Deandre Harvey, DME Academy
The 6-foot, Class of 2019 guard has proven himself as a serviceable game manager and scorer. Attacking along the baseline, scoring off the dribble and via a promising pull up game, Harvey has the battle tested experience to be the alpha dog next season.
Ricardo Clouden, Oldsmar Christian
The bouncy, hard-driving guard knows how to carve up a defense. An accurate depiction of “Mr. Everything” for first year Oldsmar coach Alex Arias, Clouden is at his best when knifing through defenders to score/create.
A crafty 6-foot-4 guard who can score at all three levels, Clouden has improved incrementally as a 3-point shooter and catch-and-stick threat. He’s developed a quicker release and more fluid jumper.
Tyrese Williams, Oldsmar Christian
Playing for a shorthanded Oldsmar team which has dealt with a significant share of transfers this season, Williams has been forced to go up against bigger interior players nightly.
He’s been hyper efficient. With a noted affinity for dunking and pulling off dazzling above the rim finishes, Williams has established himself as a high percentage threat.
Braxton Bartlett, Oldsmar Christian
While the beyond the arc game is truly Bartlett’s strength as a sharpshooting guard, a more prominent role and rigorous SIAA schedule has enabled Bartlett to grow up quickly.
The Division-I prospect is a better leader, defender, and more of a heady player.
A vastly improved strength of schedule, coupled with a bigger role following the departure of Elijah Weaver and D.J. Mitchell have each been a blessing in disguise for the Class of 2019 guard.
Bryson Langdon, Believe Prep Academy
Gritty 5-foot-9 guard has thrived at getting to the rim and blurring in the open court. Court and controlled, he’s got low to mid major Division-I potential. A pesky on-ball defender.
Jared Grubb, Believe Prep Academy
A 2,000-point scorer during a five year varsity player in Kentucky, Grubb is an extraterrestrial athlete with his shiftiness and strength. He’s developed a knack for piling up points in a hurry and also making the right reads.
J.J. Romer, Believe Prep Academy
The Miami area prospect has length and 3-point shooting ability, which definitely bodes well for a 6-foot-10 guy. He’s also shown an adeptness at finishing around the rim and in the open court.
Matt Tanis, Combine Academy (NC)
Strong, workhorse 5-foot-10 guard has grit and an extra year of polish. He’s had several high-20s and low 30s scoring games while taking leadership matters into his own hands on the court. A product of Mater High in Miami, Tanis has the potential to be a high caliber Division-II player or a high-impact player at the NEC Division-I level.
Idressa Bivens, The Nation Prep (Fla)
The 6-foot-2 guard has an effective mid-range game and thrives at creating space. This garnered notice on the biggest stage of the Class of 2019 guard’s young career, against NBA prospect Anfernee Simons and IMG Academy of Bradenton.
Isaiah Sulack, Believe Prep Academy
Smooth 6-foot-6 guard is a knockdown shooter who bounced back from a devastating leg injury earlier on in the season. Brings tough one-on-one defense and rebounding as well. Must gain muscle in order to bring an immediate impact at the Division-I level.
