Birmingham, AL (Future150) -- The 2017 Future150 National Camp again brought in talented prospects from states all over the map. Over the years, we've seen plenty of division one prospects walk through the doors on Saturday morning of camp, and this year was no different. Here's who you should start tracking after their impressive performances over the weekend:

Tyler Stevenson, 2018 SF, New Hope (MS): The most active player in the gym all weekend long was the 6'7" Mississippi prospect. Not only is he a bouncy player who can affect the game on both ends, but he showed some offensive versatility as well. He knocked down enough perimeter jumpers throughout the weekend to keep the defense honest, and he spent a considerable amount of time bending the rims on lobs and put-backs. There's no doubt he's a division one talent. Now it's a matter of where he'll end up.

Austin Harvell, 2020 SG, Clements (AL): If you talked to anyone in the gym last weekend, the consensus was the same: if the 6'5" wing prospect irons out his deficiencies, there's no doubt that he can play at the highest level of college basketball. Right now, he's still relatively unknown, but that's going to change soon. He can score the basketball on all three levels and is a breaktaking athlete, especially in transition. It's going to be fun to track him over the next nine months, when we expect the rest of the basketball world to learn his name.

Collins Joseph, 2018 PG, New Faith Christian Academy (GA): It's an absolute travesty that the 5'10" combo guard doesn't have the scholarship offers to match his talent level. Not only is he a smooth, skilled & confident prospect who can get baskets from all three levels, but the high IQ prospect also possesses freaky bounce with a 46 inch vertical leap. College coaches, wake up! This kid is a scholarship level player, and he'll prove so during his last high school season.

Antonio 'Tank' Jones, 2018 SG, Jackson Olin (AL): The biggest surprise of the camp was the 6'4" lengthy wing prospect, who plays with a chip on his shoulder at all times. He's a fiery competitor who can score from anywhere on the floor. He was the MVP for his team all weekend long, leading them to the championship on Sunday afternoon. He continued his ascension by showing out in the camp all-star game as well. College coaches, do yourselves a favor and head to Jackson Olin High School this winter.

Grant Jones, 2020 PF, Brewer (TX): Now measuring in at 6'9", the talented Texan continues to show a growing game. Having just turned 16 years old just a few weeks ago, it's a great indicator of just how much more growth he has left in his game. He is an excellent stretch-four man option who showed a sweet shooting stroke all weekend long. He also rebounded well around the rim and defended well for his team. Keep an eye on the future division one player.

Willie Jones, 2018 SG, Cheyenne Central (WY): Possessing a great frame at 6'4", it's easy to like him when you see him walking into the gym. Once you see him play, you begin to love his game as well. He's a walking bucket, who has excellent scoring skills and footwork on the floor. When he's dialed in, he can get you scores from anywhere on the floor. As he sculpts his frame, he's going to prove that he's a division one level player. Just wait and see.

Lee Langstaff II, 2020 PG, Carolina Day School (NC): As our camp season comes to a close, one thing was made clear by the 6'1" point guard: he's a future division one player. Not only does he already have good size and skills for his age, but he has some serious explosiveness to his game, which he showed on above-the-rim plays several times over the weekend. Once he hones his jumper, his game will go to another level.

Kalil Thomas, 2019 SG, Holy Cross (LA): Already with great size for the wing at 6'4", the smooth wing showed off his scoring skills at camp. He can play above the rim, especially in transition, but he's most valuable as a scorer in the half-court setting. For a wing prospect, he also rebounds the ball well and values his contributions on defense as well. 

Steven Henderson, 2018 SF, Allen Academy (TX): The 6'6" wing first stood out at our Future150 Houston Camp in August. He backed up that performance at National Camp, showing an advanced scoring arsenal to go along with his great frame. A three-level scorer with ability on the defensive end, he should really blossom at the college level once he gets acclimated. 

Dallas Howell, 2020 SF, Enterprise (AL): We really like what the future holds for the 6'5" forward prospect, who played with an incredible motor at both our Southeast Regional Camp as well as our National All-American Camp. The lefty is a plus athlete who rebounds extremely well from the wing. He also shows the ability to score from all three levels. While his defense needs work, as well as his lateral speed, there's a lot to like with his combination of size and skills early on.

Jacoby Brown, 2020 PG, Shadow Creek (TX): The 6'2" point guard prospect first caught our eyes early this AAU season while playing two ages up in the 17U division at our Main Event Houston Tournament. Well, after earning all-star status at our 'The Summit' Camp and now at Future150 National All-American Camp, it's safe to say that it's been an awesome year for him. He's at his best in penetration situations, always looking to get to the rim for easy scores or dump-off opportunities for his teammates. 

Benni Gambino, 2019 G, Fairhope (AL): One of the biggest surprises of the camp, the 5'9" guard not only can direct the offense, but his best asset is his ability to score. He's a deadly shooter from the outside and he also showed the ability to score off the bounce with defenders trying to put the clamps on him. On defense, he's a passionate prospect who will be a fine college player, wherever he lands. 

