The 2015 travel season marked a breakout year for the Team Brandan Wright program out of Nashville. Now the club is on a mission to continue climbing.
“I would definitely say that we over-achieved this summer,” said Coach Spencer Richardson. “This is the first year that we’ve gotten his type of interest from the college coaches. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing since our last tournament in July.
“We probably have 10 or 15 girls who are generating interest, and that means a lot. A lot of these girls first came here and they were OK players, but then they put in a lot a hard work, and now they have become the type of players who get that interest.”
The Team Brandan Wright standouts will be showcased one more time this year at the All Star Girls Report sponsored Marietta Tournament of Champions. The event, which will be played from Sept. 25-27 at the Suwanee Sports Academy outside of Atlanta, Ga., will feature some of the nation’s finest travel squads.
Among the key performers in Marietta will be 2016 prospects Lejvae Davidson (5-6, CG), Chelsey Bird (5-7, PG) and Breuna Jackson (5-6, PG). Younger stars in the organization include Kesha Brady (2017, 5-7, 2G) and Erica Haynes-Overton (2017, 5-7, W). Hayes-Overton is rated as the No. 395 recruit in her class nationally by ASGR, and Brady is listed at No. 467.
“Lejvae had a great summer, and she’s up to about 10 offers,” Richardson said. “She just shoots the lights out for us. She had one game this summer where she scored 36 points with 10 three-pointers. Chelsey is a phenomenal pure point guard. She runs our offense, and Chelsey is responsible for a lot of the success our other players have. Breuna has been with us since the eighth grade, and she is a real leader. She is a scoring point guard who can get to the rim, she has a nice mid-range game, and she is a very good three-point shooter.
“Kesha is a solid, all-around basketball player on both ends of the floor. Erica is the most athletic girl in our program. She creates a lot of buckets in transition because of her defense, and she has an unbelievable mid-range jump shot.”
Richardson was also excited about a strong group of newcomers for the Marietta event, led by Jordyn Cambridge (2018, 5-9, PG), Brandi Beasly (2016, 5-8, PG) and Bria Dial (2017, 6-0, PF).
