Class 1A

SO Chance Thacker – 6’3″ 165 lbs – (Lambert to Providence Christian)
SR Chad Berry Jr. – 6’1” 160 lbs – (Early County to Seminole County)

 

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 

A tremendous dual-sport athlete, 6-foot-3 senior Juke Boozer leaves Rockmart for Cartersville after averaging 11.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 3.8 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. Boozer helped the Yellow Jackets to a state runner-up finish in football and a Sweet 16 berth in basketball. Boozer should be among Coach Mike Tobin’s top options next year after the Hurricanes’ top two scorers have graduated.

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.

Class 2A

At 6-foot-6, junior Jamichael Stillwell provides great length inside for South Atlanta, coming over from Region 6 rival Douglass. Stillwell is still a little raw in areas but he competes on the glass and has great upside on the defensive end. He needs to improve his footwork and his ability to finish through traffic, but Stillwell is an impactful player at the Class 2A level.

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.

LakePoint Showcase notes

Young Guards Shine

Tyrease Jones2021 5-10 PG Tyrease Jones (Brunswick/Team Next Up): Tyrease Jones stole the show on Sunday with his ability to score in bunches. Jones came out red-hot, scoring 13 of his team’s first 18 points before finishing with a game-high 30 in electric fashion in a 73-47 win over SBT. The wired-to-score shooter nailed seven threes and scored at all three levels. Jones even collected 6 rebounds to go with his offensive outburst. The microwave scorer has lit it up this offseason and looks primed for a breakout season at Brunswick. He will be a player to keep tabs on over the next two seasons, especially if he carries his scoring prowess into the high school season.

Isaiah Logan2021 5-11 PG Isaiah Logan (Allatoona/North Metro Elite): Cat-quick with a knack for playmaking, Isaiah Logan ran wild in a 69-65 win over Team Strap. Logan was a blur in transition, outracing defenders to the basket to finish with 28 points while going 7-11 from the foul line. Logan looks like a true point guard, one who can handle pressure in tight spaces and also zip in assists out of tough angles. Logan is all gas no breaks. With more time he will get better at changing speeds and knowing when to pull back or go full throttle. Logan should be ready to take over the reins of the Allatoona offense and be able to push the tempo in Coach Chad Phillips’ system.

Rising Senior

Keon Sedgwick2020 6-0 G Keon Sedgwick (Paulding County/SEBA FCI Warriors): A true menace on defense, Keon Sedgwick is non-stop energy and effort on the perimeter. Sedgwick replicated his performance from when I first saw him last season and did not disappoint with his ability to stuff the stat sheet on Sunday. Sedgwick is a tenacious defender that thrives in an up-and-down tempo. He’s a wiry long guard that takes pride in his defense. Sedgwick has a nose for the ball that helps him be involved in nearly every play. Offensively, he uses his quickness to get to the basket but also has a steady midrange pull-up when he stops on a dime.

For the Future

2022 6-2 SG DJ Potts-Heard (Woodstock/Cherokee Legacy): D-I programs might want to keep the name DJ Potts-Heard on the backburner. The rising sophomore is a lights out shooter, one of the best in his class rivaling Chase Cormier of St. Pius X. It wasn’t just Potts-Heard’s shot-making ability that stood out on Sunday but his constant movement without the ball to get free, coming off screens and weaving his way in and out of traffic until he found freedom. Potts-Heard knows that his greatest weapon is his three-point shot, but he can do more than just stroke it from deep. As he continues to mature his body expect his game to diversify and develop into one of the toughest scorers in the North Metro area.

2022 6-5 W Trey Harris (North Paulding/SBT): Coming off of the program’s best season in school history, North Paulding will begin the rebuilding process around Tampa-signee Jacob Harris’ little brother, Trey. Much like his older brother, Trey has a smooth feel to his game with a feathery soft touch to score from all over the floor. He poured in 20 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists in a loss to Team Next Up while hitting three three-pointers. Harris can score in a hurry but not in a loud way, he gets his points quickly and quietly leading opponents shell-shocked when they look at the box score. Harris can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket with his length but his jump shot is probably the most reliable piece of his arsenal right now. As he gets stronger and gets more reps at the varsity level, Harris’ ceiling might be higher than his brother’s who had a historic career with the Wolfpack.

HoopSeen Tip-Off notes

Georgia Knights Elite

Roman Son2020 6-0 PG Roman Son (Therrell): The state champion picked up where he left off at Therrell using his blinding speed to blow past some of the most highly sought-after prospects in Georgia en route to 20 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals in a 78-74 win over Game Elite. Son is a floor general and vocal leader not shy to bark out orders. He knocked down a few pull-up jumpers in the lane – a good sign – but his overall shooting outside of 15-feet is still a heavy work in progress. He went 2-10 from the line, missing three late free throws. Son has the intangibles to be considered a top 10-15 point guard in the 2020 class for Georgia, but to fully cement himself as a top dog he will need to get up as many shots as possible to shore up his one offensive weakness.

