With the class of 2025 rankings getting a fresh update, it brought more clarity to which positions have the most depth and most talent. In this piece we take a closer look at the combo guard spot in our positional breakdown.
The Top Five
, St. Bernard, No. 1 CG, No. 10 overall
Versher is a high level scorer whose consistent range to the three-point line and off the catch and off the dribble are the things that make him dangerous. His ability to handle the ball in transition and create shots for himself and teammates puts him in that “combo” guard category. With senior point guardgraduating, it wouldn’t surprise us one bit if Versher takes the reins of the team and earns that point guard spot.
, Rancho Cucamonga, No. 2 CG, No. 11 overall
Glass is one of the elite three-point shooters in the state regardless of class, and while some will watch and label him just a shooter, the 6-foot-3 combo guard took another step in his playmaking and shot creating off the bounce. Glass attacked closeouts designed to run him off the line for straight-line drive finishes or to set teammates up with open shots.
, La Mirada, No. 3 CG, No. 13 overall
We could really categorize Gomez in many different positions because of his versatility but his multi-level scoring abilities and off-ball movement has us thinking the combo guard is a good spot for him. Gomez was one of the state’s scoring leaders and embodied that three-level mantra that is floating around the game these days. What made him a combo was his ability to create off the bounce for himself and teammates.
, Loyola, No. 4 CG, No. 23 overall
Patterson was forced to sit out the CIF Southern Section mandated transfer period this season but his presence was felt immediately upon his return. The 6-foot-2 sophomore has high level scoring feel to his game and can pour in jump shots from the mid-range and three-point levels of the floor. Patterson is best used as an off-ball creator in space who can also initiate offense when needed.
, Pacifica Christian/OC, No. 5 CG, No. 27 overall
Spillman proved to be one of the more productive prospects in this class last season. With Northwestern-bound guardmanning the point guard position, Spillman was free to roam and focus on what he does best: using his size, strength and speed to get downhill and finish through contact. Spillman wasn’t just a scorer, however, as he showed this season that he can get into the teeth of the defense and find open shooters and cutters.
Next In Line
, Montgomery, No. 6 CG, No. 30 overall
Sanchez was one of the biggest stock-risers in the 2025 class and is another guy who can be placed into multiple positions based on his skill-set. There were times this season where he played all five spots on the floor and his high basketball IQ to go along with his scoring prowess and passing abilities are what make him such an effective player.
, No. 7 CG, No. 36 overall
McCullough was forced to sit the entire season after transferring from Hesperia to Oak Hills, and while we didn’t get to watch him because of that, his talent and production as a freshman has him among the top combo guards in the 2025 class.
, No. 8 CG, No. 38 overall
Bailey is among the most dynamic athletes in the state regardless of class and uses those traits to be an effective transition scorer and playmaker. The 6-foot-1 sophomore glides and bounces to the rim with ease, can finish through and above contact, but we want to see him take another jump with his perimeter shooting and passing abilities.
