Forget school classification. Forget size of school. This feature will only look at location.  Who are the best guards in Rutherford County?

 

Included Teams
1. Blackman*
2. Lancaster Christian
3. Murfreesboro Central Magnet*
4. Riverdale*
5. Smyrna*
6. Eagleville*
7. LaVergne
8. Oakland*
9. Rockvale*
10. Stewarts Creek*
11. Franklin Road Christian
12. Middle Tennessee Christian*
13. Providence Christian*
14. Siegel*

{16} Jack Jubenville Jack Jubenville 5'10" | PG Middle Tennessee Christian School | 2021 State TN , Middle Tennessee Christian (2021)

Slick handles.  Jack is a gym rat capable of creating his own shot. There are quite a few players with his makeup, point guard prospects that effectively play off the ball too.  Beyond high school, JJ must be evaluated as a point guard.  Check out a highlight of his.

 

{17} Brennon Hagewood, LaVergne (2023)

The outside shooting touch of Hagewood sets him apart from others on this list.  Hagewood’s feet are a plus though he desperately needs to improve his lateral quickness in order to become a solid perimeter defender. Likely to mature into a combo guard. 

{T-18} Kevarius Martin Kevarius Martin 6'3" | PG Blackman | 2021 State TN and Jabahri Mastin Jabahri Mastin 6'2" | SG Blackman | 2021 State TN , Blackman (2021’s)

The two senior guards do different things.  Kev is a ball-handler with quicks.  Jabahri is a fantastic catch-and-shoot guy.  Both have limitations.  Martin turns the ball over a touch to much and Mastin doesn’t finish after contact well.  Still, each player is averaging 7+ ppg for Blackman.  Solid guards.

{20} Kaden Snitzer, Eagleville (2023)

Kaden is a gifted basketball and a gifted football player.  Despite his athletic gifts there is some concern that he is still learning the game and the Eagleville system.  Further, Snitzer relies too much on his raw talent and not enough on refining his basketball-specific skills.

{20+1} Kaine Severance, Stewarts Creek (2021)

Everything is an alley fight to Kaine.  There are no players in Rutherford County that play with more unrelenting grit.  Kainte’s weaknesses are simply size and speed.  He compensates with an extremely high motor.