Chris Youngblood2020 6-4 SG Chris Youngblood (East Coweta): East Coweta’s climb from nearly worst to first in Region 2-AAAAAAA was well-documented this season. Youngblood’s perimeter prowess and strong frame have made college coaches take note. Coming off of a GACA All-Star Game MVP performance, Youngblood was locked in again dropping 26 points (3 threes), 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block. At first glance, Youngblood has a stocky frame but it’s a college-ready build that’s equipped for the rigors of the next level, especially once he gets into a college weight room and tones up. He isn’t super long, but his understanding of how to defend helps him block shots when attacked. Youngblood is sneaky athletic and with his size, can post up smaller defenders and punish them inside.

Kirshon Thrash2020 6-3 G/F Kirshon Thrash (Eagle’s Landing): Since seeing him last summer at Georgia State Team Camp, Kirshon Thrash has slowly begun to grow on me. His uniqueness and physicality make him a jack-of-all-trades at the high school level. Standing 6-foot-3, Thrash plays at the guard position but honestly could play 1 through 4 with his strength allowing him to defend multiple positions. Much like Youngblood, Thrash is a bully on the low block when needed but what separates him from most guards in his class is his outright productivity all over the floor. Thrash is an exceptional passer that riffles assists into tight quarters. His powerful build makes him a menace on the glass and defensively, he seems to always have his hands on loose balls. Against Game Elite he tallied 11 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals. If Thrash is able to add a consistent three-point shot to his arsenal, expect the human wrecking ball to be even tougher to stop offensively.

Game Elite

2020 6-6 F Sam Hines (Wheeler): Sam Hines might not ever be the “best” player on his team but he will always be the most reliable. Transferring from St. Francis to Wheeler cost him a state championship but Hines was able to prove that he could produce no matter the competition level. Hines is more steak than sizzle, always positively affecting games while teammates garner the headlines. He was terrific in Game Elite’s loss to the Georgia Knights, posting 19 points, 9 rebounds and 1 assist. Hines simply knows how to play the game and understands what he is best at. He can hit the occasional three, but he is most adept at working from 15-feet and in and pounding the glass. You never have to question his motor or his willingness to compete. Named Class 7A Most Underrated, Hines shined again. He should be in play at the Mid-Major level and should excel as a low maintenance energy glue-guy.

Team Forrest

Trashawn Wilson2020 6-5 W Trashawn Wilson (New Manchester): The biggest stock riser from the HoopSeen Tip-Off had to be Trashawn Wilson from New Manchester. The Jaguars were the most talented 11-16 team in the state last year and having Wilson as a fourth leading scorer is something most coaches in the state would dream of. Wilson had a big game in Team Forrest’s 69-68 OT win over AC Georgia, scoring 22 points, grabbing 5 rebounds and snatching 2 steals. The 6-foot-5 wing was smooth, hitting jumpers all over the floor while also attacking the rim and finishing 5-5 from the line. His And-1 jumper in OT sealed the win. Going from unknown to head-turner, Wilson left me wanting to see more and that’s definitely a good thing.

2020 6-10 C Christian Fussell (Greenforest): Fussell has bounced from school to school over his first three seasons but the big man has still found time to work on his game. He’s an intriguing prospect no doubt, especially with his ability to step out and shoot the three. He nailed four deep balls on his way to 18 points, 11 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block. Fussell didn’t show much of a feel for scoring with his back to the basket and is a true stretch-big. As he continues to get reps and opportunities to show what he can do, his recruitment will be one of the more interesting storylines to unfold.

2020 6-6 F Melvin Edwards (Carrollton): After first laying eyes on Melvin Edwards last June, there was no questioning his upside. After watching his play this weekend, I think it’s time to seriously consider the Carrollton Trojan as a potential D-I prospect. Edwards has the athleticism coming off winning the West Georgia All-Star Game Dunk Contest but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He can shoot the ball from deep, he can put it on the floor and finish in traffic and he can protect the rim when asked. He put together a strong game against AC Georgia with 17 points (5-5 FT), 7 rebounds and 1 assist. Edwards is trending in the right direction and needs to be tracked by college programs.

AC Georgia

2020 6-5 PF Adonnis Tolbert (Denmark): Adonnis Tolbert is a sturdy and strong athlete that puts the power in power forward. He brings his football toughness to the hardwood and knows how to use his body. He has a strong vertical explosion when finishing strong in the paint and has a very trusty mid-range jump shot. Tolbert had 14 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in a 69-68 OT loss to Team Forrest.
