Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- The 2014 Reebok Breakout Classic tipped off on Wednesday night, and the action was intense as soon as the evaluation period began at 5:00 p.m. with a battle of elite 2015 big men. However, several other prospects made a splash on the first night of action. With head coaches in attendance such as Kentucky's John Calipari, Louisville's Rick Pitino, UConn's Kevin Ollie & Michigan's John Beilein, here are some prospects who made headlines...

Abdulhakim Ado, 2016 PF/C, Hamilton Heights Christian (TN): The 6-foot-11 rising junior stole the show on the first night of action at camp. Using his high motor, athleticism & shot-blocking ability, he caused chaos for the opposition. Finishing the night with 8 points, 7 rebounds & 4 blocks, he may have been the most productive big man in attendance, and that's saying a lot.

Jean Marc Christ Koumadje, 2015 C, Montverde Academy (FL): The 7-foot-3 Montverde Academy (FL) center is another big man who stole headlines on the opening night of camp. The massive post was a terror on both offense and defense, dunking everything in his area and rebounding and blocking shots at a high rate. His performance earned him scholarship offers from UConn and Tennessee by the end of the first night of camp. Look for more of those high major offers to come by the end of the week.

Matt Moyer, 2016 PF, Gahanna Lincoln (OH): The 6-foot-8 Ohio native was impressive on Wednesday night by showing off his versatile skill set to the college coaches and media in attendance. Long and athletic, he was active around the rim, and even knocked down a triple as well. Look for his recruitment to really take off if he continues to have a big week.

Derryck Thornton, 2016 PG, Findlay Prep (NV): The 6-foot-2 California native continues to make his case as one of the best point guards in America, regardless of class. Wednesday night, in a battle with Oregon commit Kendall Small, he was dazzling, scoring 10 points, dishing out 7 assists & grabbing 5 rebounds. It's been a spectacular AAU season for the Findlay Prep (NV) guard, and he will be rewarded when we do our rankings update at the end of July.

Dwayne Bacon, 2015 SG/SF, Oak Hill Academy (VA): It continues to be an absolutely scorching spring for the 6-foot-6, muscular wing. On Wednesday night, he did whatever he wanted to do, toying with the defense all game long. He scored on all three levels and looked very much like the best player in the gym. He finished the night with 16 points on 5/8 shooting from the floor.

Jojo Anderson, 2015 PG, La Lumiere (IN): The 6-foot-3 combo guard was effective on the opening night of camp with his improved perimeter shooting and on-ball defense. He knocked down 2/3 triples and was active on defense, recording 2 steals and 2 rebounds as well. He plays at 100% at all times and is the type of unselfish winner every team needs.

Tyus Battle, 2016 G, Gill St. Bernard's: The 6-foot-5 wing is a physical specimen, and he showed off his improved game and frame on Wednesday night. Scoring 11 points on 3/6 shooting from the 3-point line, the Team Scan guard has obviously been working on his perimeter game to go along with his deadly slashing ability. With offers from the likes of Louisville, Kentucky & Arizona, it's obvious that he's an elite prospect in the rising junior class.
