Quick Take: One of the most physical prospects in high school basketball, Alexander put together a heck of a weekend in Hampton. With Jahlil Okafor out, Alexander took full advantage of his extra minutes and free range in the paint. He went for 17 points and 15.6 rebounds in his five games in Hampton. He owned the glass, looked to dunk everything inside and used his superior athleticism to dominate the competition.

Quick Take: With Coach K, John Calipari and Tom Izzo watching his every move in Hampton, Jones looked every bit worthy of the No. 1 point guard ranking. His feel for the game and decision-making is as good as it gets for a high school prospect. In five games this past weekend, Jones tossed out 37 assists and turned it over just 11. On Howard Pulley, Jones is relied on to score and he went for 23.8 points a game. He gets where he wants on the court, proved he could finish through contact at the rim and has turned into a reliable long-range threat.

Quick Take: An elite level prospect, Mudiay certainly had his full talent on display on Hampton. The now 6-foot-4 point guard is physically and athletically gifted. At his size, he's able to slice his way into the paint when he wants and he's turned into a very good finisher at the rim. He also has tremendous vision and is especially a great playmaker in transition. He went for 18.6 points and 5.6 assists per game in Hampton.

Quick Take: During his final game in Hampton, Lyle played an inspired brand of ball. He was physical, didn't back down from a challenge and turned up his scoring out put. Lyle showed off a post game and played well through physical play. At 6-foot-5, Lyle is versatile and you can use him in a variety of ways. He's skilled, has great vision and is a good scorer going towards the rim. He scored 15.4 points and grabbed 6.4 rebounds a game in Hampton.

Quick Take: Diallo emerged as a high level prospect during his sophomore season, but he still somewhat surprised us with the way he dominated the game against the Oakland Soldiers, who feature top three recruit Ivan Rabb. Diallo played physical and went right at the five-star prospect. He's active blocking shots and is one of the better rebounders in high school basketball. On top of all that, he scored it better than I realized. He has a right jump hook and decent touch inside. He went for 15.4 points and 13 rebounds through Team Scan's five games in Hampton.

Quick Take: The North Carolina commit had a heck of a weekend. He shot 60-percent from the field on 58 shot attempts in his five games in Hampton. Jackson has the best floater in high school hoops and proved he can score the ball in a variety of ways. His mid-range game is obviously advanced, but he's also a good long-range shooter and a very good passer. He went for 17 points a game in Hampton.

Recruiting: Committed to North Carolina
