Atlanta, GA – The Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball program hosted one of the few high school summer league games this past weekend at their own recreation center in Atlanta, GA. A few known programs in Georgia participated in this event and also high schools from Florida and Tennessee. I had the pleasure to stop by this past Sunday and was very impressed on who and what I saw. Take a look below on who stood out.
2020 wing Corey Walker – Bishop Snyder (FL) / Game Elite (FL)
If you have not heard the name Corey Walker as of yet then you will sooner than later. Corey and Bishop Snyder (FL) squad were one of the two Florida based programs to make the trip to Atlanta this past weekend. Walker is a solid nice sized scoring wing who did his thing this past weekend. Running with another standout 2019 point guard Jalen Nesmith, Corey and Jalen were able to give us a glimpse of what we would see come next high school season. Corey has great size for a characterized wing. He is a score first prospect who can score inside and out. He was able to show his strenght against the bigger defenders down low when finishing around the basket and was able to get to his spots and knock down jumpers. Bishop Snyder (FL) is expected to be back in the peach state again during the high school season.
2020 point guard KD Johnson – Southwest Dekalb (GA) / Game Elite (GA)
One of the toughest guys in the peach state is KD Johnson out of Southwest Dekalb. KD is coming off a decent spring where he ran with the Nike EYBL Georgia Stars 16U squad and before transferring over to the Game Elite Black 16U squad. Johnson is a hard nosed and pitbull defender and can give his opponents problems. He has developed, and is still developing, into a pure point guard. His offensive game has improved tremendously over the last year and he is finding scoring the ball very easy. He is an attack first point guard but will not hesitate to find the open man. KD’s passion for the game speaks for itself and you can tell he is a competitive guy. Only a rising junior, expect Mr. Johnson to have an incredible junior campaign with SWD.
2019 point guard Brenden Tucker – Dacula (GA) / Atlanta Celtics (GA)
Brenden Tucker is certainly one of the most under the radar prospects we have in the state of Georgia. Brenden is a very explosive guard who can run the point and also play off the ball at the two. At 6’3 he has fantastic hang time and is very quick off the dribble. He is a tough guard and who I think can average 20 or more points per game in this upcoming high school season. Tucker has had a decent spring with Atlanta Celtics in the Adidas Gauntlet. Brenden already holds a few D1 offers such as Xavier, Middle Tennessee State, Ole Miss, and more.
2020 guard Eugene Brown – Southwest Dekalb (GA) / Athletes of Tomorrow (GA)
The most improved prospect I had witnessed this past Sunday was no other than Eugene Brown of SWD. When I say most improved I really mean skillset and body wise. Eugene’s game looked very impressive on Sunday at Georgia Tech from when I last seen him a few months back. His body looks fit and is now a very intriguing prospect going into the July live period and into the next high school season. Eugene was able to show his perimeter jumper and his athleticism when attacking the basket. A long 6’5 wing, Brown should be receiving a few interest at least coming up this July period and maybe a few offers.
