Justyce McCoy2026 5-6 G Justyce McCoy – Brookwood
Assigned to the 16U team, Justyce McCoy shined in practice vs. the 17s, showcasing a consistent ability to attack the basket and finish with both hands. McCoy’s impact started defensively, picking up well above the three-point line as she forced opposing ball handlers to start their offensive sets much farther out than wanted. Justyce dug out steals and got on the floor for loose balls. On offense, McCoy used changes of speed to get to the hoop and mixed in some mid-range pull-ups. Justyce is a cornerstone for a rebuilding Brookwood program.

Emeri Billings2025 5-4 PG Emeri Billings – Jefferson
Emeri was among the leaders in sprints every time FBC NextUp was lined up on the sideline. Her leadership afront the pack translated to her play on the floor, the lead guard making things happen as both a scorer and facilitator. Billings drilled threes throughout the day but also got others involved on drive-and-kick chances.

Caroline Beavin2025 5-8 G Caroline Beavin – North Gwinnett
First in nearly every sprint, Caroline Beavin was another rising senior that made it a point to lead by example by setting the pace. Caroline is on the precipice of cementing herself as a D-II prospect. She is a good athlete that moves her feet well when guarding on the perimeter. She has strong legs which gives her the lift to pull-up from deep beyond the three-point line off the dribble. Beavin scores downhill and is also savvy passer that delivers on-the-money bounce passes to backdoor cutters. Maintaining consistency is Beavin’s key, something the Co-Region 7-7A Player of the Year has improved upon each season.

Kenzie Wyman2025 5-8 G Kenzie Wyman – Lassiter
The versatile lefty can be used in a variety of ways. She opens up the floor with her three-point shot. Kenzie has the ball skills to serve as a big guard, able to take advantage of smaller opponents with her strength. Wyman has a knack for filling up the box score, chipping in as a rebounder, facilitator and defender. Kenzie visited Columbus State earlier this month. Her blistering three-point shooting this spring has risen her stock.

Dynesty Putman2025 5-6 G Dynesty Putman – Lakeview Academy
No one could stay in front of Dynesty on Wednesday night. Putman is a true downhill attacking guard. She loves to get to her spin move to finish her quick, decisive drives. Putman’s speed and first step give her an advantage whether it be dashing to the basket in transition or sliding her feet to limit penetration as an on-ball defender. While Putman’s slashing may be her most notable skill, she has proven to also be a threat as a catch-and-shoot three-point shooter from the corners.

Julie Azeltine2025 5-8 SG Julie Azeltine – Oconee County
Julie has been one of the steadiest stock risers in the state over the past 12 months, going from unknown to Class 3A Most Improved Player, jumping from 7.5 points per game to 16 a night as a junior. Azeltine plays hard and is vocal on the floor. She nets threes and can also get to her spots in the mid-range. When defenders close out too hard on her, Azeltine can coolly attack the baseline for layups. Julie brings energy and has some dog in her.
