KETTERING, OH (Future150) -- The third day of the 2015 Flyin' to the Hoop had some exciting twists and turns, with a mix of players of all ages contributing for their teams. Who's in?

Terrance Landers (2016/Dayton Dunbar): Playing with future Ohio State Buckeye AJ Harris, Landers was able to capitalize on a few of his nine assists, scoring 22 points as his Dunbar squad fought to stay close with an extremely tall La Lumiere team. Standing at just 6-foot-4, Landers was able to snag down four rebounds and was slick when converting on shots around the rim. Landers will be a key piece for the Wolverines as they attempt to make yet another run to a state championship.

Deandre Ayton (2017/Balboa): The sophomore big man did not get to showcase his game to the best of his ability today, but there were certainly flashes of why some thing he is the top-ranked player in the 2017 class. The 6-foot-10 big man rocks the rim and nearly finished with a double-double in Sunday’s loss to Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary. He had a team-high 10 points and nine rebounds for his Balboa squad.

Isaac Humphries (2016/La Lumiere): There is plenty of size in the La Lumiere frontcourt, and it all starts with the Australia-native Humphries. The seven-footer finished just a couple rebounds short of a double-double, scoring 15 points and snagging down eight rebounds, helping the Lakers complete a perfect weekend in Kettering. Humphries is still working on his footwork, but he is always able to finish around the rim and is also an excellent rebounder.

JoJo Anderson (2015/22ft Academy): Anderson was the best scoring guard in the gym on Sunday, and his quickness and agility was a key reason he was able to put up a team-high 31 points in a close loss to Shaker Heights. He hit some extremely timely shots and kept his 22ft Academy team in the game. Anderson is an unsigned senior, with offers from Nebraska, Auburn and Texas A&M among others.

Tervell Beck (2016/Cleveland CC): The junior forward was one of the bright spots for Cleveland Central Catholic in their win on Sunday afternoon. His 25 points and 8 rebounds helped the Ironmen to a big win, and his full offensive game was on display. Beck’s ability to control his body on the way to the rim makes him tough to stop, and he can also knock down shots from the outside as well. Beck is a solid prospect in Ohio in a loaded 2016 class.

Darius Harper (2016/Springfield): The 6-foot-9 junior did everything he could to keep his Springfield squad in the game versus Cleveland Central Catholic on Sunday. His 23 points and eight rebounds were both team-highs, and when he can throw his weight around he is an extremely tough match-up on the block. Harper’s game down low will only continue to develop, and when the agility catches up to his strength, he will be a definite high-major threat.

Dailyen Osborne (2017/Trotwood-Madison): Not even listed in the program, the sophomore wing surprised also with his game on the floor, finishing with 17 points and giving the Rams some key buckets in the second half as they pulled away from Stivers for a big non-conference win. Osborne came off the bench for the Rams and was extremely impressive, giving them a much needed offensive spark.

Henry Baddley (2016/Akron SVSM): Baddley has improved his game leaps and bounds from the summer, and the hard work is continuing to pay off for the Irish junior. He led his team in points, rebounds and steals on Sunday night as they cruised to an easy victory over first-year school Balboa (CA). Baddley is a rising player with a handful of mid-major offers that will only continue to grow.

Jalen Avery (2015/Shroder): After dishing out a school-record 20 assists  on Friday, the senior from Shroder was special yet again on Sunday. Avery finished with a game-high 25 points as Kent State, his future college, looked on very impressed. Avery brings a lot to the table in many different facets, but his ability to quickly score in bunches may just be his best quality. With Kent State graduating their starting point guard, Avery will definitely have a shot at some quality playing time in year one for the Golden Flashes.

Esa Ahmad (2015/Shaker Heights): When watching the West Virginia-signee Ahmad, one is accustomed to seeing the senior putting up big numbers in both points and assists. Ahmad had more of the former rather than the latter in his Flyin’ to the Hoop appearance, scoring 31 points and handing out five assists in front of future coach Bob Huggins as his team held off 22ft Academy 83-78. His agility has certainly improved since the summer, and he will be a solid player in his first year in Morgantown for the Mountaineers.

Jarron Cumberland (2016/Wilmington): Playing in one of Sunday night’s primetime games, the junior dazzled the Flyin’ to the Hoop crowd to the tune of 27 points. Cumberland’s game continues to grow and he is very smooth around the rim, always seemingly in the right place at the right time. There were plenty of mid- to high-majors in attendance for the game, as Purdue, West Virginia and Butler were at the James S. Trent Arena on Sunday night.

David Sloan (2017/Taylor County): Playing alongside Quentin Goodin, Sloan was of the underclassmen who shined in the night games on Sunday, and his court vision was the first thing that was noticeable in his game. He dished out four assists to go along with 10 points in their loss to Wilmington. Sloan currently holds offers from Western Kentucky, Wright State and Samford.
