The point guard group in 2022 is a pretty solid one with multiple D1 prospects. Here’s a look at the best of the bunch at the point guard position in the Junior class.
|Name||High School||Height||Grassroots Team||Notes|
|Christian SpaldingChristianSpalding6'1" | PGEastern | 2022StateKY||Eastern||6’1||Manimal Elite||A heady floor general, Spalding is going to be expected to run the team at Eastern this season and could solidify himself as the top Junior in Louisville with a good year.|
|Jordan AkalJordanAkal6'0" | PGHarlan | 2022StateKY||Harlan||6'0||One of the best pure scorers in Kentucky, Akal has become even bigger and more athletic in the last year and is a no doubt D1 guard.|

Name High School Height Grassroots Team Notes Christian SpaldingChristianSpalding6'1" | PGEastern | 2022StateKY Eastern 6’1 Manimal Elite A heady floor general, Spalding is going to be expected to run the team at Eastern this season and could solidify himself as the top Junior in Louisville with a good year. Jordan AkalJordanAkal6'0" | PGHarlan | 2022StateKY Harlan 6'0 One of the best pure scorers in Kentucky, Akal has become even bigger and more athletic in the last year and is a no doubt D1 guard. Turner ButtryTurnerButtry5'10" | PGBowling Green | 2022StateKY Bowling Green 5’10 Manimal Elite Armed with a high basketball IQ and the ability to knock down shots from all over the court, Buttry is one of the most consistent players in the class. Jaxon SmithJaxonSmith6'0" | PGLincoln County | 2022StateKY Lincoln County 6’0 Jaxon can be electric one game and average the next. Once he gets more consistent from one game to the next, he should have several college offers coming his way. Miles FranklinMilesFranklin6'2" | PGTrinity | 2022StateKY Trinity 6’2 Griffin Elite After missing chunks of the last two high school seasons with injury, Franklin is back and working his way back to being a top player in the class. Darien LewisDarienLewis5'11" | PGFern Creek | 2022StateKY Fern Creek 5’11 Griffin Elite Shifty and a great finisher, Lewis plays hard on both ends of the floor. His ballhandling can get a little loose but he will make up for any turnovers by sprinting to get back. A very solid guard. Aden SloneAdenSlone5'9" | PGGeorge Rogers Clark | 2022StateKY George Rogers Clark 5’9 Starz United An excellent passer who excels in the open court, Slone is a talented lead guard. His transfer to GRC should be interesting as he'll likely play off the ball some and be counted on to make shots. Brian GriffithBrianGriffith5'9" | PGOwensboro Catholic | 2022StateKY Owensboro Catholic 5’9 Hoop Dreams Another shifty point, he can kick it into high gear and really push the pace on offense. A bit of a volume shooter, Griffith can play solid on ball defense and create his own offense. Danye FrazierDanyeFrazier5'11" | PGMadisonville-North Hopkins | 2022StateKY Madisonville-North Hopkins 5’11 Madisonville Elite After waiting two years for his turn, Frazier should get to play with the ball in his hands most of the time for the next two years. New coach Jon Newton will rely on Danye to run his team. Brady DingessBradyDingess5'11" | PGMartin County | 2022StateKY Martin County 5’11 Big Shots (WV) Dingess remains a bit of a mystery as he puts up big numbers against mountain teams but had very mixed results against non-mountain competition at the KOB and Traditional Bank Classic last season.
