Matthew McAuley
2025 5-10 PG Matthew McAuley – Allatoona
With the game on the line, Matthew McAuley showed his mettle hitting a sudden-death corner three to lift Allatoona past Whitewater 53-50 in the first game of the day. McAuley accounted for 15 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. The undersized guard is a heady playmaker whose best offense comes vis his jump shot. Matt netted three three-pointers in the win and showed some wiggle downhill, finishing tough layups in traffic.

Dean Soulsby2025 6-2 SG Dean Soulsby – Allatoona
The three-point marksman was dialed in, drilling four of Allatoona’s 10 threes against Whitewater. Dean has deep range. He scores off the catch from beyond the arc and has enough creativity to get his shot off the dribble. Soulsby tallied 12 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. He’s one of the best shooters in the state.

Seyi Daramola
2025 6-5 PF Seyi Daramola – Whitewater
Seyi is going to see his stock rise his senior season. The bouncy, high-energy forward will anchor the Wildcats this year. Daramola is a quick second leaper – a great offensive rebounder. Seyi has a quick first step, attacking the defense off the dribble from the high post and wing. His ability to play above the rim allows him to get to balls before opponents with his long arms and anticipation. Seyi scored on three putbacks against Allatoona and finished with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block. D-III and NAIA programs should take a long look at the burgeoning big man. Listed at 6-foot-5, Daramola plays much bigger than his size and holds important value defensively as a rim protector and someone that can switch out onto guards.

Brent Bell2026 6-5 SG Brent Bell – Darlington
All signs point to Brent Bell having a monster final two seasons. He was outstanding against Wesleyan, dumping in 26 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal in a 66-34 win. Bell’s efficiency and multi-level scoring was impressive. Brent sunk three three-pointers and bullied his way to the basket with physical drives, backing down his man, creating contact and finishing with either hand. At a legit 6-foot-5, Bell has all the tools to become a solid D-II prospect with the upside to potentially earn D-I interest. Buy stock now before the bell rings.

Christian Teasley2026 6-2 G Christian Teasley – Darlington
Christian will see plenty of opportunities to positively impact the Tigers this upcoming season. Teasley looks the part with the ball in his hands. He makes quick moves and can get his shot off the dribble. Teasley shoots the three well and has creativity attacking the basket, implementing spin moves and using his wiry strength to score through contact. Against Wesleyan, Teasley hit a pair of threes en route to posting 17 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.

2028 5-8 G Michael Weyer – Wesleyan
Though he was the smallest on the floor in most situations, Michael Weyer played without fear. The little guard stood out with his outside shot, knocking down threes and even mixing in floaters in the lane. As Weyer grows and gets more reps at the varsity level, expect his contributions to increase. With his three-point shot, Weyer could see important minutes early on in his career.

2025 6-4 G Grant Schelhammer – Wesleyan
With key seniors graduating, Grant Schelhammer could slide into a key role his final season. The long-armed lefty has good size on the perimeter. He can shoot the three and make plays off the bounce. Where I think Schelhammer’s greatest value lies is his versatility on defense. He has the length to affect offensive players both in the paint and on the perimeter. Against Darlington, Grant tallied 10 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists.

Jahmar Maurice2028 5-11 G Jahmar Maurice – Furtah Prep
Jahmar lived up to the hype against ML King, erupting for 26 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 1 block. The ballyhooed freshman is a fast-twitch athlete who is always in attack mode. Maurice gets downhill at will with sharp agility. He snaps off eurosteps with ease and can hang in the air to drop in his floater. When Jahmar gets out in transition, he is extremely difficult to catch. He explodes to the rim with speed and elevates to finish through defenders. Adding a consistent outside shot will make Maurice even scarier and could push him to the top as one of the best 2028s in Georgia. Maurice netted a corner three and went 2-5 from the line. His dynamic athleticism and knack for getting to the rim makes him one of the impactful freshmen in the state.

Emontae Gourdine2026 5-9 G Emontae Gourdine – ML King
The southpaw lit it up in a 54-52 loss to Furtah Prep, sinking four threes and two mid-range jumpers. Emontae hit two corner threes off the catch and was able to get to his sweep spots in the mid-range on pull-ups. When he found himself in the paint, he deftly maneuvered with floaters and step throughs. Gourdine dropped 24 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal. He is a sneaky good guard to keep an eye on moving forward.

Caleb Samples2025 6-6 W Caleb Samples – Union Grove
D-II schools should get familiar with Caleb Samples. The inside-out combo-forward has size, athleticism and skill. Over his two games against Southwest-Macon and St. Francis, Samples averaged 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists while hitting three three-pointers and five jumpers. Caleb got to work in the post as well, utilizing hook shots, post turnarounds and dunks. Samples took his man off the dribble from the wing and was able to hit tough shots from 15-feet. When Caleb cleared defensive rebounds, he looked to push in transition. Samples is an intriguing tweener that can be used in a variety of ways.

