The City Rankings series continues with a look at the top guards in the 2022 class. Here’s a look at the Top 10 guards in the Charlotte area.

#1 Jaden BradleyJadenBradley6'3" | PGIMG Academy | 2022State#9NationFL | 6’3 PG | Cannon School

Bradley is one of the top prospects in the state and in the nation in the 2022 class and for good reason after winning the NCISAA 4A State crown, Gatorade State Player of the Year and MaxPreps North Carolina Player of the Year in 2019-20 in just his sophomore season. He’ll be a top player in the Charlotte area to keep an eye on after putting 23 ppg, 7 rpg, 7 apg and 2.5 spg in their run to the state title. 

#2 Jalen Hood-SchifinoJalenHood-Schifino6'5" | PGMontverde Academy | 2022State#25NationFL | 6’5 G | Combine Academy

Hood-Schifino is a Pittsburgh commit that’s shown flashes of his abilities as a combo guard at Combine Academy. He’s a big guard that plays a bully-style when driving to the rim, absorbing contact for buckets in the paint. He’ll be fun to watch develop across the next few seasons on all three levels in the Charlotte area.
