For the most part there wasn’t a ton of movement in the point guard ranks in the class of 2017 in our latest update. Here are a few guys that did have upward swings though.
PG Evan Gilyard (Simeon)
Gilyard proved with his play at Nike Elite 100 that he was a legit mid-major prospect. He backed it up again throughout July with Meanstreets helping their 16U team capture some huge victories. The high IQ point guard has a good feel for how to run a team and get others involved. He can also score with a floater in the lane and a solid pull up jumper.
PG Jalen Clanton (Riverside Brookfield)
Clanton had a nice sophomore season, wasn’t great in the spring due to injury, and then had a comeback July with the Illinois Wolves. The Riverside Brookfield lead guard has nice strength and athleticism. He makes plays in the lane scoring for himself or kicking to open teammates. Active defensively as well. Needs to be on mid-major and low-major radar.
PG CJ Coldon (Belleville Althoff)
Coldon is the unsung player for Belleville Althoff. The lead guard had another good summer playing with the Southwest Illinois Titans. He also helped his stock when we saw him during June playing with his high school team. The powerful guard is a plus passer with a feel for how to run a team and get the ball to his scorers. Should be under low-major consideration.
PG Tai Bibbs (West Chicago)
Bibbs had a breakout July with Mercury Elite. The 2017 point guard picked up several offers and by the end of the month was playing up with the 17U team. One to watch more during the high school season.
