Anthony Arrington (Pictured), galloway school
Arrington is already very highly regarded in Georgia’s 2022 class, but we still feel like he is undervalued in terms of recruitment and what he brings to the table. He currently holds a couple of Division I offers, but that will change quickly. A true combo guard with solid size, Arrington is very well-rounded and has improved as a perimeter scorer over the past year. However, where he really shines is in his relentless motor and effort on both sides of the floor. That aspect of his game is a truly what sets him apart from other guards in the class.
AJ Barnes, eagles landing
Barnes is next up in a long line of south side wings with a toughness and an alpha dog mentality that is so appealing and fun to watch. The 6-foot-5 guard/wing is constantly in attack mode and is always looking to get to the rim, where he can finish with a high level of athleticism and creativity. He’s also good off the bounce, pulling up for shots in the midrange or being a willing passer and finding teammates for open shots. Players with his level of size, athleticism, and versatility are a rare find, so college coaches will definitely want to keep him on their radars.
Jalal McKie, westlake
The Westlake wing really came on strong at the end of the high school season. At a strongly-built 6-foot-5 he can be a natural matchup problem and has the physical tools and strength that you like to see out of a young wing. Those physical tools come with a really diverse skill set that can get it done inside and out. He’s a high level finisher in the paint, and he is very crafty with the ball in his hands to get his shot off and finish. He also makes shots from the perimeter and can truly beat a defense from anywhere on the floor.
Robert Dix, south cobb
Dix was apart of a really good South Cobb run in the first two months of 2021. He showed some really bright spots during the high school season and is one of the better athletes in Georgia’s 2022 class. He uses that athleticism to his advantage, getting into the paint and to the rim where he can finish at a high level. At 6-foot-6 he also has the ability to be a very versatile defender and also hits the glass at a high level. As his perimeter skillset and shot continues to develop, he will become a very attractive prospect for Division I coaches.
Aidan Hadaway, lafayette
The 6-foot-7 lefty hybrid forward from LaFayette will be a popular name among college staffs this summer. Last summer, he put up big numbers playing up at the 17U level, and this spring and summer will only be better. He’s extended his range and his ability to put the ball on the floor, making him a more dangerous perimeter scorer. He also plays with a high motor and hits the glass hard. It seems like every time out he produces at a high level, which will be popular among college coaches.
