2015 Fall Preview Top Performers: Part 1

2015 Fall Preview

The Fall Preview was a loaded event with some of the top players from the state of Georgia and surrounding southern states. Our staff of evaluators went nearly 20 people deep. After compiling the evaluations from the coaches and HoopSeen staff, we have identified the 12 top performers and the four biggest story starters.

Here is part 1 of our top overall performers. 

 

Joshua Jackmon, PG, Miller Grove (GA), 2017: Jackmon had as good of a day as any other guard – and player – at the Fall Preview. In fact, I thought he was the most impressive guy I saw throughout the day. The 6-foot-1 point guard is a terror on defense. He has all the tools to be an elite defender at the next level. He isn't afraid to matchup with the opposing team’s top player. Jackmon’s competitive nature and gamer mentality sets him apart from the rest of his peers. On the offensive end, he used his brute strength to get to the rim and finish with contact. Jackmon will disrupt a lot of defenses this season as well, as he lives in the lane and dishes out damage. 

AJ Oliver, SG, DW Daniel (SC), 2017: What a difference a few months and a couple of inches make. Back in May, Oliver starred with the Upward Stars at Bob Gibbons. Fast-forward to October and he is now a legit 6-foot-4 prospect and a no-brainer high-major talent. He was one of the best shot-makers in attendance. Oliver has range on his jump shot, as he can fill things up from deep. He understands the game and does a great job of showing his basketball IQ. He uses it to get open and create shots for himself. The increase in height has also had a direct correlation with Oliver’s athleticism. He impressed several coaches and bystanders with his jumping and dunking ability. It's safe to say Oliver had a breakout day and emerged as one of the top 2017 prospects in the Southeast. (Oliver was co-MVP of the event.)

Darius Perry, PG, Wheeler (GA), 2017: Perry entered camp as one of the top players in attendance, and, as expected, he didn't disappoint. The 6-foot-2 guard is gifted physically with his quickness and agility. He changes gears well in transition and keeps defenders on their toes. Perry’s ball-handling continues to look crisp, as he has the ball on a string. As usual, he excelled at attacking the basket and knocking down mid-range jump shots. Expect a big junior season for Perry, who will be the top horse on a talented Wheeler (GA) squad. 

Kyle Sturdivant, PG, Norcross (GA), 2019: Despite only being a freshman, Sturdivant made a lot of noise Saturday. The 6-foot-1 guard plays like an upperclassmen at all times. He oozes confidence, as he can score at the rim or hit the pull-up jumper. He is composed at all times and plays on a constant cruise control. Sturdivant’s strength and physicality set him apart from other prospects his age. He still has a few years to pan out, but at this point, it looks like Sturdivant is going to be a high-major guy and one of Georgia's top 2019 point guards.
