Houston, TX (Future150) -- The Future150 camp series continued this past weekend in Houston, Texas, where we conducted our underclassmen camp for middle school prospects. Several big name prospects came out to get some run and ink, while new names also burst onto the scene. Below are our all-star selections from the weekend.

Chris Felix, 2021 SG, Fresno, Texas: One of the best young prospects in the country, the 6'1" wing continues to develop on both ends of the floor. Because of his length and athleticism, he's an excellent slasher and rebounder with evolving perimeter shooting ability. On the defensive end, he gets into passing lanes and blocks a lot of shots. Expect him to continue to sprout and develop as he projects as one of the best talents in the state of Texas.

Bryce Griggs, 2022 PG, Houston, Texas: When talking about the elite prospects nationally right now in the class of 2022, the conversation in the backcourt has to start with the 5'10" lead guard. Possessing incredible ball skills & uncanny court vision, he was putting in work against prospects one and two years older than him. It's easy to be excited about the player he can become in the next few years if he keeps working on his game. Right now, he sits in the top tier of guards of his class in the entire country.

Wade Taylor, 2021 PG, Duncanville, Texas: An electric 5'8" lead guard, he exploded at the camp. He was the highest scorer from this past weekend, and was able to get baskets any way he wanted to. Whether he was knocking down three-point shots, mid-range jump shots, or using his quickness to get to the basket, he could not be stopped. It's impressive how much better he's gotten over the past year.

David Martinez, 2021 PG, Humble, Texas: The breakout star of the camp was the 5''9" jet. His open floor speed is impressive, as are his passing skills and court vision. His hesitation dribble had him blowing by defenders all weekend long, and his jump shot was consistent enough to keep defenders honest. Expect a huge 8th grade year from the lead guard.

P.J. Neal, 2021 PG, Houston, Texas: Already standing 6'2" with ability to play both guard positions, the Houston product is an intriguing prospect to track. He shows lead guard skills such as his court vision and feel for the game. As he continues to develop his right hand and hone his perimeter jump shot, he will be a dangerous player. Right now, he projects as a top-tier talent in the South.

Kaleb Stewart, 2021 SG, Humble, Texas: A smooth and skilled 5'9" combo guard, he proved his worth as not only a high-volume shooter, but as a high-volume scorer as well. However, he's not only a valuable offensive weapon. He's also proven that he can be a set-up man who gets his teammates open looks as well. The next step in his development will be to work on his court vision.

Kevonte Hurts, 2019 SG, Lufkin, Texas: The explosive wing was everywhere at the camp. He played with an extremely high motor, making him effective as not only a rebounder, but as a scorer around the rim. He showed an ability to score on all three levels, and also stood out as an impressive on-ball defender too.

Daniel Dew, 2020 PG, Jackson, Mississippi: A profilic shooter and a lead guard with wiggle in his game, the 5'11" prospect shot the ball at an extremely high level in Houston. He's capable of knocking down shots off the catch, as well as being a set-up man for his teammates due to his quickness when working off-the-dribble. Over the past few years, he's continually improved his game.

Johnathan Massie, 2021 PG, Humble, Texas: One of the best point guards at the camp, the 5'7" prospect showed that despite his size, his skill level allowed him to excel as both a scorer and facilitator. He's crafty when attacking the rim, knowing exactly how to get his shots off over bigger defenders. He also showed that he gets to the foul-line with regularly & can knock down perimeter shots.

Will Harris, 2020 CG, Houston, Texas: The 5'7" combo guard really showcased his scoring abilities and open floor speed at the camp. He's a capable finisher using both hands and also excels as a slasher in the halfcourt setting. On the defensive end, he takes pride in his on-ball defense and understands how to run the point guard position effectively.

JaCory Chatman, 2022 CG, Fresno, Texas: Although he was one of the youngest campers in attendance, the 5'4" combo guard showed an advanced skill set with ability to play both perimeter positions. He wasn't afraid to play physical basketball on both ends of the floor. Right now, he's most effective as a slasher on offense.

