I found myself drawn to the many underdog storylines which existed across the Atlanta Astros organization last year, players rising from the depth chart or garnering much-deserved attention after finally getting to shine from out behind other star players.

This year's group will likely foster some of those same scenarios, and I got a good look at some of them Tuesday night in their mixed workout. Here are some of the standouts:

KaRon Strickland, PG, Druid Hills, 2022

Quick, smart floor general looked comfortable with the ball in his hands. He made good decisions both distributing and looking for gaps to score. May be slightly under 6-feet, but like most of the Astro guards, will absolutely get up into you at the defensive end.

DJ Liggion, SG, Chamblee, 2022

Saw Liggion play at Buford over Christmas and he quickly caught my eye then as well. Carries a rep as a long-range bomber, and he showed some of that off, but I loved seeing him put it on the floor and attack the middle a bit. That dimension takes the 6-footers game to a different level.

Adrian Bryant, CG, Homeschooled, 2022

Impressive speed with the ball made him a tough guard
