Elite Preview Team 8 Evals

JY directs traffic at 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 8.

DJ BRITTAN, PG, GRADY, 2018: A super tough guard who can play either spot in the backcourt on the defensive end of the floor, there is alot to like about Brittan as a lockdown defender. His shot selection and distributing skills remain a work in progress but his willingness to step up and harass his opposing counterparts on defense is astounding. Already sporting a strong, compact physique, Brittan moves his feet and forces the turnover without giving the foul. As his offensive production improves, so should his stock as a two-way guard in the coming years. - Corey Evans
GARRISON BROOKS, PF, AUBURN, 2017: The Alabama big man came to Georgia and was one of the best overall post presences at the camp. Our National Recruiting Analyst Corey Evans called Brooks one of the top 10 players at the camp. Read more about that HERE.
GRANT HOWARD, CG, ALEXANDER, 2018: There is value for guards that rebound and Howard will rebound. The 6-foot-3 backcourt player has the size and strength to be a problem inside the paint as a defender and a value producer outside of scoring. He can score, no doubt, but his toughness inside the paint shined through in this setting. - Justin Young
ALEX JONES, PG, BUFORD, 2018: It’s rare to see a young high school point guard with the type mental grasp on the game that Jones has. The Buford point guard plays that game with an extremely high IQ and is ahead of most young guards in that facet of the game. Though he’s not the biggest nor the fastest guard, he knows what it takes for him to be effective, and he plays the position with craftiness and intelligence. - Carter Wilson
KJ LEE, SG, WHEELER, 2018: Lee has gotten much tougher since our last viewing of him at the Fall Preview and it was his willingness to take the bump on the attack to the basket and then finish thereafter that impressed the HoopSeen team. Lee is still best served in catch and shoot situations but with the ability to the put the ball on the floor and score from various levels, it gives plenty of reason for optimism with the 2018 Wheeler guard. - Corey Evans
SHEMARIE MCLEOD, SG, SHILOH, 2018: The long and lanky 6-foot-5 wing has the tools to become a versatile and active prospect on the perimeter. McLeod has the handle and length to attack the rim with ease. On the flip side, his length should allow him to be a good to great defender on the wing. - Justin Young
KHAVON MOORE, SF, WESTSIDE, 2018: Is there a better long-term prospect in the entire state of Georgia? That is a difficult statement to make in keeping in mind how talented the Peach State is but if one guy can claim it, it would have be Khavon Moore. The 6-foot-8 point-wing type is best served with the ball in his hands where he excelled in getting to the basket off of his off-hand and creating for his teammates on the drive and kick dish. He has yet to show off a polished jumper but with a super light frame and a guy that can already guard multiple spots, the sky's the ceiling for Moore. - Corey Evans
AMANZE NGUZEMI, PF, SOL C JOHNSON, 2018: The Savannah big man is an intriguing guy to keep an eye on this travel season. He’s one of the bigger players in the state in his class and knows it. The 6-foot-8 big man has good hands and reliable footwork in the post. As the 2018 class continues to play out this travel season, we will be watching Nguzemi closely this spring and summer. The tools are certainly there. - Justin Young
KELVIN SIMIEN, C, WESTLAKE, 2018:There weren’t many more prospects that walked into the gym on Saturday with a bigger frame that should entice plenty of college coaches in the coming years than Kelvin Simien. While his numbers on the stat sheet can come and go, whenever Simien is engaged, the Westlake prospect is quite the presence. He sets the tone within the interior and has decent hands on the glass. He isn’t afraid of physicality and as he rounds out his game, his ability to impact the game in any given affair should hit the next level. - Corey Evans
RHEAQUONE TAYLOR, BARRINGER (NC), 2017: One of the more intriguing guys in camp, the 6-foot-7 forward came to the Elite Preview with a lot to prove. Athletically, he’s very good and incredibly intriguing. There was a lot of similarity to Mike Sagay, who came to camp last year as as a surprise prospect and ended up signing with Boston College. Taylor is long, versatile and full of intrigue. This was a nice stage to start our familiarity with him. He’s a guy to watch this EYBL season with the Southern Stampede. - Justin Young
