The class of 2022 is one of the most talented the Louisiana has seen it some time. No position is that more apparant then at the guard position. These six guards below have seen their stock rise either through their work during the season or grassroots play. While they may have risen now, this group is probably not done moving up.

#9 Alexzaye JohnsonAlexzayeJohnson6'1" | PGHelen Cox | 2022StateLA | 6’2" | Helen Cox (Previous rank #20)

Johnson had one of the better summers of any guard in the class.  He was the starting point guard for LivOn Fleur-de-lis and was one of the best defenders on the team.  Johnson was able to get players into offensive sets and he did good job pushing the pace in transition.  Improving his outside game will be a need of his going forward.  When he does that, we may be looking at a sure fire, mid-major talent.  

#12 Joseph ManningJosephManning6'3" | CGBossier | 2022StateLA | 6’3" | Bossier (Previous rank #21) - pictured above

Manning had a summer that put people on notice.  He was already a hard-nosed defender who took on tough shooting guards and wings.  Over the summer, his offensive game is blossomed.
