Philadelphia, PA (Future150) -- On the final day of the 2014 Reebok Breakout Classic, campers were finishing up their last games before heading home. Several prospects gave Future150 staff one last reason to give them some ink, including several talented big men. Here is who we liked on Friday...

Sedee Keita, 2016 PF, We R1: Possessing an incredible combination of size and skill at 6-foot-10, 225-pounds, Keita was impressive with his ability to play both inside and out this week at camp. He shows promise as a devastating pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop forward, plays with a high motor, and can even handle the basketball in the open floor.

Skal Labissiere, 2015 PF, M33M: The #6 prospect in the country finished off camp action in style today, scoring 22 points on 8-13 from the floor. His ability to score the basketball on all three levels makes him nearly unguarable. He continues to improve and his ceiling is as high as any other player in the 2015 class.

Temple Gibbs, 2016 G, Seton Hall Prep (NJ): T.J. is a Big East style guard in the mold of his older brothers Ashton & Sterling. He is a highly skilled combo guard who is an excellent perimeter shooter who can put points on the board in a hurry. He isn't afraid to play physical on-ball defense and loves to attack the basket and use his frame to his advantage.

Mike Watkins, 2015 PF, Team Philly: It's easy to fall in love with a high motor/energy power forward like Watkins, because he is the type of diffence maker every program wants, and that's exactly what Penn State is getting. A major steal at 6-foot-9, he is a bully on both ends on the low block with a ton of room to improve offensively.

Ebuka Izundu, 2016 PF, EOTO: Since first putting Izundu on the national radar at our Atlanta Main Event in April, it is clear that the 6-foot-10 athletic power forward is making major advancements in his game. His offensive skills are progressing nicely, and he is becoming a much better finisher around the rim, especially against big, quality big men.

Collin Goss, 2015 C, Team Takeover: The George Washington commit turned in a solid day, scoring around the rim, blocking shots, and even stepping out and hitting a couple of threes. He must work to get stronger but looks to have the skill set to succeed in the A-10. The Colonials staff did a great job of identifying him early and putting the work in to gain his commitment.

Ahmad Gilbert, 2015 SF, Constitution: Gilbert has transformed himself from a combo forward to a perimeter player in a short amount of time. He has improved his ball handling greatly and looks comfortable on the perimeter. Those looking for a wing who can score on both the interior and from the perimeter are going to take a long look at the Philadelphia area product. He has just begun to scratch the surface of his potential and could be a big riser in this class.

Horace Spencer, 2015 PF, Findlay Prep:  Another big man who has vastly improved on the offensive end of the floor in recent months, Spencer’s recruitment appears to be on the verge of exploding. He is an elite defensive big man who runs the floor well and is more than capable of finishing over other defenders. He showcased a refined post game and used a spin move very well to free himself up and get to the rim to score the ball. He will be highly sought after this summer.

Marquez Letcher, 2015 CF, DC Premier: A forward who has improved a ton in the past year, Letcher seems on his way to a bevy of new offers this month. At 6-foot-7, he has great length and is a fantastic athlete. He is best served playing in a transition setting, but has the chance to be a lock down defender in the future. He recently transferred to national powerhouse Montverde Academy (FL), a move that should only help to further his development.

Mustapha Heron, 2016 SF, New Heights: Herron was solid all weekend, but saved his best performance for last; dropping 16 points in the all-star game. He is a physical wing prospect with good vision and has the ability to lock up the opposition on defense. The Pittsburgh commit has the ability to play multiple positions and it will be interesting to see where he ultimately ends up playing.
