Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Under Armour Association Finals got started on Wednesday night with a plethora of enticing Showcase Games, which gave us a glimpse of several prospects at the 17U level who deserve some ink as we begin the 2nd evaluation period of July. Here a few of the standouts from the night:

Quade Green, 2017 PG, We R1: The 6-foot Neumann-Goretti (PA) rising sophomore is proving that he's an elite prospect nationally in the 2017 class, and showed exactly why he belongs with the big boys on the big stage on Wednesday night. A fearless penetrator and calculated lead guard, Green has all the tools to become the next great point guard from the Philadelphia area.

Romello White, 2016 PF, Stackhouse Elite: The 6-foot-8 post is currently ranked as the #137 prospect in the country in the 2016 class, but he will see his name rise significantly when we revise the rankings in the coming weeks. He's active on the glass, runs the floor well, can finish around the rim against contact, and even shows the ability to step out and knock down the 15 foot jumper.

Jaylen Brown, 2015 SG, Game Elite: The 6-foot-6 wing is getting better by the week, and he was extremely impressive on Wednesday night. Whether he was attacking the basket, knocking down shots from the perimeter, or dunking on helpless defenders in the paint, simply put, he did whatever he wanted. He will continue to rise in our updated rankings, and if he continues to get better, he could find himself as the #1 prospect in the country in the near future.

Adrian Moore, 2016 SF, Louisiana Elite: Everytime we see Moore he is steadily improving areas of his game.  Tonight in the UA Final showcase game, he displayed his long range game knocking down 3-4 three pointers and serveral mid range shots. He scored 20 points and had 3 assists. Early in his career he was known for being a great athlete but times have changed and his skill level has caught up.  He has a really high ceiling to his game.

Doral Moore, 2015 C, Atlanta XPress: In a matchup against top five talent Diamond Stone, it was the 6-foot-11 Luella (GA) product who impressed us with his mid-range shooting and improved footwork on the interior. His shot-blocking and shot-altering ability is where he is most impressive, but his offense is really beginning to come along.

Samir Doughty, 2015 PG, Team Philly: For the second week in a row during evaluation period play, the 6-foot-3 point guard impressed with his ability to get to the rim and finish. In a 68-58 comeback win over Team Superstar, he was unstoppable in the second half for Team Philly, getting to the rim at will, finishing with 22 points. Look for him to continue to cause problems this week for defenses.

Troy Baxter, 2016 SF, Team Breakdown: There aren't many prospects in the 2016 class who are more fun to watch than the 6-foot-8 wing. A spectacular athlete, Troy showed off a new dimension to his game on Wednesday night; an ability to take his defender off-the-dribble and finish at the rim. If he continues to hone his perimeter skills, he can become a top 30 prospect in the country.

Terence Davis, 2015 SG, Team Thad: The muscular 6-foot-4 wing is rounding into form this July. The football star has fine tuned his roundball skills, and it showed on Wednesday. He knocked down jump shots from the perimeter, fearlessly attacked the rim, and defended very well. It's no surprise high major schools are attempting to lure him to their campus to play both basketball and football at the next level.