Chris Wray2027 6-3 W Chris Wray – Union Grove
The breakout star from camp who came in as a somewhat unestablished prospect was Chris Wray. The 3&D wing was outstanding in the corners with his floor spacing ability. Wray drilled 11 threes in two games, averaging 18 points, 5 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Chris did well defensively using his long arms to help guard on the perimeter before rotating down for rebounds. The catch-and-shoot specialist provides a new dimension to the Union Grove offense.

Chase Dupree2026 6-3 G Chase Dupree – Southwest-Macon
Chase is a pure scorer. Dupree who holds D-I offers, is skilled in isolation situations. He creates space off the dribble for his jump shot but also can serve as a facilitator, patient in the pick-and-roll as he lets his diver break through the first line of defense before putting passes on him for easy layups. Chase’s athleticism allows him to get lift on his jump shot which in turn gives him clean looks at the rim. Dupree drilled three three-pointers and hit a pair of mid-range pull-ups to supplement his floaters and slams. In Southwest-Macon’s 53-52 win over Union Grove, it was Dupree who it the game-winning pull-up jumper. His comfortably with the ball in his hands exudes great confidence to make plays. Dupree poured in 25 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1 block. Chase did not disappoint in my long-awaited first look.

Reynolds Escher2025 6-1 G Reynolds Escher – St. Francis
Reynolds is tough as nails. One of the state’s most consistent seniors, Escher is a bulldog on offense from 15-feet and in. He craftily uses his strength and deft footwork to maneuver his way to the hoop. Escher hits pull-up jumpers and does a really good job getting shifty with hesitation moves to get defenders off balance before seeking contact to get to the foul line. Developing a consistent three-point shot will elevate Escher on recruiting boards. In a 68-57 win over Union Grove, Reynolds nearly recorded a triple-double as the do-everything leader compiled 16 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists.

2026 6-3 SG Deniz Ozbek – St. Francis
I really like what Deniz does off the ball. He’s a strongly built shooting guard that spaces the floor with his three-point shot, a perfect fit playing next to Reynolds Escher. Ozbek strokes it from deep off the catch and can put the ball on the floor in spurts when needing to free himself. Deniz cashed in on five threes as he finished with 19 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist against Union Grove. Ozbek is trending up heading into his final two seasons.

Malik Gillespie2026 6-0 G Malik Gillespie – Houston County
Georgia State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff have both offered the hard-playing guard. With the violent athleticism and relentless effort of Malik Gillespie, at first look the polished playmaker may seem like primarily a downhill slasher, but Gillespie has a legit well-rounded game. Malik shoots the ball well off the dribble from the mid-range and three-point line. He has a nice in-between game from about 10-feet, capable of dropping in floaters. I love his agility, quick to change direction and dart around. His explosive leaping ability helps him finish at the rim and his second jump lets him clean up any misses. In a 63-62 loss to LaGrange, Malik filled up the box score with 19 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals and 1 block. Gillespie is one of Middle Georgia’s elite.

Kameron Plummer2025 6-1 PG Kameron Plummer – Houston County
Wiry with wide shoulders, Kameron Plummer has a nice frame for a lead guard. The pass-first playmaker has the length to impact games in different ways. His wingspan is in play when guarding on the perimeter, quick to deflect passes and force turnovers. Plummer uses his frame when getting to the hoop, able to create separation. Kam rebounds well and will initiate fastbreaks by pushing the ball. Plummer had 14 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 1 block against LaGrange, hitting a pair of threes and scoring on two putbacks.

BJ Wortham2025 6-0 G BJ Wortham – LaGrange
In a balanced Granger attack, BJ went for 13 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks to help LaGrange rally past Houston County. Wortham attacked the hoop with both hands. BJ went coast-to-coast and in the halfcourt was able to hit shots from the perimeter with three-point range. His activity level on defense shined as BJ closed out possessions with rebounds and defensive stands.

2025 6-4 W Torian Reeves – LaGrange
The viral dunking sensation proved he was more than just an athlete in a narrow win against Houston County. The jumping jack tallied 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 blocks. Reeves hit a mid-range jumper off the catch and created off the bounce, netting a pull-up. With his length and leaping ability, Torian got to the rim by using hesitations moves. His physical tools project Reeves to be an above average defender who can help guard 1-5.

Qwes Williams2025 6-7 W Qwes Williams – East Coweta
On a roster loaded with size and athleticism, Qwes stood out with his versatility. Williams can serve time between the three and the four. He has the quickness and ball skills to get downhill from the wing and can also hit shots from the perimeter. Williams sank a three against Pierce County. Qwes’ defense was a difference maker in the 53-42 win as he guarded inside and out which led to a balanced stat line of 7 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. College programs should be in touch with the intriguing Indian.

