Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The opening day of the Power 24 at Emory University in Atlanta gave many underclassmen the opportunity to step up in front of college coaches.

Many of these youngsters did not disappoint, as several freshmen and sophomores proved they will be able to play at the next level and be recruited.

Underclassmen proved they belong on Friday. Here is a list of the players that stood out:

Christian Turner, 2016 PG, Heat Check: Each time the Future150 staff has seen Turner play this AAU season, he has progressively gotten better. The 5-foot-10 point guard continued to prove he has such good leadership on the court, as he controls the pace of the game. He also proved that he can score the ball with both hands; the southpaw showed off an impressive right-handed floater added to his arsenal.

Malik William, 2017 PF, Triple Threat: William was one of the breakout players at our Orlando camp in June. He continued his stellar performance at the Power 24, as he repeatedly blocked shots. The 6-foot-6 forward also showed off his versatility, as he hit shots from the outside and proved he was mobile with the ball in his hands.

John Petty, 2017 SF, Birmingham Storm Elite: The biggest performance of the night belonged to John Petty. The 6-foot-4 wing man proved he was more than worthy to be playing with the Storm, as he scored the ball at will. The rising freshman was scoring at all three levels, but the most damage came from getting to the rim. He will find himself rising in the rankings in the next few weeks.

Lucas Johnson, 2015 SF, Upward Stars: Johnson was another very promising prospect to showcase his talents at the Power 24. At 6-foot-5, he showed a great understanding of the game and can be labeled as a basketball player. He is skilled, as he showed the ability to hit shots and put the ball on the floor countless times. With his versatility, Johnson thrived at taking advantage of mismatches on offensive. VCU, South Carolina, Georgia, Memphis, Clemson, and Georgia Tech are among the schools interested now, according to his father.

Ronald Bell, 2016 PF, Georgia Stars: Bell showed off his will and determination with a solid performance in the low post. The 6-foot-6 high-motor machine used his explosiveness and quickness to out-duel bigger post players down low. He finished at the rim (usually with contact), where he used his craftiness to draw fouls and get easy shots.

Victor Enoh, 2017 C, Atlanta Rockafellas: Enoh will easily be one of the most physical players to enter high school basketball next season. At 6-foot-7, the youngster proved he was steps ahead of his class with his strength and grit. Enoh was a ferocious rebounder, whether it was on offense or defense. The rising freshman dunked everything in his reaching distance, showing his authority on the court.

Kendrick Summerour, 2017 PG, Birmingham Storm Elite: Summerhour was a very vital player for the Storm Friday night, as he did what a point guard should do: set his teammates up for easy baskets. The 5-foot-8 lead guard did a fantastic job of pushing the ball in transition and getting into the lane. He drew defenders from help-side, leading to easy dump off assists to the big men down low.

Jaquan Murray, 2015 PF, Upward Stars: Murray was another impressive post player that showcased his intangibles at the opening day of the Power 24. The 6-foot-7 forward has a knack for blocking shots, many of which barely missed college coaches evaluating talent. He was very physical with his game, as he bullied several opposing players on the offensive end. He showed some nice preliminary post moves, but those will have to continue to improve.
