As coaches continue to look towards the 2019 class, we are seeing more and more players making a case for themselves to be able to continue their playing careers after high school. This is a short list of certain players that stood out from the NorCal Spring Showcase.
6’2, Sg, Oreon Courtney, 2019, West Albany High School, Active PCH Leaders 17u
A long and athletic slasher who is very aggressive in transition. Deceptively explosive and able to play above the rim when necessary. Capable scorer at all three levels and shows nice touch on floaters in the paint.
6’7, Sg, Alexandre Saleh, 2019, Prolific Prep, NBBA HGSL (HoopGroup Showcase League)
This kid is a lights out shooter with a high arc and long wingspan. High motor who talks CONSTANTLY on both ends of the floor. Competes Defensively and doesn’t foul. His very high I.Q allow him to be a solid passer/playmaker.
6’2, Pg, Jacob Sharp, 2019, Jesse Bethel High, NBBA 17u HGSL (Hoopgroup showcase league)
Floor general with great change of pace off of the bounce as well as being an intelligent cutter. Great I.Q. and ability to think ahead allow him to impact the game in subtle areas. Very good shooter who defends well and plays with patience at all times.
6’1, Sg, Sinjin Speer, 2019, Clayton Valley Charter, Lakeshow 17’s Black
Southpaw sniper with a quick release and deep range. One of the best shooters in the event. Very skilled passer who uses his High I.Q. to allow him to never be out of place defensively. Also a very capable player off of the dribble.
6’3, Pg, Joshua Vasquez, 2019, Bishop Montgomery High School, California Stars 17’s Elite
Very good shooter. Very skilled floor general who can by defenders at will and shows the ability to make teammates better as well. Has a ton of length at his position that helps him effect the game on both ends of the floor.
6’2, Pg, Jalen Washington, 2019, Bishop Montgomery, California Stars 17u Platinum
Skilled and powerful point guard who is tough to guard one on one with and ability to bounce defenders off of his frame while slashing to the rim. Strong Court vision allows him to find open teammates as well.
6’1, Pg, Joseph White, 2019, Skyridge High, Salt Lake Metro 17 Black
Tremendous passing vision and understanding of the game in all of its aspects. A relentless competitor who is an absolutely lethal shooter from deep. Very difficult to guard off of the dribble by changing speeds and playing at the pace he desires.
