The class of 2019 had a number of top prospects who demonstrated that they are ready to play at a high level. These prospects had huge years and should be on everyone’s radars going into next season. With the club season finally underway, here is the All-State team for the class of 2019.
This selection was a no brainer. Jones dominated the entire season en route to demonstrating that he is the top prospect in the class of 2019. Jones is the best passer in the state and a more than capable scorer. He makes his teammates better and makes the game extremely simple. He is as college ready of a prospect as there is in the state.
DowDell is skilled and does a great job of creating shots for himself as well as being the recipent of Jones’ passes. DowDell is a scorer who is capable of shooting the basketball at a high rate from deep as well as attacking off of the dribble. This combination of 2019s is dangerous as the team could potential could two years in a row without losing a game.
Van Komen has improved greatly from last year to this year. In addition to being long, he seals well for position and has a soft touch around the rim. Van Komen has a high upside and played extremely well in the toughest region in the state. If he improves in the same fashion he did from his SO to JR year, Pleasant Grove could be the favorite to win the 6A state title next season.
Allfrey is one of the most dominant players in the 6A classification. His versatility and ability to score the basketball in an array of ways made him a defensive nightmare all season. Allfrey put Copper Hills in a position to make a nice run in the state tournament. His return next season should give Copper Hills confidence that they can make an even deeper run next season.
While Van Komen gets a lot of the attention, and rightfully so, Brown provides a guard presence for this team that is much needed. Good guards can survive without good bigs. However, good bigs cannot survive without good guards. Brown is a capable shooter and a good post passer. Brown had a huge season and will look to follow it up next year.
Willard played his best when it was needed the most. Bountiful’s journey to the final four was unanticipated to say the least. Willard does a little bit of everything for Bountiful. In addition to being a capable scorer, he gets after it on the glass while provided good anticipation on the defensive end. Further, he moves the basketball well and creates well for others.
