The first annual Phhacility Exposure Camp was held Saturday and Sunday June 20-21 at the Phhacility in Phoenix. A total of 115 players participated. Here is a report on the event.
6’3 CG Devon Arlington of San Marcos HS (CA) 2022
Arlington is a combo guard who is a good ball handler and a pin-point passer. He is most effective with the ball in his hands but can play off the ball as well. He has a nice pull up game, both in transition and the half court. Arlington shoots it ok (with 3 range) but is a little inconsistent. Impressively, he goes hard to the basket on the drive. He projects to be a mid major prospect.
6’1 PG Nathan Calmese of Mesquite HS 2022
Calmese is a solid point guard who gets things done with the ball in his hand. He has an effective pull-up game in the half court and he shoots it well (with 3 range). Calmese is a consistent penetrator who gets in the lane and makes plays and has shown ability as an on-ball defender. He is a division one prospect with the level to be determined.
6’4 SG Dominic Capriotti of PHH Prep 2022
Capriotti is a competitive two guard who understands how to play. He is a lights-out shooter (with range) who can put the dagger in the opponents back. He can bounce it and moves without the ball fairly well. Capriotti is likely a low plus prospect.
6’10 C Matur Dahl of PHH Prep 2021
Dahl is a five man with long arms who is a little on the thin side and could use some bulk/strength. He shows some skill level with the ball in his hand in the paint: He has an ok one-bounce drive, he can dribble operate on the block and has a solid drop step. Dahl hedges the ball screen well and he can block/change shots at the defensive end. He is a mid major prospect worth higher consideration (likely as a red shirt).
5’9 PG Dominique Daniels of TMG Prep (CA) 2021
Daniels is an athletic one man with solid ball handling and passing skills who does a nice job pushing the ball in transition. He can create for himself as well as his teammates.

He has a sneaky first step and a nice hesitation move and gets by the defender on a consistent basis. He also does a nice job rebounding from the guard position. Gonzales is a division I prospect at some level with mid major potential.
6’9 C Carter Van Hammond of PHH Prep 2021
Van Hammond is an intriguing prospect who had a nice showing in this event. He’s a five man with long arms who has a nice face-up one-bounce drive.

He shoots it fairly well mid range, has a nice jump hook on the block and he can beat the defender on the face-up drive. Mich’l is also a good rebounder.

Morris is a low major prospect at the point.
6’4 W Kiran Oliver of PHH/Prep 2021
Oliver is a fresh athlete on the wing who can really run and jump. His best asset is his ability to get to the basket on the drive with an impressive first step.
