Charlotte, NC (Future150) -- With many different players competing for a limited number of all-star spots, only a few prevailed by being named to the Elite 24 game.

Here are the standouts from Charlotte:

Terrence Durham, 2014 PG: Durham made defenders look silly with his speed and quick ball-handling ability. The 6-foot point guard was shifty in the half-court and too fast for most of his defenders. He lived in the lane, where he scored for himself or his dished off to his teammates for easy buckets. The senior also showed off an impressive pull-up jumper off the dribble.

Sam Johnson, 2015 CG: Johnson proved he was one of the most intelligent players at camp. With his high IQ and understanding of the game, he controlled the game. The 5-foot-8 guard did a nice job of distributing the ball, as well as being patient on offense. He also showed he could hit shots, making the defense respect his shooting ability.

Caleb Homesley, 2015 SG: Smooth is the best way to describe Homesley, who was fun to watch each game. At 6-foot-3, his game was molded a lot like UCLA sophomore Kyle Anderson. Homesley isn’t the fastest or the quickest player, but he used his length, vision, and high IQ to be successful. The southpaw is dangerous from behind the three-point line, and he also proved he could shoot off the dribble.

James Lewis, Jr. 2016 PF: Lewis has all the makings of being a successful big man at the next level. He has a huge wingspan that surpasses his 6-foot-5 height, and his game is still coming along. He does a nice job of blocking shots and rebounding. He will need to add some strength, but he definitely looks to be a promising young prospect.

Darius Moore, 2015 PG: In his second camp of the year, Moore proved that he is one of the more under-rated point guards we have seen. The 5-foot-11 guard does a great job of getting to the lane and finishing at the basket. His jump shot needs to get more consistent, but it is coming along. This is a player to watch as the high school season comes along.

Christian Henley, 2014 PF: Henley also participated in his second camp of the year, and just like in Atlanta, the 6-foot-4 forward played as hard as anyone. He did a nice job of competing at the rim, whether it was finishing at the basket or grabbing tough rebounds.

Malik Milton, 2014 SG: Milton was one of the camp’s best pure scorers, as he showed he could hit three-point shots and put the ball on the floor. He has also improved his athleticism; he blocked several shots with his jumping ability, an impressive trait for him as a 6-foot-1 guard.

Michael Morris, 2015 CG: With his build and strength, Morris already has a college-ready body. The 6-foot, 170-pound guard used his strength and body to abuse smaller guards. He thrived at attacking the basket, especially in transition. While his shooting needs to improve, he showed the ability to hit some shots.

Jahmel Watts, 2014 SF: Watts passes the look-test as another potential player at the next level. The 6-foot-3 wing did a nice job of attacking the basket off the dribble. His length and athleticism help him inside the lane, where he can finish with contact. However, he needs to continue to add strength to reach his full potential.

Collin Cooper, 2015 CG: Cooper was another great athlete that used his athleticism to his advantage. The 5-foot-10 guard has a nice body and used it to finish at the basket. He also showed off a nice mid-range game to go along with his slashing capabilities.

Khaleil Backman, 2014 SF: Backman was a high energy combo forward that thrived on the defensive end. The 6-foot-5 wing did a nice job of contesting and blocking shots, as well as forcing steals and turnovers for his team. Backman has a great body and once his skills catch up with his athleticism, he will be a very dangerous player.

Seth Davis, 2015 PG: Davis was one of the craftiest guards at camp and he used it to his advantage. It was a hard task for defenders to keep the 5-foot-11 guard in front of them. Davis excels at attacking the basket and getting to the rim. He did a lot of this in transition, but in the half-court he also hit some jump shots.
