New Orleans, LA (Future150) -- The UA Association this year decided to incorporate the 2018 classes in their league.  This class has produced some of the top nationally ranked players looking to make their name in front of the college coaches.  Let's take a look at a few underclassmen that caught our eye and performed well this past weekend.

Class of 2018

The 2018 class is loaded with top notch point guards and many of them are playing in the UAA. Tyler Harris of Team Thad out of Memphis was one PG that had a huge weekend.  His gritty, hard-nosed play made him stand out on the defensive end, while his shot-making ability from the 3-point line did on offense.  In the game versus DC Premier, Harris made 3 consecutive three pointers under the two minute mark. It propelled them to a victory.

The Northeast is known for its point guard play and 2018 Jahvon Quinerly of Sports U is next in line.  

You won't find a more under control PG in the class. His demeanor and feel for the game are what makes him so good.  He just knows how to play the game the right way.  He possesses a nice skill set with his handles, and also the ability to make shots.  Look for him to make a jump in the rankings next update after his performance this past weekend.

Team Charlotte is known for its guard play after watching them last summer on the UA circuit.  2018 PG Kody Shubert is the next man up.  His game kinda reminds us of former NBA star Jason Williams of the Sacromento Kings.  He has a great first step and sick handles, which kept his defenders off balance all weekend long.  He showed great feel and court vision, which makes it easy to see why his teammates love him.  Solid overall performance this past weekend.

Former NBA player Manute Bol has a son and he plays for KC Run GMC.  His name is 2018 PF Bol Bol and he stands 6-foot-11 inches. Bol has extremely long arms and is really skilled.  This combo forward may be slight in frame, but he makes up for it in the skill department.  

He showed he can handle the rock and knock down the 3-ball like his pops.  Bol is one of the very few that can affect the game on both ends of the floor by just being on the floor.  Look from him to make a push up the rankings next update.

The last point forward that comes to mind is NBA-pro Kyle Anderson of San Antonio Spurs.  Class of 2018 CF Khavon Moore fits that bill to a tee.  At 6-foot-7 inches, Moore is long, athletic and quick enough to guard four positions on the floor.  The one word that comes to mind when you think about his game is "Competitor". He competes until the final buzzer and showed the ability to score in bunches.  Moore's court vision is sick too.  He is definitely trending upward.

Houston is a hot bed for talent in the Southwest and the state of Texas. The Houston Defenders are always loaded and that was prevalent again this year.  Class of 2018 SG Jaylon Williams is just one of the many trying to fill the Harrison twins' shoes.  

Williams has long arms and a good body for a player his age.  He is really athletic and loves attacking the rim off the dribble.  His best attribute this past weekend was his ability to rebound the ball on both ends.  Tons of upside to his game.

One of the new kids on the block is 2018 SF Rodgerick Brown of Team Thad.  At times during the weekend, he  put his team on his back and led them to victory.  Brown is a great athlete and a tenacious defender.  His ability to block shots and rebound affected games the most.  He was one of the better finishers we saw this past weekend. Gotta love how hard he plays.

Dallas is one of those cities that is always loaded with talented young players.  The SYF Players are one of those teams that is loaded again this year.  

Devonire Glass (2018) was a scoring machine this past weekend.  He can score inside and out.  He was at his best when attacking the rim and get offensive rebound put backs.  He never gives up on a play and his teammates feed off his energy. At 6-foot-5 inches, he has the frame and length to play multiple positions.
