Notable Unsigned Bigs in Georgia Pt. 1
Braden Pierce, River Ridge (pictured)
At 6-foot-11, Pierce has the size and skill level that make him an attractive Division I prospect. His offensive game has come a long way during his high school career, and the foundation is there that show his ability to transition to the next level on the offensive end of the floor. Defensively, he is active and contests shots well in the paint and also has the ability to be commanding on the boards.
Mason Lockhart, Columbia
Lockhart has put together a great senior season at Columbia, and his play on the interior has been a big reason for the Eagles' success. At a strongly built 6-foot-7, he's a lot to handle in the paint and is a very reliable rebounder on both ends. Offensively, he has a solid skill set on the block and can step into the mid range and knock down shots reliably. His combination of size, toughness, and skill level make him a notable prospect for college coaches to keep an eye on down the stretch.
Wade Kahl, Centennial
Kahl has had a very eye opening senior season at Centennial. While we've always seen his size, length, and skill level, he seems to be more assertive and aggressive in his game this season. He's a very good athlete and his highlight reel is extensive with big time dunks. However, he also has good abilities on the offensive end with good hands, the ability to finish in the paint, and the ability to step out and knock down perimeter shots.
Eli Chol, Forsyth Central
The ceiling that Chol has is sky high, making him a good college prospect. At a long 6-foot-10, he has great mobility and skills on the perimeter. He can step out and connect on shots from the perimeter and in the midrange, and has shown the ability to put the ball on the floor as well. He runs the floor well and is a high level finisher above the rim in transition. His defensive potential is also extremely high with his size, length, and ability to block and change shots.
Delva Chedlet, Cumberland Christian
Chedlet has performed very well this season for Cumberland Christian. While his offensive game is still raw, he shows the ability to affect the game on both ends and be active and productive. He's most notable on the defensive side of the floor where he is a great rim protector and rebounder. He's also active on the offensive glass and can catch and finish above the rim in the paint. He has a high ceiling and will be even more productive as his offensive game continues to develop.