Nigel Brown2026 6-3 G Nigel Brown – Pierce County
Nigel Brown stepped up with Joe Drew absent due to football. Nigel has nice size at the guard position, a stout 6-foot-3 with muscle. He is a solid slasher that can finish against length. Brown is a competent jump shooter from 15-feet and has a chance to grow his range to the three-point line. Nigel scored a game-high 12 points vs. East Coweta.

2026 6-3 G Jared White – Heritage-Conyers
Scoring is in Jared White’s blood. The younger brother of James White (New Orleans), Jared has a knack for putting points on the board. Jared has a stronger frame than his brother at the same age, equipped with some weight which helps him when attacking the hoop. Jared peppered the defense on Sunday with his jump shot. He can go on personal scoring runs with his three-point shot. He has deep range, scoring off the catch and off the dribble.

2025 6-1 G Nick Durham – Alcovy
The wired-to-score lefty is the unquestioned go-to guy for Alcovy. Nick can get his shot off from all three levels. He utilizes the triple-threat upon the catch, jab stepping defenders as he sets them up for moves. Durham is a sneaky good playmaker that can deliver sharp passes to open teammates once the defense collapses on him. Nick is in line for an All-State caliber year and is a stock riser moving forward.

Hollyn Hicks2027 6-2 F Hollyn Hicks – East Forsyth
Going into Year 2, Hollyn looks much stronger and surer about herself on the floor. Hicks spent valuable time over the summer playing on a coed travel team against boys which will only help in the long run. Hicks is adept at using her left hand in traffic, scoring twice with it against Lakeview Academy. Battling the Lions’ 6-foot-4 and 6-foot-2 frontline, Hicks managed to pull down 5 rebounds and block 4 shots. Hicks projects to be one of the better stretch-fours in Georgia’s 2027 class.

2028 6-0 W Sophia Beaty – East Forsyth
The highly touted freshman has a chance to be a dynamic defender from Day 1 with her length and agility. Her impact was felt on Sunday with how much ground she was able to cover both when guarding on the perimeter and when defending inside. Beaty finished with 3 points, 1 rebound, 2 steals and 5 blocks against Lakeview Academy. Sophia has a high upside with her three-point shooting touch and ability to affect games in a variety of ways.

Emyrie Combs
2026 5-7 PG Emyrie Combs – Lakeview Academy
In a backcourt full of aggressive guards, Emyrie is the cool-headed playmaker for the Lions. She does a good job getting others involved, able to create off the dribble as a drive-and-kick facilitator. Combs gets penetration and can whip crosscourt one-handed passes to shooters in the opposite corner. Emyrie hit a pair of jumpers to go along with a putback as she compiled 6 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 2 blocks in a 27-22 win over East Forsyth.

2027 5-7 G Taylor Clark – Lakeview Academy
The 94-foot relentless on-ball defender made it a nightmare for the opposition to get the ball past halfcourt. Clark is lightning quick with her instincts and uses her active hands to swipe away steal after steal. The southpaw has endless energy as her defense ignites her transition offense. Taylor tallied 4 points, 4 rebounds, 5 steals and 2 blocks against East Forsyth.

Maddie Harkins2027 5-6 G Maddie Harkins – Jackson County
I came away impressed with the improvements Maddie has made since the spring, showing much more confidence dribbling with her left hand against pressure and using a low crossover to get back middle. Harkins also was aggressive offensively, especially in a 37-35 overtime loss against Wheeler as she posted 13 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 1 block. The All-Region guard made plays downhill as both a passer and scorer. Harkins is able to hit her natural pitch in the corners but has room for growth when locating the safety valve. Harkins’ best move came on a pull-up jumper out of a spin move. Defensively, Maddie was opportunistic picking off passes, grabbing 7 steals in her two games and was able to limit penetration Harkins received praise from multiple members of media on Sunday.

Lilie Vick2026 6-0 C Lilie Vick – Jackson County
Lilie Vick’s aggression and quickness as a decision maker inside saw an uptick, implementing rips and swings well in traffic to get defenders off her while playing physical. Vick was a difference maker in the paint, finishing with her left hander exceptionally well and scoring through contact. Lilie’s rebounding stood out in both games and her defense as an interior anchor helped the Lady Panthers limit opponents’ second chances. Against Wheeler, Lilie tallied 7 points, 11 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 3 blocks, followed by 6 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals vs. Hampton. Vick is trending up.

