Nashville, TN (Future150) -- The Future150 National Camp wrapped up its action on Sunday afternoon with the Top 40 All-Star Showcase. As usual, several young prospects stole the show, and there were a few surprises as well.
Memphis point guard Rashaan Benson is a prospect who had a breakout camp season, impressing us in Birmingham and at our national camp as well. The 5'9" lead guard has some of the best court vision we have seen on the Future150 circuit this fall. It's no surprise that schools such as Weber State have come calling as of late.
Another one of the biggest surprises of our camp season has been the emergence of Nebraska shooting guard Logan Dorn . The 6'3", 205-pound prospect absolutely came out of nowhere and demonstrated why he will be a stud at the division two level somewhere next season.
Cortlin Davis of Shades Valley High School (AL) is an athletic prospect who will soon be known by many division one coaches. The 6'3" shooting guard is an explosive athlete who has improved considerably over the past year.
Charleston, South Carolina isn't a city known for its basketball talent, but that's beginning to change. Shooting guard Eric Hayward, power forward Seth McKelvey, and small forwards Kaylon Washington and Carlos Scotton all were Top 40 selections.
The 6'7" McKelvey is a finesse player in the post who gets the job done. He has a high motor and is always working for position. Radford, Coastal Carolina, the Citadel, and South Carolina Upstate are all showing interest right now.
Point guard Brandon Hester of Hueytown High School (AL) is another 2013 player with potential to play college basketball. His ball-handling is solid, and his quick first-step allows him to get to the basket at will.
Mitchell Howard, a small forward from Madison County High School (AL) impressed with his hustle, rebounding, and defensive intensity. 2013 small forward Roderic King was nominated for his second All-Star game after impressing us with his combination of size and overall skill level at 6'4".
Stanton College Prep (FL) point guard Ju-Ray Kuo is a name to watch for in the sophomore class. The 5'9" lead guard controls the flow of the game and is an excellent shooter from long distance.
2013 shooting guard Lucas Luttrell was another standout from the camp, using his shooting and defensive intensity to stand out among the prospects.
Several power forward prospects had a good showing at the Future150 National Camp. 2013 big man Keion Alexander showed his upside as a prospect with his raw skills at 6'9". The junior class had three solid big men in Mississippi's Levi Strong, Arkansas's Dwain Whitfield, and Tennessee's Lannom Sowell.
Sophomore small forward David Turner is a prospect who is in a prime position to explode over the next year. He works hard on his game, has great size at 6'4", and has a great base of skills already.
Junior guards also did their part in making highlights this weekend at camp. Shooting guard Deion Sims lit up the scoreboard with his long-range shooting, Point guard Jordan Browning of Millington Central High School (TN) scored on a variety of long range bombs and acrobatic layups in traffic.
Sophomore point guard:Hasan Abdullah out of Alabama showed steady improvement from the Birmingham camp last month. He got to the basket at will, and showed a beautiful spin move in the lane all weekend which defenders had trouble stopping.
The only 2016 prospect in the Top 40 game was Seminole County High School (GA) freshman Anfernee King. He impressed the staff with his consistent shooting, solid ball skills, and his relentless defensive pressure.
