Macon, Georgia — This year, the Heart of Georgia Classic focused on elementary and middle grade squads and identified potential future stars. Let’s check out who set themselves apart.

Caden Lowe, Georgia Rebels

Lowe’s name consistently showed up in evaluators notebooks. He had a few notable twenty-plus point performances on day one. His talent and constant energy have him ahead of the curve and we fully expect his development to continue to progress moving forward.

Quentin Jackson, Middle Georgia Family

This kid is a small giant that can flat out play basketball. He puts the ball in the hole at a high-clip, creates opportunities for teammates, and competes hard on the defensive end. But what jumped out the most was his great attitude towards coaching and approach to the game.

Chauncey Young, Swain Basketball

Young was a monster on the boards in the 12 & under division. He was the anchor for a well-oiled Swain Basketball squad. A 15 point, 14 rebound output in the championship game helped him collect the 12u MVP.

Elijah Tillman, Gwinnett Express

Tillman is a high-level athlete that erased shot after shot and took pride protecting the lane. He was the best shot blocker in attendance and is a defensive star in the making.

Jarvis Williams, Warner Robins All-Stars

Williams was arguably the top overall performer from the tournament. He led the All-Stars to a 4-0 record and scored double digits every game (12 points, 23 points, 13 points, 22 points), but his much improved court vision is worth mentioning. We think it’s safe to say the 14u MVP had a bit of a coming out party and is another name to put in your pocket for later.

Karon Plummer, Warner Robins All-Stars

Plummer did it all for Warner Robins averaging 8 points, 5.5 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals in four games. His effort across the board impressed our staff. He has noticeably grown a few inches and gotten better since we last evaluated him. Stay tuned because a breakout could be on the horizon here.

Josh Sanders, Middle Georgia PUSH

Sanders proved to have the skills to go along with elite size. It was a consensus among evaluators that the 6-foot-7 seventh grader had the highest ceiling of any prospect on hand. Simply put, he oozes potential and has stardom written all over him.

Jaiden Center, Pressure Athletic Group

Dog best describes Center. His defense led to offense all weekend which guided PAG to a championship in the thirteen and under division. An eleven-point, 5 steal title game performance helped him grab the 13u MVP.
