2026 Q Williams (Forsyth Country Day): Williams has been playing at a high level this season, as you can see he has really embraced being a leader and a go-to option for FCDS. Williams is a tough and scrappy guard that competes on both ends. He excels in being able to create for himself and get inside the defense, finishing over defenders well but also finding ways to get his teammates involved. He has elevated his game more and taken on the challenge to lead this team, as he can make his impact felt in a variety of ways.

2025 KJ Younger (Weddington): Younger has clearly elevated his play and is now showing/proving that he is a scholarship-worthy prospect. He is averaging nearly 25 points per game this season for his team, excelling in his ability to be that physical x-factor that can not only handle himself in various positions but can physically overpower opponents on his way in getting downhill and embracing contact.

2025 Dylan Deluca (United Faith): Have to give it up for Deluca and his improvement in his game, and it started this summer with what he was showing. Deluca gives UFCA a player with good size but is one that can mix it up offensively and play a variety of levels. Whether he is scoring inside, creating off the bounce and attacking downhill, or popping out to score, he is a solid X-factor and has been playing really well over the last few months.

2026 Rares Trandafir (Rabun Gap): Trandafir is one that I would closely have my eyes on, as he is a young big man but he offers a lot on the table and still has potential left in his game. But the few times we have watched him, there is a lot to like about his game and he is trending in the right direction. His comfort level in operating inside and out is impressive, showing the ability to face up and knock down mid-range shots and threes, but also use his size to finish at the rim.  Expect his name to catch on more with college coaches.

2024 Jordan Durham (TBS): Durham has been a player who has excelled in his role and really embraced his ability to bring production to the table when the opportunities are there. The blend of length and skill allows him to make plays and bring value to the table, while also showing more of his offensive game in scoring from three in catch-and-shoot situations as well as driving and finishing.
