Thank you to the Thanksgiving tournaments for giving us plates full of basketball.  After viewing many of the games and events, we are ready to debut the Class 2A.

Top 10 in 4A.

The newest iteration of Class 2A will be fascinating.  Loretto, Douglass, and Monterey “moved up” into 2A from 1A while Chattanooga powers (Brainerd, Tyner Academy) and Nashville Metro remain (East Nashville, Pearl-Cohn, Whites Creek, Stratford).  Do not overlook York Institute, Sweetwater, Alcoa, Mitchell.  Bolivar Central is always in the mix, as well.

A Closer Look

[#1] Power Center Academy (PCA) runs out an incredibly talented bunch: Damarion Jackson, P.J. Hillman P.J. Hillman 6'2" | SG Power Center Academy | 2022 State TN , and Nazir Allen Nazir Allen 6'7" | SF Power Center Academy | 2024 State TN .  Their talent is difficult to match statewide in 2A.  CSAS is the surprise team in the Top 10.  Their start has been fantastic. 

[#2] Summertown - Grayson Burleson Grayson Burleson 6'3" | SF Summertown | 2025 TN is a ’25 guard that you just have to watch to appreciate.  Kaden Trotter will balance out the offensive spacing. Rebound. Lead.

[#3] CSAS

[#4] Tyner Academy - The Tyner team is capable of winning a ton of games. Keelan Jackson Keelan Jackson 6'4" | SF Tyner Academy | 2023 State TN
