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.

Allie Osborne2024 5-11 F Allie Osborne – John Milledge Academy
Coming out of the GIAA, Allie Osborne took full advantage of her much-needed exposure opportunity. The lefty received high marks as a stretch forward with a versatile skill set. Osborne did a good job catching and finishing on the run. She was one of the best rebounders in camp and was comfortable pushing the ball up the floor.  Allie showcased a reliable mid-range jumper and helped space the floor to the three-point line. She didn’t shy away from contact inside and used a soft touch to score around the rim. Osborne proved to be a reliable post defender that could alter shots. Another year of development will go a long way in helping Osborne reach her potential. Improving her foot speed and continuing to challenge herself outside of the GIAA will help her achieve her goal of playing college basketball.

Jasmine Baxter2025 5-10 PF Jasmine Baxter – Galloway
Only a sophomore, Jasmine Baxter was a physical powerhouse that bullied opponents on the low block. Her powerful drop step clears defenders out of the way as she keeps her arms bowed when carving out space. Baxter is extremely comfortable playing with her back to the basket. She posts up with a wide base, giving entry passers an easy target to hit. As the day went on, Baxter began to stretch the floor. She has nice form on her jump shot and will let it fly from beyond the arc. Baxter has the tools to become a D-I post, especially if she can squeeze out another inch or two.

Savannah Robinson-Holmes2025 5-7 G Savannah Robinson-Holmes – Langston Hughes
Maybe the best, most consistent scorer at camp was Savannah Robinson-Holmes. She dumped in 20 points her first game of the day before netting 14 in Game 2 while flirting with a double-double collecting 9 rebounds. Robinson-Holmes is elusive with the ball. She’s a threat to score anytime and anywhere. She sank four threes over her two games while mixing in pull-up jumpers, floaters, drives and putbacks. Savannah’s ability to breakdown the defense and get into the lane will play a big role in Langston Hughes’ success.

Samantha Ambroselli2024 5-5 G Samantha Ambroselli – Centennial
Back from an ACL injury, Samantha Ambroselli looked like she didn’t miss a beat. Sam attacked in a variety of ways, getting to the basket and finishing through contact while also nailing shots from the perimeter. Still a solid playmaker, it looked like Ambroselli was more comfortable hunting her own offense than when I last saw her over a year ago. At 5-foot-5, Sam did a good job as a rebounder as well. Expect a strong statement season for Ambroselli and a sneaky good Centennial backcourt.

Tori Ambroselli2026 5-5 PG Tori Ambroselli – Centennial
Playing alongside her older sister, Tori shined as a playmaker. The rising freshman excelled at attacking downhill as a drive-and-kick facilitator. Tori has quick shifty moves and understands how to draw the attention of defenders before finding the open man. When she looked to score, Tori found points off the dribble from three and could get all the way to the rim on drives.

Alyssa Mullholand2025 5-6 G Alyssa Mullholand – Valor Christian
A regular Top Performer from PRO showcases, Alyssa Mullholand went to work as a lethal perimeter scorer. Alyssa is a difficult cover with her physical strength and deep three-point range. She’s a creative ball handler that gets separation with quick moves. Mullholand is a microwavable scorer that can pour in threes in bunches. When she gets to the hoop she knows how to use her body to score through contact and can finish with either hand.

Kameron Herring2025 5-11 SG Kameron Herring – Woodward Academy
Herring stands out with her length. The long and lanky guard immediately holds upside on both ends of the floor with her wingspan. She has a chance to develop into an impactful defender with great switchability. Offensively, she stripped the nets with her three-point shot.  Once she stretched out the defense, Herring was able to score on drives. She did a great job running the floor in transition and showed the confidence to go coast-to-coast with the ball in her hands.

Asia Bryant2025 5-7 F Asia Bryant – Dacula
I really appreciated how hard Asia played on Sunday. The undersized forward was nonstop on both sides of the ball. She used her body extremely well, converting And-1s as she got into the chests of defenders. Bryant is physical and fleet of foot, quicker than she may look at first glance. She has a burst to the rim and is a willing outside shooter. Asia held her own on defense as a sturdy positional defender that can rebound with toughness.

Kitali Youmans2025 5-7 PG Kitali Youmans – Mt. Paran
Kitali Youmans has enjoyed a strong offseason and on Sunday she may have looked the best I’ve ever seen her. Known for her playmaking and ball handling, Youmans did both while introducing an aggressive offensive mindset. She shot the ball well from three and was able to craft her way to buckets on drives. Kitali’s mature floor game led to robust stat lines, putting up 8 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals in Game 1 followed by 9 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists in Game 2.

