Portland, OR (Future150) -- It was an eventful weekend for Future150, as we hit the road for Portland, Oregon to take in action at the Gym Rats President's Day Tournament, where we were able to uncover several national sleeper prospects in the 2022 and 2023 classes, while evaluating some national level programs and prospects. 

Team FOE Wins 8th Grade Division

Coming all the way from Dallas, Texas, it was strictly a business trip for Team FOE (TX), and they passed their tests with flying colors, defeating a strong Team Teague (IN) team in the championship game 50-48. The catalyst for their team over the weekend, and also a strong prospect for the future, was Cason Wallace. An athletic and tough wing player who loves to play downhill, he's really making noise in the Dallas area with his play, and should continue to open eyes this AAU season. Expect the same from 6'4" wing Marckiest Sykes, who's showing expanded perimeter range and evolving ball skills.

Urban ASAK Brings 7th Grade Championship Home

Another team making the long trip to the West Coast from Texas was Urban ASAK, who won the 7th grade title in impressive fashion. After finishing pool play a perfect 3-0 record, they were even more impressive during bracket play. First, they knocked off Metro Mirage BBall Club 68-32. They followed that with an impressive 65-51 win over the Oakland Soliders in the final four. Saving their best for last, they absolutely blitzed Seattle Rotary by a score of 75-55 to win the championship, leaving no doubt that they were the best 13U program in the field last weekend. 

4 Prospects Who Made Waves At Gym Rats President's Day:

Aidan Mahaney, G, Team Flight (CA): The 6'1" point guard may have been the most impressive prospect in the field at Gym Rats. He's a talented floor general who is not only a natural scorer, but he's a tough driver and impressive set-up man as well. His stock nationally rose significantly after his big weekend.

Nahmier Robinson, G, Seattle Rotary (WA): The son of former NBA standout Nate Robinson, the 5'7" point guard is a serious talent in his own right. Also a spectacular football player, he's tracking in his father's footsteps as a special young talent who will make serious waves in Seattle over the next several years. 

Jadyn Marshall, G, Oakland Soldiers (CA): We really enjoyed the natural scoring skills of the 6'1" combination guard, who filled the stat sheets all weekend. What stood out most to us was his mid-range game, which is very advanced for a prospect in the 8th grade. His stock is rising after his play in Portland. 

Tyler Linhardt, Post, Seattle Rotary (WA): The most productive prospect for Rotary's 8th grade unit was the 6'6" post, who was super effective thanks to his diverse game. Not only is he tough around the block, using his meaty frame, but he's also a highly skilled perimeter shooter who can stretch defenses.
