RYZE Hoops Showcase I Top Performers Pt. 3
Solomon Bratton, AC Georgia
Bratton is going to be a name to remember moving forward. His size in the 14U division is very apparent at a long 6-foot-7, but his physical abilities at that size are also very impressive. He made some jaw-dropping plays with incredible footwork and finishes above the rim that you wouldn't normally see at the 14U level. As he continues to develop his game, he could be a very notable player moving forward.
Caden Jackson, AC Georgia
Jackson was a very dynamic scorer for AC Georgia over the weekend, going for 20+ points in every game and averaging over 22 points per game on the weekend. While he showed that he can score in a variety of different ways, he really made his mark as a perimeter shot maker, connecting on 11 threes in three games. He also showed his ability to put the ball on the floor and get to his spots for scoring opportunities.
Brandon Battle, Atlanta Xpress Select
Battle was one of the best shooters and scorers in the field, averaging close to 23 points per game on the weekend and connecting on over 4 threes per game. He went for 24 or more points in three of four games and showed that he is a name to write down for Georgia's 2026 class. He also showed the ability to get to the mid-range and connect on jumpers as well as get all the way to the rim.
Wyatt Thomason, SEBA Warriors 2026
Thomason was a standout at our Tip Off Classic a few weeks back, and he was very good again at Showcase I, going for over 20 points in two of three games. He plays both spots in the backcourt and plays the role of both scorer and facilitator very well. He has good size in the backcourt and plays with savvy and toughness. He's a big part of this team's success this spring.
Adrian Avery, Georgia Elite
Avery showed that he is a guy that college programs needing a guards in their 2023 classes should check out. He averaged 19 points per game on the weekend, spending time at both backcourt spots and scoring the ball from every level of the floor. He's a very capable jump shooter with the ability to connect on threes as well as very good one & two-dribble pull ups.
Frank Jackson, Atlanta Kings
Jackson had a huge day on Sunday, helping lead Atlanta Kings to the 15U championship game. He averaged over 17 points per game on the weekend but had performances of 22, 21, and 18 on Sunday during bracket play, shooting the ball very well and making 8 threes in those three games. He's a very high level athlete with good size and excelled getting to the rim and using his ability to get off the floor to finish at a high level. He's going to be a name to write down for the future.
Grant Robich, Wood Elite
Robich has been a very solid standout this spring for the 15U Wood Elite squad and scored in double figures in four of five games en route to a championship. He saved his biggest game for last, going for 20 points in a very hard-fought championship game. He plays with high energy on both ends of the floor and is a good playmaker off the dribble. He consistently gets to his spots and has a very good midrange game.
Laithen Mitchell, TNG Black
Mitchell was another very good scorer and perimeter shooter in the 17U division. He averaged over 17 points per game and converted on over 4 threes per game. He showed that he can make shots both off the catch and off the dribble and when closed out on, can put the ball on the floor and attack the basket or pull up in the midrange for buckets.
