Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at several point guards who have raised their profile over the past year and have risen up the latest 2019 rankings.
Keyon Thomas, 5’10, PG, 2019, Bonner Springs
The only thing holding Thomas back is a slender frame and his listed 5;10 height. He is among the fastest players with the ball that you’ll see as he has the ability to go end-to-end in a blink of an eye. He has the ability to break down opponents and get all the way to the basket and finish in traffic or set up teammates for easy opportunities. He is a big time winner and competitor and brings a leadership to the floor. He needs to tighten up his outside shooting but he has other wise shot up the rankings to No. 7 overall in his class.
Cevin Clark, 5’11, PG, 2019, Arkansas City
Clark has mostly been known up to this point for his shooting and scoring abilities, but he has become a well-rounded guard and now has the ability to play either guard spot, thus earning a spot in the Kansas’ top 25. He is still an elite shooter and shows the ability to score points in a hurry when needed.
Johnny Murdock, 5’10, PG, 2019, Wichita Southeast
Known mostly for his outside shooting and ability to make shots, Murdock has become a true point guard, able of handling the ball under pressure, getting a team into its offense and running the show. He is able to get to the basket a little off the bounce and is terrific at setting up his fellow teammates as well.
TJ Williams-Bey, 5’11, PG, 2019, Piper
Williams-Bey has a long, rangy frame and brings good athleticism and a well-rounded skill set to the floor. He can handle it and create his own shot and likes to get to the basket where he uses good agility to finish tough chances in the paint.
