#CBHoopsFallShowcase: Allec Williams
Westover HS in Albany, GA is home to one of the most under recruited PG's in the State right now and that is 2016 5'10 Allec Williams . Williams participated in our Fall Showcase on September 26 in Macon,GA and had coaches raving about his style of play and even had coaching staffs ask me to have him play another game. Williams has gotten stronger each and every year, he has committed himself to the weight room since last season, and it has shown with him being more explosive and finishing with contact. 4 year programs are showing intrest in Williams everyday and coming in to see him workout .Williams stock is rising and will continue to rise throughout the season with point guards coming off the board. A lot of programs will be looking for point guards late in the recruiting season, I think that Allec Williams will be one of the most recruited PG's late , especially with him being a good student with a 3.6 GPA. We caught up with Ravii Givens of Go Hard Training 365 who has been putting in work with Allec, " He has a high IQ for the game, making about 1500 jumpers a week , he has been on the weights hard this off season, which is making him more aggressive and giving him confidence" said Givens. CB Hoops will be in Albany this year checking out Williams and his Westover crew.
The 6’9 “Tree” in Columbus
Northside High School in Columbus, GA is known for having big men come through their school, with former 6’10 twin towers Torin Walker who signed with Oklahoma State and then finished at Middle Tennessee and James Vincent who signed and finished his career at Georgia State. Next Up for Head Coach Kenny Lawrence is 2016 6’9 Davion “Tree” Thomas. Thomas is one of the most athletic players in the State, he is a 4man that can step out and make the three point shot. Thomas has had multiple Division 1 programs that have been in to watch him workout and offered him on the spot. Thomas will be a late Division 1 signee, assuming that he gets a qualifying test score and he will be one of the most recruited unsigned big men in the country. Thomas has been participating in my weekly “GRIND” sessions and has really impressed me with his Work Ethic and his shooting ability. “Tree” is a couple more dribbles away from being a pretty good 3 man,if he keeps working on the defensive end he will have a chance. I think the light is starting to click on for Thomas, he is starting to understand that he has to work harder to get to the next level. There are no character issues with Thomas, I think with that being said and his work ethic picking up he will make a good late pick up for a program.
The South GA Beast
South Georgia is known for football, football and then my hometown Tift County Blue Devil Basketball, led by Head Coach Dr. Eric Holland and Staff. Every year it’s a special player in South Georgia that College coaches want to recruit. In the 2017 class it’s Preston “PJ” Horne , college coaches will be lined up at “The Palace” home of Blue Devil Basketball. Standing at 6’6 225 carrying a 3.0 gpa. Horne is a coaches dream if they are not scared of an undersized, tough , strong ,country boy that can score on the block and can step out make three point shot and go get a rebound. What I like most about Horne is how he finishes around the rim, he is very explosive and is a highlight waiting to happen. Horne has had a strong career for Tift County so far, he has started every game for the blue devils and helped lead them to State Championship in 2014, and average 16pts,12rpg & 6blks per game, at this rate PJ has a chance to be one of the best Blue Devils to put on the uniform in Tifton,GA. “Preston is the most coachable player that I have ever had. He has the ability to take individual instruction and apply it to 5 on 5 play. But most importantly, he is an extremely respectful and humble young man.” said Coach Holland. CB Hoops evaluated Horne at the Auburn Elite Camp this past weekend and I left thinking is he the next Jae Crowder of the NBA Boston Celtics, that plays his tail off like Horne and is very humble that went to South GA Tech to Howard JC Texas to Marquette, time will tell but he has a chance and CB Hoops will be watching at home in South Georgia .
The River City Scorer
Somewhere on the Chattahoochee River in Phenix City,AL is a 2016 scoring guard named Tre Todd of Central Phenix City,AL scoring basket after basket. Tre Todd is one of the better scoring guards in the 2016 class in the State of Alabama, average 15ppg for Head Coach Bobby Wright at Central. Todd led Central Phenix City to a 22-4 season last year as a junior and looks to bring a State Championship back to the River this year. The 5’10 Guard can score it with the best of them , he is quick as lighting with the basketball and can guard you for 94ft. Todd made plays all spring and summer on the AAU circuit with the Georgia Kings an YMCA travel team out of Columbus,GA, which is right across the river from Phenix City.
Gerald Ogeltree the Head Coach of the Georgia Kings tells CB Hoops that Tre Todd biggest attributes is his work ethic ,dedication and being consistent on the court and in the classroom. Tre Todd carries an 3.0 GPA and has a 17 on the ACT test and is scheduled to take again on next test date. “ He leads by example and lives in the gym. It’s rare that you find a kid who can score like he can, he truly prides himself on being a lockdown defender and whoever gets Todd services will be getting a good one.” said Ogeltree of Georgia Kings. CB Hoops will be hanging out across the river in Phenix City keeping track of the talented 2016 guard.
Skilled Big Man in Lagrange
There is plenty of talent in Atlanta, GA on every corner and there is plenty of talent outside of Atlanta,GA. Every coach in the country is looking for a big guy with some size that can play. 2016 6’9 Whit Moreman of Lagrange Academy HS (GA) who played with the Georgia Kings and Atlanta Xpress AAU travel teams is very Intriguing,he is very skilled and athletic for his size, he is one of the sleeper big men to watch this upcoming season. Moreman had a very productive Junior year where he average 17ppg & 13ppg for the private school in Lagrange, GA for Head Coach Britt Gaylor. Moreman runs the floor and block shots well and has decent footwork for size, he also does a decent job of putting the ball on the floor .
There will be no worries with Moreman grades, he is great in the classroom carrying a 3.7 GPA and 24 on the ACT. Moreman has heavy intrest from Navy and is getting tons of Division 2 Intrest from Lincoln Memorial , Kentucky Wesleyan , West Alabama and West Florida per Coach Gaylor. With the need for more and more post players his intrest level will pick up throughout the season. CB Hoops will be following the highly skilled big man all year long, stay tuned to cblackhoops.com.
