RYZE Hoops Showcase I Top Performers Pt. 1
Tristan Gilmore, Hawks Elite
Gilmore was a huge reason for Hawks Elite winning one of the 17U divisions this weekend. He's very versatile at a long 6-foot-5 and can guard multiple spots on the defensive end of the floor. Offensively, he was very tough to contain on the offensive glass and he showed the ability to finish with authority above the rim. He also stepped out and knocked down shots in the midrange and from three. He plays with a high motor & with his physical tools, could be a sleeper in Alabama.
Bryce Dawson, Tri-City Elite
Dawson is another guy in the Peach with serious sleeper potential. He's a long, athletic 6-foot-5 wing that has the ability to guard multiple spots on the defensive side and score from multiple levels on the offensive end. He shot the ball well consistently from three and put up some big numbers doing so, averaging 20 points per game in the 16u division. He could be one to watch for in East Alabama in the coming months.
Kaleb Gallman, Atlanta Timberwolves
Gallman was half of the Timberwolves' big 1-2 punch and finds himself on our top performers for the second time this spring, this time averaging over 17 points per game on the weekend and connecting on 15 threes in five games. He is starting to make his mark as one of the best shooters in Georgia's 2025 class and has a quick trigger on his shot. He combines that with solid athleticism and toughness and the ability to attack closeouts and get to the rim.
CJ Harper, TSF EYBL 2026
Harper is going to be a good one in the Peach moving forward. He's a smooth lefty that can play both spots in the backcourt and showed the ability to be electric in transition. He can finish at a high level getting to the basket and make plays off the dribble both scoring and distributing the ball. He's definitely a name to remember moving forward in Georgia's 2026 class.
Anderson Lee, Upward Stars Carolinas
Lee was a huge standout on Championship Sunday, with productive games against very good competition. He put up a 30-point effort in the semifinals against TSF and then 17 in the championship against AC Georgia. He's tough as nails and very difficult to contain off the dribble. He consistently finishes around the rim or draws contact and gets to the line. He also showed the ability to knock down perimeter jumpers. One to watch for in NC.
Parker Hawkins, Pink Panthers
Hawkins was one of the best scorers in the 17u division this weekend, going over the 20-point mark three times, averaging 22 points per game on the weekend. He shot the ball well from the perimeter and was very tough to stay in front of off the dribble, consistently drawing contact and getting to the free throw line. He was one of the more impressive scorers overall in the field.
Trey Pittman, Team Grind
Pittman is going to be a name to keep track of moving forward in Alabama. He was one of the best players in our younger divisions, showing the ability to be dynamic off the dribble and attack the rim. He made some very impressive plays and scored the ball from every level of the floor, finishing the weekend averaging over 20 points per game and helping lead Team Grind to a championship in the 13U division.
Ty Cobb, STARS Basketball Club UA Future
Cobb did a number of good things for STARS Basketball Club, helping lead them to a 14U championship. He really stood out as a finisher, consistently using his size and athletic ability to finish around the rim through contact. He was in double figures in four out of five games for a very well balanced STARS squad that was clicking on all cylinders this weekend, averaging over 14 points per game.
