RYZE Spring Showdown 16U/15U Top Performers Pt. 2



Chane Bynum, Atlanta Xpress UAA (Pictured)

Bynum will be a prospect that we hear a lot of in the 2025 class in Georgia. His ceiling is sky high at a long and mobile 6-foot-8 with perimeter skills on the wing and a knock down jumper. He's a walking matchup problem and as he develops he should continue to gain more and more accolades and attention from college programs. He has tremendous potential as a versatile two-way player and fits the modern style of basketball to a tee.


Devin Barksdale, We Play United

Barksdale came out of the gates firing on all cylinders on Saturday, with two huge performances, including a 29-point effort that saw him knock down six threes. He also showed his well-roundedness by having a 23-point game on Saturday afternoon, putting the ball on the floor and getting to the rim at will. He ended the weekend near the top of the scoring leaders in the 16u division at over 18 points per game.


Connor Teasley, Georgia Canes 2025

Teasley showed a very diverse set of skills on the offensive end of the floor and was extremely productive all weekend creating offense off the dribble for himself as well as teammates. He was able to beat his defenders consistently and make the right reads in the right situations. He also showed the ability to connect on shots from three. Overall, he finished the weekend averaging over 17 points per game.


Adrian Pigford Jr., Gwinnett Hawks

Pigford was one of the biggest matchup problems in the 16U division with his size and strength in the backcourt. He showed that he can bully smaller guards on his way to the rim and finish through contact. He was consistently able to find his way into the paint where he is a very dangerous threat to score. He averaged over 16 points per game on the weekend and was a key piece for the Gwinnett Hawks' success.


Kohl Key, Pro One Select

Key was one of the best shooters that we had in the overall field this weekend, averaging close to four three-point makes per game and knocking down 15 threes on the weekend. He also showed a craftiness off the bounce for one-dribble pull ups in the midrange or getting into the paint. He averaged 16 points per game and made 4 or more threes in three of Pro One Select's four games.


Okil Freeman Jr., Go Hard Academy

Freeman went off in his last three games of the weekend with performances of 20, 25, and 32 points and showed the ability to score the ball getting to the rim off the dribble as well as hitting shots from the perimeter. He's got good size as a guard at 6-foot-3 with the ability to play both spots in the backcourt. He's very shifty with the ball in his hands and consistently was able to get to his spots and convert. He finished second in the 16U division at over 19 points per game.
