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.

The Cry Baby Top Performers

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.

PRO Movement
Store Banner

The Sandy’ Spiel Spring Showcase sold out for a third consecutive year, hosting 76 prospects from all across the state of Georgia who were looking to improve their game and boost their exposure before diving into travel ball. Schools from multiple levels were in attendance as NAIA, D-III and D-II programs traveled to Gainesville High School to evaluate prospective student-athletes. With the help of our esteemed eight-coach staff, here are our player evaluations sorted by team.



Damaria Colburn
2028 5-8 G Damaria Colburn – Gainesville – OU Legends
Late addition to camp was able to use her body to score through contact downhill. Liked to seek out defenders and go into their chests to score at the rim. Provided toughness and hit some shots from the perimeter throughout the day.

Julia Payne
2025 5-8 G Julia Payne – Gainesville
Caught the attention of colleges in the building as a new face to track. Liked to take pull-up jumpers off screens. Goes behind the back with fluidity. Has room to improve her left hand. Scored with her jump shot but also converted some tough baskets off the bounce.

Ava Roberson
2026 6-1 C Ava Roberson – Dawson County – Redline
Did a good job sealing for deep post position and finishing with both hands. Has quality back to the basket moves which will continue to improve with quicker feet. Uses her size to wall up defensively. Ran the floor well. Will see big minutes as a junior in the Dawson County frontcourt.

Loren Mazarky2026 5-4 G Loren Mazarky – Rabun County – Team All In
Shooter knocked down outside shots. Used a compact repeatable stroke. Has the strength to post up smaller guards. Will see her game grow as her creativity with the ball improves. Footspeed is getting better and better.

Alayna Lindley
2026 5-6 G Alayna Lindley – Lumpkin County – PeAk
Made her presence felt as a floor spacer. Hit shots from the mid-range on pull-ups and also showcased range with her three-point shot. Has active hands on defense, poking away steals. Played with confidence.

Reagan Richardson
2027 6-0 F Reagan Richardson – Lumpkin County – PeAk
Has good size. Strong frame. Is able to anchor herself on the block and turn to a variety of post moves. Shows a target hand for lob passes when sealing inside. Was able to get to a scooping shot with her back to the basket, able to sneak it underneath the defender’s reach.

Dru Jeckewicz
2027 5-6 G Dru Jeckewicz – Midtown – Hoop Atlanta
I came away extremely impressed with Dru Jeckewicz, one of camp’s biggest stock risers. The rising sophomore is athletic and active. She is a playmaker that can attack off the dribble and find the open man by leaping in the air to deliver accurate passes. Dru fed her post players with one-handed entry feeds, showcasing the ability to use her off-hand to split the defense. Jeckewicz knocked down a handful of shots over camp and used her speed to force turnovers and score downhill. Dru feels like a missing piece for the Class 5A State Runner-Up. I like the agile guard’s upside.

Adelyn Thompson
2027 5-5 G Adelyn Thompson – Rabun County – FBC Dream Team Elite
Made a living with her three-point shot. Found a home in the corners and was able to bury threes when given space. Got to her one-dribble pull-up in the mid-range and also made an impact with her floater in traffic. Possesses the ability to fill it up from the perimeter. Has put in the work to play with confidence. Should enjoy a breakout season at Rabun County as a primary scoring option.

Jatiana Chambers2025 5-3 PG Jatiana Chambers – Dougherty – CAM Sports
True playmaker that looks to set up teammates. Sees the floor extremely well and can fit in tough passes through tight areas. On the smaller size, Chambers has the physical strength to not get pushed around but has to make sure she doesn’t get too deep into the defense where length can swallow her up. Consistency as a jump shooter and shoring up her left hand will help her reach her ceiling. One of South Georgia’s very best guards and one of the top passers in the state.


Sofia McNabb
2024 6-0 F Sofia McNabb – Rabun Gap – BCB
It’s hard to believe Sofia McNabb is still unsigned. McNabb was one of the most complete players at camp. She is a true mismatch at 6-foot tall. The forward handles the ball like a guard, able to grab rebounds and go coast-to-coast. Sofia is a physical rebounder that secures boards in traffic and can power up to finish with either hand through contact. McNabb’s versatility is highlighted with her athleticism and three-level scoring capabilities. Sofia can pull-up from beyond the arc and get downhill. She hustled on defense, coming from behind to breakup scoring opportunities. The multi-sport athlete has the physical tools, athleticism and skills to draw attention from all levels. Her signing will be a major boon for any program.

