OTR Hoops: Summer Jam 16U Standouts – April 23, 2024

Summer Jam was the most loaded event of the spring so far for OTR with just about every notable Georgia program in attendance. We saw multiple Top-100 prospects go head-to-head and some of the top circuit teams battle it out for bragging rights. These are a couple of players that made their mark in the 16u division.

Sam Funches – 2026 – Team Thad EYBL (Pictured Above)

Sam Funches came into Summer Jam as one of the most highly touted players on the list and he dominated interiors in the 16u division all weekend. He put up 20+ points and 10+ rebounds in all four games. Funches has good size and physical tools at 6’10, far beyond most in his class. A lot of his points come off of dunks around the rim and second chance opportunities, but Funches also flashed the ability to step out and hit the three-ball this weekend. Funches already holds offers from 20+ D1 schools.

Thomas Glanton – 2026 – EYA Sports

Thomas Glanton made quite a name for himself this weekend. On Saturday, Glanton brought EYA back from down 30 to beat the Atlanta Celtics. He came back on Sunday and went for 25 points against Team Thad. Glanton is a volume shooter and lets it go with a ton of confidence. He was also effective in pick and roll looks, making the right reads and scoring when he had the space. EYA’s 16u bunch made a statement this weekend and Glanton was largely responsible.

Nathan Earl – 2026 – Team Huncho 3SSB

Nathan Earl stepped up to anchor the backcourt for Team Huncho as Kingston Whitty nursed an ankle and Earl ran a very smooth show. Earl is lethal from beyond the arc and he made sure to remind us of that this weekend. One thing every point guard needs is pace and Earl has it, able to time up his screens and toy with defenders using different speeds. Earl currently holds 4 division 1 offers, his most recent coming from Stetson in the fall.

Khalid Worthy – 2026 – Atlanta Celtics 3SSB

Khalid Worthy was forced to sit this year at Holy Innocents but he’s now back and looking better than ever. Worthy has added another inch or two in the past few months, a legit 6’7-6’8 now. He excels in his various roles with the Celtics, able to play a small-ball 5 or slashing stretch 4. Most of Worthy’s production comes at the rim, whether it be finishing in traffic or blocking shots, but he also showed us a smooth stroke from three. Expect to hear his name a lot this summer.

Randall Wimbush – 2026 – GAA

We were first introduced to Randall Wimbush this winter with Dutchtown but he showed us a whole new side of his game this weekend at Summer Jam. Wimbush was beaming with confidence and that translated to some big offensive outputs. He shot the three-ball at a high clip all weekend, knocking down shots off the catch and the dribble. His speed and quickness can be troubling for opposing guards, especially on a smaller court. If this weekend was a sign of things to come, Wimbush will take a major step forward as a junior at Dutchtown.
