The Elite Preview 2020-2021 camp was loaded with the next wave of talent in the Southeast. We begin our team-by-team player evaluations from the Oct. 15 camp.
Dylan Cardwell, Evans (GA), 2020: One of the nice revelations of the camp, the 6-foot-8 big man showed off a nice, skilled game that included jumpers and post moves. He is a great post passer and has a nice feel for a big man. Consistency is the next area of improvement but overall, he could be one of the better big men in Georgia’s 2020 class moving forward. - Justin Young
Tyler Johnson, Cedar Shoals (GA), 2020: Simply put - he makes plays. Johnson was at his best when he was attacking and getting to the rim. Working on a constant running motor will help grow his production on both ends of the floor. - Justin Young
Eli’Sha King, Tri-Cities (GA), 2021: King can really get to the rim and rebounds well for his position. Like most young players, he will need to improve shooting to help grow his overall offensive game. - Justin Young
Ja’Queze Kirby, Jeff Davis (GA), 2020: Easily one of the top three players in the camp and a consensus Top 10 overall performer from the event. Click HERE to read more about Kirby’s outstanding day. - Justin Young
Garrison Powell, Holy Innocents (GA), 2021: It is hard to not like a player that brings a high intensity level. Powell wanted to shine on defense and he did with a non-stop motor. Offensively, he’ll need to improve his shot but with a mindset like his, that improvement should come with time and work. - Justin Young
Christian Williams, Peachtree Ridge (GA), 2020: The active and athletic lefty earned high praise with his play at the camp. He shined as a shooter and did a fine job of scoring. He was consistently active and one of the nice surprises of the day. Williams made a good impression. - Justin Young
Bryson Wooten, Jones County (GA), 2020: The 6-foot-3 guard took advantage of the stage on Sunday. He was a good leader with word and action. He proved that he can get to the rim with ease and scored in a variety of ways. Further improvement with his jump shot will help push his game further. He was good at getting back on defense and being engaged. As he develops his jumper, Wooten could become one of the better players in Middle Georgia’s underclassmen talent pool. - Justin Young
