Roselle, NJ (Future150) -- On the final day of the Primetime Shootout at Roselle Catholic, there were plenty of close games throughout the day that led to fantastic finishes. While some teams got the chance to play competition they normally wouldn’t, it was a couple of rivalry games that took center stage; most notably Roselle Catholic (NY) vs. St. Peter’s Prep (NJ). Overall, it was a mix of big names, unsigned seniors, and underclassmen that stood out:

Kobe Eubanks, 2014 SF, Our Savior New American: Eubanks has had a monster senior season and Sunday was no different, as he started off the game hitting his first four three pointers before finally missing. The wing can really shoot it from deep and rebounds it well for his position too. It’s no wonder why he is one of the most sought after players left in 2014.

Mahir Johnson, 2014 SG, Chester: Johnson has been having a monster senior season as well, but has yet to draw any considerable interest. The 6-foot-1 guard can really score the rock and has been the main weapon for Chester all season. He can score on all three levels and was a major reason his team was able to bounce back and grab a win on Sunday.

Robert Johnson, 2014 PG, Benedictine: The future Indiana Hoosier is one of the top shooters in the senior class and turned in a 29 point performance just a day after putting up 30. He has seemingly unlimited range and is confident in his shot. He should give Tom Crean another capable scorer next season in Bloomington.

Matt Farrell, 2014 PG, Point Pleasant : The former BC commit has to be considered one of the top point guards available on the east coast. While he doesn’t jump off the page at some, he is a smart lead guard with a good handle who can finish around and through contact at the rim. He can also shoot it from beyond the arc and did what he could to keep his team close against a very talented Patrick School (NJ) squad. Look for Farrell’s list to expand a bit before it gets smaller.

Hasahn French, 2017 SF, Commonwealth Academy: French is a bulldog of a player who attacks the rim and either finishes or uses his explosiveness to grab the miss and score on a put back. He has a strong build and is active on the glass. He also has a good handle for a player of his size. French has a high ceiling and it appears that he is just beginning to scratch the surface.

Angel Delgado, 2014 PF, The Patrick School: Delgado has been one of the best rebounders in the country since he burst onto the scene last year, and now his offensive game has begun to develop as well. He was able to score in the post against Point Pleasant and was his usual self when it came to grabbing rebounds. He is the type of player that should thrive around the talent that Seton Hall has brought in around him next season.

Cheick Diallo, 2015 PF, Our Savior New American: Diallo is an explosive leaper and a great shot blocker. Against Pace Academy (NC), he was charged with guarding a bigger player in Gods Power Ogide and still got the better of him. He finishes almost everything around the rim and has been adding a face-up game to his arsenal this year as well.

Jeromy Rodriguez, 2016 SF, Pope John XXIII:  He may have just gotten to the states in October, but it is clear that he is more than comfortable playing the American game. A versatile prospect who can guard four positions, Rodriguez is also a tenacious rebounder and one of the better passing forwards that Future150 has seen this year. He looks to have an incredibly bright future.

Isaiah Briscoe, 2015 CG, Roselle Catholic: Briscoe is one of the most electric players in the junior class, and Sunday night he proved just that. He is almost impossible to guard thanks to his quickness and ability to score the ball from anywhere on the floor.  He is also a great ball handler and underrated passer as well and could potentially play point guard full time at the next level.

Bryce Aiken, 2016 PG, The Patrick School: Aiken is a pass first point guard who can shoot it as well. While he doesn’t have great size yet, he is a smart player who consistently puts up results. He ran the offense and set up his teammates down the stretch to help his team get a closely contested win.

Veer Singh, 2016 SF, St. Peter’s Prep: Singh has burst onto the scene in the past few months and for good reason. The forward showed that he can shoot it from range as well as score off the bounce. He is a high energy player who rebounds the ball well too. While it remains to be seen if he ends up as a SF or a PF, Singh looks as though he could be pushing for a top 100 spot in the Future150 rankings when they are updated.

Moustapha Diagne, 2015 PF, Pope John XXIII: Diagne has always been a tenacious rebounder and defender, but has come a long way on the offensive end. He finished through contact and ran the floor very well for a player of his size. At one point he even stepped out and hit a 17 footer. If he can do that consistently he will be one of the best bigs in 2015 and one of the most sought after players in the country.

Nate Pierre-Louis, 2017 PG, St. Peter’s Prep: The freshman point guard played with poise and didn’t get rattled, ultimately helping to lead his team to a hard fought victory over Roselle Catholic. He got his shot off and created opportunities for his teammates as well. He also hit a couple of big shots in the early going and helped his team to remain calm when they got down to RC early in the 2nd quarter.
