Dallas, TX (Future150) -- After two days of play, the 16U division remains wide open. Plenty of players have emerged and helped their teams to get into bracket play, and several look like they will have a chance to play at the division one level down the road: 

Adonis Fox, 2016 C, Wolfpack: A work in progress on the offensive end, the 6-foot-7 prospect is a beastly rim protector on the defensive end. He blocked several shots in his game on Friday evening and he altered even more due to his size and length. He has trouble catching the ball at this point in his development, but he runs the floor well and his footwork is pretty good.

Damian Bell, 2016 SG, DFW Spurs: Bell is a wing that can create his own shot as well as shots for others. He plays in attack mode at all times and rarely gives his defender a chance to take a possession off. He is capable of scoring through contact at the rim and makes good decisions with the ball in his hands.

Jordan London, 2016 PG, Faith Lions: The Future150 alum showcased his good vision and passing ability during his game on Friday afternoon. While he didn’t look to put up a ton of points, he showed that he is also capable of getting to the rim and finishing through contact. With his size he will be a point guard at the next level and with the amount he has improved it looks like he will be a pretty good one.

Av’eon Gilbert, 2016 SF, Team Rim Blazers-JV: Another lanky prospect with some potential, Gilbert was a major weapon for his team as a scorer on Friday afternoon. He got to the rim at will and was able to use his athleticism to finish. He is a bouncy player who is just starting to scratch the surface of his potential.

Devin Gifford, 2016 SG, GameFace Elite: Possibly the most gifted scorer of the day, Gifford showed that he can put the ball in the hoop from all three levels. The wiry shooting guard was able to create his own shot and used his size well to create space and get open looks. His mindset is to attack first and not let misses get to him, so far it has worked in this tournament. 

Michael McGraw, 2016 G, Team Texas Blue: The 6-foot-2 combo guard is a fun player to watch. He is a crafty finisher around the rim and uses great body control to create opportunities for himself around the rim. He’s also an unselfish player who is a willing facilitator and is also a physical on-ball defender as well.

Cameron Collier, 2016 PG, Wolfpack: The smooth scorer and strong bodied combo guard had a very good day when it came to scoring the basketball, whether he was slashing to the basket or knocking down the long range jump shot. He is a passionate player on the floor and gives 100% on both ends at all times.

Jalon Pipkins, 2017 PG, DFW Spurs Elite: The 6-foot lead guard was a standout on Friday with his court vision and exceptional long-range shooting ability. He created opportunities for himself as well as his teammates and he understands spacing when he’s on the floor. Overall, a good day for the Paris (TX) product.

Cedric White, 2017 SF, Pearland Hawks: The most effective offensive player on his team, White was an active body around the basket, giving himself several easy baskets using his strength, high motor & long arms. He finished well through contact and also played solid on-ball defense as well.

Jordan Burnham, 2016 SF, GameFace Elite: While Gifford was the primary scorer, Burnham wasn’t too far behind him in that regard. He is also a good rebounder that stepped up and guarded the biggest player on the floor. His versatility makes him an interesting prospect and it will be interesting to see if he continues to be used in different roles throughout the weekend.
