Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- The second day of 7th Grade AAU Nationals gave us many more highly contested pool-play matchups, as teams were jockeying for bracket play positions. Several new prospects emerged, while a few household names cemented their status. 

Reggie Bass Shows 5-Star Worth

When the latest Future150 Class of 2022 National Rankings dropped this week, Indiana prospect Reggie Bass landed at #44 in the country as a 4-star prospect. Well, after seeing him this week at AAU Nationals, he proved that ranking to be way too low. In a huge game against a powerful Hilltopper Heat team, he put on a show, leading his team to a big win in pool play. His offensive game is something to behold, as the 6'2" shooting guard is one of the most polished prospects nationwide. Expect a huge jump for him when the next rankings update occurs in August.

Florida Point Guard Dominating Pool Play

Team Florida Prospects (FL) came into AAU Nationals as one of the relative unknowns, but after two days of action, they sit at 3-0 in their pool and are one of the pleasant surprises of the event. Led by Demari Henderson, they've taken down both RM5 & Team United thus far, and they don't seem content. The star of his team, he's a long and springy 5'10" point who can get to the rim at will. On defense, he's been one of the most fierce on-ball defenders we've seen, and has created quite a stir so far.

Jumbo Guard Hood-Schifino Impressing

Team Charlotte (NC) 2022 G Jalen Hood-Schifino has been very good so far in pool play, impressing us with his production as well as his projection for the future. Already standing in the 6'2" range with a thick frame, he's deceptively quick and very skilled. The Pittsburgh native moved to Charlotte last year, and looks to be one of the premier prospects in the Southeast in what looks to be a loaded 2022 class nationally.

3 More Standouts From 7th Grade AAU Nationals

Devantes Cobbs, 2022 SF, Wisconsin United (WI): The most explosive athlete we've encountered so far at AAU Nationals is the 6'2" wing. He plays every position on the floor for his team, and has proven to be one of the hardest working players in the event. Once his skills begin to blossom, he's going to be an absolute problem.

Justice Williams, 2022 PG, Hilltopper Heat (NJ): The long and lanky 6'2" point guard had his offensive game on full display Wednesday evening, as his mid-range game was firing on all cylinders. He's able to get to the rim at will, and uses his length to disrupt passing lanes on the defensive end. 

Jordan Brewer, 2022 PF, Atlanta Celtics (GA): There has been a fair share of long term prospects that have caught our eye in Greensboro, and the 6'4" lefty has as much potential as anyone in the group. He's extremely active around the rim on the defensive end, blocking and disrupting multiple shots per game. While his offensive game is a work in progress, we know his offensive skills will catch up relatively soon.
