Jake Layman (Sergeant Bluff-Luton) -- No. 26

As a key piece on the state’s top-ranked, Layman -- a 6’7 forward -- was a shoo-in to make a high debut on this list. The Warriors players pride themselves in taking smart shots and it shows with Layman’s shooting percentages, 53 percent from the floor and 41 percent from deep. That size and shooting ability are a rare combo. 


Emarion Ellis (Davenport Central) -- No. 30

Davenport Central has been one of the best teams in Iowa this season, and it features a cast of breakout players. Emarion Ellis has made a huge splash with the team, going for 10 points per game. Any sophomore making that big of an impact on a top 4A team can be considered one of the state's best.


Spencer Mackey (LeMars) -- No. 34

This sharpshooting sophomore has canned 45 3s this season, and has made them at an impressive 43 percent clip. His 15.9 points per game are the fifth-best among sophomores in Class 3A.
