OTR x SH Report Shootout Session 1 Standout Forward – June 20, 2024

On the Radar Hoops and Southern Hoops Report teamed up to host 48 teams from all over the state on Saturday. The competition was thick and the matchups didn’t disappoint. Exposure was at a premium too, college programs from all over the region in attendance as well as several different scouting services. Here, we break down some of the best forwards that we saw on Saturday.

Jaxson Jones – 2025 – Gainesville

Gainesville’s new roster features a handful of intriguing prospects, but Jaxson Jones stole the show on Saturday. Jones is a 6’7 forward with a college-ready frame and a high-motor. He provides a ton of production around the paint, extremely physical and active on the glass. Offensively, he can space the floor with his ability to shoot the three. Jones may be a late bloomer but he’s picking up traction at the most ideal time.

Josiah Parker – 2025 Lee County

Josiah Parker came into Saturday’s event as arguably the top prospect on the list and his performance didn’t disappoint. Parker is a 6’7 point forward that plays with a unique combination of power and finesse. He’s skilled in a variety of areas and has an excellent feel for the game. His athleticism was on full display as well, several highlight dunks over the span of two games. Parker’s offer list is now up to six schools and that number should continue to grow over the next couple weeks.

Duor Duor – 2026 – South Atlanta

Duor Duor has flown very much under the radar through his first two years of high school, but he used the opportunity on Saturday to showcase himself to a number of scouts and coaches. Duor gets taller and taller every time I see him, now up to around 6’9. He’s still fairly raw but possesses some unique skills for a player his size, able to handle it in the open floor and knock down shots from the mid-range. Duor will certainly be worth tracking over the next few years.

Sean Hamilton – 2026 – Cherokee

Sean Hamilton looks like a potential breakout candidate, and he put the scouts on notice this weekend. He brings strength, skill, and a ton of positional versatility to the table. Hamilton has a sturdy frame at 6’6 and refuses to let opposing bigs outwork him inside. He held his own against a much taller big in the first game, tallying multiple blocks in that game. With Sean Hamilton and Braylon Luster leading the charge, Cherokee looks like they’ll do just fine in the post-Sanford era.

Noah Brady – 2027 – Centennial

Noah Brady had a strong showing on Saturday and looks much improved heading into his senior year. Brady provided a ton of activity around the rim, 13 blocks and numerous rebounds throughout his two games of action. His ball skills look much sharper now and he’s much more agile, the rest of his body now catching up to his height. Brady will be one to keep tabs on this season as he should see a ton of minutes as a sophomore.
