#GBCALive SE Regional – Eye-Catching Combos
EMERSON, GA – The first of two live period weekends again went down at the LakePoint Champions Center, and the GBCa continues to do an amazing job setting this up for teams and most importantly college coaches.
Took in some Sunday Regional action June 18, here were some eye-catching 1-2 punches from the day.
By: Keith Agran
Caleb Jones-Dicks (2024) & Miles Clanton (2025) | North Gwinnett
Add in 2024 guard Charlie Gallagher to make a very solid trio that will tough to guard, Jones-Dicks has been a stalwart for Sunshine Elite in travel ball and is the trigger man with an array of speedy drives and dribble-induced space-opening moves on the perimeter, Clanton (pictured) is in 5th gear all the time and that effort level separates him as he will outwork and outfight around the basket while adding in some face-up variety that caught the eyes of a few coaches.
Kamden Stone (2025) & Ford Felton (2026) | Centennial
The Knights were as hurt by the local “transfer portal” as anyone in the ATL-Metro losing 3 starters and the lion’s share of their scoring from last year in the mere poof of a magic wand, but an intriguing array of youngsters will step up and into big roles and the ball will be in the hands of the fun to watch Stone (pictured), he’s got really good shooting range and a fearless approach to getting at the rim, Felton is long and lean at 6-6 and showed signs of the interior presence he can become with some more meat on the frame and combines with 6-5 2027 Noah Brady for a frontcourt twosome to watch going forward in Roswell.
Mason Lawrence & Connor Scott (both 2024) | Cambridge
This is a veteran bunch with most everyone back and healthy from a team that didn’t lack for skill and effort a year ago, a 2026 class that they like over in Bear country adds to things but it will be Lawrence (pictured) in the frontcourt and Scott in the backcourt who’ll need to be catalysts, Lawrence has come a long way and his activity level and athletic lift at 6-6 are beginning to gain interest from college circles, Scott is a marksmen who can be streaky so more consistency in his aggressiveness in not just settling for jumpers could be huge, would not shock me to see this team make a push for the 2-seed in Region 6-5A with all this experience.
Luke Jack & Griffin Latimer (both 2025) | Creekview
The inclusion of 2024 PG Will Kline makes this a versatile trio the way he likes to push pace, before leaving the game after taking a spill on his tailbone/hip area Jack (pictured) was showing off the myriad of skills that have vaulted him up the 2025 class rankings most notably during the last 3 months with Wood Elite, Latimer is all guts and a whole bunch of sneaky skill particularly as a deep shooter that catches folks off guard at his size, under new Coach Tyler Whitlock Region 6-6A becomes really interesting for the Grizz.
Brennan Wansley & Asa Williams (both 2024) | Buford
Wansley (pictured at top) was the best player I saw all day June 18 doing a variety of things from the 2-spot with strength and agility, his strong play with Team SMASH this spring has helped advance him far from a solid contributor on last year’s bunch which featured a veteran 2023 class in the lead to a clear star type player now who can take over a game in spots from any level, Williams alongside (and not forgetting the likes of Chase Robinson, Kyle Carpenter and Torre Costin also in the backcourt) provides brute force playing as a sort of G/F hybrid around 6-3 who can take his strong frame inside or use a soft touch from the perimeter to keep defenses honest.
