Here is a look at some of the top Class of 2021 guards from last weekend’s Hardwood Classic II in Lawrence, KS.
Steve Strong, Jr. 6’0″ MoKan Elite (University Academy)
A strong young point guard who plays with a lot of pace and uses his physical strength to get where he wants to go. He goes to the basket hard and can finish well at the rim among the bigs. He is also a pretty stout defender with his athleticism and strength.
Lavar Felder 6’3″ Dominators 16U (St. Joseph Central)
A very skilled young wing who has a chance to develop into an excellent prospect down the road. He is long and he handles the ball well and can make plays for himself and his teammates. He has a solid perimeter jumper and he can score around the basket. When he gains physical strength,he will be a real problem.
Nicholas Bryant 6’0″ KC Blue Chips (Park Hill)
A hard-driving combo guard who comes off the bench and brings the energy at both ends of the court. When he gets the ball, he is bringing it strong to the basket whether he is in transition or in the half court. His motor runs strong at both ends of the court.
Joey Rembecki 6’2″ Express Elite (Helias)
A very solid shooting guard who plays with a lot of poise. He can handle the ball and he can knock down shots from 3-point territory. He also moves well without the ball and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes.
Anthony Hill 6’2″ KC Blue Chips (Park Hill)
The long young wing player did a nice job coming off the bench and providing some excellent 3-point shooting. If a team was playing zone, he was the one who was going to bust it with his perimeter shooting. Also saw him at the Mizzou Team Camp and liked his versatility on both ends.
Quay Jeter 5’10” Dominators 16U (St. Joe Christian)
A solid young point guard who took over the reins as a freshman and helped led his team to a Class 1 district championship game berth. He is a good ball handler who will distribute the basketball and make open shots. Playing a year up at 16U, he displayed good poise as the floor leader.
