Ryze Live Showcase 17U Top Performers PT. 1



Dylan Wolle, Georgia Legacy (Pictured)


The top three-point shooter in the 17U Platinum division, Wolle came up with huge shots all weekend. Whenever the Legacy needed a bucket, he was reliable in getting one. He averaged over 20 points per game and over five three-balls per game for the weekend. When he's in rhythm with his feet set, he's a deadly shot-maker. He also attacks close-outs well and can make pull ups off the dribble or get into the paint and make jumpers in traffic.


Josh Fulton, AC Georgia


There weren't many players that were more consistent over the course of the weekend than Fulton. He shot the ball well every time out and was able to also finish plays at and above the rim. He's always incredibly reliable on both ends of the floor and always performs on the RYZE stage. He averaged over 18 points per game on the weekend and knocked down three triples per game.


Simeon Cottle, BANG Up


Cottle was a top performer back at the RYZE Tip Off Classic in March and he finds himself a top performer again this weekend. He's so good off the dribble, creating for himself and teammates. He has a lightning quick first step and seemingly can always beat primary defenders off the bounce and make good reads to either score it himself or create opportunities for teammates. He also shoots the ball well from three, which makes things even easier for him to create off the dribble.


Xavier Thornton, Carolina Pressure


Not many guys were better scoring the ball off the dribble and attacking the rim than Thornton. The 6-foot-3 combo guard was able to use a variety of moves to get by defenders and get into the paint and score the ball. He has a really strong build that helps with getting penetration and finishing with contact around the rim. He also has a knack for not over-penetrating and uses mid-range pull up jumpers to his advantage.


MJ Russell, Georgia Stars


Russell is a very good athlete and a great two-way player that has a good skill level on the offensive end and can pressure the ball and guard on the defensive side. He showed the ability to score the ball from every level, using his athleticism to get to the rim and score while also being able to knock down shots from the perimeter. He also made some electrifyingly athletic finishes above the rim and was one of the best athletes in the field.
