Top 10 performers from The Preview: 2016/2017

Elite Preview Grid

Kevon Tucker, SG/SF, Dacula (Ga.) High School, Georgia Stars 15U, 2016

Tucker shot the ball well. That's becoming a theme with Tucker. The 6-foot-3 guard can pump in the points from the perimeter. He has a confident shot with good technique. Tucker was one of the top guys at the camp and played well from drills until the final game.

Kamar Baldwin, PG/SG, Apalachee (Ga.) High School, Atlanta Celtics 15U, 2016

There wasn't a better point guard in the camp than him. The funny thing about that is he says he's not a point guard and hasn't played the point before. That may need to change. Baldwin owned the position and just beat up the competition. He found shooters on the wing and made his big men effective low-post scorers. Defensively, Baldwin was a wizard in the open floor.

Chris Lewis, PF, Milton (Ga.) High School, Georgia Stars 15U, 2016

No one blocked shots, collected rebounds and immediately ran the floor better than he did. Lewis was on constant attack. We told the players coming into the event that things weren't going to be easy and they would be physically pushed. Lewis responded. He emptied the tank. He owned the stage and played as well as any big man in the camp.

Precious Ayah, C/PF, Decatur (Ga.) Greenforest Christian, Team Forest 15U, 2016

Just an animal on the glass. He was the best rebounder in the building. The 6-foot-8 big man made it his job to work the boards. No one wanted to battle him because of his physical intimidation. Ayah was a simpleton on offense, keeping things simple and direct from block to block. All of his scores came within two feet of the basket.

Keith "KJ" Gilmore, Jr., SF, Decatur (Ga.) SW Dekalb HS, GA Stars 15U, 2016

Hands down, he was the biggest surprise of the camp. The 6-foot-4 wing forward was as versatile of a player we had in camp. His comfort zone was on the wing and going in attack mode. Gilmore is athletic enough to rebound with the bigs and explosive enough to power drive past wing defenders. He shined in every aspect expect top-level speed. Loved everything about him.

Elias Harden, SG, Atlanta (Ga.) Fulton Leadership Academy, Atlanta XPress 14U, 2017

A poised guard who can play either of the positions. He has good court vision and is smart at making decisions. Harden has a nice feel for the game at a young age. He also has a solid mid-range game. This is a name you will remember as the wiry 6-foot-4 guard matures physically.

Luis Hurtado, PG/SG/SF, Greenforest Christian (Ga.), Team Forest 15U, 2017

Meet Georgia's newest and most intriguing versatile wing. The native of Venezuela played the point and played it well. He's a crafty scorer with good size (6-foot-4). Hurtado was at his best when attacking the basket. There were enough wow moments to keep you intrigued for this upcoming season.

D'Marcus Simonds, SG/SF, Buford (Ga.) High School, Heat Check 15U, 2016

Simonds shot the ball well. He was the most athletic player in the camp, too. The 6-foot-3 guard knows how to score. He was one of the best overall scorer at the camp and should be one of the top scorers in the state this season. We matched Simonds up with the top wings in the camp and he won every match-up. That was impressive. He rose to the moment and competed.

Madison Williams, SG, Augusta (Ga.) Christian, Team Power 15U, 2016

The 6-foot-2 wing shot the ball very well. So good, in fact, we dubbed him as our top shooter in the camp. He's a long scorer that can attack off the dribble. Williams was good in the midrange and solid from three. He's a point producer and a good one at that. One of the better sleepers in Georgia's 2016 class.

Victor Enoh, C, Decatur (Ga.) Greenforest Christian, Atlanta Rockafella 14U, 2017

Don't be surprised if he's the best overall big man in the state by January 2014. Seriously. Enoh is a flat out problem in the middle. Enoh is a man against boys at the 2017 level. Physically, he muscled up on the competition.
