Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- On the second day of the Philly JamFest, it was a group of New England area players that stole the show. Still, there was plenty of talent from other areas of the country in the gym as well. Here are some of the players that showed out on day 2:

John Crosby - 2014 PG, Team Melo:  The 6-foot-3 point guard reminded us why we loved him in the first place a few months ago. He has great size for his position, and rarely makes a bad decision. Crosby dropped 22 in the first half alone during a hard-fought loss to a scrappy Minnesota Fury squad. He is a high-major point guard with his skill set, and colleges would be smart to jump on him now.

CJ Keyser - 2015 SF, Mid-Atlantic Select: Keyers has used his time at the Philly Jamfest as a bit of a coming out party. The athletic wing showed his ability to attack the basket on Saturday night. While he didn’t shoot the ball from deep, Keyser showed an uncanny ability to put the ball on the floor and make plays. In addition, he can defend the three perimeter positions. Look for him to continue to get looks as the AAU season continues.

Steffen Davis - 2014 PG, Mid-Atlantic Select: Davis is a scoring point guard who can also set his teammates up and create off the dribble. He has a solid stroke from deep and showed that off on Saturday night. Right now he looks like a solid mid-major option and will have to opportunity to improve his stock throughout the spring and summer.

Mustapha Heron - 2016 SG, ECE Mass: One of the most heralded prospects to play in the NEPSAC, Heron did not disappoint. His ability to score the ball makes him an elite prospect, and at 6-foot-5 he has great size for his position. Arguably Heron’s biggest weapon is his jump shot, which is incredibly pure.Mustapha will be making a big impression in our updated rankings this spring.

Goodluck Okonoboh - 2014 C, Mass Rivals: Once considered to be second fiddle to Nerlens Noel, Goodluck has flourished with the departure of his friend.  His shot blocking ability is amazing and he is quite possibly the best shot blocker in the class .He has also become much more aggressive this season. His offensive game is also coming around, making him one of the top players in the class of 2014.

Kaleb Joseph - 2014 PG, Mass Rivals: Joseph is out to prove that he is one of the top point guards in his class; and at this point it is hard to argue against him. At 6-foot-3 he has great size for his position and uses it to his advantage. Kaleb has also shown a level of explosiveness that few lead guards possess. His around the back dribble and two handed finish over a defender was just a small sample size of what Kaleb can bring to the table. Outside of Tyus Jones and Emmanuel Mudiay, you will be hard-pressed to find a better point guard than him.

Matt Cimino - 2014 C, Mass Rivals:  On Saturday, Cimino showed aggressiveness that he had yet to display before. He attacked the glass and grabbed every rebound; he was also much more vocal in the post, calling for the ball when having mismatches. Matt has really stepped into his role as one of the featured players on his team. He looked like a man on a mission Saturday and has put himself on the watch list for a lot of new high major programs because of it.

Dominique Uhl - 2014 SF, Jersey Shore Warriors: Perhaps the surprise of the night, Dominique proved to be a major mismatch problem. Standing at a legitimate 6-foot-8, Uhl put the ball on the floor and drove past bigger defenders. He also showed the ability to knock down open shots. On the defensive end he used his length well to force turnovers or block shots. After a great showing against Goodluck and the Mass Rivals, expect his stock to rise quite a bit.

Romelo Trimble - 2014 PG, DC Assault: Romelo was at it again on Saturday, scoring 48 points in his two games. His performance against CT Select was especially impressive, as they needed all of his 21 points to hold on for the win. Maryland is getting a player that can really score the ball and play either guard position

Wade Baldwin - 2014 SG, Sports U: Baldwin was a major factor again for Sports U. The do-it-all guard led his team to victory over a scrappy Move Your Feet squad. Baldwin displays the kind of leadership that few players his age have. He already has a college ready body as well as a great jump shot, it’s no wonder high-major programs are coming after him hard.
