Basketball has always been a game where size matters, but with the way the game is trending with small ball the smaller guards are starting to make a comeback. There’s always been guys that can get it done despite not being the biggest, but it seems to me and many others that the small guards are making a comeback. With that being said, here’s a look at 7 small guards in the 2022 class to keep an eye on.

Knasir “Dug” McDaniel | 5’9” | Paul VI

McDaniel has been a staple for one of the top programs in the DMV and a nationally ranked team throughout the course of last year, and at 5’9” he’s the next in a long line of talented small guards from the DMV area. McDaniel is a flashy yet productive lead guard who sets the tone on both ends, has terrific passing and playmaking ability and he’s an absolute pest defensively that gets after it on both ends. He has quite the resume already as he’s been to many USA basketball events and has started for a WCAC powerhouse since he was a freshman.
