The Border League took place last weekend. The event which took place throughout the Gilbert area featured over 80 teams. It also featured several under the radar players that played well. In this article, we rank our top 5 Sleepers from the event. 

  1. Carter Welling 6’10 PF Corner Canyon 2021 (#9PHU) (featured image) - Currently has D1 offers from Cal Poly, UC Irving, and Utah Valley St, however, there is probably more out there for a player of his size and skill level. Good rim runner, soft-touch decent R&J athlete.
  2. Calvin Schmeling 6’5 SG 2021 - Shout out to Northwest Nazarene assistant coach Chris Foss who first put Schmeling on my radar. He was correct as the lanky wing is going to be an absolute steal for any program he ends up at. Good scorer that can make shots, create and defend.
  3. Chris DockeryChrisDockery6'5" | SFBonanza | 2021 6’5 SF 2021 - Dockery is at 3 on this list only because I’m not quite sure if he’s a sleeper anymore. A long versatile defender with the athletic ability to finish in transition and guard multiple positions, Docker has become a high valued recruit over the last few months.

He has a good frame and can score from multiple levels. Played well all week for PH and I can see him becoming one of the top 3rd option players in Arizona.   Jake BlazonaJakeBlazona5'11" | PGSanta Margarita | 2021State 5’11 PG Santa Margarita (#99PHSC 2021) - If you’re looking for a winning basketball player then look no further. The fiesty PG plays with a chip on his shoulder to go along with a high IQ and good defensive toughness. Probably will end up being a small college school player that goes on to start 100 games in his career.  Follow Prep Hoops
