Eagles At A Glance

BALLISLIFE PRESEASON NATIONAL RANKING: No. 5
MAXPREPS RANKING: No. 2

The young team that beat Berkmar 52-47 to claim the championship in Georgia’s largest classification (7A), then nearly shocked IMG Academy in the GEICO Nationals, should be even better in 2021-22 – led by a dynamite guard duo of Ohio State commit 6-2 SR Bruce Thornton (17 ppg, 9 apg, 7 rpg) and 6-2 JR Kanaan Carlyle (18.0 ppg, 5 rpg, 3.5 apg). Up front, Coach Allen Whitehart’s squad returns 264-pound brute 6-5 JR L.T. Overton, the nation’s No. 1 football recruit in his class, and another new arrival, Northeastern pledge 6-2 SR Chase Cormier (14.3 ppg, 6.0 apg at Greenforest GA), should provide reliable scoring depth for the 2010 City of Palms runner-up. … The status of two other players, 6-7 SR Jonathan Murray (Birmingham Huffman AL) and 6-4 SR Cam Walker (9 ppg, 6 rpg), is uncertain. … Thornton was a first-team MaxPreps Sophomore (2020) and Junior (2021) All-American, and his signature performance remains a 42-point explosion in an 81-80 loss to then No. 1-ranked Grayson on Nov. 25, 2019 in the Jared Cook Classic. He scored 29 points in a 90-77 win over Wheeler, and had 18 points, nine assists and six boards in the 73-68 loss to IMG, a game in which Overton grabbed 10 rebounds and the Eagles crept within a single point and had the ball with less than 90 seconds left.
