Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- In an excellent final game of the Future150 Main Event Atlanta tournament, God's Property (GA) won an overtime thriller against the Knoxville Free Agents (TN) 103-100 to win a 17U championship! Ken Stanciel was the star, scoring 28 points for the winning squad. C.J. Gettelfinger scored 20 points in a losing effort. Who shined in the 17U division? Find out below.
C.J. Gettelfinger, 2019 PG, Knoxville Free Agents (TN): With a father who walked-on at Kentucky, it's no surprise that the 6'3" floor general is a high IQ prospect who is highly skilled. He absolutely stole the show in Atlanta due to his playmaking and scoring ability. He's got some low-major schools sniffing around right now, and we fully expect his stock to take off this AAU season.
Dal'Mont Gourdine, 2019 PF, Charleston Playmakers (SC): The 6'6" manchild played up an age group this weekend, and it was no problem for him. He's in fantastic shape right now, making him more mobile and athletic. He's a beast on the glass and finishes plays around the rim with ease due to his physical strength and soft touch. Low-major schools should be tracking the North Charleston product.
Johnathon Clausi, 2018 PG, Club 51 (TN): The 6'4" combo guard was a headache for defenses all weekend. He's deceptively quick with the ball in his hands, and he's hard to stop around the rim due to his size and strength. The Father Ryan (TN) product also showed that he can knock down perimeter shots as well.
Ky-mani Williams, 2018 PF/C, Georgia Achievers Academy (GA): The powerful 6'4" post was a force on the interior all weekend for his squad. In multiple viewings, we watched him tally double-digit point performances while contributing heavily on the glass as well. While the majority of his points come on the inside, he also showed nice touch on a fairly consistent mid-range jumper.
Malik Smith, 2018 PG, Atlanta Select Platinum (GA): The strong 5'11" floor general was a scoring machine over the weekend, getting baskets with ease. He's especially impressive when driving to the rim, where he used his athleticism and body control to finish against and around the defense.
Jordan West, 2018 SG, AUSA-Rampage (AL) - West is a talented shooter with a nice release. He will need to improve his lateral quickness, which in turn will help him with his defense. That being said, he has decent height and a solid frame, making him a good rebounder for his position.
Rasaahn Lewis, 2018 PG, TNBA South Elite (FL) - The son of former NFL great Ray Lewis, Rasaahn is blazing his own path. A 5-foot-10 point guard with fantastic athleticism and ball-handling, Lewis plays with his head on a swivel and tries to get his teammates involved whenever possible. With low-majors already courting him, it's going to be interesting to see how his recruitment is going to play out.
Jordan Bragg, 2019 PG, Elite Playmakers (GA) - A cat-quick point guard, he's creative off the dribble and keeps his head up the whole time. Bragg mixed scoring and distributing on Saturday and was a nightmare to deal with thanks to his ability to create as well as put points up on all three levels.
Dezmin McClain, 2018 PG, Nashville Stars (TN) – McClain is a lightning quick guard that can blow by his defender and get to the rim in a heartbeat. He has a solid stroke on his jumper and is a feisty on-ball defender. Standing at 5’10”, McClain is one of those smaller point guard’s that you love to have on the floor because of their speed in the open floor and intensity on defense.
JT Mumber, 2018 PF, NWGA Select (GA) – Filling up the stat sheet in the scoring and rebounding column all throughout the weekend, Mumber was a handful to deal with down low. He has decent size standing just over 6’7”, but his motor, IQ, and overall fundamental style of play is what was impressive to watch.
Ken Stanciel, 2018 G/F, God’s Property (GA) – One of the most athletic and fun players to watch in the 17U divison was Stanciel. He is a high motored, energetic wing that can score from all three levels and was a big time vocal leader for his team whether he was on the court or sitting on the bench. He had a huge performance in the gold division championship game leading his squad to a win.
Terrence Taylor, 2018 SG, Reacher Higher Kings (GA) - Taylor has good size for a guard at 6'2" was made a living slashing his way to the rim and getting to the free throw line. He's capable of knocking down the pull-up mid-range jumper, and showed the ability to play both guard spots with his solid court vision and passing abilities. Solid weekend for Taylor who showcased a fundamental slashing game for a two guard.
