Check out my analysis from some of the standout point guards of the 2022 class that were on full display during the 2021 Prep Hoops Louisiana Top 250 Expo. I got a hands-on look at all of these high-level athletes. Look for their stock to continue to rise after some very impressive performances!
Wesley Fields Wesley Fields 5'11" | PG St. Micheal's | 2022 State LA 2022 St. Michael High School
Wesley is a dynamic playmaker who is comfortable with the ball in his hands. He has freak athleticism for the guard position, he can run with the best of them and has the ability to leap with bigger wings. A standout two-way guard, Fields displayed an ability to wreak havoc on the defensive end and score with the best of them on offense. He is great off the dribble with his jump shot and is comfortable getting to a nice floater and pull up in the midrange. He is a very aware player and knows how to manipulate the defense to get to his spots on the floor. Fields is a polished player in many aspects already, but I would like to see him work on finishing with his off-hand around the rim. I love his ability to do damage in the midrange but at times it seems like he would rather take a pull-up jumper than finish strong at the rim.
Braylon Richard Braylon Richard 5'9" | PG Lafayette Christian Academy | 2022 State LA 2022 Lafayette Christian Academy 5’10
Braylon is a crafty scorer at the point guard position, he is great at getting to the bucket and is a skilled shooter at all three levels. He has a good shot from the corners and can put the ball on the floor to get to his own spots. I was impressed with his ability to get into the midrange and score with his jumper and a soft floater. For an undersized guard, he scores well in the paint, however, I would like to see him work on finishing with both hands.
Daylen Turner Daylen Turner 5'11" | PG Holy Savior Menard | 2022 State LA 2022 Menard High School
Daylen was a standout guard with incredible potential. He is a very crafty point guard who can avoid contact and finish in the lane. He is great at shooting off the bounce at all three levels. He also showed a real ability to move without the basketball and create space. I loved his ability to finish and make decisions in the full court, his foot speed and awareness on the fast break created many easy opportunities for his team.
Adam Mercier Adam Mercier 6'0" | PG Parkview Baptist | 2022 State LA 2022 Family Christian High School
Adam is an athletic point guard with a real ability to finish in traffic. He possesses a real leaping ability and can throw down impressive dunks over defenders. He can knock down three-pointers from around the arc as well. When he gets his feet set, he is hard to stop, especially with the threat he puts on the defense in the paint.
Parviz Scott Parviz Scott 5'11" | PG Walker | 2022 State LA Jr 2022 Walker HS
Parvis is an aggressive point guard who thrives on the fast break, he loves pushing the pace and putting pressure on the defense with his speed and ability to get downhill. At times he is out of control with his head down, he needs to work on remaining patient and keeping his head up and aware of the collapsing defense. There were a few plays where he could have set up his shooters after the help defense slid over to stop him and protect the rim.
