Ana Anzola2028 5-6 G Ana Anzola – Redline – North Forsyth
North Forsyth’s potential missing piece will make an immediate impact Day 1 at the varsity level. Ana’s well-rounded offensive game keeps defenses off balance. The lefty is strong with the ball and has a frame that can absorb contact when getting to the basket. Anzola is crafty with the ball, able to implement spin moves to get downhill and finish with both hands. Her three-point shooting busts open defenses, able to pull-up from deep or score off the catch from the corners. Through five games, Anzola averaged 14.2 points per game as Redline played up and captured the JV Division Championship, holding off Explosive Elites 48-41 in the title game. Ana netted a game-high 16 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 steals and 1 block. Anzola has a chance to develop into a D-I guard.

Calleigh Salvador2028 5-4 PG Calleigh Salvador – Redline – South Forsyth
Calleigh is the engine that makes Redline go. She balances her scoring with her creating very well, often a table setter for her teammates but still able to attack when needed. Calleigh is at her best when attacking the basket. She uses her quick first step to put pressure on defenders and does a good job drawing fouls. In the championship, Salvador went 5-6 from the foul line. Once she gets the defense on their heels as they back up to stop penetration, Calleigh utilizes a sharp pull-up jumper, able to stop on a dime to score from the mid-range. Salvador sank three pull-ups en route to finishing with 11 points and 1 assist against Explosive Elites. Calleigh’s presence on defense can’t go unnoticed. She does a very good job of sliding her feet, using her lateral quickness to stay in front of ball handlers with out having to hand check. The high IQ point guard also understand time and score and will not try to pad her stats when the best decision for the team is to milk the clock.

Leah Bryan
2028 5-10 W Leah Bryan – Redline – North Forsyth
Leah looks a little bit taller from when I last saw her at the Sandy’s Spiel Fall League. Now closer to 5-foot-10, the long-armed swingman looks like a future difference maker as a 3&D stalwart. Bryan affects games with her length on defense able to block shots inside and guard multiple positions on the perimeter. Offensively, once she sees a shot fall, she can get hot quickly. The southpaw opens up the floor with her three-point shooting, nailing three long balls in the championship game as she finished with 11 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Leah is a toolsy X-Factor that can elevate her team’s ceiling when she’s locked in.

Ella Casing
2027 5-0 PG Ella Casing – Explosive Elites – Sequoyah
I love how Ella Casing plays. Even though she is often one of the smallest players on the floor, she usually is one of the most important. Ella is a floor general. She has the ball on a string and has exceptional vision. Casing is adept at feeding the post and is a skilled pocket passer, always finding ways to squeeze in assists through traffic to her posts on the block with tight bounce passes that split the defense. Ella is a threat to score when she calls her own number, a dangerous three-point shooter off the catch that can also pull-up from distance. Even at her size, Casing is still an effective driver that can slither through the defense and finish with both hands amongst the trees. In Explosive Elites’ 48-41 loss to Redline in the JV Division Championship, Casing tallied 13 points, 3 assists and 1 steal, sparking a second half comeback after trailing by 12 at the break.

Jace Sanderson
2027 5-9 SG Jace Sanderson – Explosive Elites – Gilmer
Transferring from Fannin County to Gilmer this offseason, Jace Sanderson will play a big role for the Bobcats. The sophomore is enjoying a breakout spring which began with her play at the Sandy’s Spiel Spring Showcase. On Sunday, Jace played with great confidence and came out firing against Redline, sinking three first half threes. Sanderson excels at moving without the ball, curling up top for dribble handoffs where she is able to quickly get in rhythm and knockdown threes at the top of the key. Jace’s clean footwork isn’t only displayed off the catch when getting into her jumpers, but she is also sneaky good at getting downhill where she finishes with both hands. Sanderson posted 13 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal. Jace looks like she has the chance to blossom into one of the better 2027 prospects in North Georgia.

2027 5-11 PF Payten Day – Explosive Elites – Creekview
I really liked the toughness Payten brought to the paint. Day is a physical forward that doesn’t shy away from banging under the basket. She rebounds in traffic with both hands and can score through bumps. Day can catch defenders napping in the high post, faking handoffs to turn corners and attack the rim. Payten is a stout defender that alters shots and eliminates second chance points. Payton put up 8 points, 14 rebounds, 1 steal and 3 blocks against Redline.

2027 5-4 G Lillian Barrett – Explosive Elites – Woodstock
The hustle of Lily Barrett caught my eye. The scrappy guard battled for rebounds, fought for loose balls and was a pest on defense. She didn’t need to score a ton to positively influence the game. Barrett made good decisions with the ball as a passer but also did show off her offensive game, hitting a baseline jumper before sinking a three off the bounce.  Lillian stuffed the stat sheet with 5 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals and 1 block. Barrett’s versatility and motor make her a terrific glue-guy.

Kyla Cantey2026 5-9 G Kyla Cantey – Explosive Elites – River Ridge
With Gabbie Gliatta out with a serious ankle injury, Kyla Cantey was pressed into carrying the offensive load for the Explosive Elites in the High School Championship. Cantey poured in 13 points, 1 assist and 3 steals in the 55-32 loss to Lady Dominance Lioness. Kyla dropped in 11 points in the first half as the Elites trailed 28-21 before running out of steam. Cantey scored two off the tip with her right hand and scored all her points on drives to the basket aside from three free throws. Her prettiest move came off a steal, spinning for a tough And-1 layup. The lefty has a chance to cement herself as a D-I prospect as she gets stronger and her outside shot becomes more consistent. She has a high ceiling and should be tracked by D-I and D-II programs alike over her final two seasons which she will see an increase in role each year.

