2020 5-10 PG Demajion Topps (New Manchester): Topps wowed the entire day with an aerial display of acrobatic high-flying dunks. He was must see TV. Topps also showed that he could have the ball on a string and break down any man off the dribble on his way to averaging 14.5 points per game. He had 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in the All-Star game.

2019 6-6 PF Zeff Felton (Dooly County): The big unknown from Class A-Public made a lasting impression, tearing down rims and gobbling up rebounds. His 22-point 25-rebound game was as dominating as you’ll see in a camp setting. He averaged 13.5 points and 14 rebounds on the day. In the All-Star game Felton didn’t slow down, posting 18 points and 7 rebounds.

2021 6-1 CG Marcus Samuel (Langston Hughes): The physical downhill guard assaulted the rim throughout the day, difficult to slow down after beating his man with the first step. Samuel rebounded well and provided energy on both sides. Samuel averaged 16.3 points over his first three games.

2021 6-2 CG RJ Noord (Greenforest): The talented ballyhooed youngster brought his alpha dog mentality as he used his athleticism to get to the basket. He cracked double digits in every game and proved to have potential as a defensive ace when locked in. Noord pitched in 10 points and 6 rebounds in the All-Star game and averaged 12.5 points over the course of the event.

2019 5-10 PG Orry Owens (Hillgrove): The wily veteran was quick in transition and knocked down a handful of pull-up jumpers from the midrange. Owens shined in the All-Star game when he poured in all 14 of his points in the second half. He averaged 10.2 points.

2021 5-9 PG AJ White (Chattahoochee): White was hunting his shot in spurts throughout the day, balancing getting his and getting his teammates involved. The microwave buried 7 threes over his four games, netting 15 points in the All-Star game. White was a blur, averaging 13.2 points on Saturday.

2019 5-11 SG Jordan Bragg (New Manchester): The southpaw has emerged over the summer as one of the most dangerous outside shooters in the state. Bragg sank 9 threes on the day and finished with 8 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists in the All-Star game. Bragg averaged 12.5 points as one of the event’s best sharpshooters.

2019 5-11 PG Alijah Huzzie (Heard County): Coming from little Heard County, Huzzie more than held his own. A real stat sheet stuffer, the 20+ point per game scorer in the high school season proved he could do more than just fill it up. He averaged 9.5 points per game and in the All-Star game tallied 8 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and picked up the game-saving block on 6-foot-4 PJ Carter with seconds remaining.

2020 6-5 W Ra’Sean Frederick (Therrell): Frederick was a revelation in camp, blending physicality, skill and finesse to torch defenses. The lefty averaged 17 points per game and affected the game on both sides of the ball averaging 6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.5 steals.

2021 6-4 W Logan Turner (Centennial): The young slasher averaged 11.5 points per game scoring from the perimeter and working his way to the basket. Running the floor led to easy baskets in transition. He finished with 13 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in the All-Star game.

2019 6-4 F Jaiden Julian (Hillgrove): Another veteran Hawk, the Hillgrove product was consistent over his first three games averaging 13 points per game. Julian slashed to the basket and played inside-out, hitting a three in each game.

2019 6-1 G Josh Favors (Creekside): Tough was a word that could be used to describe Favors’ performance. Entering with not much of a track record at the high school level, Favors tore it up with his aggressive style of play, scoring on all three levels. Favors led the event in scoring, pumping in 20 points per game and hitting 20 points in the All-Star game.

2020 6-4 W PJ Carter (Langston Hughes): Over the course of his first three games, Carter netted 15 points per. His size and scoring touch was apparent. He will have an opportunity to take over for Landers Nolley and try to guide Langston Hughes to a third straight title.

2019 6-4 W D’Antaye Page (Westlake): Page continued his scoring binge from the travel season, putting up 15 points per game and going for 19 points and 5 rebounds in the All-Star game. After a quiet junior season at Westlake, Page has had a loud summer as he tries to carry momentum into his final year.

2019 6-5 W Kanaris Cummings (Cedar Grove): Cummings was outstanding with his relentlessness. The slasher was involved in almost every play and lived in the paint. He averaged 9.2 points and 8 rebounds as the ultimate energy guy. His length led to 5 steals and 2 blocks.

2021 6-1 G Christian Callahan (Dutchtown): Callahan did not play like a rising sophomore. The now healthy guard was mature for his age and found a niche to provide consistency. He hit the outside shot played solid perimeter defense. Callahan averaged 10.7 points per game.

2020 6-0 PG Donovan Shipp (Sequoyah): In an exposure camp setting, Shipp proved to be a true point guard electing to play his game and get his teammates involved. He rebounded exceptionally well for his size and averaged 7.6 points over his first three games.

