Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- Friday action at the 2014 Under Armour Association Finals gave us more of the same from previous days, under-the-radar prospects who stuck out with their strong play. Milton High School (GA) big man Chris Lewis stole the show, but several others proved worthy of praise as well.

Chris Lewis, 2016 PF, Atlanta XPress: Georgia and Georgia Tech are recruiting the 6-foot-8 manchild extremely hard, and both programs had members of their staff on hand Friday to watch him dismantle a Las Vegas Prospects 16U team with his finishing ability, high motor, and strength on the inside. He is an excellent rebounder and is a physical defender as well.

Tomas Murphy, 2017 F, NE Playaz: Very few rising sophomores are as skilled at this point as the 6-foot-7 Northfield Mount Hermon (NH) product. What was most impressive about his game on Friday was that he was the vocal leader for his 16U squad, which was refreshing to see for such a young player. Very high ceiling for the Northeast product. He knows when to attack the defense and when to take the open jump shot, never forcing the issue.

Clashon Gaffney, 2017 PF, Mo Williams Academy: Expect the 6-foot-7 power forward to develop into one of the premier big men in the state of Texas over the next couple years. Blessed with soft hands and good touch around the rim, Gaffney is a solid finisher around the low block. He runs the floor very well for a big man and has good defensive instincts as well.

Jalek Felton, 2017 G, Team Felton: Long considered an elite guard in the 2017 class, Felton's progression is impressive. He is a skilled 6-foot-3 slasher who is very good when finishing around the rim. He has excellent body control and uses his toughness to his advantage on both ends of the floor. He is also capable of knocking down jump shots from distance. The total package for a combination guard.

Donovan Mitchell, 2015 SG, The City: The 6-foot-3 Brewster Academy (NH) wing continued his strong evaluation period play on Friday. Whether he was knocking down jump shots, streaking to the rim for aggressive finishes, or playing tenacious defense, he was the best player on the floor, and it wasn't close. Expect more offers to come pouring in for the strong shooting guard.

Davontavean Martin, 2017 SG, Swilling Storm: Now suiting up with the strong Swilling Storm program based out of New Orleans, the 6-foot-3 wing looked superb when attacking the basket Friday night. He is a strong and wiry guard who is always in attack mode, whether he is playing in the half-court or transition setting. He has continued to fly under the radar playing his school basketball in rural Louisiana, but that should soon change

Tobias Howard, 2015 PG, Stackhouse Elite: The 6-foot lead guard played an extremely impressive game on Friday afternoon, showing the ability to not only score the basketball on all three levels, but also showed his marketability as a floor general as well, finding teammates in good spots to score the basketball.