Eva Bishop
2025 5-10 PF Eva Bishop – Dawson County – Georgia Flames
Scored out of the pick-and-roll. Extremely strong post presence can bury defenders underneath the basket when sealing.  Finishes with both hands inside and knocked down jumpers from the high post. Tough-nosed rebounder. Improving her stamina and quickening her footwork will bode well for the future. Great student boasts a 4.26 GPA. D-II and D-III programs will be involved.

Maddie Siuta
2026 5-10 G Maddie Siuta – Dawson County – Redline
Big guard has the ability to go coast-to-coast and finish with either hand. Can play 1-4 and be used in a variety of ways to create mismatches. Tough to guard when her three-point shot is dropping. Uses her height well to see the floor and find the open man. Holds value as a switchable defender. First step explosion to the basket can elevate her consistency as a downhill driver.

Parker Whipple2026 5-7 G Parker Whipple – Lambert – Redline
High energy guard defends the ball very well with lateral quickness, able to limit straight-line drives. Does well at getting past her first defender and getting to the hoop where she can score through fouls. Outside shot is continuing to improve. Effort on the glass does not go unnoticed. Maintains a 4.1 GPA.

Ellison Steinhauer2026 5-9 G Ellison Steinhauer – Pickens – Southeast All-Stars
Smooth do-everything guard. Great footwork and high IQ. Knocks down threes and excels at getting to her spots in the mid-range. Crafty finisher uses long strides and her length to finish with both hands at the rim. Wiry, but has functional strength to absorb contact for And-1s. Disruptive defender. D-I level guard that will likely see some traction with her recruitment in short time.

Lily Denlein
2027 5-7 G Lily Denlein – Milton
Stood out as a catch-and-shoot three-point marksman. Understood spacing. Will be able to impact games in other ways as her off the dribble game grows with experience which will lead to even more confidence.

Alaya Wilson
2027 5-3 G Alaya Wilson – Archer – Lady Flames
Quick guard picked up the tempo with her speed. Had success as a penetrator that drew fouls downhill. Has the upside to become a consistent scorer as her motor continues to strengthen.

Audrey Lunsford
2027 5-9 G Audrey Lunsford – Elbert County – Winners United
Big guard that can play with a bit of a mean streak. Physical off the dribble when getting to the hoop. Can bump off smaller defenders and scores through contact. Has a pretty outside shot to pair with her tight handle. Mixed it up on the glass and blocked away shots. Looks like a future stat sheet stuffer that will go on to play in college.

Annaka Hembree
2028 5-7 G Annaka Hembree – Christian Heritage – Southern Starz 2028 Hembree
Coach’s daughter will make an immediate impact as a freshman. Will need to get stronger over the course of her career, but the agile guard is a smooth three-point shooter that can also attack off the dribble. Was calm with the ball in her hands. Saw the floor well as a drive-and-kick creator.

Maecee Crumley
2028 5-10 W Maecee Crumley – Stephens County – Georgia Generals
Good size on the perimeter. Shoots the ball well. Knocked down threes, mid-range jumpers and scored along the baseline from 15-feet. As camp wore on, Maecee became more comfortable with the pace of play. Grabbed rebounds and pushed the ball in transition. When the ball wasn’t in her hands, Crumley cut to open spaces. The long-armed shooter will provide versatility with the ability to play and defend multiple positions.


Avery Huffman
2025 5-5 G Avery Huffman – Denmark – Redline
Known for her three-point shooting, Huffman stood out with other aspects of her game. She did a nice job attacking the hoop in coast-to-coast scenarios. Avery ran the floor for easy baskets and displayed court vision to pair with her improved handle. Huffman played with pace and got after it defensively as a physical on-ball defender.

Annarose Tyre
2025 5-8 G Annarose Tyre – Lambert – Georgia Flames
Tyre emerged as one of camp’s top performers. The high energy guard did a little bit of everything on both ends of the floor. She set up teammates with her drive-and-kick penetration. Tyre sparked fastbreaks not only as a playmaker with the ball but by outlet passing to streaking teammates to get ahead of the defense. Annarose canned threes throughout the day and scored with both hands on her slices to the rim. Hard-playing guard also forced turnovers with her persistent pesky defense, often times defending other team’s best players. D-II, D-III and NAIA programs will do their due diligence on the rising senior throughout the summer.

