ATLANTA, Ga., – The place to be in the month of July, regardless of shoe affiliation, are the On the Radar event series. Teams were able to get some of the best match-ups outside of their normal circuit stops. Hundreds of college coaches filed in to watch all of the game, which allowed dozens of prospects to earn offers. Here are the names the stood out above the rest during the month of July.
Class of 2018
Khavon Moore – ATL Xpress
Moore is a unique talent who stands at 6-foot-8. He has lead guard skill and shot making ability from the perimeter. He picked up offers from Memphis and Texas A&M after Elite 32 Session II.
Emmitt Williams – E1T1
Williams was a blur at the Super 6 Showcase. He was blocking shots on the defensive end and getting offensive putbacks on the other. He reports offers from Dayton, Florida State, Florida, Georgia and Miami during the month of July.
Nassir Little – Showtime Hoops
Little showed all types of athleticism at the Super 6 Showcase. He was terrific in transition and finished with incredible dunks. He holds offers from Florida State, Florida, Louisville, Southern California and Virginia Tech. Little made such an impression that he entered the BrandonClayScouting.com ELITE 60 rankings.
Class of 2019
Christian Brown – Georgia Stars
Brown is an athletic forward who can finish with authority in the lane. At 6-6 he has the size to snatch rebounds off the glass and then the skill to lead the break. Brown currently has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Georgia, Tennessee, Georgia Sate, Western Kentucky, and College of Charleston.
Vernon Carey – Nike Team Florida
Carey is a major force along the front-line. He disrupts the game on the defensive end with his long wingspan and great activity. He reports offers from Baylor, Florida, Georgia State, Miami and Louisville.

Ashton Hagans – Geogria Stars
The secret is out, Hagans is one of the state’s premier scorers as just a rising sophomore. He is terrific in transition and can seemingly score in every way possible.
Anthony Edwards – Atlanta Xpress
One of the most productive young forwards that our staff saw over the summer, Edwards is long and athletic. He excels in an up tempo environment, where he runs the floor in transition finishing above the rim.
BJ Mack – Team United
Mack has a game made for production. He has soft hands and nimble feet. He gets the most out of his ability and schools are recognizing his talent already. He picked up an offer from North Carolina State this month.
Marcus Purcell – Showtime Hoops
Purcell is a natural scorer. He is a guard who can knock down long range jumpers while also shaking free for mid range jumpers. He is also equally good at dishing to his teammates. He picked up an offer from Florida International this July.
Class of 2021
Zion Harmon – We All Can Go
Normally recaps are reserved for the upperclassman or at least prospects that have played a high school game. However, Harmon is such a special talent that he finds his way into the mentions as just a rising eighth grader. His advanced skill and poise as a point guard allowed him to play and produce on the EYBL circuit this year.
