OTR Breakout Camp – On the Rise – August 19, 2023
NORCROSS, Georgia, – There is no better place for underclassmen to get on the map than at the Breakout Camp hosted by On the Radar Hoops. Last weekend the stage was set, and a handful of players proved to be primed to be names that will be circulated among recruiting circles. Here is the final edition of standouts from the camp that was hosted at Norcross High School.
By: Jonathan Hemingway
Stanton German – Pope High School – 2026
German got it going in one of the later games of the day. He scored consistently off the dribble in the lane. He has some juice to accelerate and create separation from perimeter defenders. He also proved he could hit the rhythm 3-pointer in the flow of the offense. This combination of offensive skills points to German being a dynamic scoring threat in the high school streets.
Kevin White – Newton High School – 2026
White caught our eye with his passing during game play. He was able to sneak into the lane with his dribble moves and dish to players in scoring position. This knack for passing and his natural ability to slash to the bucket are positive signs for the sophomore from Newton County.
Bryson Jatta – Hillgrove – 2028
Jatta proved to be one of the better slashing wings at the camp. He zipped past defenders and finished in the paint consistently. He drips talent. His potential gives us hope that this will not be the last time his name in mentioned on this website.
Colben Landrew – Thompson – 2026
Landrew is a well-built wing-forward with good face-up skills. He showed an effective hesitation and go move that left opposing defenders leaning the wrong direction. The Alabama native is on the right path to be an effective player at this level and potentially at the next.
'26 Colben Landrew @colben_landrew ended the Summer on a high note for Game Elite with several offers. He's a skilled scoring wing at 6'5 that can score on all 3 levels. @gameeliteatl pic.twitter.com/EetOKEPTL5

Jahkiel Mahon – Shiloh – 2026
We loved Mahon’s ball skill at the camp. He used ball fakes to get defenders looking the wrong way and set up his next move. His blend of slashing and passing ability made him one of the better point guards in the building on Sunday afternoon. He also elevated his profile by being an aggressive defender and hassling opposing ball handlers.
'26 Jahkiel Mahon @jaymahon11 is a fiery PG that doesn't back down from the moment. Was a constant in the paint at camp and made good decisions with pullups/floaters over bigs.

Payne Smith – South Forsyth – 2026
Smith is the type of kid you love to have on your roster. He finds himself at the right spot at the right time consistently…a kind of a Johnny on the spot type of player. We liked his athleticism as well. He has some bounce in his legs which will allow him to compete and make winning plays.
D’Marley Elliott – St. Pius X – 2026
Elliott is one of the more versatile prospects we took note of at the camp. He played facing the basket on the wing often in this setting. However, he proved to be just as effective as a rebounder and paint finisher in traffic. He has the physical tools to make an impact as an underclassman.
Cooper Glover – Cherokee Bluff – 2026
The left-handed Glover carved out his spot at the camp with some timely shooting. He looked very comfortable pulling up off the dribble and draining jumpers. His solid mechanics and confidence project to more success.
Cooper Glover has good understanding how to use a screen to get open, knocking down a catch and shoot shot and attacking the defense to score or find teammates. pic.twitter.com/Uw9nV1CnM5

Lamarrion Lewis – Wheeler High School – 2026
Lewis settled into the role of a shooter at the camp. He found open areas around the arc and connected on a few jumpers from beyond the arc. We will keep tabs on the Cobb County native to see if this becomes a specialty.
Lamarrion Lewis did a good job of breaking defensive pressure, attacking in transition, passing and finding teammates.
Lewis also showed that he is a capable shooter from distance. pic.twitter.com/TW3HNHryJW
