With buzz beginning to pick up around the approaching season, many players will be looking to lead their schools to success this season. This series will review my initial 15 players to watch as potential MVP candidates in the 757 this season. While this list will obviously be subject to change as the season begins and progresses, right now in my opinion these players have the best cases as MVP candidates. When considering this list, my criteria included considering their resumes and their current projected team situation.

4. Jaylani DardenJaylaniDarden6'3" | CGNorview | 2021StateVA | 6’5 PG 2021 | Norview

Why: He grew on top of already being one of the premier guards in the state. At 6’5, Darden will find not many squads are capable of matching up with a guard with his physical gifts. Darden is a proven scorer who can drop 20 on you in his sleep. With multiple seniors leaving this Norview squad, Darden has every opportunity to dominate the court in his final season at Norview. I expect at least 20ppg from this lead guard on top of a handful of assists and rebounds.