Sanai Chisholm2023 5-7 G Sanai Chisholm – Woodville-Tompkins
Up from Savannah, Sanai Chisholm represented the coast well with her toughness from the guard position. The lefty has an underrated handle and likes to stay in attack mode. Sanai has a mixture of strength and speed when getting in the paint. Chisholm is tough to contain once she gets in the open floor.

Jayla Bennett2025 5-3 PG Jayla Bennett – Grayson
There is value in a player like Jayla Bennett. Her IQ and attention to detail is off the charts. While she’s often one of the smallest players on the floor, Bennett still finds a way to stand out by doing the little things – no pun intended. Bennett is a scrappy on-ball defender that moves well laterally and will frustrate ball handlers with her effort. Jayla is fundamentally sound. The true point guard will fake a pass to make a pass. Bennett takes extra strides to find the perfect angle when hitting cutters or making entry passes. Another part of Jayla’s game that stood out was her nose for the ball. She was an outstanding rebounder that snuck in to earn multiple second chance opportunities as an offensive rebounder. Bennett will play a major role in Grayson’s backcourt over the next three seasons and has all the attributes as an unsung hero. She reminds me a little bit of recent Campbell graduate Laila Battle, an All-State guard who is now a freshman at LaGrange.

Sanaa Tripp2024 5-8 PG Sanaa Tripp – Peachtree Ridge
A torn ACL cut Sanaa Tripp’s sophomore season short. Now at Peachtree Ridge, Tripp looks ready to make a major impact at her new home. She showed no signs of rust on Sunday, not even needing a knee brace and hardly breaking a sweat as she picked apart defenses as a passer and scored whenever she pleased. Tripp is a game-changing guard that does everything well.

Austen Colton2023 5-10 PG Austen Colton – East Coweta
Automatic Austen Colton. It felt like every time Colton let a shot fly it found the bottom of the net. A bit undersized, Colton has made sure to pack on muscle to negate any lack of height. He’s a physically strong guard that never loses his center of gravity. Austen has been a prolific scorer during the travel season for years and parlayed that play into averaging 10.9 points per game as a junior. Now the primary scoring option his senior season, expect Colton to nearly double his scoring average, especially if he shoots like how he did on Saturday. He has an effortless three-point stroke that stretches out the defense. While his scoring catches most spectators’ eyes, don’t sleep on Austen’s court vision. He’s a very good passer that puts great zip on his assists. Colton will be a major point producer this upcoming season as both a scorer and facilitator. Pound-for-pound, he’s one of the better offensive players in the state.

Jaheim Crayton2023 5-11 PG Jaheim Crayton – Fideles Christian
I was very impressed with how Jaheim Crayton played on Saturday. A regular at showcase camps, Crayton is a veteran that now knows how to stand out in a crowd. The talented scorer got his points but looked improved as a playmaker, making smart decisions when attacking defenses. Crayton did a nice job turning corners and getting into the teeth of the defense where he would kick out to open shooters in the corners. When Jaheim wasn’t stopped, he was able to finish at the rim and mixed in a sharp pull-up jumper with three-point range.

Jayden Bone2025 6-1 G Jayden Bone – ELCA
It was a positive first impression put forth by Jayden Bone, a sophomore who will make his GHSA debut this season at ELCA after playing at New Creation Christian. Bone is a wiry guard that excels in transition. He made good reads as a passer and always made sure his team came away with points in advantageous situations. Bone scored from the mid-range and at the rim. What really stood out was Jayden’s motor and ability to impact games on both ends of the floor. He’s a quick defender and a willing rebounder from the guard spot.

Jamil Aleem2024 6-5 W Jamil Aleem – New Faith Christian
The bounciest player in camp, Jamil Aleem used his athleticism to get what he wanted on offense. Aleem uses a long, quick first step that covers a ton of ground when getting to the rim. From there, he is able to elevate and finish over any shot blocking presences. Jamil holds upside defensively, able to defend 1-4 with her lateral quickness, length and leaping ability. A key for Aleem is his outside shot. He showed the ability to score off the dribble with a pull-up and kept defenses honest with his three-point shot. Aleem has major tools to work with and has a bright future at the next level.

Khamren Little2023 6-4 G Khamren Little – Mary Persons
Another one of the most athletic players in attendance, Kham Little was tough to stop when he got a head of steam. Little has good size, both height and weight and uses it to his advantage when barreling down the floor. Kham loves to get to the rim where he finishes easily with slams. He finishes through contact consistently. Little is a strong rebounder and a constant threat to go coast-to-coast.

