Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- Big men have been on full display during days two and three of AAU Nationals in Greensboro, North Carolina. There were also a few guards and wings that also made impressions. Check out who's been showing out below: 

Jabri Abdur-Rahim2020 CF (Play Hard Play Smart Elite): Abdur-Rahim had his ultimate versatility on full display during day three of nationals. The 6'6 combo forward was scoring at will around the rim and slashing the lane with ease. He ceratinly proved why he's already picked up a high-major offer before even starting the ninth grade. Big things to come for Jabri, who is easily a top ten player in his class. 

Qualeem Charles2020 C (BABC): Charles is a bully down low. With his good size (6'3, 250), he can handle just about any one-on- one matchup in the post. What was most impressive about Charles was his high motor and good court vision. Charles will start his high school career at Attleboro (MA) next season and should slowly see his name emerge onto the national radar. 

Matthew Cross2020 CF (BABC): One of the most impressive performances of day three came from Cross. He was doing everything well and wouldn't let any of his opponents come away with a clean look on offense. At 6'6", Cross has a nice skill set and really knows how to create space for himself on offense. He had some pretty post moves in his arsenal, and looks poised to be a very productive four man as he continues to grow. 

Jaylahn Tuimoloau2021 PF (Seattle Select Warriors): Tuimoloau was among the standouts during day one, but he was back at it during day three. The high-intensity post man was being a vocal leader on defense, and controlling the boards as usual. He pulled out a few post moves that worked extremely well, and was once again a bright spot on a loaded team. 

Johnny Ransom2021 C (Wellington Wolves): The 6'4" rising 8th grader, Johnny Ransom, protected the rim quite thoroughly during day three of nationals. He lived on the offensive glass and scored plenty of putback buckets along with the whistle. Ransom has some real potential as an elite defender and post presence. The Florida native is definitely a name that should be hovering on the national radar. 

Anthony Sayles2021 CG (All-In Athletics): One of the best defenders Future150 has seen so far this week, Sayles was a smothering defender that rarely let his opponent get by him. He was quick on his feet and slashed the lane with ease. He very rarely saw time on the bench, as he has been a very vital piece to his team this week. 

William Anthony McClendon2020 PG (Play Hard Play Smart Elite): McClendon already has decent size for a point guard at such a young age (6'0, 155). His handles and court vision were on full display as he set up plenty of easy buckets for his teammates. He was very secure and smart with the ball in his hands. McClendon certainly has the early look of a potential D1 point guard. 

Evan Joyner2020 SF (Greensboro Warriors): Even though his squad had a tough matchup with BABC, Joyner still produced. Joyner is one of those players that doesn't have to score just to have a postive affect on his team. He was playing very well without the ball in his hands on offense, as he was very willing to set screens and do whatever to get his teammates open. He rebounded the ball well and tried his hardest to do whatever was best for his squad.
