KETTERING, OH (Future150) -- As day two of Flyin' to the Hoop has wrapped up, let us take a look at some of the top performers from the late games:

Caleb Swanigan (2015/Homestead): The highly-touted senior Swanigan was a wrecking ball in the paint all game long against Northland, finishing with 22 points and 19 rebounds as his Homestead squad cruised to an easy 76-48 win. Swanigan’s prowess around the rim makes him nearly an impossible player to guard when the defender cannot truly match his size.

Malik Harrison (2016/Walnut Ridge): The former VCC Ohio Warriors forward brought his A-game to the James S Trent Arena on Saturday night, finishing with a team-high 22 points and 12 rebounds, leading his Walnut Ridge squad to an 51-44 win over in-state foe Thurgood Marshall. Harrison’s game continues to grow, and if he plays like this on the big stage more often, his star will shine bright.

Alani Moore (2016/Montrose Christian): Despite having his potential game-tying layup bounce out, the junior point guard was everything his Montrose Christian team needed and more. The 5-foot-10 point guard slashed and dashed his way to a team-high 33 points on Saturday night against Franklin in the nightcap. The junior did an excellent job on both ends of the floor, and if he plays like that as the season moves along, he will continue to add offers to a list that already includes Penn State and Rhode Island.

Luke Kennard (2015/Franklin): Not that there is any shock here, but the Duke-commit Kennard set an Ohio HS record tonight, making 34 of 44 free-throws en route to a game-high 47 points. The future Blue Devil did not just score on Saturday, but also was an excellent distributor, especially early on, getting his teammates involved early as his team, Franklin HS, hung on late to an 81-79 victory in the Day 2 nightcap.

DJ Hoskins (2016/Thurgood Marshall): The junior guard thrived early on for his Thurgood Marshall team on Saturday afternoon, scoring eight of his 10 points in the opening two quarters. His precision passing and high IQ for the game will help the junior’s stock quickly rise. Playing for King James AAU in the summer, Hoskins is a definite threat to score on all three levels, and when the outside shot is falling, he is a truly tough player to defend.

Jalen Coleman (2015/La Lumiere): Just a couple weeks since our last viewing of Coleman, and the senior continues to do nothing but knock down big threes, and this time was no different, finishing with a game-high 30 points as his La Lumiere squad fought hard, eventually falling to Prolific Prep. Coleman knocked down a game-tying triple with :26.0 seconds left in regulation, knotting the score at 65.

Josh Jackson (2016/Prolific Prep): There is no doubt that the 2016 forward Jackson is one of the best players in the class, and he definitely showed flashes of that tonight. The junior was getting to the rim with ease and giving the La Lumiere defense fits all night long. His battle with Coleman during the third quarter felt like an old fashioned back-and-forth scoring duel, as the two traded baskets on consecutive possessions.
