The Sandy’ Spiel Spring Showcase sold out for a second consecutive year, hosting 80 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 Chestatee High School to evaluate prospective student-athletes. With the help of our established eight-coach staff, here are our player evaluations sorted by team.


Lucy Hood2024 5-9 PG Lucy Hood – Rabun County – Southeast All-Stars
First Team All-State playmaker looked to facilitate throughout camp. Deferred for most of the day but picked up her offense as camp wore on. Is a talented drive-and-kick passer. Can play both guard spots. Has an accurate jump shot with three-point range. Improved this year as a downhill scorer. Has room to become even more of an aggressive driver, but has to be careful not to push off and over extend her off arm against tight ball pressure. Has developed into a strong on-ball defender with quick hands. Pokes away steals. Needs to make sure she doesn’t get too overly aggressive and pick up silly fouls far away from the hoop. Earned her first D-I offer from Western Carolina last month.

Jenai Mumphery2027 5-6 G Jenai Mumphery – Tri-Cities – NSG Wolfpack
Was mightily impressive as one of camp’s youngest players. Rising freshman quickly turned heads with her three-point shot. Lefty has great form on her jumper and buried multiple threes throughout the day. Did the little things well, like jab-stepping immediately on the catch to freeze her defender for a split second to gain extra inches of space before firing. Runs the floor well and isn’t afraid to put the ball down and get to the rack. Quick ball handler will continue to improve as she gets stronger. Could make a significant impact at the varsity level from Day 1.

Trinity Hill2023 5-5 G Trinity Hill – Tift County – Porter Sports

Sharpshooting swingman can play either the 2 or 3. Could serve as a small-ball stretch-four in spurts. Understands where she is best at offensively as a floor spacer, but can occasionally sneak in for offensive rebounds and points in the paint. Providing physicality when she’s around the basket will help her expand her value.

Riley Simmons2024 6-0 F Riley Simmons – Cherokee – Wood Elite
As she did last year, Riley Simmons scorched the nets again from the opening moments of camp, immediately sinking a three in her first game which was a sign of things to come. Knockdown shooter is a premier stretch-four. Hit multiple threes throughout camp and played with great confidence. Once she opened up the defense she was able to showcase her improved off the bounce game, getting to the rim using spin moves. Did a good job getting on the offensive glass and finishing in traffic. Three-level scorer is a major mismatch offensively. D-II programs should start getting involved. Could be a significant stock-riser this offseason with a productive year of travel ball.

Breelyn Wood2025 5-8 W Breelyn Wood – Tallulah Falls – SBC
Versatile combo-forward that can play both on the wing and on the block. Athletic build with long arms. Capable of defending multiple positions in the frontcourt.

Made her presence felt on the offensive glass. Young forward plays much bigger than her size. Uses her body well when positioning herself for garbage points. Stepped outside multiple times to shoot the baseline jumper. Conditioning will help her stay on the floor longer, but when she was out there, she was effective.

Syriana Childers2028 5-2 G Syriana Childers – Parkview – Queens of Basketball
Camp was a valuable experience for Syriana, one of the smallest and youngest players in attendance. Seeing the speed of the game will only benefit her in the future. The rising eighth grader got good reps against aggressive on-ball defense. Childers didn’t try to do too much and provided effort on defense and ball movement on offense.


Denver Arnold2023 5-7 PG Denver Arnold – Valdosta – Porter Sports
One of just a few unsigned seniors in camp, Denver Arnold was great. She provided uncomfortable on-ball pressure defense and was tough to guard on offense. Arnold lit it up with her three-point shot, hitting jumpers off the dribble and with great consistency. She was among the very best shooters in camp. When she got downhill, Arnold was a smart decision maker as she found the open man. Coming all the way up from Valdosta, Denver was one of camp’s brightest standouts. She holds an offer from Henry Ford College. Arnold would be a great late pick up for NAIA/D-III/JUCOs.

One of the best kept secrets in Georgia. Made a statement last year at camp and was outstanding again this year. Truly elite shot blocker. Gobbles up everything that comes her way and blocks shots without having to jump. High-level rebounder is a vacuum inside. Defensive ace is a load on offense as well. Stepped outside to hit the mid-range jumper and corner three. Strong with her back to the basket. Uses an under control drop step and also implements a crisp up-and-under. Pelote once again drew rave reviews as being polite and coachable. Holds a 3.5 GPA. Pelote is a slam dunk at the D-II level. While she is a solid post scorer, if for some reason her offensive game doesn’t translate to college, her floor is still so high with how elite of a rim protector she is. If she continues to improve, there is no reason why Pelote can’t develop into a double-double machine in college and be near the top of the conference in blocked shots. Buy stock now.

Emeri Billings2025 5-3 PG Emeri Billings – Jefferson – L.E. Elite
A full-year of starting at the varsity level has done Billings good. Looks much more confident against pressure. Continuing to cut down on her turnovers as her decision making improves.

Lydia Robillard is a name we may be hearing a lot of over the next seven years.
