In celebration of my 100th article for PrepHoops, I’ve compiled a list of 25 junior and senior point guards. They may or may not be the top ranked players, but I believe all of these young men have college basketball potential. Their talent level ranges anywhere from D1-D3.
Bryce Armstrong (2018, Wyandotte)
An solid floor leader with explosive straight line speed. Armstrong is a dynamic point guard that can score in bunches. He’s can get no the lane and dish off to teammates for easy looks.
Elijah Baxter (2018, Benton Harbor)
He’s a true floor leader that rarely makes a mistake and creates opportunities for teammates. Baxter has a great mid range game.
David DeJulius (2018, EEVP)
The University of Michigan commit is arguably the top player in the state. He is steady as can be, but can still blow by an opponent and get to the rim. DeJulius is known in the state for his work ethic.
Daniel Everhart (2018, Marine City Cardinal Mooney)
This young man is a playmaking sharp shooter at the point guard spot. He’s efficient yet explosive and has the ability to carry his team.
Justin Fischer (2018, Warren De La Salle)
Its hard not to love his game. Fischer knows how to make things happen by pushing the ball up the floor and finding teammates in scoring positions. He can play at any pace and is a strength on both ends of the floor.
Trey Helinski (2018, Adrian Lenawee Christian)
This young man can change a game. He can score in bunches, but also run an efficient offense and put his teammates in position to be successful.
Jalen Kelso (2018, Walled Lake Northern)
He has a reputation for his defense. Kelso is one of the elite defensive point guards in Michigan. His on-ball defense is outstanding and he’s always a threat to create a turnover. Kelso has a nice mid range game on the other end.
Ja’Kavien Lewis (2018, Flint Carman Ainsworth)
Lewis is another point guard that prides himself on his defense. There are few more dangerous on ball defenders. He’s an athletic hustle player who simply makes plays.
Foster Loyer (2018, Clarkston)
The Michigan State commit is a WINNER. He’s a leader on one of the deepest, most talented teams the state of Michigan has ever seen. He’s as efficient as a point guard can be and recognizes who needs the ball and when.
Pierre Mitchell (2018, (DEPSA)
If you like explosive and shifty point guards, this is your guy. He can get the all anywhere on the court. He can play at all different paces and can score from all three levels.
Brandon Wade (2018, Skyline)
He’s off to a hot start this season and proving that he’s a contender for Mr. Basketball. He is filling the stat sheet by scoring and getting assists in bunches. Wade is a true team player who thrives off the success of others.
Rashad Williams (2018, Wayne Memorial)
He can play either guard spot and will always put up numbers. Williams might be the best shooter in Michigan. He can play defense and put teammates in position to score. Williams is one of the top five players in Michigan.
Lewis Willis (2018, Huron)
Not only can Willis run an offense, but he can catch fire from three point land as well. He’s a sharpshooter with ball handling skills to match. Willis is a strength on the defensive end.
Deondre Bonaparte (2019, Ferndale)
If you need a bucket immediately, there may not be a better point guard in the 2019 class. Deondre can score from anywhere and can finish with both hands. He’s a hard working kid and a leader.
Micah Cramer (2019, Unionville-Sebewaing)
We all like fundamentally sound point guards and this kid fits the bill. Everything he does is with precision. Cramer is a stickler for the fundamentals which has and will allow for his optimal development.
Clayton Dykhouse (2019, Zeeland East)
This guy takes pride in his teammates success. Dykhouse has a good assist-to-turnover rate, in part because he makes the correct decisions with the ball. He chooses efficiency over flash which leads to positive results.
Zach Goodline (2019, Caloma)
Goodline can simply fill it up from deep. He’s a bulk scorer, but offers much more than just that. He’s a high IQ point guard who can play defense as well.
Cam Hudson (2019, Detroit Loyola)
He has a college ready physique right now. The kid is strong and tough and uses this to his advantage. When you combine this with his elite ball handling skills, he can get the ball to any part of the floor.
Dylan Jergens (2019, Howardsville Christian)
Jergens can light up the scoreboard with his jumper. He’s also a solid passer giving his teammates the ball on a string and in their shooting pocket. Jergens is a high IQ player.
Isaiah Lewis (2019, Wayne Memorial)
This kid can do it all. He can play off the ball and score from multiple levels, but is elite with the ball in his hands setting up the offense. Lewis is very good at finding his teammates in scoring positions.
Drew Lowder (2019, Pioneer)
Lowder is a lightning bolt with ball. He keeps himself and the ball low to the ground and has great speed and quickness. Lowder is shifty and can create lanes to basket and space to shoot.
Nmeso Nnebedum (2019, Kalamazoo Loy Norrix)
He plays the game one pass ahead of live action. Nnebedum is the type of point guard that always sees the ultimate result in each decision he makes on the court. He’s a pass first point guard with a nice mid range game.
Bobby Walton (2019, Oak Park)
This young man can shoot from deep and score in bunches. He can play on or off the ball, while still stacking up the assists. Walton has a high ceiling and has seen rapid improvement in the last 18 months.
Josh Warren (2019, Woodhaven)
Warren is an athlete. He’s fast and has good ball handling skills which makes him almost impossible to keep off the scoreboard. He draws a lot of attention from the defense when the ball is in his hands, which creates opportunities for others.
B. Artis White (2019, Canton)
He’s known as one of the top defensive guards in Michigan. The kid creates havoc on the court while always keeping himself in complete control.
