New Haven, CT (Future150) -- The National Prep Showcase has made it's case as one of the best pre-Thanksgiving showcases nationally over the past few years, and this year's addition didn't dissapoint. A few new name popped up on the radar with big performaces, but for the most part, this weekend saw a number of big names turn in fantastic performances:

Matthew Moyer, 2016 CF, South Kent (CT): Moyer has embraced his role with South Kent, and looks more like a power forward than small forward with his team. That being said, his game hasn't changed all that much. Moyer attacked out of the high post and on the block all weekend, showing the kind of aggressiveness that Jim Boeheim loves. The future Syracuse forward ran hard all weekend and made plays all over the floor. Through the two games, he averaged 24 points and 6.5 rebounds; not a bad outing from the Furture150 Alum. 

Braxton Beverly, 2016 PG, Hargrave Military Academy (VA): The Kentucky native has had as strong of a start to his senior year as any player in the country. He led his team to wins over South Kent and Northfield Mount Herman (NH) while averaging 16.5 points, 3.5 assists, and 7 rebounds a contest.  The Future150 Alum lived up to his ranking at #140 and proved to the rest of the country how much of a steal he is for Miami (OH). Expect him to have the ball in his hands a ton during his freshman season. 

Donte Fitzpatrick, 2016 SG, Elev8 Prep (FL): Ole Miss has another good one coming in next season in Fitzpatrick. The athletic wing bounced back for 15 points and 7 rebounds after a poor performace in his first game of the weekend. At 6-foot-5, there were times that he played on the ball as well, perhaps affording the Rebels some extra versatility next season. Regardless, the Future150 Alum showed that he will be ready for SEC play next season. 

Taurean Thompson, 2016 PF, Brewster Academy (NH): Arguably one of the best big men still available in the 2016 class, Thompson had a very nice weekend. He averaged  an impressive 15.5 points, 7.5 boards, and 2.5 blocks over the weekend. Thompson will need to get stronger in order to deal with contact better, but he showed a ton of improvement, leading us to belive that the best is yet to come. 

Andrew Platek, 2017 SG, Northfield Mount Hermon (NH): Platek is making his case to be considered one of the best shooters in the northeast, if not the country. The sharp-shooter knocked down 6 of 10 three point attempts en route to averaging 11 points per contest. He has also improved quite a bit off the dribble and could be one of the breakout performers of 2016. 

Bruce Brown, 2016 CG, Vermont Academy (VT): The Future Miami Hurricane looked like he was playing with the weight of the world lifted off his shoulders in his one game. Scoring 29 while pulling down 9 boards is impressive enough, throw in 4 assists and it's easy to see why we're so high on him. Brown also has the tools to be an elite defender down the road. Miami took the country by storm so far this season, and may do the same next year with a talented producer like Brown heading their way. 

Omari Spellman, 2016 PF, St. Thomas More (CT): Villanova fans are going to absolutely love Spellman. Not only is he a behemoth for Wildcat standards, standing at 6-10 and weighing 230 pounds, but he's skilled as well.  Spellman knocked down 4 three pointers on 6 attempts, but did a majority of his work in the low post. His versatiltiy as a scorer will give the WIldcats a dimension they've been missing for a couple of years now. As a whole he averaged 22 points and 7.5 rebounds on the weekend. 

Elijah Campbell, 2016 CG, Bridgton (MA): The Future150 Alum was efficient in his time on the floor. Shooting 59% on the weekend, Campbell averaged 11.5 points and helped to spark an upset of IMG Academy. While low-majors have been showing interest, no one has pulled the trigger just yet. Look for him to pick up his first offer sooner rather than later.
