LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., – The pocket of time in between summer travel basketball and high school competition is important for players. Training, development and exposure are all avenues that prospects take advantage of during the months leading up to the first practice in October.

In addition, he can finish with either hand and utilizes his strength to get around the bigs.
CJ Williams – Derland (FL) – 2021

He has floaters, pull-ups and wide angled lay-ups in his offensive arsenal and has a solid understanding in pick and roll situations.
RJ Noord – Columbia (GA) – 2021
Noord is a scoring machine who can put points on the board in a hurry. He has a nice combination of getting by you off the dribble and being able to make the perimeter jump shot with range. He has a tremendous pace and confidence to his game, and never feels like he is in trouble. Noord has quick hands and feet and is also active in the passing lanes. He should excel in the Columbia offense this year and make plays defensively.
Bobby Moore – Harrison (GA) – 2021
One of the top freshman in the state of Georgia, Moore exploded onto the scene this summer. He is quite potent in transition where he knows how to finish at or above the rim. He plays with great energy and can make plays at both ends of the floor due to his length and quickness. He has the ability to rebound in traffic and lead the fast break and he is a good passer. He’s a powerful driver and slasher from the wing and along the baseline in the half court and can scores through contact with great physical strength.
Madison Durr – St. Francis (GA) – 2021
Durr is lead guard with terrific size, strength, and length for his position. He sees the court and puts immediate pressuring on the defense by advancing the ball with the pass or the dribble. He can make plays in the quarter court by shaking his man to either side and utilizes his size and athleticism to finish at wide angles away from his body.
Frank Anselem – Westlake (GA) – 2021
Over the past year, Anselem has made drastic improvements to his game. His energy level and activeness is rare for a post player as he is relentless in running the floor and perusing the ball off the glass. He is surprisingly skilled and is a good passer that can make plays facing up or with his back to the basket. Anselem, who will be an impact player this year as a rebounder and shot blocker.
Jacob Comer – Prattville (GA) – 2021
He is more clever than quick and he has savvy which allowed him to get past defenders into the lane to either finish or dish off to teammates. His jump shot is solid out to the 3-point line and he can swish the mid-range pull-up as well. He is very crafty working along the baseline and has a smooth looking jump shot out to the stripe.
