Zion Williams – 5’8 – PG – South Georgia Kings

The young guard scored the ball in bunches. Knocked down the long ball every game while putting pressure on bigs when he got in the painted area. The 15 year old played up to 16U and gave Charlotte Aces 38 points

Noah Burroughs – 5’10 – Guard – Alabama Basketball Academy

The ABA PG shot the ball at a high level all weekend. He made (10) 3 pointers in the first 2 games for his club. The 2017 G played up in 16U and held his own on both ends of the floor. He must pick up weight and become a better facilitator in the future but has time to do so.

Noah Brown – 6’7 – Forward – SE Elite Florida Black

Brown is a skilled wing. He can play either forward position but is more of a natural wing forward. He is a solid shooter to 19 feet. He has a solid face up game but is more of a jump shooter than a slasher.

Evan Cole – 6’7 – Forward – North Georgia Elite

Cole was impressive playing against some of the most dominate post players who were in attendance over the weekend. The 6-foot-7 forward showed the ability to rebound well inside and outside of his area.

Kymoni Dunham – 6’8 – Forward – South Georgia Kings

This 6-foot-8 post knows how to carve out space in the post for rebounding as opposed to trying to out-jump opponents. He does a good job of using his body to establish prime position in the paint for scoring. Once he gets the ball, he uses his thick body and good length to score in the paint. Dunham has good footwork in the post and effectively utilizes the jump-hook with his right hand.

Ardarryl Clay – 6’ – Guard – Chattanooga Elite

Clay was one of the smoothest players that we saw over the weekend. He has the ideal frame for a combo guard and his game exemplifies it as well. He has long arms, good length, and is a deceptively explosive athlete. He has a good pull-up jumper off the bounce as well.

Silas Adheke – 6’8 – Forward – Team Georgia

Adheke has the talent to hurt opposing defenses in many ways. He can a silky smooth release and good range on his jump shot. He also has very good touch around the basket and can score in the post and has a makeable turnaround jump shot from the mid-post area.

Mitch Langley – 6’3 – Guard – Alabama Premier Silver

One of the better shooters that we saw over the weekend, Langley showed the ability to shoot off the catch and dribble.

Javon Greene – 6’3 – Guard – 94 Feet

Greene has good size for a young perimeter guard, he showed the ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the rim. He is strong enough to post-up and convert against smaller guards. Greene showed to be the leader on a loaded 94 Feet team.

DeMarcus Williams – 6’1 – Guard – South Fulton Lions

One of the many talented eight grades in attendance, Williams stood out for the South Fulton Lions as he scored back to back baskets in the first half of a close game. Williams is an attacking wing that can get to the rim and score on a consistent basis. He has good size, length and is athletic.
