Take Flight Challenge (Day 1 Standouts/Part 2)

REDONDO BEACH, CA—The Take Flight Challenge, hosted by Redondo Union High School, is chock full of outstanding teams and individual talent. The day started off with 2020 stud Julian Strawther showing off his elite shooting while the night ended with UCLA-bound Jaime Jaquez Jr. taking on Santa Margarita’s tandem of Jake Kyman (UCLA) and Max Agbonkpolo (USC). 

Justin Rene (Long Beach Poly)

2019, SG, 6-foot-2, 175 pounds

Joel’s Take: Rene had his scoring package rolling against Mission Bay. Pull-up 3s, finishing through contact, and playing physical defense were part of the exhibition at both ends of the floor. 

Xan Wesley (Redondo Union)

2019, CG, 6-foot-2, 160 pounds

Wesley is a late blooming guard who has a quick release.

Joel’s Take: After a strong outing at The Classic at Damien, Wesley continued his strong play at this event. He has a nice frame with broad shoulders and he possesses good quickness and speed. He converted a number of 3s and his release is quick. 

Boogie Ellis (Mission Bay)

2019, SG, 6-foot-2,
