Posted On: 03/27/18 3:16 PM

The spring is now just about here and we are spending time over the next month preparing and previewing all you need to know about the 2019 class as AAU gets ready to get going.  We will breakdown many areas with not only position breakdowns but the best of the best. Today, we are looking at those top sleepers in the 2019 class.

Prospect HT POS High School
Nehemiah Jones 6’3 SG Cardinal Ritter
Kyron King 6’0 PG Mishawaka Marian
Zach Banks 6’0 PG Westfield
Calvin Larkin 6’1 PG Winamac
Connor Jones 6’3 SG Danville

The class of 2019 with regards to sleepers brings out a few really under-the-radar names. Most guards develop early so it isn’t usual to find a bunch of good names this late but there are a few to know here.

Nehemiah Jones is a big guard from Cardinal Ritter that has a lot of game but is still developing. He has a ton of skill but a little raw right now but could really blossom quickly with a little more run. His size on the perimeter is nice and he should be able to give you a bit of versatility.

Kyron King was a guy we caught late last year and were very impressed.  His length and ball handling ability in the open floor were good and if he could develop more offensive ability, he could grow into a player. With a ton of good guards, he’s a guy you should be keeping an eye on.

Zach Banks has been really impressive in the games we have seen this year and can really score it. He’s a thin guard with a little shake to him and can score from three and in the lane. He’s not a well known name right now but small schools should be interested once they seem him put up points this summer.

Calvin Larkin was a guy we caught at Elite Camps last Fall and had a stellar high school season. Now, he’s going to need a few looks this year because he’s a guy that has size, scoring, and skill along with a little toughness.  Not a high-level player but deserves a lot more attention than he is getting.

Connor Jones is another Danville guard and a big one that can shoot. He’s 6’3 and tough and showed again this year that he’s a player at the next level with his shooting ability and strength that plays up in the post. Think he could be a small school guard that could even post up down low and should rebound at a high level.
