Georgia followed up its team camp with the Top 100 camp, except for a few exceptions, highlighted most of the top players in the state. Today the focus is on the 2022 class which shows some depth at the guard spot. The event was limited to the number of participating 2022’s but it does give you snap shot of the future of this class.
6-1 PG Scoot Henderson (Kell) The Sexton like player has had a very good two weeks of basketball. He displayed his tough, attack style ball that exudes confidence that’s infectious to his teammates. He uses ball screens well but can also create space with dribble and quick first step. More a shot maker than shooter at this stage but if he works like he plays that will surely improve.
6-7 F Joyful Hawkins (Brunswick) The most highly thought of player with size in the class. Hawkins can affect the game on both ends, using his activity on the glass for tip-ins, flash jumpers in the lane, while being a help side shot blocker and rebounder.
6-7 F Chauncey Wiggins (Eastside) The most underrated of this group, Wiggins showed the potential of a future high major player. The long forward shoots it with range, showed solid ball handling ability to grab and go off the glass and was active defensively. As he gets stronger he’ll be very effective in the mid-post area and finishes in the lane.
6-2 PG Bruce Thornton (Milton) Another tough attacking guard that is built to absorb contact and finish through contact. He does a good job getting others involved and has the mindset of a leader. Like most of these guards, Thornton is a good defender with an added feature of his physicality. He relishes attacking the lane but has improved with his jumper and working to extend range.
6-5 SG Jalen Carruth (Lincoln Academy) The best long range shooter in the class, Carruth showed his versatility this weekend by attacking the basket. He has great length, handles to his spots and with that length has the ability to be a very god defender. This could be repeated for just about all the players listed, as he gets stronger, his success rate on drives will increase.
6-2 CG Chase Cormier (St. Pius X) Right up there with Carruth regarding long range shooting. He also showed his expanding game by attacking off the dribble and finding open players on the move. Mostly known as a shooter, Cormier is developing his point skills and over the last two weekends, showing vast improvement on running a team.
Others of note, point guards Devin Ferrell (Milton) Zocko Littleton (South Cobb), Kobe Davis (Langston Hughes) and forward E.J. Brown (Lanier County)