Jessalyn Tamplin2025 5-8 G Jessalyn Tamplin – Flowery Branch – EOTO FBC
Lefty can play 2-4 depending on the lineup. Has good physical size. Was able to clear rebounds and advance the ball up the floor. Was at her best as a spot up shooter. Hustled on defense and consistently made the extra pass on offense.

Tamera Rudolph
2026 5-6 G Tamera Rudolph – Grayson – FBC Legacy
Tammy had a great camp. Often overshadowed at Grayson, Rudolph would have been a starter on almost any other team in the state and has a bright future ahead. Tamera plays very hard and doesn’t go through the motions or play it too cool. She is an active on-ball defender that hustles and gets on the floor. Rudolph has a smooth release on her jump shot and is a dangerous three-point shooter. Tammy ran the floor for easy buckets and showcased the ability to initiate offense in transition, both as a playmaker and as a scorer, able to finish with her left hand. Rudolph is a well-rounded prospect that will get better and better with more experience. Don’t sleep on her.

Caroline Young
2026 5-11 W Caroline Young – Milton – ATL Bucks
The long and lanky swingman was all over the floor, crashing in for rebounds, running in transition and defending multiple positions. Young attacked from all levels, shooting the three, attacking off the dribble and utilizing a floater in the paint. Her athleticism and activity make her an impactful rebounder. Continuing to get stronger will help her finish through contact. Young played off two feet inside. Caroline’s diverse inside-out game will only expand.

Tori Epps
2026 5-9 W Tori Epps – Heritage-Catoosa – Thunder Basketball
Scrappy hustler let her defense spark her offense. Got more aggressive as the day went on. Used a spin move to get to the hoop. Spent time as a lead guard, bringing the ball up the floor. Had confidence shooting the pull-up three. Rebounded well from her guard position.

Libby Knott
2027 5-9 W Libby Knott – Atlanta Girls School – Hoop Atlanta
Did a good job cutting without the ball and also finding cutters as a passer. Good size on the perimeter with the ability to play multiple positions. Defended inside and out and competed for 50/50 balls. Attacked defenses off the dribble and with her jump shot.

Deyva Davis
2027 5-8 G Deyva Davis – Milton
The quick lightning bolt of a guard played within herself. She used her energy to turn over opponents and rotated over to block shots from behind. Davis hit some threes and utilized her speed to penetrate. Adding more strength to her wiry frame will help. She will continue to improve with more game reps against stiff competition.

Makayla Watts2027 5-6 G Makayla Watts – Lamar County – H2O
Made the most out of camp. Athletic guard plays bigger than her height. Did a great job getting rebounding position, blocking out bigger opponents to secure boards. Earned her team second chance opportunities. Possesses long arms and a quick first step. Effective defender has a nose for deflections and steals.

Kerris Collins
2028 5-9 G Kerris Collins – Marietta – S.H.E.
Big guard made a difference as a rebounder. Shot the ball from distance and the mid-range. Plays at her own speed. Has a chance to get quicker over the course of her career. Handles the ball well and fits in at the varsity level with her physicality.


Emma Lightsey
2025 5-5 G Emma Lightsey – White County – Georgia Flames
Knockdown shooter made over 100 threes as a junior and piled in more at camp. Quick trigger. Loves the side-step and step-back three. Moves well without the ball to get open. Snuck onto the offensive glass, reading caroms off the rim. Is a quick-footed on-ball defender. Is able to play both on and off the ball.

Claire Carlson
2026 5-9 G Claire Carlson – Cherokee Bluff – Redline
Gifted passer with highly advanced court vision. Always makes the extra pass. Has good zip on her outlet passes. Rarely gets sped up. Methodical with the ball as she dissects defenses. Has grown since her freshman year, now a long-armed athlete. Lets offense come to her. Is able to turn corners and score in a variety of ways. Dangerous perimeter shooter. Impacts games on both ends of the floor.

Lyla Griffith
2026 5-8 W Lyla Griffith – Cherokee – Redline
Hustler does the dirty work but also can pack a punch on offense. Digs down on the post for steals. Physical rebounder embraces contact. Was able to grab rebounds and go coast-to-coast. Attacked with a floater and cashed in on catch-and-shoot threes. Versatile enough to play 2-4. Plays bigger than her height.

