Achor Achor – Core4 – (Atlanta, Georgia) – 2020
Achor is a youthful forward who possesses the athleticism and skills needed to excel at the next level. His strength and quick feet in the painted area allow him to rebound and block shots. He displayed very good timing and instincts to snag balls out of the air. He even showed fairly good ball skill, especially for a 6-foot-9 forward. He transferred to Core4 Academy this season and should be poised for a big senior season.
Blake Hadley – Pebblebrook – (Mabelton, Georgia) – 2020
Hadley had one of the more impressive outings at the camp. The 6-8 forward showed his ability to elevate and affect the game above the rim consistently. He gets off the floor quickly, which makes him a tough cover on the block. He is equally as impressive in the open court as a scorer in transition. His blend of size and scoring ability should make him a stock-rising prospect among college coaches this winter.
Jusuan Holt – St. Francis HS – (Alpharetta, Georgia) – 2021
Holt should be on the list for fast-rising juniors in the Atlanta-Metro area. The 6-7 swing-forward is exactly what many coaches covet in the modern game of basketball. He has front-court length, which allows him to defend and rebound on the interior. However, he has very good perimeter skill to go with that size. He proved he can attack the rim with the drive to score. He also balances his skill-set with a consistent perimeter jumper. Holt is easy to root for because he also plays so hard. His high energy attitude seems to always lead to positive plays.
Andrew McConnell – Lanier HS – (Sugar Hill, Georgia) – 2021
If you do not pay attention closely enough, you may think that McConnell is just going through motions. That clearly is not the case as McConnell was one of the most talented and productive guards in the building last weekend. The 6-foot guard rarely gets sped up to go too fast. He plays with very good tempo and pace and will only shift into higher gears when absolutely needed. He connected on multiple 3-pointers from well beyond the arc during game play at the Super 64 Camp. Following this viewing there is good reason why 247 Sports has him ranked 122 in the nation in his class. High praise for the guard from Sugar Hill, but well deserved given his skill set and poise.
JoJo Petterson – Mt. Pisgah – (John’s Creek, Georgia) – 2021
Petterson was one of the biggest stock-risers for our staff last weekend. He played the point exclusively during camp games and showed a very good feel for the game. He is a willing passer when he gets to the paint, but he is equally adept at pushing the tempo in transition. Petterson’s ability to hit jumpers from the perimeter and especially off the pull-up in the mid-range will keep defenders off-balance. He appears to have a well-balanced skill set to go along with his athletic 6-3 frame.
