2019 On The Radar Tip-Off Classic Standouts
2019 On The Radar Hoops Tip Off Classic Standouts
2020 G JT Thor (Norcross) – JT Thor was on full display at the On The Radar Tip-Off Classic. He showed why he is easily one of the best prospects in the 2020 class. He can shoot the 3 ball as well as play above the rim, I was really surprised at how good he was. After watching him and his teammates, Norcross has a chance to win the 2020 Georgia State Championship.
2021 PG Andrew McConnell (Lanier) – Everybody in the gym was super impressed by junior guard Andrew McConnell, he was in full control of the tempo and didn’t seem to be rattled by the competition. McConnell is a very crafty guard that slithers his way around the basketball, scoring at will. He finished the game with 14pt but his impact on the game was much bigger. Keep an eye out for the 2021 guard from Lanier.
Kennesaw State bound 2020 G Chris Youngblood (East Coweta) – One of the nation’s most underrated prospects, Chris Youngblood, had himself a game at the 2019 On The Radar Hoops Tip Off Classic this past weekend. The future Kennesaw State Owl put up a game high 27 points in their matchup with Lanier High School. Youngblood is able to score in a variety of ways. At 6-foot-3, he is able to finish through traffic when attacking the rim, can connect on his long and mid-range jumpers, and runs the floor fairly well. He finished with 18 points the night before during the Hawks Naismith Tip Off Classic.
2021 PG Danny Stubbs Jr. (Pebblebrook) – Junior point guard Danny Stubbs Jr. put up 19 points while dishing out a few assists in Pebblebrook’s win over Southwest Dekalb High School. Stubbs is a 6-foot-1 point guard who plays with pure toughness on both ends of the floor, a reliable shot maker from anywhere on the floor, and can get into his opponent defensively. Stubbs Jr. plays with great confidence when on the floor and is able to make the correct plays for his team. A 2021 prospect that deserves much more attention as the season goes along. Schools like Elon, James Madison, UAB, and others have offered up to this point.
Thought 21’ PG Danny Stubbs Jr. (@boogiedowndanny) played extremely well today for Pebblebrook (GA). A reliable shot making guard who plays with confidence and pure toughness. Deserves much attention. Elon, Georgia State, UAB, James Madison, and others have offered @PBrookhoops. pic.twitter.com/k00R4t36WS

Kennesaw State bound 2020 SG Brandon Stroud (East Coweta) – Another 2020 prospect out of the state of Georgia who was under recruited or under the radar. Brandon Stroud, who is also headed to Kennesaw State with his current teammate Chris Youngblood, finished with 22 points while snagging down 14 rebounds. The 6-foot-5 two-guard/wing showed his high versatility for East Coweta throughout their matchup. Stroud is effective around the glass, uses his length and long arms to easily get to the rim, and can defend multiple positions. The Owls have them an elite package in Youngblood and Stroud coming in next season.
2022 F/G Robert Dix (South Cobb) – Everybody came to see Zocko Littleton (the future) versus (the present) Sharife Cooper but Robert Dix stole the show. The 6’5 sophomore led S. Cobb with 21pts. Robert has the body and tools to be a top prospect out of Georgia if he continues to progress. We will keep an eye on him to see how he progresses throughout the year.
2021 SG Cam McDowell (McEachern) – 2021 shooting guard, Cam McDowell, is a prospect college coaches need to keep an eye on throughout the high school season and beyond. The junior two-guard finished with a team and game high 32 points in a win for McEachern at the On The Radar Tip Off Classic. Cam is a 6-foot-5 plus two-guard that plays with a high motor, holds good athleticism and length, has the ability to get to the rim, and can space the floor with his outside shooting. McDowell should certainly catch a few eyes while playing on a national team and playing a national schedule with McEachern High School.
Auburn bound 2020 PG Sharife Cooper (McEachern) – Sharife Cooper stands out once again for the second consecutive weekend and this time at the 2019 On The Radar Tip Off Classic. The future Auburn Tiger struggled a bit with South Cobb’s pressure defense in the first half but got himself together after halftime and finished the night with 30 points. Cooper continues to prove he has the ability to break down his defender, get to the rim with ease, and finish through traffic with his elite layup package. The 6-foot-1 point guard is clearly unstoppable at the high school level and has shown that throughout his entire high school career with McEachern. Sharife is now averaging 33.5 points per game through two games this season.
