{6} Martise Jackson Martise Jackson 6'3" | CG Siegel | 2021 State TN , Siegel (2021)

Martise is the best on-ball defender in the district. Further, he can guard the 1-3 positions. Jackson ended a game with his three-point shooting last week.

The Monday Big Shots

{7} Ashton McCarver Ashton McCarver 6'1" | SG Smyrna | 2022 State TN , Smyrna (2022)

Exceptional at drawing contact and slipping into the lane.  Ashton is a skilled guard with numerous elements to his game.  McCarver is that rare volume scorer that also scraps and claws constantly.  Late in January the junior scorer is averaging 15.6 points per game on 47.7% shooting.

{8} Trevor Chatman Trevor Chatman 6'3" | CG Stewarts Creek | 2021 State TN , Stewarts Creek (2021)

Trevor is a physical combo guard with a better than average shooting touch.  Chatman consistently creates his own shots and never shies away from the big opportunity. Wonderful around the rim.  Much of Chatman’s highlight film is “spoiled” by the fact that Stewarts Creek uses TC as a power forward.  His future, standing at 6-foot-3, is clearly as a 2-guard.  Regardless, Chatman can bounce, elevate, and finish in traffic.  Plus body control. Draws a lot of fouls.

{9} Bryce Jackson Bryce Jackson 6'1" | PG Stewarts Creek | 2021 State TN , Stewarts Creek (2021)

Clever. Bryce puts up numbers.  Jackson was part of the staggeringly quick 2018-2019 Stewarts Creek backcourt of Torian Daly, J.J. Platt, etc.  They were nightmarishly quick.  Bryce’s strength is shooting.  Often, Jackson will lead his team in scoring or finish in the top 2.  Jackson actually thrives most as a catch-and-shoot player though his seniority and experience necessitate that he runs much of the offense.

{10} Jayden Hernandez Jayden Hernandez 6'3" | PG Central Magnet | 2021 State TN , Central Magnet (2021)

During his junior year Jayden averaged 13.3 points per game with 2.3 rpg and 5.4 assists per game.  Most impressively perhaps Hernandez finished shooting over 56% from the floor.
