Pack Heavily Pursuing Five-Star '09 Prospect

Centennial High School is home to Lorenzo Brown, and the class of 2009 prospect is prepping for a big season.

ROSWELL, GA -- Basketball in the state of Georgia is going to be very competitive this year, as a number of schools have enough talent to win the state championship. Centennial High School is among that group and their talent was on full display Wednesday morning.

Brown Throws It Down
Knights head coach Allen Whitehart put four of his players through a half an hour workout that focused on shooting. Centennial standout Lorenzo Brown looked great during the session.

He closed out the summer strong in Las Vegas with the Worldwide Renegades and his game is continuing to develop. His jump shot and mid-range game are two areas that definitely standout.

At 6-foot-4, Brown has great size for the point guard position and sees the floor very well. Although he's an unselfish player, Brown is also quite a scorer. His hesitation moves and ability to get to the basket make him tough to defend.

Although he's already ranked relatively high (No. 17), there's still plenty of room for him to move up the rankings, as he will get seen a lot this year with his team playing national schedule.

Johnson Picks Up UAB Offer
"I think I'm getting a little bit better, but I still haven't gotten to my goal and where I want to be at," Brown said following the workout.

Coaches have certainly noticed Brown's improvement. There have been a bunch of schools in to see him, including Sidney Lowe (three times), Frank Haith (twice) and Billy Donovan.

To go with N.C. State, Miami and Florida, Brown is also hearing from Virginia Tech, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Ohio State, Connecticut, Auburn and Tennessee.

"I like North Carolina State and Miami," Browns said. "[N.C. State] has been at just about every workout I've had, same thing with Miami.

To go with Brown, Centennial has a solid senior prospect in Robbie Johnson. The 6-foot-7 combo forward is a great shooter, especially from deep and he'll provide the Knights with another scoring option on the wing.

Shooter Alert!
Johnson recently picked up a scholarship offer from UAB and is also hearing from Lipscomb, Richmond, Fordham, Columbia, Lehigh, Wofford, Winthrop and College of Charleston.

The other two players that worked out on Wednesday were junior guard Alex Coxworth and sophomore Kameron Berlin. Coxworth, a 6-foot, 165-pound guard, is a deadly shooter from deep.

He displayed great form, a quick release and an ability to shoot the ball off the dribble. The 2009 prospect, who played with the Georgia Stars 16's this past summer, is seeing his recruitment pick up.

This past weekend Coxworth traveled to Davidson and took in their midnight madness festivities. He's also getting interest from Furman, Western Kentucky, Wofford, Virginia Tech and Tennessee Tech.

Sophomore Kameron Berlin
Berlin, who we recently saw at the Pangos All-South Frosh/Soph Camp, surprised us with is ability to shoot the ball. He consistently knocked down shots and showed that he'll be able to play inside and out this season.

At 6-foot-6 and just sophomore, Berlin has plenty of time to grow and will shape up as a solid combo forward. He's already hearing from schools. Virginia Tech and Stanford are currently keeping tabs on him.

The Knights will play in a number of national events this coming season. They'll travel to New Mexico to play in a showcase against Jersey City (N.J.) St. Anthony, they'll also play in the Chic-fil-a Shootout in South Carolina and in a showcase in Lexington, Ky.
