With our updated rankings coming out late last week, there were some big movers. But we also saw some familiar names at the top of the list. Here, we look at the top point guards/combo guards in the class of 2019. The guard crop in 2019 is probably the deepest position in the class and will have several Division 1 signees before the class graduates and move on to the next level. Many of these young men are not true point guards but play point for their high school teams so we’ve included them as combo guards.
David Johnson, Trinity – Fresh off his commitment to the University of Louisville last Friday, Johnson was just ranked #33 in the country by Scout.com. Recently detailed Here in a Recruiting Report, Johnson possesses everything you’re looking for in a high major combo guard. His combination of slashing and shooting ability combined with great size for the position makes him a potential NBA draft pick if he can develop under Coach Rick Pitino over his career at Louisville.
Dekeyvan “Ky Ky” Tandy, University Heights Academy – Coming off a sophomore season where he averaged nearly 24 points per game while shooting over 50% from the field, Tandy holds offers from Florida, New Mexico State and Oklahoma. Rivals.com recently ranked Tandy at 125th in the country in the 2019 class. Standing 6’1″, Tandy will need to prove he can play the point guard position for UHA after the graduation of Tray Hollowell.
Tre’Von Smith, Taylor County – Another member of the class of 2019 who already holds a Division I offer, Smith is another big time scorer who can get buckets with the ball in his hands or off the ball. After averaging over 17 points per game as a sophomore for the Cardinals, Smith received a scholarship offer from Morehead State head coach Preston Spradlin.
Rodriguez Thomas, Paducah Tilghman – The son of a former Murray State Racer, Rodriguez is a big time shooter from the point guard spot for the Blue Tornadoes. With interest from all college levels, Thomas is certainly going to be a college basketball player. Rod recently detailed his junior season expectations in a prospect spotlight you can find HERE.
Jordan Graham, George Rogers Clark – A heady point guard from Winchester, Graham is getting college interest from all levels. Possessing a high basketball IQ and good size and athleticism for the position, Graham has a chance to play at the Division I level. Jordan has heard from Northern Kentucky, Kentucky Wesleyan, Georgetown College and Lafayette.
