emmaus)
Perhaps the biggest ‘wow’ plays all day were some of the blocks that Ekenyere collected on Sunday afternoon. The 6-5 wing from the Lehigh Valley was perhaps the bounciest player in the gym, and he showed that with multiple chase-down and weak-side blocks — quite a few of which seemed like open layups until Ekenyere closed the gap and swatted them with authority. More than just a raw athlete, Ekenyere showed a smooth jumper by knocking down multiple rhythm 3-pointers, and put the ball on the floor a few times to attack the rim. 

Sebastian Fermin (2024 | Pocono Mountain East)
Fermin is a physical combo guard who imposed his will on both sides of the ball, controlling the pace on offense and breaking the press, allowing his teammates to score in transition.  He possesses quick handles and pull-up three capability — able get his shot off in a hurry and is not afraid to fire from several feet beyond the arc. He demonstrated his ability to be disruptive on defense in a momentum changing steal, which he turned into an outlet pass to Samir Peterson (Lincoln) for a ferocious tomahawk dunk. 

Clyde Frasier III (2024 | Middletown, Del.)
Even though he doesn’t immediately jump off the page at you, Frasier showed why he was one of the top lead guards at the camp with a steady performance all afternoon long. The broad-shouldered 6-0, 185-pound point guard limited his mistakes: he took smart shots when he was open, drove at opportunities, fed teammates whenever possible, played good defense and ran his team whenever he was on the floor. Frasier showed a nice outside shot in rhythm and pulled up if defenders went under a screen, and used his frame well around the rim to finish with both hands. 

Matt Gardler, 2025 Marple Newtown

Matt Gardler (2025 | Marple Newtown)
As an undersized guard, you have to be really good at a lot of things in order to be a productive player at the next level. Gardler has plenty of talent and skills to make up for that disadvantage. The Marple Newtown floor general has the quickness to get by defenders and floor awareness to find his teammates in good spots on the floor. It seemed at times his terrific passing ability actually opened up even more driving lanes for himself. He chose when to take shots for himself and hit a couple of threes during an impressive afternoon as well.

Kellen Ingram (2024 | Abington)
Ingram is a talented athlete at 6-foot-4, and though he has some rawness to his game, his relentless motor allowed him to flirt with a double-double in all three contests on Sunday.  He started his day in Game 1, and showed that when you lay off him he can knock down a three as well, closing the half with a healthy three pointer. He used his length and traffic to facilitate at times as well and did plenty of damage on the offensive and defensive glass down there as well.

Tariq Jennings (2024 | West Catholic)
Jennings is the prototypical West Catholic wing.  He handles the ball like a point guard, but at 6-6 his height and length allow him to operate over and around the defense.  He facilitated for most of the game, but he made his presence known with a transition dunk over an unsuspecting defender who was a half step too late.  For Jennings that’s all it takes. He a matchup nightmare as he gets down and guards on the perimeter and at the same time will change a shot at the rim. He scores on all three levels with ease and demonstrated that as he cycled through his offensive moves with a one dribble pull up, repeated layups in transition, knock down threes when open and finishing through major contact in transition.

Kodi Johnson (2025 | Phelps School)
Johnson was a unique combination on the day of elite athleticism and a skill set of a polished offensive bag.  A face up down hill player that is always tracking the ball and creating opportunities to score.  Showed his versatility with a pull-up jumper from around 17 feet, followed up by a two-hand dunk through contact off of an opponent's steal.  He also had a powerful and-1, in transition with a defender hanging on him. He’ll be an interesting piece to watch at Phelps after transferring from Olympus Prep.

Camden Ochs, 2025 Cocalico

Camden Ochs (2025 | Cocalico)
It was a great day for the ‘25 bigs at the camp, including Ochs, who showed off his versatility over the course of the day. The Lancaster-area post (6-5, 190) had a smooth pick-and-pop game, knocking down multiple 3-pointers across his three games, but also had a solid frame to bang in the post and score around the bucket, putting the ball on the floor in the open court and showing good footwork around the rim. Continued progression towards being a wing/forward will help him become a real asset at the next level. 

Khamai Orange (2025 | Delco Christian)
Orange, a 6-foot-1 point guard, had a productive afternoon in his team’s three games. He’s got a good feel for getting to the rim, gliding through the lane to get easy hoops and showing the ability to break down a defense. He forced errors on defense and pushed the pace, whether that was getting the ball up ahead to a teammate or leading the charge himself, where he was able to finish (a nice euro move the highlight) even if there was a defender or two in front. He can pull-up two hit shots from deep when available as well.

Teddy Pendergrass III (2024 | Phelps School)
Pendergrass is a high-motor player on both ends.  Offensively he is strong and explosive with his approach, which in the first game allowed him to finish at the rim, through contact.  His explosive moves also go for his cuts, as the slightest overplay will have him diving to the cup.  Defensively he is everywhere. Literally everywhere on the court.  He’s contesting at the rim, diving on the floor for loose balls and causing turnovers with aggressive pressure defense. Game 2 he demonstrated a great control of the flow down the stretch, willing his team to a comeback victory scoring the last 6  points of the game including a steal & foul in transition to seal the victory.

David Phillips (2024 | Abington)
Phillips was one of the players we didn’t know much about before camp started who really caught eyes on Sunday with his play. The 6-foot point guard, who broke his leg before the season started last November, knows how to control the game and carries himself with a poise on the floor. He changes speeds and finds angles to beat the defense and often played off his frontcourt teammates well, using or rejecting screens before driving and dishing/lobbing the ball into the paint or finishing himself. He was one of the camp’s best finishers as well putting some spin on the ball to get a couple of tough contested shots to go.

Ben Rill, 2025 Central York

Ben Rill (2025 | Central York)
Rill’s defense may have been the most impressive part of his game as the 6-foot-8 forward demonstrated the ability to contest shots inside, while staying in front after switching onto more-perimeter oriented players. Offensively, he has a really good understanding of his game too and where/how to position himself best. The lefthander stays calm even when draped with defenders in the lane, knowing his length and touch will usually help him come away with two points. 

Jake Sniras (2025 | Garnet Valley)
Sniras finished his second game of the day with 18 points including four, three pointers. He was extremely difficult to keep off of the glass for his opponents and excels at the physical play on the interior. At 6-4 he posed a match up issue as he shoots over smaller defenders and exercises a good set of post moves. Against bigs, he can turn and face and use his handle to get to the basket. Defensively he will fight among the trees and in the next breathe sit down and guard tough perimeter players. He is the pulse of the game when he is on the floor and he treats every possession like it’s his last.
