After reviewing the last month of the AAU season there were some players that improved their play and are worth keeping an eye on for the upcoming season. These players are looking to make an impact at their schools during their sophomore season and improve their stock. Here are a list of the most improved players out of the class of 2021.
Lucky Hampton – Salesian HS 6’1′ PG
Hampton showed his growth as a point guard and is starting to become a pretty good two way player. He will have a tough task competing for a chance to play for Salesian but his improved play gives him a chance.
Isaac Montgomery – Vanden HS 5’8′ PG
Isaac played hard for a talented Team Arsenal 15u team over the summer and will be looking to play a bigger role at Vanden this season. Expect a sophomore breakout season from him this year.
Derrick O’Neal – Ceres HS 5’8′ PG
O’Neal has a high ceiling and is a skilled point guard with a high basketball IQ. He has a worked hard on improving his body and his outside shot as he looks to lead Ceres into the playoffs.
Jaden Alexander – St. Patrick-St. Vincent’s HS 6’3′ SG
Jaden might be the most underrated player out of this class in Northern California. He is long and athletic, attacks the basket really well, is improving his outside shot, as well as his ball handling. Expect a lot out of him for the Bruins this year during his first year at the varsity level.
Matthew Elliott – Jesse Bethel HS PG 5’9′
Elliott is an excellent shooter and moves well without the ball. He will look to provide outside shooting to a senior heavy Bethel team.
