Elite Preview Team 5 Evals

The Georgia Elite Preview was jam-packed with talent and our staff looks back on each player at the invite-only camp. Here are the player breakdowns from Team 5.

PHIL CIRRILO, SG, CHEROKEE, 2017: Cirrilo is a good looking off guard with a strong frame already in play. He enjoys playing off the ball as he can hit off of the catch with them best of them. Range and a hand in his face isn’t much of an issue for the 6-foot-4 guard. Confidence isn’t lacking either and while he does have to solidify his handles in facilitating his team’s half-court offense, the high-IQ junior is one of the better outside shooters in all of the state and should be valued as such. - Corey Evans
EVAN COLE, PF, SOUTH FORSYTH, 2017: Another one of the breakout players from the Elite Preview, Cole is a big, strong forward with a solid skillset and athleticism. Cole held his own among the state’s best big men and was able to make some very eye opening plays, including a game winning tip slam in the first session of games. The ceiling is extremely high on him and he could become one of the more closely watched forwards in the junior class. This will be a name that you hear a lot more of as the spring goes on. - Carter Wilson
TYSHAUN CRAWFORD, C, GRIFFIN, 2017: The Griffin big man continues to make strides in his game. First off you can’t teach size, and Crawford has plenty of that, standing 7 feet tall with a lot of length. His lateral movement has improved and he is beginning to grasp the mental part of the game as well. He is still raw offensively, but shows signs of good footwork, which could be the framework for a post game that could develop over time. - Carter Wilson
JUSTIN FORREST, PG, GREENFOREST, 2017: Forrest had a breakout year with Greenforest, who finished as one of the top teams in the nation. He was arguably the best scorer for the Eagles, and really excelled as a lead guard. He continued to show his development at the Elite Preview, scoring both around the rim and from three. He also has point guard skills that continue to improve and his IQ is coming along with it. When that fully comes around, he could be a very special player. - Carter Wilson
TAE HARDY, SF, MILLER GROVE, 2017: Hardy might have gotten lost in the shuffle this season with Miller Grove, as they had loads of guards that were big time contributors. Hardy showed that he can be leaned on next year for the Wolverines as a scorer. He is very smooth with the dribble and knows how to put the ball in the basket. He has craftiness and savvy about him that allows him to get by defenders and get into the paint, where he can finish at the rim. What he does better than most guards is getting to the line, where he scores a lot of points as well. - Carter Wilson
JACQUAVIUS HAYES, F, JACKSON, 2018: The 6-foot-7 forward was very good on both ends of the floor and played hard as a rebounder and defender. His offense will need improvement moving forward but his length, natural athleticism and motor can keep him on the court at this stage. - Justin Young
ISAIAH KELLY, SF, PACE ACADEMY, 2018: The long-time Elite Preview camper was one of the best players at the camp, according to our National Basketball Recruiting Analyst Corey Evans top 10. Read his report on Kelly HERE.
RE’OKUS WRIGHT, MAYS, 2017: One key for point guards is getting the ball where it needs to go when it needs to get there. Wright did just that at the Elite Preview, showing that he can coexist with many different types of guards and make the right plays when they are called for, which is great to have if you’re a coach. - Carter Wilson
