It is always exciting to see a player make a significant jump in his development as a player over the course of the off-season. Going into his Senior year, Kam has done exactly that and Colleges are starting to take notice. After strong showings in June with his Hillgrove High team and an excellent July during the travel ball live period in July, He has continued to carry that momentum into the Fall. On Saturday, he played with a noticeable confidence, scoring the ball at a high rate and in an efficient manner. He shot the three ball at a high percentage both off the catch and off the dribble. His quickness and increased strength from time in the weight room was on display, as he continuously was able to drive into the paint and finish at the rim, or create for open teammates. Defensively, he puts good pressure on the ball and has good awareness. A high character and hard working prospect with a 3.9 GPA in classroom. Look for him to be one of Georgia's biggest "breakout" players in the '23 class this coming season.
Strong Athletic Guard who is really good at attacking the basket and scoring at the rim. Whether in the halfcourt set or in transition, Jeremiah's quickness was a handful for opposing defenders to deal with. He displayed a good float game and mid-range pull-up. While very aggressive as a scorer, he plays at a good pace and doesn't force the action. Sees the floor well and delivered several nice assists to cutting teammates. Defensively, he is a true asset, as both a team defender and disrupting opposing ball handlers with his physical prowess. Leader and go-to guy for a talented South Paulding squad that should make noise this year. All-State candidate in Georgia's Class AAAAAA.
Good looking prospect out of Columbus area who scored the ball at a high rate throughout the day. Among the camp's top scorers, he is a long and wiry 6' 3 guard who creates his shot really well. In 5 on 5 play, KeAndre came out the gate on fire; knocking down a variety of contested pull-up jumpers and deep treys. With the defense eventually focused on taking away his outside shot, he did equal damage putting the ball on the floor and scoring in the paint on both sides of the rim. Looked good pushing the ball in transition. Look for him to have a huge Senior season for St. Anne Pacelli. He is prospect College Coaches do not want to sleep on.
High ceiling and high academic prospect with really nice upside that caught the attention of numerous College coaches and scouts in attendance. Showed a good versatility to his game, with a combination of inside scoring on the block, outside shooting, and all-around basketball IQ. He moves well without the ball and works well within the flow of the offense, which is no surprise coming out of a very well coached Walton program. Equally impressive was his versatility on defense. At 6' 8, He showed the ability to guard wings on the perimeter, but a willingness to bang down low as a post. He blocked several shots and altered several others as a rim protector. With a 4.3 and 1390 SAT; he is prospect that Academic Elite programs should definitely take a strong look at.
Emerging prospect standing a legit 6' 8 with a sturdy frame; Alex had an impressive showing throughout the camp. He shined on the defensive end, where he was a continuous presence as a shot blocker. He swatted away numerous attempts in the paint. He is a physical and aggressive rebounder and did a great job snatching boards and quickly initiating the break with outlet pass. Offensively, he played to his strengths and was assertive in wanting the ball on the lower block, where he showed solid footwork and hands. He didn't shy away from contact, which is always nice to see in a young big man. He had several powerful dunks in traffic. While he is still obviously developing; Alex has some serious upside and the potential to be a high impact player at the College level. We expect him to become a priority target for numerous College programs in the coming weeks and into the winter season for an always talented Walnut Grove.
