New York, NY (Future150) -- June 15th is one of the most active days on the recruiting calender. College coaches can contact rising juniors directly for the first time, and often use that day to explain to recruits that they will begin to track them, recruit them, or even extend offers to them on the spot. 

That contact becomes nearly constent even once the day is done, as schools are always looking to get out to a quick start on the recruiting trail. With that in mind, Future150 looks at five alums who's recruitment has seen a major uptick since schools have been able to get a hold of them directly. 

Javian Fleming has to be considered one of the big winners of the month. The big man picked up an offer from Auburn shortly after their Elite camp last week. MTSU offered him as soon as the 15th hit, while a number of other schools couldn't wait to talk to him directly to extend offers. UAB, Cincinnati, Stephen F. Austin, Jackson State, Mississippi Valley State, Kennesaw State and ULM have all offered the big man since the April live periods. The 6-foot-9 big man has soft hands and is deceptively athletic, so it won't be a surprise when schools like Kansas State, George Washington and Murray State go from showing interest to offering the Mississippi native. 

Wichita State, Creighton and Nebraska have all been on Jordan Lathon for a few months already, and seem ready to play it out to the end with him. All three have been consistently involved this month as well, with Lathon heading to Wichita State last week. It's worth noting Boise State and Morehead State have gotten involved this month as well. Playing with Team Rush on the Adidas circuit, Lathon is intriguing thanks to his size (he stands at 6-foot-4) and basketball IQ. It would be shocking to see him get out of July without an offer from one of those three, and a handful of others as well. 

Mika Adams-Woods was a player that we tabbed for a breakout AAU season back in February and he hasn't disappointed. ECU and George Washington had offered back in October, while Canisius and Georgia Tech pulled the trigger this month. Syracuse, Butler, St. Joe's, EKU and Vermont are the programs who have all reached out in the weeks since direct contact began, and will be following him closely as he looks to lead the Albany City Rocks to an impressive month. At the end of the day, the 6-foot-2 lead guard has other worldly vision and has come along as a scorer as well. Expect more high-major programs to offer sooner rather than later. 

Traveler of the month should go to Southern Stampede guard Trey Doomes. The 6-foot-3 scorer visited Louisville, Tennessee, Mercer and Georgia Tech over the past two weeks. Tennessee Tech offered him on the 15th, joining Kennesaw State. Wake Forest reached out to him today, while Georgia, Auburn, FGCU and JMU are among the schools who will be tracking him this month that he has yet to visit. 

Things stayed within the region for under-the-radar big man Sean Good. George Washington, Penn State, St. Joes, Colgate and Quinnipiac have all been in contact with the 6-foot-10 forward. Playing with Team Final 16U, his ability to stretch defenses and rebound make him an enticing option for anyone looking for a skilled big man. 

Plenty of others will pick up offers throughout July, which is the beauty of the live periods. Follow along with Future150 as we hit the road next week to track some of the top prospects in the nation.
