With a lot of basketball left to play be make that hard choice of choosing the front running candidates for MVP across the state.
Prep Hoops Mid-Season MVP
6’2 PG Richard Isaacs Jr. Richard Isaacs Jr. 6'2" | PG Prolific Prep | 2022 #25 Nation UT Wasatch Academy High School
The Class of 2022 PG has been solid as nails. He has been steady and ready for anything thus far. He is shooting the ball well off the bounce which makes defenders come up and defend higher and he takes advantage of that and goes to the basket. He is shifty and strong going to the cup. Pop Pop has multiple moves he can get to and he has multiple hot spots on the floor he can get to as well. He is one of the best guards in the country and is leaning towards one of the Blue Bloods in The University of Kansas.
6A Mid-Season MVP
6’8 SF Ethan Potter Ethan Potter 6'8" | SF Layton | 2021 State #194 Nation UT , Layton High School
Regardless of what happens the rest of the way Ethan has a fantastic resume. A State Championship could seal the deal but the kid is averaging 30 PPG and nearly a double-double every outing. He is seeing a lot of different looks from different teams and he still finds ways to score. The Utah valley University signee has been lights out. Ethan is a player that is dangerous with the ball in his hands everywhere on the floor now.
5A Mid-Season MVP
6’4 G Collin Chandler Collin Chandler 6'4" | CG Farmington | 2022 State #69 Nation UT , Farmington High School
This one was a tough one and will continue to change with 4 top candidates out there. Collin has started to really elevate his game that is giving him and his team a new demension. His movement without the ball has improved and his skill level continues to rise. Look for him to really step his game up now that region has started.
4A Mid-Season MVP
6’6 G Isaac Finlinson Isaac Finlinson 6'6" | CG Dixie | 2021 State UT , Dixie High School
This is another tough one as there are also 4 other players in the hunt as well. Isaac has transformed the most. He is now a lanky 6’6 multi-use player that can play all over the floor. He can run the PG position and he can also play some 3-4 as well depending on what is needed. His atletic ability is really starting to take shape as well. He’s a double-double and even triple-duble type player.
3A Mid-Season MVP
6’6 W Moroni-Seeley Roberts
Talk about coming out of nowhere, Moroni has been taking 3A by storm with his play and scoring ability. It often times seems like there are two of him on the floor at the same time. It might be because he has a twin brother that is having a great year as well. In 3A it is almost apparent that winning the State Championship will declare who takes the MVP trophy home.
