Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The atmosphere was electric at McEachern High School on Friday night for the kickoff of the Future150 Main Event Atlanta, and there was a plethora of prospects who were hungry for exposure...

Jordan Renfro, 2015 PG, South Atlanta Knights:

Renthro was as an exciting point guard as we saw this weekend. He showed off great vision in transition and the half-court with tons of great passes, including some that threaded the needle through small openings. However, some of those passes lead to turnovers, too. One of Renthro’s biggest strengths is his quickness and speed. He changed speeds very well to keep the defense honest.

Robert Baker2016 SF, Georgia Fury:

The 6'7" forward prospect oozes potential. His size 17 feet project him to continue growing, and what is most scary is that he has both post and perimeter skills for such a big, young prospect. He rebounded the ball extremely well this weekend. He also got out in transition and scored on the break, finishing with regularity around the basket. The future is very bright for Robert.

Drew Romich, 2015 C, Atlanta Select Classic:

Romich was one of the more skilled post players that produced all weekend. At 6-foot-8, he showcased a beautiful mid-range shot from the elbow, as well as great decision making from the high post, whether it was passes or shots. Romich passed the ball exceptionally well for a big man at his position and that will help him in the future when college coaches come calling. He also played hard at all times.

Jalen Mitchell, 2015 SF, Georgia Stars:

The 6'4" forward from Collins Hill High School (GA) has a great body for the next level. He is at his best when he is attacking the rim and finishing with contact. He rebounds well from the wing, and gets after it on the defensive end. He also has decent ball skills and looks to get his teammates involved in the flow of the game. 

Isaiah Greer, 2014 SG, South Atlanta Knights:

Shooting is somewhat of a lost art nowadays, but Greer gets it. He understands shooting and how important it is. The southpaw hit shot after shot over the weekend, whether it was a three or in the lane. He shot the ball better off the catch (especially in transition), but he showed signs of shooting it off the dribble. Greer was crafty enough with his handles to get himself some shots, but he was much more successful off the catch. North Florida and Georgia Southern, among other schools, are already showing interest in him.

Paul Jackson2014 PG, ASA:

The 6'1" point guard had it firing on all cylinders Friday night. He can score the basketball effortlessly,whether he is taking the ball hard to the basket, or dropping jump shots from all over the court. He is also a lead guard who gets his teammates involved. He isn't shy about racking up assists in order to keep his teammates happy on the floor. He is one of the best point guards in the state of Georgia, and is being recruited by several big name programs.

D'Marcus Simonds, 2016 SG, Heat Check:

The 6'4" wing proved to be one of the premiere shooting guards in the freshman class in the state of Georgia this past weekend. He scores the basketball well from mid-range as well as long range, with a picture-perfect jump shot. He handles the ball well, and doesn't try to do too much on the floor. He is a solid rebounder on both ends, and he does a good job of starting the break after he rebounds.

Herman Williams2016 SG, Georgia Renegades:

The 6'2" wing is an electric athlete who loves to play above the rim. He is an excellent scorer who loves to get to the basket and finish with contact. He also can shoot the ball and can hit shots consistently at the mid-range level. As it stands, he is one of the most underrated prospects in the state of Florida, but soon the secret will be out.
