Prep Hoops highlighted several of the top 17U guards at the Midwest Grind Session, including Max AlexanderMaxAlexander6'0" | PGBuhler | 2021StateKS, Tre Alexander, Daron Davis, Jayden GarrisonJaydenGarrison6'1" | CGLittle River | 2021StateKS, Jack JohnsonJackJohnson6'2" | CGAndover | 2021StateKS and Dawson ZengerDawsonZenger6'2" | CGRock Creek | 2021StateKS.

Devin Araujo-McKendrickDevinAraujo-McKendrick6'0" | CGDerby | 2021StateKS, TBB Hays, Derby:
