Atlanta, GA – Below you will find a list (part 3) of a few Georgia prospects who I have characterized as “sleepers”
2019 wing Brandon Deravine – Campbell High School
The rising senior wing Brandon Deravine had a sort of breakout junior season with his Campbell High School squad. After advancing to the Georgia Class 7A elite 8, which is the state’s highest classification, Brandon was a key piece in last seasons success. He is a 6-foot-5 wing who is extremely active, especially on the glass. He is a lenghty wing who causes mismatch problems at times for his opponents as he is able to play inside and outside. Brandon is an effecient scorer inside the painted area but can also knock down a few shots from outside the arc. He has expressed interest from Morehead State, Wofford, Lenoir-Ryhn, Belmont Abbey, and Georgia Southwestern so far.
2019 shooting guard James Glisson III – Southwest Dekalb High School
James Glisson III has improved not just skill wise, but he has also improved physically from what I have seen these last few months since the end of his junior season. He has transformed into a nice sized two guard and that is exactly what Southwest Dekalb will need for this upcoming season. Glisson III has also an improved jump shot and is now a kid that defenders will have to close out harder on cause he will get hot in a blink. He will certainly be a player to watch out for coming into his senior year and will be a huge part of the Panthers big three that also include Eugene Brown and KD Johnson. After this past summer, James has expressed interest in UNC Charlotte, Charleston Southern, and Stetson so far.
2021 shooting guard Matthew Cleveland – Cambridge High School
Matthew Cleveland has sort of made his name known in the state of Georgia so far coming off his freshman campaign and a stellar AAU season with Hype Hawks in the silver Adidas Gauntlet. He is a lenghty 6-foot-2 shooting guard who is able to score from inside and outside. Matthew is very versatile and can play and defend multiple positions. He has the ability to create his own shot off the dribble and can knock down the open three if left open. Matthew has not received any offers yet so far but has expressed some interest from Georgia State.
2020 guard Alyn Breed – McEachern High School
Behind all the star talent on that McEachern roster is a hidden gem named Alyn Breed. The 6-foot-3 combo guard could literally be considered “a bucket”. Alyn is extremely talented at the guard position and has an array of ways to score in the halfcourt. He is an exciting guard to watch and evaluate, in my opinion, and that I believe can play on the collegiate level. He is able to take his defender off the dribble and can also penetrate the lane if he spots a wide lane. Breed gives this McEachern squad depth at the guard position and will help spread the defense with his ability to shoot from the outside. I certainly predict this season he will be able to showcase his talents more for this McEachern Indian squad given the key pieces they have lost from last seasons team.
2020 shooting guard Sam Hines – Wheeler High School
The 6-foot-4 rising senior Sam Hines will be taking his talents to Georgia powerhouse Wheeler High School for his junior season. Sam’s game has gotten better over the past year and should be ready to take the challenge at his new school. He is a big bodied two-guard whose able to get inside the defense and make a play at the basket. Sam’s size also helps him on the defensive side of the ball as well, where he can effect passing lanes and keep his man in front of him. Sam’s presence will certainly help Wheeler’s depth this year, especially after losing their star center EJ Montgomery, who is currently enrolled at Kentucky. Sam’s lone offer so far is from North Florida and after running with Game Elite 16s this past summer, he has expressed interest from Georgia, Georiga Tech, Florida, and Clemson.
2019 shooting guard Maurice Harvey – Miller Grove High School
Maurice Harvey without question will be the leader this season for one of Georgia’s powerhouse programs in Miller Grove. The 6-foot-2 guard is one of the toughest guards we have here in the state of Georgia. He is able to score on all levels but is one of the best on ball defenders in the country. Maurice can be very distrubtive on defense and makes it a priority to not let his man score. Going into his senior season, Maurice will be looking to lead this Wolverine squad back to the state championship for the 2nd consecutive year. He has expressed interest from Austin PEAY, Tennessee State, Georgia, and Central Connecticut.