Madelyn Drucker2028 5-4 PG Madelyn Drucker – Jackson County
The freshman showed her mettle in the first (summer) varsity game of her career, netting a three with under a minute to play to force overtime against Wheeler. Scouts and college programs alike came away impressed with her poise and long-term upside. As Jackson County’s lead ball handler, Drucker did well at finding the open man while mixing in looking for her own shot. She finished with both hands throughout the day and did a great job rebounding from her guard position. Drucker guarded her yard and helped get into the gaps by digging down. Madelyn averaged 3.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 steals per game.

Laiyanna Bowie2026 5-3 G Laiyanna Bowie – Wheeler
With star Jasmine James missing in action in Game 1, Laiyanna Bowie shined against Jackson County with 16 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals and 1 block. Bowie found four of her buckets in transition and another on a baseline drive. Sandwiched in between were a pair of corner threes that stretched out the defense.

2025 5-6 G Jasmine Rudolph – Wheeler
Jasmine set the tone defensively as the Wildcats’ elder statesman. Rudolph was a ballhawk, picking up 11 steals over her two games. Jasmine is so quick at reading passes and is not shy about crashing in to blow up plays. Rudolph’s only bucket in Game 1 was the deciding hoop, a tough drive splitting two defenders to win in sudden death overtime 37-35. The stat sheet stuffer averaged 4.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 5.5 steals.

Jasmine James
2027 5-6 G Jasmine James – Wheeler
Jasmine wasted no time making up for missing Game 1, torching Creekside Christian in a 35-19 win. James, who averaged a shade under 18 points per game as a freshman, recently picked up a South Alabama offer and showed why on Sunday, exploding for 18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. The do-everything guard is a stout athlete, built from muscle and fast-twitch fibers. She gets good lift on her jump shot and has a burst of speed downhill where she likes to create contact and score through defenders. I loved how James pushed the ball in transition with her head up. Jasmine sank a pair of threes, a mid-range jumper and went 3-5 from the foul line.

Paris Price2026 5-3 PG Paris Price – Hampton
Pesky is a good way to describe the undersized guard. Paris did a great job using her speed to force turnovers. Lazy passes were picked off and converted into transition points including the game-winning steal and layup with less than a minute to play in a 31-30 win over Jackson County. Price finished with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals, scoring five of her six buckets in transition and all six hoops on drives.

Ayana Roberts2026 6-0 C Ayana Roberts – Hampton
College coaches marked down Ayana Roberts as a player to track. She impressed me in April at the Think Pink Classic and has continued to raise her stock. Roberts is big, strong and explosive getting off the floor. She’s a very good interior defender that loves to block shots. She had a game-saving block from behind in transition at the buzzer to preserve a one-point win over Jackson County. Roberts uses her physicality to clear rebounds and can take the ball coast-to-coast. Ayana went for 4 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 5 blocks.

Trinity Grant
2026 6-4 C Trinity Grant – Creekside Christian
Trinity finished with both hands around the rim against Wheeler while utilizing a drop step. Grant ran the floor and scored with her left hand in transition. With her size, Grant has no problem dictating the action in the paint, a strong rebounder and intimidating shot blocker. Trinity was a bright spot with 6 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks.

2025 6-1 C Zaria Graham – Villa Rica
Zaria can be difficult to get around, a strong interior presence that seals well and knows how to get position inside. Graham is effective with her back to the basket and is a reliable one-on-one rebounder. Defensively, she can wall up and block shots without swatting down. Zaria had 6 points, 6 rebounds an 2 blocks against Westlake.

2028 5-10 W Dessiah Merrill – Villa Rica
Much like her older sister Deasia Merrill (TCU), Dessiah has a well-rounded skill set. She is an interesting tweener with the size of a forward but the mobility and reaction time of a guard. The incoming freshman holds versatility and is a better athlete than her sister. She’s quick off the floor to snag rebounds and moves her feet well when defending on the perimeter and in the post. Dessiah filled out the box score against Westlake with 4 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals and 2 blocks.

2025 5-9 W Gabrielle Palmore – Westlake
The lefty is a two-way player. Palmore can serve time at both forward positions. She opens up the floor with her three-point shot and has toughness in the paint when securing rebounds. Gabrielle moves well without the ball when finding open spaces. Her defense impressed on Sunday, finishing with 5 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 4 blocks.

2026 5-11 F Jamia Coleman – Westlake
Jamia passes the eye-test. Coleman is long, lean and athletic. She has a good frame, with posture and wingspan. Jamia is springy off the floor, a quick leaper that can challenge shots and snatch rebounds at their highest point with soft paws. Coleman showed touch around the basket with both hands.