2026 5-5 G Rain McRae – Explosive Elites – Sequoyah
Rain is a high effort player. The lefty mixes it up on defense and will crash in to rebound against bigger players. She knocked down a mid-range jumper and a three-ball with her somewhat unorthodox looking shot. McRae filled up the box score with her hustle, finishing with 5 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block.

2026 5-9 G Cameron Schlichting – Explosive Elites – Woodstock
Whenever Kyla Cantey was on the bench, Cameron became the team’s primary ball handler. Schlichting finished with 6 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block. Adding confidence when handling with her left hand will help her combat on-ball pressure. While her off-hand dribbling could use some shoring up, Cam showed a nice scoring touch with her left hand, scoring on a floater and with a reverse pivot tear drop in the lane. Schlichting’s outside shooting and quality size give her the versatility to play 1-3.

Shamaria Arnold2024 5-10 F Shamaria Arnold – Lady Dominance Lioness – Southwest DeKalb
Explosive Elites had no answer for the unsigned senior inside. Shamaria Arnold powered her way to 14 points, 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block in Lady Dominance’s 55-32 championship. Arnold is strong and physical, making a living getting on the glass. Shamaria has a soft touch around the basket. She gobbled up any rebounds she got a paw on and was able to earn multiple chances for the Lioness to score. Shamaria has a few college offers in tow. She will be a nice late addition to a roster looking to add toughness and combo-forward versatility.

2025 5-10 W Kyara Ware – Lady Dominance Lioness – Creekside Christian
Ware brought great energy to the table. Kyara is an athletic presence on both ends of the court. She runs the floor for easy buckets, she gets on the offensive glass and she is capable of defending different areas. She scored on a pair of putbacks and nearly notched a double-double, finishing with 7 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.

2025 5-2 G Jersana Moore – OMG – Union Grove
The little lefty found her offense in transition. She streaked down the floor to score easy layups, found by her outlet passing bigs. In the half court, Jersana used her jitterbug quickness to get penetration and drop in floaters. Moore is a tough finisher. Just because she’s small doesn’t mean she’s scared to attack. Jersana was fearless with her team-leading 12 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist in a 57-35 win over Zone6 Celtics 2026 Gold.

Leilani Ward
2025 5-3 PG Leilani Ward – OMG – Luella
Leilani has good court vision. When she attacks the hoop her head is up, looking to distribute upon vacuuming in the defense. Ward drops accurate bounce passes in tight quadrants. Leilani is a threat to score off the bounce as well, a crafty finisher that utilizes scoop layups. Ward contributed 7 points, 1 rebound, 3 assists and 2 steals.

Ayana Roberts2026 6-0 PF Ayana Roberts – OMG – Hampton
Roberts drew my attention quickly once she entered the game. Ayana is a powerful post presence. She pounds away on the glass and showcased her back-to-the-basket game as she scored on high-low feeds after sealing her defender. Roberts also stepped outside to hit a long jumper and pushed the ball in transition after snagging a rebound. I am interested in seeing more of the rising junior. She tallied 8 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1 block in impressive fashion.

Addison Strickland2025 6-0 C Addison Strickland – OMG – Konos Academy
Hidden away in the GAPPS, Addison Strickland is a viable prospect that small schools looking for size and upside may need to tap into. Strickland passes the eye test. She has very good size with an athletic and strong frame. Strickland moves her feet very well on defense. Addison is an effective rebounder. She scored off two putbacks, one she ran the floor for to clean up a miss, not falsely assuming her teammate would make the breakaway layup. Strickland scored an And-1 for her first hoop of the day and finished with 7 points, 8 rebounds and 1 steal. Addison has interesting tools to work with and should improve with reps against better competition.

PRO Spring Showdown Boys Top Performers

Khore Furlow
2024 6-7 F Khore Furlow – Griffin
The Region 2-4A Co-Defensive Player of the Year earned a Voorhees offer after camp. Furlow made an impact with his rim protection, using his length and athleticism to swat away shots. He did a good job sticking with plays and coming from behind to deny layup attempts. Khore contested everything on defense and did a nice job getting on the offensive glass for putbacks. He will need to add some weight to his frame, but Furlow has nice upside for an unsigned senior. He showed the ability to step outside and hit the three and has room to grow on the perimeter.

Brent Williams2026 6-7 F Brent Williams – Loganville
Brent was established in the post early on. He loved to set high ball screens and roll to the basket. Williams ran the floor for easy hoops and was able to earn tough buckets inside, finishing with dunks and lefty turnaround jumpers.

Christian Little
2025 6-4 W Christian Little – Westside-Macon
Little caught fire with his outside shot, netting threes off the dribble, hitting step-backs and side-step long balls. The big-bodied wing as showed his athleticism downhill, able to absorb contact and finish with authority in traffic.

Jaleel Jordan
2024 6-1 G Jaleel Jordan – Jones County
Stood out with his electric leaping ability. Listed at 6-foot-1, Jordan explodes to the rim for dunks and rebounds. Opponents have to be aware of him when a shot goes up as Jaleel can rush to the rim from the perimeter to snag putbacks. Jordan has some wiggle downhill, able to slyly maneuver his way through the defense for layups.

