Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- The Reebok Breakout Camp has turned itself into one of the biggest events of the summer in recent years and this summer is no different. Top prospects from around the country trekked to Philadelphia in order to prove that they belonged as some of the elite players in the nation. While the live period didn’t start until 5 P.M., there were still plenty of players who stood out in the first set of games:

2014 PF Tariq Owens, B'Mores Finest:  Owens proved why he is the 22nd best power forward prospect in the nation on Wednesday night. He was active around the rim on the defensive end, altering shots and grabbing rebounds. While Owens left the scoring to his teammates, it is easy to see that he will be an instant impact guy at Ohio when he arrives on campus.

2016 PF Sedee Keita, We-R-1:  While he is one of the youngest players in the camp, Keita has a high ceiling. The big man is very active and runs the floor well. At 6-foot-9 he already has good size. While it remains to be seen how he continues to develop, Keita could be a major player in the class of 2016 due to his ability to score around the rim and alter shots.

2015 PG Noah Blackwell, Woodcreek High : Blackwell showed that he is one of the better point guards on the west coast during his first game of the camp. He used change of speed and direction to get to the rim on a few occasions as well as stroked it from three point land. It is also clear that he possesses good court vision and is more than capable of being the floor general  and running the show.

2014 SG Jeremiah Jefferson, DFW Metro : Jefferson had arguably the most impressive scoring performance of the night after finishing with 18 points on 50% shooting. The shooting guard also brought the ball up the floor quite a bit due to Rashad Vaughn being guarded by Emmanuel Mudiay. He also helped keep Mudiay in check on the other end of the floor as well.

2015 PG Traci Carter, We-R-1: Carter continued to show why he is one of the better young point guards in the Northeast with his ability to set up the offense. Carter also showed the ability to get to the rim and set his teammates up. With an improved thee point stroke, he could have the potential to become one of the top point guards in his class.

2015 CG Corey Sanders, Showtime Ballers:  One of the most electric players in the camp, Sanders lived up to his reputation. He was a blur with the ball in his hands and no one was able to stay in front of him. Sanders also showed off his quick hands, as he came away with a couple of steals.

2015 SF Tyler Lydon, Albany City Rocks: Lydon was originally a member of the 2014 class but decided to transfer to New Hampton and reclassify to 2015. The result has been that Lydon has become a high major recruit. At 6-foot-9, Lydon gets off the floor well on his jump shot and has range to the three point line; making him a dangerous perimeter weapon. In addition he is becoming more comfortable with his ability to attack off the dribble; it looks as though Lydon’s best ball is in front of him.