Abbey Bensman
2026 5-10 G Abbey Bensman – Pope
You could see it coming from a mile away. Following a quiet first half with just three points, Abbey Bensman got hot, carrying Pope past Oconee County 40-35 after trailing 23-18 at the break. Bensman would finish with 15 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal. The junior has proven to be a habitual producer since Day 1 of her career. The big guard netted three three-pointers and had a coast-to-coast take with her left hand. Bensman was used in guard-to-guard screens as a pick-and-popper. What separates Abbey from most aside from her consistency is how she is able to see plays develop before they happen, giving her a quick first step to each loose ball and carom as she fills up the stat sheet.

Eliza Oechsle
2027 5-5 G Eliza Oechsle – Oconee County
Eliza was among camp’s top stock risers. The sophomore drained five threes over her two games and impacted each matchup in a multitude of ways. She scored from distance and on drives but also did a good job distributing to shooters, Oconee County burying 13 threes in a 53-44 win over Campbell to close out the day. Continuing to improve her left hand will help Oechsle keep defenses off balance. Her outside shot has already gotten better since Year 1, looking much more fluid with her release. On Sunday, Eliza averaged 14.5 points, 4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2 steals.

Julie Azeltine
2025 5-8 G Julie Azeltine – Oconee County
D-III coaches had Julie Azeltine has a topic of discussion throughout the day, one of the most coveted prospects in the area. The Class 3A Most Improved Player was her consistent self at camp, averaging 10 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 1.5 steals per game while knocking down four threes. Azeltine has grown as a playmaker, excelling on Sunday as a pocket-passer finding slips to the basket.

Ella David
2029 5-9 G Ella David – Oconee County
Ella ended camp with a bang, erupting for 16 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block against Campbell. The eighth grader netted three three-pointers and scored on a left-handed And-1 cut.  David will be an immediate impact player once she makes it to high school. She handles the ball very well, has a high IQ and has all the physical tools to be successful – a wiry playmaker off the bounce.

Marlie Battle
2025 5-8 PG Marlie Battle – Campbell
I felt like Marlie Battle was the biggest stock-riser I saw in camp. She was outstanding in every phase of the game, stepping up as a senior leader doing everything possible to keep Campbell in games. Battle was wildly impressive with her left hand, finishing tough basket after tough basket with her off hand, scoring multiple times as she hunted the left side of the rim. Marlie split defender routinely and made plays as a drive-and-kick creator when not looking to score. In Game 1, Battle came away with a steal and hit a pull-up three at the buzzer to force overtime against Central-Macon. She hit two threes on the day along with two mid-range jumpers, three left-handed layups and two putbacks while shooting 3-7 from the foul line. All in all, Battle averaged 18 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.

2026 5-7 SG McKenzie Jenkins – Campbell
McKenzie stood out as the Robin to Marlie Battle’s Batman, serving as a reliable floor spacer on catch-and-shoot threes. Jenkins cashed in on four threes in her two games while averaging 10 points per game.

Frances Anyakudo
2025 5-9 PF Frances Anyakudo – Central-Macon
Smaller schools looking for a workhorse in the paint that will set the standard for toughness and effort should look no further than Frances Anyakudo. Frances is an absolute powerhouse in the paint, bullying opponents as she rips away rebounds in traffic and overwhelms bigger players with her lower body strength. Anyakudo’s physicality earns countless second chance opportunities. Against Campbell, she finished with 10 points, 16 rebounds, 1 steal and 2 blocks. Frances is the type of player you want to go to war with.

2025 6-1 W Jazlyn Johnson – Central-Macon
The 3&D wing had the game-winning baseline out of bounds bucket in sudden death overtime to beat Campbell 33-31. Johnson had 9 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal. She is a mismatch with her length and outside shot. Jaz keeps the ball high when scoring around the basket, making it difficult to effectively challenge her shots. Johnson has coast-to-coast skill and is a rangy defender that can guard every position.

Bell Emory
2026 5-5 G Bell Emory – Heard County
Bell is an expert at filling the lanes when running the floor. She scored four buckets in transition by outhustling her opponents. At 5-foot-5, all of Emory’s hoops came in the paint. Bell tallied 14 points and 2 rebounds in a 31-20 win over Denmark. She is someone who often finds herself in the right place at the right time thanks to her effort.

2028 5-8 W Azhia Kendall – Heard County
The incoming freshman has a chance to make a mark right away with her “size” and activity level. The undersized Braves need a spark inside and Kendall can provide it. Expect her to play on the wing and in the paint. Her energy is felt defensively, able to guard multiple spots. Kendall had 4 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks against Denmark while showing the ability to finish with both hands.

Avery Huffman2025 5-5 SG Avery Huffman – Denmark
Avery tallied an And-1 drive and a three-pointer to lead Denmark with 6 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals. The sharpshooter has a heavy load on her shoulders with Hannah Lopez out with an MCL injury. Huffman’s toughness and competitive spirit make her the Danes’ most valuable player this summer. She has been trending in the right direction as a floor spacer for D-III schools to look at.

