Houston, TX (Future150) -- The 2014 Future150 Houston Camp Top 40 All-Star game was a back-and-forth tussle between talented prospects from around the region, and several kids made a name for themselves throughout the weekend.

Jacoby Ross, 2016 PG, Peabody Magnet (LA): What we really love about Jacoby's game is his ability to create for himself off-the-dribble, especially in the mid-range. He has good open court speed and displays solid court vision as well. As he continues to get stronger, his game should improve by leaps and bounds.

Ross Thompson, 2017 SF, Langham Creek (TX): A power player at 6-foot-3, Thompson uses his frame and length to be an inside-outside threat on offense. He rebounds the ball well and knows how to score on the low block. He also did a good job of balancing in his outside jump shot as well in order to keep defenses honest.

Donovan Byrd, 2016 PG/SG, Ross Sterling (TX): While only standing 5-foot-8, Byrd uses his blazing speed in the open floor as well as his explosive athleticism to create havoc for defenses. A streaky shooter, when he was feeling it, he was one of the most impressive prospects in the camp.

Devante Robinson, 2016 PG, Copperas Cove (TX): A prospect with blazing speed, the Copperas Cove (TX) standout may have been the fastest prospect in the camp from end-to-end. He uses his quick first step to get into the paint at will and showed that he can finish at the rim.

Ashton Charles, 2017 SF/PF, HCYA: Still a very raw prospect, the 6-foot-6 forward is beginning to come around. He rebounds the ball well on the defensive end and plays with a high motor. He also shows the ability to knock down shots out to 18 feet. Improved perimeter shooting will take his game to the next level

Noah Taylor, 2016 SG, Brazosport (TX): The 6-foot-4 wing is a skilled and versatile shooting guard who can get baskets by shooting from the outside or slashing to the basket. He is a physical wing who uses his strength to finish at the basket and plays tough on-ball defense as well.

Shelby Adams, 2017 SG, Judson (TX): Built to score the basketball, the 6-foot-3 Judson High School (TX) product uses his length and athleticism to score when slashing to the basket. While he has shown he can knock down jump shots, his biggest asset is his ability to attack the rim.

Alex Holcombe, 2016 PF, Fort Bend Marshall (TX): Since last year, the 6-foot-7 post has grown two inches and has become more of a physical post prospect in the process. He is a skilled rebounder and a good finisher around the rim. With added muscle, he can really become a force on the low block at the next level.

Chris Rossow, 2017 PG, Brazosport (TX): While there were bigger and stronger prospects at the camp, very few made as many good decisions with the ball in his hands as the 5-foot-9 floor general. He plays with a high IQ on the floor and seemingly always makes the right play on offense.

Knox Hellums, 2016 SG, Concordia Lutheran (TX): Size and skill can be a deadly combination, and the 6-foot-4 shooting guard has exactly that. Hellums can shoot it from deep and uses his length to do it over the top of the offense. He also plays with a high basketball IQ.

Hunter Quick, 2018 PF/C, Lake Jackson (TX): There is a world of potential in the 6-foot-7, 230-pound rising freshman. While most prospects his size are very uncoordinated and raw, Quick is extremely skilled. He is a force on both ends of the floor and should continue to be a force with added athleticism and conditioning.

Joshua Williams, 2017 PG, Thompkins (TX): Williams is a solid all around PG who understands how to make his teammates better. He loves to get out in transition and run while looking to get to the rim. He has great court vision, which he used to find open teammates. He will only get better as he matures into the position.  

Anthony Walker, 2017 PG, St. Mary's Hall (TX): Walker is a lead guard with a lot of promise. He was able to get to the rim with relative ease and looked to either finish at the rim or kick out to open teammates. Once his jumper continues to improve he has the chance to play D1 ball.

Eskor Edem, 2015 CG, Seven Lakes (TX): Edem is an intriguing combo-guard thanks to his ability to step out and knock down threes. He can get quick in a hurry and has a ton of confidence in his shot. He is also capable of creating his own shot.

Avery Mason, 2016 CG, Mckinney (TX): Mason is a wing with a solid frame and good strength. He is also a good passer who often made the correct passes that led to easy transition baskets. Perhaps his best skill throughout the weekend was his on-ball defense, where he created a number of turnovers and his man rarely got by him.

Destiny Stanley, 2017 SF, Elkins (TX): Stanley is a high-motor wing who has a ton of upside. He is able to attack the rim and is a very long prospect. Once he improves his jumper, look out.

Christian Williams2017 C, Cy Fair (TX): Williams is a big-bodied forward who uses his frame well and overpowers players on the block. He plays hard and attacks the glass like every rebound is his. He also showed the ability to score around the rim and has good touch.

Myles Hawthorne,2016 SF, Lake County Christian School (TX): Hawthorne is an intriguing prospect who is a long and lanky athlete. He shoots it well in the mid-range and showed that he can get to the rim as well. 

Richard Gold, 2015 C, Baytown Sterling (TX): Gold is an undersized 5 who has good strength and makes up for it with a high running motor. He has solid hands and grabs rebounds at their highest point. 

Noel Pinnock,2016 SF, Elkins (TX): Pinnock is a long and lanky combo-forward that plays hard and rebounds the ball fairly well. Once he tightens up his handle he should be able to play on the perimeter full time.