2020 6-0 PG Roman Son (Therrell): The Therrell Panthers will be in great hands with Son running the show for another season. He had some great drives to the basket, finishing through contact. Son’s competitive spirit will lead Therrell to another big season. He averaged 14 points per game on Saturday.

2019 6-3 SG Kaleb Wallace (Westlake)
: Over the course of his first three games, Wallace proved that he could score the rock, averaging 13.3 points per game. In the All-Star game he added 6 points and provided some flair.

2020 6-2 SG DeAndre Brown (Therrell): After a slow start to the day, scoring 4 points in Game 1, Brown found his stride and scored in waves. In his final three games he averaged 23.6 points. Brown drilled 3 of his camp-high 11 three-pointers in the All-Star game as he finished with 17 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.

2021 6-0 SG George Pridgett (Roswell): Pridgett had as strong a case of anyone to make the All-Star game. The rising sophomore is a flamethrower from deep. The lefty ended his day with 15 points and 6 rebounds. He drilled 6 threes over the course of the event and averaged 13.3 points per game.

2020 6-6 F Javanni Brown (Johns Creek): The long forward broke out in a big way in his final game of the day exploding for 22 points. He buried 3 threes and used his size to finish around the basket.

2021 5-8 PG KJ Webb (Langston Hughes): Small in stature with plenty of room to grow, Webb handled the ball exceptionally well and had no problem playing role of playmaker. Webb can shift gears and create easy looks for teammates.

2019 6-5 F Chancellor Wright (Mays): Wright played with energy and defended multiple positions. He crashed the glass and scored around the rim. The lanky forward was consistent averaging 8 points per game.

2022 5-11 CG Gaddis Heath (Douglass): One of a handful of rising freshen in camp, Heath excelled at rebounding from his position. He showed he could hit the open three and got to the rim on occasion. Defensively he made some nice plays.

2021 6-3 W Bryce Wilson (Dacula): As Wilson grows his confidence and IQ, he will become better and better. Wilson did a nice job of playing glue guy, chipping in on the boards and helping on defense. He posted games of 8 and 6 points. Wilson could be a usable piece for his father at Dacula this upcoming season.

2021 6-6 F Eli’sha King (Tri-Cities): King was one of the camp’s most consistent rebounders. He had a steady motor and converted around the hoop on offense. King averaged 8.3 points and flirted with a double-double on numerous occasions. He snagged 13 rebounds to open camp.

2020 5-10 G Nicholas Goldsztein (Walton): Goldsztein provided good minutes at the guard position. His floor vision was among the best at camp. He often made the right decision and played within himself. Goldsztein knocked down the open three throughout camp and averaged a steady 5.3 points.

2021 6-2 F Alexander Zwerner (Westminster): A soft touch and a nose for the ball characterized Zwerner’s productive afternoon in which he averaged 7.6 points. Zwerner scored from 15-feet in and knocked down the perimeter shot when given to him. He had deceptive quickness and enough handle to get in the paint.

2021 6-7 F Davorian Rudolph (Tri-Cities): It will be very interesting to see how Rudolph develops his game. At 6-foot-7, there is plenty of intrigue around the slim forward’s skill set. Rudolph showed he could attack the basket off the bounce but also hit a three in each of his three games. He averaged 5.6 points per game. With the proper work, there’s a chance that Rudolph will be a name you hear a lot more of over the next three years.

Player Evaluation Sample 

sportalSlam I notes

17U Georgia Man Up

2019 5-10 PG Josh Guilford (Heritage-Conyers) shined in Georgia Man Up’s 67-64 championship victory over Team Affect. He was tricky, using his experience to coax three fouls on three-point attempts. He finished with 15 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Guilford has a good feel for the game and has momentum coming off of Heritage’s Final Four run in Class AAAAAA. He was the team’s third-leading scorer at 11.3 points per game and will bring with him some veteran savvy his senior season.

Khobe Comer

2019 6-2 SG Khobe Comer (Stockbridge) caught my eye with his pretty shooting stroke and nice size. He was a role player for the Tigers last season but should move up in the rotation. He was a crucial floor spacer for Georgia Man Up and hit three timely three-pointers down the stretch in the championship, hitting four for the game and finishing with 15 points and MVP honors.

2019 5-foot-10 PG Trillis Brown (Stockbridge) averaged 7.3 points during the high school season. He was a playmaker this weekend at sportalSlam I. He came in off the bench to affect the game in ways that don’t always show up on the scoresheet. He netted 6 points, but it was his defensive pressure and decision making with the ball that shined. He had two nice assists and knows how to set up his teammates.

