Class 7A

Seniors 6-foot-5 Toneari Lane (Shiloh) and 6-foot-4 Caleb Murphy (Norcross) shift over to Grayson to play with Atlanta Celtics teammate Deivon Smith. Lane is a tough-nosed two-way player that can score at all three levels. The D-I swingman averaged 20 points and 7.3 rebounds per game at Shiloh. Murphy was among the state’s biggest stock risers and chipped in 8.8 points per game as a junior while picking up a handful of offers.

5-foot-11 junior Jason Edwards will make an immediate impact at Parkview after transferring in from Grayson where he was buried on the depth chart. Edwards has shined during the offseason as a wired-to-score guard that’s capable of taking over games. Like older brother Nick, Edwards has a knack for scoring and will likely become one of Parkview’s most reliable options. If Edwards can fit into the Panthers’ system and continue to score the ball at the rate he’s done so over the summer, he could be considered one of the most improved players in Georgia.

Trying to follow in the footsteps of recent Kennesaw State-signee Terrell Burden, 5-foot-9 senior Myson Lowe is the next undersized guard that will have a chance to flourish under Coach James Gwyn. Lowe is a crafty scorer that can help Campbell maintain their competitiveness in Region 2-AAAAAAA. He has bounced around multiple private schools and will try to leave a lasting mark on Campbell.

Class 6A

Looking for an opportunity to make an impact, 6-foot-4 junior wing Jaylen Jackson has a chance to stick at Douglas County after playing rotational minutes at Westlake. Jackson is a bouncy athlete that is a threat for putback dunks and highlight slams. He can create his own shot and has a nice first step when getting to the basket. Jackson should vie for a starting spot for the Tigers and give Coach Hollis Bethea another jumping jack to help protect the rim alongside Omarion Smith.

After a wasted junior season in which he was ruled ineligible, Terrence Edwards hits the transfer market for his third school, this time trying to latch on at Tucker after stops at Miller Grove and Southwest DeKalb. When the 6-foot-5 senior wing is on the floor he is extremely effective. Edwards can guard multiple positions and has a versatile offensive game and an aggressiveness when hunting his points.  Edwards has picked up offers from East Carolina and Jacksonville State over the Spring and will quickly refresh the memory of the state of Georgia about what he can do on the court. He joins Jermontae Hill to form one of the better wing duos in Georgia.

6-foot-2 junior guard RJ Noord heads to his third school in three years after starting at Columbia and playing at Greenforest last season. Noord is a physically gifted playmaker that gets downhill and into the paint. His toughness, motor and competitiveness makes him one of the 2021 class’ top dogs. Noord has a chance to take over the reigns of the Heritage-Conyers program and put up some productive numbers.

Class 5A

 

Class 4A 

Class 3A

6-foot-6 junior Matt Cleveland leaves Cambridge for Pace Academy to learn under Head Coach Sharman White and to play with HYPE Hawks teammate Cole Middleton. The burgeoning blue chip prospect is a three-star recruit with High Major offers. Cleveland earned All-State Honorable Mention honors last season in Class 6A. Cleveland is a long, smooth wing that is progressing toward his full potential.

Back to his middle school stomping grounds, Demetrius Glenn is back in Hart County for his senior season. The 6-foot three-point specialist will be in a position to excel right away with the Class 3A State Runner-Up Bulldogs who graduate a large senior class. Glenn will slot in next to junior Shone Webb and freshman Tahj Johnson to form a three-man nucleus with upside.

Class 2A

Class 1A

Chance Thacker moves from Lambert to Providence Christian to follow his father Joey, who was named new head coach. Thacker is a savvy 6-foot-3 sophomore that has logged big minutes against elite competition already. Thacker is a jack-of-all-trades type player, but playing for a team that won just three games last year, Thacker will be asked to carry the load offensively and make everyone around him better.
