Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- Day one of 7th and 8th grade AAU Nationals in Greensboro, NC had a ton of young talent on display. A pair of Indiana products shone the brightest on day one, along with plenty of other prospects, including some local talent. 

Jayden Davis2021 SG (Team Teague): Davis stands just under six foot, but really knows how to score over the top of taller opponents. His ball-handling and court vision was also on full display. His explosiveness and high energy combined with his natural skills could make up for a very solid D1 prospect in the future, assuming he continues to grow. 

Jermaine Woods2021 C (Team Teague): Already standing at around 6'5, Woods made sure he used his height to his strengths as he crashed the boards on both ends constantly. Woods displayed a very mature, high IQ style of play which is very rare in big men his age. Super impressive performance for Woods, and the future looks to be extremely bright. 

Tyler Rice2021 PG (Central Carolina Force): The Future150 alumni, Tyler Rice had his dominating floor general skills on display once again today. Rice has unbelievable court vision and awareness for a prospect his age. His scoring abilities continue to improve, and his explosive first step allows him to get to the rim with ease. 

Iniubong Ekpe2020 F/C (Dana Barros Basketball Club): Ekpe is a bit undersized for the four spot at his age, standing at just six feet tall. Ekpe still crashed the boards, and used his high motor to block shots and disrupt plenty of shots on defense. His ball-handling skills are very good and he was very capable of starting the fast break after coming down with a rebound. If he doesn't grow anymore, Ekpe definitely has the raw skills to try and convert to a wing. 

Jarius Northam2021 CG (Carolina Wolves): Northam was a menace on the defensive end and turned steals into easy layups for his team. He showed off good basketball IQ today, knowing when to take the ball inside and draw a foul. Northam is a very gritty, vocal guard that could have a very big future if he continues to stay in the gym and improve. 

Donald Bell2020 SF (Carolina Wolves): Bell was showing off his versatiliity during day one of nationals. He was doing a little bit of everything for the Wolves, and was a big part in their beatdown of Southern Stampede. If Bell can hit another growth spurt soon, and continue to get stronger, there is no doubt he could be playing college basketball somewhere. 

Moses Parker2020 C (U.B.E.): Parker has great strength for a rising freshman, and uses that to his advantage when muscling his way down low for easy buckets. His overall footwork was very impressive, and he also showed the ability to drive the ball from the high/mid-post area. Definitely some upside to Parker's game, and it should be interesting to see how he develops heading forward. 

Daveon Thomas2021 SG (Central Carolina Force): Thomas had a huge game against U.S. Hoops Elite pouring in 19 points and grabbing 9 boards as well. Thomas is a solid athlete and rebounder for his size, and the potential is certainly there for him to be a dynamic combo guard down the road. A lot of his skill sets are still raw at this point, and a lot of his game comes off of his extremely high motor. Thomas will be at the Future150 Elite24 camp in August, and we are looking forward to see him in action.
