Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 02/19/19 6:26 PM

The Class of 2021 is loaded and many of the top sophomores in the state are making big-time contributions for their teams as we go into the post-season. We have profiled many of these players (Nate Bittle, Ben Gregg, Nathan Rawlins-Kibonge, Wayne McKinney, Darius Gakwasi, Kamron Robinson), but there are several others in the class who will be vital towards their individual school's success in the playoffs. Here's a quick look (player's ranking in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2021 listed in parenthesis)

Damontae Burns, Parkrose (#8)

The 6-foot combo guard has always been able to score with his outside shot or his ability to create off the dribble, but Burns has been focused on leading an offense this season. He has successfully switched off at the point with Shawn Briggs for Parkrose and has also made a mark defensively with his quickness.

Drew Carter, Tigard (#9)

The 6-foot-2 guard is not only the sole underclassman getting serious playing time, Carter has also emerged as Tigard's second-leading scorer after Stevie Schlabach. He has a picture perfect jumper and also the athleticism to take it to the basket and score at the rim.

Trace Salton, Lake Oswego (#10)

The 6-foot-4 forward
