Top Performers: Best Buy

A number of prospects had big showings at the Chicago Best Buy Tournament, but none stood out more than Danuel House. The 6-foot-6 guard is one of the Top Performers from the weekend.

Size: 7-6/175 |
Quick Take: We had heard the rumblings, but didn't expect House to be this good. In fact, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard projects at the very least as top 40ish type prospect. He's an athletic guard that can score in a variety of ways. His jump shot is a weapon and he's pure from mid to long range. He was the top performer of the weekend.

Recruiting: Colorado, Baylor, TCU, Houston, Richmond, Vanderbilt, Louisville, South Carolina, Texas, Maryland, Florida State and Mississippi State

Quick Take: Although a quite unassuming kid, when Ridley hits the floor his game speaks volumes. The 6-foot-11 big man owns his area rebounding wise and uses his extreme length to affect and block shots. Offensively he has a great set of hands and can score through contact or with a soft jump hook over his left shoulder. His game is still developing and even as the nation's No. 6 prospect he's just scratching the surface of his future potential.

Recruiting: Committed to Texas

Size: 7-8/190 |
Quick Take: When in run and jump situations, Perea is at his best. And throughout the weekend, he was able to get out in transition, slam home tips and swat shots. On top of that he went to the glass as well as we've seen him. He played with energy and brought it every time he hit the floor at the Best Buy event.

Recruiting: Committed to Indiana

Size: 6-0/180 |
Quick Take: The future Hoosier put together a strong weekend for Indiana Elite. He was a big part of them making it to the championship game and specifically had his mid-range game working all weekend. His pull-up jumper off the bounce is arguably his best weapon, but he'll mix in threes as well. We love how intense he is on the court and he's not afraid to lock up on the defensive end.

Size: 6-2/200 |
Quick Take: He dropped 31 points in one of the Swings first games and he continued his strong play throughout the weekend. A tough customer, Showalter doesn't back down from the competition and he plays with some serious intensity on both ends. He's a combo guard that shoots it well and will mix in drives to the basket.

Recruiting: Creighton, Drake, Marquette, Miami-Ohio, Northern Iowa, Toledo, North Dakota State, South Dakota State

Size: 6-4/170 |
Quick Take: Although we only go to see him once this weekend, Curington was certainly at his best. The 6-foot-4 guard scored at will during an 8 a.m. game, scoring 30 plus points for CIA Bounce. He hit a number of three-pointers and mixed in strong drives to the rim and finishes in transition. He appears to be improving and that's exactly what we are looking for in a 2013 prospect.

Recruiting: Wake Forest, Purdue, Virginia, Northwestern, Indiana, North Carolina and Maryland.

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: Late Saturday, Lee went for 46 in an elimination tournament game. The next morning he gave Texas Pro his best effort. He caused them fits when he attacked the basket and was a scoring machine at times. He's quick, has a developed mid-range jump shot and is a lead guard on the rise.

Recruiting: UCF, Baylor, Iowa State, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Marquette.
