South Georgia Elite 80 High School Camp

Updated: Oct 20

Albany, GA

Basketball is headed in the right direction in South Georgia. We had the opportunity to evaluate over 30 high school girls throughout South Georgia at the inaugural Elite 80 Camp at Deerfield Windsor School. Here are a few of the top performers from the camp.





Corlissa Johnson | Colquitt County HS | Senior | 5'8" Combo Guard

It didn't take long to notice who was the best shooter at camp. Johnson has picture perfect form on her shot and has the ability to make shots from deep. She can play either guard spot and is shifty enough to blow past defenders. Johnson has a good feel for the game and a strong build for a guard. Her activity on defense led to several steals and deflections. Johnson is a solid player that should gain the attention of college programs this year.



Amiyeon Grady | Clinch County HS | 2023 | 5'9" Guard

Grady is a player with big-time potential. She has good size for a guard and can play multiple positions on the floor. What stood out instantly was her ability to rebound, score, and facilitate. She is a 3 level scorer and can heat up quickly. On her drives to the basket, she has the ability to shoot over smaller guards and is a strong finisher. Grady has been one of the top players in South Georgia and is a preseason all-state selection this year.



Tykhia Burgess | Turner County HS | 2023 | 5'9" Wing

Burgess is an impressive athlete that can make plays on both ends of the court. In the drills she displayed good footwork and showcased her shooting. If you like toughness, Burgess has a ton of it. She is an offensive rebounding machine and can finish through contact with either hand. Burgess possesses the energy that coaches rave about. She is a preseason all-state selection that should have a strong senior season.



Tyana Dorsey | Clinch County HS | 2024 | 6'1" Forward

Dorsey was clearly the best post player at camp! She displayed nice moves in the post and has a good touch around the basket. Dorsey rebounded out of position, but what was most impressive was how she runs the floor like a guard. She is light on here feet and is a lane protector. With continued development, Dorsey can be a dominant player in South Georgia.



Truth Wimberly | Pelham HS | 2024 | 5'5" Point Guard

Her first name says it all. Truth has all the tools to be one of the best guards in the state. She has a tight handle and great vision which allows her to shake defenders and create for teammates. Truth is a floor general who constantly communicates and gives directions on the court. In ball screen situations, she puts passes on the money and makes it easy for teammates. She has good defensive instincts and is a scrappy on-ball defender which frustrates ball handlers. Truth reminds me of former Americus HS guard Trinity Jones who is now at Clark-Atlanta University.



Saniyah Graham | Monroe HS | 2023 | 5'8" Guard

Graham is a physical guard that uses her aggression to create havoc on the court. She was the best defensive player at camp as she played solid on and off the ball defense that created turnovers. Graham has a nice shot when she takes her time and sets her feet. With a little improvement on her handles, Graham should be able to attract the attention of colleges.



Jada Landers | Westover HS | Junior | Forward | 5'10"

Landers was one of the players that instantly caught our eyes. Throughout the drills, her footwork was impressive, she shot the ball with good touch and release, and she looked very comfortable creating off the bounce. She has a good frame and with her ability to attack facing the basket, she can be a mismatch. With continued development, Landers has a good foundation to grow into a solid player.




Jatiana Chambers Dougherty HS | 2025 | 5'2"

Chambers is a tough, feisty lead guard that uses her speed and quickness to excel on both ends of the court. She has great vision and is always looking to make plays for teammates. Chambers plays bigger than her size. She is not afraid to get in the lane and score over taller defenders. Additionally, she can knock down the deep ball, but she is very comfortable with her 2 dribble pull up shots in the mid-range. Chambers saw big minutes as a freshman and was selected to the All-South Georgia preseason team.


Joi Hubbard | Deerfield Windsor | Junior 5'7"

Hubbard represented the host school well with her athleticism and defensive prowess from the guard position. She is an underrated shooter, but has a good release and elevation on her shot. She made plays throughout the day by getting downhill and finishing in the lane. With her speed and power, She constantly puts pressure on the defense. Hubbard moves well without the ball and always looks to make the extra pass when necessary.

Rhiananna Mateyka | Ware County HS | 2025 | Forward | 6'1"

Rhianna is a special talent! She is one of the most versatile forwards in Georgia that I have seen in the 2025 class. One thing that was really impressive was her lateral quickness which allowed her to defend both guards and wings on the perimeter. In addition, she has the ability to stretch the floor with her shooting or attack off the dribble to create scoring opportunities, and she runs the floor like a guard. She is very unselfish and is looking to move the ball around for a good shot. Rhianna has a long frame which allows her to recover quickly on defense and alter shots in the lane. Her offensive skill set is still a little raw, but with continued development, she can easily be a high level prospect. She reminds me of former Early County star, Makayla Timpson, who stars at Florida State University.

Amira Walters-Smith | Mitchell County HS | 2025 | Point Guard | 5'2"

Amira is a cat quick point guard that uses her speed to blow past defenders in transition. Watching her in the drills, she has a very high skill set. Throughout the games she made a couple deep balls while mixing in short pull-up jumpers, and drives to the basket. Amira had a huge freshman season and should build on that success in her first year at Mitchell County. She has been selected to the preseason all-state team.

Sariyah Chester | Pelham HS | 2025 | Shooting Guard | 5'9"

Chester displayed a good feel for the game. She moves well without the ball and set her feet quickly to get her shot off. Chester can heat up instantly and knock down multiple threes in bunches. She has a lanky frame which allows her to grab rebounds and when she pushes the ball in transition, she usually makes good decisions. When Chester attacks the baskets, she has a few combo moves in her bag to get by defenders, but she also has the ability to pull up off the dribble. She played huge minutes for Pelham HS as a freshman and should have a bigger role this year.


Amariah Dean | Clinch County HS | 2026 | Guard | 5'9"


Dean is a big-time athlete that impacts the game in multiple ways. She is a nightmare in transition with her speed and explosiveness, where she puts so much pressure on defenses. On defense, she plays the passing lanes like a safety. She has great anticipation and with her active hands, she disrupts offensive flow. Dean was the highest jumper at the camp. The lefty has a crafty handle and knows how to get to spots on the court where she has the most success. With continued development, Dean will be a household name throughout the state.
