As we continue coverage of the Top 250 Expo, today I highlight my best performers from the 2022 and 2023 class at the Point Guard position. Many of these players are names you’ve heard before and they are much deserving as they’ve earned respect with their style of play, athleticism, scoring capabilities, and distribution skillset. Here are my top 6 from Saturday.

JJ SimmonsJJSimmons5'10" | PGBeechcroft | 2022StateOH (2022) Beechcroft 6’0- Simmons is a lethal shooter and demands defensive respect on the perimeter. Has the green light to shoot from anywhere on the wing. Creates opportunities for himself with the dribble setup and off-ball movement. Could transition into a SG at the collegiate level.

Luke DenbowLukeDenbow6'1" | PGAshland | 2022StateOH (2022) Ashland 6’1- Denbow is incredibly fast with the ball in his hands and truly one of the best under-the-radar PGs in the 2022 class. Sets up teammates with good confident passing. Quick decision maker capable of punishing with his blow by speed and finishing capabilities. 

Lawrent RiceLawrentRice6'3" | PGWayne | 2023State#61NationOH (2023) Wayne 6’3- Rice continues to explode on the scene and show why he is the state’s 2nd best prospect overall. Used his 6’3 frame and athleticism to completely overpower opposing guards on Saturday.
