This weekend we were in attendance at the Southern Jam Fest in Hampton, Virginia presented by Hoop Group. The Southern Jam Fest is annually one of the best events during the dead period and this year it followed previous years with tons of talent. Below we take a look at some of the standouts from the 15u age group.
2022 Jayden Epps | Boo Williams
Jayden has the capablity to be one of the best point guards from the 757 area since Matt Coleman and at the top of his class nationally. Epps is a complete guard that can do it all when the ball is in his hands. This past weekend he was getting to the rim pretty much whenever he wanted and connecting at the rim or drawing a foul. He is an extrmeely competitive player that plays a lot older than he actually is. Expect Epps to be a heavly recruited point guard all throughout high school.
2021 Efton Reid | Team Loaded VA
Efton had a breakout freshmen season for Steward this past year and he is already making noise early on this spring too. The 6’11 rising sophomore has tremendous size and a great motor. He can score around the basket, block shots, rebound on offense and defense and for a big man, he is a really good shooter from all areas on the court. Off the court he is a tremendous student, as well.
2021 Roosevelt Wheeler | Team Loaded VA
Wheeler is another big man from the Richmond area who really stood out during his freshman season at John Marshall. He is a guy that will get tons of double-doubles during his high school career which will defiitely translate to the college level. High major programs have already taken notice of his skill has he most recently picked up an offer from Florida.
2021 Zaakir Williamson | DC Premier
Zaakir is one of the better long term prospects that played in the 15u age group this past weekend. He was dominant in the post and can score in bunches right around the rim. Defensively, he is very good and defends well down low on the block. He will be a highly touted recruit from high major programs in the 2021 class.
2021 AJ Williams | Team Loaded VA
AJ is another very good long term prospect from the talented Team Loaded 15U team. He excels in transaition, can pass it well, finish nicely at the rim and can shoot the ball from a lot of different areas on the court. One high major program has already noticed his talents as he picked up an offer from Ole Miss.
