We want to tae the time to acknowledge everyone putting in work heading into their senior season. We have a lot of talent across the state and Utah is always represented well no matter what state they are in. Here are our High Fives at the 17U level.
is out there shooting the lights out. He is hitting shots from all over and in different situations as well. He has shown that he can create space by simply jabbing and rising up. He has sized up the defender without a dribble and then proceeds to dribble once or twice setting up his long rang shooting. KJ is coming off of screens quickly and balanced to get a quick shot off. Teams have decided to not guard him because he is out or range, well KJ has been hitting from long range this Spring. He is a must guard player at all times and he is helping his Salt Lake Rebels squad.
Tanner has been a Game Changer this Spring as he is able to play all three guard positions and ot lose a beat. He could be undersized at the 3 but he holds his own on defense and then he is a tough guard at times for a 3 guard. He has a good feel for the game and he knows when to make one move and go and when to hit defenders with multiple combos or moves. Sharp shooter out in the perimeter and he has a smooth one to two dribble pull-up. His ability to get out and fill the lanes on the wing r to the hoop has really made a difference in his finishing on the fast break. He can hurt you out on the perimeter and he will dunk on you in transition.
This kid is a game changer as he runs the floor better than most people. He is solid on the block and just keeps it simple on his moves and his ability. He defends and rebounds. He catches the bal on the move and makes quick decisions. His next level ability has helped him pull some solid offers. Including one from Southern Nevada College as of late.
Playing with UBC Elite and having a bunch of players on the roster that can space the floor Spencer has found more space and it has allowed him to attack the rim. Kid is bouncey and this high level play will allow him to really help Mountain Ridge this next season.
Jaxon has really been as advertised. He is long, he can switch all 5 positions, and he can knockdown shots. Jaxon has been a big time floor stretching big. He works hard on both ends of the floor and he has a solid pace to his game. He had some solid dunks and three-pointers made thsi past live period and his recruiting is picking up new interest. He still holds a solid offer at Stanford and one of the few players that got re-offered by the new staff at Utah State, which says a lot.