2028 5-5 PG Jadyn Shepard – Denmark
The Denmark coaching staff is bullish on Jadyn Shepard and I see why. She is a very good athlete with a tight handle. She moves differently than her teammates and her agility for a freshman is advanced. Shepard will be a key cog in the backcourt for the Danes as another ball handler and outside shooter. She drilled a corner three against Heard County en route to tallying 5 points and 4 rebounds. Expect the gym rat to rapidly improve throughout the course of her career.

Khore Furlow
2024 6-7 F Khore Furlow – Griffin
The Region 2-4A Co-Defensive Player of the Year earned a Voorhees offer after camp. Furlow made an impact with his rim protection, using his length and athleticism to swat away shots. He did a good job sticking with plays and coming from behind to deny layup attempts. Khore contested everything on defense and did a nice job getting on the offensive glass for putbacks. He will need to add some weight to his frame, but Furlow has nice upside for an unsigned senior. He showed the ability to step outside and hit the three and has room to grow on the perimeter.

Brent Williams2026 6-7 F Brent Williams – Loganville
Brent was established in the post early on. He loved to set high ball screens and roll to the basket. Williams ran the floor for easy hoops and was able to earn tough buckets inside, finishing with dunks and lefty turnaround jumpers.

Christian Little
2025 6-4 W Christian Little – Westside-Macon
Little caught fire with his outside shot, netting threes off the dribble, hitting step-backs and side-step long balls. The big-bodied wing as showed his athleticism downhill, able to absorb contact and finish with authority in traffic.

Jaleel Jordan
2024 6-1 G Jaleel Jordan – Jones County
Stood out with his electric leaping ability. Listed at 6-foot-1, Jordan explodes to the rim for dunks and rebounds. Opponents have to be aware of him when a shot goes up as Jaleel can rush to the rim from the perimeter to snag putbacks. Jordan has some wiggle downhill, able to slyly maneuver his way through the defense for layups.

Isaiah Camon
2025 6-1 G Isaiah Camon – Lowndes
The knockdown lefty is so smooth getting into his jumper. He attacks defenses off the bounce and excels at getting to his spots in the mid-range where he gets great elevation on his jumper, making it tough to defend. Camon is comfortable playing at his own pace. While he can crank it up and play at a high tempo, he is equally as good playing a methodical style as he hunts his offense and weaknesses in the defense.

Cason Harden
2026 5-11 G Cason Harden – Colquitt County
Cason did damage from distance, a long-range sniper with his three-point shot. Harden made some plays with the ball in his hands, finding open teammates and also mixed it up on defense as an on-ball defender. His confidence on the floor is apparent. Once he sees one shot drop, more will follow.

Jelani Dean
2024 5-9 G Jelani Dean – Veterans
One of the shortest players in camp as well as one of the most lightweight, Jelani Dean packed a punch on Sunday. His lack of size didn’t hinder him a bit as his motor shone through. The high energy guard finished at the rim using his springy bounce to score through the trees. He aggressively got downhill and proved to be crafty finisher. When defenders sagged off Dean to respect his quickness with the ball, he burned them with his three-point shot.

Jaelin Lumpkin
2024 6-0 G Jaelin Lumpkin – Oglethorpe County
I really liked the athleticism of Jaelin Lumpkin. He’s a fast-twitch guard that plays with great speed. He darts around the floor, changing speeds and directions in a blink. He is able to turn corners and hurt defenses with his consistent penetration. He has upside as a drive-and-kick distributor.

Kameron Plummer
2025 6-2 G Kameron Plummer – Houston County
Wiry with a broad set of shoulders, its hard to believe Kameron Plummer is already a rising senior. The toolsy guard can play multiple positions on the perimeter, able to play on and off the ball. He is a good shooter off the catch and showcased the ability to create downhill, using clean footwork highlighted by a lightning quick spin to free himself on drives. With Plummer’s length and lateral speed, he is a very effective defender that brings energy and versatility.

Jayden Harper
2026 5-10 G Jayden Harper – Warner Robins
Jayden caught my eye with his effort and athleticism. Harper gets up with the big boys when it comes to rebounding in traffic and scoring at the hoop. He floats in the air to score through contact. The rising junior will be a handful once he is able to consistently mix in jumpers with his drives.

Jaeden Burns2024 6-4 F Jaeden Burns – Warner Robins
Keep an eye on Jaeden Burns his senior season. The rangy combo-forward brings great energy on both sides of the ball. He is a versatile defender that can guard on the perimeter and in the post. Burns has a quick second leap when rebounding. His activity on the backboards earns second chances.

