Orlando, FL (Future150) -- Tevin Mack, 2015 SG, Upward Stars: One of the most tantalizing prospects in the rising junior class is the 6-foot-5 wing prospect. He has all the tools to become a high major stud at the next level. Georgia and Virginia Tech are a few of the programs to offer after a big summer, and I expect many more to follow. Right now, his slashing ability is his biggest asset, but the rest of his game is slowing catching up. When all is said and done, he could be the second best prospect in the state of South Carolina in the 2015 class.  

Trey Porter, 2014 PF, Boo Williams: You can't teach height, and the 6-foot-10 post prospect has it. In the past year, his game has grown by leaps and bounds, and he's beginning to become a division one priority for several schools. While his game is far from a polished product, many mid-major and high-major coaches will be offering the Virginia native with hopes of uncovering one of the biggest gems in the 2014 class. His rebounding and shot-blocking was crucial in his team's upset victory over a powerful Houston Hoops squad Saturday night.

Tony Toplyn, 2014 PF, Team Final: The undersized 6-foot-5 power forward is going to be a successful post player at the low major level because of his rebounding instincts and athleticism. He plays within himself and always makes the right decisions on the floor. Already playing for an excellent Neumann-Goretti (PA) program, he will continue to improve before he heads to the next level. Binghamton and Penn are a few schools who are hoping to ink the high-motor prospect.

Edrice Adebayo2016 PF, Boo Williams: The 6-foot-8 manchild staked his claim as a top 5 prospect in the rising sophomore class with his performance on Saturday night. The athletic forward was throwing down thunderous dunks, blocking countless shots, and muscling older post players while making his imprint on the game. His skills have grown considerably over the past year, and it's scary to think where he could be by next July. 

P.J. Dozier, 2015 PG, Upward Stars: P.J. is a unique talent in the fact that he is equal parts scorer and play maker. He is athletic and can either take bigger defenders off of the dribble or post up smaller ones. He used his length to pressure fellow top 2015 prospect Malachi Richardson into tough shots. His passing ability was also on display as he made a series of pinpoint passes for easy baskets.

Ja'Quan Newton2014 PG, Team Final: The Philly native was nearly unstoppable when he drove to the hoop on Saturday afternoon. His ability to distribute was also on display as he picked apart the Upward Stars defense with drive and kicks. Newton has improved his jumpshot as well and is becoming a complete scorer.

Javis Howard2014 CF, Upward Stars: Howard showed that he can score both on the block and from the high post . His speed makes him a mismatch and he uses his strength to bully smaller defenders. Howard is also a good rebounder who brings 100% every time that he steps on the floor.

Matt Milon2015 SG, Q-6 All-Stars: Milon was instrumental in keeping his team in the game vs eventual national champion Howard Pulley. After struggling for most of the week, Milon displayed his deadly perimeter stroke. He had two 3 pointers in the first half, and three more in the second. Milon can also put the ball on the floor but he excels when coming off of screens or catching and shooting.

Tyus Jones2014 PG, Howard Pulley: Jones is currently ranked as the number one prospect in the country and nothing he showed us on Saturday would make us think otherwise. Jones has vision that few players in the world possess. He also shot it well from deep and was able to score off of the bounce as well. Many of the top programs in the nation are recruiting him and it's easy to see why.

Reid Travis2014 PF, Howard Pulley: Travis was fantastic throughout the entire gold super showcase. He used his strength to bull his way through defenders and finish at the rim despite a good amount of contact. Travis also showed that he is a threat to step out and hit shots from deep as well. He is a walking matchup nightmare with a high motor and there is little doubt that he will be an impact player at the next level.

Kedrick Flomo2014 PG, Team Charlotte: Flomo kept his team close in a tough game against Boo Williams, scoring 18 points in the loss. He's a point guard who excels at getting to the rim due to his quickness. While he is still transitioning to more of a traditional lead guard, Flomo shows a promising amount of athleticism as well as a decent amount of improvement. After his performance at the Gold Super Showcase, expect new schools to be after the talented guard.

Justice Winslow2014 SF, Houston Hoops: At this level Winslow is a man amongst boys. He is built with a solid, college ready frame already and is a physical defender. He punishes teams on the offensive end too, as he relentlessly attacks the basket. Much has been made about a Jones-Winslow-Okafor package deal, if that does in fact happen, whatever school gets those three will immeditely become title contenders.
