The 1% Basketball Club recently hosted The Nor-Cal Super 100 Camp in California's Bay Area at El Cerrito High School. The camp included many of the top prep players in Northern California including three of the top players in the class of 2013. 1% club founder Jeremy Russotti hosted the day’s events which included a series of NBA style conditioning and strength training exercises. Professional strength & conditioning coach Alan Stein was in attendance to direct much of the morning session. Stein, who has trained such notables as Kevin Durant, ran the players through a vast array of stretches, strength training, balance & coordination drills designed to strength the player’s bodies as well as their games. The afternoon session featured a series of high quality showcase games including a match up of two of ESPNU's top 11 players in the class of 2013. Under Russotti's direction, the camp went off without a hitch. Players were given a vast array of valuable information ranging from creating space using deceleration on the court; to making sure they thanked people in their everyday lives in efforts to make them winners off the court as well.

Here are a few of the players that distinguished themselves during the camp.

Aaron Gordon : 6'7'' 210, PF, Archbishop Mitty (San Jose, CA) 2013

            Displaying a level of athleticism & skill, Gordon showed why he was the camps highest profile player. Last year, Gordon led Archbishop Mitty to one of the most successful basketball seasons in the schools history which included WCAL League and Playoff Championships, the CCS Division II title, the Nor-Cal Championship and CIF State D2 title. Then, early in the summer of 2011, Gordon led the USA's U16 team in scoring and the entire tournament in rebounding during a Gold Medal run in the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship. Gordon is long & lean leaper who has been compared to Blake Griffin for his propensity to posterize opponents. One of the top players in the class of 2013, Gordon showed out at the camp with a dazzling display of dunk, drives, and rebounds; but maybe most impressive was the ferocity with which he attacked the basket and deft footwork that make him a nightmare for all defenders.

Jabari Bird : 6'6'' 190, SG, Salesian (Richmond, CA) 2013

            Probably the most prototypical pro player in the camp.  Like Gordon, Bird is also ranked among the top players in the class of 2013. Showing off a remarkable ability to get to the rim at will, Bird looked like the player most likely to continue scoring on any level moving forward. While not possessing a lighting quick first step, Bird has a unique body control and surprising length that allows him to drive and finish with relative ease. Long and agile, Bird features a silky handle and soft touch in the lane. While his outside touch is legitimate, he still needs to improve his consistency from long range. Already possessing great lift, which he showcased at the camp with several highlight reel dunks. Bird looks to be an even better player in the future with improved strength & conditioning, like that being provided by the 1% Club. ( Cal Commit 2013).

Stephen Domingo : 6'6'' 180, SF, St. Ignatius (San Francisco, CA) 2013

            Domingo, one of the best shooters in his class, is a wiry forward with a high level of maturity and growing understanding of the game. Domingo was selected as a member of the USA's U16 Men’s Developmental National Team after attending the October 2010 mini-camp. While Domingo struggled at the Super 100 camp, he is still one of the best players in the nation. An agile player on the perimeter, Domingo also has the ability to rebound and defend in the low post; A well rounded player with an effortless jumper and a willingness to learn coupled with a hunger to get better. One of the most engaging campers, his intelligence was evident and his desire to apply his intellect to his already numerous basketball skills promises to give this youngster a chance to continue to ascend to the games highest level. (Georgetown 2012 Reclassification).

Johnnie Vassar : 6'0'' 160, PG, La Lumiere (LaPorte, IN) 2014

            One of the youngest players in the camp, also traveled one of the longest distances to get there. Vassar, a Chicago native with strong California ties, will play this upcoming season along side prized but controversial Indiana recruit, Hanner Perea. Last October, Vassar was invited to the USA's U16 Men's Developmental National Team October Mini-Camp. The most explosive player of any height in the Super 100 camp, Vassar is a young guard with great bounce who had all in attendance captivated by his dunks during pre-game warm ups. A speedy guard with tremendous upper body strength and a lighting quick first step, Vassar showed all in attendance a range of skills. A heady playmaker a well, Vassar processes a solid handle and ability to get into the teeth of the defense and finish with contact or dish off to an open teammate.

Other notable players include Ivan Rabb (#1 2015), Marcus Lee, Langston Morris-Walker, Trevor Dunbar, Aubrey Dawkins, Leo Smith, David Ahern, Rae Jackson, Tanner Giddens.
