2019 Holiday Hoopsgiving Standouts
2019 Hoopsgiving Standouts
2022 PG Bruce Thornton (Milton) – I’ve heard the buzz about Bruce Thornton but never seen him play until I watched him play against the highly touted Grayson Rams, via SUVTV, and the kid dropped 42 points in a 80 – 81 loss versus the Rams. Milton was scheduled to play Kell Longhorns at Holiday Hoopsgiving and this was an opportunity to see him in person versus another top 2022 player “Scoot Henderson”. Bruce didn’t disappoint, scoring 23 points and securing the victory. I have seen a lot of maturity in his play. I have been impressed with Bruce season thus far.
Mississippi State commit 2020 PG Deivon Smith (Grayson) – Deivon Smith helped lead Grayson to a 2-0 weekend at this year’s Holiday Hoopsgiving Event. Deivon scored 19 points and 18 points in Grayson’s games against Memphis East (TN) and Mountain Brook (AL). Smith displayed his speed in the open floor, improved offensive game, and athletic ability throughout the event. The future point guard of the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
2022 PG Zocko Littleton Jr. (South Cobb) – Littleton Jr. made his presence known during South Cobb’s lone game at the Holiday Hoopsgiving event. The sophomore combo guard scored 34 points in their win over Holy Innocents School. Zocko displayed his great shooting stroke and release knocking down a few three pointers. His quick release is very difficult to defend and he is able to spread the defense with his elite shot making skills.
2023 PG Kanaan Carlyle (Milton) – The future is bright for Milton and Mr. Carlyle. We’ve watched Kanaan play all last summer and knew the kid was special and he just continues to prove us right. Carlyle scored 28pts in the game versus Kell and made key free throws to put Milton back on top late in the game. He followed that up with a 20pts performance versus Holy Innocents, we will continue to follow Kanaan and his exciting freshman season.

2021 SG Chance Moore (Holy Innocents) – Last year at this same event, a young kid named Chance Moore burst onto the national scene and rankings. Fast-forward to a year later and Chance Moore is now one of the top prospects in his class. Moore put on a show to begin this year’s event, posting a smooth 30 points against South Cobb. Length, athleticism, and scoring abilities showed throughout the entire game. A future star in the making.
Kennesaw State commit 2020 PG Kasen Jennings (Langston Hughes) – Kasen Jennings looked solid in his game against Memphis East (TN) this past weekend. The future Kennesaw State Owl has always been one of the toughest, and in my opinion, underrated guards in the state of Georgia. Jennings did not have a big game points wise, but he was very fluid converting on his jump shots, attacking the rim, and making nice passes.
2021 PG Danny Stubbs (Pebblebrook) – It has been a nice start to the season for junior point guard Danny Stubbs out of Pebblebrook High School. Stubbs averaged 19.0 points per game in Pebblebrook’s two games over the weekend. He is one of the under the radar point guards in the class of 2021 nationally and can really get things done on both ends. A reliable shot maker who can defend and plays with great toughness.
2021 PG Jacobi Wright (Legacy Early College, SC) – A name to remember for future references in the 2021 class will be Jacobi Wright. Wright is a 6-foot-3 point guard who put his skills on display during his time in Atlanta, Georgia. A positional size point guard with a solid body frame to him, holds nice strength, and proved he can knock down long-range jumpers from beyond the arc. Not a highly recruited prospect as of now, but he can certainly receive much attention as the season goes along.
