RYZE Live Showcase III Top Performers Pt. 3
Zundra Jackson, SEBA FCI Warriors
Jackson is one of the bigger sleepers in Georgia's 2024 class. He's played up at the 17U level and been very productive all spring, and that was no different at Live Showcase III. He averaged over 23 points per game and scores the ball in every way possible. He shoots it well from three and in the midrange, can create for himself off the dribble, finishes athletically with both hands around the rim.
Jadon Yeh, BCB
There's so much to like about Yeh's game. He has all the qualities that you like to see from a lead guard: he's got solid size, good athletic ability, makes plays off the dribble, and plays with a ton of motor. He's got a high understanding of the game, plays with savvy, and can make all the right reads. He's one of Georgia's more solid lead guards in 2023.
Larry Johnson, WACG
Johnson was one of the best point guards in the field at Live Showcase III. He's got great size for the position and is a very good playmaker off the dribble. He's got explosive athletic abilities that allow him to consistently beat defenders off the dribble and make electric finishes at the rim. He plays with a smoothness that will make him a name to watch out for in the southeast in 2024 for high level Division I programs.
Delani Hammonds, Team Synergy
Hammonds playmaking ability always seems to show on our stage. He's got great quickness and is incredibly hard to stay in front of, and he always finds his way into the paint and to the rim. He was a big reason for Team Synergy's success over the weekend, averaging 19 points per game and running the show very well.
Malachi Harris, NME National
Harris has enjoyed a very good spring with NME. This weekend added to that good play, with him finishing the weekend averaging over 17 points per game. He's a big, physical guard that has shown the ability to score the ball from all levels of the floor. He shoots a true, high-rising jumper that he knocks down consistently, and he can finish with contact in the paint and around the rim.
Nick Dickey, Georgia Seminoles
Dickey was one of the top scorers overall this weekend, averaging over 23 points per game. He got a lot of his offense getting to the rim and was particularly good finishing with both hands around the rim and being very effective in transition. He also proved that he can be a threat from three, knocking down 4 triples in the championship game, where he scored 32 points.
Jackson Crawford, GATA Academy
Crawford has caught our staff's eyes over the course of the last two events. He's a steady and poised floor general that can be a playmaker, make reads, and set the table for teammates. He always seems to take care of the ball and make the right plays at the right time. He can shoot the ball well from three and in the midrange when needed. Overall, he's a very well rounded lead guard.
Josiah McCurry, BCB 15U
McCurry played a big role in BCB's championship weekend, averaging in double figures scoring the ball, rebounding well, and holding down the paint. He was a very effective finisher in the paint and was able to hit the offensive glass for putbacks. His size was a matchup problem for opposing teams and he was one of the better interior players overall on the weekend.
