Georgia 2024 Travel Season Stock Risers
Lue is one of the best players in Georgia's 2024 class, and he proved that by adding a state championship to his resume in a game he played very well in. With his combination of size, versatility, and athleticism, he will certainly be on a ton of watch lists this spring and summer. He currently holds offers from Chattanooga, Charleston, Jacksonville State, Missouri State, NC A&T, Kennesaw State, and Western Carolina, but look for that offer list to grow and don't be surprised if some high major programs jump on.
We've been preaching about how the physical, athletic 6-foot-4 wing was one of the major hidden gems in Georgia coming into the high school season. And he had a season worthy of being on this list for the spring and summer. When college coaches get the chance to see him, his list of offers is going to explode. Right now, he is one of the most underrecruited players in the south, but expect that to change very soon.
All season long, we've talked to college coaches and some of the most used words when looking for players are "high energy", "rebounding", and "versatile" and Richards checks all of those boxes. We think he is the state's best rebounder regardless of class and his style of relentlessness should catch they eye of college coaches this spring and summer.
Williams led Athens Academy to a good season this winter. Being outside of Atlanta, sometimes you can forget about certain players during the season, but we've seen what he's capable of and think that he could be one of the floor generals that could put his mark on the travel season. He scores it well, can make plays for others off the bounce, takes care of the ball, and defends hard. He's going to be a guy to watch this spring.
Iloh helped lead McIntosh to a region title this season and his combination of size and strength make him a very good fit for what college coaches are looking for. Physically, he's ready to play at the next level right away, which is important in the modern day of the transfer portal. He's a great rebounder and can score the ball well on the interior. He's one of the more underrated bigs in the state in 2024. He's starting to earn big offers on the gridiron, and maybe the hardwood could follow.
We really liked what we saw from White as a playmaker this season. While he doesn't stand out right away physically, he has a very good skill set on the perimeter and can beat you in a number of ways. He passes the ball extremely well and is a very good playmaker off the dribble. He can also shoot the ball well, hit the glass from the backcourt, and is a crafty defender that can create deflections. That skill level will do well from him this spring and he should catch his fair share of eyes.
