Cartersville, GA (Future150) -- Day three of the UAA Finals saw a lot of 17U prospects steal the show with dominant performances. Check out the standouts below: 

Bradley Belt, 2017 CG (Alabama Celtics): Belt put on a scoring clinic today against WeR1-Cloverdale. His jumper couldn’t be stopped and there was a point where he scored nine straight points for his squad. He is built like a running back, and doesn’t shy away from contact at all. Belt could emerge into a low major prospect if he continues to stay in the gym and develop.

Anthony Mack, 2017 G/F (South Jersey Jazz): Mack played well during a tough loss against KC Run and had his versatility on full display. At 6’5” and vastly improved handles, Mack can realistically play the one through three spots at this point. He was bringing the ball up and finding his teammates for easy buckets today. Memphis extended an offer to Mack on Friday.

Raiquan Gray, 2017 CF (Florida Vipers): One of the most impressive performances on the day, Gray took over down the stretch against DC Premier. Gray has the size and strength to muscle his way down low and get some easy buckets, but what is really impressive is his perimeter skills and ability to knock down the three ball of the bounce or catch. His offer list is loaded with schools and it’s safe to say he will be playing college basketball at a high major school next October.

Kobe McClain, 2017 PF (Alabama Celtics): McClain really made his presence felt on defense during day three of the UAA Finals. He was pinning shots against the glass and making sure any guards that got into the lane did not get an easy look. McClain is a solid player on both ends of the floor that plays with a ton of energy.

Devon Dotson, 2018 PG (Team Charlotte): Even though Dotson and his squad took a heartbreaking loss to Splash City in the semifinals, he had a huge performance in front of coaches from California, Temple, USC, Wake, and head coach Roy Williams of UNC. He has gotten much more consistent on his three point jump shot and his court vision and finishing skills are nothing short of elite. Dotson has proved that he belongs among the top-tier when talking about 2018 floor generals.

Tre Duval, 2017 PG (WeR1): Duval has shown why we have him ranked as a top five prospect in the nation over the course of this week. There hasn’t been one defender that has been able to stay in front of him and stop him from driving into the lane. His athleticism and defense was on full display in WeR1’s semifinal win over Team Felton. Duval is without a doubt, still the best PG in the country.

Kam Langley, 2017 CG (Team Felton): Going up against a backcourt of Trevon Duval and Eric Ayala is no easy task, but Langley managed to hold his own and get to the basket. He is a great rebounder for his size and was getting to the line often throughout the entire game. He currently holds offers from Denver, Kennesaw State, Marshall, Maryland-Eastern Shore, and North Carolina A&T. Expect his offer list to keep growing with the level he’s been playing at recently.

Rongie Gordon, 2020 PF (Atlanta Xpress): The rising freshman Gordon, has solid size at 6’6” and a lengthy wingspan which allowed him to control the boards on both ends of the floor. His finishing abilities inside could use a little more work and consistency but he certainly isn’t one to shy away from contact. Xpress may have another stud in the frontcourt with this young bull if he continues to grow and improve. 

Zach Scott2018 PG (Florida Vipers): Scott impressed the Future150 staff in Brooklyn during the first session of the Under Armour Circuit. Not many things have changed as Scott continues to prove his worth as a vocal leader on the floor that can score from all three levels. His quick release on his jumper is extremely difficult to defend, and it's only a matter of time before more high major offers start rolling in.
