Every year there are a few players to move into a new boundary and make an impact. Here are a few players that have made moves recently and will likely make an impact with their new teams.
6’10 C→ American Fork High School || 2023 ||
will head from 4A to 6A as he joins the Cavemen to end his high school career. While AF is never in shortage of size Kean really adds depth to a team with some size already. Kean has a good feel for the game and with some stretch style of play between him and Aron Dunne you could see him step out a lot more than he did last year at Dixie. Kean adds a inside outside dimension to a team that was likely going to be a tough out without him. Look for Kean to also increase his value playing in 6A,
6’5 G Steven Xie → RSL Academy || 2023 ||
Who? Well Steven will come over to finish out his high school playing days at RSL Academy and will likely play the CG position which gives RSL more size and shooting ability. Steven played in the NBA Global Academy out of China where he was a PG so he can handle the ball. Good solid game all around as he has a nice floater and can shoot the deep ball. First look at him might be at Section 7.
6’1 PG→ Tmpview High School || 2023 ||
Taki has made a move from RSL Academy to a traditional high school where he is also suiting up for the football team. He is fast and has great instincts which would make him an ideal DB or WR. He has size at the PG position at 6’1 but he is going to be a well welcomed addition to a team that lost a lot of ball handlers. Taki will ease the load off of some of the young players as well as some of the returners as he can score at all three-levels.
6’9 F→ Wasatch Academy || 2024 ||
Let’s look at the last few bigs that have made their way to Wasatch Academy.(Utah). Fousseyini Traore (BYU), Robbie Armbrester (Houston/SF Austin), Caleb Lohner (BYU/Baylor), Maddy Sissoko (Michigan State) these are the last few bigs we have seen come through the program and end up in a great situation at the next level. Malick is currently the highest ranked player in Utah in the Class of 2024 and playing in the NIBC will only make him better as he will compete against other Division 1 athletes and not 3A players. Malick could see a lot of action next season and we are here for it. He has a 7’4 wingspan and he uses every single inch of it on both ends of the floor. A lot of upside here for this kid.