Chris Lengyel, 2021 G, Southside (AL): One of the youngest prospects at the camp, the 6'1" combo guard was also one of the most productive. He's a fearless offensive player capable of scoring from all three levels. He has added value as a facilitator, which he showed a lot more of while playing with much older peers at the camp. All in all, it was a great experience for the Alabama prospect, and his future is very bright.

Cameron Smith, 2018 SF, Okolona (MS): Sporting solid footwork with a sturdy 6'6" frame, the Mississippi prospect caused defenses fits all weekend. He's a matchup problem who is highly skilled on offense and can get hot from the perimeter as well, making him a tough matchup. On the defensive end, he has good instincts, and once he's back to being 100% in shape following injury, he's going to have an excellent college career.

Diego Gonzalez, 2019 G, Midway (TX): The catalyst for his team on the way to the championship game, the 6'2" combo guard did a little of everything for his squad. He was a highly effective two-way player who is highly impressive in terms of going out and getting a basket. He also shows adequate ability to handle the basketball for stretches, and is a plus defender as well. Having recently moved to Texas from Puerto Rico, expect him to have a hugh high school season.

Tariq Eubanks, 2021 PG, Tapestry School (NY): One of the youngest prospects in the camp, the 5'9" floor general was also one of the fiercest competitors as well. He never takes a play off, and takes pride of the defensive end. On offense, he did a great job of directing his team, leading them to a championship victory on Sunday afternoon. He also showed takeover ability as well, scoring clutch baskets time and time again in tight contests.

Tommy Murr, 2020 SG, Lindsay Lane Christian (AL): The best shooter in the gym over the weekend was the 5'10" Alabama prospect. Not only was he crowned champion of the 3-point contest, but he showed throughout Saturday and Sunday his ability to be the most consistent shooter in attendance. Going forward, look for him to become one of the elite shooters in the state. It was a great weekend for him overall.

Jordan Sledge, 2020 PG, Ouchita Parish (LA): A jet in the open floor, the 5'7" point guard prospect did a ton of damage in transition at National Camp. He loves to get out in space and showed excellent ability to finish around the rim. He also had an impressive weekend shooting the basketball, making him even tougher to stop when he got going. 

Donte Mitchell, 2019 PG, Archbishop Rummel (LA): One of the best surprises at camp, the 5'10" guard prospect has a sweet shooting stroke, and he's able to get loose for buckets on both the mid-range and 3-point levels. He is also capable of directing the offense as a facilitator when he needs to, making him a valuable combo guard. At this moment, he has to be considered a serious sleeper in Louisiana, and should start racking up scholarship offers soon.

Brandon Ellington, 2019 SG, Community School Of Davidson (NC): The 6'2" wing prospect is more that just a one trick pony. Sure, he can shoot the basketball, and that's certainly his best asset on the floor, but there's much more to his game. He's a serious competitor who loves to defend. He crashes the glass on both ends of the floor, and showed ability to create on penetration opportunities as well. He showed a diversified game at National Camp.

Terry Clardy Jr., 2019 SG, Conway (AR): The definition of a power wing, the 6'3" shooting guard has the ability to be a lockdown defender if/when he fully commits to the idea. On offense, he's a talented player who can score the ball on all three levels. His long arms also allow him to play above the rim regularly, showing off added athleticism since we last viewed him. Overall, an excellent weekend for him. 

Evan Palmquist, 2019 G, Magnolia (TX): The 6'3" combo guard continues to improve his overall game. He's always been a high IQ talent with natural scoring skills, but now he's showing that there's more to his game. He's becoming more bouncy in the open floor and is also a very talented playmaker who made several very nice passes for assists over the weekend. He continues to trend up with our staff.

Indrek Sunelik, 2019 SG, Leeds (AL): One of the most skilled prospects at camp, the native of Estonia has so much to like going forward. He's still growing into his 6'6" frame and athleticism, and has excellent footwork and scoring skills in his arsenal to date. He's a nice three-level scorer who's only going to get better as he grows and develops. Look out for him in the state of Alabama, as he arrived this school year.

Jaylin Logan, 2018 PG, Neville (LA): An excellent playmaker with court vision and an instinctual game, the 6'2" Louisiana native racked up assists all weekend long as a set-up man. He has solid size for the position and showed that he can also score when necessary. However, his bread & butter is his ability to get others involved in the flow of the game, making him very valuable going forward. 

Chris King, 2018 SG, Hazel Green (AL): A green-light shooter at 6'1", the Alabama wing has a tendency to get hot in a hurry on the offensive end. He's a streaky shooter who can rack up points in a hurry, making him a tough cover on the offensive end. He's also a smart defensive player who actively gets into passing lanes and creates turnovers for his team.
