Pottsville, PA (Future150) -- While the class of 2019 is just beginning to pick up steam in basketball circles nationally, it certainly hasn't stopped many standouts from making waves on the AAU trail this spring. Below are five prospects who've really helped raise their stock in the months of April and May.

Tyger Campbell, PG, Spiece Indy Heat: The 6'0" floor general has been a national name for a few years now, and while other prospects his age have been growing rapidly, there have been some doubt as to how his game would progress going forward, along with what his ceiling is as a player. Well, this spring, he has laid some of those doubts to rest. Standing out with both We All Can Go & Spiece Indy Heat on the 17U EYBL circuit this spring, he picked up offers from Michigan State and TCU, cementing his status as an elite point guard in the freshman class right now.

Josiah James, SG, TMP: The 6'5" wing has very good feel and ball skills at an early age, and is already battle tested, playing and starting at the 17U level. The son of former Michigan State Spartan Kurt James and brother of current High Point player K.J. James, it looks like Josiah is set for a similar division one path. College of Charleston and Charleston Southern have recently offered the South Carolina native, and that's just the beginning for the lanky southpaw.

Scottie Lewis, SF, Team Rio National: An incredible leaper, maybe even the quickest leaper in his class, the 6'5" wing is more of a small forward at this juncture due to his inconsistent jump shot. However, his transition ability, ball skills and recent over improvements have us thinking a switch to shooting guard will happen sooner rather than later. Offers are already on the table from Florida, Maryland, Notre Dame, Seton Hall, St. John's, Temple, VCU & Villanova.

Armando BacotPF, Team Takeover Orange: A true beefy big man at 6'8", the Episcopal (VA) power forward has good footwork, solid post moves and soft touch with either hand. His long arms make him a force on the defensive end, and he is a natural rebounder. Central Florida has already offered.

Josh Pierre-Louis, PG, Sports U: The 5'10" floor general is a tough lead guard who thrives on constant contact around the rim. He's a good decision-maker on the offensive end with toughness on defense as well. He consistently fills up the stat sheet, and local program Seton Hall has already offered him a scholarship.
