Lemon Street Classic Top Performers Pt. 2
Albert Wilson, North Cobb Christian
Wilson helped lead NCCS to three wins and a bracket championship. He's a very unique player as an inside-out player who can hurt opponents in multiple ways. He scores the ball well from every level of the floor and really excels facing up in the mid-post and taking bigger defenders off the bounce. He has loads of toughness, defends multiple spots, and rebounds very well.
Trent Hinkle, Louisville Western (KY)
Western won a bracket at Lemon Street, and Hinkle was the engine that made them go in three wins. He's tough as nails and a great leader. However, his production was consistent in every game and whenever Western needed a bucket or a play made down the stretch of a game, he was the guy that stepped up and did it. He's exactly the type of player you hate to go up against.
Christian Anderson Jr., Lovett
Anderson is always productive. And he was just that at Lemon Street, making ball screen reads and converting on shots from the perimeter as well as finding teammates. However, another place where he really shows up does not appear in the box score. Defenses key on him so much, that it opens the floor a ton and creates opportunities for his teammates to make plays.
Sam Shoptaw, Lowndes
Shoptaw was a big piece in a near Lowndes comeback against St. Pius X. He's one of Georgia's notable guards in the 2025 class and should continue to be a productive floor general throughout his career. He has the ability to make reads from the point and his game should continue to blossom. He will be one of the names you hear in South Georgia over the next two-plus years.
David Thomas, Eagles Landing
Watching Thomas on Day Two, we tweeted that Thomas signing with Mercer is one of the southeast's biggest recruiting wins for the Bears. He has such a good understanding on the offensive end and his knack for scoring and making plays should see him on the floor playing good minutes right away in Macon. He constantly goes over the 20-point mark and Lemon Street Classic was no different.
JayQuan Nelson, Alexander
Nelson is another player that is wired to score. He's a true three level scorer and has natural instincts to put the ball in the basket. He shot the ball well from three and used his savvy off the dribble to consistently get to the line and convert. We've seen him put up some big scoring numbers and he will be a key piece if the Cougars are going to make noise in region play and in the postseason.
Bryson Cokley, Christ School (NC)
The Wake Forest commit showed why he was recruited at such a high level. He has great size and length on the wing at 6-foot-6 and has all the measureables and athleticism that you'd see from a Power Six recruit. He stood out by the way he shot the ball from three and showed that he cannot be left alone or else he will make you pay with his ability to hit shots both off the catch and off the dribble.
