The new 2021 rankings are out.

This season ended up being a short AIA season, a full Grind Session season, a condensed CAA season and a longer AAU season with showcase formats.

This 2021 class has met every obstacle possible and many are still looking for their next spots after HS. 

 

We look at the Top-10 SG’s in the 2021 class:

1. Kiran Oliver Kiran Oliver 6'4" | SG Phhoenix Prep | 2021 State AZ Phhoenix Prep

-A wildly athletic guard is a highlight reel waiting to happen. He has NBA shooting range and is a top-tier defender from on the perimeter and inside blocking shots. Oliver committed to New Mexico State.  

2. Joshua Uduje Joshua Uduje 6'5" | SG AZ Compass Prep | 2021 State AZ Compass Prep

-A shooter earned himself a starting spot on a LOADED roster with his strong play. He also plays way above the rim on the break and his 3-ball has become a weapon. Uduje has D1 offers and heavy interest.  

3. JJ White JJ White 6'3" | SG Ironwood | 2021 State AZ Ironwood 

-The top 3 and D guard in the AIA had a great year. He became an all-time leader in steals for Ironwood and was one of the best shooters from downtown. His body is college ready and is very under recruited currently.

Darrell Belcher Darrell Belcher 6'3" | SG Phhoenix Prep Post Grad | 2021 State AZ Phhoenix Prep -A strong guard is like a bowling ball getting into the lane. He uses his almost 200 pound build to score though contact and the lefty can shoot the 3.  5. Yahir Garcia Yahir Garcia 6'4" | SG Southern AZ Volunteers | 2021 State AZ Southern AZ Volunteers  -A long and taller guard. He doesn't have the big frame like Belcher but he is arguably the best shooter in Tucson. He can pull-up from mid and has the deep range from the 3.  6. Jaden DeBoer Jaden DeBoer 6'2" | SG Valley Christian | 2021 State AZ Valley Christian (Pictured)  -One of the better AIA shooters I viewed all season long. He had eight games of five or more 3's made including 9 vs Gilbert Christian scoring 37 points. He verbally committed to Western Washington.  7. Coleman Fields Coleman Fields 6'4" | SG Millennium | 2021 State AZ Millennium  -Another 3 and D type had a breakout season. He grew some, polished up his J and used his athletic talents to defend.   8. Malik Payton Malik Payton 6'1" | SG Florence | 2021 State AZ Florence  -An undersized guard shot the ball at ridiculous pace. (55% from the 3). He hit 8 vs Valley Christian and scored 41 points. He had 9 games of 25 points or more. He has gained many offers with his strong play this season.  9. Max Kunnert Max Kunnert 6'3" | SG Hillcrest Prep | 2021 State AZ Hillcrest Prep  -A 3pt specialist spread the floor all year for Foster and co. He has a quick release and squares up flawlessly.  10. Amarei Hunter Amarei Hunter 6'2" | SG Desert Edge | 2021 State AZ Desert Edge -A long defender has improved each year. He is not the big scorer but scored 18 or more points six times including 24 vs 4A runner-up Paradise Honors with three made 3's. He covers a lot of ground and defends multiple positions.     5 Others: 1. Gunner Wooden Gunner Wooden 6'4" | SG Glenview College Prep | 2021 State AZ Glenview College Prep -A long and lean shooter has garnered a lot of interest this season. He picked up multiple small school offers and when he is rolling, he is tough to stop from deep.  2. Carter John Carter John 6'1" | SG Bradshaw Mountain | 2021 State AZ Bradshaw Mountain  -A little undersized but athletic and has improved as a shooter in the last year. He had an impressive 19 vs St. Mary's while hitting two 3's.  3. Miles Guliford Miles Guliford 6'1" | SG Liberty | 2021 State AZ Liberty  -A lefty shooter gets hot quickly. He loves it from catch and shoot and collects steals with his quickness and good length.  4. Noah Simmons Noah Simmons 6'3" | SG Glenview College Prep | 2021 State AZ Glenview College Prep  -A do-it-all guard handles it, defends and makes the correct play. He shoots it well and has good length to defend. His catch-3 is consistent and he can drive it.  5. Carson Biggs Carson Biggs 6'1" | SG Desert Mountain | 2021 State AZ Desert Mountain  -A good shooter who defends the best guard/wing on each team. He can pull-up from mid plus make the catch-3.
