With June basketball wrapping up, many high school players will transition to club ball. Utah Basketball Club, UBC, has been renowned as one of the top club teams in the state over the years. This year is no different as they have a number of talented prospects in their program.
Schriver is the most known prospect on this roster in the high school realm. The knockdown shooter got the opportunity to play early for Roy. He did not disappoint as he shot the ball at a good level and will be ready to have a bigger role next season. He brings that experience to this group and leads them in scoring.
Gardner is still working on his motor and footwork. With that said, when he gets going, he is capable of dominating most games. He has good length and a decent touch around the rim.
Hutchings manages the tempo of the game well and shoots the basketball well from deep. As he continues to improve his ability to score from all 3 levels, his stock will rise.
Banks has done a good job of extending the floor from 3 at the PF spot. In addition to being a good shooter, he has demonstrated an ability to put the basketball on the floor and attack the rim.
Phipps demonstrated good athleticism for UBC in the spring. He is not a polished product at this point. However, he has good athleticism and a lot of upside.
Ashby is a proven playmaker at the varsity level. He does much of the same for UBC. He attacks the rim well and makes good reads. His playmaking ability is huge for this team as he scores it well and puts his teammates in spots where they can be successful.
DowDell is one of the best scorers in the state. His ability to let it fly from anywhere makes him an intriguing prospect at the next level. He shot the basketball extremely well for UBC in the spring.
Frank is a versatile prospect who has NCAA Division-I abilities. Frank will have a huge impact for Jordan and UBC in their respective seasons. He is a big man with a smooth touch from 3 and in the paint.
Tiniauarii is strong and athletic. He is a capable shooter who can use his strength and athleticism to get to the rim at will. Further, he is a good on ball defender who does a good job on the glass.
Akina does a good job managing the tempo of the game and making good decisions with the basketball. He is not an elite level scorer, but he facilitates well and does not make many mistakes with the ball.
Brenchley has received the opportunity to be the primarily ball handler with UBC at times this past spring, and he did well in that role. Due to his size and skill set, he fills the stat sheet up. He is a good defender and rebounder who can create for himself and others.
Cuff is one of the biggest moves this off-season. He has good length and can shoot the basketball extremely well from deep. Him partnering with another big man who can shoot, Isaac Johnson, should be intriguing to watch. Cuff brings good size and shooting to UBC.
Jeppson protects the paint and cleans up the glass for UBC. He adds length to a club team that has good size. As the last resort, due to being the rim protector, Jeppson has learned to rotate well in help side.
Allfrey might be the best overall scorer on this team. While DowDell hits tough shots and shoots it well from deep, Allfrey can score the ball well from most places on the court. He uses his size well and has a soft touch around the rim.
