With the evolution of the game there are many players who feel they can shoot from the outside. In today’s game there are Centers and Forwards who can shoot the ball just as good or if not better than some guards. We are living in an era that is dependent on the outside shot and those that struggle to shoot from the outside will find themselves at a disadvantage, and will become easier to defend. For the class of 2018, there are many good shooters in Northern California who can shoot from the outside. Here are some of the top shooters in the area.
Nathan Robinson – Las Lomas HS SG 6’3′
Nathan has a really good form and shoots a high percentage from the outside. He can shoot coming off of screens and off the dribble. I expect for more colleges to inquire about him as the season winds down.
Jay Nagle – Wood HS SF 6’8′
There are some people that believe he could be the next Ryan Anderson due to his size and his shooting style. He has always been a catch and shoot type of shooter but he has worked hard on shooting off the dribble, and shooting coming out of the post position. He will do well at UC Santa Barbara next season.
Jack Kath – Granada HS PF 6’8′
Jack is another stretch four who will do well in college because of his high shooting percentage from the outside. He is perfect for pick-and-pop situations, and will be used to give better floor spacing for the guards to attack the rim.
Jacob Long – Deer Valley HS PG 6’1′
Jacob is different than the other shooters because of his range, and his quick release. He has a Stephen Curry type of shooting form that is hard to defend because of how quick he can get into his shooting motion, and he can shoot off the dribble. Long will be a valuable asset at the NAIA or Junior College level.
Jonah Geron – San Joaquin HS SF 6’6′
Jonah has an NBA jump-shot. He gets off the ground, has a quick release, great footwork shooting off of curls, and has a great range. Jonah was Able to knock down eight three-pointers against Salesian High School at the “Crush in the Valley” showcase.