Malachi Jackson2024 5-10 PG Malachi Jackson – Houston County
Malachi Jackson caught my eye with his shiftiness. He’s a quick guard that creates separation with the dribble. He does a good job beating his first defender and also has three-point range, putting the defense in a difficult bind as to choose which to stop. I liked his motor.

Jakari Byrd2025 6-4 F Jakari Byrd – Colquitt County
Byrd is an interesting long-term prospect. He’s a big burly forward that can bang in the paint, but also is light on his feet and possesses guard skills, able to push in transition. The southpaw is a mismatch on offense and a hustler on defense that will chase down blocks from behind and battle for rebounds.

Malik Gillespie2026 6-0 G Malik Gillespie – Houston County
A highly touted incoming freshman out of Middle Georgia, Malik Gillespie played with poise and confidence on Saturday. He looked comfortable getting to his pull-up jumper and really made a difference on the offensive glass, crashing in for tip-ins.

Miciah Hammond2023 6-3 G Miciah Hammond – New Creation Christian
The big guard showed savvy court awareness on offense. Hammond was able to beat his man baseline consistently and loved to suck in the defense before hitting open shooters in the corner. His size and strength allowed him to penetrate the defense deep.

Quentin Hardnett2023 6-0 G Quentin Hardnett – Southwest-Macon
Hardnett served as a perimeter scorer on Saturday. The lefty has a smooth lift when getting into his jump shot. Hardnett shot with confidence and was effective as an on-ball defender.

Allen Suber2023 6-1 G Allen Suber – Union Grove
Allen is a major hustler. He has a knack for filling up the box score. Suber has good length which he uses to rebound in traffic. Allen likes to get putbacks and can catch lobs behind the defense when they are napping. Suber’s defensive effort can be contagious, searching to jump lazy passes and altering shots at the rim.

Ryan Williams2024 5-10 PG Ryan Williams – North Paulding
It’s always refreshing to watch a true point guard in a camp setting. Williams played within himself and was able to standout without having to be a volume shooter. Ryan is a smooth ball handler and crafty playmaker. He manipulates defenses as he surveys the floor to find the open man. Ryan is a skilled scorer with advanced footwork. He’s an up-and-coming stock riser in the 2024 class.

PRO Summer Madness Boys Showcase Top Performers

Samuel Shoptaw2025 6-2 PG Samuel Shoptaw – Lowndes
Samuel Shoptaw was the talk of the camp. The Kentucky-native will quickly earn his respect as one of the better 2025 point guards in Georgia once he is seen. Hidden in South Georgia, Shoptaw made the most of his invaluable trip to Metro Atlanta, earning rave reviews as possibly the best player in attendance. Shoptaw has great size at the lead guard position. He’s very vocal, not afraid to organize his teammates and demand excellence. Samuel is a true point guard, a real playmaker that manipulates defenses with his tight handle and savvy no-look passes. Shoptaw is a creative passer that will use backspin to get the ball to streaking teammates. When hunting his own offense, Samuel scores from all three-levels. He uses jab steps and quick twitch moves to get defenders spinning. Shoptaw is strong to the hoop, protecting the ball on low gathers and able to snap off sharp eurosteps that jolt him across the lane. Samuel does a good job of getting to his spots in the mid-range and doesn’t get forced into any low percentage chances. He identifies mismatches and exploits them. Shoptaw likes to go into the post when he sees a matchup he likes and is patient when deciding whether to make a move or whip a crosscourt pass to an open shooter. If Shoptaw continues to improve and if he gets enough exposure, he could find himself with multiple D-I offers by his senior season.

Camryn Perkins2024 5-11 PG Camryn Perkins – Warner Robins
Now an upperclassman, Camryn Perkins is a known commodity. He’s a dazzling playmaker that makes others around him better with his passing and creativity with the ball. The lefty is shifty. He changes speeds well, using hesitation moves to get defenders on their heels before blowing by. Perkins knows how to finish against length, using scoop shots and keeping the ball extended away from shot blockers. When Perkins gets in the lane, he always knows where his teammates are in case a drive-and-kick opportunity presents itself. Cam has improved each year as a scorer. He can get his shot off the bounce, utilizing step-backs from the mid-range. When Perkins had space, he cashed in from the three-point line. If you’re looking for a floor general with big game experience, Cam Perkins is it. He will make a college program very happy in two years.

