Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Future150 Southeast Camp brought out a slew of talented prospects in the classes of 2018-2022 from several states in the region. Led by nationally ranked guard prospect Drue Drinnon, the all-star list was littered with several future college players. Check out who impressed us most over the weekend.

(1.) Drue Drinnon, 2018 G, University School (FL): The 6'1" scoring guard is set for a big senior season at University School (FL), teaming with fellow nationally ranked prospects in Vernon Carey, Scottie Barnes & Trey Doomes. It should be his team this year, as he's looking to really put a stamp on his outstanding high school career. His quickness, shooting ability & ability to run a team make him the type of guard all high-major schools covet. Stay tuned this winter for a huge senior campaign.

(2.) Collins Joseph, 2018 G, New Faith Christian Academy (GA): The 5'10" guard was the breakout performer of the camp. At 5'10", he's a smooth scorer who can get it done from beyond the perimeter or from mid-range. He has solid ball skills and shows ability to run the point guard position or slide over and play on the wing, due to his scoring skills. He also posted an eye-popping 46 inch maximum vertical leap at camp, making him an elite athlete as well.

(3.) Blake Murphy, 2018 SG, Providence (IN): Murphy produced quietly all weekend long. He has great size and length for a two-guard, and showed great athleticism. He was very tough to stop in transition, and any time he drove to the rim it was a guaranteed bucket or drawn foul. His size matched with his offensive abiltiies and athleticism could easily allow him to contribute at a low-major program in the future.

(4.) Chris King, 2018 G, Hazel Green (AL): The 6'1" guard prospect was one of the most consistent scorers on the perimeter in Atlanta. He's a high volume bucket-getter who can do it on all three levels. He's able to get baskets off the dribble, as well as in catch & shoot situations. He also shows some sneaky athleticism, as he had the camp buzzing with an impressive alley-oop on the opending day of camp.

(5.) Chris Lengyel, 2021 G, Southside (AL): Keep an eye out for the skilled 6'1" combination guard, who is built to score the basketball. He has some nice ball skills along with some impressive slashing skills. This past season, he played on a powerful Atlanta Celtics 14U squad as a secondary option, but expect him to really make a name for himself in the state of Alabama as a freshman this year. He's already proven his division one projection through our multiple viewings of him this calendar year.

(6.) Camrone Cherry, 2020 SG, Northeast (GA): It was an excellent weekend performance for the nearly 6'2" wing prospect. The athletic lefty is an explosive athlete who can easily play above the rim. He also has an impressive 6'8" wingpsan, which helps him on both ends of the floor. He has all the tools to become a standout defensive player down the road. Now it's just a matter of locking in, and developing his ball skills & periemeter shooting.

(7.) Abraham Onikoyi, 2018 SF, Walton (GA): An explosive athlete who played above the rim all weekend long, the 6'4" wing was a problem in transition and when slashing to the rim. He has an impressive wingspan at 6'7", which also helped him on both ends of the floor. While his jump shot needs a lot of work, there's a lot to like about his game and how he can develop over the next few years.

(8.) Jacobi Wright, 2021 G, York Prep (SC): One of the most talented slashers that we've encountered this camp season has been the 6-foot guard. He's very adept at getting to the rim, whether it be in the half-court setting or in transition. He loves to get into passing lanes on the defensive end as well, making him a two-way threat at all times. As his jump shot develops, he'll become a very hard player to stop on offense.

(9.) Brooks Kahlert, 2021 G, Woodward Academy (GA): We continue to see the evolution of the talented guard, who has now sprouted to 5'10". The shifty ball-handler has excellent court vision and makes some seriously impressive passes with the ball in his hands. He's a knockdown shooter who can't be left open. Once he commits on the defensive end, he's going to really take his game to another level.

(10.) Domonik Henderson, 2022 SG, Robert Cross Middle (GA): The 6'2" wing has as much upside as any camper that we evaluated over the weekend. Only 13 years old with a 6'5" wingspan and size 15 shoes, the smooth slasher has all the tools and measurables to become an absolute star over the coming years. While he wasn't overly productive at camp, he had his moments, and showed that the best is yet to come for the Albany, Georgia prospect.

(11.) Ryan Maina, 2019 PG, Christian Educational Consortium (KY): One of the surprises of the camp was the 5'11" Louisville prospect. A strong slasher and defender, he was active all weekend with his tenacity on both ends of the floor. He measured well athletically as well, making him an interesting prospect to track. Having flown under the radar due to him being home-schooled, look for a big AAU season coming up.

(12.) William Kelley, 2018 SF, Barker (AL): Kelley was an absolute stud during 5-on-5 and 4-on-4 play. Using his length to block shots, and knock down tough shots in transition were just some of the few impressive things he did. He doesn't have the best shot mechanics, but it seems to go in more times than not. As a senior what you see is what you get with Kelley, and he should definitely be labeled as a mid-level DII recruit.