2024 6-4 F Markelle Jones – Dougherty
Jones is a defensive ace. Listed at 6-foot-4, he plays bigger with his wingspan and timing off the ground. The lefty changes shots routinely and crashes in for rebounds. Markelle is agile enough to attack from 15 feet. Jones averaged 10.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.9 blocks as a junior.

Brent Williams2026 6-7 PF Brent Williams – Loganville
Williams is a bit of a throwback post. While he can play above the rim and shoot the three, the lefty does some of his best work with his back to the basket. Quickening his post moves and overall agility will help at the next level, but the skill set is a well-rounded one for a big man his age.

Hunter Amick2024 6-4 W Hunter Amick – Brookwood
The fruits of Hunter Amick’s labor are about to show his senior year. Since the Sandy’s Spiel Spring Showcase, Amick has put in the work necessary to become a legitimate college prospect. It’s easy to harp on his athleticism and effort, but Hunter’s ball skills have improved as well. The versatile swingman is becoming a playmaker off the dribble. He’s a steady slasher and an improving jump shooter.

Chasion Williams2025 6-5 F Chasion Wilson – Lake Worth Community
Chasion Wilson makes this list Every. Single. Time. The high-flyer from Florida is exciting to watch as he routinely leads all campers in dunks when he shows out at PRO events. Wilson’s ability to get downhill and elevate above others is impressive. Growing his perimeter skill set will allow him to unlock new heights.

Grant Jackson2024 6-6 F Grant Jackson – Valdosta
Count on Grant Jackson to explode past the numbers he put up as a junior, averaging just 1 point and 1.7 rebounds per game. I came away impressed with what Grant was able to do at the four-spot. Jackson was able to score in the paint, gathering himself with balance and exploding to the rim. He made good decisions out of the high post as a passer.

Tahai Morgan2024 6-0 PG Tahai Morgan – Lanier
Entering camp as the most established prospect, Boogie wasted no time getting to work. The three-level scorer changed speeds exceptionally well, throttling up with bursts to the basket to leave defenders in the dust. Morgan is a crafty finisher. Not only can he score through the trees from tough angles, he can chop down the lumber with highlight jams. Brevard College offered last month.

Amari Morgan2025 6-5 W Amari Morgan – Lanier
Amari checks a lot of boxes. Morgan has very good size on the wing and is an explosive athlete that glides to the rim. The junior is knocking on the door of producing a breakout campaign, especially if he starts knocking down outside shots consistently.

Benjamin Harper2024 6-3 W Benjamin Harper – Veritas Classical
Harper turned some heads with his flowing locks but more substantially his skill. Harper is an athletic swingman that explodes to the rim. He hangs in the air for tough finishes and showed on Saturday the ability to get to his spots in the mid-range. His subtle yet smooth game can catch opponents off guard from all levels.

Stefan Todorovic2024 6-3 SG Stefan Todorovic – Furtah Prep
Give Stefan some space and he will make you pay. Todorovic is a physically strong guard with college-ready size. He can bury teams with catch-and-shoot threes. As he gets more comfortable with the speed and athleticism of the American game, expect Stefan to find success consistently.

Bryson Henry2025 6-5 F Bryson Henry – Valdosta
Another potential long-term hidden gem for small programs, Bryson Henry made an impact in the paint with his scoring touch and rebounding. Henry has a pretty baby hook in the middle of the lane which is tough to defend.

Brayden Holiday2026 6-1 PG Brayden Holiday – Mountain View
Holiday has the ball on a string. He does a nice job balancing his scoring with his facilitating. Expect Holiday to see some minutes in Year 2, but really take off as a junior once a large 2024 class graduates. He feels like the type of guard that can see an offense run through him consistently, serving as a point producer.

Nayel Camper2024 5-8 G Nayel Camper – Cartersville
Cartersville has broken out of the doldrums, improving from 4-14 to 17-11 a season ago, earning Class 5A Most Improved Team honors. Expect the Lady Canes to improve on that mark with nearly their entire roster back including a much improved Nayel Camper, a breakout candidate. Camper has had a strong offseason after averaging 5.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2 assists and 2.3 steals per game as a junior. At camp on Saturday, Nayel showcased her improved offensive game and aggressive mindset. She is very good at getting downhill and finishing through contact. Camper is a skillful finisher that puts just the right amount of English on her reverse layups. Nayel can also step outside to shoot the three. Defensively, she can help guard all three spots on the perimeter. Wesleyan College offered at the conclusion of camp. I expect her name to start appearing on more NAIA and D-III radars.

