It is always fun watching different levels when it comes to where kids can play after high school. Here are a few players that fit that bill and will be a fun watch this summer.
Bryton brings a unique skill set to a team as he is a downhill PG that can get other s the ball and he can also create shots for his teammates. The one things that makes him different taht even though he is a smaller PG is that he can create enough space for himself at all three levels and score as well. Bryton uses that quick first step to get defenders to back off and he can get room to shoot. Then he can get in the rim and push off and change direction in the mid range as well. When he does get into the paint he can quickly move from one side to another and finish against bigs. He is a much watch scorer and facilitator this summer.
One of the most unique athletes out there and that athleticism and size really separates him from other D1 prospects with his size and at his position. He is able to defend 1-3 with that lateral speed and recover as well. His shooting has really improved and he is not tied down to one position. A true CG that can bring the ball up but he can also jump in the post and do work. You can put him in the corner and he can stretch the floor as well. Defensively he can get after it and he is just starting to experience that growth playing at a high level so look for him to have a confident summer as well.
Great small school find that could catch the attention of some D2,D3 or even the NWAC schools simply with his motor alone. He has tenacity and you can see him compete against anyone. His grit to defend anyone on the floor is something you can see right off the bat. He has moved over to more of a lead guard role but he can shoot the ball. His play making ability and willingness to pass is great. Whe he does get going he is a solid scorer. He is a player ot watch this summer.
Bryson has been making some noise this summer already and we are looking as he has made a big jump from his freshman season and he is a player that has been dominating the JV level and has gotten that call up and with another young guard over at Woods Cross that can score it just helps spread things out for everyone to work. Good size off the ball but when he does have the ball in his hands he can put in major work. This kid is a possible stock riser in that talented Class of 2026.
Bradley might be a bit taller now as he is able to get that smooth shot off with ease over outstretched arms. Last season he was a game changer with that shooting ability and this summer is a great time to watch him do his thing at a high level on the UAA Circuit. That shooting ability is one of his biggest qualities but it is a solid foundation to watch the rest of his game develop. Stay tuned and tune int o watch Bradley this summer.