Hailey Wortmann2026 6-1 C Hailey Wortmann – Midtown – Hoop Atlanta
Earned high marks for her help side defense. Battled for rebounds, grabbing them at their highest point. Agility and vertical are still improving – showed tremendous progress from Year 1 to Year 2. Was able to finish around the rim with drop steps and was active in the paint scoring from 5-feet. Best basketball is ahead of her.

Trinity Grant
2026 6-4 C Trinity Grant – Eagle’s Landing – Southeast All-Stars
Elite size. Vacuums up rebounds. Must keep the ball high when securing boards and going up for putbacks. Showed promise with her drop step in the paint. Starting to get more comfortable performing post moves with pesky guards swarming her. Quickening her footwork will allow her to make moves before double teams come. Is an intimidating rim protector that alters shots even when she doesn’t block them. Has a promising future as a double-double machine.

Kelsey Arp
2027 5-6 G Kelsey Arp – Armuchee – BCB
Solid athlete that can create with the ball. Got to her pull-up jumper from 10-feet and was able to bank in mid-range jumpers. Has room to grow with her left hand. Was an aggressive on-ball defender that moved her feet well.

Karlee Law
2027 5-7 W Karlee Law – Jefferson – FBC Dream Team Elite
Southpaw had a huge day, one of camp’s more impressive stock risers. Such a diverse and unique skill set. Big, strong guard that can do damage inside and out. At first glance looks like more of a forward, but is a true perimeter player with how well she attacks off the dribble and her overall speed with the ball. Powerful getting downhill with a bowling ball mentality that overwhelms opponents with her strength. Never gets knocked off her line. Impressive playmaker that whips in one-handed missiles to shooters in the corners. Is a mismatch with her ability to go into the post to score against smaller defenders and will torch bigger defenders that try to guard her on the perimeter. Utilizing her right hand will make her even tougher to stop. Defensively, Law is strong enough to hold her own when guarding posts and is quick enough to hinder most guards. She took pride in guarding other teams’ best players.

Allie Holden
2028 5-5 G Allie Holden – North Hall – Redline
Found her calling card on defense, pressuring the ball and shooting gaps to convert turnovers into layups. Never took any plays off and competed at a high level. Showcased her offense as a catch-and-shoot scorer that could also get downhill with her right hand.

Samiyah Gregg
2028 5-3 G Samiyah Gregg – Newton
Quick guard pushed the pace and found opportunities to score as a driver and was able to find shooters along the perimeter. Showed quickness laterally as an on-ball defender.


Jesstynie Scott
2025 5-8 G Jesstynie Scott – Sumter County – Porter Sports
The top overall prospect in camp with a handful of D-I offers already to her name, Jesstynie Scott did not disappoint. Her athleticism and quickness with the ball were unparallelled. Scott got wherever she wanted to go without having to force things. Her quick first step and ability to see the floor resulted in buckets for herself and teammates. Scott dropped in soft touch passes to her posts and thrived as a drive-and-kick creator who pushed the tempo throughout camp. Jess netted mid-range pull-ups and got to the rim. While the ball was often always in her hands, when it wasn’t, Scott remained active as a cutter. Her impact extended to the defensive side of the ball, setting the tone as an aggressive on-ball defender that forced turnovers. Scott showed what a top guard in Georgia looks like.

Allie Duke
2025 5-11 W Allie Duke – Calhoun – ATL Bucks
Knockdown three-point shooter was able to space the floor, especially from the corners. Scored out of the pick-and-roll and is the perfect player for pick-and-pops. Has the ability to go into the post for tough buckets. Guard skills and agility have improved every season. Continuing to diversify her game off the bounce will make her even more dangerous on offense. Can be utilized as a 4 or a 5 in small-ball lineups thanks to versatile size and ability to rebound. Intriguing prospect for schools to track her senior season.

Aliza Chastain
2025 5-4 G Aliza Chastain – Gilmer – North GA Summit
Three-point shooter got hot and scored in bunches. When ran off the line, she found success with scoop layups and drew fouls. Played fundamental help side defense. Has enough foot speed to become even more of a creator with the ball in her hands.

