Rumble in the Peach State ’24 – (Standouts Pt. 3)

Cumming, GA – Rumble in the Peach State was a highly anticipated event that lived up to the hype! There were a ton of high level prospects all the way from middle school to the high school ranks. Check out this 4 part series that goes in depth about several prospects that were on display.

Kayden Diggs | 2025 | 6’8″ Forward (NC) | Acts Elite
Diggs was a big-time asset that protected the rim and controlled the glass. He’s got very long arms and an excellent frame that could put on plenty of muscle over time. He’s very raw offensively, but with consistent development could be a strong low post threat. A lot of long-term potential. Diggs’ shot-blocking and rebounding make him a defensive anchor.

Thomas Landeck | 2026 | 6’6″ Guard/Forward (GA) | Redline Elite
Landeck has all the makings of a scholarship-level prospect. He stands around 6’6″ and has guard skills. At any point in the game, he can seamlessly move back and forth from the mid-post to the wing. He can knock down jumpers and he can create his own offense within the flow of a game. Landeck’s versatility and skill set are highly valuable.

Brennan Burns | 2026 | 6’2″ Guard (GA) | Redline Elite
Burns is a solid two-way player that makes plays consistently on both sides of the basketball. He gets the job done offensively as a knockdown shooter but he’s also a capable ball-handler that can get to his spots. Defensively, he’s much stronger than perceived and does a good job beating offensive players to their spots. Burns’ all-around game and toughness make him a key contributor.

Jake Agolli | 2026 | 6’10” Forward (GA) | Tier 2 Elite
Agolli showed a ton of promise as a long-term stretch big man. He’s got great height and a soft touch on his shot. He buried multiple shots from long-range in the matchup I viewed and showed solid footwork in the paint. If he continues to develop more explosion around the rim, he could be a late bloomer that college programs will covet. Agolli’s shooting ability and potential make him an intriguing prospect.

Jalen Brown | 2026 | 6’1″ Combo Guard (GA) | AE5
Brown is a strong-bodied combo guard that makes his mark as a primary scoring option. He’s very crafty and has an extended bag of tricks that he uses to create his own shot. Brown makes shots from long-range, has a good fadeaway jumper and is a great athlete that can throw it down in traffic. Brown’s scoring versatility and athleticism are impressive.

Kentaevion Moreland | 2026 | 6’2″ Guard (GA) | AE5
Moreland has impressive athleticism at the guard spot and impacts the game with his constant activity. He’s always a threat to throw down vicious dunks on his drives to the basket but he can venture out to the 3-point line as well to extend the floor. He’s at his best when he’s in attack mode and he routinely makes good decisions with the ball. Moreland’s explosive athleticism makes him a highlight reel waiting to happen.

Troy Smith Jr. | 2026 | 6’2″ Shooting Guard (GA) | Redline Elite
Smith is a strong shooting guard that finishes well with either hand around the rim. He also is an above-average rebounder for a guard prospect and can really create problems for opposing teams’ ball-handlers. Has a low center of gravity, plays unselfish, and makes winning plays. Smith’s physicality and defensive prowess set him apart.

Tyler Barnes | 2027 | 6’0″ Point Guard (GA) | Triangle Offense
Barnes is a fast point guard that plays with his head up at all times. When guarding Barnes, if you fall asleep, he’ll capitalize and throw a dime to any open teammates. In addition to his passing ability, he’s got a quick release on his shot and can score the ball in bunches without venturing away from running the offense. Barnes’ court vision and quickness make him a playmaker to watch.

Lonnie Porter | 2028 | 5’10” Guard (NC) | ACTs Elite
Porter is an 8th grader that didn’t miss a beat while playing up in the 17u division. He’s a big-time shot maker and shot creator. Very crafty in his approach to creating plays with his dribble. Lonnie is a player that will have an immediate impact at the high school level next year. He’s got an impressive skillset offensively. Porter’s confidence and craftiness make him a future star.