Gracie Byford2025 5-5 PG Gracie Byford – Villa Rica
Gracie always has the neon green light at PRO camps. Confidence is never an issue for the offensive sparkplug. Byford piles in points in bunches and is a must-watch for mixtape producers like Bonafyde. Gracie pulls threes from way beyond the arc, getting her full body into her launches. Once she sees one shot drop, plenty more are to follow. Aside from her endless jump shooting range, for me it was the glimpses of Byford’s upside as a playmaker that stood out. Gracie is a shifty attacker that draws the entire defense’s attention when driving. She can use that to her advantage by either dumping off to teammates on the block or kick out to open shooters on the perimeter.

Jayla Walton2027 5-3 G Jayla Walton – Southwest DeKalb
Even though she was one of the youngest players in camp, there was no avoiding that fact that Jayla Walton was one of the best players in camp. Walton, who played with Southwest DeKalb in GBCA Live, looked more than comfortable playing with older competition. Walton is a knockdown shooter. Though she can fill it up from deep, Jayla isn’t a one-trick pony. She is a skilled ball handler that can beat pressure by getting to her spots. Walton could play a key role as a floor spacer this upcoming season.

Devin Bockman2026 5-4 PG Devin Bockman – Midtown
It’s hard not to like the activity of Devin Bockman. She provides great effort on both sides of the ball, easily apparent by what she did as a freshman last season averaging 7.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.6 steals. Devin flies around the floor defensively and is a heady decision maker in transition. She likes to get to her pull-up jumper but also has a burst of speed to get all the way to the hoop. With their entire team intact from last year’s 22-9 Elite Eight group, Midtown is a sneaky sleeper to make a run at the Class 5A title.

Hailey Wortmann2026 6-1 C Hailey Wortmann – Midtown
Wortmann shows flashes of her long-term potential. Blessed with great size and an athletic frame, Hailey immediately passes the eye test. She was able to be effective in the paint earning second chance opportunities and displayed a soft touch when finishing five feet away from the basket. Continuing to play her size – exploding up when finishing around the rim – will help her reach her ceiling.

Maya Crawford2024 6-1 C Maya Crawford – Central-Macon
Maya turned heads at camp. Standing 6-foot-1, Crawford was not bashful about competing in the paint. Her physical brand of basketball could be seen on both ends of the floor. Crawford carved out space with her power drop steps and was able to change shots inside defensively. The more reps she gets, the better Crawford can be. There is a spot on a college roster somewhere for the hard playing post. Wesleyan College has already offered.

Kacie Reeves
2027 5-6 G Kacie Reeves – Central-Macon
It wasn’t long ago that Kacie started taking basketball seriously, following in the footsteps of older brother Kowacie Reeves Jr. (Georgia Tech). Much like her sibling, it looks like Kacie is ascending on an impressive trajectory. Reeves has a good build for a freshman but more importantly, she has a pretty form on her outside shot. Kacie knocked down three after three, especially in stations. Don’t be surprised to see her play off the ball as a freshman as a catch-and-shoot three-point specialist alongside All-State guards Alaya Grane and Taliah Grier. Reeves adds another integral scoring threat to a team rooted in physical defense.

Dailey Jefferson2024 5-10 F Dailey Jefferson – Sprayberry
Dailey gets a crack at public school ball her final season after starring at Walker. Jefferson is a springy forward that is quick off her feet to secure rebounds and finish inside. She isn’t afraid to throw her muscle around when carving out opportunities to score and has shown the ability to attack from the perimeter. D-III programs are wisely tracking her.

Jaden Young
2025 5-8 G Jaden Young – Morgan County
Fresh off the soccer pitch, Jaden Young didn’t look rusty at all on Saturday. Young looked confident as a scorer. She was able to get to her shot in rhythm, not hesitating to catch and let it fly. Young moves well with nimble footwork but also can serve as a big guard, able to provide some power when attacking the hoop. An elite academic student, with basketball becoming her primary focus over the next two seasons, expect D-III programs to start honing in.

Cameron Terry
2027 5-5 G Cameron Terry – Chapel Hill
Terry should provide a lift for Chapel Hill in Year 1. She is a strong athlete that can handle the ball and absorb contact when getting downhill. When the ball isn’t in her hands, she runs the floor hard to find openings. Cameron’s physical tools are impressive.

Janiya McCoy
2025 5-0 PG Janiya McCoy – Southwest DeKalb
Not many players in the state can say defense is their calling card. ClampGod Janiya McCoy takes great pride in her on-ball defense. The wiry undersized guard is a bundle of athleticism and energy. She is an absolute pest that can pick up and defend the entire length of the floor.

Ella Rainwater2027 5-5 G Ella Rainwater – Buford
Ella Rainwater is the perfect fit at Buford. She plays incredibly hard and is the first to get on every loose ball. The hustler wasn’t afraid to mix it up with bigger opponents. Offensively, Ella profiles as a heady decision maker that can knockdown threes consistently.