Amelia Brown
2025 5-7 SG Amelia Brown – South Forsyth – Georgia Flames
Three-point shooter has a quick release and has been improving as a playmaker. Sitting lower in stance will help her move laterally to keep opponents out of the paint. Received high marks for her fundamentals, very sound with the ball as she limited turnovers. Has experience playing both on and off the ball. Catch-and-shoot skill is among her best.

Courtney Bray
2026 5-4 G Courtney Bray – Warren County
Has a bit of a hitch in her shot, but successfully opened up the defense with her three-point shooting. Moved well without the ball and was an active defender that got her hands on a lot of steals. Was able to beat her man downhill in one-one-one situations.

Alexia Davis
2026 5-5 G Alexia Davis – Midtown – Hoop Atlanta
Used pump fakes very well, catching and immediately getting defenders out of position with her moves. Hit some shots inside the arc but really made a difference with her effort level on defense. Wasn’t afraid to press up on ball handlers and stayed tight with an aggressive mindset. Holds a 4.2 GPA.

Carly Bramlett
2026 5-8 F Carly Bramlett – Christian Heritage
Inside-out combo-forward. Can hit the three and was able to attack off the dribble with a step-through floater. Handles the ball well enough to go coast-to-coast, dribbling confidently with her left hand. Physical presence plays bigger than her size. Getting lower on block outs will help her drive out bigger opponents. Did a nice job walling up when defending the post. Strong in the classroom with a 4.2 GPA.

Tamia Tomlinson
2027 5-8 G Tamia Tomlinson – Alpharetta – Team Elite
Confidently shot the ball from the perimeter. Strongly built guard with sneaky good length. Was able to deliver on-the-money bounce passes in transition to streaking teammates. Has upside as a versatile defender and will get even better with more game-speed reps.

Katie Bennett
2027 5-7 W Katie Bennett – North Forsyth – The Horton Project
Showed off a strong base as she was able to battle inside for rebounds at just 5-foot-7. Carved out space and scored around the rim with her left hand. Worked hard for post position and flashed upside as a perimeter threat.

Zara Gosse2027 5-11 C Zara Gosse – North Hall – Southeast United
Ran the floor for easy baskets. Takes her time to gather herself before powering up inside. Extremely strong. Doesn’t get pushed off her spot. Is an effective rebounder and a tough interior defender. Very physical and is not afraid to throw her body around. Post footwork is developing nicely.


Breelyn Wood
2025 5-10 W Breelyn Wood – Tallulah Falls – FBC Next Up
Like the progress from last year to this year. Wiry, active athlete has diversified her offensive game. Has improved her aggressiveness off the dribble. Showcased improved strength as a finisher downhill and has added more consistency and range to her outside shot, able to knock down threes. Confident with the ball and saw the floor well. Uses her length to rebound in traffic and holds upside as a versatile defender that can guard in the post and on the perimeter.

Ella Bekkerus
2025 5-6 G Ella Bekkerus – South Forsyth – FBC Legacy
Heady ball handler did a good job valuing possessions. Has a strong frame that allows her to ward off defenders. Shoots the ball well from beyond the arc. Made some plays off the bounce, getting to her floater along the baseline.

Sinclair Richman
2025 5-8 SG Sinclair Richman – Midtown – Zone 6 Celtics
Versatile scorer. Good size on the perimeter. Knocked down shots in catch-and-shoot settings from distance. Is a sneaky good playmaker, able to create off the bounce using a crossover to get downhill. Rebounds well from her guard position. Can be used in a variety of roles, but probably most effective as either a 2 or a 3. Elite academic student with a 4.6 GPA and 1500 on the SAT.

Kylie Watkins
2025 6-0 F Kylie Watkins – White County – Southeast All-Stars
Patient with the ball. Uses her length exceptionally well on both ends of the floor. Can be moved around offensively, capable of serving on the wing, in the high post and on the block. Liked getting to her floater in traffic. Earned second chance opportunities and altered shots on defense. Sees the floor well for a forward. Active in the paint and plays with functional strength. Netted a 1210 on the SAT.

Kenlee Hedge
2027 5-6 W Kenlee Hedge – Rabun County – Redline
Did good work in the paint and along the baseline. Quality athlete with a strong frame. Crashed the offensive glass for putbacks and showed confidence in shooting the corner three. Drew fouls and finished through contact.

Kate Stewart
2027 5-10 W Kate Stewart – Milton
Lanky defender guarded inside and out. Managed deflections and picked up a handful of steals. Is a good enough athlete and has enough ball skills to split time between wing and forward. Knocked down a pretty turnaround jumper out of the post.

