It’s been a different summer so far to say the least in the world of high school basketball. Grassroots events have largely gotten underway in some parts of the country while others are still on hold. A lot of players have been missing out on a time when they’d usually have ample opportunities to showcase their game for college coaches.

With events still pretty much on hold here in California, I’ve used the time to watch film on players that I haven’t quite watched in depth before. Here’s a group of players from the Class of 2021 that I’ve seen through film that could be players to look out for this upcoming season. I’ll have more groupings of players throughout this month.

1. Cristian Butler – Dominguez

Butler is a solid lead guard who should have a very strong year as one of the team leaders. He is strong when making a move to the rim; handles the ball well and can finish in the paint over the defense. Absorbs contact. Keeps the ball moving on offense and looks for his teammates. Good defensive player both on and off ball. Gets up in offensive player’s face. Solid in transition.
