Here are a few more standouts from this past Saturday’s 250 Expo and we are excited to learn about some new players and new names.
Dauson Gardnier || Uintah High School || 2025 ||
Dausin was in his bag on Saturday and he showed that he is that Swiss Army Knife that gets things done on both ends of the floor. One of those impressive things he was doing was his work off the bounce. He was keeping his vision up and he was keeping his body in a place where he could rise up and shoot when the defense relaxed. Dauson was shooting the cover off the ball and he was just a playmaker. Another aspect of his game that was really noticeable is his movement away from the ball. He was able to get open with movement and he ws able to rebound with that movement as they could not get a body on him as he attacked the boards. Really like his all-around motor and skill as a do it all guard.
|| Laramie High School || Wyoming ||
At a first glance you can obviously see the size of him as a 6’8 big but he is a big kid and he plays with that strength but he also moves better than you might think. At times he would get catches running through the bottom of the baseline and catch in the mid-post and make some really quick moves that would get him some high quality looks at the rim. Good post moves with his back to the basket and there is still room for improvement. When he did catch the ball deep in the paint he was too tuff to stop. A lot of upside for the big fella that is only a junior.
|| Pine View High School || 2026 ||
Good young talent over at Pine View. Jelani shod some skills that will help his high school team for sure. The way that he was running the floor was great. If he just puts hius head down and rim runs he is going to get some easy dunks. When he stops and looks for the ball in transition it slows him down. Jelani is a wing that will likely need to play multiple positions but he has good vision and he is athlete that will be able to clean the glass and get easy put-backs. He could really pop in the next year or two.
|| West High School || 2024 ||
A lot of upside as the 6’6 SF has some major wingspan. Diew might be a +5 on the wingspan as he hauls in rebounds and alters shots with that length. If you have space for a player that can still develop this kid could be a find for a small school looking to spend a little bit of time to get him some more skills under his belt and some more mass, but there is upside for sure.
Ethan Harris || Farmington High School || 2024 ||
Ethan was solid this Saturday as he was a ball moving guard that played with speed and energy. He was also a player that was looking to get others looks the way he scanned the floor to look for the best option and was one of those players that played the right way for sure.