Isaiah Camon
2025 6-1 G Isaiah Camon – Lowndes
The knockdown lefty is so smooth getting into his jumper. He attacks defenses off the bounce and excels at getting to his spots in the mid-range where he gets great elevation on his jumper, making it tough to defend. Camon is comfortable playing at his own pace. While he can crank it up and play at a high tempo, he is equally as good playing a methodical style as he hunts his offense and weaknesses in the defense.

Cason Harden
2026 5-11 G Cason Harden – Colquitt County
Cason did damage from distance, a long-range sniper with his three-point shot. Harden made some plays with the ball in his hands, finding open teammates and also mixed it up on defense as an on-ball defender. His confidence on the floor is apparent. Once he sees one shot drop, more will follow.

Jelani Dean
2024 5-9 G Jelani Dean – Veterans
One of the shortest players in camp as well as one of the most lightweight, Jelani Dean packed a punch on Sunday. His lack of size didn’t hinder him a bit as his motor shone through. The high energy guard finished at the rim using his springy bounce to score through the trees. He aggressively got downhill and proved to be crafty finisher. When defenders sagged off Dean to respect his quickness with the ball, he burned them with his three-point shot.

Jaelin Lumpkin
2024 6-0 G Jaelin Lumpkin – Oglethorpe County
I really liked the athleticism of Jaelin Lumpkin. He’s a fast-twitch guard that plays with great speed. He darts around the floor, changing speeds and directions in a blink. He is able to turn corners and hurt defenses with his consistent penetration. He has upside as a drive-and-kick distributor.

Kameron Plummer
2025 6-2 G Kameron Plummer – Houston County
Wiry with a broad set of shoulders, its hard to believe Kameron Plummer is already a rising senior. The toolsy guard can play multiple positions on the perimeter, able to play on and off the ball. He is a good shooter off the catch and showcased the ability to create downhill, using clean footwork highlighted by a lightning quick spin to free himself on drives. With Plummer’s length and lateral speed, he is a very effective defender that brings energy and versatility.

Jayden Harper
2026 5-10 G Jayden Harper – Warner Robins
Jayden caught my eye with his effort and athleticism. Harper gets up with the big boys when it comes to rebounding in traffic and scoring at the hoop. He floats in the air to score through contact. The rising junior will be a handful once he is able to consistently mix in jumpers with his drives.

The Cry Baby Top Performers

Store Banner


Avery Huffman2025 5-5 G Avery Huffman – Redline – Denmark
Sharpshooting guard netted three threes in a 44-27 win over GB2. Huffman cashed in all her threes from the corners. She did a nice job scoring off the dribble as well, an improved aspect of her game. Avery scored on a drive, a short baseline pull-up and in transition by running the floor. She finished with 15 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 steals.

Parker Whipple
2026 5-7 G Parker Whipple – Redline – Lambert
Parker is an animal on the floor with her effort. She is involved in every loose ball and earns countless deflections. Offensively, it is her quick first step that stands out. Parker has a strong frame and once she turns corners on defenders, she puts them in her back pocket as she gets to the rim. Whipple got to the line throughout the game, shooting 4-8. She buried a corner three and found a pair of hoops in transition. Whipple posted 13 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

Claire Carlson
2026 5-9 G Claire Carlson – Redline – Cherokee Bluff

Lengthy guard did a little bit of everything on Saturday. Outside shot wasn’t falling against GB2 but still managed to positively influence the game with her versatility. Rebounded, facilitated and defended at a high level. Got to her left hand on downhill drives. Attacked the defense baseline and would laser out assists to the top of the key for threes on one-handed passes. Sees the floor extremely well. Went for 4 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks.

Oddyssey Murray
2026 5-9 W Oddyssey Murray – GB2 – Douglas County
I came away impressed with the hard-playing lefty. Oddyssey has nice size on the wing and holds enough toughness to make a difference in the paint. The southpaw is very active on defense, cleaning up rebounds and picking off passes going coast-to-coast. She scored in a variety of ways against Redline and Team Tiff Johnson, netting a three, scoring on putbacks and getting out in transition. Murray recorded 9 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 4 steals against Redline before posting 7 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 5 steals in a 36-16 win over TTJ. Oddyssey is a stat sheet stuffer on both ends of the floor. I like her game and her upside.

Shelby McCall2026 5-6 G Shelby McCall – GB2 – Hillgrove
Shelby was in complete control against Team Tiff Johnson, making things happen from the opening tip. McCall’s well-balanced floor game makes others around her better. She is a smart playmaker that puts her teammates in positions to score. When she called her own number, McCall hurt the defense from multiple levels, knocking down pull-up jumpers, getting to the rim and even scoring out of the post. Shelby does a good job of seeking contact and going into larger defenders’ chests to score inside, drawing fouls in the process. She went 5-6 from the charity stripe against TTJ, finishing with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal. Even at 5-foot-6, McCall is a very good rebounder with a keen nose for the ball. In a loss against Redline, Shelby managed 4 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

2024 5-4 G Genesis Scott – Team Tiff Johnson – Washington
The unsigned senior was a bright spot. She handles the ball with poise and has a pretty outside shot with three-point range. She spaces the floor from the top of the key and was an active defender. Against GB2, Scott tallied 4 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 3 blocks.

