Five ATL-Metro 7A Frontcourt Summer Stock-Risers – 2024’s
ATLANTA, GA – With fall leagues right around the corner, we continue our look at Summer Stock-Risers from the various Georgia classifications. After highlighting five 2024 backcourt guys residing in or around the ATL-Metro, we look toward the frontcourt in 7A.
By: Keith Agran
David Clark | 6-7 | Campbell
Really sets up more as a big guard at the next level with the way he can handle the ball and play the face-up game, but with his good size he plays more of a hybrid G/F role with the Spartans and sees the ball all over the floor with chances to score it, ton of variety in how he can beat you and has been a travel ball star who doesn’t get talked about as much as he probably should.
Casey Williams | 6-7 | Norcross
Arrived at Norcross from TN in time to have an eye-opening June with the Blue Devils, so athletic as an above-the-rim guy but we’ve seen some soft touch jump-shooting as well out to the arc, the inside-out combination skills are what attracts for sure as he’s physical in the contact game but will be exciting in the open floor and be able to draw less mobile bigs away from the basket.
Sam Maynard | 6-6 | West Forsyth
Had one of the summer’s best individual performances with a 41-pt game for Georgia Legacy at Battle for GA, that type of production sums up the work we saw from March thru July as he has added so much more consistency to the arsenal, always a solid shooter he’s now a multi-level threat that has to be marked carefully from 10 to 20 feet, it’s part lab work and part confidence-build for him but either way his stock skyrocketed through the last four months.
Nnadozie Onyirimba | 6-5 | McEachern
When you talk motor with prospects it goes well beyond effort level, it’s the full end-to-end attention to the little things and willingness to throw yourself into just about any scenario, that encompasses watching “Dozie” play for the Indians or AOT as you can hardly put your head down to your notebook and he’s out there affecting the game with pure will, makes a ton of hustle plays around the basket even though the offensive package needs honing but he still sets up as one of the true steals on the ATL-Metro trail.
Adonia Mussie | 6-9 | Meadowcreek
The move over to Meadowcreek from Parkview sets up really interesting as the Mustangs will be much improved with a gritty crew making up this roster, love highlighting guys whose main effect on the game is defense and Mussie is a top 3 shot-blocker in the ATL-Metro, he’s improved his shooting range way from the basket and that always brings in more eyeballs to guys his size, will be a lob-and-jam beast with aggressive guards like Daron Sturdivant and Richard Dunston pushing pace and looking upwards for the big fella.
