Super 64 Eye-Catchers – Part 2

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – Two weeks following a massive turnout of top young talent for OTR’s Breakout Camp, the upperclassmen (and a few top youngsters) took the court of Central Gwinnett HS for Super 64.

A ton of really good players were on hand, many have been covered by our evaluators already, here were eye-catchers from my seat, part 1.

Laz Mason II | G | 2024 | Grayson (pictured at top)

Has been seriously busy traversing multiple camps around the region and the work is definitely showing, a boost in confidence is evident for one after some really strong late summer performances as well with GA Canes, quicker and stronger off the bounce he’s not bruising his way to the cup which for a guy his size can take a toll instead he has been and was at Super 64 very effective from 18 to 8 feet, has always had strong PG instincts but will be effective for the Rams this winter off the ball.

Derwin Hodge | G | 2025 | Peachtree Ridge

As a guy who harkens back to the old days when shot-blockers were truly celebrated Hodge becomes a treat to watch in that category alone, such good timing and such explosive left for guy 6-9 and long, inklings of his offensive capacity beyond the paint always showed their face in small doses but now entering his junior campaign the jumper particularly from deep range appears a consistently dangerous weapon, that’s bad news for Lions opponents but great news for his overall recruiting profile.

DJ Ituome | G | 2025 | Greenforest

Fascinating possibilities here as he heads to Greenforest to set up another huge frontline for the Eagles, in that rotation with Daniel Daramola and Caleb Kawela that may not perfectly resemble the two departed 7-footers but the physicality and movement in this group will be all kinds of problems, love the frame at around 6-8 and the natural athleticism and there’s visible offensive capabilities which could really blossom with reps and top competition, wouldn’t shock me if he came out this season as a fast riser in the 2025 class.

DJ Davenport-Cox | G | 2025 | Mays

Has made a lot of strides in his offensive game as he’s always featured a humble and calm assassin-type demeanor as a scorer but now a little bigger and stronger he’s used all that drilling he’s done with travel team Tier2 Elite and others to hone a pretty tough package to deal with, crafty around the rim and proficient in the mid-range I think Mays will be an interesting fit for him after seeing their current group at the North Atlanta Fall League a day before Super 64.

Will Smith | G | 2025 | Harrison

Followed up an eye-opening spring and summer with Team Forrest with another bouncy performance at Super 64, energy guys are always valuable but Smith pairs boundless fuel with a really interesting skillset that ranges from lead ballhandler to smart distributor to exciting finisher, can defend multiple spots at 6-3 because of that leaping ability and lateral movement, the Hoyas often get overlooked when talking about the prominent programs in the ATL-Metro but Smith will be worth a trip over to Kennesaw.
