During our three days in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas a number of prospects had impressive outings. But who were the biggest standouts at the D.C. Classic and National Hoops Festival?

Quick Take: The North Carolina State signee was arguably the top performer of the weekend. Oak Hill needed Lewis to step up on the offensive end and he did just that. When the Warriors needed points, he scored them. When they needed him to create opportunities for his teammates, he did that as well. Lewis' move to Oak Hill appears to be paying off. He's playing with confidence and is the anchor for Steve Smith's squad.
Committed: North Carolina State

Quick Take: North Carolina's future lead guard led his squad to the Gonzaga D.C. Classic this past weekend. In front of a packed gym on Friday he brought his "A" game. His 30 points were impressive, but it was how he went about scoring them that really stood out. Britt can create and is a talented passer, but Gonzaga needs his points and the confidence he's gained in his jump shot is downright scary. He nailed four threes, but also hit mid-range pull-ups and got to the tin in the opening round game.

Quick Take: The best senior shot blocker in the country – Chris Obepka -- also happens to be one of the best unsigned prospects. So coaches were out in full force to see the 6-foot-9 athletic specimen on Sunday at the National Hoops Festival and Obekpa did not disappoint. His triple of 16 points, 14 rebounds and 12 blocks was a dominant performance. His athleticism is top notch and he's incredibly quick off the ground. From a defensive standpoint, Obepka is a dominant player.
Recruiting: Kentucky, Connecticut, Cincinnati, St. John's, Providence, Seton Hall, DePaul, Georgia Tech, Texas, Florida, Maryland and West Virginia

Quick Take: Over the course of the National Hoops Festival, Savage, a 6-foot-2 guard, was as consistent as any participant. Savage spent time playing on and off the ball and found ways to be effective in both positions. He has impressive leaping ability and had the play of the weekend when he attacked from the wing and threw down a ferocious slam. Savage plays to his strengths and made big plays for Episcopal in both games they played in the event.

Quick Take: Shaka Smart stole one. Jordan Burgess, a 6-foot-5 strongly built wing prospect, put together a double-double of 13 points and 13 rebounds in his only game in the National Hoops Festival. His activity level on the glass is high, he defends his position well and he's developed his offensive ability. His jump shot off the catch has improved and is also a capable driver. This is a high major prospect and a guy that will tear up the CAA.
