Nashville, TN (Future150) -- In terms of post prospects in the middle school ranks, you won't find many as big as 6-foot-9 Mississippi power forward/center Omar Kietaour #3 ranked prospect in the 2018 class.

The shot-blocking post prospect runs the floor extremely well for a big man and finishes well around the rim. He also plays with a high motor and is a solid low post passer. The youngster is worth tracking going forward, and you will find him playing this season at the Cordia School in Kentucky.

Another prospect who climbed considerably in our latest rankings is Louisiana guard Javonte Smart, checking in at #20 in the class.

The 6-foot-1 Baton Rouge native is a smooth combo guard who has excellent vision on the floor. He also has advanced court vision for a prospect his age. 

Here are the latest top five prospects in the country, according to Future150...

1. Marvin Bagley - The 6'8" forward continues to grow, and his game is doing the same. A smooth swingman in the mold of Michael Beasley.

2. E.J. Montgomery - Another long and smooth lefty, E.J. is developing his guard skills, which is scary for the opposition.

3. Omar Kieta - The 6'9" post is a shot-blocker with excellent timing and instincts. He finishes well around the rim and rebounds everything in his area.

4. James Lewis - The 6'1" combo guard has been playing with older competition for years, and it's paying off. High volume scorer with solid lead guard skills. 

5. Ladarius Marshall - The most explosive athlete in the class. The 6'4" wing is a highlight waiting to happen on the offensive end of the floor.
