Jaden Clark Jaden Clark 6'5" | SG Nolensville | 2024 State TN (Nolensville) scored 22 points with six rebounds in a win over Summertown.
Joshua Heard Joshua Heard 6'6" | SF Cookeville | 2024 State TN (Cookeville) surpassed 1000 career points. He showed rather well at the Beech Christmas Classic by scoring, rebounding, and defending. Ideally, Heard would play as a lead guard. He is so silky smooth and elegant with the dribble. Alas, the team is almost entirely built if guards, so Heard will get stuffed under the rim at times.
