New names emerge at the OTR Breakout Camp
Atlanta, Ga — Florida Gators wing Kowacie Reeves Jr. kicked off camp with a positive word for the eager, up and coming underclassmen in attendance. Reeves Jr. started his story at OTR Breakout Camp and this year new names followed suit.
Jabarri Williams, Valdosta HS, 2025
Williams, the reigning Region 1-6A Newcomer of the Year, looked like a seasoned veteran throughout the day. He was in control from start to finish and played with a calmness beyond his years. The Wildcat sophomore is the total package at the lead guard spot and put everyone at OTR Breakout Camp on notice. This season, don’t be surprised to see Williams become a household name around the state.
Kam Plummer, Houston County HS, 2025
We were impressed with Plummer’s uptempo pace offensively and tenacity on the defensive end. He demonstrated discipline and IQ on both sides of the ball that’ll certainly buy him more varsity minutes in year two. Expect the 6-foot-1 combo guard to be a key piece to the Bears puzzle moving forward.
Malik Gillespie, Houston County HS, 2026
One of the better midrange players on hand, Gillespie, was tough to deal with once he got inside the arc. He displayed nice elevation on pull-up jumpers and made athletic finishes at the rim. The mid-state freshman caught the attention of several evaluators in the building and looked ready to be thrown into the varsity fire right out the gate.
Samuel Shoptaw, Lowndes HS, 2025
Fresh off a South Alabama offer, Shoptaw came into camp with a noticeable swagger. He welcomed a competitive, physical atmosphere and understood how to play through it. Shoptaw’s offensive efficiency was notable, but his junk-yard-dog approach stole the show.
CJ Harper, The Paideia School, 2026
Harper is a south-paw lefty with a superb offensive arsenal. His craftiness enabled him to make high degree of difficulty plays through cracks and crevices in defenses during live scrimmages. This kid’s understanding of the game and ability to orchestrate in pressure moments are valuable assets that truly make him an extension of a coach on the court.
