Almost everyone thinks that they’re a sleeper, so we will do our best to cover some of these players that have next level talent. 

#23 Tyson Hawkins Tyson Hawkins 6'4" | SG Lehi | 2021 State UT , Lehi High School

Tyson is a player that has some skills that are not commonly found. Tyson is about 6’5 but you couldn’t tell because when he is playing on the floor he seems much bigger. He is quick and strong. He is long and uses his length well defending bigger players and even defending the smaller guards. Tyson really gets after it on both ends of the floor. He can score at all three levels. He could really help a team searching for a player that can guard multiple positions and be a threat offensively. 

#33 Connor Saunders Connor Saunders 6'6" | SF Syracuse | 2021 State UT , Syracuse High School

Connor has game. He can score the basketball and his length bothers defenders at the high school level. He cannot be guarded by a smaller guard because he is to skilled for that and his 6’6 frame is tough to handle. When he is guarded by bigger slower guys he puts in work as well. Great speed and pace and his skills are translatable.

With some time off he will come back as a major steal. He is not phased about being undersized at the 4 position as he can stretch the floor. He crashes the boards and is bouncy. Keegan has soft hands and he is strong and finishes tough plays with contact.  #45 Noah McCord Noah McCord 6'3" | SG Westlake | 2021 State UT , Westlake High School Noah is one of the best defenders in the state and I don’t think anyone would argue against that. He can defend 1-5 and he is about 6’4. Noah is strong and has some high IQ. He knows when to front, when to hedge and when to play straight up. He doesn’t just crash boards he positions himself in ways that he won’t get boxed out. Noah also knows how to use his fouls as he is not willing to give up anything easy. Noah could play immediately as a freshman next season for the right school.  #65 David Kinneberg David Kinneberg 6'6" | SF Juan Diego | 2021 State UT , Juan Diego Catholic The 6’6 W has been instrumental in JD’s success this year as he has blossomed with his excellent play. David is sneaky good and has a high ceiling. He has been sitting in a zone all year but he can defend 3-5 and does well on switches while guarding the perimeter. On the offensive end he has a smooth looking hook shot and jump push and he also looks good letting it go from 15-feet and beyond. David would be ideal for a D3 school.
