Team 6

Coach: Torrence Lathon

#34: 5'9 '26 Grant Jacques (Grace Christian)

Starting things off, we look at a player that made his presence felt despite being the smallest camper on the team, Grant Jacques. He's a young, unselfish guard prospect with an excellent shooting stroke and solid two-way feel for the game. Jacques is a useful ball-handler and passer with penetration skills, but arguably makes a bigger impact as a spot-up threat from beyond the arc. He also displays a high motor and willingness to make hustle plays. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would allow him to become a more physically imposing player. Coach Lathon on Jacques: 'Grant has a good attitude. He plays fairly well when involved with the ball, but needs to improve his off-ball presence on both ends of the floor. Grant shoots it at a high clip and is willing to accept coaching.' Jacques enjoyed another solid showing at camp and will be a prospect to watch grow over the coming years at Grace Christian. 

#35: 5'10 '25 Andreas Kazakos (Forsyth Country Day)

Next, we look at a player that simply knows how to provide a steady, reliable presence to a team, Andreas Kazakos. He's a scrappy, high-motor guard prospect with an unselfish mentality and a fairly well-rounded skillset. Kazakos is a capable ball-handler and playmaker with the necessary quickness to effectively get by opponents at the point of attack. He's a quality shooting threat with the ability to knock down jumpers off the catch or dribble, both from midrange and beyond the arc, and forces opponents to respect his off-ball presence. Kazakos displays a nice feel for the game on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working to become a craftier ball-handler, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Lathon on Kazakos: 'Andreas plays hard and knocks down open shots at a nice percentage. He's a good teammate but I would like to see him get more involved as a rebounder.' Kazakos did a lot of things well at camp and should be a useful contributor for Forsyth Country Day going forward. 

#52: 6'0 '23 Seth Pitts (Shining Light)

Moving onto a player that displays an understanding of how to operate from either backcourt spot, Seth Pitts. He's a scrappy, fairly well-rounded guard prospect with the ability to initiate the offense or do a little bit of everything without the ball. Pitts is a quality passer and finisher with a knack for finding scoring opportunities as a cutter. He rebounds well for his size, provides nice energy on defense, and knows how to make correct decisions in transition. Pitts can also knock down perimeter jumpers at a respectable rate. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a more lethal penetrating threat. Coach Lathon on Pitts: 'Seth is a solid player. He plays well within the team concept and is willing to defer to others. Passed the ball really well. Offers a pretty well-rounded game.' Pitts consistently found ways to make an impact during his time at camp, and could be a useful late addition for the right program.

#53: 6'0 '24 Misean Rodgers (Athens Drive)

Continuing onto a player that made a lasting impression through his tough, physical approach, Misean Rodgers. He's a scrappy, athletic guard prospect with a nice feel and active motor on both ends of the floor. Rodgers possesses sharp quickness and a tight handle, which allows him to consistently get downhill and touch the paint'where he's able to finish or make the necessary pass to set up others. Rodgers is a quality defender with great instincts for playing the passing lanes. He's also a phenomenal rebounder, especially for his size, and consistently makes hustle plays. Next in his development process is working on his spot-up presence, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Lathon on Rodgers: 'Misean is excellent at handling the ball and playing physical. I would like to see him controlling the game more regularly. He has great speed, but slowing down and surveying the floor would help his game grow.' Rodgers proved to be a definite difference-maker at camp and should be a useful piece for Athens Drive during his upcoming senior season. 

#56: 6'0 '25 David Major (Apex Friendship)

Next, we look at a player who possesses a nice crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, David Major. He's a very balanced, well-rounded guard prospect with a quality combination of IQ, motor, and skill. Major displayed the ability to create his own shot, set up others, or find opportunities without the ball. He can score from all levels and outwork his assignment on both ends of the floor. Major looks to make hustle plays while naturally doing a little bit of everything on offense. Next in his development process is working on becoming a more consistent spot-up threat, as it would make him even more impactful without the ball. Coach Lathon on Major: 'David has a great feel for the game. I would like to see him improve on his shooting and overall shot-selection, as it'll allow his game to expand.' Major did a lot of things well at camp and should be poised for a very productive summer season.

Weerdhuizen also plays with a high motor and team-first approach on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Lathon on Weerdhuizen: 'Max plays hard and handles ball pressure well. He has a good skillset, particularly for his age, but can continue to develop his presence as an off-ball threat.' Weerdhuizen was a standout performer at camp, securing the Playmaker Award, and remains a prospect to monitor over the foreseeable future.

#74: 6'2 '26 Zach Rachmuth (Thales Academy)

Continuing onto a player that consistently found ways to make an impact on both ends of the floor, Zach Rachmuth.

He's a tough, scrappy, very well-rounded wing prospect with an understanding of how to naturally affect all facets of the game. Dinkins can reliably pass, handle, and score the ball, but doesn't necessarily require a ton of touches in order to be effective. He's an excellent shooting threat, both from midrange and beyond the arc, with the ability to attack closeouts and finish through contact or with either hand around the basket. Dinkins also displays IQ and a high motor on both ends of the floor. 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 Lathon on Dinkins: 'Zane has tremendous feel for the game and is a polished scorer. I would love to see him use his offensive skills more as a playmaker.' Dinkins proved to be an asset at camp, and should be a useful late addition for the right program at the next level.

Umstead works hard defensively, provides an active presence on the glass, and is capable of finishing around the basket when necessary. He runs the floor well in transition and understands how to make an impact within the flow of the action. Umstead consistently controlled the glass and outworked opponents for extra opportunities.

He plays hard in the paint and around the basket. He displays great effort but I would like to see him develop a second gear.' Umstead enjoyed a quality showing at camp and should be a useful piece for Westchester Country Day during his upcoming senior season. 

#88: 6'5 '26 Lee Podger (Cary)

Finishing up, we look at a player that possesses a clear amount of long-term appeal, Lee Podger. He's a long, wiry, young forward/post prospect with solid touch and terrific perimeter shooting abilities. Podger possesses a high IQ, team-oriented mentality, and high motor on both ends of the floor. He's a lethal floor-spacing option from beyond the arc, but can also hit midrange jumpers or attack closeouts when necessary. Podger even highlighted the ability to create his own shot off the bounce and score or set up others. He moves pretty well as a cutter and passes the ball effectively to set up others. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would naturally make him a better rebounder. Coach Lathon on Podger: 'Lee is a great shooter. I would love to see him develop more of an inside presence. Often the tallest guy on the court, every rebound should be his.'
