With playoffs wrapped up and champions crowned summer hoops are quickly approaching and here are the top guards from the class of 2024 that you don’t want to miss!
One of the most dynamic guards in this class and all of Oklahoma high school basketballis a stellar combo guard with a vast skillset and high IQ of the game. Forsythe plays with poise and precision getting to his spots effortlessly in the flow of the Dale Pirates offense. The catalyst of the Pirates back to back state title wins this summer is going to continue an upward trend on everyones radar this summer going into his Senior year.
is an athletic guard with length and ability to take over games at will. With the absence of Trent Pierce causing a hole in offensive and team leadership Union, Dixon stepped up and become the beacon for Union as the fought valiantly through this season. Cedric is vocal and communicates well with his teammates on the floor and is constantly in motion always moving without the ball poking at holes in the defense. Having received his first D1 offer from the university of Omaha earlier this season he’ll be on the prowl to make some noise this summer so keep your eyes open
Shifty, Explosive, Intelligent, all describeand how he approaches the game! Valentine is a force on the offensive end for the simple fact he is a threat not only to score at will but to set up his open teammates to do the same. Ja’Mon is a 3 level scorer that led a well rounded Choctaw Yellowjackets team to a 6a State semi-final where they fell to the Edmond North Huskies would go on to be the 6a State Champions. is in a position to make waves this summer and lay some groundwork for another shot at that 6a State Title next season.
is a athletic bruiser with range. Powell is a big guard who can finish above the rim and and nearly unguardable when getting downhill do to body control and his strength when finishing inside. Wyatt was the driving force behind an impressive 3a State Championship push by Metro Christian but ended up falling short to a talented Millwood program. Powell brings a rare energy to the court that many players have, that type that can shift momentums of games on the offensive and defensive end of the ball. This summer could potentially be the launch pad Powell needs to help lead Metro to a title next season.
is a smooth guard with length, IQ, and some major bounce. When you think of guards that thrive playing above the rim Johnson should come to mind, no one is trying to jump with him. Jeremiah is always smooth and under control when attacking the basket and it allows him to have midrange game which is rare in this age of highshchool players, making him that much harder for defenses to figure out. Leading this Edison Eagles to a 5a State Tournament that ended quickly with a first round exit at the hands of Del City, is more then all the motivation Johnson would need to have a very promising summer with eyes set on another tourney appearance but this time to leave with some hardware.
