Posted On: 04/10/18 12:43 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 athletes in the 2019 class.

Prospect HT POS High School
Frank Davidson 6’5 SF Blackhawk Christian
Nate Soltis 6’5 SF Cardinal Ritter
Craig Young 6’6 SF Fort Wayne Wayne
Keion Brooks Jr. 6’7 SF Fort Wayne North
Jesse Bingham 6’5 SF Warren Central

Breakdown:  The class of 2019 has a ton of wings that have a variety of skills but the best of the bunch are really, really athletic. This list of five is only really part of the options we had to choose from.

Frank Davidson is one of the more athletic players you might have not heard of yet. He’s long, bouncy, and quick. At 6’5, he can do a lot of things you don’t expect and has so much skill, he’s going to be great at the next level.

Nate Soltis is what you would consider sneaky athletic. He’s about 6’5 and really well put together but he’s deceptive with his bounce and strength. He can jump from two-feet really well and it gives him a ton of options as he plays more in the post than the wing.

Craig Young is an outstanding athlete who really glides. He’s a football player and will likely go that way in college but he’s talented on the basketball court as well. His football skill shows through but he’s best when he attacks the rim to glide and get a rebound or putback.

Keion Brooks Jr. is a top player in the country. He’s also a top athlete in the country. Long, lean, but bouncy and physical. Kind of a pogo stick type player who has an outstanding second jump and can slip through defenders.

Jesse Bingham is another top athlete in the state as a 6’5 wing who plays more like a guard. He’s so guard with his foot speed and quickness that he could guard multiple positions at the next level.  Solid with his leaping ability as well.