Ella Bleu Leverett
2027 5-11 C Ella Bleu Leverett – Lamar County
Dominant post presence was among camp’s brightest breakout stars. Physical low block scorer with great footwork. Loved to use her pivot for up-and-unders. Showcased a variety of overall moves with her back to the basket. Had a strong drop step that cleared out space using her elbows and quick feet to maneuver around defenders. Will need to get more comfortable using her left hand as she often scored with her right hand on the left side. Impressive feel for the game at a young age. Was possibly the most advanced low block scorer in camp.

Jaliyah Hargrove
2027 5-9 W Jaliyah Hargrove – Hancock Central – Bostic Next Level
Powerful combo-forward showed the ability to play inside and out. Had a knack for getting to her left hand downhill. Absorbs contact and is strong enough to complete And-1s. Played well out of the screen-and-roll.

Kailyn Chapman
2027 5-2 G Kailyn Chapman – South Effingham – Effingham Bulldogs
Speedy little guard made things happen off the dribble. Knocked down some pull-up threes and ran the floor for transition hoops. Has room for growth when it comes to using her left hand. Served as a gnatty on-ball defender with quick reactions times.

Asiah Thompson
2027 5-8 G Asiah Thompson – Kell – S.H.E.
Has good physical size in the backcourt. Can play multiple positions with her sturdy frame. Did good work in the paint as a rebounder that could convert second chances. Finished with her left hand. Versatile defender can muscle up in the post and is long enough to make it tough for guards on the perimeter.


Kaleigh Beaver
2025 6-0 F Kaleigh Beaver – Towns County
Caught the attention of college coaches thanks to her effort. Springy forward has great hands. Crashes in for offensive rebounds. Shot the ball with confidence, netting a handful of jumpers and floaters. Range starting to expand to three-point line. Was able to play both inside and out as a combo-forward. Tightening her handle could help her play more on the wing. Used up-and-under moves on the block and drew fouls consistently.

Ella Kate Walraven
2025 5-6 G Ella Kate Walraven – Sonoraville – FBC Dynasty
Tough-nosed grinder. Hustles non-stop and plays much bigger than her size. Very good rebounder for a guard. Does the dirty work and collects garbage points by outworking others. Takes pride in her individual defense. Does the little things well. Delivers strong two-handed chest passes. Blue-collar winning player gets the very most out of her game. Strong student holds a 4.0 GPA with a 1210 SAT.

Ryleigh Murphy
2025 5-7 SG Ryleigh Murphy – Banks County – Southeast United
Burries threes from all around the perimeter. Has improved her off the dribble game. Staying aggressive and engaged will help her reach her potential. Is an underrated defender and rebounder. Does a good job cutting without the ball.

Jaylan Moore2026 6-0 C Jaylan Moore – Calhoun – Wood Elite
Scored out of the pick-and-roll while keeping the ball high. Very effective rebounder. Moves well for her age and size. Creates fouls in the paint and has a nice touch from the foul line. Has a chance to really take off once she identifies a go-to move with her back to the basket. Good upside for college coaches to keep track of.

Kyla Cantey
2026 5-9 G Kyla Cantey – River Ridge – Explosive Elites
Earned rave reviews for her dynamic play. Wiry lefty gets downhill using long strides. The game has slowed down considerably for her, able to create for others using her advanced court vision to whistle in assists. Controls the tempo, understanding when to push the pace and when to slow down. Three-level scorer found buckets from beyond the arc and in the mid-range off the dribble. Competed hard the entire day and set the tone for her team, leading by example. Good island defender closing out with a high hand, quick enough to move her feet and wall up without fouling using her length to contest shots. D-I and D-II programs are tracking the rising junior.

Jace Sanderson
2027 5-9 G Jace Sanderson – Fannin County – Explosive Elites
Shot the three-ball well. Tons of natural tools to work with. Lanky athlete has a smooth release. Continuing to add muscle to her frame will help over time. Has the activity level to become an impactful defender that can guard all across the perimeter. Delivered accurate one-handed passes to shooters, displaying her confidence with the ball.

Natalie Turner
2027 5-7 W Natalie Turner – Loganville – DTE All In
Relentless competitor. Attacks off the dribble and is good at drawing fouls. Likes to get on the glass and push the ball coast-to-coast after snagging rebounds. Decision making and outside shot will continue to improve with more reps. Good length and athleticism. Ran the floor for baskets. Valuable asset on both ends of the court.

