The 2017 Elite Preview was loaded with the next wave talent in the state of Georgia. We polled our staff and coaches to determine the top overall performers from the camp. Here is the first wave of our top guys from Saturday's action at Kell High School.

Athlete supreme. Dwon Odom does things that freshmen are not supposed to be able to do. He showed that he can be proficient from both guard spots, running a team and playing off the ball and being able to score. He is a high level defender and loves to matchup against the best. He brings enthusiasm and a high motor to the table as well. It is not surprising at all to see why he is such a highly regarded player in 2020's class. - Carter Wilson
The 6-foot-7 forward was a consensus top player from the camp and earned the praise by playing with great physicality. He rebounded hard and great on the block. Ezipke showed great footwork and was probably the best overall big in camp when it came to post production. He’s naturally strong and has a college-level frame. Ezipke has a great touch and a really good passer for a big. Don’t be surprised to see him become one of the most recruited big men from the state of Georgia this spring. - Justin Young
We’ve long professed his potential as a high-level college prospect and everything time out, the 6-foot-6 multi-positional prospect gets better and better. Boston can play the point. He is a good scorer and a good shooter. For a freshman, he was vocal and confident in his communication with his teammates. There are a lot of natural tools to get better at and his feel will allow for quick growth as a high-level prospect. Boston was a consensus top performer and prospect from the camp. - Justin Young
From the opening tip of the first game, Jenkins made his presence known by knocking down shots from the perimeter. The 2018 Creekview PG was one of the top floor generals in camp, operating well out of ball screens and not backing down from any matchup. He opened a lot of eyes and put his name into the 2018 lead guard conversation. He established his name as one that LM & MM programs will want to track all spring and summer. - Carter Wilson
Every year at the Elite Preview, there is a player who seems to have taken their game to the next level. This year’s player is Muhammad. The 6-foot-9 post has made a big jump in his development from last year’s Georgia Cup. He likes to shoot jumpers out to the three point line and played well in the open floor as a ball-handling big man. When engaged in the low blocks, Muhammad showed some craftiness on the offensive end of the floor. Blessed with a big-time basketball frame, Muhammad should be player that sees his recruitment take off after a strong showing on the travel circuit. - Justin Young
