There are a vast amount of talented guards in the country and in Florida, we see leaders all over the place.
Part 2: Here is a look at five sophomore guards who have been flying under the radar.
2019 – Part 1, Part 2
2020 – Part 1, Part 2
2021 – Part 1
Jonathan Renois (Somerset)
At 5’11”, Renois is a thickly built guard with blazing feet. A pure athlete, he’ll surprise you with his attacking ability and awareness around the rim. Good in transition and a high IQ passer, Renois is in for a nice sophomore campaign at Somerset.
King Winkfield (Booker)
Winkfield is a dangerous outside shooter. First and foremost, the 5’10” guard gets his work in from long range. He’s best as a catch and shoot guy but Winkfield can mix it up as a mid-range jump shooter as well. Booker is going to be using him quite a bit to rack up points.
Jason Simpson (Oxbridge)
Playing sparingly off the bench a season ago, Simpson is a player to keep a close eye on as a sophomore at Oxbridge. The 5’10” guard is awfully crafty near the cup and he’s able to get out in transition on his own dribbling and off feeds up the court.
Alex Vigo (Bartow)
A true point guard, Vigo is a blazer and a kid who likes to drive and kick. The 5’11” athlete plays older than his current age and at times last year was a true backcourt leader. Look for Vigo to continue to flourish in transition play and near the rim.
Tarence Guinyard (Atlantic Coast)
A sharpshooter and fast paced player, Guinyard is always setting up shop for Atlantic Coast. The 5’11” guard is a nice jump shooter and a guy who likes to mix it up as a passer. Expect a steady campaign for the riser.
