OTR Hoops Reports – GBCA Live Period “Floor Generals” – June 27, 2023
GBCA Live Georgia: Floor Generals
The June live periods have come to a close, two great weekends at LakePoint full of the region’s top talent and coaches from across the country. Session 2 narrowed the field to strictly Georgia teams and provided for some competitive bracket play across the board. Floor generals seemed to be in high demand and there were plenty good ones in attendance. Here were a few that caught my attention.

2024 PG Feroyre High – Campbell
There aren’t too many players in the state that have helped themselves more than Feroyre High this month. He’s no longer the sidekick to David Clark. High’s taken a huge step in his development and the duo now looks like one of the most dangerous 1-2 punches in 7A. High is smooth and speedy in the open floor, has a consistent outside shot, and has good size for a point guard at 6’3. High earned his first offer from Mississippi Valley State back in April and his name was circulating amongst other D1s this weekend.
2025 PG Austin Mosby-Weems – Dutchtown
Despite graduating some key pieces, Dutchtown was one of the best teams I saw this weekend at LakePoint and left with some wins over top Georgia programs. Mosby-Weems has taken over the backcourt duties and provides a real bucket-getter on the perimeter while the long, athletic bigs clean up inside. Mosby-Weems hit on a countless number of pull-up jumpers and that’s his bread and butter, shooting it off the dribble. He’s got a strong build too, able to overpower opposing guards and wear them down over time. I’m penciling Mosby-Weems in as an early breakout candidate heading into the season.
2024 PG O’Brien Watkins – Carrollton (pictured above)
O’Brien Watkins has upped his stock tremendously over the past two weekends, putting up consistent numbers for Carrollton and challenging every guard that stepped in front of him. Watkins loves to get downhill and it’s usually two points when he finds a lane to the basket. He’s one of the best finishers I’ve seen in the state, so powerful and crafty in the air. Once defenses began collapsing on him, Watkins was able to find open shooters and rack up assists too. The mid-range jumper was working for him too and should be encouraging to those who question his shooting ability. Watkins will be playing at both OTR live periods and is a name that should be circled a lot.
2024 PG Luke Flynn – Walton
Luke Flynn seemed to be one of the most popular names both this weekend and last, everyone eager to see what his recruitment would do. He shined in the spotlight on Sunday, sparking a second half surge to take down cross-town rival Wheeler. He finished that game with 21 points and averaged over 18 PPG for the weekend. Flynn’s downtown shooting has been on display for years but the physical traits are shining now more than ever. He’s strong in the upper body and embraces a physical game, faster than most give him credit for too. Flynn’s list of offers grew this month adding Samford, Holy Cross, and William & Mary.
2025 Cade Lomas – Sequoyah
Cade Lomas is a player that really put himself on the map this spring while shining at OTR events and he’s carried that momentum over into June, a few strong weekends with Sequoyah. Lomas steps into a much larger role this year but he looked ready, averaging 16 PPG on the weekend including a 21-point outing against Savannah where Lomas hit 6 three-pointers. He can get hot from beyond the arc and has some range that might surprise you. I love the confidence that Lomas is playing with and it feels like he’s out to prove something. He’ll have the opportunity this year with Sequoyah.
