Tournament of Champions Recap – January 3, 2020
AJ White has some unbelieve scoring runs during the Tournament of Champions.
Marietta, Ga. –The Tournament of Champions Classic has set the bar high for tournaments statewide. Wheeler High School had plenty Division One graded prospects take part in the two day tournament. With that collection of talent in one place, please believe that we walked away with plenty of knowledge. Here are several prospects who stood above the rest:
AJ White – (Alpharetta, Ga) – Chattahoochee – 2021
When talking about the elite scorers in the city of Atlanta you can’t have a conversation without AJ White’s name coming up. He’s one of the best small guards we’ve seen in years. He can score in a variety of ways from bouncing up to knock down 3’s off the dribble or driving to the basket and making floaters

Jamall Clyce – (Mableton, Ga) – Pebblebrook – 2021
Clyce is a fluid athlete, running the wing in transition and finishing plays on drives to the basket. Offensively, He is most effective from the high post where he can pass and is automatic when his feet or set and he has time to get his shot off. He can also post smaller defenders up and use his physical strength to score over the top of them.
Ezra Ausar – (Snellville, Ga) – Shiloh – 2021
Ausar is a extra-long, lean and athletic power forward that makes plays on the break in the low, high post and on the glass on both ends. He finishes above the rim on the break, with tip dunks and on all clear paths to the goal. He also scores with touch around the rim with either hand.
Jordan Mitchell – (Snellville, Ga) – Shiloh – 2021
He’s a long and athletic live body around the rim. Right now, his niche is his ability to go get the ball off the glass, both in traffic as well as out of his area. He’s very mobile, runs the floor well, has quick bounce around the rim to dunk or block shots, and a little bit of touch to work with around the basket.
Unsigned Seniors Shine
Cam Bryant – (Hampton, Ga) – Dutchtown
Bryant is a power player and good athlete who can be a “beast” in the paint. He is a high-volume rebounder and equally good finisher in traffic who brings a rugged mentality with him to the court.He’s a straight-line driver who can connect on jumpers consistently from the high post to the short corner.
Cam Bryant played a nice overall game for Dutchtown today to start off the @ClassicToc, scoring 18 points with the game-winning basket. Athletic, energetic competitor. He’s made improvements as a ball-handler and decision maker on the move. pic.twitter.com/48GF8b85Ul

Terrance Edwards – (Tucker, Ga) – Tucker
He is tough to stop off the dribble and utilizes his length, and athleticism to finish through contact as well as over it. If his drive gets cut off he exhibits a solid pull jumper at the elbow area and he can connect on jumpers out to the three-point stripe. Edwards always shows up in the big games and has been great this season for the Tigers.
Jermontae Hill – (Tucker, Ga) – Tucker
This may have been the best game that I’ve seen from Hill as of recent. He can slash to the rim when an opening presents itself in the defense and can be hard to stop in transition. In addition to his ability to slash, Hill hit jumpers from the mid-range area and a pair of three-pointers. Defensively, he has the potential to defend multiple positions and the intellect to understand various schemes.
