Quick Take: Coming into July not a ton of people knew about Vasturia, but he has seen his stock soar with his play. A very smart player with a good ability to shoot the ball, Vasturia is more than just one-dimensional on offense. He is also a solid athlete and someone who really knows how to pass the ball. Now high-major schools are really taking a close look at him.

Size: 7-8/235 |
Quick Take:A big body with a lot of athleticism who plays hard, Scott really impressed at times this summer. He wasn't tracked by a ton of high-majors for the majority of the month, but in Orlando he put on some impressive displays. His skill game can use some work, but his strength and athleticism make him standout.

Recruiting: Mississippi State, Georgia, Jackson State

Size: 6-1/165 |
Quick Take: Balentine led his high school team to a championship game appearance, but saved his best for the second part of July on the AAU circuit. He was absolutely on fire from three point range all month long, and really opened up eyes in the process. Someone with a good understanding for how to play, Balentine was very impressive.

Recruiting: Missouri State, Wright State, Indiana State, Loyola, Kent State, Evansville

Size: 7-8/250 |
Quick Take:A massive center with great hands who can really run the floor, Woodson wasn't on many people's radar before the AAU Nationals in Orlando. The class of 2013 center has a good touch out to the mid-range, and is strong enough to be a major factor on defense. He needs to develop more back to the basket moves, but Woodson definitely impressed with his play.

Recruiting: Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa, TCU, Connecticut, Vanderbilt, UTEP

Size: 6-2/170 |
Quick Take: Trent didn't play a ton for his high school team, but the talent was on full display in July. In Orlando he proved to be a big time shooter who also has the ability to get to the rim. An athletic kid, Trent is tough to contain and showed that he might be one of the better secrets in the state of Virginia.

Recruiting: Drake, VCU, William & Mary

Size: 6-5/180 |
Quick Take: The 16 and under Team Takeover squad is loaded with high level guards, but Hart managed to find a way to standout with his play. He is a big time scorer, especially going to the rim, and showed it. Also his shot making on the outside is improving. Hart had an excellent July, and coaches seemed to be growing in numbers as the month went on at his games.
