Coach: Chris Goodman
#2: 5’10 ’23 Justin Monden (Word of God)
Starting things off, we look at a player who offers a very steady, reliable two-way presence, regardless of setting, Justin Monden. He’s a smart, unselfish, well-rounded point guard prospect with excellent balance between playmaking and three-level scoring. Monden displays pace, patience, and great vision when initiating or looking to create off the bounce. He’s a lethal midrange shooter who can finish with craftiness or consistently hit jumpers from beyond the arc. Monden is also a scrappy defender who rebounds the ball well for his size/position. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would only help prepare him for the increased physicality at the next level. Coach Goodman on Monden: “Justin is a high-IQ point guard. Willing passer and defender. Shoots well off the catch and bounce. Needs to get a little stronger to not get bumped off his spot. Must become a vocal leader on the floor and control the game when there is chaos. Justin can work on taking over when his team is about to self-destruct.” Monden did a lot of things well at camp, and should be a target for various programs during his upcoming senior season at Word of God.
#15: 6’1 ’25 Jacari Brim (West Forsyth)
Next, we look at a player who continues to showcase steady progression with each new viewing, Jacari Brim. He’s a crafty, fairly well-rounded guard prospect with useful creation skills, ball-handling ability, and solid balance as an offensive piece. Brim is a capable scorer from all levels, and can initiate the action if needed. He contains his assignment well defensively and rebounds the ball effectively for his size. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more scoring opportunities alongside another lead creator. Coach Goodman on Brim: “Jacari is a solid defender that wants the tough guard matchup. Displayed a nice midrange jumper and the ability to knock down the open spot-up shot. He’s a willing defender that communicates very well on the court.” Brim enjoyed a nice showing during his time at camp, and should be poised for a highly productive sophomore season at West Forsyth.
#31: 6’3 ’25 Bryce Baker (Walkertown)
Moving onto a player who continues to stand out as one of the top multisport athletes in the state, Bryce Baker. He’s a smart, active, well-rounded guard prospect with a great combination of size, skill, and athleticism. Baker handles the ball, creates well for himself and others, and knows how to make an impact as a cutter or off-ball threat. He’s a useful passer who looks to make the extra pass or unselfish decision whenever possible. Baker utilizes his length, motor, and toughness to make his presence felt defensively. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher around the basket. Coach Goodman on Baker: “Bryce is an above-average scorer on the floor. Strong, physical guard that dictates the flow of the game. Score-first guard but possesses ability to make the right pass. Willing defender but needs to get in better shape to become elite on that end of the floor.” Baker proved to be an asset at camp, and should be extremely productive over the foreseeable future as the clear leader of Walkertown.
#34: 6’3 ’24 Jahon Foster (Forsyth Country Day)
Continuing onto a player who understands how to effectively fill in the gaps as an offensive option, Jahon Foster. He’s a scrappy, wiry guard prospect with a great midrange pull-up and the ability to penetrate or hit shots from beyond the arc. Foster handles and passes the ball well, but can also spot-up or find chances as a cutter. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more scoring opportunities alongside another lead creator. Coach Goodman on Foster: “Jahon is a solid scorer that gets to his spots for his shot. Displayed the ability to score at all three levels. Looks to score first. Can work on his ability to read the defense. Needs to improve his strength and on-ball defense. There were times when opponents were able to straight-line drive to the basket.” Foster highlighted some positive flashes at camp, and should be a strong contributor during the upcoming season at Forsyth Country Day.
#35: 6’3 ’24 Jermaurhiyun Anderson (Quality Education)
Next, we look at a player who arguably stood out as the main glue-guy of this team, Jermaurhiyun Anderson. He’s a smart, tough, high-motor guard with an unselfish mentality and the ability to succeed from either backcourt position. Anderson can reliably dictate the action and set up others while actively getting downhill and applying pressure as a finisher. He’s a quality penetrator, capable perimeter shooter, and great overall defender who naturally outworks his assignment on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working to become a better three-point shooter, as it would make him even more difficult for opponents to contain. Coach Goodman on Anderson: “Jermaurhiyun is a hybrid guard who can play with or without the ball. Able to find the open spot on the floor and receive the ball. Quick first step that gets him paint-touches and allows him to finish at the rim. Good defender, both on and off the ball. Communicates well on both ends of the floor.” Anderson made a lasting impression at camp, and should be a major contributor over the next two seasons at Quality Education.
