North Augusta, SC (Future150) -- Peach Jam is annually one of the top, if not the top, AAU tournament in the country. This year's edition is no different. A number of big name players have helped to lead their teams to bracket play, while a few others have fallen short while still turning in tremendous performances. 

Deandre Ayton, 2017 PF, California Supreme: Ayton made his pitch for number one player in the class and if his play from this week is any indicator, he will be successful. The big man has such a versatile offensive arsenal that he is nearly impossible to guard.

Mitchell Robinson, 2017 C, Pro Skills: Robinson is the best shot blocker in the country in his class, and will be an immediate impact player when he heads to WKU. Scoring 20 points while grabbing six boards and blocking seven shots before fouling out, Robinson is quietly making a case for a move towards top ten status with his play this week.

Jared Jones, 2019 PF, Southern Stampede: Another shot-blocker, Jones made his presence felt on both ends of the floor. His ability to face up and attack makes him an intriguing option for high-major programs. The Future150 alum runs the floor like a deer and has some Daniel Giddens in him. He is certainly one to track.

Anthony Gaines, 2017 SF, Albany City Rocks: Perhaps no one player is more important to his AAU team than Anthony Gaines is to the City Rocks. The wing seemingly willed his team to a triple OT win over Pro Skills today, while putting up 18 and grabbing 16 boards. The Future150 Alum has really improved and could see the high-major offers roll in soon after this live period ends. 

Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree2017 PF, Team Final: It seems like this Villanova commit gets better every time he steps on the court, and Peach Jam has been no exception thus far. The lanky, 6'9" post is rapidly adding strength and had no problems going right at 2017 #1 Wendell Carter down low to the tune of 18 points and 12 rebounds in a close loss. There's not much DCR can't do at this point, but if he puts it all together, he could end up being a steal for the national champs.

Markquis Nowell2018 PG, NJ Playaz: In another triple OT thriller, Nowell dropped 34 points and a slew of clutch baskets to pull out a win over E1T1. The shifty floor general got into the lane at will and was able to finish effectively despite his 5'8" frame. His recruitment is lukewarm right now due to his size, but "Mr. New York City" looked every bit the part of a high-major guard.

Trae Young, 2017 PG, MoKan Elite: Ranked #9 in 2017, this Future150 alum lived up to his top billing, erupting for 30+ points in both of his games. He displayed his well-rounded game, using six 3s to finish with 32 points in the afternoon set, then knifing into the lane for crafty finishes en route to 35 points in the nightcap, without hitting a single trey. The nation's best schools are all after him at this point, but it looks like it could be a Kansas vs. Oklahoma battle to the end for the Norman, Oklahoma native.
