The 2022 and 2023 put college coaches on notice that the talent in Georgia will remain strong going forward. These are some of the top performers I saw this weekend.
2022 6-2 PG Bruce Thornton (Milton) One of the toughest guards in the class, plays with a winning mentality. He does what his team needs and does it passionately. Thornton uses his strength and solid handle to beat defenders to the paint while ready to make the right pass or finish. He’s relied upon to be the leader on a young team with not much size but a lot of heart. The talented point guard will surely be one of the guards in the Southeast.
2022 6-0 PG Scoot Henderson (Kell) When you talk about heart and hustle, Henderson has to be in the equation. He put his Kell team on his back to beat regular season 7A favorite Grayson, in a playoff type atmosphere. He attacks the basket with a Sexton type fearlessness but can also make shots and isn’t immune to rebounding in the trenches. His play garnered multiple offers this weekend with more certainly to come.
2023 5-11 PG Isaiah Collier (Wheeler) The crafty pg will be fun to watch over the next four years. The 2019 UnderClassman All-American Game MVP has a knack, at an early stage, that allows him to move defenses with his dribble to create for himself and others. He does a nice job of mixing his scoring ability with getting his teammates involved and keeps that energy on the defensive end ass well. Heady and loves to compete.
2023 5-11 CG Canaan Carlyle (Milton) As with any freshman listed here, he plays with upperclassman feel for the game. He knows how to get his shots and doesn’t mind taking big shots in clutch situations. Solid ballhandler who can play on and off the ball because of his scoring ability. Has range out the line but isn’t afraid to attack and finish in the lane.
2022 6-8 C Malique Ewin (Berkmar) This kid has a chance to be one of the best F/C in the Southeast. He has a solid frame work to build on with his ability to hit the 17-footer, make plays for others from the high post and is a quality outlet passer. Ewin missed last season but expect him to be a main piece on a very good Berkmar team.
2022 6-3 CG Jermahri Hill (Berkmar) This was my first look at Hill and I liked what I saw in the sophomore. He plays with a smooth handle without the incessant dribble, makes p lays for there’s and can create his own opportunities. Showed a good stroke.
2022 6-6 F Jaylon Taylor (Buford) One of the few I saw that can affect the game on the defensive end. He comes with a good motor, athleticism and toughness. He gets most of his offense on hustle plays but does have a solid jumper. Tough on the offensive glass.
2022 6-1 PG Zocko Littleton (South Cobb) One of the better shooters in the class, Littleton can really stretch the defense. When he starts utilizing his ability to shoot to setup his drives he’ll be a major problem for defenses. Solid ball-handler and defender.
2022 5-11 PG Devin Ferrell (Milton) A tough hard-nosed point guard that defends with vigor. He will Milton two of the top young defensive guards in the state. More an attack guard o offense than shooter, he does have solid form on jumper.
2022 62 CG Dominik Henderson (Monroe) The 2018 UnderClassman All-American game MVP continues to improve. His length and willingness to defend make him tough on the X side of the ball. His ability to finish and make shots rounds out his game.
2022 6-1 CG Chase Cormier (St. Pius X) The lefty has in the gym range. He is a confident and consistent shooter from downtown and is now understanding that his stroke is a gateway to attacking the basket.
