On Friday night I attended the 5A Ironwood Eagles at 5A Sunnyslope Vikings. 


Here were 10 observations from the three games I viewed:

#1 Ironwood freshman class may be the best in the state. 

#2 One freshman from Sunnyslope stood out in the freshman game.

Benjamin Maloney SF 6’2 2023 Sunnyslope 

-A long and lean scoring wing. He has a pretty jumper and a nice floater. He is a very good passer and can rebound plus block shots. 

#3 One soph stood out from Sunnyslope in the JV game. 

Quinn Thompson SF 6’5 2022 Sunnyslope

-Arguably the most unique prospect I have scouted in awhile. Super long and gets downhill with ease. He handles it decently and uses his freaky wingspan to set up his layups. He rebounds at a high level and is very disruptive with blocks and steals. He made one mid-range jumper but 95% of his work is getting to the rim with his unique layup package. 

#4 Three freshman stood out from Ironwood in the freshman game. 

Jordan Jones SG 6’0 2023 Ironwood 

-Thicker wing who can score it from inside and out. He has a nice floater game
