Elite Preview Camp Top Performers Part I
The Elite Preview camp was deep with talent. This camp gave us the opportunity to check out some of the top 2024 and 2025 players in the Southeast. From the drills to the scrimmages, every player gave 100% of energy and nonstop competition start to finish. With the coach's evaluations and some input from the media team, we provided the first wave of our top performers from the camp.
During the AAU season, I got to be pretty well acquainted with Almonte’s game. I saw him win a lot on our platform, and he was a staple of our coverage during the Georgia Cup series. What I loved out of his game then carried over to Sunday, when he impressed everyone in the gym. What stood out the most about him on Sunday was his motor. His energy is ever flowing and contagious. At around 6-foot-5, he wasn’t the biggest forward, but he played like it. He’s a guy who you can throw the ball to in the post when you need a bucket, he’ll fight for rebounds, and he’s a quality defender down low. Almonte is a player who finds himself on lists like this more often than not for good reason. - Josh Tec
Harris is a versatile guard, wing prospect who does a lot of things well, and he showed off his skillset on Sunday. He’s a high-level scorer who can hurt you from all over the floor, but he’s especially deadly in the mid-range. He handles the ball well and can serve as a primary creator. Harris also shines on defense, where he can be a lockdown guy when guarding 1-4. He’s one of the best of the best in Georgia's 2024 class, and he showed us why at the Elite Preview on Sunday. - Josh Tec
I heard a ton of murmurs about this kid through the first game slot. Once I saw him during the second game, it was easy to see why. Jennings is one of those players that plays his game. He does not try to do too much, he is as unselfish as they come, and he makes the right plays. He made a ton of passes in transition that were really impressive. On the offensive end, he can knock down threes at a high percentage and get into the lane with ease. He should be a big contributor to Greenbrier this season. - Brianna Patton
As soon as he walked into the gym, a lot of eyes immediately went on him. Standing tall at 6-foot-9, Jobe is a high-major prospect, already holding offers from Auburn, Florida, and Indiana. His mobility for his size allows him to step out and extend the floor on offense and defend out on the perimeter. He has such potential to his game; only a sophomore, his skill on the low block will continue to improve. - Brianna Patton
Johnson was a consensus top overall player amongst the camp coaches. This kid played absolutely fearlessly. He knocked down big shot after big shot, including a GW off balance 3-pointer as time expired. With an exceptional handle, he was able to orchestrate the offense, both getting to his spots and getting his teammates involved. As one of the most vocal players on the floor throughout the entire day, it was evident that he has the qualities of an on-court leader. - Brianna Patton
Wilson is one of the most interesting players I’ve seen over the last few months. It’s difficult to watch the 6-foot-7 wing prospect and not be tantalized by his upside and potential. Although he’s young, he already checks a lot of boxes. Size and length are some of his natural gifts. He’s mobile for a bigger guy, so he can play multiple positions. Inside the perimeter, his size and motor make him more than a handful for opponents to deal with. He’s great around the rim on both ends of the floor, and he gobbles up rebounds. Around the perimeter, he’s a disruptive defender, he can be trusted to sink some 3-pointers, and he can create off the dribble. He has tools in his bag, it’s now just a matter of sharpening them. I can’t wait to see what the rest of his high school career looks like. - Josh Tec
