Atlanta, Ga.- The Peach State Classic held at Westlake High School showcased some of the top programs in the state of Georgia. Our team takes a look at some of the players that stood out Saturday night.

Auburn signee Bryce Brown heats up in the second half

Bryce Brown has a reputation as one of the deadliest shooters in the state of Georgia.  At half time, Brown had only four points and Tucker was down to Mays High School by eight points. In the third quarter, Brown caught fire as he consecutively hit (3) three pointers helping his team regain the lead. In the fourth quarter, the remarkable shooting display did not stop as Brown knocked down another three pointer to open the quarter.  Rather he was shooting from behind the arc or attacking the basket, this 6-foot-2 guard was unstoppable as he scored 18 points in the second half finishing with a game-high 22 points.

Looking for a point guard? Westlake’s Jarred Heard is one of the best around

Jarred Heard had a good showing this spring and summer on the Nike EYBL circuit. Saturday night Heard showed why he is one of the top available guards in the state. Heard is a smooth point that can create for himself as well as others. He showed that he is capable of penetrating the lane reading the defense and making the best decision rather it’s finishing or finding an open teammate. He has solid and developing mid-range game and has range on his jump shot out to 20 feet.

Sleeper Alert

Junior guard Rodney Chatman of Lithonia High School was unguardable down the stretch Saturday afternoon against Heritage. Chatman is a crafty guard that penetrated the defense finishing strong at the rim or stopping for the mid-range pull up jumper.  Chatman will be a player for mid major programs to keep an eye on this summer.  Heritage junior forward Makyle Wilkerson is an intriguing prospect. Standing at 6-foot-6 , Wilkerson was effective knocking down the jumper from the high post or short corner.