Alivia Mitchell
2028 5-8 G Alivia Mitchell – Team All In Sisterhood – Chapel Hill Middle School
Chapel Hill has some talent upcoming with the big guard. Alivia has nice polish to her game. She uses her left hand at the basket and has a clean jump shot. She buried a pair of threes, netted a pull-up jumper, scored on a putback and utilized her off-hand downhill en route to finishing with 14 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals and 1 block in a win over Horton Academy.

Kaitlyn Mercier
2028 5-8 W Kaitlyn Mercier – Team All In Sisterhood – Harvester Christian
Kaitlyn thrived in transition, scoring on fastbreak opportunities. She hit a three in the half court and was able to get to the line after cleaning up rebounds, shooting 2-6. Mercier showed a willingness to shoot with her left hand and was a threat to go coast-to-coast in the open floor. She dumped in 11 points, 9 rebounds, 5 steals and 1 block vs. Horton Academy.  

Kamiyah Williams
2030 5-8 W Kamiyah Williams – Team All In Sisterhood – Lone Cane Middle School
Only a current sixth grader, Kamiyah Williams has a chance to be special. She has long arms and moves well laterally, guarding Horton Academy’s point guard, forcing turnovers in the process. Williams’ reach was tough to deal with on the glass, puling down rebounds and scoring on putbacks. Kamiyah finished with 8 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.


Xavier Buckner2026 6-3 W Xavier Buckner – Team All In Brotherhood – Villa Rica
A wide receiver on the football team, Buckner has explosive athleticism.  He tries to finish with a dunk whenever he can and is an aerial threat for opponents. Xavier has a strong frame and knows how to use it. He finishes through contact exceptionally well. When attacking from the wing, Xavier utilizes a spin move to get to the rack. He is also a competent shooter from the mid-range, able to rise and fire over contests.

Kadan Spratling2026 6-1 G Kadan Spratling – Team All In Brotherhood – Carrollton
Kadan is a physical powerhouse in the backcourt. The weight room warrior has the bounce to catch oops and will use his strength to collect rebounds in traffic and guard bigger players. He’s a multi-positional piece thanks to his athleticism and toughness.

Aayson Reese2029 5-8 G Aayson Reese – Team All In Brotherhood – Villa Rica
Only a seventh grader, Aayson Reese has intriguing long-term upside. He is an all downhill guard. He loves to attack the hoop, draw fouls and play bully ball. He’s tough to stop in transition. Reese went 6-12 from the foul line. He totaled 16 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals in an overtime loss to Horton Academy.

Chase Ward2029 5-5 PG Chase Ward – Team All In Brotherhood
Ward stood out as a playmaker. He was able to get penetration and kick to shooters. He scored with both hands at the rim, used a floater and knocked down a three to finish with 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal.

Jagger Whitty
2028 5-11 G Jagger Whitty – Griffin – Triple Double
Smooth release on three-point shot. Willing to pull up from deep in transition. Sees the floor well as a lead guard. High effort level on defense late into camp, closing out hard to contest three-point shots. Should add immediate value to a varsity roster with his skill as both an on and off-ball guard.

Bahji Daniel
2026 5-9 G Bahji Daniel – Spalding – BBallers Elite
Sparkplug with high energy. Uses a quick burst to the basket. Explosive finisher gets good elevation. Scores at the rim with both hands. Was able to keep the defense honest with his three-point shot. Could turn up the heat as an on-ball defender and turn over opponents.

Cameron Ogletree
2025 5-11 G Cameron Ogletree – Heard County – YSE
Did the dirty work as a glue guy. Dove on the floor for loose balls. Ignited fastbreaks with his outlet passing. Continuing to improve his ability to finish at the rim through contact will bode well for his development. Plays under control with the ball. Limits turnovers.

Teagan Houser
2026 5-10 G Teagan Houser – Coahulla Creek – Underdogs
Solid athlete, agile with the ball in his hands. Remained active away from the ball, sneaking in for rebounds when not blocked out. Adding some more weight to his frame will help him defensively and as a penetrator on offense. Showed a crafty finishing package when he was able to get to the hoop and found the open man off the dribble. Helped space the floor with his jumper.

Princeton King
2025 6-0 G Princeton King – Wilson Academy – Team Forest
Made his presence felt defensively. Was aggressive when trapping the ball and was able to dig out steals. Quick laterally and a good leaper with quality wingspan for his size. Wasn’t afraid to attack downhill, seek contact and finish through it. Had enough one-on-one skill to create space on the perimeter to get clean looks from the mid-range and beyond.

Justin McMillian
2025 6-2 G Justin McMillian – Tattnall County – Tattnall Chiefs
Epitome of a big guard. Was physically overpowering at times. Used his strength to go into the post, identifying mismatches and exploiting them. Scored with his back to the basket and worked hard on the offensive glass for putbacks. Knocked down a few threes throughout camp. Adding to his left hand and his overall handle will help open up his game. Received high marks for his great attitude and coachability.

Ryland Chambers
2027 6-1 G Ryland Chambers – Union County – Ga Kings
Reliable hustler that got on the floor. Attacked the basket with his left hand. Becoming more of a fast-twitch athlete. Range is growing on his jump shot. Sees the floor well and makes good decisions with the ball. Helped rebound and defend bigger players.

Thrasher Wilkins
2025 6-1 G Thrasher Wilkins – North Oconee
Athleticism has really improved, becoming a much bouncier player with the capability of playing above the rim. Uses his newfound hangtime when attacking the basket, hanging in the air to make decisions. Did a nice job of sucking in the defense before dropping off assists. Continuing to improve as a ball handler against pressure. Made an impact with his ability to block shots. Shoots the ball well from the mid-range.

