Wheeler TOC Holiday Classic Top Performers Pt. 1


Isaiah Collier, Wheeler (Pictured)


The Wheeler offense ran like a well-oiled machine in two wins over Fayette County and Buford, and Collier was a big reason for that success, making all the right plays and reads over those wins. His offensive game continues to make further strides and he's a true all-around threat. He operates very well in ball screens and can make the defense pay no matter how they choose to play it. Overall, he is one of, if not the, most gifted offensive talent that we have in Georgia.


Anthony Arrington, Galloway School


What more can we say about Arrington that we have not already said? He brings it every time and never ceases to impress. He always plays with a great motor on both ends of the floor and he's scoring the ball from all three levels of the floor better than ever. If he is getting to his spots and getting good looks, he can fill up the scoresheet in a hurry. He also always seems to be in double figures in rebounding, which he did again in two games at TOC. He will make a college coaching staff very happy.


Kaleb Banks, Fayette County


Fayette County had a big bounce-back by beating Cumberland Christian after losing to Wheeler in the opening game on Monday. The Indiana signee was productive as he always is in both of those games, but very impressive in the win, going over the 30-point mark with double figures in rebounding. He's a walking double-double and is always one of the most productive players in the state, and he showed why at TOC.


Jaylon Taylor, Buford


Taylor remains one of the more intriguing unsigned seniors that we have in the Peach. He's got great size and length on the wing and showed his high level athleticism with some highlight reel finishes above the rim. He also showed his value on the defensive side of the floor, defending multiple positions and providing some rim protection with high-flying blocks. Down the stretch of the season, he should be one of the more popular unsigned players for college programs.


Antoine Lorick, Cross Creek


Lorick popped onto our radar at the TOC Holiday Classic in 2020, and he showed out again in 2021 with a win over Archer, scoring 21 points. At 6-foot-7, he's a great athlete who's game is developing at a good rate. The Razorbacks leaned on him in crucial spots of that win and he responded well, getting timely buckets and contributing defensively and on the glass. He's one of the standout players out in Augusta.
