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.

2025 6-1 PF Jessica Fields – Mt. Paran
Georgia’s top-ranked sophomore and elite shot blocker, Jessica Fields came to camp soon after winning her second-straight state title and dominated like she did in the big game, blocking every shot around her area and finishing consistently through contact inside while managing to step out to hit the mid-range when needed. Fields is a blue-chipper with High Major offers. Her wing span and instincts blocking shots can’t be taught. As long as she stays out of foul trouble, Fields is often the most influential player on the floor. She can almost win games by herself with how well she can lock down 10-feet from the rim and in defensively.

Hannah Harris2024 5-6 PG Hannah Harris – Cherokee
I absolutely loved what I saw out of Hannah Harris on Sunday. The junior was a bundle of energy, talking non-stop on the floor and even on the bench. Her emotional play was infectious as she hyped up teammates. Harris played with great pace, pushing the ball with speed and delivering pocket passes on the money to streaking teammates. When left open on the perimeter, Hannah sank the three but never settled, doing a good job getting her feet in the paint on drives. What impressed me most was deep into camp in her final game of the day, Harris revved up her play to another level, defending on-ball with great vigor as she eliminated any airspace for her opposing ball handler. It was a great day of action for Harris. I’m looking forward to seeing more of her. She is a tone setter.

Ava Andrews2025 6-1 W Ava Andrews – North Paulding
Andrews stands out with her height, length and athleticism, but she is really turning into a full-time wing as her jump shot was as good as I’ve ever seen it on Sunday. Andrews nailed jumper after jumper, stroking it from the mid-range and extending her range in spurts to the three-point line. Ava has one of the highest ceilings in her class. She has such great tools to work with. Andrews can be a nightmare to keep off the glass with her quick second leaps and can wreck games defensively with her ability to shoot into passing lanes, block shots and in general guard almost every position on the floor. D-I offers aren’t far away.

Graycen Ehlen
2025 6-0 W Graycen Ehlen – Walton
I think more and more people are starting to take notice of Graycen Ehlen, a player whose praises I’ve been singing since I first saw her about a year ago. Ehlen immediately passes the eye-test with her size and athleticism. She’s strong enough to play inside, score on the block and rebound in a crowd, but she’s also skilled enough to push the ball in transition and handle full-time on the perimeter. Graycen’s versatility can lead to mismatches for opponents. She shoots the three well and can get downhill with power. I really like what she can do defensively, guard a post player one possession then move her feet to stay in front of smaller guards on the perimeter the next trip down. Ehlen gives me some Kayla Cleaveland type vibes at times. If Graycen continues to develop, I would be shocked if she doesn’t end up with a handful of D-I offers, I think she is that good.

Riley Simmons2024 6-0 F Riley Simmons – Cherokee
Riley warmed up as camp went on, finding her stroke from the mid-range. Simmons had a strong junior season, stepping up as a second-option behind Toni Warren. She played a great game against Lovejoy at the Sandy’s Spiel Showdown after Warren went down with an injury. Riley’s an interesting prospect with her size, strength and shooting touch. She’s effective on the offensive glass and is a real threat in pick-and-pop situations with her three-point range. Continuing to make plays off the dribble will be big for her; she shined in that area against Lovejoy. Simmons is one of the best stretch-fours in Georgia’s 2024 class.

Courtney Davis2024 5-5 G Courtney Davis – Fannin County
If you go under the screen against Courtney Davis, you know what’s coming. The high-octane scorer won her second-straight Region Player of the Year award after netting 20 points per game. I love Davis’ toughness and willingness to step up in big moments. She battled an MCL sprain this season and didn’t miss a beat. She has deep three-point range off the dribble and can blow by defenders downhill once she gets an angle. Davis does a good job drawing fouls and is solid finisher in traffic.

Gracie Byford
2025 5-5 G Gracie Byford – Villa Rica
Coaches and media in attendance quickly took notice of Gracie Byford’s game. The sharpshooter is a playmaker off the dribble. She’s got wiggle to her game, able to get defenders off balance before pulling up for threes. When Byford is really cooking, she can get to her floater and mix in mid-range pull-ups. Gracie can score in bunches and does so with a stoic demeanor.

Kylie Watkins2025 6-0 F Kylie Watkins – White County
Kylie Watkins’ length made an impact on the defensive end of the floor, blocking shot after shot. Kylie does a good job of walling up and not swatting down for any cheap fouls. She’s capable of defending on the move and recovering if someone gets by her. Watkins did a nice job scoring in the paint as she absorbed contact.

Kayla Cleaveland2025 6-0 F Kayla Cleaveland – River Ridge
One of the first names a college coach brought up to me when I walked in the gym was Kayla Cleaveland. One of the state’s biggest stock risers this season, the state champ was back in action two days after hoisting the trophy. What stands out about Cleaveland aside from her game is her character and toughness. She battled a foot injury nearly all season long but didn’t let it slow her down as she grinded her way into being available as much as possible. She reinjured her foot in the state title game after an early seven points but once again showed her mettle as she returned to play and finished with 15. When breaking down her game, the lefty is a true three-level threat. She loves her 15-footer from the elbow, a shot she has perfected. What really impresses me is how well Cleaveland runs the floor and can catch and finish all in one motion with either hand while moving at a rapid pace. Kayla is the real deal with her versatility. Georgia Southern offered after the state title game, marking her first D-I bid.

Arianna Hill2026 6-0 C Arianna Hill – Toombs County
Arianna Hill really caught my eye. The young post has a strong frame and flashed quality footwork with her back to the basket. Hill scored on drop steps and didn’t flail away from contact. Hill is an effective rebounder and a defensive presence in the paint. I think she could be a major player in Region 3-2A and develop into one of the better big girls in the classification.

Tracy Wakefield
2028 5-6 G Tracy Wakefield – Marietta
2028 is a long way away, but Tracy Wakefield and a bunch of other current Marietta middle schoolers have a chance to be flat out special. The youngster had no problem fitting into camp on Sunday as she stripped the nets from deep and had an impressive eurostep through traffic for one of the toughest hoops of the day. Wakefield could log varsity minutes right now. As she continues to add to her game, her confidence will grow concurrently. I’m excited for Tracy Wakefield’s future.

Amaya Harris
2025 5-6 G Amaya Harris – Hillgrove
Harris is a tough cookie in the backcourt. Amaya is a strongly built guard that can shift directions and score in different ways. She’s a skilled finisher, but will also beat defenses with her stop-and-pop game. Amaya is a stingy defender that can help guard 1-3.

Londyn Walker
2025 5-8 G Londyn Walker – Wesleyan
One of the strongest players in camp, Londyn Walker is a battering ram when she puts her head down and attacks the rim. Walker is a powerful player, strong in the weight room which allows her to play much bigger than her size. She can outmuscle opponents for rebounds and has no problem absorbing contact for And-1 finishes. With her strength, Walker holds value defensively as she can hold her own when switched onto bigger oppnents.

Jacalyn Myrthil2025 5-5 PG Jacalyn Myrthil – Mt. Paran
It’s not often you see the defensive tenacity Jacalyn Myrthil brings to the table. Only a rising freshman, Myrthil has a chance to be special. Continue reading Walton/Jefferson Team Camp Top Performers
