The 2024 rankings are out.
We dive into the positional rankings. We first look at the point guards for the junior class.
Here are the top-10 PG’s in the 2024 class:
Styles Phipps Styles Phipps 6'1" | PG St Mary's | 2024 State #148 Nation AZ St. Mary’s
The dynamic scoring point guard makes it look easy. His athleticism has improved a little and he is a three level scorer. His shift to his handle is about as good as it gets. He slices up the defense and dishes it out when needed. His pull-up is polished and gets to the basket with flair.
Terrence Hill Jr Terrence Hill Jr 6'2" | PG TBD | 2024 #175 Nation OR AZ Compass Prep
A pure facilitator with speed and a tight handle. He is one of the best passers in the West and in the state from the junior class. He changes speeds well and can burst by his defender and will thread it into a teammate’s shooting pocket. He shoots the three with range and can pull-up.
Rowan McKenzie Rowan McKenzie 6'2" | PG Boulder Creek | 2024 State AZ Boulder Creek
A tough and strong lead guard with that football grit. He is a load getting downhill with his frame and tight handle and has that much needed range. He can survey the scene to make plays but he is more of that scorer. He picked up his first offer from NAU recently.
Tommy Randolph Tommy Randolph 6'2" | PG Phoenix Christian Preparatory | 2024 State AZ Phoenix Christian
The top athletic point guard on the list. He has a college ready body to go along with his bounce. He is almost a bully getting into the lane and scores easily thru contact. He can hit perimeter jumpers and find players for scores.
Gabe Pickens Gabe Pickens 6'0" | PG Dream City Christian | 2024 State AZ Dream City Christian
Another pure point guard with incredible strength. He has that running back build and speed to carve his way into the lane to score or dime a teammate. He can hit the three with more range and is a pit bull on-ball defender.
Donovan Beard Donovan Beard 6'2" | PG Dobson | 2024 State AZ Dobson
One of the easier scorers in the AIA is a three level scorer. He is very slithery to get past his defenders and rises up high on his pull-ups from mid-range. He can hit the three and is quick on the ball defensively.
Zander Kamai Zander Kamai 6'3" | PG Phhoenix Prep | 2024 State AZ Phhoenix Prep
A post grad point guard is skilled with decent size and the lefty can really shoot it. He has a huge IQ and changes speeds to get into the paint but his stroke is pure from the three point line. He advance passes it up the court well and can drive and kick.
Isaiah Bronson Isaiah Bronson 6'2" | PG Bella Vista Prep | 2024 State AZ Bella Vista Prep
A lefty scoring lead guard with one of the best pull-ups in the class from mid-range. He can handle the pressure from the opposing guards and brings good energy off the bench as another scoring option.
Isaiah Hill Isaiah Hill 5'10" | PG Pueblo | 2024 State AZ Pueblo
A shifty point guard is lightning fast with the ball in his hands. He gets to the spots he wants with his tight handle and speed with the ball. He can make perimeter jumpers but likes attacking the basket. He is also a top rebounding guard. He averaged 22 points and 7 rebounds per game.
Jaylen Wollangk Jaylen Wollangk 5'11" | PG Mesquite | 2024 State AZ Mesquite
A physical pure point guard has taken his game to another level this season. He always had the toughness, competitiveness, defense and confidence, but now is turning into more of a scoring threat. He can shoot it from deep plus get into the paint with his frame.
