Being a guard that is not ranked seems to place a chip on the shoulders of certain players. Consequently, those players want to prove, with their play, that evaluators are wrong by not rating them. From the Grind SZN Kickoff, there were more than a few guards in this category. In this installment of Unranked, I will focus on a few guards who may be unranked now but should be in the near future.

Zyrin Brantley (6’0″ / Lubbock Matadors / 2023)

Brantley showed a very quick first step in games during the Grind SZN Kickoff in Oklahoma City.  He also displayed the ability to read defenses and take advantage of what was given to him.  If it was the baseline drive, he used his burst to get in the paint quickly and finish with a soft floater.  In transition, Brantley displayed speed to get behind the defense and make a transition layup before some defenders got to the three point line.  He is a basketball player with speed and those players are a commodity.  Hopefully more showings like this will improve his chances of being ranked in Texas.  

Camrien Manahan (5’11″ / Lubbock Matadors / 2023)
