RYZE Live Showcase III Top Performers Pt. 2
Roc Lee, We All Can Go
Lee has all the physical tools that you'd find in a high level Division I prospect with his combination of size, physicality, strength, and athleticism. What was more impressive this weekend was his skillset. He played both backcourt spots very well and showed the ability to make reads and make the right play off of them. He also shot the ball very well from three and in the midrange, showcasing three level scoring.
John McQueen, Game Elite Big Five
McQueen averaged 23 points per game on the weekend and plays all over the floor. He played every position at some point and gives loads of versatility. He started his weekend showing a rugged scoring ability in the paint and off the dribble and ended the weekend showcasing his range, making five threes in his final game. Overall, he is one of the Peach's most intriguing prospects in 2024 with his fit into the modern style of play.
Isaiah Williams, Team Synergy
Williams was one part of Team Synergy's great trio and provided some big time scoring punch all weekend. He finished the weekend averaging over 20 points per game and became a go-to guy in the big situations, including knocking down a game winning three at the buzzer in the quarterfinals. He's a physical guard that can do it with or without the ball in his hands and provides a ton of winning qualities.
JayQuan Nelson, ENG United
Nelson has been a standout at our events in the past with his natural ability to score, which was on display some more this weekend. He averaged 18 points per game on the weekend and helped lead ENG United to the 17U Gold Championship. He's very shifty off the bounce and can also beat you shooting the ball from the perimeter. He is one of NW Georgia's better scoring guards.
Jax Abernathy, Atlanta All Stars
Abernathy was a big reason why Atlanta All Stars won the 16U championship this weekend, averaging over 16 points per game on the weekend, including 23 points in the championship. He shot the ball well from three all weekend and uses his shooting ability to his advantage, beating opposing close-outs to put the ball on the floor and get to the rim. Don't let his calm demeanor fool you either, he has a ton of toughness as well.
Sam Shoptaw, Team Ga Magic
Shoptaw is going to be one of the next names that you hear from in South Georgia. The 2025 point guard showed a game beyond his years this weekend, scoring the ball at a high level and making plays for teammates consistently. He has a number of moves and ball fakes that make him very crafty when he gets into the paint and he makes great reads on secondary defenders. He's got next in South Georgia.
Elijah Mincey, Savannah Elite
Mincey is a bucket, plain and simple. He averaged over 17 points per game on the weekend and was one of the most effective players off the dribble in the entire field. He's packed with quickness and always knows how to beat defenders and create space to get his shot off. Keep this name in your back pockets down on the coast in the coming years.
