Breakouts: 2nd Session, Part A

A number of prospects broke out in July. Who stood taller than the rest?

Size: 7-10/215 |
Quick Take: His name was gaining steam after the first evaluation period and then he put together a strong effort in Orlando at the AAU Nationals. At 6-foot-10, Nnoko is quite mobile and moves just as well sliding side to side as he does running up and down the floor. Defensively he affects the game with his length, athleticism and timing. Offensively he's better than given credit for and has developed a mid-range jump shot that defenders must respect.

Recruiting: Florida, Louisville, Central Florida, Clemon, Georgetown, Florida Atlantic

Size: 6-0/175 |
Quick Take: The point guard for the Arkansas Wings handled the role with poise throughout July. In Orlando with coaches looking on, Watkins set up his teammates, pushed the tempo and locked up on defense. He's an emerging lead guard in the 2013 class and one that high majors will start paying more and more attention to.

Recruiting: Arkansas, Missouri State, Arkansas Little-Rock

Size: 7-8/200 |
Quick Take: It started at the Nike Peach Jam and his strong play continued in Orlando. At 6-foot-8, possibly 6-9, Portis is a power forward with good size, length and mobility. He has some tools on the offensive end and showed a handful of scoring moves. On top of that he plays hard and with energy on not only offense, but on defense as well. He's a future top 100 player and a guy that should see his recruitment pick up as he heads into his season.

Recruiting: Arkansas, Baylor, Florida, Nebraska, Memphis and Kansas

Size: 6-3/219 |
Quick Take: Playing with Expression Elite at AAU Nationals, Terrell caught my eye with his ability to score. Not only did he get buckets attacking the basket, but also showed a consistent shot out to 21-feet. On a team with at least eight or nine Division-1 players, Terrell was the biggest standout and the guy his team counted on for points when they needed them. He's one to keep an eye on in the 2014 class.

Recruiting: Boston College, Temple, Cincinnati, Rutgers and Tennessee

Size: 7-8/220 |
Quick Take: The talented big man out of Visalia (Calif.) Central Valley Christian proved to be an effort guy that makes his mark by attacking the glass with consistency. In the two games I caught of him in Las Vegas, Verhoeven brought energy, showed good touch close to the rim and was active on the defensive end. Verhoeven is a legit high major prospect.

Recruiting: St. Mary's, California, Stanford

Size: 7-10/230 |
Quick Take: After the Hoop Group Elite camp, McCullough had analysts and coaches buzzing. So in Las Vegas the 6-foot-8 power forward was a priority to see and he certainly didn't disappoint. He's a lengthy face up four-man that runs the floor with ease. Athletically he's gifted and he did some things in the open court that you don't see from guys his size or age. He appears to be an elite level prospect in 2014.

Recruiting: St. John's, Rutgers, Iowa State, Connecticut, Syracuse and Pittsburgh

Size: 6-5/185 |
Quick Take: The son of the all-time leading scorer at Virginia is a terrific looking prospect in his own right. Playing on a talent filled Team Loaded squad, Stith, a 6-foot-4 wing prospect, stood out because of his ability to score, plus his athleticism and length. His shot looks good from long range and he also made plays going towards the rim. He's one of the better wing prospects in the 2014 class.

Recruiting: Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State and Providence

Size: 7-7/220 |
Quick Take: Running with Utah Pump N' Run, Loveridge, a combo forward, was able to provide production both from the perimeter and in the paint. He's slightly undersized for a low post guy, but he makes up for it with his strength and energy. He has range on his jump shot to 21-feet and can score through contact when he attacks the rim. Loveridge is a guy that made an impression on scouts and coaches throughout his teams Super 64 run to the semi-finals.

Recruiting: Colorado State, Weber State, Utah, BYU, Utah State, Hawaii, Nebraska, San Diego, Denver, UNLV, UC Riverside, UC Davis and San Francisco
