Conference Preview

Posted On: 09/3/20 5:44 PM

In a new series of articles, I will look at players currently ranked outside of the top 50(ish) that are worth a look for schools of all different levels. With Division 1 down to NWAC schools subscribed to our site, this provides prospects that aren’t clear cut  HM D1 kids a chance to be recognized. In the following list, Division 2, Division 3, NAIA and JUCO schools will be able to find several names that are worth taking a look at. 

2021 6’0 PG Squeeky Johnson Squeeky Johnson 6'0" | PG Skyview | 2021 State WA (Skyview HS) – Johnson has long been on our radar and for good reason. His basketball IQ, toughness and ability to find open teammates is impressive. I first saw him playing for the Rose City Rebels years ago and he impressed back then. He could be a really solid pickup at the point guard position for the right school. 

2021 6’5 PG Xavier Bailey Xavier Bailey 6'4" | PG Lindbergh | 2021 State WA (Lindbergh HS) – One of the most underrated point guards in the state. Bailey is long, wiry strong and makes plays on both sides of the ball. He grew up playing on Rotary’s loaded 2021 group and his experience playing at a high level for so long is apparent on the floor. When he is all the way locked in, he is a tough two-way guard and still growing and filling out. A potential late bloomer special. 

2021 6’4 PG Steven Westermeyer Steven Westermeyer 6'4" | PG Kamiakin | 2021 State WA (Kamiakin HS) – This 6’4 point guard is one of my favorite players to watch outside of the top 10 in the state. Westermeyer has great size, strength, handles and vision in his 6’4 frame. He helped Kamiakin to the 3A state tourney this past season and is hoping to make an even deeper run this upcoming season. A super solid player that could help programs at multiple levels. 

2021 6’0 PG Jose Reyes Jose Reyes 6'0" | PG Davis | 2021 State WA (Davis HS) – Davis High School stays with tough and overlooked players and Reyes is the next one up. He excels on both sides of the ball as scorer and defender. He is capable of going off for 30 points at the high school level, while also blocking some shots or grabbing some steals.
