Orlando, FL (Future150) -- The Future150 staff made an early camp stop in Orlando this year to give some Florida-area players a chance to showcase themselves. As expected, tons of eager prospects came out to the beautiful RDV Center in Orlando to prove their talent.

Here are the standouts from the Top 20 game on Sunday:

Jarrid Rhodes, 2014 SF: Rhodes passed the look test from the start of camp on Saturday. At 6-foot-6 with his length and athleticism, he stood out among the rest of his peers. He has great perimeter skills, as he can hit shots from long range and get to the basket. He currently has no schools on him, but that is bound to change.

Joshua Thompson, 2014 SF: This 6-foot-3 wing man made plays throughout the weekend, especially above the rim. Thompson used his athleticism to challenge defenders, whether it was on the break or in the half-court. With dunk after dunk, he also managed to keep the defense honest by knocking down some mid-range shots.

Glen Owen, 2014 CG: Owen was one of the few pure scorers at camp. At different times during the two days, he showed the ability to score from all three levels. He utilized his strength and athleticism to finish at the rim, and while his shot does have its problems, he was still able to hit some perimeter shots. The 6-foot guard also proved he has the ability to be an above-average defender.

Malik William, 2017 PF: Despite being a 2017 prospect, William set the tone on the defense end of the floor from the beginning of camp. With his length, the 6-foot-6 power forward blocked shot after shot during game-play. He still needs time to grow into his body and to refine his skills some more, but there is no doubt, this kid has a chance to be a successful basketball player.

Cuyler “Stuckey” Mosley, 2014 CG: Mosley proved to the staff and the rest of the campers why he was named a Future150 All-American last year. The 6-foot-3 combo guard scored at will when he wanted and set himself apart from the rest of the field. He is looking to move more into a point guard role, and his excellent court vision proved he has the ability to play both guard positions at the next level.

Thys Adams II, 2014 SG: There was no better vocal leader in the camp than Adams. Whether it was in drill work or during games, he talked constantly, encouraging his teammates and even teaching. He also proved he was one of the best pure shooters the camp had to offer, as he nailed several perimeter shots. With his high motor, high IQ, and leadership, the rising senior is a coach’s dream.

Nick Martin, 2014 SG: If anyone challenged Adams for the best shooter in the camp, it would have to be Future150 alum Nick Martin. Martin cashed in on several three-pointers per game, whether it was off the dribble or off the catch. He came into camp known as a good shooter, but after this weekend, we can confirm he is a great shooter.

Monte Greene, 2016 PG: Greene was one of the quickest guards to showcase his skills in Orlando. At 5-foot-7, he handled the ball extremely well and attacked in transition, leading to easy buckets for himself and other teammates. He also used his quickness and hands to force steals against the opposing teams. He may be small, but Greene made a huge impact on his team.

Corey Sanders, 2015 PG: The most exciting (and most athletic) kid to watch this weekend was a no-doubter in Corey Sanders. The Showtime Ballers point guard showed why he already holds several offers and more schools are hot on his trail. He used his quickness to get to the rim, where he showed off his ridiculous jumping ability to finish with contact. The scoring point guard also showed off some range, but he generally likes to play at the rim.

Elijah Farrakhan, 2015 PG: The 5-foot-10 point guard was one of the most unselfish floor generals, despite the camp atmosphere. He used his quickness and speed to get in the lane and facilitate for his teammates. He scored at the rim, as well driving and kicking to open shooters on the outside. He has great vision and is the point guard all players would like to play alongside.

Dwayne Bacon, 2015 SG: Dwayne came into the camp as the highest profile recruit nationally, and he didn't disappoint with his play. The 6'6" guard is a smooth wing who is confident with the ball in his hands, and even more confident playing off the ball. He uses his length and awareness to score easy baskets at the rim as well as in transition, and his jump shot has improved over the past few months. Overall, a big weekend from the prospect with recent offers from Louisville and Miami (Fl).

Lance Tejada, 2014 PG: Lance entered the camp as the #100 prospect in the class nationally. After his performance from last weekend, he will be rising in the next rankings update. As expected, his court vision and ball skills were top notch, but the consistency on his jump shot and improved athleticism are what had the staff raving all weekend long. A hard worker and a bright kid, one college program will be very lucky to land him in the near future.

David Efianayi, 2014 SG: The length and athleticism of the 6-foot-2 wing had us intrigued from the beginning of camp. He regularly played above the rim and was pulling down rebounds over much taller prospects all weekend. He has a textbook jumper that is smooth and consistent out to the three point line. His bread and butter though, is his ability to pull-up off-the-dribble, which is a lost art in today's game. He had the look of a low major prospect last weekend, and it would be wise for local schools to get on him, and quick.

Alan Morgan, 2014 PG: A true point guard who has extremely good vision vision in both the half court and full court setting, the 5-foot-10 Morgan was an assist machine at camp. He has solid ball skills and finds his teammates in the right situations the majority of the time. He also has a very high basketball IQ. While his shooting needs some work, there's no denying his unselfishness on offense.

Domenico Santiago, 2014 PF: The most efficient prospect in the camp just may have been the undersized power forward. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound big man is mobile on the block and has unexpected finesse on the inside. He finishes well with both hands around the rim and can knock down jumpers out the three-point line as well. Very undervalued kid due to the "tweener" label. He will make one college coach look very smart when he signs his letter of intent.

Matthew Scelsi, 2014 PF: The 6-foot-6 power forward is a mobile big man who is an extremely physical prospect. He has a big time motor and rebounds the basketball at a high rate. Also a very well-conditioned player who runs the floor consistently for easy baskets. He has good timing and instincts, which help him to block several shots per game. Extremely hard worker on both ends of the floor.

Marshawn Blackmon, 2015 SG: Marshawn is a slashing wing prospect with a college-ready frame. He loves to get to the rim, but he also showed an ability to knock down mid-range jump shots consistently at the camp. While is dribbling and shooting could use some fine-tuning, there's no denying that the St. Louis prospect has a chance to become a solid low major prospect over the next few years.

Preston Whitfield, 2015 SG: A 6-foot-1 high energy shooting guard prospect who plays very well in transition. He finishes consistently at the rim and knows when to attack the basket and when to take the open jump shot. He also showed a willingness to play intense man defense at the camp, which is something you don't see very often in a camp setting.

Randy Motilalsingh, 2015 PG: Randy is a flashy point guard prospect who has advanced passing skills. He also has superb court vision and plays well in a transition setting. He plays with the swagger of a guard who is always in control of the game, no matter the situation. While his jump shot wasn't falling early on in camp, he was on fire from deep in the Top 20 All-Star game.

Tajae Anderson, 2015 PG/SG: The 5-foot-10 combo guard is an extremely smooth point guard who has a pretty jump shot. He can stroke it from anywhere on the floor, and possesses the rare mid-range game. He is also a solid facilitator and gets the ball to his teammates in good situations on the offensive end. Very fun player to watch.
