Matthew McAuley
2025 5-10 PG Matthew McAuley – Allatoona
With the game on the line, Matthew McAuley showed his mettle hitting a sudden-death corner three to lift Allatoona past Whitewater 53-50 in the first game of the day. McAuley accounted for 15 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. The undersized guard is a heady playmaker whose best offense comes vis his jump shot. Matt netted three three-pointers in the win and showed some wiggle downhill, finishing tough layups in traffic.

Dean Soulsby2025 6-2 SG Dean Soulsby – Allatoona
The three-point marksman was dialed in, drilling four of Allatoona’s 10 threes against Whitewater. Dean has deep range. He scores off the catch from beyond the arc and has enough creativity to get his shot off the dribble. Soulsby tallied 12 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. He’s one of the best shooters in the state.

Seyi Daramola
2025 6-5 PF Seyi Daramola – Whitewater
Seyi is going to see his stock rise his senior season. The bouncy, high-energy forward will anchor the Wildcats this year. Daramola is a quick second leaper – a great offensive rebounder. Seyi has a quick first step, attacking the defense off the dribble from the high post and wing. His ability to play above the rim allows him to get to balls before opponents with his long arms and anticipation. Seyi scored on three putbacks against Allatoona and finished with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block. D-III and NAIA programs should take a long look at the burgeoning big man. Listed at 6-foot-5, Daramola plays much bigger than his size and holds important value defensively as a rim protector and someone that can switch out onto guards.

Brent Bell2026 6-5 SG Brent Bell – Darlington
All signs point to Brent Bell having a monster final two seasons. He was outstanding against Wesleyan, dumping in 26 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal in a 66-34 win. Bell’s efficiency and multi-level scoring was impressive. Brent sunk three three-pointers and bullied his way to the basket with physical drives, backing down his man, creating contact and finishing with either hand. At a legit 6-foot-5, Bell has all the tools to become a solid D-II prospect with the upside to potentially earn D-I interest. Buy stock now before the bell rings.

Christian Teasley2026 6-2 G Christian Teasley – Darlington
Christian will see plenty of opportunities to positively impact the Tigers this upcoming season. Teasley looks the part with the ball in his hands. He makes quick moves and can get his shot off the dribble. Teasley shoots the three well and has creativity attacking the basket, implementing spin moves and using his wiry strength to score through contact. Against Wesleyan, Teasley hit a pair of threes en route to posting 17 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.

2028 5-8 G Michael Weyer – Wesleyan
Though he was the smallest on the floor in most situations, Michael Weyer played without fear. The little guard stood out with his outside shot, knocking down threes and even mixing in floaters in the lane. As Weyer grows and gets more reps at the varsity level, expect his contributions to increase. With his three-point shot, Weyer could see important minutes early on in his career.

2025 6-4 G Grant Schelhammer – Wesleyan
With key seniors graduating, Grant Schelhammer could slide into a key role his final season. The long-armed lefty has good size on the perimeter. He can shoot the three and make plays off the bounce. Where I think Schelhammer’s greatest value lies is his versatility on defense. He has the length to affect offensive players both in the paint and on the perimeter. Against Darlington, Grant tallied 10 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists.

Jahmar Maurice2028 5-11 G Jahmar Maurice – Furtah Prep
Jahmar lived up to the hype against ML King, erupting for 26 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 1 block. The ballyhooed freshman is a fast-twitch athlete who is always in attack mode. Maurice gets downhill at will with sharp agility. He snaps off eurosteps with ease and can hang in the air to drop in his floater. When Jahmar gets out in transition, he is extremely difficult to catch. He explodes to the rim with speed and elevates to finish through defenders. Adding a consistent outside shot will make Maurice even scarier and could push him to the top as one of the best 2028s in Georgia. Maurice netted a corner three and went 2-5 from the line. His dynamic athleticism and knack for getting to the rim makes him one of the impactful freshmen in the state.

Emontae Gourdine2026 5-9 G Emontae Gourdine – ML King
The southpaw lit it up in a 54-52 loss to Furtah Prep, sinking four threes and two mid-range jumpers. Emontae hit two corner threes off the catch and was able to get to his sweep spots in the mid-range on pull-ups. When he found himself in the paint, he deftly maneuvered with floaters and step throughs. Gourdine dropped 24 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal. He is a sneaky good guard to keep an eye on moving forward.

Caleb Samples2025 6-6 W Caleb Samples – Union Grove
D-II schools should get familiar with Caleb Samples. The inside-out combo-forward has size, athleticism and skill. Over his two games against Southwest-Macon and St. Francis, Samples averaged 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists while hitting three three-pointers and five jumpers. Caleb got to work in the post as well, utilizing hook shots, post turnarounds and dunks. Samples took his man off the dribble from the wing and was able to hit tough shots from 15-feet. When Caleb cleared defensive rebounds, he looked to push in transition. Samples is an intriguing tweener that can be used in a variety of ways.

Chris Wray2027 6-3 W Chris Wray – Union Grove
The breakout star from camp who came in as a somewhat unestablished prospect was Chris Wray. The 3&D wing was outstanding in the corners with his floor spacing ability. Wray drilled 11 threes in two games, averaging 18 points, 5 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Chris did well defensively using his long arms to help guard on the perimeter before rotating down for rebounds. The catch-and-shoot specialist provides a new dimension to the Union Grove offense.

