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 rebounders in the 2019 class.

When talking about the wings in this class and their best rebounders among them, you have some really elite level guys at the top. There is a lot of depth at this spot too but the top is really, really good.

Ozzie Johnson is so athletic and so long and most of the time he tends to play more of a 3/4/5 spot and that can put him in better position than he might be in college. He’s so rangy, it isn’t a surprise about how well he does.

Zach Kuhn is just one of those guys who gives you a little bit of everything. He’s tough and while not particularly lengthy, he seems to always be in the spot to get the ball before anyone else and has enough size to fight them off.

Dallas Holmes might be an unknown name right now but he is similar in that to Kuhn. He just gives you everything. Built more as a forward than a guard or wing, he can play all over and has some size and length to play with.

Craig Young might be among the elite players in the Midwest. He’s just so big and so athletic and if it is even close to him, he will win the ball every time. Part of the reason he is a WR target at the next level.

Nate Soltis is up there as well. He’s ultra-aggressive and so tough. He will just bowl you over to get to the ball and he has sneaky athletic ability that give him an added edge. He’s too big to push around, even for post players.
