Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- In their short history, the Reebok Breakout Classic Camp has attracted top talent from around the country, and each year, the field has gotten stronger.

After taking a look at the camp roster for this year, it looks like 2014 will be the strongest crop of talent the camp has ever put out, and Future150 staff will be at Philadelphia University covering all of the live period action starting at 5:00 p.m. this evening.

Here are a few names to look for as we get set for the event...

Dwayne Bacon, 2015 SG, Showtime Ballers: The 6'6" wing has been on an absolute tear this AAU season, and the Breakout Classic is where he could take his game to yet another level. Currently ranked as the #15 prospect in the country, the Oak Hill Academy (VA) product could be set for a big outing this week.

Skal Labissiere, 2015 C, Arkansas Wings: After being injured throughout the high school season, the 6-foot-11 post dominated when we saw him at the Real Deal in the Rock this spring, showing off his incredible skill and added toughness. When he is playing his best basketball, there aren't five better players in the 2015 class. Look for a big performance from our #6 prospect.

Diamond Stone, 2015 C, Young Legends: Another highly skilled post, the 6-foot-10 Dominican (WI) prospect could ultimately land in our #1 spot nationally in the class if he has a dominant week. After seeing him toy with smaller defenders this spring, we look forward to some high level matchups with other highly touted big men at camp.

Sacha Killeya-Jones, 2016 PF, Team Felton: We were enamored with the 6-foot-10 power forward this spring, who is blessed with excellent hands and footwork. We entered him into our national rankings at #102, which we believe is now proving to be much too low, especially if he has a monster week.

P.J. Dozier, 2015 PG, Upward Stars: After sitting out his junior season with a knee injury, the Spring Valley (SC) guard had a big week at NBA Top 100 Camp in June, proving that he's back in a big way. Not only has he used his time off to get stronger, but he has also grown and is now standing somewhere between 6'5" and 6'6", making him and even more dangerous matchup. 

Obviously, this is just a sample of some of the highlighted prospects who are at camp this week, and several players will burst onto the scene with big performances. Stay with Future150 all week long as we cover the event.
