Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- On the second day of the Reebok Breakout Camp, many top players from all over the country showed why they are considered to be elite players. As players became more comfortable with one another, games became smoother and everyone started playing better. Here are some of the guys who really stood out throughout the day:

Rashad Vaughn, 2014 SG, Wisconsin Playground Warriors: The talented Minnesota native showed why he is considered to be one of the top scorers in the nation on Thursday. He got to the rim when he wanted to as well as showed off his range. He is an explosive wing that can make plays for his teammates but excels when he is putting the ball in the basket.

Jalen Lindsey, 2014 SF, Georgia Stars: The one knock on Lindsey through his career is that his jumper has lagged behind the rest of his game. Fast forward to this week and you’ll see that Lindsey has turned his shot into a major weapon. While the wing has to learn how to balance his game out now, he has all the tools to be a great player.

Mark Vital, 2016 SG, Southern Elite: One of the youngest players at the camp, Vital is also one of the most explosive. He pushed the pace and finished numerous plays above the rim. While he is far from a finished product, it is obvious to see the future is very bright for Vital.

Ben Bentil, 2014 PF,  We-R-1:  People are just beginning to realize how good Bentil can be. The big man plays with a never-ending motor and believes that every rebound is his. He locks in on defense and erases shots. As a former soccer player, Bentil has great conditioning and footwork; making him highly sought after

Josh Perkins, 2014 PG, Colorado Miners: Perkins is one of the top point guards in the nation; and for good reason. Not only is he and elite passer, but an elite ball handler as well. He can get to any spot on the floor and creates for his teammates. Perkins can also stroke it from deep, making him that much more dangerous.

Dwayne Bacon, 2015 SF, Showtime Ballers: Bacon is the perfect example of a versatile player. He has the skills to make an impact at the three perimeter positions. Bacon finished a game today with 21 points, 7  rebounds, and 4 assists. He is an athletic stat-stuffer who should be recruited by high majors around the country.

Johnnie Vassar,2014 PG, N/A: Vassar was one of the best point guards in camp on day two, turning in a 28 point, 6 assist performance. The 6-foot lead guard got to the rim by using his explosiveness as well as hit a couple of threes. He also plays incredibly good defense. Simply put, Vassar proved he’s a high major point guard.

Vic Law, 2014 SF, Meanstreets: The newest member of the Northwestern program showed why head man Chris Collins made him such a priority this spring. Law is a super bouncy wing who put the ball on the floor and scored at the cup. He used his length to disrupt his opponents on the other end, forcing turnovers  and grabbing rebounds. What makes Law even scarier is that there is still plenty of room for him to improve.

Shaqquan Aaron, 2014 SF, Seattle Rotary: No one was better than Shaqquan on Thursday, the wing showed his versatility by playing point guard for a majority of the day. Despite playing point, Aaron also turned in a 29 point outing and a 17 point outing. Aaron also rebounded the ball well on the second day and never let up even when competition started to dip a bit. Louisville fans should be very excited for him to arrive

Derrick Jones, 2015 SF, We-R-1: Jones is still far from a finished product but it’s easy to see that he has the opportunity to be special. An elite athlete, he attacked the rim with a ferocity, often using a spin move that left defenders looking foolish. Jones has a freakish vertical leap that allowed him to throw down a couple of thunderous put back dunks as well.

Emmanuel Mudiay, 2014 PG, Texas Pro: Mudiay finally got things going on Thursday. The big point guard was able to create shots for his teammates and was making plays all over the floor. He has great vision and uses his size to his advantage.  Mudiay got a majority of his points off the drive as usual, but his shot looks to be improving a bit.

Romelo Trimble, 2014 CG, D.C. Assault: While we’re not sure that Trimble is a point guard as most services list him as, there is no doubting his shooting capability. Trimble was red hot from deep, hitting 10 of his 15 threes. Maryland has a lot of perimeter scoring coming in next season.

Jared Nickens, 2014 SG, Sports U: Nickens is another big time shooter heading to Maryland next season. Over the past year he has vastly improved his ball handling ability and toughness. It has paid off for the wing, who has been scoring as steady as anyone throughout the camp.

Dominic Magee, 2014 PG, Louisiana Jaguars:  Magee is currently making a case as to why he’s one of the most underrated point guards in the nation. At 6-foot-3, he has great size for the position. He stepped up when it mattered most for his team, hitting a game winning mid-range jumper. Oklahoma State is working hard to garner a commitment.

Kyle Kuzma, 2014 SF, Dorian’s Pride: Kuzma is a long wing that has parlayed his growth spurt into being one of the hottest prospects on the circuit this spring. He can shoot it from deep or score when posting up smaller defenders. At 6-foot-9, he has great size and uses it to cause havoc on the defensive end.
