• Willie Clayton (Thomasville, Ga./Thomasville) is a power forward to watch. Undersized? Sure but if the motor runs like it did on opening night all is well. Georgia, Mercer, Alabama, Charlotte and Florida State are in the mix.
Strengths: This guy brings it. He's engaged in the lane and will work hard for his points. Catches deep and goes up strong. Isn't afraid to mix it up on the glass. He's bouncy in the lane. Weaknesses: Does he have much of a perimeter game or skill outside the lane? Sometimes gets himself too deep in the lane but that's correctable. He has nice touch from 15' and at the line, but needs to continue developing his perimeter skills and ability to step out and shoot the ball. Bottom Line: He is a beast on the glass, great frame, soft hands and is fundamentally sound in the post. He keeps the ball high in the paint on put backs and post moves. His moves are quick and precise, using pivots and quick rips to get to the basket. He goes after every ball at both ends of the floor. The 2010 Georgia High School Association Player of the Year is a double-double guy each time out.

Clayton squared off against Greater Atlanta Christian’s Malcolm Brogdon — arguably Georgia’s No. 1 rising senior basketball prospect, ahead of the Milton trio — in this past season’s Class AA state championship.

I could be wrong, but I think he is good friends with E-Vic Nick. Maybe that could help us out..
