A wiry wing, Hasahnn Reynolds will try to replicate the success he saw in Florida at Immokalee, a school with over 1,800 students, the equivalent of a 6A school in Georgia. Reynolds averaged 17.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.3 steals per game as a junior. Reynolds can knock down the open three, hitting 45-of-138 attempts (33%). Reynolds has the length to defend the perimeter and help out on the glass. Having a knack for scoring, as a sophomore Reynolds netted 19.2 points per game. He suites up with 17U AC Georgia.
Douglas County adds Class AAAAA Freshman of the Year and Best Shot Blocker Omarion Smith from Lithia Springs. The 6-foot-4 post has impeccable timing, swatting away 6.7 shots per game to go along with his 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds. If he is able to grow 2-3 more inches, we might be talking about a Division I defensive presence. He moves to Douglas County to play with his brother Jeremiah.
Cornelius Hawkins brings length, versatility and upside to the Alexander perimeter as a swingman. He has been described as a smooth scorer with a high IQ and good court vision. He could provide a nice running mate alongside rising junior guard Jaylon Brown and a defensive and rebounding presence with senior center Brady Spence. He runs with 17U AC Georgia.
Chris Lango moves in from Roselle, New Jersey where he started and averaged 12.2 points per game. He will have an opportunity to help out in the backcourt right away.
After failing to record a .500 record last season at King’s Ridge and tallying a 40-40 mark in his three seasons on varsity with the Tigers, 6-foot-6 Class A-Private Second Team All-State selection Eric Coleman Jr. moves into Buford. The Wolves have two of the most versatile forwards in the class with Marcus Watson already in place. Both of them can play positions 2-5 at the high school level with the ability to steal minutes at multiple positions at the next level. Coleman has improved each season, diversifying his game from being a three-point shooter, into a slasher and even rounding out his game with some physicality in the paint and an ability to score with his back to the basket.
Jonesboro sees All-Region 4-AAAAAA Third Team selection 6-foot-6 wing Brice Martin transfer over from Mt. Zion. Martin averaged 12.3 points per game to go with his 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.1 blocks. Martin joins a Cardinal roster that will undergo quite a bit of turnover with a large 2018 class out the door. He and senior guard Brandon Walker should be asked to provide a lion’s share of the offense and bring back the most experience.
A quarterback on the football, Cam McDowell transfers from Griffin to North Oconee. The athletic 6-foot-4 forward should make an immediate impact for the Titans who finished 1-23 last season.
Another talented young face is added to the mix at Holy Innocents’ as Chance Moore moves in from Chamblee. A 6-foot-4 wing that just picked up an offer from Rutgers, Moore is an active slasher that can pull-up from 15-feet. His energy makes him a quality defender that can guard both on the perimeter and pick up weak-side blocks. Moore will fit in nicely with fellow 2021 guard Garrison Powell and rising junior Josh Smith.
Region 6A-A Honorable Mention selection Myson Lowe jumps across the region to join Sub-Region 6B’s Whitefield Academy. Lowe, 5-foot-8, provides wiggle in the backcourt with a strong shooting stroke. Lowe joins a young rebuilding program and should immediately be asked to run the offense and provide stability for Coach Courtney Brooks.
