Cane Ridge, TN (Future150) -- For the first time in our history, Future150 held an elite camp for freshman and sophomore prospects nationally. The Summit Camp brought in some of the best young prospects from across the country, and some of the absolute best were selected on Sunday afternoon to participate in the Top 40 All-Star Game. Here are the standouts from the game:

Ross Plunkett, 2016 CG, Creek Wood (TN): The combo guard was one of the stars of the Top 40 game due to his perimeter shooting. He knocked down several three's in the game and was one of the top shooters in the entire camp. The Tennessee Panthers guard can handle the ball adequately and is a sleeper in the eastern side of the state going forward.

Paxton Bergdoll, 2016 SF, Concordia Lutheran (IN): A versatile prospect at 6-foot-7, the Indiana forward was one of the more skilled players we encountered last weekend. He is able to play on both the low block and the perimeter, making him a matchup problem for the defense. He also showed an ability to play above the rim, making him an even more valuable prospect. 

Jake West, 2016 PF, Hendersonville (TN): An impressive power forward prospect, West has a lot of long term potential. Already standing 6-foot-7, he is an athletic and mobile big man. He is active on the glass, runs the floor well, and can finish around the rim. What we liked most about him though, is that he is a very skilled low post passer.

Nosa Iyagbaye, 2017 PF, Parkview Christian (NE): The Omaha Elite big man could be set to explode in the state over the next year. Standing 6-foot-7 with a bevy of low post skills already, Iyagbaye is on the cusp of becoming a very good prospect. He finishes around the rim and is effective on the defensive end. He also has good footwork in the post.

Trey Brown, 2016 G, Academy of Richmond County (GA): An effective combo guard, the 5-foot-11 Georgia native continues to get better. He has very good upper-body strength and good burst when attacking the basket. Once he solidifies his perimeter jump shot, he will become a very well-rounded prospect.

Josh Jackmon, 2017 PG, Miller Grove (GA): The 5-foot-11 lead guard has an excellent basketball IQ, and he showed that last weekend. He is very good when creating off-the-dribble and consistently finds open teammates on both the perimeter and the low block. He is also a very aggressive on-ball defender. Once his jump shot improves, there will be very little a defender can do to stop him.

James Dunlap, 2016 PG, Butler (KY): Although only 5-foot-9, don't let Dunlap's height fool you; he can play. A born scorer, he knows how to get baskets, whether they are on the perimeter or finishing on aggressive drives to the rim. He also displayed excellent court vision and showed unselfishness on the offensive end. 

Marquis Eaton, 2017 PG, Central (AR): A sleeper in the state of Arkansas is the 6-foot-2 point guard. Already possessing advanced ball skills, Eaton impressed us with other aspects of his game at camp. He was knocking down perimeter jump shots consistently and played within himself, constantly finding open teammates by making the extra pass. Very impressive weekend for him.

Romero Hill, 2016 SG, Hamilton (TN): The 6-foot-3 Memphis product won't wow you with his game like most guards from Bluff City, and that's okay. His game is built on consistency. He is a very good perimeter shooter and facilitator. He doensn't get rattled easily on the floor and is a solid on-ball defender. Good weekend for the Hamilton High School (TN) standout.

Tyler Thornton, 2017 PF, South Atlanta (GA): Thornton looks to be putting his game together nicely since last seeing him at our Future150 Main Event Atlanta. The lefty big man is great around the rim, especially from the left side. He showed to be effective in pick-and-roll situations, and he has improved his mid-range shot.

Connor Wilson, 2017 PG, Ohio County (KY): Wilson’s game isn’t going to blow anyone away, but his efficiency and high IQ is what is impressive. The 5-foot-10 guard handled the ball well all weekend and consistently hit shots from both guard positions. He understands how to get others involved and be a true point guard for his team.

Jordan Usher, 2017 CG, Sequoyah (GA): Usher has the potential to be a special player in a few years. Currently, the 6-foot-5 combo guard is comfortable attacking the rim and using his size and strength to get easy buckets. His shot is still coming along, but he can hit some shots from the outside as well. He is always looking to attack the rim and score. If all pans out, he will be a high-major guard in a few years.

Justin Longstreet, 2016 SG, Appalachee (GA): One of the most unselfish players from this weekend was Longstreet. The 6-foot-1 shooting guard put on a passing clinic the entire weekend with his vision and passing ability. He is very tight and fundamental with his game, making it tough for defenders to bother him. He also shoots the ball well from behind the three-point line.

Reece Spencer, 2017 SG, Porter (TX): It took Spencer a little while to get going during camp, but when he got his shot going, he was hard to stop. The 6-foot-1 shooting guard is a dangerous shooter, as he proved on Sunday with five straight three-pointers during game-play. He plays very smart and picks his spots and doesn’t force his shots. He also is very coachable and plays hard at all times.

Darryl Brown, 2016 PG, Germantown (TN): The sophomore point guard is a really fun kid to watch with the basketball in his hands. He knows how to make plays off-the-dribble using his quickness and creativity. While he shows the ability to make jump shots from the perimeter, his bread and butter is penetrating and creating for himself and others.

Greg Couson, 2017 PF, Wilkinson County (GA): Couson has been known to be hard to handle on the boards, and he proved that to the respective campers this weekend. The 6-foot-5 big man is very active around the goal, where he gets the majority of his points. He has a knack for finding the ball with his rebounding ability and high motor. He isn’t the most skilled, but his heart and motor make him a coach’s dream. Once his offensive game comes around, he will be scary. 

Kyrenne Wright, 2017 PF, Tucker (GA): The 6-foot-4 forward proved to be a consistent finisher around the rim all weekend long. He is not only active on offense, but on the defensive end as well. He rebounds well on both ends and runs the floor very well. Has the tools to develop into a very good player.

Marquaevious Williams, 2017 SG, Northside (GA): The 6-foot-3 wing is an absolutely explosive athlete. He loves to play above the rim, something he did all weekend long at camp. He is also a capable slasher who is crafty when finishing around the basket. Right now, his jump shot is his biggest weakness, and if he improves that aspect of his game, he will be a bonafide mid-major prospect.

Aguek Arop, 2017 SF, Omaha South (NE): The most impressive perimeter rebounder at the camp was the 6-foot-4 wing. Blessed with extremely long arms and very good athleticism, he already possesses the tools to become a high level prospect in Nebraska and the Midwest. Once he tightens up his jumper and his ball skills, he will be a very hard prospect to stop.

Dathan Boyd2017 PG, Atlanta Express (GA): Boyd turned in a solid weekend, showcasing his ability to create for others off the dribble as well as put up points in bunches. He has a high basketball IQ and knows when to look for his own shot and when to find the open man. He is one of the more consistent freshmen we have seen this year and should turn in a solid career. 

Dantez Walton2016 SF, Lima Central Catholic (OH):  Walton is an athletic wing prospect who saved his best for Sunday. He got to the rim and was a more than active rebounder. He has good length and a decent shooting stroke. The next step for Walton will be creating his own shot off the dribble. Once he does that, look out. 

Jordan Giles2016 SG, Bama Kings (AL): Giles is a natural scorer who proved he can score on all three levels this past weekend. He was tough to stop in transition and he used his speed well when going to the rim. He has a chance to be a really good scorer for someone down the line. 

Ben Moss2016 PG, Apollo (KY): Moss is a lightning quick guard that has great range on his jumper. He absolutely torched the nets in the Top 40 All-Star Game, knocking down five threes. Despite his size, he is an incredibly efficient player who will be highly sought after.
