Elana McMasters2026 5-10 W Elana McMasters – Southern Starz GA Karvis – Holy Innocents’
Maybe lost in the shuffle with blue-chip teammates surrounding her at Holy Innocents’, Elana McMasters got to showcase her skill at ATL SummerSlam and did so in impressive fashion. Listed at 5-foot-10 but possibly a little taller, McMasters is a big wing that loves to shoot the three. Her shot mechanics start a smidge low, but once she gets to her release she shoots very well and is a serious floor spacer. Aside from her dangerous outside shot, McMasters made a difference by using her size and crashing the offensive glass. She rips down rebounds to create second chance opportunities. Elana finishes with both hands. In a 57-42 loss, McMasters tallied 21 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block while sinking four threes. Elana has a bright future. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her end up on college radars of multiple levels in a few years.

Abby Lindsay2024 6-0 F Abby Lindsay – FBC NextUp – Marist
I think Abby Lindsay is flying under the radar. Marist not playing in the GBCA due to too many multisport athletes doesn’t make recruiting any easier, but Lindsay was able to take advantage of the ATL SummerSlam stage this weekend.  At 6-foot, Lindsay is a mobile stretch-forward that can play inside and out. I love her upside as a pick-and-pop shooter that also has the athleticism to slip to the basket. In a 58-40 win over SIPP Select, Abby hit two baseline jumpers and a short fadeaway in the paint coupled with a putback to finish with 8 points, 3 rebounds and 1 steal. Lindsay will be entering college coming from a disciplined program that hangs their hat on defense and offensive execution. At the right school, she could be a plug-and-play freshman that can provide quality minutes right away. D-III programs are in pursuit.

2027 5-9 G Maliyah Gilbert – Team S.H.E. – LaGrange
Maliyah Gilbert will change LaGrange’s fortunes around quickly. The incoming freshman has a strong build and is capable of playing all over the floor. The southpaw is aggressive. She can get downhill through traffic and can split defenders as she glides across the paint with skillful gathers. Maliyah scores from all three levels. In a 54-46 loss, Gilbert nailed two threes on her way to finishing with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 steals. Her toughness on the glass and ability to play through contact will serve her well. Gilbert is a good one.

Adelyn Thompson2027 5-5 G Adelyn Thompson – North GA Magic 2026 – Rabun County
I thought it was a huge week for Adelyn Thompson. Even dating back to War Games 28.5 earlier in the week, Thompson played up with the North GA Magic and fit in seamlessly, playing key minutes and producing at a consistent level. She provided 7 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals against Aja Wilson Elite at War Games and closed out Sunday night at ATL SummerSlam with a bang, netting the double overtime sudden death game-winning three to beat FBC Team All In Next Up 53-50, finishing with 7 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists and 3 steals. Adelyn was able to score from multiple levels throughout the week, dropping in threes, scoring with her floater and moving without the ball for easy baskets. As a freshman, she will be entering school with a varsity-ready body that won’t get pushed around. Thompson will be expected to play a major role in Year 1 as a future four-year letterwinner.

Millie Southards2029 5-5 PG Millie Southards – North GA Magic – Rabun County
Playing up with both the 2027 and 2026 North GA Magic, Millie’s toughness and skill shined through. The rising seventh grader is the next big thing at Rabun County. Southards is a pass-first point guard that creates for others. Improving her left hand will help her in the long term, but Millie’s ability to penetrate and find open shooters makes others around her better. Southards delivers accurate one-handed passes on the move and is a tough-nosed rebounder for her size. Playing with the ‘27s, Millie recorded 5 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals against SALH Turquoise. With the ‘26s, Southards recorded 2 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 1 block. While Millie doesn’t actively seek out to score much, she can produce points when needed and will as she gets more and more comfortable playing with her elders. Right now, every rep with older players is incredibly valuable and her ability to impact games without scoring is a positive sign for the future.

