Powder Springs, Ga — This weekend, On the Radar Hoops played host to several shoe sponsored sqauds representing each circuit as well as a slew of top independent teams from around the country. Hypesouth Media was on hand for the final travel ball evaluation period and here a few notes from Friday and Saturday.


Bryson Tiller, Atlanta Xpress

We’ve followed Tiller’s progression from afar, but this weekend we got an up close look at the five-star phenom and he was as good as advertised. His strong frame, positional size, and mobility immediately jumped out. The 6-foot-9 power forward did damage in the painted area with his back to the basket and showed flashes of being able to operate free throw line extended. He’s a few years away from being draft eligible, but it is easy to see why pro scouts have already added him to their watch boards.

Ace Bailey, AOT

Bailey’s versatility was beautiful to watch. The 6-foot-10 wing forward demonstrated the capacity to dominate the game with or without the ball in his hands. Offensively, he ran the show distributing, was efficient in the midrange area coming off pin downs, and made a living on second chance putbacks. On the defensive end his ability to keep his man in front and cover ground from the helpside was next level.

Cam Perkins, Warner Robins All-Stars

It was yet another impressive tournament for Perkins. His maturity and understanding of the game are top tier and the word is out. Low major Division-I and Division-II programs prioritized him all weekend. With a few hard offers already in hand (Edward Waters, Miles, Fort Valley State), expect the rising senior to quickly navigate through the recruiting process and make a collegiate decision sooner than later.

Mekhi Ragland, Team Huncho

Massive best describes Ragland. The 6-foot-10, 250-plus pounder clogged the interior and seemingly gobbled up every rebound. His soft touch around the rim coupled with the ability to step out and nail the deep ball caught Kennesaw State’s attention. The Owls were in the gym on the hunt at 8:30am sharp on day one and found their target in the 2025 big-man.

Alex Lowry, AOT

Alex Lowry is an impressive stretch-four that wreaked havoc in pick-in-pop action. He poured in 27-points (six trifectas) including the game winning basket as time expired in AOT’s comeback win over Team Huncho. His performance with coaches sitting baseline definitely put him on some radars, so don’t be surprised to see some offers come down the pike soon.