#47: 6’5 ’23 Jamari Briggs (Christ School)
Moving onto a player who has arguably showcased as much progression as any camper on display, Jamari Briggs. He’s a strong, physical, athletic wing prospect with great penetration instincts and the ability to consistently get downhill and finish. Briggs displayed IQ and toughness on both ends of the floor. He rebounds the ball well for his position and understands how to push the break in transition. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would open him up to even more scoring chances. Coach Goodman on Briggs: “Jamari is able to attack the basket and finish through contact or over taller defenders. He has a great release on catch-and-shoot jumpers. Does a great job of relocating to the corner. Needs to work on being in the correct position defensively and staying disciplined on moves from opposing ball-handlers. Jamari can also continue getting in better shape.” Briggs did a lot of things well during camp, and should be a definite difference-maker this season for Christ School.
#50: 6’5 ’25 Tre McKinnon (Lake Norman)
Continuing onto a player who continues to make steady strides on both ends of the floor, Tre McKinnon. He’s a long, athletic wing/forward prospect with the ability to finish, hit jumpers, and rebound on either side of the ball. McKinnon blocks shots at a solid rate and capitalizes on offensive chances in transition. Next in his development process is working on his ability to handle the ball, as it’ll make him a more complete player. Coach Goodman on McKinnon: “Tre is possibly the most athletic player in the camp. Vertical and lateral athleticism. Long wingspan allows him to be a solid team defender and play passing lanes effectively. Gets out and runs the floor and is very dangerous in transition. Needs to get stronger when attacking the basket. Has solid shooting ability and knocked down jumpers at an efficient clip on the day. Needs more effort to stay in front of his man defensively, but has the ability to chase down shots at the rim. Tre can continue to get in shape and work on staying focused throughout the game.” McKinnon made a quality impact at camp, and should be a major contributor for Lake Norman during the upcoming season.
#63: 6’8 ’24 Richard Goods (Piedmont Classical)
Next, we look at a player who possesses a ton of enticing tools and physical traits, Richard Goods. He’s a long, mobile, athletic post prospect with toughness and the ability to physically overwhelm opponents on both ends of the floor. Goods moves well for his size, finishes above the rim, and blocks shots at a consistent rate. He’s a useful rebounder who can capitalize effectively in transition. Next in his development process is working on playing more around the basket as opposed to shooting perimeter jumpers, as it’ll only make him more effective as a scorer. Coach Goodman on Goods: “Richard is solid around the basket and has the explosion to finish above the rim. He’s a physical player that initiates contact and doesn’t shy away. Richard can work on playing harder and staying engaged within the flow of the game.” Goods highlighted a variety of positive flashes at camp, and should be able to emerge as a leader during the upcoming season for Piedmont Classical.
#66: 6’8 ’25 Colt Langdon (Millbrook)
Moving onto a player who continues to garner a reputation as one of the top prospects in his class, Colt Langdon. He’s a skilled, polished forward prospect with IQ, perimeter shooting, and shot-creation ability. Langdon possesses touch, post moves, and floor-spacing ability, but can also attack closeouts and make plays off the bounce as needed. He’s a quality passer and rebounder who moves well for his size. Langdon is also skilled enough to push the break in transition. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a better defender in space. Coach Goodman on Langdon: “Colt scores on all three levels. Displays above-average footwork and patience to set up his defender. Able to expose the mismatch on the floor and get to his desired spots. Colt doesn’t force up shots and knows how to play within the offense. I would like to see him improve his vertical explosion and lateral quickness to further improve.” Langdon stood out as a difference-maker at camp, and should only continue to collect offers during his upcoming sophomore season with Millbrook.
#79: 7’0 ’24 Devin Brafford (Rabun Gap)
Finishing up, we look at a player who possesses a pretty obvious amount of long-term potential, Devin Brafford. He’s a long, wiry post prospect with developing skill for his size and position. Brafford is a capable passer and perimeter shooter with solid footwork around the basket. He displays nice touch, mobility, and quickness as a big man. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would make him a more physical interior player on both ends of the floor. Coach Goodman on Brafford: “Devin is a solid team player that doesn’t force shots. Needs to hit the weights. Shows flashes of being able to become a stretch big, but needs to work on consistency. Positions himself well to rebound the ball, but lacks the necessary strength to maintain position at this stage. Devin can also work on improving his motor and ability to run the floor in transition. Displays soft hands around the rim and can finish when catching the ball on the move.” Brafford highlighted a lot of intrigue at camp, and remains a player to monitor throughout his continued progression at Rabun Gap.
