Before the Fall evaluation period begins, here are a list of prospects that are committed  or are garnering Division I interest, including supreme scorer Javonte Johnson (Chauncey Billups Elite). In addition, stock raisers including the multi-faceted point guard Ty Ty Washington (Firestorm Elite) opened the eyes of college coaches near and far. 

Javonte Johnson (Cheyenne Mtn/CO)

2020, SG, 6-foot-5, 190 pounds

Ben Ramirez (Beverly Hills)

2020, PG, 6-foot, 155 pounds

Joel’s Take: Ramirez was a pleasant surprise this summer due to his aggressive playing
