Milton, Georgia – Last night’s exhibition matchup between two GHSA class 6A schools delivered a suprising contest. The Sprayberry High School (Marietta, Georgia) Yellow Jackets made their way over to Milton, Georgia where they faced Cambridge High School. It was a back and forth afair as Cambridge defeated Sprayberry at a high score of 94-92. Both programs are coming off playoff appearances in the 2017-2018 season and were looking to make it back to the class 6A playoffs this year. Below I made just a few notes on what you should know from last night’s matchup.
The Rise of Sophomore Matthew Cleveland
The 2021 wing Matthew Cleveland of Cambrigde High School is one Georgia’s best prospects in the 2021 class. The young 6-foo-6 sophomore finished last night’s matchup with a solid 22 points and 13 rebounds and along with a couple steals and blocks. College coaches should be in contact with Matthew as the year goes on and as the next AAU season begins. He is a lengthy prospect with long arms that helps him be so effective on the glass on both ends of the floor. He is not an elite scorer but Matthew can be a slasher and good at running the floor in transition. He kind of reminds me of Kyle Anderson the way he moves on the floor and how he plays at his own pace. He is certainly an elite prospect in the peach state and will be looking to make some noise during his sophomore campaign.
Sprayberry’s DJ Patrick deserves some attention
2019 wing DJ Patrick of Sprayberry High School could be a late bloomer in some eyes. The senior wing had a solid varsity debut finishing with 23 points and 11 rebounds. After transferring from Hillgrove High School (Powder Springs, Georgia) last season, DJ was forced to play JV for a year and not varsity. Since then, he has became an intriguing and emerging prospect and will certainly lead Sprayberry in scoring this season. He is a 6-foot-5 wing with tremondously long arms and can be a perimeter threat. DJ is an athlete and can be a scoring threat around the basket. He has already expressed a few interest from colleges and will be looking to receive more attention as the year goes on.
Cambridge’s Senior Point Guard Kamar Robertson
2019 point guard Kamar Robertson is one of Georgia’s best available seniors. Robertson had a solid summer where he ran with Atlanta Celtics in the Adidas Gauntlet and Game Elite. His stellar play earned him a trip to the famous and annual Pangos All American Camp in Los Angeles, California. Kamar sits at 6-foot-1 and is a strong and down hill type of point guard. He can penetrate and make his way inside the opponents territory with his quickness. He is not a great shooter but he is certainly able to connect on his jumpers. Robertson is very athletic for a guard his size and it showed last night as he was able to punch in two dunks. Without question Kamar will be playing college basketball somewhere by this time next year.
