Milton Longhorn 5-Star Classic Top Performers

Avantae Parker, Gray Collegiate (SC)

The Georgia Southern commit was very impressive in a win over Sandy Creek. He's as versatile as they come at 6-foot-8 with the ability to guard any position on the floor. He also showed a wide display of skills on the offensive end, knocking down perimeter shots, slashing to the basket, finishing in the paint, and hitting the offensive glass. His versatility will benefit him a ton at the next level in Statesboro.

Amir Taylor, Grayson

The Grayson frontcourt had a terrific showing in a win over Osborne and Taylor was the biggest part of that. He was dominant on the glass on both ends and consistently found himself in spots to finish around the rim and draw contact, finishing with 18 points. He has a great skill level to go along with his size, which makes him a big standout in Georgia's sophomore class.

Trey Maxwell, North Meck (NC)

North Meck got off to a slow start, but Maxwell gave them a huge spark coming out for the second half. He scored 13 points in the third quarter, knocking down four threes, which helped his team get out to a lead, which they eventually held onto. He finished with 21 points in the win and has the size & shot making ability that should make him an attractive prospect for college programs.

Cedric Taylor, Drew Charter

Fresh off of hitting 1000 points for his career, Taylor was a standout in the opening game on Saturday against North Gwinnett, finishing with 20 points and showing why he's become a popular guy among college programs. He showed big time athleticism, finishing plays off above the rim in transition as well as the ability to knock down shots from three. Combine that with his size & versatility, and you have a guy that Division I programs needing players late might want to see.

Moses Hipps, McEachern

Hipps has the knack for making huge shots and did just that in a win over Calvary Christian (FL) on Saturday. Every time Calvary made a run, he was there to silence it with a perimeter jumper. He finished with 20 points in the win, getting his work done from behind the three point line. He's one of Georgia's best perimeter shot makers in the 2024 class.

Keshawn McPherson, Osborne

McPherson did everything he could to keep Osborne in the game against Grayson, scoring 17 points in the first half and 21 in the game. He's earned the reputation as a physical athlete who can play with toughness, but he showed that he can be a great shot maker on Saturday, connecting on shot after shot from the perimeter with the ability to create space off the bounce and hit.

Jacob Tillman, Milton

Milton was without star sophomore guard Josh Dixon on Saturday, and Tillman stepped up in a big way to help keep Milton in the game against North Meck. He was dynamic off the bounce and nobody could seem to keep him in front. He picked his spots well, getting to the rim when he could and pulling up in the midrange when he needed to, finishing with 19 points.

Micah Smith, Sandy Creek

Smith continues to show huge flashes, making eye-popping plays that get the gym buzzing. He continues to develop and get more and more versatile, and he showed more of that on Saturday, doing a little bit of everything. He knocked down perimeter shots in the pick-and-pop, but he also played well with the ball in his hands. He got his team a lot of opportunities in transition with his ability to rebound and push the ball himself, which included a huge dunk over a defender in the first half.
