OTR #Power24 – Sunday Impression-Makers

MARIETTA, GA – Two more action-packed days made of OTR’s Power 24 as the last of four live periods once again rolled through the Atlanta-area.

After Recruit Look brought in a bevy of teams from the Midwest and further for Elite 32, another big turnout this past weekend featured a large amount of the Southeast’s top organizations.

From Sunday over at McEachern some Impression-Makers:

By: Keith Agran

Avery Thomas II | 2024 | Team Carroll Premier

Long and wiry and handled the ball as a big PG at times at 6-7 which were perhaps the best moments I saw from him in the game vs Midwest Basketball Club Cincy Gold, add in the ability to guard multiple spots and a slithery and clever drive game and this potential hybrid type at the next level set up really intriguing for the right program.

Tyler Johnson | 2024 | Florida Rebels

A dangerous combination of power and finesse as he at times went through people with force then came down next possession and went over them with high-flying lift, the power portion is a whole lot to deal with because at times with Rebels he plays almost as a guard at 6-7 facing up from the perimeter, but as a rebounder and space clearer he quickly becomes a smaller 4-man but one that has all the moxie and strength to pull that off at the next level.


Fred Bailey | 2024 | Team Mookie Betts

Calm & composed, a fine distributor, plenty of burst to create his own offense and with all the weapons Mookie deploys he racks up the assists too, strong upper and lower half it’s a college-ready body and one he’ll thrive with at Trevecca Nazarene in Nashville.

Josh Dixon | 2025 | TSF

Playing up with the 17s the Milton (GA) speedster had a huge game in his normal attack mode including the game-winner to beat Alabama Fusion at the buzzer, overall game and shot selection continue to mature.

Caleb White | 2024 | Alabama Fusion

Almost certainly the smallest guy out there most games but plays with a ton of heart and backs it up with a multi-level scoring package that needs to be carefully marked at each distance.

Shane Cherry | 2025 | BMaze Elite

Shifty and explosive both in the halfcourt and in transition as he played up with the 17s, he will shock opponents by blocking a shot at one end then retrieving the outlet and going coast to coast for the dunk at the other and this from a guy who hovers right around the 6-foot mark.