2028 5-5 G Ali Jae Bull – North GA Magic 2027 – Chestatee
Ali Jae Bull is a Riley Black clone. She is ahead of where the two-time All-State guard was at her age, giving her an advantage in terms of her long-term development. Bull, who plays nothing like sister Caroline a three-point shooter, is a relentless downhill attacker. Ali Jae forces the issue at the rim, drawing fouls with her aggressiveness. Just like Black, Bull relentlessly pursues rebounds and outmuscles bigger players. Listed at just 5-foot-5, it is jarring how big Bull plays. Ali Jae went 9-14 from the foul line to finish with 11 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals in a 50-48 loss, playing up an age group.

Ava Roberson2026 6-0 C Ava Roberson – North GA Magic – Dawson County
I really liked what I saw out of Ava Roberson on Sunday night. She took full advantage of her size, sealing deep in the paint and finishing with her post hook shot which she does a nice job of keeping the ball away from the defender. Roberson looked comfortable shooting from the perimeter, knocking down a one-dribble pull-up. Ava even put the ball on the floor and got to the rim for a layup. Roberson provided 11 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocks against FBC Team All In Next Up.

Lyla Griffith2026 5-9 W Lyla Griffith – North GA Magic – Cherokee
Lyla’s versatility and steadiness are hallmarks of her game. Griffith has the strength to play inside and the finesse to play outside. She embraces contact on drives, rebounds and when defending. Lyla can finish with both hands. Griffith buried a pair of threes, a mid-range jumper and got to the rim multiple times to finish with 16 points, 3 rebounds and 1 steal on Sunday night. Griffith has a knack for playing big.

2026 5-6 PG Emyrie Combs – FBC Team All In Next Up – Lakeview Academy
The Habersham Central transfer should put Lakeview Academy atop the GIAA. Combs is a strong, compact guard that plays with pace. Emyrie is an aggressive athlete that goes at opponents. She attacks the basket with both hands and is an active defender. She tallied 10 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 5 steals and 2 blocks in a 48-44 loss. Expect Emyrie to be a catalyst for a Lakeview Academy program that is steadily starting to accumulate talent.

Ana Anzola2028 5-6 G Ana Anzola – Redline – North Forsyth
I’m excited to host Redline at the Sandy’s Spiel Fall League at Dawson County. Ana Anzola is a big reason why. I loved how she played on Saturday in my initial viewing. Anzola is a lefty that plays at a good tempo and hustles on both ends. She’s a fluid athlete with good instincts. Ana shoots the three off the catch and off the dribble. Standing around 5-foot-6, Anzola isn’t afraid to swoop in for rebounds. She knocked down three threes and finished with 15 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals and 1 block vs. FBC South Platinum. I’m eager to watch Anzola more.

Kivana Bogan2024 5-11 F Kivana Bogne – FBC Team All In Next Up – Lakeview Academy
I was very impressed with my first look at Kivana Bogne, albeit playing down two divisions. Bogne is a good athlete. She hunts down rebounds and is a threat to score on putbacks. The lefty moves very well and helps handle the ball. Still new to the game of basketball after moving to the states not long ago, Kivana has a chance to expand her game onto the perimeter. On Sunday night she netted a transition jumper, hit a one-dribble pull-up and sank a long two. Bogne finished with 18 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block. Kivana is a serious sleeper with her best basketball ahead of her. Bogne is starting to pop up on D-III radars.

Dynesty Putman2025 5-6 G Dynesty Putman – FBC Team All In Next Up – Lakeview Academy
When the game was on the line against North GA Magic 2026, everything ran through Dynesty Putman. The rising junior emerged as the alpha, penetrating with her dribble as the defense struggled to keep her out of the lane. Putman was able to break free using spin moves, scoring downhill on seven drives. She posted 22 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist. Dynesty didn’t settle and always got where she wanted to go. If she is able to mix in some outside shots, it could open up the floor even more.
