Atlanta, Ga– The On the Radar Hoops Super 64 Camp provided the perfect stage for many regional players to display their skills to college coaches and scouting services. Here are a few players that caught our eye
Tyler Johnson – wing – Cedar Shoals (GA) – 2020
Johnson is an active wing that plays more like a small forward than a shooting guard at this point but as he improves his range could easily excel at both positions. He runs the outside lane in transition and is a good spot up shooter with time. he also has an excellent mid-range game where he can knock down shots off the catch and the dribble.
Tay Watson – forward – Newnan (GA) – 2019
Watson is a long and super athletic forward. He excels in transition by running the floor like a deer where he finishes above the rim with flare over or around defenders. He has great size and not only jumps high but quick. He rebounds at rim level and blocks or changes shots in and out of his area.
Tre Clark – guard – Newton (GA) – 2019
Clark is a shooting guard that can knock down open threes off the catch or dribble and also has a very dangerous mid-range pull up. Thomas has a nice-looking stroke and is very confident in his ability to make open shots and pull ups over defenders.
Jalen Harper – guard – Pebblebrook (GA) – 2019
His shot is crisp with a high release and he gets it off quick. He has a solid frame with deceptive amount of bounce and overall athleticism. He has a high basketball IQ and knows how to move without the ball to get open. He has improved his dribble-drive game and does a solid job of getting to the basket
Cam Rowland – guard – Mountain View (GA) – 2019
Rowland is a true lead guard that has a tight handle. He can change speeds and directions on a dime. He is also a good passer with matching court vision. He does not hesitate to advance the ball on the break and is a terrific drive, draw and kick passer where he can deliver the ball with either hand.
On the Rise
Cole Middleton – Pace Academy (GA)
Middleton is a versatile forward who presents mismatch problems for opposing defenders with his length, athleticism, and skill set. He can face and hit open 18 footers, attack off the dribble, and catch and finish on the move. He also passes the ball well out of the post and moves well in transition.
Sutton Smith – Denmark (GA)
He is a true point who makes plays for himself and others, has a tight handle, excellent court vision, and pinpoint passing ability. He can drive to score or dish and shows great ability to read the defense and make decisions while in attack mode.
