Georgia 2023 Travel Season Stock Risers




Kelvin Hunter, Chapel Hill (Pictured)


Hunter's size and skill level will make him a very attractive prospect this spring and summer. At a long 6-foot-8, he has the ability to be a big factor on both ends of the floor. However, what could really set him apart is his ability to stretch the floor and knock down shots from the perimeter. As he continues to mature physically and further develop his skill set, he could become a very popular name in Georgia's 2023 class.


Gora Niang, Cumberland Christian


I loved what I saw from Niang during the high school season. In a time where it seems to be really hard to find guys who have great size and athleticism while playing with a ton of motor, he fits the bill perfectly. He is absolutely relentless on the glass, stays aggressive on both ends of the floor, and has a skill set that is consistently improving on the offensive end. Look for him to set himself apart from other bigs in the class this spring and summer.


Frankquon Sherman, Lincoln County


Lincoln County has had some big, athletic players in the past, and Sherman is the next in line. The lefty wing has great size at 6-foot-6 and is very shifty with the ball in his hands. He can get to the rim, but he can also beat you on the perimeter by knocking down shots. With a lot of people in the Atlanta area not being able to see kids from outside the metro, Sherman will get a lot of the "Who is that guy?" talk this travel season.


David Thomas, Eagles Landing


Our staff has absolutely raved about Thomas during the high school season. We understand that he is currently one of the highest regarded players in the 2023 class in the Peach. However, we feel like he can make a considerable leap and start getting attention from high level collegiate programs during the travel season. He just has an instinctual ability for scoring the ball and he could see some big performances and big scoring totals during the travel season.


Amon McDowell, McDonough


McDowell was a big part of McDonough's run through the state tournament, and he could continue his momentum into the travel season. He has great size and physical tools and has a knack for scoring the ball. He's very adept at getting to the rim and into the paint, where he can be crafty with his footwork and finish with either hand. While he's still not a name that a lot of people know, I feel like that could change here in the coming months.