Maddox Young
2025 6-1 G Maddox Young – Union County – NGE
Can always count on him to play hard. Slashes to the basket and will attack the offensive glass. Filled the lanes in transition. Utilized a step-through floater in traffic. Rotated over to block some shots and is a steady defender. Hit some threes but needs to become more consistent from distance. Has a chance to grow as a playmaker downhill.


MJ Jinks
2027 5-5 G MJ Jinks – Tattnall County – Tattnall Chiefs
Little guard got valuable reps with varsity level players. Got more comfortable with the pace of play as the day went on. Stood out with his hustle. Provided good effort defensively and was a team player that shared the ball on offense.

Jy'Son Mallard
2027 5-11 G Jy’Son Mallard – Long County – Georgia Bombers
Lanky guard starting to find his identity. Made plays on defense, blocking shots as a one-on-one defender. Brings toughness to the floor. Worked his way onto the offensive glass for putbacks and hit a few threes on the day.

Samuel Ginn
2028 5-5 G Samuel Ginn – Harvester Christian – ALLIN Brotherhood
Even though he was the smallest player on the floor, Ginn competed at a high level. Knocked down some perimeter jumpers and attacked off the dribble with a baseline floater. Used a spin move to break free of his defender. Was a scrappy defender and tried to mix it up whenever he could.

Brody Carruth
2025 6-0 G Brody Carruth – East Jackson – SW Stamp Squad
Well-rounded wiry playmaker. Used his length to finish at the rim. Got downhill as a drive-and-kick creator. Has a smooth feel to his game. Handles pressure well while seeing the floor. Did a nice job on defense, able to switch off his man and keep ball handlers in front.

Joe Drew III
2025 6-3 W Joe Drew III – Pierce County – SPB
Impressive physical athlete. Plays very hard. Gets on the glass to find garbage points. Dangerous slasher finishes with both hands. Earned the review as being a “Draymond-esque” type player due to his grittiness as a defender. Wide receiver is someone you want to go to war with.

Hayden Collins
2027 6-0 G Hayden Collins – Wilkinson County – Team Culture
The skinny goggled guard showed off his shot making on the perimeter, hitting a handful of threes throughout camp. Defensively, his quickness and activity level earned him high grades.  As he adds muscle to his frame, expect Hayden to become more effective as a driver.

Zi'on Thomas
2027 6-3 W Zi’on Thomas – Long County – Skills Sports Academy
Explosive athlete with a high ceiling. Threw down dunks and netted corner threes. Came on strong to close his freshman season. Adding to his arsenal as a ball handler will help him get to the rim consistently. Can live off hustle plays for now. Has a soft touch around the basket. Has all the tools to really blossom over his next three seasons. Sneaky good prospect out of Ludowici.

Jason Welborn
2026 6-2 G Jason Welborn – Decatur
Nice skill level. Wiry guard created offense with one-dribble step-back jumpers. Strong finisher in traffic with an explosive downhill attack that results in slams. Boasts a mature, well-rounded floor game. Gets others involved and is an active participant on defense. Flashed his high upside throughout camp.

Zyi'Air Holt
2026 6-1 W Zyi’Air Holt – Long County – Georgia Bombers
3&D mold. Knocks down corner threes and is a versatile and physical defender. Plays bigger than his size. Good reach to contest shots. Active rebounder. Does a good job finding the open man.

Kingston Whitty
2026 6-1 G Kingston Whitty – Lovett –Team Huncho 3SSB
Fills it up from the perimeter. Compact shooting form. Nails pull-up threes and gets to his spots in the mid-range. Wired-to-score. Can be shifty with the ball when attacking the hoop. Will use his shoulder to power into defenders. Sneaky explosive, able to elevate to the rim when finishing in a crowd. Was one of camp’s most well-rounded guards.


Corderra Williams
2025 5-7 G Corderra Williams – Westover – Georgia Thunder 17U
Aggressive on-ball defender loves to lock down opponents. Uses his speed and active hands to frustrate ball handlers. Reliable ball handler himself. Does a good job getting penetration. Is a pass-first facilitator. Rotates down to rebound amongst the trees.

Cason Reed
2028 5-10 G Cason Reed – Banks County – Georgia Generals
Knocked down corner threes and made the extra pass along the perimeter. Moves well without the ball and gets his feet set on the catch. Has some wiggle downhill, able to get to his floater in traffic.

Dorian Watkins
2025 5-10 G Dorian Watkins – West Laurens – Dubtown
Emerged as one of the best shooters in camp. Sprayed threes from the corner and from the wing. Understood what his strengths were and played into them. Also stood out as a defender that was able to protect his yard.

Jaylon Seymour
2025 6-0 G Jaylon Seymour – Providence Christian
Showcased versatility as he was able to play on and off the ball. With the ball in his hands, Seymour created well for others. He kept the ball moving and saw the floor well. He made others around him better with his unselfish play. Jaylon packed a punch on offense with his scoring touch, drilling multiple mid-range jumpers. Seymour defended on the perimeter and held his own when stuck guarding on the low block.

Emanuel Befekadu
2024 6-0 G Emanuel Befekadu – Meadowcreek – No Excuses
I liked the pace that Befekadu played at. The veteran guard got the ball up the floor quickly and was constantly surveying the floor for his open shooters. Emanuel got praise for being his team’s floor general with his communication. He displayed toughness and physicality as a defender.