Chase Dupree2026 6-3 G Chase Dupree – Southwest-Macon
Chase is a pure scorer. Dupree who holds D-I offers, is skilled in isolation situations. He creates space off the dribble for his jump shot but also can serve as a facilitator, patient in the pick-and-roll as he lets his diver break through the first line of defense before putting passes on him for easy layups. Chase’s athleticism allows him to get lift on his jump shot which in turn gives him clean looks at the rim. Dupree drilled three three-pointers and hit a pair of mid-range pull-ups to supplement his floaters and slams. In Southwest-Macon’s 53-52 win over Union Grove, it was Dupree who it the game-winning pull-up jumper. His comfortably with the ball in his hands exudes great confidence to make plays. Dupree poured in 25 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1 block. Chase did not disappoint in my long-awaited first look.

Reynolds Escher2025 6-1 G Reynolds Escher – St. Francis
Reynolds is tough as nails. One of the state’s most consistent seniors, Escher is a bulldog on offense from 15-feet and in. He craftily uses his strength and deft footwork to maneuver his way to the hoop. Escher hits pull-up jumpers and does a really good job getting shifty with hesitation moves to get defenders off balance before seeking contact to get to the foul line. Developing a consistent three-point shot will elevate Escher on recruiting boards. In a 68-57 win over Union Grove, Reynolds nearly recorded a triple-double as the do-everything leader compiled 16 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists.

2026 6-3 SG Deniz Ozbek – St. Francis
I really like what Deniz does off the ball. He’s a strongly built shooting guard that spaces the floor with his three-point shot, a perfect fit playing next to Reynolds Escher. Ozbek strokes it from deep off the catch and can put the ball on the floor in spurts when needing to free himself. Deniz cashed in on five threes as he finished with 19 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist against Union Grove. Ozbek is trending up heading into his final two seasons.

Malik Gillespie2026 6-0 G Malik Gillespie – Houston County
Georgia State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff have both offered the hard-playing guard. With the violent athleticism and relentless effort of Malik Gillespie, at first look the polished playmaker may seem like primarily a downhill slasher, but Gillespie has a legit well-rounded game. Malik shoots the ball well off the dribble from the mid-range and three-point line. He has a nice in-between game from about 10-feet, capable of dropping in floaters. I love his agility, quick to change direction and dart around. His explosive leaping ability helps him finish at the rim and his second jump lets him clean up any misses. In a 63-62 loss to LaGrange, Malik filled up the box score with 19 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals and 1 block. Gillespie is one of Middle Georgia’s elite.

Kameron Plummer2025 6-1 PG Kameron Plummer – Houston County
Wiry with wide shoulders, Kameron Plummer has a nice frame for a lead guard. The pass-first playmaker has the length to impact games in different ways. His wingspan is in play when guarding on the perimeter, quick to deflect passes and force turnovers. Plummer uses his frame when getting to the hoop, able to create separation. Kam rebounds well and will initiate fastbreaks by pushing the ball. Plummer had 14 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 1 block against LaGrange, hitting a pair of threes and scoring on two putbacks.

BJ Wortham2025 6-0 G BJ Wortham – LaGrange
In a balanced Granger attack, BJ went for 13 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks to help LaGrange rally past Houston County. Wortham attacked the hoop with both hands. BJ went coast-to-coast and in the halfcourt was able to hit shots from the perimeter with three-point range. His activity level on defense shined as BJ closed out possessions with rebounds and defensive stands.

2025 6-4 W Torian Reeves – LaGrange
The viral dunking sensation proved he was more than just an athlete in a narrow win against Houston County. The jumping jack tallied 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 blocks. Reeves hit a mid-range jumper off the catch and created off the bounce, netting a pull-up. With his length and leaping ability, Torian got to the rim by using hesitations moves. His physical tools project Reeves to be an above average defender who can help guard 1-5.

Qwes Williams2025 6-7 W Qwes Williams – East Coweta
On a roster loaded with size and athleticism, Qwes stood out with his versatility. Williams can serve time between the three and the four. He has the quickness and ball skills to get downhill from the wing and can also hit shots from the perimeter. Williams sank a three against Pierce County. Qwes’ defense was a difference maker in the 53-42 win as he guarded inside and out which led to a balanced stat line of 7 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. College programs should be in touch with the intriguing Indian.

Nigel Brown2026 6-3 G Nigel Brown – Pierce County
Nigel Brown stepped up with Joe Drew absent due to football. Nigel has nice size at the guard position, a stout 6-foot-3 with muscle. He is a solid slasher that can finish against length. Brown is a competent jump shooter from 15-feet and has a chance to grow his range to the three-point line. Nigel scored a game-high 12 points vs. East Coweta.

2026 6-3 G Jared White – Heritage-Conyers
Scoring is in Jared White’s blood. The younger brother of James White (New Orleans), Jared has a knack for putting points on the board. Jared has a stronger frame than his brother at the same age, equipped with some weight which helps him when attacking the hoop. Jared peppered the defense on Sunday with his jump shot. He can go on personal scoring runs with his three-point shot. He has deep range, scoring off the catch and off the dribble.

2025 6-1 G Nick Durham – Alcovy
The wired-to-score lefty is the unquestioned go-to guy for Alcovy. Nick can get his shot off from all three levels. He utilizes the triple-threat upon the catch, jab stepping defenders as he sets them up for moves. Durham is a sneaky good playmaker that can deliver sharp passes to open teammates once the defense collapses on him. Nick is in line for an All-State caliber year and is a stock riser moving forward.

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.

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.
