Word of God Guard Malik Johnson: He’s another player that had his season cut short due to a broken wrist, he’s worked his way back after a midseason transfer to Word of God and is a 2019 prospect to keep an eye on. The court vision, ball handling, explosion and defense are all attributes to his game that make him a player that will catch your attention.

Wesleyan Christian Guard Shawn Walker Jr.: Another player that is underrated, he has many of the tools that you love to see from a PG. His IQ for the game is high, he’s 6’5 with long arms and has a gift for passing the ball, each time we see him play he makes a pass or two that makes us say wow. With some good games during the spring live periods, he could see some schools take a new interest in him and become on the higher stock risers of the group.

Team Wall/Athens Drive Guard DJ Robertson: One of the more underrated players in the state, he’s looking to change that this summer with some top notch performances on the Adidas Gauntlet. During the high school season he averaged over 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists per game while helping Athens Drive reach the state playoffs with a record of 18-9

Athletes of Tomorrow Guard John Michael Wright: A broken wrist ended his season prematurely but now he’s fully healthy and back to his normal self. He can score the ball at a high level, brings a high amount of intensity on the defensive end and plays with confidence. With this being his first year playing in the EYBL many may not know or recognize him but if he plays the way we have seen him play before, he could boost his stock in a major way.

Team United Wing Khuath Gatkuoth: This past season at Village Christian, he had some very impressive showings with some 30 points games. He’s a legit 6’5-6’6 and can play both ends of the floor on the perimeter very well, so far he’s picked up an offer from UMass and has interest from quite a few MM and HM programs.