Whitfield Hyde
2025 6-7 W Whitfield Hyde – Hoop Atlanta
Whitfield was among camp’s breakout stars. The 6-foot-7 rising senior was lights-out from distance, piling in threes throughout the day. At his size, Hyde’s shot was challenging for anyone to contest. He is a zone buster with his ability to shoot from the corners. He used his length to attack the offensive glass for putbacks and blocked a handful of shots. Hyde is an early candidate to see his stock soar his senior season.

Luke Lawson
2026 6-7 F Luke Lawson – North Oconee
Did what you would want from a post player – block shots and rebound. Lefty played with a high motor. Knocked down multiple 15-footers. Ran the floor for putbacks. Showcased blossoming ball skills, grabbing rebounds and pushing in transition as a distributor.

Tallie Webber
2026 6-3 G Tallie Webber – Grace Christian
Big guard with length. Well-rounded scorer. Filled the lanes in transition. Finished with his left hand. Found success as a slasher, able to score over top of smaller defenders. Holds upside on defense, able to guard multiple positions with his switchability.

Kai McAfee
2024 6-2 G Kai McAfee – Lithonia – Atlanta Heat
Got to his spots in the mid-range. Was able to get all the way to the hoop, finishing with both hands. Three-level scorer kept the defense off balance. Got into the paint and was able to dish to open teammates. Wasn’t shy about doing the dirty work as a rebounder and defender.

Cole Berry
2026 6-1 G Cole Berry – ELCA – HLHK
Sturdy frame. Plays bigger than his size thanks to his strength and vertical leap. Battles for rebounds and can guard both on the perimeter and in the paint. Hit shots from all over the floor. Fits in the ELCA mold of being a do-everything guard.


Bryson Vincent
2026 5-9 PG Bryson Vincent – ACE
Love the improvement from last year to this year. Used his low center of gravity to turn corners and attack the hoop. Consistently was able to penetrate. Mixed in some pull-up jumpers. Quick, active and was able to make the right reads. Looked comfortable with the ball in his hands.

Ryan Strickland
2027 5-10 G Ryan Strickland – Monroe Area
Came out of the gates strong, playing with energy as he scrapped his way for putbacks. Understands his role and immediately races down to the corners in transition for three-point looks. Played within himself and made good decisions with the ball. Adding strength will help him as an individual defender. Was starting to find his groove before a foot injury cut his day short.

Keyon Calhoun
2027 5-10 G Keyon Calhoun – Tattnall County – Tattnall Chiefs
Bowling ball of a guard was tough getting downhill. Used his physicality to ward off defenders. Knocked down some threes from the corner. Stayed in attack mode. Rebounded well from the backcourt. Strong enough to block out bigger players.

Juan Hawes
2027 6-0 G Juan Hawes – Paulding County – NME
Lanky guard proved to be a hard worker. Active on both ends of the floor. Had a nice handle and a quick first step. Was able to get to the basket and holds upside as a drive-and-kick facilitator.

Jacob Batusic
2027 6-0 G Jacob Batusic – Lanier Christian
Made his mark with his outside shooting. Competed well defensively. Liked to back down his man when handling the ball on the perimeter. Working on a sharp crossover when facing up his man will allow him to make quicker moves downhill. Holds promise as a guard that can play both on and off the ball.

John Morris II
2027 6-7 F John Morris II – Tri-Cities – Running Rebels
Flashed upside in our one-on-one station. Big lefty knocked down a three and used his size to overpower defenders on his way to the hoop. Needs to quicken his feet, but was still very effective on the block, scoring with his back to the basket. Scored through contact. Has long-term potential out of the screen game, both in the pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop.

Trip Griffith
2025 6-5 F Trip Griffith – Monroe Area – Classic City Ballers
Explosive leaper with quick second jump. Cleans up misses extremely well. Scores through contact. Will take his man off the dribble from the high post. Extending his range to 15-feet and beyond would be huge for his game. Workhorse never takes a play off. One of Georgia’s elite double-double producers and most improved players.

Payton Waters
2025 6-3 W Payton Waters – Mt. Zion-Carrollton – BTA Basketball
Elite motor. Plays extremely hard. Very athletic wing that loves to attack downhill. Battles on the backboards and gets on the floor for loose balls. Finishes through contact. Has improving range on his jumper. Impactful player on both ends of the floor. Tone setter.

Levi Slaten
2024 6-2 SG Levi Slaten – Oconee County – Classic City Ballers
Catch-and-shoot threat from the corners. Plays under control and can work his way to the rim. Implements one and two-dribble pull-ups. Provides offensive production from all three levels. 4.0 GPA student scored a 1260 on the SAT.


Birdy Cunningham
2024 5-11 G Birdy Cunningham – East Jackson – Riggs
Big body guard absorbs contact when getting downhill. Uses his strength to get two feet in the paint before kicking out to shooters. Hustles in for putbacks.

JD Ellis
2025 5-11 G JD Ellis – North Murray – NG Pink Panthers
Knockdown shooter buried threes from the corner. Sees the floor well. Delivers bullet corner-to-corner skip passes for open threes. Has room to improve his left hand. Does the little things well and provides consistent effort on both sides of the ball.

