Francisco’s Finest: Class of 2022 Improvements (Shooting Guards)

LONG BEACH, CA—After breaking down the Classes of 2020 and 2021, it is now time to dive into the Class of 2022. Unlike the previous classes where there were can’t miss prospects like Evan Mobley, Ziaire Williams, BJ Boston, Josh Christopher from the Class of 2020 and Peyton Watson from the Class of 2021, the Class of 2022 doesn’t appear to have “that guy” just yet, but they still have plenty of time. Kijani Wright is the most polished prospect thus far, but Amari Bailey and Koat Keat have the most upside in my opinion. Going forward it would not surprise me to see this list change in the coming seasons.

Chol Deng (Fairmont Prep)

6-foot-4, 165 pounds

Deng is a live athlete with ball skills and non-stop motor

Joel’s Take: Deng is a wiry scoring guard who can slash to the basket with the best of them. He  is a quick athlete with solid ball skills and his overall offensive game is evolving. His first step is quick and he knows how to manuever around defenders.
