Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Future150 Main Event got underway Friday night with the strong play of several local teams and players. Here is who stood out...

Several players took it upon themselves to get noticed by the Future150 staff on Friday night. A smorgasboard of athletes ranging from ages 13-17 stole the show on the opening night of the tournament. Here is who we are raving about thus far...

C.J. Johnson-2014 SG/SF, Georgia Ballers: The Fayette County High School player absolutely dominated his game Friday night with an arsenal of long-range bombs and powerful finishes in transition.

Dwayne Elliott-2014 SG, Georgia Ballers: Another Fayette County High Schooler, Elliott showed his ability to be a knock-down shooter and has a picture-perfect stroke and good elevation on his shot. He is also an exceptional leaper.

Josh Linder-2017 CP3 All Stars A raw talent at 6'4", the young power forward impressed with his motor by constantly boxing out and diving for loose balls on the floor. He also showed solid shot blocking ability. He is definitely a high-upside talent.

Kendrick Summerour- 2017 CP3 All-Stars: The 5'8" point guard had his ball handling skills on full display Friday night. The southpaw also was successful using his quick first step to penetrate into the lane with punishing drives to the hoop.

Wendell Carter Jr.- 2017 Rockafellas-The 6'5" power forward/center absolutely dominated in his game against the CP3-All Stars, scoring at will in the paint. Another high-upside big man whose best playing days are ahead of him.

Victor Enoh-2017-Rockafellas the 6'6" center is the other half of the twin-towers for the Rockafellas team. Another high-upside player who showed solid post moves as well as superb rebounding skills on Friday night.

Tyrone Sam-2014 SG, NESE Warriors: Sam single-handedly kept his squad in the game on Friday night. With some of his teammates not having the games that they were expected, the 6-foot-2 wing always seemed to make the right play in every position. He thrived in transition, whether he was finishing at the basket or dishing to teammates.

Clarence Williams-2013 SF, Atlanta Xpress:This long athlete may have been the most impressive looking prospect from Day 1 at the Main Event. He threw down dunk after dunk and got to the basket, but Williams also displayed a nice three-point shot by knocking down 3 treys.

Devin Mitchell-2014 SG, Georgia Stars: Mitchell showed the ability to properly run a team in a big win Friday evening. The guard paced his Stars squad on the court, keeping control of the game tempo. Mitchell's shot wasn't falling, but one can tell he has the ability to hit shots from the perimeter. Right now, his ball-handling could be his biggest attribute.

Aaron Augustin-2016 PG, CP3 All-Stars: Despite being under-the-weather, Augustin helped fuel his team to a victory over the Georgia Stars. Augustin possesses great point guard instincts, and he could be one of the next great point guards from Georgia. He also rebounds very well for size and owns a great basketball IQ.

Marquis Lanier-2013 SF, Atlanta Select: Similar to a post player playing as a guard, he has the abiltiy to do many things that typical guards do not. Laniere spent a lot of time on the offensive boards getting trash buckets to help out his team.

Jordan Harris- 2016 SG, Georgia Renegades: This smooth lefty is a combo guard that has the ability to do many great things as a guard. With his length, he has the ability to post-up smaller guards, as he cited that as something he wanted to work on. According to his coach Juwan Hopkins, Harris needs to work on his on-ball defense to be a better player.

Raquan Wilkins-2016 PF, Atlanta South Knights: Wilkins has a similar physique to Celtics' standout Kevin Garnett, and he does many of the same things, too. HIs long arms and body allow him to rebound extremely well.

Jelani Reid, Jr.-2016 PG,Atlanta South Knight: Reid wasone of very imressive point guards to play on Friday night. He has the ability to run the show, as well as score if and when he needs to do so.
