Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Atlanta Main Event is perennially filled with some of the top talent from Atlanta, as well as the Southeast. This year was no different, as a number of players used the platform to put themselves firmly on the radar. 

In the 15U division, it was Primetime Elite that took home the title; winning 61-55 over the Cherokee Spurs. 

Wing Chris Walls may have only been playing with Primetime for the weekend, but the Wheeler product made his presence known. He did a little bit of everything and was one of the best slashers regardless of age group throughout the weekend. He was far from the only player who made a name for himself though, as a number of other prospects burst onto the scene: 

Jalen Cincore, 2019 PG, Tennessee Truth: Cincore is a natural scorer who has done a good job of developing his point guard skills. He can still put points up on all three levels and was one of the top players in the 15U division. As it stands right now, Cincore could potentially be a division one player. 

Jamal Polite, 2019 PG, Stallions: Polite did a good job of running his team while still remaining an offensive threat.  He has good speed and was able to cause havoc in the open floor. Polite is still undersized (he stands at 5-foot-5) but was very effective. 

Sam Ford, 2019 CF, Team ARG: Ford played the five for ARG, but projects as a potential perimeter player. He knocked down a number of threes throughout the weekend, as well as rebound at a high rate. Ultimately it will come down to how much more he grows. 

Jeffery Hodges, 2019 CG, Georgia Knockouts: A big time shooter and scorer, Hodges has a bright future ahead of him. His natural scoring ability makes him a potential division one player, as he is able to score on all three levels. 

Myson Lowe, 2019 CG, LSA GA Elite Orange: A high IQ combo guard, Lowe did a good job of scoring and distributing. He can get to the lane or knock down shots from deep. Lowe will need to improve his mid-range game, but has a bright future. 

Jahmori Bennett, 2019 SF, Birmingham Blaze: He was one of the more physcially impressive prospects who slashes to the hoop and finishes through contact. Bennett rebounds the ball at a high rate and is improving as a perimeter player. 

Tim Chatman, 2019 SG, Nashville Wildboyz: Chatman is a talented scorer who can put up a number of points in a hurry. He can get to the rim or knock down three point jumpers. The Nashville product also has great speed and can cause havoc in transition. The next step for him will be knocking down mid-range jumpers.

Brandon Tolbert, 2019 PG, SC Focus: Tolbert was one of many speedy point guards who had big weekends. He handles the ball very well and he was able to get into the lane with ease. His ability to create for others makes him an intriguing option, despite being undersized. 

Jadon Moore, 2019 PG, Tri-County Impact: Moore is a speedy point guard who is also a very good defender. His quickness made it very hard for anyone to stay in front of him, allowing him to finish at the rim with ease. The next step in Moore's development will be continuing to refine his play making skills. 

Justin Miles, 2019 PF, Atlanta Select Prime: Miles is an athletic big man that runs from rim to rim very well. He blocks a ton of shots and rebounds the ball very well. He needs to improve as a low post scorer and get stronger as well.

Adrian Boykin, 2019 SG, College Park Rim Rockers: Boykin is a talented scorer who can put points up on a number of different levels. He can get to the rim and knock down three pointers as well. As a wiry prospect, he will need to add strength, as well as score in the mid-range. 

Kevin Hester, 2019 CF, Cherokee Spurs: Hester is a versatile player that can drain mid-range jumpers, bang down low, and even slash into the lane from the perimeter. He's a good athlete that can crash the glass with the best of them. He needs to continue to grow and work on his deep ball to max out his potential. 

Luka Jaksic2019 C, Cherokee Spurs: Jaksic already stands at 6'7 as a freshman and knows how to box out and protect the rim well. If he can grow a few more inches and add in some legit moves in the post he could be a legit D1 college prospect.

Paul Michael Hargrove2019 PF, HCBC: Hargrove has grown to 6'4 and despite his height, he can give other teams trouble in the paint. He's a very smart player and rarely turns the ball over. If he can grow to a legit 6'7 or 6'8, Hargrove has a real shot at playing college basketball at the division one level. 

Jalyn McCreary2019 PF, Primetime Elite: McCreary only stands at 6'2, but his athleticism and tough nosed style of play allows him to play the power forward spot when he's on the floor. His rebounding and low post footwork is what stood out most. If McCreary can hit one more growth spurt and develop a jump shot, he's got a shot at playing in college.
