Scout Notes: South Georgia Road Trip

A 525-mile drive to South Georgia allowed me to catch a great Class A-Public battle between previously undefeated Claxton and Portal in the Turpentine City on Friday night. Portal handed the Tigers a 55-50 loss. On Saturday, I visited Veterans, the lone remaining undefeated team in Class 5A and witnessed the Warhawks rout a shorthanded Peach County team 81-42. Here are some quick notes from the long weekend.

2023 6-10 C Aaron Jones Aaron Jones 6'11" | C Veterans | 2023 State GA – Veterans

Blocks shots without fouling. Still growing into his body and getting better coordination. Will need to add strength and continue to improve his footwork and balance. Can finish at the rim with dunks.

2022 6-3 SG Jacory Brooks – Peach County

Multi-level scorer. Got to his spots in the mid-range. Good size helps him rebound. Has the physical tools to be a solid defender.

2022 6-2 CG Temarius Mathis Temarius Mathis 6'0" | PG Peach County | 2022 State GA – Peach County

Offensive creator. Struggled with shot selection. Capable of filling it up when he’s on. Can shoot the three off the dribble and can play above the rim. Decision making and defense are rooms for growth. Talented natural scorer.

2022 6-3 PF LaDaria Leggett
