Top basketball targets play in the elite Under Armour event Saturday night

The 2016 recruiting class is coming together, and is currently ranked No. 2 nationally. And there are rumors that it is going to get stronger.

With the perimeter guys locked up, the staff has now turned its attention on the post players. The two top targets play tonight in Under Armour's Elite 24 event, which will be broadcast on ESPNU.

5* power forward Dewan Huell, and 5* center Udoka Azubuike will appear on opposing squads. Huell, at 6-10, is a bouncy, active presence who is best in transition and on secondary breaks. His half court game is a work in progress, but his combination of size, athleticism, and motor have moved him into the 5* ranks.

7-foot Udoka Azubuike is a powerhouse inside. He bullies people, and tries to dunk everything. HIs conditioning has come a long way, but still needs to improve. And he's just now beginning to develop post moves.

Both players would make an immediate impact, and if FSU somehow lands the two of them, the Noles will be guaranteed a top 5 class.

The game tips tonight at 7pm on ESPNU.