AddyBeth Owens
2027 5-4 G Addy Beth Owens – Rabun County – EOTO All In
Sneaky good defender makes splash plays. Lulls inbounders to sleep and will steal passes in the backcourt. Rotates over on defense with active hands. Digs out steals and is a good shot blocker for her size. Crafty downhill attacker loves to use a hesitation move before getting to her eurostep. Has a knack for getting to the foul line. Improving her poise against aggressive on-ball pressure and extending her shooting range will help her excel at the next level. Knocked down shots from the mid-range and utilized her floater. Has improved as a playmaker off the bounce since the start of the season.

Loren Withrite
2027 5-9 G Loren Withrite – Chattahoochee – Wood Elite
Score-first guard likes to get to the hoop and can shoot the three. Long, athletic frame. Has room to grow as a drive-and-kick playmaker. Being able to handle pressure will help her defeat defenses as both a scorer and facilitator. Holds upside as a defender. Is agile enough to guard 1-3.


Reese Murphy
2025 5-8 W Reese Murphy – Banks County – Southeast United
Hit shots from all levels. Netted baseline jumpers and threes from the wing. Picked up full court and stole the ball away from rebounders for layups. Has developed into a good rebounder herself. Moves well without the ball and plays with a subtle toughness.

Chassity McCammon2025 6-4 C Chassity McCammon – Milton – ATL Bucks
Vocal defensive anchor shouted out screens. Used her size to get deep post position. Stuck with it on the glass and earned multiple opportunities to score. Powered in And-1s throughout the day. Moves well for her size and is only getting more agile. Has great reach, able to wall up and block shots without having to jump or foul.

Devin Bockman
2026 5-5 G Devin Bockman – Midtown – Hoop Atlanta
Sparkplug plays hard on both ends of the floor. Plays at a fast pace but doesn’t get out of control. Quickly emerging as one of the class’s better shooters. Stop-and-pop game from the mid-range but also buries threes off the dribble and off the catch. Has major experience handling the ball against full court pressure. Uses her speed to get downhill. Steady playmaker sees the floor well and can deliver assists on the move. Rips away steals as an on-ball defender. Class 5A State Runner-Up has serious momentum heading into travel ball and is becoming a household name in Georgia.

Anna Coy
2026 5-6 G Anna Coy – Haralson County – Champions
Got to her lefty floater, using her strong frame to shield off defenders. Rebounded well from the guard position. Has good court vision and can hurt defenses with her outside shot when hunting her offense.

Skylar Levell
2027 6-0 F Skylar Levell – Newton – Team Elite Hubbard
High upside forward. Strong frame but not just a banger. Very athletic and handles the ball like a guard. Uses her toughness and size to collect rebounds and is a threat to go coast-to-coast. Scores around the basket and knocked down the baseline jumper. Creates mismatches with her mobility and ability to put the ball on the deck. Able to play 3-5. With three more years to develop, don’t be surprised if Levell blossoms into one of the state’s top frontcourt players.

Janiyah Blevins
2027 5-4 G Janiyah Blevins – Bradwell Institute – Skills Sports Academy
Quick playmaker caused issues with her speed throughout camp. Broke down defenders and got consistent penetration. Was able to find the open man off the dribble. Plays at a rapid pace. Has pretty jump shot, capable of cashing in on threes. High energy on-ball defender.

Nicole Turner
2027 5-7 W Nicole Turner – Loganville – DTE All In
Athletic hard-playing rising sophomore can serve multiple positions. Hustled back on defense to poke away steals and block shots. Was able to put her head down and get to the rim with a quick first step. Brings infectious energy.

Taylor Clark
2027 5-8 G Taylor Clark – Lakeview Academy – DTE All In
Picks up full court and harasses ball handlers, extremely effective when she’s able to move her feet and not foul. Lefty has great quickness sideline to sideline, able to cut off and turn her man multiple times before advancing to the frontcourt. Feasts on live-ball turnovers, converting them to layups. Has improved her right hand, now able to finish downhill through contact. As the range on her outside shot grows, as will her stock. Not many players play harder –especially on defense – than Clark does.