(13.) Jarden Maze, 2020 SG, Washington County (GA): An impressive scorer at 6'0", the wiry combination guard also showed excellent body control and finishing ability around the rim. He knows how to take contact and can finish with either hand with consistency. He also got hot from the perimeter for stretches as well, making him a nice three-level scorer.

(14.) Dallas Howell, 2020 SF, Enterprise (AL): Be on the lookout in the state of Alabama for the 6'5" wing prospect. He showed that he can knock down shots with regularity from beyond the arc, and when crowded, did a nice job of slashing to the rim for open scores. Not only does he have some nice skills in his arsenal, but he has an excellent frame as well.

(15.) Raheem Swain, 2021 G, Stephenson (GA): One of the best long distance scorers at the camp was the 5'10" guard prospect. While he isn't very assertive at this point in his development, he definitely has an understanding of when to put his foot on the gas on the offensive end. He's also fairly young for his grade, making him a very appealing prospect in the Atlanta metropolitan region. Don't be surprised to see a big developmental year from him.

(16.) Braxton Peterson, 2018 PF, Harrison (GA): Measuring in at 6'7" and close to 215 pounds, it's clear he has very good size that projects to the next level. He also has solid athleticism as well, which helped him play above the rim when given the opportunity in Atlanta. Now it's all about continued development for the big man, including his low post moves & strength with the ball in his hands. However, there is a lot to like about his game.

(17.) Jerome Beazer IV, 2018 SF, Hapeville Charter (GA): Now a senior, Beazer has grown a few more inches and now stands nearly 6'5". Playing as a wing guard, he's at his best when attacking the rim and finishing above the defense. He always has had flashes of dominance on the wing. If he can learn to keep his motor running at all times on the floor he could work his way into low-major status. For now Beazer stands as a high-level DII guy based off upside alone.

(18.) Cameron Wilson, 2019 PG, Rockdale County (GA): Wilson had a sluggish start during 5-on-5 play on the first day of camp, after some impressive work during drills. On Sunday he made sure he came to play during 4-on-4 play. He is a lightning-quick guard with solid handling abiltiies and a smooth jumper from deep. He can score from all three levels, and always makes those playing around him better.

(19.) Kenneth Evans, 2018 SG, Mountain View (GA): Evans had a fantastic weekend scoring the ball due to his great slashing and penetration abilties. He also showed the ability to knock it down from deep with consistency as well. At 6'2" he killed on the glass and was a great on-ball defender. No doubt that he has the talent to continue playing somewhere beyond high school.

(20.) Kevin Brown, 2020 SG, Paulding County (GA): One of the best athletes at camp regardless of age or position, Brown has a great mix of speed, agility, and leaping abilties that give him the look of a great rim-running wing guard down the road. As his offensive skill set continues to develop, Brown certainly has a chance to be a low-major prospect based off his upside and intangibles.

(21.) Cole McGrath, 2019 SG, Booneville (MS): When it comes to the most cerebral prospects at camp, the 6-foot combo guard has to be in the conversation. He plays with a high basketball IQ on the floor and is also a crafty scorer around the rim. He not only could knock down shots from deep, but was also impressive when finishing around the rim in traffic. 

(22.) Noah Taylor, 2019 SG, Hendersonville (TN): The talented combo guard showed off an impressive shooting stroke at camp. He knows how to run a team and has no trouble directing the offense and getting his teammates open looks. However, he's at his best as a shooter, whether he's doing it off the dribble or when in catch & shoot situations.

(23.) Jayce Harrison, 2021 PG, Fellowship Christian (GA): Don't be fooled by his height. He was one of the best playmakers at camp, thanks to his high IQ on the floor, as well as his ability to get into the lane for scoring opportunities. He was especially impressive using his speed in the open floor in transition, and he had no issues locking up on the defensive end. 

(24.) Micah Clark, 2019 SG, Leeds (AL): Clark is a smooth scorer from mid-range and rebounds well for a guard. At nearly 6'1" he has solid size, and has a good wingspan of 6'4" that he uses to disrupt the passing lanes and gather steals for easy buckets in transition. As a 2019, Clark looks like a solid DII recuit.

(25.) Anthony Jackson Jr., 2019 PG, Hernando (MS): Jackson had a very impressive weekend. He is an excellent floor general with great vision and feel for the game. His ball-handling and speed in the open floor allowed him to create plenty of shots for himself and his teammates. Jackson should excel at the DII/NAIA level in college.

(26.) Christopher Kemp, 2020 PG, Leeds (AL): Kemp was scoring the ball from all three levels and lighting opposing defenses up from beyond the arc. His crafty scoring abilities and great speed in the open floor made him one of the most productive guards during 5-on-5 play. He doesn't have the best size or strength for a guard his age, but he makes plays happen nonetheless.
