Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With state championships being awarded all across the country, the high school season of the senior class is coming to a close. Prospects are wrapping up magical high school careers while others are preparing for high school all-star games.

With the 2014 class on its way out the door, it's time to release the Future150 All-American team. With only 15 spots available, it was extremely difficult picking the roster of talented prospects. Here is who we thought was most deserving of the distinction:

1st Team:

PG - Emmanuel Mudiay, Prime Prep Academy (TX): The catalyst for Prime Prep, the 6-foot-4 explosive point man will have SMU fans drooling all offseason as they wait on their prized recruit. He's an instant impact performer who is capable of putting up big numbers in perhaps his only season on campus. 

SG - Isaiah Whitehead, Lincoln (NY): A big summer and a monstrous senior season lands Whitehead on the first team. Another instant impact freshman, he will be counted on from day one to put up big numbers for a talented young Seton Hall team next year.

SF - Stanley Johnson, Mater Dei (CA): A prospect who has continually improved throughout his high school career, Johnson is a testament to where hard work and determination can get you. Don't be surprised to see him continue to hone his craft this summer before heading to Arizona. 

PF - Cliff Alexander, Curie (IL): The most dominant high school prospect this high school season, Alexander has proved to be a man among boys everywhere he has played this winter, and his strength and explosiveness will be welcome additions at Kansas next season.

C - Jahlil Okafor, Whitney Young (IL): Duke will be bringing in a monster recruiting class next season, and the 6-foot-11, 270-pound center will be the anchor. A true post player, he will bring immediate results to the Blue Devils next season on the interior.

2nd Team:

PG: Tyus Jones, Apple Valley (MN): Jones is as steady of a point guard that has come through the high schools ranks in the past five years, if not longer. His IQ and vision set him apart from other point guards and he should flourish at Duke next season.

SG: Kelly Oubre, Findlay Prep (NV): One of the more gifted scorers in this class, Oubre showed he is capable of being a great defender and playmaker as well this year. He has the type of athleticism and length that few others have.

SF: Justise Winslow, St. John's (TX): Winslow is a big wing who can do a little bit of everything and brings intangibles to the table. He is built like a small tank and uses his physicality to be an elite level defender. Simply put, Winslow is the type of player that wins games. 

PF: Kevon Looney, Hamilton (WI): Looney is a matchup problem at the four thanks to his shooting and ability to put it on the floor. He isn't the quickest player in the class but is very skilled. He will have an immediate impact at UCLA.

C: Myles Turner, Trinity (TX): The biggest riser this year, Turner may have more upside than anyone else in his class. He is the total package and it is easy to see why so many schools are still fighting hard to get a pledge from him. Turner does a lot of things well but might be the best defensive big in this class.

3rd Team:

PG: Chris Chiozza, White Station (TN): Another prospect who had a sizzling AAU season last year, the 5-foot-11 blur is a tough-as-nails guard who is fearless attacking the rim and will defend for 94 feet. He will be a fan favorite at Florida.

SG: Rashad Vaughn, Findlay Prep (NV): One of the most complete perimeter scorers in the nation, the UNLV commit will light up scoreboards from day one out west. A player with excellent size and shooting range, he will be a dangerous Mountain West player.

SF: Daniel Hamilton, St. John Bosco (CA): A kid with an extremely high ceiling, the 6-foot-6 wing has turned up his level of play this high school season. He continually improves his game and will emerge as a star at Connecticut over the next few years. 

PF: Trey Lyles, Arsenal Tech (IN): A blue collar forward, Lyles plays a physical brand of basketball built on punishing and wearing down the defense. He couples that with an ability to stretch the defense with a soft perimeter touch and the ability to put the ball on the floor, making him a dangerous option.

C: Karl TownsSt. Joseph's (NJ): The 7-foot post prospect is one of the most fun to watch prospects in the country. Not only can he cause damage in the paint, but he also has shooting range out to the three-point arc and an ability to handle the basketball as well. Very versatile kid who will make his mark at Kentucky.
