6’3 SG Kolton Smith Kolton Smith 6'3" | SG Skyline | 2022 State UT | Skyline High School | Mountain Stars

Kolton is a legit shooter. He can line it up quickly and he lets it fly from deep. He has a quick release and it has great trajectory. Catch and shoot he is great. He doesn’t need to move or adjust his feet so much on those drive and kicks or the simple wing pass and catch. He is threat anytime he has the ball in his hands and he gets to his spots on the break quickly. He is a shooter that needs to be accounted for at all-times. 

6’8 SF Jaxon Heiden Jaxon Heiden 6'8" | SF Alta | 2022 State UT | Alta High School | Salt Lake Rebels

Don’t be fooled by the fact that Jaxon is tall and plays that SF position because he can step out and shoot the ball really well. Defensively he blocks shots and runs the floor in transition. Jaxon can get up and use his athletic ability to finish above the rim but he can also maneuver around the rim finishing. I think if he is looked at more as a wing, he could really increase his stock more as well.

He plays a lot bigger than he is. With the ability to run 1-3 he is able to maximize his time on the floor playing multiple positions. He is not reliant on shooting well from deep but he can, he does well getting to the basket and he can finish really well as he uses his long arms to finish over guards and the help side defender. Great prospect and find for a small school.  6’5 Esafe Taufahema | West Jordan High School | Salt Lake Basketball Club High motor, strong young man that is developing an outside game. Plays with intensity that is contagious. Strong inside moves. It’s as if he knows when to attack and when to defer. Tough on the boards as he is always seeking those rebounds.  6’9 C Kean Webb Kean Webb 6'9" | C Dixie | 2023 State UT | Dixie High School |  Keep an eye on Kean as he was in a log jam at a school that had a lot of talent. Kean is long, skilled and physical on both ends of the floor. Defensively he is a presence altering shots and he moves well laterally. Great communicator on screens and switches. On offense he has a go to over his left shoulder and a nice turn and face up game.
