Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- The final day of AAU Nationals saw San Diego Select run away with the 8th grade championship, and also saw Kansas Pray and Play finish the weekend with a big win over AET Elite. It is safe to say that the players from the West Coast/Midwest had a nice final day in Greensboro. Check out which products showed out on the final day of action.

Chibuzo Agbo2020 PF (San Diego Select): Agbo and his squad finished off the week in dominating fashion by blowing by Expressions Elite 85-48 in the championship game. Select is a loaded squad, but Agbo definitely impressed the most throughout the week. The 6'6" four man dominated near the rim on both ends of the floor. His rebounding and ability to run the floor was what gave him the look of a dominant player this week. 

Steven Alexander2021 CG (AET Elite): Even though his squad dropped their final game of the week to Kansas Pray and Play, Alexander continued to show off his elite shooting and scoring abilities. At one point, the Oklahoma native scored 11 straight points for his team, 9 of those coming from three ball's that were way beyond the line. As Alexander continues to add strength and fills out his defense more, he will definitely be one to watch in the 2021 class in Oklahoma. 

Jaylon McDaniel2021 PF (Kansas Pray And Play): McDaniel, at 6'4", has very nice footwork in the post and knows how to use his length to dominate the glass. The potential is certainly there for McDaniel to be a dominant post presence in the future, but he needs to continue to work on his finishing around the rim, and obviously continue to add strength to his frame. 

Daylan Jones2021 PG (Kansas Pray And Play): Jones has fantastic size for a lead guard his age at 6'2". He showed off his abilities to score from all three levels and has a very fundamental jump shot. He dominates opposing guards on the glass and can score the ball over the top of the defense at will. He wasn't quite as polished as other top-notch PG's this week, but he has the intangibles to be an elite player one day. 

Carson McCorkle2020 SG (Garner Road): McCorkle is just a flat out ball player. He can score from all three levels, and already has solid size for a two guard at 6'2" and 165 pounds. The most impressive part of McCorkle's performance on Saturday was his willingness to defend and his vocal leadership when he was on the floor. Don't be surprised if you're hearing his name among the top prospects in North Carolina in a few years. 

Myles Evans2020 PF (Garner Road): Evans is another prospect from this week that has elite size and length for his age. At 6'7", he is very tough to keep off the glass and if he gets the ball near the rim, there's a good chance it's going in. His frame looks a bit slim, but he is actually quite efficient when going to the basket while fighting through contact. Starting his high school career at Ravenscroft (NC) next season, he is only going to keep getting better. 

Raje Knight2020 WG (Team Wall): Knight looks to be a positionless player at this point, but the good news is that doesn't really matter. His slim, lengthy frame helps him slither into the lane and finish over the top of the defense. His jumper isn't the best looking, but he can get it to go in from about anywhere if given enough space. His development heading forward will be interesting to watch.
