AAU Workout Visits – Georgia Legacy 2024
ATLANTA, GA – Always try and make it a point to see GA Legacy up close each Spring, they being one of the organizations who truly embraced me in the early days of my quest to get into Scouting.
Their 2024 returns virtually intact from a solid summer in the 16s last year, and they’ve added some interesting pieces as well.

The clear standout from the workout as he showed off some of the added physicality he frankly needed to take the next step, feel like the consistency and make % from deep range has also taken a notable step as he drained a bunch of 3’s, at 6-6 and a good athlete this is quickly rounding into a guy to track this summer and into his senior season with West this fall.
The recruiting jewel of the crew and there’s little speculation about that, wasn’t as sharp when I dropped by as he seemingly normally is particularly in tournament play where last summer he had several show-stopping performances and this spring he’s playing very good all-around ball in the early going as well, an athletic gem he is set for another eye-popping summer and the kind of senior season potentially which draws a higher level set of eyeballs his way.
Can’t say enough about the forward steps Maynard has taken and the obvious effect it’ll have on his recruiting, a little taller and unquestionably stronger than lastly year at around 6-5 he put forth a really good junior season for the Wolverines and coming over to Legacy makes a ton of sense as the style fits him to a ‘T’, love the shooting range easily past the arc and footwork as a back to the basket guy and will end up impressing more nights than not.
Always seems an eye-catcher with a motor and effort-level which is consistently high, like his prospects as a next-level lead guard but he needs to be cautious about his all-go style of barrelling to the basket in search of contact as that can wear you down, he does possess a slower more cerebral pace and a mid-range game which is in a better state than last spring, sneaky interesting college prospect.
Another new big to the Legacy rotation and like Damerell and Maynard the way the team plays is a good fit, will be the man in the middle for the Eagles next fall and is putting in a ton of work on both his back to the basket maneuvers as well as more face-up shooting, has hit the weight room and seems ready to use the travel season as a big-time barometer to prepare for what could be another successful season for MBCA.
