1. Kowacie Reeves, Jr. | 6’6 G | Westside-Macon | 2021
University of Florida commit
Kowacie Reeves Jr., our reigning Mr. Middle Georgia Basketball winner, has progressed every year since entering high school and is now rated a consensus top-75 prospect nationally by ESPN, Rivals, and 247 Sports. On April 30, 2020, the highly touted 6-foot-6 two-guard committed to the University of Florida choosing the Gators over schools like Stanford, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, and Tennessee to name a few. Expect a continued ascension from Reeves Jr. coming off a junior campaign where he was named Region Co-Player of the Year, Macon Telegraph Co-Middle Georgia Player of the Year, Georgia Athletic Coaches Association 3A-South Player of the Year, and Hoopseen 3A Junior of the Year.
2. Quay Primas | 6’7 F | Central-Macon | 2021
Mercer University commit
Every year, Primas is a guy that gets the job done. He consistently pumps in double-double performances and is a combo forward that low to mid level division-I programs made a priority on trail. The south-paw big recently ended his recruitment by committing to the hometown Mercer University Bears. After averaging 24 points and 14 rebounds and leading his squad to a Final 4 appearance last season, look for Primas to once again wreak havoc in the Georgia High School Association.
3. TJ Grant | 6’6 G | Veterans | 2022
Offers: Mercer University
I’ll say it again, Grant has the potential to be the best player in Middle Georgia. The 6-foot-6 junior continues to be one of the most intriguing prospects in the state. He oozes upside and has shown top level flashes over the years, but needs to focus on displaying more consistency. We’ve saw him turn in huge performances on the school and travel ball levels, so it’s just a matter of time before it all comes together. Schools like Air Force, Elon, Georgia State, and Kennesaw State among others are closely tracking the class of 2022 wing.
4. Travion Solomon | 6’0 PG | Northeast-Macon | 2022
Offers: Mercer University
Over the past few months, Solomon boosted his stock more than any prospect in the mid-state. The Covid-19 Pandemic derailed the spring travel ball calendar, but he made the most of live streamed summer events put together by independent directors. We’ve been on the phone regularly with coaches about different prospects, but Solomon has piqued the most interest. Mercer extended an offer and Belmont, North Alabama, South Florida, Tulane, and UAB have all began preliminary work on the class of 2022 lead guard. He brought home 2A Sophomore of the Year honors last year and we see him continuing to trend up.
5. Jordan Jones | 5’11 PG | FPD | 2021
Jones has arguably been the most consistent school ball player of this group since entering high school, but his non-existence on the travel circuit has seemingly hurt his recruitment and recognition. The sure-fire four year starter has a career average of 19.3 points per game and has led FPD in scoring in each of his first three seasons. This kid has next-level talent and we highly recommend college coaches to do their due diligence here.
The Second Tier
6. Jordan Brown | 6’8 F | Northside-WR | 2021
Offers: Shaw University, Xavier University-Louisiana, Maryville College, Hinds CC, Coahoma CC
The Northside-WR forward is one the more versatile forwards in the area and his value on the defensive end jumps off the screen. Brown relentlessly patrols the paint blocking and altering shots. His timing and leaping ability have been on full display this summer and should be noted by programs looking for a good interior defender. Along with his athletic capability, Brown is an AP level-dual enrolled student that will be attractive to a wide variety of schools. Shaw University and Xavier University-Louisiana recently extended offers and Keiser University is showing strong interest.
7. William Freeman | 6’2 G | Baldwin | 2021
Freeman, the reigning Baldwin County Player of the Year, is a steady producer at the school and travel ball levels. The sharpshooter led the Braves in scoring last season throwing in 16.5 points per game and is one of the top offensive threats during the summer with Team Strap.
8. Milique Smith | 6’3 G/F | Upson Lee | 2021
Smith quietly took over for the rebuilding Knights. Last season, the 6-foot-3 tweener averaged 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists per game en route to being selected All-State by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association, Hoopseen, and Sandy’s Spiel. He was also recognized as an All Middle Georgia performer by the Macon Telegraph and named Region 2-AAAA Player of the Year.
9. Jamal Taylor| 5’9 PG | Hancock | 2021
The high energy end-to-end point guard may be small in stature, but he plays like a giant in between the lines. Taylor came through in a big way last year leading Hancock to an A-Public State Championship in the final seconds. During the summer he frequents showcase events running with Team Georgia Magic and is often very productive. Taylor has gotten better each year and we believe this season will be no different.
10. Greg Jones | 6’3 F| Warner Robins | 2021
Offers: Lagrange College, Saint Vincent College
Jones makes his debut in the rankings in large part due to his high motor and relentless approach. The 6-foot-3 utility forward isn’t the most naturally gifted prospect, but he puts on his hardhat and gets the job done. Whether it be scoring, rebounding, defending, or being a vocal leader, you can count on Jones to do whatever is best game-to-game.