17U Team Affect

Tabais Long

2018 6-5 SF Tabais Long (Salem) is a player that has long interested me. With such size, at first glance you would think the Scotland Prep bound swingman is more akin to playing the role of bruiser on the block, but instead it’s his mixture of skill and physicality that sets him apart. Long can handle the ball like a guard, but punish you on downhill assaults like LeBron James, using his body to absorb contact and finish at the rim. He posted 32 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 1 block in a blowout win and showed all the tools that makes him a prospect to keep tabs on. In the championship game, he struggled with 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists, airballing two three-pointers. Over his senior season, Long averaged 11.7 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals while hitting 45% of his three-point attempts (25-of-55). He has the physical tools to be a productive college player.

Jalen Horton

2019 5-10 PG Jalen Horton (Rockdale County) showed some flashes of being able to carry the load offensively for the Bulldogs next season. After averaging 5 points and 3.6 assists, Horton will be asked to play a much more substantial role in the offense with Sayvon Traylor graduating his 21.9 points per game. Horton is a spark plug guard that likes to break his man down off the dribble. He has to be careful not to over dribble too much. The only time he might force the issue is when he tries to get into the paint. He didn’t take too many bad outside shots this weekend and moved the ball around. He had 13 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals in a 35-point win. In a championship loss, he finished with 6 points, 4 assists and 3 steals.

2018 6-5 SF Tehjuan Powell (Salem) is a rugged slasher that finishes with authority at the rim. He led the Seminoles in scoring his senior season at 13.3 points to go with his 5.2 rebounds per game. Everything was towards the basket. He reminded me of Central-Talbotton’s ZyTavian Hill, a physical specimen that imposes his will. Powell had 12 points and 4 rebounds in a rout and posted 16 points and 5 boards in the championship. He must develop an outside shot to keep defenses honest and round out his offensive game. He plays with a chip on his shoulder and isn’t afraid to talk during games.

2018 6-5 PF Jalen Reynolds (Salem) was a space eater inside. He used his wide frame well and showed some back-to-the-basket post moves. He has a strong drop step that freed him up consistently throughout the weekend. One he got his shoulders past the defender, he was strong enough to keep any would-be shot blockers from affecting him. His best game came in the championship with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

2020 5-11 CG Jeremiah Venson (Salem) rose his stock at sportalSlam. The lefty played sparingly this season, averaging 2.9 points per game, but that should change next year. Venson is a microwave from deep, that can get hot in a hurry. He is composed with the ball and can catch defenders off balance. Once his three-point shot is established, Venson can attack the paint and finish in traffic. He had 13 points, 4 rebounds and 3 steals against the Georgia Livin’ Legends and followed up with 14 points on 4 threes in the title game.

16U Georgia Grizzlies

Kedric Barrett

2020 6-6 C Kedric Barrett (Lambert) was so impressive throughout sportalSlam, capping his excellence with MVP honors after wrecking the Smyrna Stars for 25 points and 15 rebounds. Barrett is a big boy and uses his size to his advantage. He is a throw back post that knows how to score around the rim. He loves to turn over his left shoulder to get to his baby hook which he kissed off the glass consistently. The Grizzlies high-lowed teams to death this weekend, using duck-ins to get Barrett free. He has a nice touch that can extend to 15-feet and was money from the line, going 9-of-10 in the championship. Barrett can sometimes incite altercations with his play inside, but when he is locked in and doesn’t get involved with any head games, Barrett is a solid foundation player. Currently, he is stuck behind fellow sophomore 6-foot-8 Colin Granger on the Lambert depth chart.

Franklin Bailey

2020 5-11 SG Franklin Bailey (Chattahoochee) was money from deep. Bailey overall may have been the Grizzlies’ most consistent scorer. He drilled 13 threes in the three games I watched, posting 20, 20 and 11 points. Bailey can’t be left open from deep or he will burn you. He can get his shot off the bounce when needed, but he’s at his best when he keeps his dribble to a minimum. He can be a plug-and-play three-point specialist in a pinch for a young Chattahoochee team.

2020 6-6 F Javani Brown (Johns Creek) has outstanding bloodlines, the son of former 15-year NBA veteran PJ Brown and coaching maestro Dee Brown. Javani is long and lean and has his best ball ahead of him. He can knock down the three, hitting six in a three-game span. He came on strong in the championship game, sinking three deep balls en route to 12 points. Right now he is a bit of a tweener at forward. I’d like to see him work on his post up game to really make him a three-level threat.