Ali Jae Bull
2028 5-5 G Ali Jae Bull – Chestatee – Redline
Tough-nosed youngster crashes in for rebounds and has the speed and handle to go coast-to-coast through traffic. Earned high marks for her IQ as one of the youngest players in camp. Knocked down some perimeter shots and didn’t back down from any defensive challenges.  

PRO Spring Showdown Girls Top Performers

Madison Moody
2026 5-5 G Madison Moody – Cherokee
The stop-and-pop microwave scoring of Madison Moody was on full display at Clayton State. Moody burns the nets with her three-point shot. She is accurate both off the catch and off the dribble. Madison is a very good athlete who gets good lift on her jumper. She plays with balance and is a threat to go on scoring binges once she sees one shot drop. Madison implements deep floaters and is a good outlet passer who ignites fastbreaks. Don’t be surprised if Moody explodes her junior season, emerging as Cherokee’s number one scoring option.

Leah DeWitt
2028 5-7 G Leah DeWitt – Marietta
As camp wore on, Leah DeWitt got stronger. SEC schools are already recruiting the dynamic guard that can both score and pass at an elite level. Leah sees the floor exceptionally well and has the ball on a string when breaking down the defense. DeWitt pushes the ball in transition and understands how to create for others, doing a good job of sucking in the defense before kicking out to shooters in their shot pocket. Leah has deep three-point range herself and is a crafty downhill scorer. Aside from her offense, I came away impressed with Leah’s hustle and effort on defense, picking up full court. Marietta’s 2028 class is special, headlined by Coach Derrick DeWitt’s daughter.

Alana DeWitt
2029 5-8 G Alana DeWitt – Marietta
Alana has shot up since I last saw her, growing even taller than her older sister as her frame has slimmed up and become wiry with upside to grow even more. Alana is a deadeye shooter with a lightning quick release. Her form is pretty with no wasted motion. DeWitt has the length to project into becoming an above average defender. JV teams better start game planning now for the rising eighth grader.

Tracy Wakefield
2028 5-6 G Tracy Wakefield – Marietta
Tracy looked different from most guards in camp. Even though she’s just a rising freshman, Wakefield was easily one of the most athletic and agile players in the gym. She plays with a pep in her step and can change speeds, pushing the ball in the open floor but able to throttle down when nothing was there. Wakefield handled the ball well and found success weaving through the defense in transition. When the ball wasn’t in her hands, Tracy continuously moved until she was open.

Jessica Fields
2025 6-1 F Jessica Fields – Mt. Paran
Absolutely dominant as she was all throughout the season en route to capturing her third-straight state title, Fields controlled the paint with her length and toughness. Jessica blocks everything in sight, using her reach and leaping ability to challenge everything. Fields showcased her growing offensive arsenal throughout camp, rebounding and pushing the ball in transition. She utilized a spin move in traffic for buckets and was knocking down jumpers with range out to the three-point line. High Major and Mid-Major schools are all over Fields. She is Georgia’s best interior defender – a true game wrecker.

Kaylie Zirger
2026 5-7 G Kaylie Zirger – Duluth
Kaylie was deceptively good at getting to the hoop. She was dangerous on the perimeter not only as a driver but as a shooter that could hit step-back threes. Zirger did well as a ball handler, using release dribbles to avoid pressure.

Lillie Harris
2026 5-3 G Lillie Harris – Paulding County
Lillie made her mark on camp with her outside shooting. Harris filled it up from distance but also showed the ability to put the ball on the floor and make plays for others. She can swing the momentum of games quickly with her three-point range.

Maya Crawford
2024 6-0 C Maya Crawford – Central-Macon
College programs have their eyes on Maya Crawford. She is a big, strong and physical interior presence that not only protects the rim and rebounds, but can score with her back to the basket as well. Crawford has a powerful drop step and does a good job earning second chance points.

Jaden Young2025 5-8 G Jaden Young – Morgan County
Jaden continues to improve. Every time I see her, she gets better with the ball in her hands. She displayed the ability to knock down threes off the dribble from deep range. Her soccer quickness benefits her on the hardwood as she is able to change directions and use bursts of speed to get to where she wants to go.

Addi Petitt2025 5-7 G Addi Petitt – Loganville Christian
The lefty scored from all three levels at camp. She was able to get downhill, attack from the mid-range and let it fly from deep. Petitt has a knack for scoring. She showed some grit on defense and was active on the backboards.
