PrepHoops Texas presents volume two of the live period report. This article features twelve guards that college coaches need to check out this weekend during the live period. Here are the prospects below:
Rubin Jones / 6’4” / SG / Cooz Elite / 2020
Jones is a guard that can play the one through three. Jones passing ability gives him even more added value because he can find open teammates in transition or in the half court.
Mike Miles / 6’2″ / PG / Texas Titans / 2020
Miles is a strong ball handler with a football player frame that plays the game at a good tempo and knows how to get to his spots for scoring opportunities.
Latrell Jossell / 5’10” / PG / YGC36 / 2020
Jossell is a fast guard that can beat people in transition with the ball in his hands for easy baskets at the rim or make the extra pass to his teammate. Jossell has a nice pull-up jumper and has the ability to break down others at the lead guard spot.
Jaylin Posey / 6’3” / PG / Texas Legion Elite / 2020
Posey is an athletic guard that utilizes his dribble to get by players at an efficient rate from the top of the key. He is an ultra competitor that takes pride on both ends of the floor.
Imo Essien / 6’0″ / PG / Texas Impact 4:13 / 2021
Essien is playing up on 17u with Texas Impact 4:13 where he runs the show for the talented UA Rise team. Essien has a tight handle and knows how to use his change of pace and use nifty crossovers to get the defenders off balance. Essien could see his recruitment take off if he plays well this weekend.
Jahari Long / 6’4″ / PG / Cooz Elite / 2020
Long is probably the best passing guard on this list. The Houston guard can really see the floor and knows where his teammates need the ball for easy baskets. Coaches that need a floor general who is under control and can run a team at a high-level need to recruit this young man.
Julian Larry / 6’2″ / PG / Marcus Smart YGC36 (Adidas) / 2020
Larry is a facilitating athletic guard that knows how to get others involved and will play hellacious on the ball defense on the opposing player.
Jamal Shead / 6’1 / PG / Nike Drive Nation (EYBL) / 2020
Shead has probably been the hottest player on this list because he went from unknown to being a household name in a year. Shead is one of the best on the ball defenders in the country. The broad-shouldered point guard is a strong attacker that has good speed at the lead guard spot.
K.J. Pruitt / 6’4” / Combo / Urban DFW Elite (Adidas) / 2020
Pruitt has good height and a nice build for his position. Pruitt has athleticism, good handles, solid passer and can knock down jumpers out to the three. He has a chance to see his recruitment pick up if he has a strong weekend.
Braelon Bush / 5’6” / PG / Nike Houston Hoops (EYBL) / 2020
Bush is a small guard that can really get it going offensively. He may be undersized but that doesn’t stop the tough guard from Houston from hitting jumpers and using his quickness to blow by defenders.
Jake Milkereit / 6’4” / SG / Nike Drive Nation (EYBL) / 2020
Milkereit is one of the best shooters in the state. The two-guard out of the DFW knows how to move without the ball and has good balance and elevation on his jumpshot.
Shamir Bogues / 6’3” / SG / G.A.T.A / 2020
Bogues is a combination guard that has a nose for putting the ball in the basket on all three levels. Bogues has a lean frame and deceptive athleticism that allows him to get to the second and third level on offense.
