Sweet Sixteen Session 2 – Saturday Impression-Makers Pt 2

MARIETTA, GA – Moved to Kell HS for Day 2 of OTR’s Sweet Sixteen Session 2, as three courts of 17U action went all day.

Some guys who made Impressions, part 2:

By:  Keith Agran

Alex Collier | F | 2024 | Above Academy

Playing alongside 6-9 Jack Sullivan he was quite the beast even being slightly undersized for the 5, Sullivan plays an effective stretch 4 with his shooting and passing so Collier spends his time working the block and is a tough finisher who’s at his most comfortable it appears working hard in close.

CJ King | G | 2024 | Team Knight

One of the better all-around PG’s I myself got to see over three different venues, explosive athlete up and down the court but a keen eye for the right feed and plenty of athletic finishing on the drive, lockdown defender.

Mathieu Nader | G | 2024 | Rocket City Suns (pictured at top)

Like King above had a blast watching Nader and he’s far too good a point guard prospect to still be available, like I said with the Jalen Rose comparisons he plays just like him and was a first-team All-Weekend guy to me as he dished, scored and maneuvered the defense like a college guy, this Rocket City program out of Huntsville, AL is very interesting and plays a solid brand of ball.

Caden Goins | G | 2024 | Charge Academy

Much like what I saw when I visited their workout Goins was exceptionally athletic in a world with a lot of good athletes running around out there, mix in that with sound basketball instincts and an ability to score from a variety of spots and with his size it’s super intriguing stuff as he gets set for a full season at Central Gwinnett.

Agbo Ogbonna | G | 2023 | FastBreak

Was a handful as a slightly undersized but powerful and agile post, don’t get preoccupied with the fact that he’s not 6-9 as he can finish hard an fast or get off the deck and show off next-level athleticism, another surprising available senior as well as he can put it in the hole and rebound.

Arnett Hayes Jr | G | 2025 | Team Scoot

Have seen this 2025 Scoot group a bunch and love what they are now and what they can become as pre-seniors next Spring, Hayes wasn’t with them earlier in March when I was introduced to these guys but he adds a dimension of speed that takes them to another level, great burst with and without the ball and doesn’t miss a ton of chances as a scoring guard at the basket.
