Elite Preview Team 6 Evals

Elite Preview

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 6.

NATE BROOKS, PF, STRATFORD ACADEMY, 2017: To put it frankly, Brooks looks like a grown man. He is an intimidating, physical presence on the block and is a big time athlete. Offensively, Brooks is at his best around the rim, where he dunks everything and can finish with a ton of athleticism. He is also a great rebounder on both ends. As he develops, he could be a very fun player to watch. - Carter Wilson
CHRISTIAN BROWN, SF/PF, AC FLORA, 2019: The active 6-foot-6 forward was one of the top 10 players at the camp, according to our national recruiting analyst Corey Evans. Read more about Brown's performance HERE.
DERRICK COOK, CG, LANGSTON HUGHES, 2017: Cook showed a little versatility in his game at the Elite Preview. A big 6-foot-4 combo guard, most of Cook’s production usually comes from attacking the rim. While he did still show that in camp, he also stepped out and shot the ball well from deep. If he can add that consistent perimeter shot to his game, he has the makings of a player that could become very popular in the spring. - Carter Wilson
KHALIL CUFFEE, SG, LANGSTON HUGHES, 2017: Cuffee continues to do more of what we have become accustomed to seeing him do: play hard and knock down shots. There is a ton of value in players that can connect from deep and make shots, and Cuffee is one of the players that will have a lot of value because of that fact. - Carter Wilson
CLARENCE JACKSON, WF, WILKINSON COUNTY, 2018: Fresh off of a state title with WilCo, Jackson came into camp with a lot of confidence. He showed the ability to do a little bit of everything: he shot the ball, handled it, defended with intensity, and rebounded. With a little bit of seasoning and understanding, this sophomore could become a player to watch in Georgia’s 2018 class. - Carter Wilson
DANNY LEWIS, SG, WESTLAKE, 2017: The state champ shot the ball very well at the Elite Preview, well enough that our national recruiting analyst Corey Evans called the rising senior one of the top 10 players at camp. More on that HERE.
IKEY OBIAGU, C, GREENFOREST, 2017: Is there a better shot blocker in all of America? I think not. Obiagu’s instincts, length, and quick leaping skills are all elite and his ability to impact the game and produce a double double without having a single play called for him is as good as it gets. He still remains a bit of a project on the offensive end of the floor where he lacks a ton of confidence at this time but it could all come overnight for the DeAndre Jordan-type, thus the reasoning for why he is perceived as a top-15 recruit nationally. - Corey Evans
JOJO THOMAS, G, THOMASVILLE, 2019: The young guard jumped into the elite camp setting. He was competitive in the drills and found ways to be effective in the team setting throughout the event. - Justin Young
JORDAN USHER, SF, SEQUOYAH, 2017: A solid play maker with the ball in his hands, Usher has deceptive athleticism to him at the basket and a strong frame that he uses well on the hard attack to the basket. A versatile wing who has an evolving set of ball skills, Usher isn’t quite there yet as he had an up and down weekend, though it was his play in the final stanza of the day on Saturday that displayed immense value and production out of the Sequoyah wing who can play various spots on the hardwood. - Corey Evans
HORACE WYATT, SF, MAYS, 2018: Arguably the biggest surprise in camp, the athletic 6-foot-6 forward played his way into the conversation at the Elite Preview. Corey Evans has more on Wyatt's performance HERE.
