We recently unveiled our first 2021 class rankings. The class is shaping up to be one of the deepest we’ve seen in Kentucky in a while. This group is full of kids with high major upside. Time will tell if these young men reach that potential or not but you can’t help but get excited about this group overall. The point guard position is probably the deepest of all the position groups.
Zion Harmon (Adair County) – High major offers before starting high school. State champion. Team USA member. At this point, Harmon has done a lot and he hasn’t even played a game as a high school freshman yet. The only question with Harmon is how long he stays a Kentucky resident. Rumors are always swirling around the young man.
KJ Crump (University Heights) – Pure point guard who keeps the ball on a string. Crump can create for others and himself. KJ is a pass first PG who makes his teammates better. His high basketball IQ and a really strong midrange game makes up for what he lacks in height at this point in time. If KJ can grow to six foot, he can me a big time recruit nationally.
Ben Johnson (Lexington Catholic) – Johnson is an electrifying scorer who has tremendous range on his jump shot. Ben is an underrated athlete and comes from good genetics as both of his older brothers are currently playing Division 1 basketball. Ben could very well be the best of the 3 Johnson boys. Time will tell.
Jaden Rogers (Fern Creek) – A facilitating point guard who is at his best in the open floor, Rogers is going to be a factor in the 6th region for the next 4 years. Jaden’s dad is about 6’3 and if Jaden gets that height, he projects as a mid major or better point guard in college.
Q’Daryius McHenry (Ohio County) – Super athletic 2 sport star. McHenry has already been to the University of Kentucky for a football visit and just took a visit to Western Kentucky for basketball. He’s a good enough athlete that he could see offers to play both sports in college.
Other Names to Know: Makhi White (Eastern), TJ Toney (North Bullitt), Conner Cooper (Bowling Green), Jake Whitlock (Spencer County), Je’Vonte Turner (Knox Central)
