Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- It's a huge week in middle school basketball, as both 7th & 8th Grade AAU Nationals take place across the country. First up was the 7th grade division for Future150 staff, and we started our journey in Greensboro, North Carolina to see which prospects are rising stars from across the country. Below are several of the standouts from the first day of action.

Gregg Glenn, 2022 F, Nightrydas Elite (FL): The 6'5" Miami prospect currently checks in as the #11 prospect nationally in his class, and he didn't disappoint during the opening day of nationals. In a blowout win, he showed his versatility on both ends. He's a prospect who can easily play multiple positions and does so effortlessly. We're excited to see what he cooks up on Wednesday during game action.

Asa White, 2022 SF, Team Wall (NC): Maybe the best prospect in the gym Tuesday, the 6'6" wing is a star in the making. Not only can he play multiple positions right now, but he looks like he's only just beginning to fill out physically. Even more impressive is the fact that he has a 2004 birthday, making him an even more appealing prospect long term. Look for him to continue to make waves this week.

Tyrese Elliott, 2022 PG, MC Warriors (AL): Already one of the most impressive point guard prospects in the Southeast, the 6-foot Huntsville, Alabama native is making a case as one of the elite point guards nationally. On Tuesday, he was impressive showing off his ability to finish around the rim using both hands, his ability to drive downhill & his intensity on the defensive end. Overall, a great start to his week. 

Jaden Bradley, 2022 PG, CP3 (NC): The #13 prospect in the nation according to our latest rankings, the 6'1" floor general makes the game look very easy, especially when he's attacking the rim. He's got good size for the position, and possesses excellent feel for the game. Once he starts to become more vocal on the floor, he's going to see his game go to another level. 

Paul McMillan IV, 2022 5'11" PG, All-Ohio Red (OH): Checking in at #23 in the latest Future150 class of 2022 rankings update, McMillan had a very nice showing in the morning games. His unique combination of strength, speed, and ball-handling skills at his age makes him an extremely tough cover. When he wasn't scoring and killing the defense with his slashing abilties, he was making beautiful passes in transition which led to plenty of easy buckets for his teammates. It's easy to see why McMillan is worthy of a top-25 ranking nationally. 

John Eason Jr., 2022 6'5" PF, Carolina Elite (NC): Eason played at Future150's Main Event Atlanta Tournament with the Georgia Fusion a few months back and emerged as one of the best middle schoo prospects in the entire tournament. On day one of 7th grade nationals the 6'5" post was putting in work on the offensive glass, running the floor well, and protecting the rim. As Eason continues to impress this summer, his growth and development over the next year or so will be crucial to his future. 

Nolan Ford, 2022 6'6" PF, Big Shots Elite (NC): Ford has had a major growth spurt recently which now gives him very good size in the paint at his age. He has a very soft touch around the rim and really disrupted opposing offenses with a majority of their game plan pushing towards slashing and driving to the rim. Ford still has a ways to go, but his recent growth and noticeable development is a very good sign for the Raleigh native. 

Jalen Applewhite, 2022 6'3" SF, B.T.B. Elite (NC): Even though Applewhite's squad struggled in a loss to All-Ohio in the early morning set of games, he still made a huge impression. His long, lanky frame at 6'3" gives him great size on the wing for a rising 8th grader. He was doing most of his damage in transition, grabbing rebounds and taking the ball the full 94-feet before finishing at the rim. A smooth playmaking wing, the future looks bright for Mr. Applewhite. 

Cameron Miller, 2022 6'1" CF, Memphis War Eagles (TN): Not having the elite size of most of the day one standouts, Miller impressed with his high motor and versatility on both ends of the floor. He was guarding multiple positions on the defensive end and thriving at multiple positions on offense. He showed that he was capable of knocking down the mid and long range jump shot, while also banging down low and showing off a few post moves. This weekend could definitely be a coming out party for the future Germantown star.
