Aiken, SC (Future150) -- The third day of the Peach State Showcase brought together some more great talent to showcase in front of the college coaches in the second weekend of the July live period.

Here are a few players that stuck out to Future150:

Detrick Mostella- 2013 SG, Southeast Elite

Mostella might of been the best player we saw all day long at the Peach State.  He is a highlight reel waiting to happen. He had the top play of the tournament so far with a transition alley oop from Justin Pride.  He was looking down in the rim as he punched it on the opposition.  Trust me this description does not do the play justice.  He later followed that up with 4 straight 3-point shots to push the lead to 14.  One key improvement this summer has been his on ball defense where he took 2 big charges at key moments to seal the win.

Demetrius Henry: 2013 PF, Team Breakdown

Henry has had an impressive few games so far at Peach State, but today may have been his biggest. Instead of scoring his usual 20-30 points, the 6-foot-9 big man contributed by leading his team and making plays happen when they needed it. Henry’s last second steal and layup at the end of the game allowed Team Breakdown to take down rival Gold Coast. Throughout the game, Henry finished at the rim and made plays on the defensive end.

Ran Tut: 2013 C,Florida Gold Coast

An extremely raw talent, Tut showcased his athleticism and length on Friday. Tut challenged Henry and Malik Price-Martin, blocking several shots throughout the game. His length caused problems for the opposition. He also runs the floor very well for his size.

Justin Pride: 2013 PG, Southeast Elite

Pride is what every coach dreams of in a point guard. The 5-foot-10 floor general slowed the game down for the Southeast Elite and helped distribute the ball to some of the team’s scorers, including Detrick Mostella, Riley Norris, and Tyler Madison. It is also worth being noted that his team is undefeated, in part because of the play of Pride. He should rack up some offers within the next few weeks.

Cedric Hankerson: 2013 SG, Florida Gold Coast

Hankerson is a strong-bodied guard that knows how to use his body to his advantage. The 6-foot-5 wing challenged defenders at all times (especially in transition) towards the basket. He got to the rim at will, and showed the ability to finish with contact. It is also worth mentioning he finished among players 6-foot-8 and taller.

Grayson Allen: 2013 SG, Jacksonville Lee Bulls

Allen was definitely one of the more consistent players we saw today.  He is an elite athete who can score the rock.  He had several big time block shots at the rim.  At the end of the game, he scored 11 points of his game high 24 to seal the win.  He is the type of player every coach wants on his team due to his high basketball IQ and the way he plays the game.

Jamel Jones: 2013 SG, Upward Stars

Jones emerged as one of the more prolific scorers for the day, as he finished with 23 against the Rising Stars. He used his mid-range game to his advantage, whether it was receiving passes off cuts or shooting off the dribble. He has the ability to create space and get his own shot against his opponents, too.

Justin Mckie: 2013 SG, Upward Stars

Mckie’s shot may have not been the best we have ever seen, but he made plays in other ways. The 6-foot-4 guard was very active on the glass, getting the rebound off his own shot on several occasions. The strength to his game is undoubtedly the ability to score the basketball. Mckie has shown the ability to score at all three levels.

Jevon Thomas: 2013 PG, Team Melo (NY)

Once a Dayton commit, Thomas is back on the AAU nowadays with Team Melo in response to his reclassification. Overall, the 6-foot guard had a solid day. He showed the ability to get to the basket and finish with contact amongst bigger players; he also showed a nice mid-range touch and floater. He is easily one of the better players in the tournament.

Christian Kennedy: 2013 PF, Columbus Knicks

Kennedy used his extremely long arms and height to block shots and disrupt the game-play of his opponents on Friday. At 6-foot-10, it is easy to say the big man played above the rim, but he played very well around the basket. He finished around the goal and attack in good fashion.