Fabian Bailey
2027 5-10 G Fabian Bailey – Thomson – TM ELITE
Brought energy on defense as a pesky on-ball defender. Used his quickness to create for others when getting downhill. Has some craftiness to his game when it comes to beating his first defender off the bounce. Knocked down shots out of the pick-and-roll.

Savon Kelly
2026 6-3 F Savon Kelly – Columbus – Columbus Wolves
Physical combo-forward uses his muscle inside. Carves out space and can finish through fouls. Has a soft touch from the free throw line. Left hand still in the process of development. Was able to play above the rim. His activity on defense led to blocked shots.

Cullen Marti
2025 6-6 PF Cullen Marti – Coahulla Creek – Colts
Marti was one of the premier breakout stars of camp. The big bodied post had an advanced skill set. Not only could he bang down low and score with his back to the basket with up-and-unders and drop steps, but Cullen stepped outside and drained three after three, showcasing his stretch-forward arsenal. Marti did a great job scoring through contact with a soft touch and was unmovable off the block once he got position for post feeds and rebounds. While Marti primarily played below the rim and has room to grow athletically, the rising senior likely boosted his stock better than anyone else in camp. D-III and NAIA programs will want to evaluate.

2026 6-3 G Brandon Nelson – Gainesville
Overall, one could argue that Brandon Nelson was the top player in camp. Nelson was silky smooth getting to his pull-up jumper, peppering defenses from the mid-range and three-point line. When Brandon took shots, he made them – very rarely missing. He displayed athleticism as a downhill driver, finishing at the rim with authority. Nelson made the game look easy with his easy approach. Year 3 will be big for Brandon.

Kenari Harris
2025 6-2 G Kenari Harris – Calhoun County – Georgia Thunder
Wiry high-energy guard can play 1-3. Did a good job getting downhill and scoring through contact. Earned multiple second chance opportunities with his hustle, scrapping for rebounds and winning loose balls. With his length and athleticism, has a chance to be an above average perimeter defender.

Marquez Coffey
2024 6-0 G Marquez Coffey – Lithonia
Good outside shooter with a pretty release. Drained threes from the corner and wing. Could get physical when attacking the paint. Crafty finisher in traffic. Three-level scoring threat that also got others involved.


Michael Polke
2025 5-10 PG Michael Polke – Toombs County – Tattnall Chiefs
Tough-nosed on-ball defender. Quick instincts when shooting into passing lanes. Doesn’t have to score much to positively impact games. Very strong with the ball. Tends to be a pass-first creator. Found his offense on drives. Hit the three-ball overtop of screens. High motor lead by example type of point guard.

Jaiden Thomas
2025 5-11 G Jaiden Thomas – First Preparatory Christian
Entered camp as a relative unknown coming from the GIAA but left Sunday as one of the top guards in attendance. Took full advantage of the stage showcasing his high-level shot making ability. Dynamic isolation scorer that went to work in the mid-range on pull-ups. Created just enough separation to hit step-backs. Three-level scorer used his athleticism to get downhill and played a physical brand of basketball while doing so. Effective on-ball defender.

Tyler Blake
2026 5-7 G Tyler Blake – Fannin County
Used his lack of height to his advantage, utilizing a lightning quick low crossover to breakdown defenders. Had the ball on a string, going behind the back while weaving through the defense. Shifty playmaker read the defense well. Maintained a high level of activity as a pesky on-ball defender.

Nolan Roberts
2027 5-7 G Nolan Roberts – Lanier Christian
Looked to get others the ball as a distributor before hunting his own offense. Didn’t force things and was able to find the open man. Used both hands well. Very coachable.

David Boman
2025 6-0 G David Boman – White County – Metro Elite Basketball Club
Strong frame. Combo-guard can play with or without the ball. Knockdown three-point shooter with great form. Made plays off the dribble, attacking baseline before dishing for open layups and corner threes. Sneaky good explosion to the rim. Received praise as a 3&D guard.

Kolby Watson
2025 6-4 G Kolby Watson – Banks County – Stamp Squad
Sizeable shooter has seen his frame fill out over the years. Has a sturdy build which he can use to go post up smaller guards or back down defenders on the wing until he gets to a comfortable spot for his turnaround jumper. Deadly catch-and-shoot threat. Capable of making plays off the bounce when ran off the line. With his size and strength, he can help defend 1-4 on switches. Foot speed has been improving. One of the best shot makers in Northeast Georgia.

Cade Marti
2026 6-3 W Cade Marti – Coahulla Creek – Colts
Wiry swingman has impressive length. Good three-point shooter that can go on hot streaks. Understands defensive rotations. With his length, holds versatility as a defender. Can come over from the weakside to block shots.

Jake Mihalick
2026 6-7 F Jake Mihalick – Lanier Christian – Hoop Atlanta
Stretchy combo-forward played inside and out. Finished around the rim with dunks. Shoots the three well. Scored with his back to the basket with baby hooks and turnaround jumpers. Increasing his strength will help him long-term when it comes to playing inside, but has an exciting skill set especially as a catch-and-shoot option.

Matthew Clausen
2025 6-3 W Matthew Clausen – North Oconee
Drilled pull-up threes and got into the paint and finished with floaters. Has good length on the perimeter. Can play either the 2 or 3 and can guard different spots. Has improved his creativity with the ball, able to turn corners and kick to open shooters. High academic student holds a 100.5 GPA and tallied a 1400 on the SAT.

