The Mid-Atlantic Independent School Shootout was filled with talent as players were doing their best to help their teams win. The guard play was really strong as they made plays throughout the weekend. Here are the guards who stood out at the Mid-Atlantic Independent School Shootout.
, 6’3 PG Malvern Prep 2024
Williams had a solid weekend for the Friars as he ran their offense throughout the weekend. The 6’3 guard has a nice handle, which he used to get into lane and drew contact. Williams was able to create separation off the bounce and showed off a nice touch in the mid-range. He made good passes and slid his feet well on the defensive end. Williams’ ability to run the offense is something that will be key to his success this summer for Philly Pride.
, 6’0 PG Lawrenceville 2023
Sanders had a strong weekend for the Big Red as he controlled the pace of the game for them. The 6’0 floor general used his handle effectively as he was able to get into the paint routinely and finish around the basket. Sanders did more than just slash as he shot the ball with confidence from behind the arc and knocked down several jumpers from behind the arc. He was vocal on the defensive end and got his teammates involved in the halfcourt. Sanders is a gritty lead guard who will do whatever it takes to help his team win.
Jean Aranguren, 6’3 CG Springfield Commonwealth Academy 2023
Aranguren had a huge weekend for the Tornadoes as he picked up offers from Fairleigh Dickinson and UMBC. The 6’3 guard attacks the basket with a purpose as he is a strong finisher around the basket and does not mind contact. Aranguren also showed his ability to score in the mid-range and knocked down key jumpers for his team down the stretch. He moved well without the ball in his hands and showed the ability to defend multiple positions. Aranguren is a two-way guard who will be a name to watch this summer.
, 6’3 CG Hun 2023
Vessey had a good weekend for the Raiders as he showed his ability to impact the offense in a number of ways. The 6’3 guard has a smooth release on his jumper as he made opponents pay for giving him space behind the arc. Vessey moved well without the ball in his hands, freeing himself up for open shots on the perimeter. He finished nicely around the basket and is an underrated passer. Vessey’s shooting combined with his ability to get to the basket is something that will help his stock in a big way.
Jarell Keel, 6’2 SG Academy of the New Church 2023
Keel had a strong weekend as he was aggressive with the ball in his hands. The 6’2 guard attacked the basket with a purpose as he finished nicely around the rim and was unafraid of drawing contact. Keel showed off a nice release on his free throws and was able to score in the mid-range. He fought for rebounds on both ends of the floor and moved his feet on the defensive end. Keel is a hard-working guard prospect who makes plays at both ends of the floor and is looking to carry over his success from the weekend into July.
