The high school season is here and we have hit a little bit of a stalemate with commitments but there might be some movement on the horizon. At the end of each month throughout the season, we will be diving into those players still on the board and looking at who fits where. Things can change in the span of a week so each month should provide us with a whole new view on the landscape.

Today, we are looking at the 2019 shooting guard and the players still remaining on the board. We list the DI, DII, NAIA, and DIII targets. As a note, these are based off of where we think the player will excel at the highest level. Players will get recruited above and below the level we have them listed for but it is our estimation that these are where they would succeed the most.

Already Off The Board:
There has been a little movement for those coming off the board as now Clemson commit Alex Hemenway joins the club.  That gives five commits from the Shooting Guard spots to DI programs including three high-majors.  Might see one of two before the next edition of these lists.

DI Targets Still On The Board:

With Hemenway coming off the board, there is only one person left to put up here and that is Simon Banks. The 6’2 guard is sitting in the same spot as a month ago. Could still be in line for some new schools to get involved and at Brebeuf Jesuit, should get enough visibility if he plays well.

DII Targets Still On The Board:

No changes to this level as Hensley remains the one option to take a look at. I’m big on the upside of the skill and could turn into something. Not sure there will be any movement in or out of this level in the next month as they seems to be a clear line with those players still remaining on the board.

NAIA Targets Still On The Board:

Again, no movement outside of Hemenway so you still have a plethora of options to look at.  Zane Gross and Cory Richards have had good starts so far. Look for a big month from a few of these guys as they start to separate themselves.  Still, you have a lot of different types of players like shooters with Comer, Gross, and Bufkin and creators like Penny, Hales, and Richards. Just depends on what you are looking for.

DIII Targets Still On The Board:

Still a ton of options here and we do expect some movement. Looking at guys like Connor Jones, Max Chaplin, Brian Miller, and others as potential guys that could move up a level, just need to get some eyes on them. Highly doubt anyone expect maybe Simon Banks up above to commit in the next month so all the targets should still be around.
