As most families sit around and enjoy the holidays. My brain never stop working to help improve the quality of a ball player’s life. 2018 is a unique class in the city of Las Vegas. It is very top-heavy with outstanding athletes that have made a stamp in the recruiting Arena.
Las Vegas is filled with a lot of underrated guards that have the ability to play college basketball at the next level.
2018 5’10” Point Guard Donovan Joyner of Las Vegas high is a unsigned senior. When we talk about under the radar players this young man falls within that category. He’s a physical player that is put together like a linebacker.
Before entering the Tarkanian Classic, Donovan Joyner was averaging 26.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.8 spg and 2 apg. He’s shooting 50% on 2 pt. FGA and 43% on 3 pt FGA, and 80% from the charity stripe.
Doing the Tarkanian classic he average 22 ppg 3.2 rpg and had a Breakout game against Wood Cross of Utah, where he dropped 41 points too shy of Las Vegas High School all time record.
5 Strength to his game:
- Ability to get to the basket
- Absorbing contact
- A very good defensive player
- A competitor that plays with intensity
Things to work on:
- Mid-range jump shot
- Court vision
- Three-point shot
Donovan Joyner has the ability to play at the next level. He is a very good Prospect that fits the D2, D3 college level. I expect for the recruiting process to pick up for this young man. He’s a sleeper, and will be a steal for some school when it’s all said and done.
