Bowie, MD (Future150) -- On Saturday the DMVElite group kicked off their showcase, the DMVElite80. As the name implies there was plenty of talent to be found in the 80 participants. Members of the 2014, 2015, 2016 classes gathered in Bowie, MD to get better and compete. Here are some of the players who stood out:

Justin Jenifer, 2015 PG, Milford Mill: He was relentless in attacking the rim and showed off his shooting stroke as well.  He is super quick in the open floor and looked to push the pace when given the chance. Jenifer might not have the best size for his position but there is no denying how efficient he is on the offensive end.

Justin Robinson, 2015 PG, St. James: Robinson was one of the bigger surprises of the event. At 6-foot-1, he has decent size for the position and showed the ability to both run a team and put points on the board. He is a super smooth player who was un-guardable at times throughout the day. Robinson recently transferred from Montrose Christian to St. James and should be able to have an immediate impact.

Leroy Butts, 2015 CF, Bishop O’Connell:  The combo forward proved why he is one of the top players in his area regardless of class. Butts finished everything around the rim and hit the glass with a ferocity. At 6-foot-7 he needs to work on his handle a bit to fully make the move to small forward. That being said, he is a high-major athlete with tremendous potential.

Joe Hampton, 2016 CF, Dematha: Hampton is another talented combo forward in the DMV area that has the skillset to play either forward slot. He is a solid rebounder and shows good touch around the basket. In addition, he stepped out and hit a few perimeter jumpers. Even though he showed up a little late to the party, he made his presence known right away, proving how talented he really is.

Therence Mayimba, 2014 SF, St. James: The winner of the defensive MVP of the event, Mayimba lived up to his reputation. The wing forward is a lockdown defender that can guard multiple positions. While his offensive game has yet to catch up with his defense, he will step in and give a program an elite level defender from day one.

Randall Broddie, 2016 CG, Potomac: Broddie was one of the more impressive shooters in the entire event, hitting shots from literally everywhere on the floor. Broddie even hit a half-court shot to win during one of his team’s games. He has good size at 6-foot-2 and has a great shot at being one of the top players in his class if he continues to grow and develop.

Steffen Davis, 2014 PG, Maret:  Davis is one of the more underrated point guards in the area and played well on Saturday. He has decent vision and a great three point shot. Davis has been made a priority recruit by FDU and Quinnipiac and has interest from others as well. Low major programs would be smart to take a look at Davis sooner rather than later.

Michael Tertsea, 2016 C, John Carroll: Tertsea recently came to the United States from Nigeria and has already made an impact. He is great defender and rebounder who runs the floor well and has great potential.  He is a rim protector with great size and his offensive game is coming around. Look for Tertsea to have a breakout season and draw serious interest from schools around the country.

Nyrhique Smith, 2016 PG, Douglass:  The New Jersey transplant looked more than comfortable in his new surroundings on Saturday. Smith is a big point guard who has all the physical tools to be an elite point guard moving forward. He has good speed and great athleticism. He had the chance to run the show a little bit during the event and didn’t disappoint; finding his teammates in transition and getting to the rim.
