Quick Takeaway: Hagans made some noise this summer by announcing that he would transfer to Oak Hill this year. After a change of plans, he decided to stay put at Newton County this year.

— Shun Williams (@OntheRadarHoops) July 21, 2017

— Shun Williams (@OntheRadarHoops) July 23, 2017
Quick Takeaway: Williams has long been identified as one of the best power forwards in the country. His style is reminiscent of Cheick Diallo or Bam Adebayo. He blends brute force to dunk anything within 2-feet and rebound in double digits nightly. Interestingly, Williams has been shooting the 3-point shot more effectively recently.
Robert Woodard – Mississippi Express – 2018
6’6″, 220, Small Forward
4-star prospect, Ranked #42 Nationally in the ESPN 100

— Shun Williams (@OntheRadarHoops) July 22, 2017
Quick Takeaway: Woodard is a do-it-all forward who can fill the stat sheet nightly. His length and athleticism allow him to defend multiple positions on the court. While his improving ball handling and passing ability will give him great value on the offensive end.
