OTR Super 64 – Standout Forwards (Rickers) – August 29, 2023
Camp season has officially kicked into full gear and OTR’s Super 64 camp on Sunday provided a one-stop shop for some of Georgia’s best talent. While we saw plenty of popular prospects and familiar faces, a handful of sleepers used the opportunity to break out themselves. These are a couple of forward prospects that separated themselves from the pack.

Josiah Parker – Lee County – 2025
Josiah Parker has been steadily picking up steam as he enters his junior year and if Sunday was any sort of precursor to what we’ll see in the season, Lee County may be worth the drive. Parker is a 6’7 point forward with a broad frame and diverse skillset. He’s extremely unselfish and his court vision shined on Sunday as he racked up the assists. Parker received his first D1 offer from Presbyterian the day prior to camp.
Jalan Wingfield – Thomas County Central – 2026
Jalan Wingfield was one of the top prospects on hand this weekend and he’s been making a strong case for the top spot in Georgia’s 2026 class. With his big 6’7 frame, Wingfield is a force both inside and out. The jumper was looking pure and he’s shooting it with a ton of confidence right now. We also got to see him handle the rock a good bit and his perimeter skillset has obviously added a ton of polish. Georgia, Cincinnati, DePaul, Kennesaw State, and Seattle have offered.
Daniel Daramola – Greenforest – 2025
The 2025 class brought out some heavy hitters on Sunday and Daniel Daramola made sure to remind people that he belongs near the top of that list. At 6’8, Daramola is extremely mobile and light on his feet. This really plays to his advantage when chasing boards or challenging shots at the rim and he did a lot of that on Sunday. The touch on his mid-range shot looks to be far improved from last year and I think the consistent shot making will take his game to the next level.
Alpha Barry – Central Gwinnett – 2024
One of the highest ceilings of anyone at the camp belonged to Alpha Barry who recently arrived at Central Gwinnett by way of New York. The 6’8 forward has a great motor and some special athleticism, still a ton of untapped potential. Barry is an effective rim-runner, best suited for a fast-paced game. His arrival at Central Gwinnett may be just what they needed to compliment a talented group of perimeter guys.
Whitfield Hyde – Dunwoody – 2025
Whitfield Hyde is a new name on my radar, a 6’7 junior who’s been sidelined with injuries through his first two years at Dunwoody. He held up well against some top-tier forwards on Sunday and showcased multiple ways in which he can affect the game. Hyde finished with a number of crafty scores around the paint, utilizing his nimble feet and nearly 7-foot wingspan. The forward duo of Whitfield Hyde and Phillip Ryan bring hope to Dunwoody entering year one with new head coach Yussef Jasmine.
