Macon, Georgia – Bigs are always highly coveted by college coaches and there was no shortage of quality, skilled post players in attendance at Hypesouth Unsigned Hype Camp. Here are some that stood out.
Shania Bryant 2023, 6’0, Jones County
Bryant is a physical specimen that used a nice combination of power and ball skills. In an era heavily dominated by guard play it was a breath of fresh air to see a throwback big be effective inside and out. Bryant was at her best in the paint but also made plays from the midpost area on out to the top of the key.
Jalayzha Williams 2023, 5’11, Northeast-Macon
If there was a blueprint for physical post players, Williams would fit the description. She banged with her back to the basket on the low block and set bruising screens to free up teammates. The Raiderette senior also showed the ability to knock down 15-footers off pick-and-pop action.
Maya Crawford 2024, 6’1, Central-Macon
Last year, Crawford missed portions of the school and travel ball seasons due to injury, so it was good to see her back in the mix getting some action. She was patient with the ball in her hands, made a couple strong drop-step finishes, and rebounded at a high-clip on both ends. The Central-Macon junior could play her way into some rotational minutes this season if she manages to consistently play under control.
Jamiya Zellner 2023, 6’0, Mary Persons
Zellner is another big that has made small strides in her game. Her progression from a year ago was evident. She is seemingly in line to see an uptick in production with her development continuing to trend in the right direction. We’ll be keeping tabs on this intriguing prospect from Forsyth, Georgia.