Austin Gerard
2027 5-8 G Austin Gerard – Lanier Christian
Scored in transition and showed toughness when it came to getting to the rim. Finished through contact very well for his size. Has a quick first step and a crafty handle, able to go behind the back to lose defenders. Smart player plays with energy.


Eric Love2026 6-0 G Eric Love – Valdosta – Team Georgia Magic
Shifty playmaker used his speed to get to his spots. Knocked down pull-up jumpers in transition and used two-dribble attacks to net mid-range shots. Hit multiple threes throughout the day. Finished at the rim, using changes of speed to beat defenders. Had good reads as an outlet passer to spark fastbreaks.

Tylen Metcalf2027 5-11 G Tylen Metcalf – Woodland-Carterville – Team Scoot
On the smaller side physically, the svelte young guard showed well on Sunday with his skill. Slick ball handler was hard to stay in front of. Looked good as a drive-and-kick playmaker. Used his speed in transition to score coast-to-coast with his left hand. Broke traps with his quickness. Provided reliable energy, diving on the floor for loose balls.

Dedrick Griffin
2025 5-6 G Dedrick Griffin – Toombs County – Pirates
Provided great eye contact with the coaches. Was one of the first players to get on the floor anytime there was a 50/50 ball. Showed attention to detail, quick to run back in transition defense. Stuck out with his willingness to do the little things.

Caden Watson
2026 6-3 G Caden Watson – Banks County – Georgia Generals
Has been in the weight room since last year. Knockdown shooter was more of a slasher on Sunday, using an improved handle paired with clean footwork to get to the rim. Made a difference on defense with his active hands, stripping opponents of the ball when going up for shots inside.

Austin Waters
2025 6-3 W Austin Waters – Mt. Zion-Carrollton – BTA Basketball
Much like his twin brother, will run through a brick wall. Elite effort and energy. Springy athlete scores on putbacks and short drives. Gets after it as an on-ball defender. Competitive and athletic enough to guard 1-5 if need be. Scored around the rim with duck in buckets. Made winning plays throughout the day, highlighted by stepping in to draw a charge in transition. Tough kid.

Braedyn Gillespie
2025 6-0 G Braedyn Gillespie – Tucker – Generation 2k
Southpaw was a binge scorer, one of the very best players in camp. Lights-out three-point shooter netted long balls in bunches. Did it off the catch and plenty off the dribble. Mixed it up as an on-ball defender and played with pace in transition.

Caleb Paige
2027 6-3 G Caleb Paige – Providence Christian – Georgia Stars
Intriguing long-term upside. Very good size and length in the backcourt. Fluid athlete eases into his pull-up jumper. Sees the floor well, delivering accurate bounce passes in transition and able to float in the air before dropping off dimes in the halfcourt. Uses his hangtime to get clean looks at the basket as well. High IQ playmaker. Good things happened when the ball was in his hands. He can play either guard position and is a valuable defender with his wingspan.

AJ Brown
2026 6-1 G AJ Brown – Elbert County
Great rebounder for his size. Didn’t give up on any plays. Lanky guard attempted to draw charges. Willing to defend any position needed for his team. Found his offense on putbacks and hit some floaters throughout the day. Nice touch from 10-feet and in. Ran the floor well.

Lefty had a knack for slicing through the defense and finishing in traffic. Quick first step got him to the hoop routinely. Knows how to finish amongst size. Made an impact as an on-ball defender, turning ball handlers multiple times.

Scrappy defense on and away from the ball. Had some nice looks in transition. Solid athlete was able to mesh well with others in the backcourt.

Strongly built guard brough toughness on defense. Played bigger than his size, especially when it came to rebounding. Hustled at all times and never let offensive players get any type of rhythm. Pushed the ball in transition and made good decisions in the open floor. Shot some mid-range pull-ups and was able to garner the defense’s attention before swinging the ball for better looks.

Tweener of a forward that can play inside and out. Wide receiver is a strong athlete. Gets a lot of points off hustle. Ball skills will need to tighten up over time, but is still effective as a downhill attacker that can clear rebounds and go coast-to-coast. Threat to score from the high post. Will use the one-dribble pull-up to score in the mid-range. Legitimate upside. Just scratching the surface of his potential.

Big guard is a three-level scorer. Lefty loves to stroke the corner three. Showed off his individual creativity in our one-on-one station, able to get defenders leaning before spinning back for turnarounds.  Finished well in the paint. Has good athleticism to work with over the next two years.

Can be used in a variety of ways. Strongly built athlete saw time in the high post, able to catch and shoot from the elbow. Had good moments as a physical rebounder. Attacked from the top of the key and got downhill on the left side, finishing with a right-hand scoop. Mixed in some threes and pull-up jumpers. Was tough to cut off once he got a head of steam.

Scrappy guard got after it on defense. Saw the floor well as a distributor. Able to probe the defense before hitting the open man. Made some plays as a slasher before hurting his ankle.

Big body bully-ball tweener. Overpowers defenders in the low post but has good guard skills to create on the perimeter. Breaks down his man and can finish with a finger roll. Hit shots from the three-point line and nailed pull-ups from the mid-range. Impressive footwork for his size to couple with his decision making.

Scored a 21 on the ACT and a 1040 on the SAT. Impressed with his improved playmaking ability. Big guard got downhill and patiently made his moves, bumping off defenders as he got to his spots. Used spin moves to free himself in traffic and played off two feet. Delivered some no-look passes and cashed in on three-point attempts.
