Carrollton, TX (Future150) -- Contributions made by: Corbin Osby and Ani Umana.

PrimeTime Sports hosts the D-Town Roundball Classic in Dallas this weekend which consisted of an competitive high school division. Players showed out for the chance of exposure and here are the top high school players from Saturday.

Udo Onyekwere 2018 PF, North Texas Wolves: What Onyekwere lacks in height, he makes up with his motor and heart. The undersized 4 man is very physical inside, which allows him to score over bigger defenders.

Emeka Obukwelu 2016 C, Top Achievers: A 6-foot-7 post with soft hands Obukwelu scores from 5-10 feet.  He has solid post moves, especially with his turnaround jumper over his left shoulder.  Obukwelu still needs to work on his fluidity with the moves as he looks mechanical. Right now he is a projected D2 player.  College hoop is a very attainable gooal for Emeka.

Jeremiah Wiley 2017 PG, Top Achievers: Wiley is a quick guard that scored efficiently today from inside and out. Whether it was a floater or layup Wiley converted. He also showed the ability to shoot from beyond the arc.  He has to be smarter with passes, but Wiley has the potential to be a really solid guard.

Dominick Ford 2016 CG, Top Achievers: Ford plays calm and in control. The 6-foot-3 guard has the ability to run the point.  He excels at creating for others and is a solid finisher inside. His jump shot is not consistent, which allows defenders to back off from him a little bit.  He possesses ideal height and length for a guard and scoring inside makes him a good college prospect 

Caleb Quinney 2015 C, Dallas Humility: The 6-foot-6 unsigned senior post has great touch from the free throw line extended. He is physical inside and a good passer from the block.  He showed the ability to pass through double teams.

CJ Weathers 2017 SG, Plano Wolves: Weathers is about a 6-foot-5 shooting guard and he has a good motion on his shoot off the catch-and-shoot. Weathers is a high level offensive rebounder that defends multiple positions, as well.

Jeremy Richmond 2017 CG, Plano Wolves: Richmond plays smart and attacks the paint hard. He has a solid pull-up jumper and moved well laterally on defense today. He needs to work on polishing his handles to become a true guard.

Jayvon Franklin 2017 CF, Arkansas Soldiers: Jayvon has tightened his handles since the last time the staff saw him. He is a freak athlete that has a smooth jumper from the high post and has shown the ability to hit the three from time to time.

BJ Thompson 2017 CF, Arkansas Soldiers: The 6-foot-8 wing is a player to look our for. A definite mid major talent that plays good on ball defense and plays above the rim. Thompson showed out on Saturday playing very physical in the post and from the perimeter.

Adam Smith- 2018 SG, Kingdom Elite: Smith is a knock down shooter that lets it fly from deep, shooting most of his shots from the college line. His upper body strength is at a good level for his age.  He buried six three-pointers in a single game.

Preston Lawton- 2018 SF, ShowStoppers 2018: The spunky wing dances to the rim on creative pathways.  He can convert his free throws and hit mid-range jump shots.  The outside shot is still a significant work in progress.  Lawton definitely can go to the floater.  He knows how to attack the zone.

LaMaraye Brown- 2018 SG, ShowStoppers 2018: Through quick, shifty dribbles, Brown gets from coast to coast as well as any lead guard.  He needs to tighten up his handle for varsity level competition.  For now Brown resembles a young Darren Collison.  Fast with or without the ball.

Zack Douglas- 2018 G, Team Celtics: There was no better outside shooter in the building than Douglas.  He can run the point, but his team leaned on his amazing touch Saturday afternoon.  Douglas nailed three triples to help the Celtics pound their opening game opponent.  Douglas showed great body control in the air.  He routinely got behind the 2-3 zone.  Looking into his future all revolves around his ability to defend taller guards.
