As we approach the Christmas Holiday break and teams gear up for holiday tournaments and area play we take a look at some of the top players in the 7A classification.

With the recent re-classification of schools, the 7A classification looks a little different with the last several champions in Mountain Brook and Lee-Montgomery going down to 6A.

However, with those powerhouses leaving the division there was no drop off in talent as those schools remaining are stacked, to say the least. 

JD Palm, 6’9 SF, 2025, Dothan: Ok, I know 2025! But at 6'9 with wing skills and the ability to shoot the ball with range, this kid deserves an early mention. He is currently giving productive minutes on the varsity level with several games of impressive numbers. He is very aggressive at attacking the rim and has that early motor to dunk everything he can. He is developing on the defensive end of the floor but has shown great timing at challenging shots on the inside. As he gets stronger and his game continues to develop he could be a very high-level prospect. Remember where you heard it from first!
