Manhattan, NY (Future150) -- We had a chance to evaluate several future stars in the 16U division during the first stop of the 2017 Under Armour Association. With a solid blend of rising sophomores and juniors, the future is bright for the following prospects heading into the second live period this coming weekend:

Nico Mannion, 2020 PG, Earl Watson Elite (CA): Coming into AAU season, the Arizona prospect has been tracking as one of the elite point guards nationally in the 2020 class. He didn't disappoint in New York City, averaging 23.3 points, 5.3 assists, 5.0 rebounds & 2.8 steals per game. More imporantly, he led Earl Watson Elite to a 3-1 record on the weekend, positioning themselves nicely heading into the second stop of the circuit.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, 2019 PF, KC Run GMC (KS): The focal point of the KC Run GMC 15U title last July, he remains the top dog on a talented 16U group this season. He didn't disappoint in his first weekend of action at Under Armour, averaging 10.3 points, 10.7 rebounds & 3.3 blocks per game. After the dust settled on the first weekend, his team stands at 4-0, and look very much like they could win back-to-back titles behind the play of their 6'9" workhorse.

Anthony Edwards, 2020 SG, Atlanta Xpress (GA): The powerful 6'4" combo guard is turning into one of the hottest names in the Southeast, and he further proved that last weekend. A born scorer, he averaged 18.8 points per game in New York City, while also putting up 6.8 rebounds per outing. With multiple high-major offers already in his pocket, you can expect several more to follow this spring and summer.

Jason Harris, 2020 PF, Splash City (CA): The strong and explosive 6'8" big man was one of the elite middle school prospects over the past few years, and he broke out in a big way playing at the 16U level this past weekend. The motor he displayed was unreal, and his numbers backed up his aggressiveness. He put up 16.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game, and he should become an immediate high-major target on the West Coast.

Eric Dixon, 2019 PF, We R1 (PA): One of the most under-appreciated big men in the country for his class, he's as productive as any big at the high school level. He averaged 18.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per contest in Manhattan. After the weekend came to a close, he picked up his first high-major offer (Oklahoma State), which should signify the beginning of a hotly contested battle for his services. We R1 is now in good position with a 3-1 record heading into the second stop of the circuit. 

Noah Farrakhan-Oliver, 2020 PG, Team Rio (NJ): With each viewing, we become more impressed by the St. Benedict's (NJ) prospect. An athletic and quick lead guard at 6'1", he's also got an impressively polished mid-range game as well. At this point in time, there's not three other point guard prospects who are shining as bright as the New Jersey native.

Precious Achiuwa, 2019 SF, New Heights (NY): High-major schools are already lining up for the 6'7" wing prospect, and he didn't discourage them with his play last weekend. A smooth slasher who loves to attack the rim, he's also very adept at racking up rebounding numbers, plucking 7.3 boards per game for New Heights. As his scoring numbers improve, he'll see even more interest and offers come his way.

Zach Harvey, 2019 SG, KC Run GMC (KS): The 6'5" natural-scorer is set to see his stock explode over the next few months. He's one of the elite prospects in the class as a scorer, and he can get it done whether he's slashing or knocking down shots from the perimeter. He averaged 17.8 points over the weekend, making life very difficult for defenses. He moves extremely well without the ball in his hands, and he should continue to see his scoring numbers rise over the spring.
