Region 1 is a but of an unknown in the state of Utah. A lot of the star players from last year have graduated. The region will be very balanced and we could see some surprise finishes within the region standings. Region 1 includes Sky View, Mountain Crest, Clearfield, Roy, Northridge, Fremont, and Weber. Here is our top 5 players in the region.
- Luke White (Sky View) The 6’6 senior forward is the lone returning starter for a Bobcat team that made it to the 2nd round of the state tournament. White averaged nearly 11 points per game while connecting on 44 three pointers. I expect white’s scoring production to increase with more of the offense going toward him. White is a D2 and NAIA prospect.
- Saxton Morby (Fremont) The 6’0 senior guard is the heart and sole of the Wolves. Morby, the standout of quarterback is also a knock down shooter for the basketball team. Morby started off the season by scoring 13 points in a loss to Ridgeline High School. Fremont will rely on Morby’s shot making ability to do well in Region 1. Morby is a mid level junior college and NAIA prospect.
- Connor Shaw (Weber) The 6’0 foot senior guard has shown flashes of greatness. Last season Shaw went for 30 points vs Sky view and was unstoppable in several games. It will be interesting to see if shaw can be consistent for the Warriors as they need a go to scorer this year. Shaw is a D2 and NAIA prospect.
- Zach Taylor (Fremont) The 6’7 junior forward has a lot to prove this season. After quitting the team last year, Taylor has rededicated himself to the team in hopes of having a good year for the wolves. Taylor has tons of potential and in the season opener he had 11 points and 11 rebounds. Taylor is a low D1 and D2 prospect and would probably benefit from playing junior college.
- Mason Falslev (Sky View) The 6’1 freshman will be a dominate player for the years to come. Falselv has never played in a high school basketball game but we believe he is going to be an immediate impact freshman for the Bobcats. After tearing it up with his club team Utah Hard knox, Falsev has shown he is ready to play at the varsity level. He is a D1 prospect and if continues to grow and improve could be a high level recruit.
