Small-Town Sleepers


Posted On: 04/29/18 2:00 PM

Many of these players have made huge impacts on their teams but have gone unnoticed due to playing in a small town. College coaches take note of these small-town sleepers heading into summer:

Javan Stanley (Irwin County/Griffin Grasshoppers)- Javan Stanley (pictured) is a stud for Irwin County as he dominates not only in basketball, but also baseball and football. He averaged 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists and earned All-Region honors last season. He eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for his career and is well on his way to reach 2,000 points next year. Stanley is definitely one to look out for this summer.

Arkavias Lovett (Treutlen County/Team Power)– The 6’6 wing from Treutlen County is one to watch out for this AAU season. Lovett averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game this season and also eclipsed 1,000 points for his career. He is highly athletic and has a knack for finishing around the rim.

Josiah Stewart (Lamar County/Griffin Grasshoppers)– Stewart is very crafty with the ball in his hands. He excels at finishing through contact and is capable of hitting the open shot. Stewart will play a valuable role this summer for the Griffin Grasshoppers.

Kamron Jordan (Treutlen County/Middle Georgia Raptors)– Jordan averaged 17 points and 8 rebounds per game this season. He is a very streaky shooter who aggressively attacks the lane. Jordan can play either guard position and has the tools to dominate at the next level.

Kasabian Mitchell (Treutlen County/DFavors Celtics)– The 6’1 sophomore had a very productive season for Treutlen County. He averaged 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. Mitchell is a quick guard who takes him man off the dribble with ease. As he continually develops over the next couple years, do not be surprised if his game catches the eye of many college coaches.