Kaleb Rigsby2023 6-4 W Kaleb Rigsby – Franklin County (TN)
Coming from out of state, Rigsby immediately caught my attention with his polished brand of basketball. He has quality size and strength, giving him the versatility to play both inside and out. He has good post moves with his back to the basket, using quick feet to spin before gathering himself and going into the chest of the defender to draw fouls. Kaleb is a sturdy rebounder that plays through contact. When on the wing, Rigsby is a threat to drive-and-kick to open shooters. He also has a push floater in his arsenal.

Antonio Scott2024 6-2 PG Antonio Scott – Telfair County
McRae’s two-sport star doubles as a point guard and quarterback at Telfair County. On the hardwood, it’s Scott’s aggressiveness that stands out. He attacks relentlessly in transition, putting his head down to go coast-to-coast at all costs. Scott has the bounce to punish the rim but also the vision to drive and dump off to open teammates downlow whenever their man steps up to cut off the attack. Antonio was one of the best competitors at camp.

Dylan James2024 6-5 F Dylan James – River Ridge
The skills are there for Dylan James to make an impact at the varsity level. He’s a well-built strong forward with stretch capabilities. He gets off the ground with ease when snatching rebounds and uses his sturdy lower half to play with balance. James is a true-inside out threat. He’s got the ability to score around the rim with hook shots and drop steps and is a mismatch when stepping outside where he has a dangerous three-point shot. As his confidence grows, as will his consistency. James has always impressed me.

Jake Whitaker
2024 6-5 F Jake Whitaker – Kennesaw Mountain
Jake Whitaker is a true combo-forward. He has a projectable frame that will add on even more muscle. He likes to play on the perimeter, using a pretty stroke with a high release. As he adds more to his handle, Whitaker will be able to grow his off the dribble attack. He could quickly master the one dribble pull-up. Expect a strong junior season, part of a nice Kennesaw Mountain nucleus that now has some continuity.

Cade Costanzo2023 5-11 G Cade Costanzo – Bremen
No question, the best shooter I saw at camp was Cade Costanzo. He was automatic from deep with serious range. Costanzo worked well with Samuel Shoptaw, the two having a quick synergy as Shoptaw always knew where Costanzo was and would feed him the ball in his sweet spot routinely. Cade is a premier floor spacer that knows his role and thrives in it.

Chasion Wilson2025 6-4 F Chasion Wilson – Lake Worth (FL)
There is upside in Chasion Wilson’s game. He’s a naturally gifted athlete with great length and mobility. Listed at 6-foot-4, he’s likely taller by the time this story posts and could squeeze out a few more inches when all is said and done. Wilson has a solid motor and likes to play above the rim. He rebounded and alter shots throughout camp. Chasion has burgeoning footwork, shown off by a pretty spinning finish. Wilson has tools to develop into an interesting prospect.

Garrett Fettinger2024 6-7 F Garrett Fettinger – River Ridge
With 7-foot and 6-foot-10 walking out the door, Garrett Fettinger is now next in line to help anchor the River Ridge interior. Fettinger has an interesting skill set. While he is capable of playing inside, Garrett has enough perimeter skills to project more as a combo-forward. He can put the ball on the floor and will eurostep his way through traffic. Fettinger has a soft touch with three-point range. Garrett can be a mismatch with his offensive versatility.

PRO Summer Madness Girls Showcase Top Performers


Jada Williams2023 5-4 PG Jada Williams – Lake Oconee Academy
Jada Williams is no longer an unknown. After winning the Class A-Public State Championship, Williams had even more to prove at camp on Saturday and she did so, turning the heads of college coaches in attendance. Williams is a dynamic athlete. She’s cut with muscle and has a powerful lower half that gives her elite leaping ability. Her bounciness and quickness make her an impact defender. Williams has cat-like instincts, able to change directions swiftly to dart into passing lanes. Jada plays bigger than her size. She had multiple blocks, many on players over 6-foot tall. On the perimeter, Williams sits down in stance and keeps opposing ballhandlers in front of her with relative ease. She’s a vocal leader that communicates consistently on defense. Williams’ motor is non-stop. Offensively she was able to use her first step to blow past defenders and get to the rim. Jada averaged 12.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 5.5 steals as a junior while hitting 45-140 (32%) from three.  While her height may hurt her at first glance, Williams’ competitiveness and elite athleticism will surely draw the attention of D-III and D-II programs.

Frankee Payne2024 5-4 G Frankee Payne – South Gwinnett
As camp went on, the hotter Frankee Payne got. The high-volume scorer is a human microwave. Once she sees one shot drop, plenty will pile in after. The little lefty loves to pull-up from deep, making her a threat from anywhere along the three-point line. Payne’s jump shot is unquestionably her top weapon, but she also has a nice handle which helps create space on the perimeter. Payne can initiate offense out of the pick-and-roll and hit the slip with tight bounce passes. When Frankee decides to turn the corner on drives, she finishes with skilled scoop layups in traffic. Pound-for-pound, Payne was the best scorer in camp.

