Here is a look at some of the top Class of 2020 point/combo guards from last weekend’s Adidas Invitational in St. Louis:
Ray’Sean Taylor 6’1″ Gateway (IL): The talented point guard from Collinsville, IL led Gateway (IL) to the championship in the 16U Division. He is quick and has nice handles, but he also plays the game with a lot of poise and savvy. He can play at different paces and he doesn’t get rattled by pressure. He consistently showed the ability to break down defenders and score on layups, floaters and short jumpers. Taylor just did an excellent job of leading his team.
Kyle Geraghty 5’11” Arsenal Hoops: The young point guard had a very productive weekend as a playmaker and scorer. He displayed good poise when opposing defenders tried to push up on him. He could handle the ball well and create plays off the dribble for himself and his teammates. He also shot the ball well throughout the weekend.
Tyrus Reddin 5’9″ SEMO Bulls: A small point guard who plays a lot bigger than his size because of his explosiveness. I like how he can routinely jump over much bigger players and grab rebounds in traffic. He also has a nice jumper in which he gets good elevation once he gets in the lane, which he does quite often. He can also knock down a 3-pointer if a defender backs up too much to kept them honest.
Dayton Turner 5’9″ TEM Select: An energetic point guard who knows only one speed to play and that is fast. He plays with pace as he is always looking to attack the basket off the dribble. His lack of size doesn’t bother him in the least as he continues to play aggressive on both ends of the court. He also has the ability to finish at the basket in traffic.
Adam Sommer 6’3″ Gateway: Adam has good size and strong body which enables him to play with a lot of toughness with the ball. He can physically keep defenders at bay as he can get to the basket. His pull up jumper is excellent, plus he can drop dimes off the dribble when he spots an open teammate.
Casey Jones 5’5″ Arsenal Hoops: This mighty mite plays the game with a lot of energy at both ends of the court. His combination of quickness and strength makes it difficult for opposing guards to keep him out of the lane. He creates all kinds of problems with his dribble penetration because he can make a floater of find an open teammate for an easy scoring opportunity. He is also a pest on the defensive end.
