Prep Hoops Missouri takes a look at some of the top point guards in the Class of 2021.

Anton Brookshire 6’1″ Kickapoo: One of the top point guards in the state, regardless of class. Stepped in as a freshman and made a big impact for the Chiefs. Had an excellent summer playing up at the 16U level for Yanders Law. Already has a number of Division I offers.

Isaac Haney 5’10” Dora: He flourished in his first year of varsity basketball by averaging 22 points a game and leading the Falcons to a Class 1 district championship. A combo guard with nice handles who can get buckets.

Xavier Sykes 5’6″ Helias: Talented small southpaw who is a bucket-getter with the ability to score from all three levels. Keeps defenders off balance with his speed and ability to change directions.

Jeremiah Walker 6’1″ DeSmet: Athletic combo guard who broke into the starting lineup as a freshman and averaged eight points and nearly three assists a game.

Steve Strong, Jr. 6’0″ University Academy: A physical young guard who is appropriately named with his ability to play through contact and get to the basket.

Colby Baggett 6’2″ Lee’s Summit West: A long, athletic combo guard who can get to the basket and finish at the rim with ease. Plays with a lot of pace and poise.

Anthuai Ding 6’1″ North Kansas City: A solid all around point guard who excels at both ends of the floor. He has quick hands and will hound you defensively. He is strong on the dribble with the ability to finish at the rim.

Ilyaas Harris 5’9″ Marquette: A slick pass-first point guard who plays with a lot of poise and savvy on both ends of the court. He runs the show and makes pinpoint passes.

Quran Taylor 6’1″ University Academy: Good sized point guard who can pass the ball, score from inside and out and rebound well for his position.

Roddy Alexander 5’10” Christian-O’Fallon: Aggressive young point guard who averaged 10 points and two assists as a freshman in helping Christian to a district championship and a berth in the Class 3 state quarterfinals.

Brendan Deters 6’1″ Troy: The latest in a line of talented Deters brothers to play high school basketball, Brendan has a nice set of handles and can knock down 3-pointers.

Trevon Love 5’10” Jennings: Quick young guard who figures to step into a bigger role after seeing some reserve minutes on a Class 4 Final Four team last season. He’s good at breaking down defenders off the dribble.
