Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- Future150 coverage from the Fab Frosh camp in Atlanta continued on Sunday as the All-Star games were on deck.  The Top 40 and Top 20 games featured some of the top players in the 2016 Class. 

Here are the top performers in the camp as well as some the best All-Star performances which stood out.

Braxton Blackwell: (PF-Nashville, TN) This 6-foot-6 big man showed he was one of the most versatile players in the entire camp. Blackwell consistently showed off his well-rounded game, whether it was rebounding, scoring, or playing point guard in transition. The CPA product started the break after grabbing the rebound many times for his squad, leading to layups and easy shots for his teammates. He legitimately has the skills to play the 1-4.

Josh Langford: (SG-Huntsville, AL) Langford has performed better this summer, but despite his sub-par performance, he is still one of the top overall players in the class. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard is physically stronger and more mature than most guards his age, allowing him to make strong moves to the basket and finish with contact.  He plays with a high basketball IQ and just knows how to play.  With a bounce back performance on Sunday, Langford finished strong.

VJ King: (SF-Akron, OH) The name is very popularly, as King has drawn comparisons to other great stars, including Kevin Durant. With that being said, the youngster did not disappoint. The 6-foot-5 wing creates his own shot extremely well, and he is money from mid-range. King can score at all three levels, and he often draws fouls when driving in the lane. He is easily one of the best players in the 2016 class.

Jayson Tatum: (SF-St. Louis, MO) The St. Louis area was represented very well at the Fab Frosh, but the most intriguing player of the group was Tatum. Tatum, who looks to be a small forward at the next level, was one of the more smooth players at the camp.  He has a chance to be one of the top-15 prospects in his class. Tatum has handles, can shoot from the outside, and he is very crafty with his game. He resembled Kyle Anderson with his skill-set and versatility.

Eron Gordon: (SG-Indianapolis, IN) The buzz has also surrounded Eron Gordon, the brother of former Indiana star and now member of the New Orleans Hornets Eric Gordon. Eron has a good future as a combo guard, as he spent most of the camp getting in the lane and finishing at the rim. He is extremely quick with the ball, yet he is smart while going so fast. Very seldom did he make mistakes throughout the weekend. He also threw down the dunk of the weekend in the Top 20 all-star game that is worth noting.

Aaron Augustin: (PG-Atlanta, GA) We have followed Augustin very closely this spring, and as usual, he performed very well at the Fab Frosh. While Moore may have been the best shooter, Augustin was probably the best overall and pure point guard the camp had to offer. He has a solid game, whether you refer to his ability to score, pass, or handle the ball. Augustin had a good showing in the Top 20 game; in one sequence, he fit three back-to-back-to-back three-pointers, followed by a great behind-the-back pass to a teammate for a layup.

Carson Williams: (SF-Louisville, KY) Williams was another pleasant surprise from the camp. He wasn’t the most talented player, but he was consistent and you knew what you were getting game in and game out from the Kentucky native. Williams’ game is parallel to Kevin Love; the 6-foot-5 big man was mostly a trash man, but he did it at a great rate. In the Top 20 all-star game, he pulled in 10 rebounds and had 12 points. Most of those rebounds were off the offensive glass, leading to his easy buckets

Al Eichelberger- (PF-Saginaw, MI) Eichelberger is a man child on the boards and plays with a high motor.  He is sneaky athlete and move extremely well for a play his size.  The first play of the Top 20 All-star game he came down the lane on a dribble drive and surprise everyone with a thunder dunk.  He has good footwork in the post and can score with a mid rang jumper.  As his body improves and his strength improves as he matures, look for him to do nothing but get better.

Rakym Felder- (SG-Fort Mills, SC) Felder has a mans body and knows how to use it.  He has a power game what was pretty much unmatched all weekend long.  He is a slasher who can finish through contact.  As the camps "Best" on ball defender, he locked down Josh Langford who is the classes top SG. His motor was clearly what set him apart from his fellow campers.

Cameron Diggs- (PF-Mobile, AL) Diggs is a super long player who is a great rebounder and finisher around the rim.  He a sneaky shot blocker from the back side.  He runs the floor well and has a great face up mid range jumper.  As he gets stronger his overall game will improve.  He was clearly one of the top players in the gym with the most upside to his game.
