Even amongst a strong group of guards at the NY2LA Futures Camp this past weekend, Nasir Whitlock proved he was a step above the rest. With his highly impressive play during his three games, the 6’1” junior earned himself Co-MVP honors alongside Milan Momcilovic for the 2023 class at the camp. 

Throughout this past year Whitlock has continued to prove he is one of the top 2023 point guards in the Midwest. On the NY2LA Association this past season with Gain Elite he earned himself first team honors at the 16U level while also performing very well while playing up at the 17U level. The Futures Camp on Saturday was no different as Whitlock continued to shine. 

Game after game during the camp, Whitlock showcased his playmaking ability. With his quickness and moves, Whitlock is incredibly tough to defend off the dribble to constantly get into the paint and produce. He can really finish around the paint but also sees the floor very well. With all his tools, he is extremely difficult to stick with to get himself to the basket or create for himself from the outside. While he did most of his damage attacking the basket, he also a smooth jumper knocking down several threes during the camp. Over the course of his three game, Whitlock averaged 16.3 points as well to running the offense for his team at a high level. On the end of the floor, he continuously defended the ball at a high level using his quickness to play tough perimeter defense. 

College coaches will want to see him this upcoming season with DeLaSalle High School in Minneapolis. Currently he has interest from a number of division one programs including Appalachian State, DePaul, Harvard, Lehigh, Michigan, Northern Iowa, Princeton, Tulsa, and others.
