While many college coaches are scrambling to find commitments in the class of 2015, there have been several that are already planning ahead for the future. The Georgia based travel program, Heat Check, features a guard oriented roster that is packed with class of 2016 prospects.

That success is evident is a 70-7 record over the course of the spring and summer months. They even finished the month of July with a tournament championship at the Las Vegas Fab 48. These individuals are poised to have an outstanding high school seasons and are bound to see their recruitment take off even more in coming months.
