What 2019 point guards made the biggest leap in the latest PHI class rankings? We dive into the players that boosted their stock the most here!
Marquise Kennedy (Brother Rice)
Previous Ranking: #13
Current Ranking: #4
Kennedy continued the momentum that he had built in the spring right through the summer! The Brother Rice standout was steady, consistent, and productive running the show for the Illinois Wolves. With his athleticism he made plays in the lane both scoring and getting others involved.
Ray J Dennis (Oswego East)
Previous Ranking: #20
Current Ranking: #10
Dennis switched over to Team Rose in July and continued his buzz from the spring. He is a smooth combo guard that can shoot the basketball with ease from the perimeter. We came away very impressed after seeing him at the Spartz Invite Day where he was by far and away the most impressive prospect on the floor.
Treyvon Calvin (St. Viator)
Previous Ranking: #41
Current Ranking: #29
Calvin is a player that we probably had a little under ranked in the last update and now that is corrected. This St. Viator senior is a shooting point guard that has range on his shot and plays with poise. Was steady with Young & Reckless throughout the circuit.
Luke Yoder (Bloomington Central Catholic)
Previous Ranking: #177
Current Ranking: #63
Yoder was definitely one of the bigger stock risers at the position both from a ranking and college recruitment standpoint. Reports were that he shined with his high school team and he continued that in July with the Illinois Irish. Got others involved while being pretty consistent with his jumper.
Josh Berry (Lyons)
Previous Ranking: NR
Current Ranking: #86
Berry impressed in four separate settings (2 camps and 2 tournaments) when we saw him in July running the show for Mercury Elite’s second team. Berry is naturally a pass first guard that threads the needle. Was particularly effective hitting cutters on the move for layups. As a scorer he connected on some threes and also pushed it in the open floor.
Payton Havens (Metamora)
Previous Ranking: #195
Current Ranking: #128
Havens is a tough as nails floor general that is in the Lou Griffith mold from a few years back! The Metamora point guard is a pass first guard that pushes it in transition and makes quick passes. Can make an occasional three point shot.
