We have reached the end of the 2021 Travel Season, and a number of players in the Peach have really raised their stock after playing in front of college coaches for the first time in over a year. Here are some of the notable stock boosters:
Josh Reed, AC Georgia/Pace Academy (Pictured)
Reed was a known commodity to many college programs coming into the travel season, but his blow up has been tremendous since April and May. His consistently good play with AC Georgia throughout the Travel Season as well as during the scholastic period with Pace Academy caused his stock to explode, and he's found himself in the national recruiting conversation. With high major offers from Xavier, BC, and Oklahoma State in hand coming into the spring, he added offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Arkansas, Georgia, Northwestern, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Butler, & Cincinnati among others.
Anthony Arrington, Core4/Galloway School
After coming into the travel season with a couple of Division I offers, Arrington's ascension really started with the scholastic period in June with Galloway School. A lot of programs came to love his ability to do a little bit of everything combined with his activity level and versatility. During June, he added offers from Mercer, Eastern Michigan, Wofford, and Jacksonville State to add to previous offers from Cal State Bakersfield and Kennesaw State.
Sami Pissis, Game Elite/Middle Georgia Prep
After a standout senior year a Trinity Christian, Pissis opted for the Prep School route, and that decision with his play during the travel season has benefitted him greatly so far. He took off with his spectacular play in July, adding offers from McNeese State, Mercer, Wichita State, New Mexico State, UNC Asheville, & Southern Illinois. He was a standout performer at multiple RYZE Hoops events during the spring and should continue to draw more Division I interest.
Delrecco Gillespie, Game Elite/East Coweta
Once college coaches had the ability to hit the road and see players in the 2022 class, Gillespie started racking up offers. There is not a ton of size in Georgia's 2022 class, but he provides a great frontcourt presence in the class and has a great skill level to match. He added offers from Kennesaw State, Alabama State, UNC Wilmington, and North Carolina A&T during the June scholastic period and kept trending upwards in July, adding more offers from Hofstra, Kent State, Western Michigan, Appalachian State, and Murray State.
Kami Young, Georgia Legacy/Pebblebrook
Young really burst onto Division I radars in June with Pebblebrook and continued his rise during the July live periods with Georgia Legacy. He's a part of Georgia's deep 2022 guard class and made his way up a lot of depth charts over the past couple of months. In July, he's added offers from Mercer, IUPUI, Southern, and North Carolina A&T. He should be a name that continues to trend upward.
