Ware has a really good frame. He’s got some nice strength and a projectable body with wide shoulders. He plays a lot on the perimeter instead of using his physical gifts around the rim. He handles the ball well and is a nimble athlete. Tayden has long strides when getting downhill. Ware has too many tools to not develop into a fine tweener prospect.
Long and lean,plays closer to the basket than Ware does. He can alter shots inside and is a reliable rebounder. The double-double threat has a pretty stroke and will knock down free throws when fouled.
Gailey caught fire with three straight threes to bury Lakeview Academy in the opening round. He’s got a bit of a nonchalant demeanor on the floor, but he does a good job of creating separation on quick step-backs to free himself beyond the arc.
The sophomore is a really nice athlete. He’s skilled getting to the rim, able to finish with floaters. Kersh has emerged as a consistent rebounder, using his springy quickness to attack rebounds at their highest point. Boston is a three-level scoring threat.
Marlow’s strength and athleticism make him tough to stop, especially in transition. He uses a burst of speed to get downhill as he cuts through the defense. Carlos finishes through contact and can be a stingy on-ball defender.
Underwood made a difference in Cherokee Bluff’s double overtime win over Chestatee by spacing the floor with his three-point shot. Underwood has deep range and helped stretch the floor for others to attack the hoop. He didn’t shy away from any big shots.
Anytime Chestatee needed a bucket, Jarvis delivered. The two-way standout fouled out late, but was paramount in keeping Chestatee in the game throughout. Jarvis found ways to score around the rim and provided just enough outside shooting to balance his attack. His playmaking as a passer makes him a dynamic dribble drive swingman.
As the game wore on, Wilbanks got stronger. His non-stop motor and nose for the ball forced double overtime as he swooped in from the top of the key for a tip-in with a second to play. Colton is one of the best offensive rebounders in the state with how he crashes the glass from all angles. The bouncy forward must be accounted for at all times. Defensively, he excels at jumping passing lanes and finishing with slams.
