Every year I update the rankings and new players emerge. Either they moved into the state or simply put, they just improved their game.

These freshman are obviously players that I just haven’t seen yet since I don’t watch many middle school games. 


Here are 8 new faces in the freshman class from the AIA that will be joining the upcoming rankings. 

Oliver Hinder Oliver Hinder 6'8" | C Corona del Sol | 2023 State AZ PF 6’7 Corona del Sol

-A long and active defensive-minded player who moves fluidly in space. Mostly scores it inside but can step out with some success. Shot blocker with good timing. Big family lineage. 

Royce Ramos Royce Ramos 6'5" | PF Rancho Solano Prep | 2023 State AZ PF 6’5 Pinnacle 

-Highly skilled true power forward. Shoots 3's, handles the ball and can create his own shot. Tough inside to rebound and plays physical and smart. 

Julius Williams Julius Williams 6'4" | PF Ironwood | 2023 State AZ SF 6’3 Ironwood 

-Uber athletic JV star. Probably the youngest listed in the new rankings and scores from all 3 levels. High upside. 

Masaiah Binford Masaiah Binford 6'3" | SF South Mountain | 2023 State AZ SF 6’3 South Mountain 

-A JV/freshman stud can score it from anywhere. Dunks it easy and can handle it. 

Shane Williams Shane Williams 6'6" | PF South Mountain | 2023 State AZ PF 6’5 South Mountain 

-HS teammate is no
