Atlanta, GA – Below you will find a list (part 4) of a few Georgia prospects who I have characterized as “sleepers”.
2019 point guard Jaire Eastmond – Wheeler High School
Jaire Eastmond, or also known as Roscoe, is in for a huge senior season with powerhouse Wheeler High School. The 5-foot-10 point guard is one of the biggest sleepers we have in the peach state. He is the definition of a floor general and tempo creator. Roscoe is a pure distributor for his teammates and an exceptional playmaker. What you will also notice about Eastmond is his ability to defend. Even though he is a small point guard, he can be pesky and very distrubtive on the defensive side of the ball. Jaire’s lone offer is from Stetson but he has expressed interest from schools like Jacksonville State, South Alabama, Samford, and Southern Utah. Without question, Jaire will be the engine that leads this Wheeler team this season, as he has had a ton of experience on the varsity level.
2019 shooting guard DJ Patrick – Sprayberry High School
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard DJ Patrick has recently impressed at the Grassroots United Elite Wings camp about two weeks ago. Patrick has really improved his game and body over the last year or so. He carries extremely long arms and in my opinion has upgraded his all around skill set. The rising senior is a real sleeper in the state of Georgia. After sitting out a year of varsity and playing JV due to the GHSA transfer rules, DJ is in for an eye opening senior season with Sprayberry High School. He is a nice perimeter shooter who can also put the ball on the floor and make a play. Patrick is able to move without the ball well and be a slasher on the offensive end as well. He has expressed interest from schools like Baylor, Kansas State, UGA, UTEP, Kennesaw State, Middle Tennessee, Idaho, and West Florida. DJ will certainly be one of my favorites to win region player of the year in Region 6 in class 6A.
2019 shooting guard Reco Hallmon Jr. – Grayson High School
Need a perimeter threat from the wing spot? Reco Hallmon Jr. of Grayson High School could be a kid to keep an eye on this upcoming season. Reco is a 6-foot-4 shooting guard who is able to spread the defense with his shooting skills and can also defend on the defensive side of the ball. He is an underrated rebounder for a guard and has the capability to play all wing positions. Reco’s only offer as of now comes from Winthrop University. Schools like Loyola Maryland, Campbell, Brown, and more have expressed interest in the rising senior so far.

2021 point guard Madison Durr – Pace Academy
Rising sophomore Madison Durr has transfered from Saint Francis to Pace Academy, where former Miller Grove and famous head coach Sharman White is now running the program. The 6-foot-2 point guard has received interest from schools like Tulane, Auburn, and Tennessee. Madison is a very strong point guard whose greatest asset in my eyes is his defense. His on court and defensive awareness is incredible. Durr has long arms which also help him distrupt passing lanes and secure rebounds on defense. On offense, Madison is good in the open floor and has the vision for a point guard to find his open teammates. This high school season should certainly be a development year for the young sophomore.
2019 point guard Quinton McElroy – McEachern High School
Quinton McElroy might be another big sleeper prospect here in Georgia. Playing at McEachern, Quinton can be over looked by all the top star talent, but he certainly has the skills to play at the next level. He is a lefty 6-foot-1 point guard who is crafty and has a great feel for the game. McElroy is capable of making plays for his team and can knock down his jumpers when needed. He has a very tight handle with the ball and is able to defend and keep his opponent from scoring. No doubt Quinton will play an important role this season for this McEachern squad. The rising senior is looking to put his skills on noticed and capture a state championship.
