On the 2nd day of Peach Jam, there were a number of 2016 prospects who stole the show yet again. For awhile now, we have been saying that this class is the deepest and most talented we've seen, so far they are backing that up:

Samir Sehic, 2015 PF, Houston Hoops: Sehic is a big bodied forward that gets very good position and plays hard, making him a phenomenal rebounder. He was instrumental in holding on for a big opening win over the Oakland Soldiers. Sehic also has a polished post game, which he showed off throughout the contest. Nebraska head coach Tim Miles was in attendance and you can bet the Huskers will be making a serious push for one of the best rebounders in 2015.

C.J. Walker, 2016 PG, Speice Indy Heat: Walker has been steady all season, and Thursday was no exception. The talented point guard wasn’t content just to run his team, but show off a decent stroke from beyond the arc as well. He doesn’t get sped up with the ball in his hands and rarely turned it over. It appears as he is well on his way to a few new offers if he can continue to play as well as he did today.

Marlon Hunter, 2015 CG, Arkansas Wings: Hunter is a powerful guard who is at his best in transition. With their game vs Southern Stampede quickly turning into a track meet, it played right into Hunter’s strengths. He used his frame well to create space and get into the lane, where he either finished at the rim or found his teammates for open looks. He must improve his shooting stroke but there is no doubt that he is a division 1 prospect.

Tony Carr, 2016 PG, Team Final: Carr was a handful for The Family guards all afternoon. No matter who they put on the talented lead guard, he still got in the lane and found a way to either draw a foul, finish, or find open teammates. At 6-foot-2 he has good size for the position and plays with a high basketball IQ. Temple offered in June, which was his first high-major offer, but they certainly won’t be his last.

Quintez Cephus, 2016 CG, Georgia Stars: Cephus is capable of playing either guard position but showcased his ridiculous shooting ability on Thursday afternoon. He has great form on his jumper and is more than capable of creating open looks for both himself and others. With the ideal size and frame, Cephus seems poised to be a high-major combo guard sooner rather than later.

Chris Clarke, 2015 SF, Boo Williams: Clarke was an absolute beast in his Thursday morning game against All-Ohio Red. The 6’6” small forward ran the floor, attacked the basket and made plays on the defensive end. Clarke is a big, athletic wing who has great bounce and utilizes his size to his advantage. He finished with 20 points (8-14), 10 rebounds and four steals. Creighton, Iowa State, Maryland, Virginia Tech and others were on hand.

Jordan Ford, 2016 PG, Oakland Soldiers: With two five-star big men in the frontcourt, Ford runs the show in the backcourt for the Oakland Soldiers. The 6’1” point guard is quick off the bounce and has great handles. Ford is the facilitator, with an ability to penetrate off the bounce, find an open teammate or hit a floater in the lane. He finished with 12 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals against Houston Hoops on Thursday morning.

Amir Coffey, 2016 SG, Howard Pulley Panthers: Howard Pulley is stocked full of shooters on the perimeter, but it’s Coffey that takes the offense to an entirely different level. The 6’6” shooting guard is long and athletic, and he is extremely skilled at getting to the rim and finishing. Coffey also makes a big impact on the glass, and he knows when to kick it out for an open three. He had 14 points, 10 rebounds and five assists against the Mac Irvin Fire on Thursday afternoon.

Micah Bradford, 2016 PG, Mac Irvin Fire: Bradford has continued to fly under the radar, but that is fit to change if he continues to perform at a high level. Mac Irvin Fire teammates Nick Rakocevic and Zach Norvell have drawn the majority of attention in Illinois in the 2016 class but Bradford should not be left out of the conversation. He has great handles and an ability to create off the bounce. Bradford also showed a good stroke from the outside, hitting back-to-back triples against Wings Elite on Thursday.

Brandon Robinson, 2016 SG, Georgia Stars: Robinson was one of the most impressive performers on Thursday at any level. Aside from hitting at least five triples, Robinson showed his ability to get to the basket, find open teammates and make an impact on the defensive end. At 6’6”, Robinson is a long, athletic wing with high-end potential. He currently has offers from North Florida, Tennessee and Tulsa. Robinson is also hearing from Alabama, California, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, George Washington, Kansas State, Maryland and Texas.