Kobe Haynes, 2021 CG, Houston, Texas: The 5'3" combo guard is a fearless attacker on the offensive end. Because of his size and dribbling skills, he's able to operate in tight spaces in order to avoid defensive pressure, especially double-teams. He also showed that when left open, he can knock down perimeter shots regularly. 

Carter Domingue, 2021 SG, Lafayette, Louisiana: A natural scorer at 5'10", Domingue showed that he can not only knock down shots from mid-range and three-point range, but that he can score when slashing to the rim as well. Already possessing a good frame at a young age, he has considerable upside as a two-way producer at the high school level.

Kalep Crane, 2020 CG, Broussard, Louisiana: Arguably the best mid-range shooter in the camp was the 5'9" combo guard prospect from Louisiana. He was impressive as a high-volume scorer because of his shooting ability. He has adequate ball skills at this stage in his development and showed that he can run a team as well as being relied upon to be a primary scorer as well.

Antonio Evans, 2020 CG, Conroe, Texas: One of the best slashers in the camp was the 6'0" combo guard. He's a strong high-volume scorer who loved attacking when going downhill. He plays with emotion and proved to be a team leader as well. While his perimeter shot needs work, he did knock down several shots throughout the camp. 

Ethan Delafose, 2020 PF, Tomball, Texas: Blessed with good size at 6'5", 160-pounds, he used his frame to dominate the glass at camp. He's a high-motor prospect with considerable upside. While his low post moves need work, he has good feet & is a standout defender as well. He's also an extremely coachable prospect who should flourish in the next few years.

Brandon Nelson, 2020 PF, Spring, Texas: A prospect who recently started playing the game, there's significant upside for the 6'7" power forward. Long and athletic, he's just beginning to blossom. A high-motor prospect who rebounds and blocks shots at a high rate, there will be significant offensive improvement in due time. Don't be surprised to see him really take off in the next two years.

Jordan Tillmon, 2020 SG, South Grand Prairie, Texas: Making the trip down from Dallas, it was well worth it after the 5'9" shooting guard made the all-star game. A crafty dribbler with ball skills and a burst of quickness that allows him to get to the basket at will, he showed that he's a high-volume scorer. Right now, he's strongest as a slasher.

Jason Garcia, 2020 PG, Houston, Texas: One of the best shooters in the camp, the 5'8" floor general was lights-out from beyond the arc this past weekend. Not only does he have solid ball skills and passing ability, but his scoring prowess makes him very hard to guard. One thing we liked about him was that he kept his turnovers down for the duration of the camp.

Darrin Everage Jr., 2020 SF, McAllen, Texas: A strong and skilled 6'2" small forward, the wing showed out at camp by being a dominant slasher who used his strength and finesse to finish around the rim. He was effective when crashing the glass on both ends and even showed that he can knock down shots from the perimeter as well.

Antario Bollin, 2020 CF, Ennis, Texas: The 6-footer used his athleticism to his advantage in the camp setting, scoring on a plethora of transition and put-back opportunities. He rebounds well on the defensive end of the floor, showed that he can score on penetration & even knocked down a few jump shots from mid-range as well.

Jared Viesca, 2021 C, Cyrpess, Texas: The 6'4" post is a developing big man who is already blessed with good size for a big man. He runs the floor well, rebounds it well on both ends, and plays with a high motor. The next step in his development will be for him to continue to work on his post moves.

Jalen Bates, 2020 PG, Houston, Texas: One of the better playmakers in the camp, the 5'6" lead guard stood out as a pass-first point guard with good feel and instincts on the floor. He loves to get out in transition and operated well in tight spaces on offense. While we didn't keep stats at the camp, he was easily one of the assist leaders.

Elias Hunt, 2020 PF, Magnolia, Texas: A high-motored post, the 6'4" big man showed good ability when rebounding the ball on both ends. He also showed that he is a physical on-ball defender with good shot-blocking instincts. While he still has to work on his perimeter skills, he showed that he can step out and knock down shots all the way out to the three-point line.
