2027 | Ethan Allen | Union Grove High School

Ethan Allen made a name for himself by being the best on ball defender at camp. Allen stayed active defensively, fully engaged in each play, utilizing his quick feet to find openings to pick his opponents a part. Allen was teamed up with Nasir Anderson, and together found a way to utilize their strengths to win out in game settings. Allen is a past first guard, from the second he gets a steal to inbounding the ball, Allen is immediately looking up the court to find openings but if need be, Allen showed he could score the ball in a variety of ways. Allen had a quick release from the pull-up and some nice floaters inside. Allen has a winning mentality and with his high IQ play for a young guard, will make an immediate impact for his high school team.


2027 | Nasir Anderson | Savannah Country Day School

After the highly anticipated discussions going into the camp, Nasir Anderson was easily the best prospect at the Freshman Academy. The Savannah native showed he could do it all; scoring at a high percentage at all 3-levels and had the full defensive package, Anderson proved he’s going to be a name that will be mentioned the next four years of his high school career. Anderson showed he’s confident and comfortable with the basketball, from running the offense to attacking inside and finishing. Anderson had quite a few outside jumpers, showing his range and depth to his game. Anderson has a very high ceiling that will be highly sought out at the next level.



2027 | Gehrig Felix | Grayson High School

The 6’5″ forward, Gehrig Felix, is going to open some eyes over the next few years with Grayson. Felix has the size and understanding of the game, that will only continue to develop and grow playing alongside some of the best upperclassmen in the country. Felix has a great feel and touch around the basket, anticipating reads on both ends and positioning to grab rebounds consistently. Felix had several easy put-backs by outworking his opponents inside and the strength to finish over longer and bigger guards. Felix has had quite the offseason at camps and will continue to open up some eyes this season.


2027 | Gavin Fountain | Pace Academy

Gavin Fountain was a player that easily stood out during the duration of the Freshman Academy. Gavin Fountain stands at 6’5″ and has some of the best footwork and defensive skills I’ve seen for a big at this age. Fountain did well staying in contact and protecting the basket, utilizing his body and reach to get blocks and cause deflections downlow. Fountain made it look easy offensively, from squaring up inside or utilizing footwork on the block to make a quick move to the rim. Fountain will be able to continually develop under Coach White’s leadership and will be a prospect to circle this season.


2027 | William Gause | Grayson High School


William Guase is a heady guard that does not let up when going downhill. The past few camps, Gause has scored a majority of his points off attacking the basket and cutting to the basket for easy points inside. Guase is also able to pick up his points from scoring in transition off his quickness and aggressiveness defensively. Gause will be another freshman prospect to keep an eye on at Grayson as the pipeline continues to develop and show why they’re one of the best high school basketball teams in the country.
