Incubator for tomorrow’s media stars… TODAY!

Saturday at Battle in the Peach

The Kell/Wheeler game was worth the price of admission! The energy from the bench, to the court, to engaged fans, made for an entertaining matchup. 

2024 6’2” CG CJ Brown was the show for Kell. The South Florida signee was electric all game, including the play of the weekend, an explosive dunk over 6’8” Arkansas State signee Josh Hill. Brown was more than the multiple explosive dunks he had throughout the game, knocking down a few mid-range and three balls, while making tough finishes in traffic.

Shiloh 2025 6’9” F Tylis Jordan is making a case for national top50 status. I have seen a consistency in him which warrants that acclaim. Jordan displays a wide variety of tools, including his ability to make the deep ball, dribble pull-ups, flash jumpers and improving attacking close outs to finish.

Jordan’s teammate, 2024 6’4” WG Julien Cole is growing on me every time he steps on the court. No worries in motor, he’s got that, he’s also is tough on rips to the basket, rebounds both ends, uses his length to get into passing lanes and a shot maker. Atlantic 10, Conference USA and the like should make a stop in Snellville.

2026 5’11” PG Jacob Zhu (next Level Academy) is having a very good season. His shot making ability has schools like Georgia Tech and Auburn (today) on the offer list. He is a speedy guard, always in motion and not afraid of the moment. He followed up his 30point Friday night performance with another stellar game Saturday night. I’m also told he’s a recent addition to the Chinese National team.

We literally can write about 4-5 Prolific players every time they step on the court, but in this post, there’ll be two. They had two blowout wins but stayed entertaining. Soon to be committed guard Derrion Reid (pictured) is a Swiss Army knife, having a tool for every occasion. He has really improved his long-range game, hitting multiple trey’s tonight, rebounds both ends, finishes through contact, good passing feel and a leader on the floor, all of which is why he’s a top15 player in the class. Reid will be deciding from UGA, Florida State and Alabama.

2025 6’8” SF AJ Dybantsa is showing another side to his game. A top scorer in the EYBL, he’s showing a more complete side to his game, defending small guards at length, creating for others, and leading his teammates. The ability to play with talent is a separator for elite level talent and still standout…he’s got that.

In an earlier game, Marshall signee and West Forsyth (GA) senior Will Moore showed impressive range and athleticism, great pickup for the Thundering Herd. I can’t sign out without mentioning Riverwood’s Karris Bilal’s 30 point performance in loss to Shiloh. The Vanderbilt signee made tough shots all game from all areas of the the floor.
