Aiken, SC (Future150) -- Teams from all over the Southeast were ready to take the floor during 2013 #PeachSt Summer Showcase action on Thursday. Here is who the Future150 staff was fond of by days end...

Matthew Fisher-Davis, 2014 SG, Charlotte Nets: If you are looking for one of the beest long range shooters in the rising senior class, the Charlotte Christian (NC) wing is a prospect to admire. He has a beautiful stroke and can shoot over defenders using his 6-foot-5 frame. He doesn't force bad shots and is a fundamental passer who makes good decisions in the half-court setting. Radford, Liberty, and Gardner-Webb have already offered. He has also heard from Virginia recently, as well as several other schools.

Gabe DeVoe, 2014 CG, Team Heat: One of the standout stars of our 2012 Future150 Camp Series, the 6-foot-4 combo guard has been making the transition to point guard over the past several months. He looked extremely comfortable with the ball in his hands on Thursday, keeping defenders at bay with a variety of moves. When he's playing off-the-ball, he is a devastating shooter from deep, which is his calling card. Some of the latest schools to offer him include Clemson and Xavier, showing you how highly regarded he is on the east coast.

Nick Martin, 2014 SG, Showtime Ballers: After visiting the Citadel last week, Nick brought his "A game" to the floor during the Thursday session of games. He is averaging over 10 points per game during Peach State action and shooting over 50% from the field. He has shown the ability to take his defender off-the-dribble and knock down contested pull-up jump shots, which helps his stock rise in the eyes of college coaches. 

Danjel Purifoy, 2015 SG, Atlanta Xpress: The 6-foot-6 Alabama native looks the part of a high major prospect, and his game is beginning to catch up with his body language. He handles the ball well and has no trouble bringing the ball up the floor against full court pressure. He knocked down a few long jump shots in his opening day game on Thursday, and was active around the rim rebounding. If he gets the ball in transition he almost always finishes, usually with a big time flush.

Amir Warnock, 2014 PF, Southern Kings: The 6-foot-8 big man plays a finesse game although he has a wide frame on the block. He runs the floor extremely well and is always looking for the ball in transition. Although he is a below-the-rim prospect, he is crafty with the basketball when finishing around the rim. He has decent footwork in the post, and once he develops a few go-to moves and begins to play more physical basketball complimenting his big frame, he will be hard to stop at a low major level.

Leron Black, 2014 PF, Team Thad: With head coaches from Illinois, Florida, and Baylor in the gym for his Thursday evening game, Leron game out with intensity that we haven't seen in quite some time. He was an absolute animal on the glass both offensively and defensively, finishing the game with 11 rebounds. He was also running the floor in transition as hard as we've ever seen, and was finishing everything around the rim with thunderous slam dunks on several occasions. Fully healed from his ankle injury from early spring, he looks very much like a top 15 prospect once again.

Doral Moore, 2015 C, Atlanta Xpress: One prospect who has really picked up steam on the recruiting trail over the past few months has been the 6-foot-11 Luella High School (GA) center. It's evident as soon as you start watching him that he is a raw prospect, but he has a world of upside. He blocks shots regularly and rebounds well in his area. We loved how he battled in the post for positioning in the low block, and once he received the ball, he used a series of moves to get fouled in the paint. Has a chance to be one of the special big men in his class.

Willie Carmichael, 2014 PF, Florida Tarheels: One of the hardest working kids we saw so far at Peach State has been the Wekiva High School (FL) prospect. The 6-foot-6 power forward is undersized for the position, but makes up for it with his high motor as well as his rebounding and shot-blocking skills. He works extremely hard on the offensive end, jostling for position on each and every possession. Can become a good fit at the right low major program, without a doubt.

Jabari McGhee, 2014 PF, Atlanta Xpress: With offers from Arkansas, Memphis, and West Virginia wrapped up for the 6-foot-7 reclassified bruiser, the July evaluation period is his last chance to have even more high majors get involved in his recruitment. So far, so good. The power forward was excellent rebounding the ball against a big and talented Team Thad front line of Leron Black and Marcanvis Hymon, several times outjumping and outmuscling the highly ranked duo. He also used his football build to finish at the rim with contact on several occasions.
