New Orleans, LA (Future150) -- Future150 takes a look at the top performers from Day 3 at the UA Association in New Orleans from this past weekend.  Tons of players received offers and here are just a few that made our list.

Top Performers:

Jonathan Araujo, 2016 PF/C, Team Breakdown

Araujo is a very physical big man. He displayed the ability to dominate in the low post area as well shooting the mid-range jump shot. He is the type of player that can help Team Breakdown through the strong UAA Circuit. He already has an offer from instate USF, which are known to recruit good, solid BIGs and forwards. Look for him to have a great rest of the summer circuit and for his college recruitment to pick up.

Nazreon Reid, 2018 PF/C, Sports U

Reid is a special kid to watch at his age because of his height and maturity level on the floor. Some are already saying he is a Pro. His game is so versatile that he becomes a matchup problem for most teams he goes up against. He showed he is ability to shoot the 5'-15' jump shots, which stretches the floor out offensively.  This causes the other team to spread out and guard. He is a big that is a good passer, which most big men struggle with. Reid is displaying his ability to do it at a young age. His recruitment is going to sky rocket this summer.

MJ Walker, 2017 SF, ATL Xpress

Walker is nationally ranked #10 by in the class of 2017. He showed to all college scouts this past weekend that he can shoot consistently and that he has the ability to score off ball screen situations.  In the open floor Walker is hard to guard because he is so explosive and strong when attacking the rim. He holds offers from Auburn and FSU with many more to come. He had the college coaches this weekend raving about what type of player he is and his overall physical abilities.

Joe Hampton, 2016 PF, DC Premier

Hampton is a skilled big that has the ability to score in a lot of ways. For his size he handles the ball well and has a very nice face up game. Plenty of college coaches noticed Hampton's ability to work the high post and short corner area.  He knocked down 10-15 foot jump shots consistently. The college coaches from this past weekend said he has a strong, solid body frame and can handle the physical part of being in the low post, but also can stretch a defense out with his scoring abilities. He holds offers from Maryland, Xavier, Virginia Tech, Penn State and many more.  Hampton originally verbally committed to Penn State.

Cedric Russell, 2017 CG, Louisiana Elite

Russell is a scoring machine and he showed that ability this past weekend in front of several college coaches. His ability to knock down the mid-range and 3-ball consistently turned the heads of a lot of coaches.  He handles the ball very well and knows how to attack the gaps of any defense. He is a verbal commit to in-state LSU.  The LSU Head Coach watched him this weekend.  Future150 also learned Russell has an offer on the table from Baylor University.

Tim Cameron, 2016 SG, ATL Xpress

Cameron is a very energetic guard that can get it done on both ends of the floor. This weekend he displayed that in front of several college coaches during the first LIVE period. He showed his scoring ability by scoring off the one and two dribble pull up and also displaying to college coaches he can score under contact. Cameron has a quick release that’s hard for opposing teams to guard. A lot of schools this weekend were talking about how well he plays defensively. Coaches also raved about his ability to cause turnovers because he never gives up on defending the ball screen. This was a good weekend for him.  Ole Miss offered him this past weekend and has a strong interest from Auburn, Arkansas, Clemson and many others.

College coaches this past weekend were able to see him stretch the floor offensively. His ability to put the ball on floor and score in various areas of the floor impressed a lot of college coaches and scouts. It was different to see a player of his size standing at 6’9" show that he had the ability to guard the 3-5 position which will be a BIG factor on his recruitment because he is so versatile. He currently holds offers from Syracuse, Villanova, Temple, Tulane and others.

Malik Fitts, 2016 SF, Earl Watson Elite

Fitts is a wing that showed he is very skilled with ball in his hands and when he is on the court you have to locate him right away because of the type of player he is and his abilities. He brings that California style of play.  For instance, Fitts is able to utilize the one and two dribble pull up.  He can also score in transition, which is something that wings from California are known for. College coaches and scouts love his versatility, being able to score and turn right around and go lock down the opposing player.

He showed that he can be trusted to make in-game decisions.  He shoots the ball well off the dribble and displayed a nice mid-range game that had college coach’s talking.  Surely his performance from this past weekend will earn him quite a few phone calls. Hester holds offers from Florida, Miami, Mississippi State, Louisville, Texas A&M, G Tech, USF, FSU and more. 

Alani Moore, 2017 PG, DC Premier

Moore is a strong PG that showed he can handle all different types of situations.

He can change the pace of the game at any time and it’s hard to guard him when he is playing like that.