16U Smyrna Stars

Sean Rutledge

2020 6-5 PF Sean Rutledge (East Paulding) is a workhorse post with ball skills that will play a big role in new coach JW Cantrell’s offense. I fell in love with Rutledge’s toughness and agility. He is a big bruiser inside but he can ignite his own fast breaks with the dribble. He handles the ball well but is definitely at his best when anchored on the block. He is a bully on the boards with soft hands. He had 11 points and 13 rebounds in the title game. Rutledge has an up-and-under along with some ball fakes in his post arsenal. He plays the angles well and understands how to use his shoulders to score in defenders’ chests. Playing in a more traditional offense will suit his style of play well.

2020 6-2 PG Jordan Jefferson (Hiram) has length at the lead guard position. He possesses a nice three-point stroke as well, hitting four threes on his way to 14 points in the championship game. To no surprise, Jefferson uses his long arms to help out on the boards, corralling 5 rebounds and earning 3 steals. Jefferson could be a useful rotational piece his junior season.

16U Dynasty Elite

2020 6-5 SF Sterling Johnson (King’s Ridge) is a well-built swingman with a dangerous outside shot. He can slash effectively and makes him a threat to score from all three levels. Johnson has the makings of becoming a breakout candidate his junior season considering that Eric Coleman Jr. has transferred to Buford. It should be Johnson’s team at King’s Ridge. It will be interesting to see how new head coach Bob Martin uses Johnson in his offense.

Chase McKey

2020 6-6 F Chase McKey (Mt. Pisgah) is a long forward that is transferring from Johns Creek. He will need to get stronger, but McKey can score inside and out. He can knock down the three-point shot while also using a soft touch around the rim. He should be a quality piece at Mt. Pisah and provide help on both ends of the floor.

15U D-Favors Celtics

Marcus Samuel

2021 5-11 CG Marcus Samuel (Langston Hughes) is physically cable to handle the rigors of the varsity level. He already has one state championship ring as a role player off the bench for the Panthers. Samuel is a bowling ball powerful guard that put defenders to sleep once he got his shoulders by them. He turns the corner, he has a variety of nifty finishes at the rim. He piled in 23 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks in a blow out win. Samuel knows how to get two feet in the paint. The next part of his game that needs to develop is a three-point shot.

2021 5-9 PG KJ Webb (Langston Hughes) is a lengthy playmaker that gets after it on both sides. He can disrupt offenses with his on-ball defense which leads to opportunities on offense. He stuffed the stat sheet with 8 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 steals. Webb is a tough guard that should be a valuable piece at the varsity level in due time.

14U Cherokee Legacy

DJ Potts-Heard

2022 5-10 SG DJ Potts-Heard is a floor spacer and a varsity ready three-point shooter. He nailed 5 threes in his 25-point outburst to open sportalSlam. When his feet are set, Potts-Heard can carry a team from deep. He has some nice moves when getting to the basket as well. He is wired to score at this stage of his career. Once he develops more of a floor game as a playmaker, Potts-Heard could really become a big-time player. Either way, he is a sought-after freshman that will need to decide whether to play in Cherokee County or to venture out to private school. Depending on which route he chooses, he could make an impact as a rotational player right away.

2022 6-0 F Robbie Roper (Woodstock) provides energy as a garbage guy. He can do a little bit of everything out on the floor and has a good IQ that often puts him in a position to succeed. He sparked the Legacy in their opening game, springing the eventual champions to life with 6 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals.

2022 6-1 F Ezra Milton (Cherokee) is a physically mature forward that can knock down the three and use his athleticism to score inside. Milton is a banger that has skill offensively. He is another quality player that will be a part of Cherokee’s youth movement.

14U Georgia Grizzlies

2022 5-10 G Maestro Shadburn was aggressive getting to the basket all week. He is a true downhill slasher that does all his work around the rim. He can finish with both hands. Shadburn is a bundle of energy. He posted 10 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals against the Cherokee Legacy. Developing an outside shot will be the next step in his offensive development.

14U Team MTXE

Grant Rowe

2022 5-7 SG Grant Rowe (St. Pius X) is a money shooter. Rowe has the clutch gene, drilling a deep two off a head fake as time expired to advance onto the championship game. He may be little, but Rowe has a good feel for the game and can get red-hot from deep.

2022 5-10 G Cam Wingo (St. Pius X) was non-stop effort this weekend for Team MTXE. He embodies what being a future Golden Lion is all about: Mental toughness, Extra effort. Wingo is built like a football player and plays like it on the court with a controlled aggression. He is a leader on the floor and will do whatever it takes to win. He reminds me of 2019 6-3 F Zach Ranson, a Wake Forest football-commit, who played an integral part in St. Pius making back-to-back state championship appearances.
