Rumble in the Peach State: Bruton’s Class of 2027 Standouts

Taj Saragba | 6’6” F | ECP Blue Devils (GA)

He has excellent size at this stage for a 7th grader, but he’s incredibly agile and skilled for a player his age. There were multiple occasions where he snagged a defensive rebound, handled the ball in transition and made plays. He has incredible athleticism already and throws down some momentum changing dunks. On the defensive side of the ball, he excels as a weak-side shot blocker and he dominates the defensive glass. Top tier player at this stage of development.

Caden Earl | 5’10” G | TSF Mack (GA)

You can see the potential coming to the forefront. Caden is an explosive scorer that can put the basketball in the hole in bunches. His ability to explode off the dribble and pull up for a jump shot is hard to contain at this stage. Once his leaping ability catches up to his first step, he could very well become a walking highlight reel.

Ethan Siggers | 5’8” G/W | Elevate Sports Academy (GA)

In my first viewing, Siggers was able to dominate the game in multiple facets. He excelled rebounding, defending, passing, scoring and as a ball-handler. One of the most complete players at the event. He led his team to the championship game and gave defenses headaches all weekend long. Very good young prospect.

King Hernandez | 5’10” G | Georgia Stars (GA)

Hernandez was a strong floor general that showed he could play at virtually any pace. If it’s a slow paced game that requires running half-court sets, he could do that and impact the game in any way that he wanted. If it’s a fast paced game, he’s just as productive and impacts the game on both sides of the floor. In my short viewing, I never saw another guard that could seriously challenge him as a ball-handler. There are a lot of tools that he possesses that should bode well for his development.
