While the names of the upper classman are echoed here and there they new young players are coming up the ranks. Here is a list of some young talent that you should know of.
Youngster has some game and a lot of motor. He is a go getter that does the little things. He currently plays on a team that is loaded with guards but after a few graduate this year he might be able to get some playing time. He has good size and skills. Zack plays unselfish and he is a hustler on the boards as well. One of the more active lower level players out there. Should have a good career over at Alta.
Will has really hit a growth spur as he is now 6’7 and they well continues to run over at Timpview. They have been able to keep good talent in the pipeline and they have always been able to mis in some youngsters with the older players. Will should get his shot next year as they will add more height with him. It would not be a surprise if this kid grows a few more inches.
Bouncey wing out there in Heber City. JJ is going to be one of those combo volleyball player that play basketball as well that we will start to see as Utah has sanctioned boys volleyball now. Wasatch is a school that is wide open for young talent.
If that name looks familiar it is because he has a big brother that is killing it right now. Jase still has time to develop. Height is something that he will continue to get and he has some tough physical skills right now. He will need some time to develop but he is a player to take note of.
Austin has been killing it over at ALA and that time has been valuable to his development. Solid handle and scoring ability. He should be able to get a lot of minutes playing at a small school while other players in his class wait till it is their turn to see the floor.
With 4 or so guards graduating from this current team it is going to be wide open for a player like him to earn minutes on the floor. He has a sister that is playing Division 1 ball at West Virginia right now so there is talent in the genes. He is going ot be a true 3 guard when he reaches his ultimate height and potential. Right now he is playing that position at the lower levels. Stay tuned with this kid coming up the ranks over at Murray.
