Here’s a look at the loaded point guard group in the Sophomore class. Name High School Height Grassroots Team Notes Grant WhitakerGrantWhitaker6'1" | PGMurray | 2023StateKY Murray 6’1 Kentucky Bears One of the best scorers in the class. Big time shooter who made 44% of his threes last season. Colin PorterColinPorter5'10" | PGAshland | 2023StateKY Ashland 5’10 EAB (TN) 16u Shifty playmaker who can finish or create open looks for others. Been starting varsity since 2019 season at Elliott County. Dallas RobertsDallasRoberts6'1" | PGNorth Oldham | 2023StateKY North Oldham 6’1 Manimal Elite Versatile scorer who enters his third year as a starter. Growth spurt will help his college stock. Could be one of the top guards in the 8th region this season. George Washington IIIGeorgeWashington III6'2" | PGChristian Academy Louisville | 2023StateKY Christian Academy Louisville 6’2 Manimal Elite Recent transfer into Kentucky was an all state player in Texas last season and could end up being the top 2023 in Kentucky this year. His current ranking is more of a placeholder until we see how good he really is. Jack EdelenJackEdelen5'9" | PGBallard | 2023StateKY Ballard 5’9 A high IQ floor general with a high skill level, Edelen is the engine that makes the Bruins offense go. Jack has a knack for making tough shots. Zamareon McCownZamareonMcCown5'6" | PGPleasure Ridge Park | 2023StateKY Pleasure Ridge Park 5’6 Quinns Anvils Wired to score, "Zee" had some huge scoring games last season and a big AAU season this summer. Should play with the ball in his hands a lot more as a Sophomore Nick SpaldingNickSpalding5'10" | PGPaul Laurence Dunbar | 2023StateKY Paul Laurence Dunbar 5’11 Kentucky Future Elite One of the top young guards in the city of Lexington, Spalding earned a starting role last season and has shown the ability to score or facilitate for others. Bradin NelsonBradinNelson6'1" | PGWebster County | 2023StateKY Webster County 6’1 Bradin is likely to be one of the top scorers for Webster this season after a reserve role last year. If he continues growing and developing, he could be a contender for 2nd region player of the year as a Senior. Kyran TilleyKyranTilley5'11" | PGMale | 2023StateKY Male 6’0 Louisville Defenders Another floor general type of point guard, Kyran is a part of a loaded 2023 group for the Bulldogs. Trent HinkleTrentHinkle5'11" | PGWestern | 2023StateKY Western 5’10 Got more playing time as a freshman than about every 2023 guard in Louisville last season and will be battle tested as he grows and continues improving. Sal DeanSalDean5'9" | PGBelfry | 2023StateKY Belfry 5’9 West Virginia Generals Small but shifty, Dean is pretty unknown at this point since he plays in the mountains and plays AAU out of state. Be interested to see him go head to head against other guards on this list. Isaiah CookIsaiahCook5'8" | PGEastern | 2023StateKY Eastern 5’10 Played a small role for Eastern as a freshman and should see more minutes as a Sophomore. Athletic and shifty, he can make plays at the varsity level. Eli JohnsonEliJohnson6'0" | PGMenifee County | 2023StateKY Menifee County 6’0 Kentucky Select A double figure scorer as a freshman, expect him to be more of a go-to scorer as a Sophomore. Hard worker who will maximize his potential.
