Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- Future150 continued its outstanding pace early in the camp season on Saturday with a trip to Atlanta. With more than 140 prospects in attendance, the competition was at a premium.

Here are some players that impressed the staff the most:

J.J. Catchings, 2014 PG: The Future150 alum came out to Atlanta and proved he was well-deserving of his Future150 All-American status. The 6-foot-1 guard is extremely long for a player at his position, and with his recent bulk of muscle, he is an even more attractive prospect. Despite breaking his finger in drills, Catchings let it fly from deep and converted for several three-pointers each game.

John Ragin, 2015 SG: Another excellent shooter to showcase his sniping skills was John Ragin. The 6-foot-2 combo guard lit it up from outside in 5-on-5 play with an 8-for-9 shooting performance from behind the arch. He definitely had one of the better shooting performances from our early camp season.

Darius Moore, 2015 PG: Moore was one of the more pleasant surprises from Saturday’s camp. The 5-foot-11 speedster burst onto the scene in a variety of ways on the offensive end. He showed great explosiveness from end to end, usually allowing him to get inside the lane. He proved he can finish with contact or dish the ball off for easy assists.

Clayton Hughes, 2016 SF: Despite only being a sophomore, Hughes distances himself from the rest, including many of the upperclassmen. The 6-foot-4 wing has a great understanding of the game, and he used it to dominate the competition. He surprised many of his competition with his sneaky athleticism and jumping ability, as he brought down a couple of authoritative dunks. A Division-1 school will get a nice player in a few years with this gem.

Robert Baker, 2016 SF: Another impressive sophomore to stand out with his play was Atlanta’s own, Robert Baker. The 6-foot-7 forward showed off his versatility with a mixture of skills from the inside and outside. He finished with both hands and blocked shots while in the post, and he countered it with knocking down shots from the perimeter. This will be a prospect to keep an eye on in the future.

Tookie Brown, 2015 PG: With his play on Saturday, Brown reiterated the fact that he is one of the top point guards in the state of Georgia in the Class of 2015. The 5-foot-11 guard showed off his quick burst and explosiveness, along with his scoring ability. We have seen that he can get to the rim on a consistent basis, but Brown showed defenses will have to keep tabs on him with his pull-up and mid-range game.

Dishon Lowery, 2016 PF: After seeing Lowery a couple of times, it is evident that Lowery loves to be physical. The 6-foot-6 combo forward bruised players down low with his post moves and physicality. He has great post moves and they should only continue to get better with time. The sophomore is an excellent finisher at the rim, especially with both hands.

Ronald McCloud, 2015 SG: McCloud proved to be one of the most gifted scorers at camp with his knockdown shooting ability. He consistently hit jumpers throughout the day, as well as showing off some leaping skills. He had one of the more exciting plays of the day with a backdoor alley-oop. 

Devin Huffman, 2015 PG: The Norcross High School (GA) product has "next" at the perennial state powerhouse. The 6-foot-2 point guard can get results on the floor in several ways. He can score the basketball by knocking down jump shots or using his quick first step to get to the basket where he can finish at the rim. He also has solid ball-handling skills and court vision.

Nasir Shabazz, 2015 PG: The 5-foot-10 floor general made the trip to Atlanta all the way from Iowa in order to compete at camp, and it has proved to be worth it. He has excellent speed on the floor and is a crafty passer and finisher on the offensive end. He is fearless in the lane and loves to create contact at the rim in order to get to the free-throw line.
