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 2020 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 point guards in the 2020 class.

Breakdown: When starting to think about the 2020 position rankings, we had thought about doing what we did with 2018 and breaking up in tiers but it is a little early for that. Possibly by the end of the summer we will have a better grasp. However, a loose look at this would be: HM-MM (1-2), LM-DII (3-10), DII-NAIA (10-18), NAIA-DIII (19-38).

Now, we are definitely going to be wrong about those numbers. Some will develop but as we have always said to anyone that has asked, we want to be right at the end of their careers. Everyone is developing at different rates so it is hard to be right about everything.  With that being said, where DII players are going to be strong in a fairly weak DII class with be with the point guards.

Where things get fun with this group is that Top 5 and this summer. I think guys like Brevin Jefferson and Nijel Pack can breakout and completely jump up a level.  Mix in the fact that the Top 5 are grouped so close and there are bound to be changes to watch for come July.

I also think there are guys down the line that are bound to make me rank them higher. Kenny Tracy, Turner Royal, Bradley Beemon, Jalen Causey, and Hayden Jones are among those I’m most interested to watch and see what they look like this summer. They have been among the harder guys to really get a grasp on and more viewings will hopefully put that into closer prospective.

Some guys down the list I’m also interested in looking at are Bobby Fry, Joe Martin, Tyler Boyle, and Noah Shook. These are all guys I have liked at one point but waiting to see that development.
