Last week PHI was invited to a workout series hosted by trainer Stan Boateng. From the workouts we saw some of the best players in the class of 2022. Today we look at the guards who made an impression.

DJ Bates 6’1 De La Salle

A smooth scoring guard who attacked using both hands as weapons. DJ finishes well at the rim with some creativity which he used when he had bigger defenders in front of him. Bates also was able to step out and knock a couple of shots down in the process. DJ is a solid scoring threat the next two years for De la Salle.

Brown had some good moments in game action. A tenacious defender he moves his feet well staying in front of ball handlers often. Offensively he can shoot the ball from deep. Jalen has a really good one dribble pull up from mid-range that can be effective off ball screens. He and DJ Bates will be very good complementary duo the next 2 years for the Meteors.
