Jersey City, NJ (Future150) -- With the high school season winding down and AAU season being right around the corner, college coaches are firmly focused on the class of 2018. With that in mind, Future150 ranks the top ten juniors in the state of New Jersey. Players who are from New Jersey, but play their high school ball in another state, were not eligible for this list:

1.| Jahvon Quinerly, PG, Hudson Catholic: Quinerly has always been a big name in the recruiting world, but the lead guard has taken his game to another level this season. He has been equal parts scorer and distributor this year for the Hawks, and has made a case to be considered the top point guard in the country in the process. 

2.| Lou King, SF, Hudson Catholic: Upside is the name of the game for King, who has the size and skill to be a terror on the perimeter at the next level. He has found his footing at Hudson Catholic and looks to be turning the corner from prospect to producer. 

3.| Naz Reid, PF, Roselle Catholic: RC's success begins with Reid, a 6-foot-10 big man with stretch four capabilities. Another skilled forward with insane upside, Reid has turned in some monster performances; including a 36 point, 18 rebound performance in front of Kentucky last month. 

4.| Luther Muhammad, SG, Hudson Catholic: Muhammad may be a bit closer to his ceiling than some of the others above him, but he is certainly just as productive, if not more so at this point. A physically imposing 6-foot-4 scoring guard, he also provides value as a defender and has the ability to go for 30 any time he sets foot on the floor as well. 

5.| Jalen Carey, PG, Immaculate Conception: Carey is an intriguing lead guard prospect because he has ideal size for the position and is a crafty finisher around the rim. He always plays with his head up and has a knack for making his teammates around him better. 

6.| Jordan Walker, PG, The Patrick School: Walker may reclass to 2017 in the coming weeks, so this may be his only entry on this list. A 5-foot-11 floor general, he is capable of running an offense in the half court or on a fast break. He is also an explosive scorer who loves to take and make big shots. 

7.| Tavon Jones, SF, Linden: Jones has come on very strongly in the past few months and is rising up this list because of it. A powerful 6-foot-5 wing, he is athletic enough to get into the lane and finish at the rim. Like Muhammad, he is a very good defender as well. 

8.| Majur Majok, C, Roselle Catholic: Majok is an elite shot-blocking 7-footer who moves incredibly well and has a ridiculous wingspan. The big man is still a work in progress on the offensive end of the floor, where his hands will need to be worked on; but the future is bright. 

9.| Valdir Manuel, PF, The Patrick School:  Another upside pick, Manuel has been playing behind future Kentucky forward Nick Richards all year and has had limited opportunities. He runs the floor very well and has shown that he is capable of being a very good shot-blocker in time. 

10.| Kenny Jones, PG, Mater Dei: One of the more underrated guards in the state, Jones looked like a potential A-10 player over the summer. He hasn't slowed down this high school season, as the 6-foot playmaker has the speed and vision to make an impact on almost any game.
