2024 Prospects to Track – Part 2
Marietta, Georgia- The second Live Period in July for On the Radar Power 24 showcased some of the top basketball prospects. Over 200 teams and 400+ college coaches came through from July 21-24 to catch some of the best talent in the country.

Kavien Jones | Team Mookie
The 2024 6’6″ forward out of Link Academy already has a college build and he still has two years left of high school. Jones was dominant playing up in the 17U age bracket; embracing the physicality of larger opponents, dominating inside and out. Finishes with authority at the rim and showed he can hit from the 3. Very aggressive and assertive prospect with a very high ceiling. Jones currently holds D1 offers from Presbyterian College and Samford.
Feels good to be back at home with @BGABasketball and @CoachTreyMeyer

Denaj Kimber | EAB Tennessee
The 6’3″ point guard from Fulton High School was one of my new favorite players to watch this past weekend. Kimber is a very smooth, natural player and the game appears to come very easy to him. Kimber had several big time games in front of large crowds of college coaches and I’m not sure why a college coach hasn’t pulled on an offer. The lefty shoots at a high clip, gets to the rim, and was one of the team’s leading rebounders all weekend. Big time stock riser in the 2024 class with a huge upside.
Cole McCormick | Team Mookie
Team Mookie has several solid prospects and Cole McCormick stood out all weekend long. McCormick is a high IQ player that uses his body well to get the shots he wants. Has great body control for his size at 6’5″ and does well getting to the rim. McCormick shoots well from deep, had multiple games with several 3-pointers. Has the confidence to take over games late and doesn’t shy away from physical contact. McCormick holds D2 offers from Lee and University of Alabama – Huntsville.
Will Moore | Atlanta Timberwolves – White
After taking the first Live Period weekend off due to an ankle injury, Moore picked up right where he left off. Moore does well shooting off the catch and can connect from NBA range consistently. Moore also does well creating his own shot and scoring in traffic. The 6’5″ prospect has incredible length and with a 40″ vertical paired with his impressive athleticism is a scary sight. Moore holds 6 D1 offers, most recently picking up an offer from Winthrop following his performance at Power 24.
2024 Will Moore @willmoore3311 (@GTScott717/@wfhsbasketball) showed the potential he has and why so many schools are tracking him at the @OTRHoops Power 24 after returning from a month off after an ankle injury

Cam Simpson | Southeast Elite
In one of the better 16U match ups, Cam Simpson, went off connecting on 4 3’s to get the win over Team Mookie. The 6’6″ guard prospect out of Oak Ridge High School had several big time games, making several 3’s and showing his athleticism finishing at the rim. Simpson had a big showing during the June live period and didn’t slow down in his last live period performance of the summer. Big time stock riser in the 2024 class and I expect a significant uptick in his recruitment heading into his junior year.

JP Wells | Team Dickerson
JP Wells is the glue for Team Dickerson and was consistent all travel season. Wells does the little things well and continually sacrifices his body for the greater good. Wells is a savvy guard at 6’1″, who continually makes plays and can see a play evolving before most guards his age. Despite his stature, Wells is continually one of the better rebounders, has a keen sense for the ball and finishes put-backs at a high rate in the paint. Wells is constantly active on the defensive end with deflections and steals, and can finish well in transition. Wells has become a more consistent shooter that can hit from the 3 or mid-range. Big time stock riser in the 2024 class and has high expectations with the potential of leading his Walton team to a playoff berth in 7A.

Brett Wright | AOT
Brett Wright has been one of the most consistent shooters in the 2024 class this travel season. Wright picked up two offers following his performance at Power 24, and it’s only the beginning for this prospect. The 6’6″ wing is one of the more versatile players with a huge upside and his stock will only increase after announcing his decision to transfer to Huntington Prep for the remainder of his high school career. Will be a player to track heading into his junior year and competing against some of the best high school players in the country.

Kam Wright | 1 Family
Kam Wright is one of the most fun players in the 2024 class and being on a stacked southeast team, it just adds to the excitement. Wright is incredibly active for his team; scoring at a high rate, active defensively, and making big time plays in transition. The 6’6″ guard has showed off his athleticism and high-level play all season, and the offers continue to flow in. Wright currently holds 8 D1 offers and picked up offers from Florida A&M, Jacksonville State, and Kennesaw State following his performance at Power 24.
