LBI Event Recap: Spring Arbor Elite Camp (Spring Arbor, MI)

By Keith Wade @wadesworld32, 07/02/24, 3:30PM EDT


Spring Arbor, MI: On Saturday, Spring Arbor was the place to be for aspiring college players. The staff did a great job being hands-on and super involved in the afternoon and making each camper feel individually coached. During the 5-5, a number of girls stood out. Here are a few that caught my eye!!

Ella Locke 2025 Guard Leslie HS
Ella is a physical guard with a deceptively quick first step and the ability to play downhill. She had a great day creating off the bounce and making plays. She was aggressive, scoring in the lane, and was exciting in open court, throwing nice passes and finishing in traffic.

McKinley Gaddy 2027 Michigan Center HS
McKinley is the ideal PG for any situation. She is a pass first guard who takes pride in making the right assist before forcing a bad shot. She has a nice handle, she’s quick off the bounce, and she controls the tempo of the game with great pace and patience. Me being a former point guard I have high expectations for that position and Gaddy could play PG for me any day of the week.

Jozelynn Begick 2027 Wing Freeland HS
Jozelynn is an exciting young prospect who thrives in the open floor. She has nice size and length and she does a great job using it to score going to the basket and finishing in transition. She knocked down shots from the outside which opened up her drive and she was super effective getting in the lane to make a play. Jocelyn was definitely one of the top players, regardless of class, in the camp!

Danica Dwyer 2026 Guard Owosso HS
Danica is a tough, gritty guard who stood out at camp, playing harder than everyone and showing that she could play either guard position effectively. She attacked the hoop with the dribble and put pressure on the defense with physical finishes in the lane. She knocked down the open shot, and she was tough defending the ball and rebounding from the guard position. Dwyer is a very intriguing prospect.

Golden Nicholson 2027 Wing Dewitt HS
Golden had arguably one of the best days at camp, displaying a big-time perimeter skill set. She was unstoppable off the bounce weaving through the defense and finishing with either hand, Personally I had never seen Golden shoot from the outside but she displayed a pretty left hand stroke pulling up and knocking down the J when she wasn’t getting to the rack. Golden was one of the top players in camp and showed me she is one of the top players in her class, young girl got some game!!

Elizabeth Shaefer 2026 Wing Okemos HS
Elizabeth had a huge day at camp. She glided up and down the floor using her great length, size, and skill set to score in transition. She was tough on both ends of the floor, rebounding at a high clip and battling for loose balls. At one point, Elizabeth might have been the leading scorer in camp today, scoring ten straight off nice finishes in the lane. I was super impressed with Shaefer.

Avis Skinner 2026 Guard Grand Ledge HS
Avi is an athletic guard who plays with a super high motor that looks as if she could run all day. She played with great energy, hitting the three ball, aggressively attacking off the dribble, and making plays for her or her teammates. Avi was one of the hardest workers in the camp, using her speed and hustle to get to all the loose balls and play tough defense.

Sadie Day 2026 Guard Calvary Baptist  HS
Sadie was a knockdown shooter at camp. She did a great job running the floor and getting to her spots. She has a quick release, and she did a great job knocking down some big threes in competition. She competed at a high level and showed toughness on defense.

Kennedy Goodwin 2025 Wing East Jackson HS
Kennedy might have been the toughest, best rebounder at camp. She was physical in the lane, getting great position, mixing it up, and getting her hand on most rebounds that came off. Once she secured the board, she did a great job re jumping on offense and scoring off two feet. Defensively, she was a force in the lane, getting deflections, block shots, and physically defending the paint.

Aubree Allen 2026 Post Parma Western HS
It’s usually tough for a true post player to shine in a guard-dominant camp setting, but Aubree found a way.  She was a force on the boards, rebounding everything that came off. She scored at will down low using great footwork and a soft touch scoring with both hands. Aubree has prided herself on getting better and each time I see her I see improvement. I expect a big summer from Aubree on her travel team!
