Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Georgia State Warriors featured an extremely young, but supremely talented squad that wore down teams with it's tough-nosed defense. Offensively they were led by guard Brandon Rechsteiner and forward Jackson Head, who takes home the 13U division MVP, as they defeated Newnan Elite in the 13U championship game. 

Future150 Main Event Atlanta All Tournament Team: 

Milton Gibbs, Georgia United Showtime (GA)
Jackson Head (MVP), Georgia State Warriors
Coan Handy, Newnan Elite (GA)
Brandon Rechsteiner, Georgia State Warriors (GA)
Tyler Husband, Georgia Bison (GA)

 

Future150 Main Event Atlanta Honor Roll List: 

Jackson Head, 2023 F, Georgia State Warriors (GA): Head was outstanding from the first game of the weekend. Standing in the 6'2"/6'3" range with a strong frame, he has great build for a forward at his age. Whether he was cleaning up misses on the offensive glass or stroking jumpers from deep over shorter defenders, he was very impressive the entire weekend. Going forward, Head should be regarded as one of the best 2023 forward prospects in the state of Georgia. 

Milton Gibbs, 2024 G, Georgia United Showtime (GA): Playing up in the 13U division as a 2024 prospect, Gibbs showed off his advanced knowledge of the game and his craftiness on the offensive end. Georgia United definitely benefited from having this young man at the helm and directing traffic this past weekend!

Coan Handy, 2023 F/C, Newnan Elite (GA): Standing nearly 6'3", Handy was easily one of the most physically imposing big men in the age division. Throughout the weekend he dominated the glass on both ends, and also displayed a soft-touch around the rim. Obviously Handy is still very young, but if he continues to grow and develop in the post he could make for a very interesting post prospect in the future. 

Brandon Rechsteiner, 2023 G, Georgia State Warriors (GA): For a 2023 prospect, Rechsteiner's feel for the game was highly impressive. He showed off his scoring abilities from all three levels and was a very fiesty on-ball defender. Even though he was always one of the smallest players on the floor, he fought extremely hard and battled it out with more physically imposing guards on the glass. 

Tyler Husband, 2023 G, Georgia Bison (GA): Husband was getting to the rim with ease throughout the event and also impressed with his ability to stop on a dime in transition and knock down jumpers from mid/long-range. He was a tenacious defender and racked up plenty of steals which led to easy buckets for his teammates and himself. 

Braylin Giddens, 2023 G, Georgia State Warriors (GA): Giddens ability to finish at the rim from a variety of angles as a 2023 prospect was impressive within itself. He also showed his great ball-handling skills and ability to push the ball in transition and leave the defense in the dust. Giddens is a very smart guard, that sees the floor well, and knows how to create easy oppurtunities for his teammates when the defense is caught napping. 

Austin Colton, 2023 G, Newnan Elite (GA): Colton was showcasing a beautiful stroke from beyond the three-point line and his elite ball-handling abilities that allow him to create open looks for his teammates. Even though Colton ran the point most of the time for his squad, he's certainly got the skills to be a very reliable combo guard in the future.
