Louisville, KY (Future150) -- College coaches were out again for the second viewing period of the recruiting season and so was Future150.  This week's stop was once again the UA Association in Louisville, KY.

After the first session in New Orleans and the UA shoe teams getting their feet wet, players settled in and they played more relaxed.  This weekend featured some of the better match ups and some old rivalries from last summer.

Let's take a look at some of the top performers from this past weekend and how they faired in the coaches eyes. 

Last summer we got a good glance at AAU nationals of 2018 PG Jahvon Quinerly of Sports U.  At the time you could see he had all the tools to be a great player.  This year he has added weight to his frame, improved his foot speed and is making shots from all over the court.  That is a recipe for maybe the best point guard in the class.  This past weekend he displayed all that and much more. His feel for the game and the ability to control the game is something you just can't teach.  Look for him to make a big jump in the next rankings update.

The KC Run GMC 2018 team is loaded this year with players who are both well known such as PF Bol Bol.  There are also players on the the team that don't have the big name but fit the billing of a D1 prospect. Class of 2018 PF Keenan Fitzmorris and SF Elijah Farr are just that.  They are high major prospects with tons of upside to their game. Fitzmorris is super long, active and a rim protector while Farr is very versatile, big-bodied wing and can score on all three levels.  You gotta love how these two players compliment each other.

Louisiana has produced a bevy of talent the last couple years in the basketball recruiting world.  This year is no different with 2017 SG Josh Anderson of the Louisiana Elite.  He kind of reminds of Brandon Sampson in the 2015 class. Anderson has long arms and is really athletic.  He is one of the few players that was very consistent in how hard he plays on both ends of the floor.  That translates in the points on the scoreboard.

Notables:

2016 SF AJ Wilson- DC Premier

He is a very athletic and physical small forward that had a great weekend in Session 2 of UAA in Louisville, KY.  Wilson was displaying his abilities on both sides of the ball. College coaches were talking about how physical he is and how well he shoots the ball and stretches the floor offensively. He showed the college coaches that he is very powerful when attacking the rim and he can shoot the ball off the dribble, which is why he has some offers from Penn State, VCU, Towson, Drexel and will obtain more offers as the summer circuit continues.

2016 SF Deandra Hunter-Philly Pride

Hunter is the type of player that college coaches love.  What he can do at his position really helps a team.  This past weekend he grabbed the attention of several college coaches during the second NCAA Live period and he showed them that he can stretch the floor with his offensive abilities and guard the 2-5. He can bring some good intangibles to the right college program and he currently holds offers from NC State, Oklahoma State, La Salle, Temple and Hofstra just to name a few.

2018 CG Greg Williams – Louisiana Elite

This past weekend was probably one of Greg's best weekends so far because he played on a level that college coaches want to see him play on. He showed coaches that he can score all over the floor and he can score off the ball as well.  His versatility and on-ball defense are the envy of any coach. He is strong when attacking the rim and conducted a shooting clinic by shooting off the dribble and knocking down open shots.

2018 Wing Jordan Phillips- MWA Elite

Phillips is a special type of player because he is versatile and can play two positions, making him a match up problem for opposing teams. He displayed his mid-range shooting ability and court vision.  Phillips can also stretch the floor, which causes driving lanes to open up and he showed how quick he is when attacking off the dribble.

2018 PF Rodgerick Brown- Team Thad

Brown is a kid that likes to play with good energy on both sides of the ball. He is a true PF and knows how to play the position. Brown rebounded authoritatively this past weekend and knows how to finish around the rim. With a college ready body at 15 years old college coaches were eyeing him the whole weekend. Expect his stock to rise even higher and he will be receiving some great interest from schools later this summer.

2016 J.J. Caldwell- Houston Defenders

The smart point guard Caldwell has a very strong body.  He knows how to push his teammates and get them to play; he had a great weekend at session 2 of UAA by showing his abilities to score the ball in multiple ways. Caldwell also showed the college coaches that he can run a ball screen.  He has offers from USC, Wichita State, and Memphis.
