TMP 16U Head Coach : Travis Smith [caption id="attachment_333651" align="alignnone" width="300"] Ahmad Brown[/caption] 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. [caption id="attachment_334089" align="alignnone" width="300"] Antoine Parker[/caption] 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. [caption id="attachment_338703" align="alignnone" width="300"] Emmanuel Johnson[/caption] 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  [caption id="attachment_338704" align="alignnone" width="300"] Tristan Freeling[/caption] 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.
