TMP 16U

Head Coach : Travis Smith

Ahmad Brown

Ahmad Brown – Ashley Ridge 

Brown 6’5 left-handed forward is a very versatile kid. Ahmad has the ability to defend 1-5 positions on the floor. Brown has a great upside.

Rashad Brown – Ashley Ridge 

Davion Joyner – Fort Dorchester (2022) 

Joyner just a 8th grader playing up a few ages groups doesn’t show no fear at all on the floor.

Antoine Parker

Antoine Parker – Fort Dorchester 

Parker is a absolute WARRIOR on the floor. Parker likes to attack the baseline and plays extremely hard on both ends of the floor. Parker has a great 1st step to the basket and has the ability to explode from the top of the key. Parker finishes strong at the basket and seems to be a magnet for contact.

Parker doesn’t take plays off when in the game.

Emmanuel Johnson

Emmanuel Johnson – Northwood Academy 

Johnson 6’6 post player has a great set of shoulders and bloodlines. Johnson is more of a mover-screener and loose change guy around the basket. Johnson is the son of former University of Georgia basketball standout Katrina McClain-Johnson. McClain-Johnson ranks #2 All-Time in Georgia history in scoring at 2,195 points and was a 3-time Olympian.

Khyree Thompson – Burke HS 

Jamel McGowan – Goose Creek 

Charlie Delongchamps – Wando HS

Jaylen Green – Philip Simmons (Cainhoy/Daniel Island Area) 

Green is a very athletic kid that likes to slash to the basket. Green lacks a skill set and still seems bit of a raw talent still. Philip Simmons has only been open since last Fall 2017.

Nick Freitag – Summerville 

Tobias Lafayette – Porter Gaud 

Marc Haight – Palmetto Christian 

Tristan Freeling

Tristan Freeling – Wando HS 

Freeling plays with a lot of confidence and toughness on the floor. Freeling is not afraid to take a charge on the defensive end and for sure can knock down 3 pointers.