Miyah Holmes2025 5-11 W Miyah Holmes – Grovetown
Long term, Miyah Holmes might have the highest upside out of anyone in camp. She made a huge first impression with her length, mobility and skill. Holmes is an inside-out threat. She moves extremely well and is comfortable playing on the wing, creating her own offense off the dribble. For her size and age, Holmes is very smooth getting downhill using her long strides to cover ground. She finishes well inside and is a tough-nosed rebounder. With Grovetown graduating their top two scorers, it’s now Miyah’s team. She should at least double her 5.2 point-per-game average as a freshman. Holmes is a name we will be hearing a lot more of over her final three seasons. College coaches may want to put her on their radar.

Paige Fears2025 5-5 PG Paige Fears – New Manchester
Paige first caught my eye back at the Sandy’s Spiel Fall League a season ago. Her development is right on track as she’s becoming one of the more entertaining playmakers west of Atlanta. Fears has a compact build, but she has some strength to her frame to keep bigger guards from trying to overpower her. Paige can play either on or off the ball. Fears has the ball on a string, with quick and precise dribbles to release from any traps and when she wants to find an angle to attack. She uses a eurostep to avoid defenders on her way to the rim. I liked what I saw out of her ability to read the pick-and-roll. Fears delivers accurate catchable balls to her bigs when rolling. Paige is a dangerous three-point shooter. She can get her shot off the dribble or off the catch. I like her outside shot as her best weapon at this point in her career. With New Manchester graduating their top three scorers, I foresee Fears competently filling the outside shooting void left by India Johnson and the creative playmaking of Kamryn Bates.

Kalisha Phillips2023 5-9 W Kalisha Phillips – Hiram
The wiry wing’s calling card was defense. Kalisha flew around the court guarding a variety of positions. Her length on-ball stifled smaller guards and her quickness to rotate over to block shots erased many scoring opportunities. Phillips’ goal on offense was to get to the rim. Adding a reliable outside shot will greatly help with her development, but Kalisha’s energy and athleticism are enough to positively influence games. She averaged 10.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 2.5 steals and 1.8 blocks over a breakout junior season.

Chassidy Fedd2023 5-9 G Chassidy Fedd – Valor Christian
Chassidy Fedd closed camp strong, trading buckets with Frankee Payne. Fedd has nice size and length at the guard position. Throughout the day, defenses could never seem to keep Chassidy out of the paint. She impressed by getting to the rim when she wanted but also knowing when to kick out to shooters. When Fedd did decide to take it herself, she absorbed contact and finished And-1s. Chassidy impressed with her outside shot. When she got hot, she was knocking down threes off the bounce, an important shot for her to make to mix in with her slashing skills. Fedd is a sneaky good player hidden in the Freelance league.

Alexcia Murphy2023 5-10 F Alexcia Murphy – Troup County
There are no surprises when it comes to Alexcia Murphy’s game. I’ve seen her play since freshman year and I know exactly what to expect. Murphy is a bulldozer. She’s got an uncanny nose for the ball with a pit bull mentality. Murphy is a tenacious rebounder that overwhelms opponents with her bully-ball play inside. The lefty can start fastbreaks and weave her way coast-to-coast. Murphy is always looking to attack off the dribble. Her range is expanding, as she hit a career-high 14 threes this past season part of her All-State campaign which saw her post 18.1 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.1 blocks per game. Schools looking for a rugged rebounder and downhill slasher will want to circle Alexcia’s name. Her toughness is covetable.

Kendall Davis2024 5-9 G Kendall Davis – McIntosh

Alyssa Mullholand2025 5-6 CG Alyssa Mullholand – Valor Christian
Alyssa has quickly become a favorite at PRO events with her offensive firepower and style of play. She’s a knockdown shooter, both off the catch and off the bounce. Mullholand has a tight handle when attacking the basket and can finish with crafty scoop layups with either hand.

Marlo Simms2023 6-2 C Marlo Simms – Decatur
Marlo is still coming into her own, but she shows flashes of how good she can be. She has a soft touch from 10-feet. She’s at her best when she plays within the flow of the game. Moves come to her naturally when she doesn’t try to over think things. She implements pump fakes well to let defenders fly by and she has a turnaround jumper in the lane.  As the day went on, she found more and more success blocking shots inside.
