Aiken, SC (Future150) -- The sunrise on Thursday was met with intense basketball games taking place at the USC- Aiken Convocation Center, and a battle between the Birmingham Ice and D-One Sports in the 17U division set the tone for what turned out to be another stellar day at the 2012 Peach State Summer Showcase.

Here is who stood out to Future150's staff...

Rashawn "Pookie" PowellPG (2013-Florida Showtime)

The 6'1" floor general showed why big name programs such as Memphis, Miami (FL) and Mississippi State have already offered him full scholarships. He has ultimate control of the game and loves pulling the trigger from downtown off the dribble. 

Nura Zanna: PF (2013-Gold Coast)

An absolute beast on the inside, 6'7" Nura Zanna had a breakout game on Thursday in front of Future150 staff. What makes him a great prospect is his rebounding, both offensive and defensive, as well as his endless motor.The rising senior plays with a passion very few high school kids can match.

Seventh Woods: PG (2016-Carolina Ravens)

The hype around this talent young player did not disappoint.  Woods has a strong body and elite ball handling skills that are beyond his years.  He is a freakish athlete who plays above the rim when attacking and has great court vision. One play that really stood out today was a back door alley oop where he finished with 2 hands. All I can say is look out, this kids is going to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. WOW!

Reed Dungan: PG (2013-Game Elite)

The 6'1" lead guard plays with great poise while leading Game Elite's squad. He is a knock-down shooter from long range when left alone, but is also very capable of penetrating and dishing to his big men Jordan Capps and John Carlos Reyes for easy finishes on a regular basis. He is a point guard prospect other basketball players love to play with.

Joshua PhillipsPF (2013-Team Nashville) 

Another under-the-radar prospect who shined on Thursday was the Team Nashville power forward. While a bit on the skinny side, the 6'8" athlete loves to get up-and-down the floor for easy finishes. He is also a good offensive rebounder and creates many second chance opportunities for himself. A solid mid major prospect.

Tyler MadisonSG (2013-Southeast Elite)

Playing on Southeast Elite with Detrick Mostella and Riley Norris, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. However, Tyler Madison made sure that didn't happen on Thursday while Future150 was in the gym watching. The super athletic, physical speciman not only can fly with the best prospects in America, but he also has a college-ready body right now. He does all the little things right, and plays the game with a killer instinct.

Williams Gabriel: SF (2013-West Virginia Wildcats)

The 6'6" combo forward is another sleeper prospect who made his presence felt today. The Huntington Prep big man uses his long limbs to snatch a ton of rebounds while also carving out space for himself with an arsenal of post moves. Already holding offers from Loyola Maryland, Rice, Tennessee Tech, Wright State, and Niagara, look for more to come after a solid senior season from the big man.

Josh NewkirkPG (2013-D-One Sports)

Solidifying his status as a top 100 player in the Future150 rankings, the North Carolina point guard exploded for 33 points in a losing effort to the Birmingham Ice on Thursday morning, while displaying his burst of speed and incredible change of direction along the way. It was easy basket after easy basket for the floor general on this day.

"I'm out here to prove I'm one of the best. I'm playing for a scholarship," he told Future150. With the way he is currently playing, he has nothing to worry about iin the scholarship department.

Jarvis CalhounSG (2014-Birmingham Ice)

Perhaps the smoothest shooter in the entire Peach State Showcase, rising junior Jarvis Calhoun put on an absolute clinic against the D-One Sports program. He poured in 26 points while showing us his abiltiy to score on all 3 levels.  His best attribute might be his off the bounce mid range jumper where he hit 3 straight at one point to give his team the lead.  It is easy to see why schools such as UAB, Murray State, and Tenn Tech are hot on his trail.

Sam SingerPG (2014-Gold Coast)

The 6'4" point guard doesn't force the issue when running the point for Gold Coast. His dribbling ability along with his excellent court vision make him a future stud at the mid major level in a few years. Keep an eye on him as he enters his junior season. He is a prospect on the rise.
