Birmingham, AL (Future150) -- Football season is in high gear here in the South, basketball tends to take a back seat.  With high school basketball practice starting in 10 days or so, Future150 has started to filter its evaluations from the AAU summer and fall camp seasons.

Home base for Future150 is Birmingham and the state of Alabama is loaded with talent in the 2023 Class.  After viewing the class over the past 4 months, lets take a look at who the Top 10 players are in the class.

The class starts off with one of the best prospects in the Southeast PG RJ Johnson out of the Huntsville area and attends Grissom High School.  At 6-foot-3 inches tall, Johnson is a big bodied lead guard who can do it all.  His athleticism, unselfishness and scoring abilities have propelled him to the top of the list for the state of Alabama.  This high major prospect is getting better every time he steps on the floor. That upside to his game clearly puts him in the conversation for Top 30 in the country. #MakeUBeliever

A high energy wing who does it all on the floor in SF Julius Clark finds himslef at number two on the list.  Clark gets better every time we saw him play all summer long.  His competitive fire, abilitiy to rebound on both ends and stretch the floor to the three point line makes him a coaches dream.  With him transferring to Mountain Brook this fall look for his game to make huge strides over the next four months. #MrHustle

Next on the list at number three is a 6-foot-5 inch wing prospect out of West Morgan named SF Carson Muse.  He is highly skilled and can play 4 positions on the floor. Shooting the ball from long range, guarding multiple positions and scoring in bunches are three things that stand out when you watch him play.  His upside to go along with his basketball IQ are what make him special. #Underrated

When you think of a power player in the 2023 class CF Lebbeus Overton at 6-foot-4 inches has to come to mind. He checks in on the list at number four.  He is physical, has a football body and loves playing through contact when scoring. Being a difference maker on both ends of the floor is what makes him special. #Baller

The athletic, long, wiry and skilled prospcet from Gadsden CF Cade Phillips at 6-foot-7 inches checks in at #5 on our list.  This multi-sport athlete plays QB like his dad who played at Alabama in the late 90's.  Don't let that fool you though, Phillips is a baller and gets better everytime he steps on the floor.  He can shoot the ball from deep to go along with his 15-foot mid range jumper. #Mr.Versatility

The big man from Gardendale PF Kelby Collins at 6-foot-6 inches finds himself at #6 on the list.  Collins is a big bodied bruiser who loves to pound you in the paint.  He rebounds well on both ends, runs the floor well and can step out and shoot the 15-footer.  As his conditioning gets better look for him to make a push up the list. #BeastMode

On of the more intriguing prospects in the state is from North Alabama in PG Alex Odam who stands 6-foot-2 inches checks in at # 7.  Odam has been to the Elite 24 Camp where he stood out against some of the very best in the country.  His skill level shooting the ball from the three point line, court vision and making everyone around him better is what makes him special. #ScoringMachine

The Huntsville native PG Ja'Mari Arnold at 5-foot-11 inches is a scoring lead guard who can flat out score the rock. He checks in at #8 on our list. He has a good feel for the game, plays under control and a high basketball IQ.  His ball handling skills and good first step keeps his defenders off balance when he has the ball in his hands.  #Shifty

The South Alabama prospect PG Haaziq Loften Jr. at 5-foot-11 inches comes in a #9 on our list.  Lofton Jr. is a do it all type player who uses the dribble to get anywhere on the floor he chooses.  His quickness and downhill attacking style makes him tough to stop. #Playmaker

The Montgomery native PG John Green stands 6-foot tall and finishes our list at #10.  His ball handling skills, court vision and play making ability are what stand out when you watch him play.  This Elite24 Camp Alum gets better everytime we see him play.  #MrSteady
