The OntheRadarHoops.com Invitational features many of the top of individual performers on some of the top teams from around the state of Georgia.  The Peach State is well known for being rich in talent and prospects.  This year is no exception as multiple top 100 players will be competing on Saturday afternoon.  Here is a look at some of the notable individuals who will play at the OntheRadarHoops.com Invitational.


Temarcus Blanton of Locust Grove, Ga. could be the most impactful player that hits the court on Saturday afternoon.  The 6-foot-4 athletic wing play singed to play at South Carolina next season will square off with Tulane signee Keith Pinckney from Miller Grove in the 3:30 game.  Peachtree Ridge boasts a strong frontline play behind the strength of 6-8 post Amir Warnock who signed with Jacksonville University.  Warnock and the Lions will match up with Columbia signee Kyle Castlin of Hillgrove in the 6:30 game.  Make sure that you watch Eric Hamilton from Duluth High School in the 12:30 game.  The 6-7 forward signed recently to play for Wichita State who is a top 25 team in this year’s polls.  Kendall Crute from North Cobb Christian signed with perennial MAC contender Ohio University and will play at 2pm.  Finally, Jonathan Sanks from Berkmar is a Georgia Southern signee and will play Pebblebrook at 5pm.


As deep as the number of seniors are in this Invitational, the talent of uncommitted players could be even more remarkable.  The St. Francis duo of Class of 2016 guard Kobi Simmons and Class of 2015 forward Kaiser Gates make Coach Cabral Huff’s team an early favorite to win the Class A championship.  Two 2016 point guards to watch are Aaron Augustin from Peachtree Ridge and Alterique Gilbert from Miller Grove.  Both are electric playmakers who will be on the radar of college coaches for years to come.  A must watch post player in the class of 2015 is Doral Moore from Luella High School.  At 7 feet tall he possesses good feet and hands, which has earned him interest from nearly every top 25 program in the nation.  The talent at the post position does not stop with Moore as 6-11 center Trey Kallina from North Cobb Christian and 6-9 post Joshua Coleman from St. Francis are two of more talented post players in the class 2015.  Finally, Chattahoochee’s Marcus Sheffield is a talented forward in the mold Jakeenan Gant who signed with Missouri this year.
