Holden Arnaman Holden Arnaman 6'1" | PG West Branch | 2024 State IA (West Branch)

A heady lead guard, Arnaman worked his way into the starting lineup for a veteran Bears group and was a big-time contributor, averaging 5.6 points and 2.7 assists a game. He posted a nearly 2-1 assist-to-turnover ratio as a freshman and shot a respectable 35.4% from behind the arc. He handles the ball well, values possessions, and loves to get others involved. As he continues to mature physically, he should become a more efficient scorer with an improved ability to finish around the rim through contact. 

 

Joseph Bean Joseph Bean 6'3" | PG Xavier | 2024 State IA (Xavier)

Bean didn’t crack the varsity roster at Xavier last year, but he’s a big, physical lead guard who doesn’t shy away from contact around the rim. He has a nice-looking stroke out to the arc and is equally comfortable shooting it off the dribble or the catch. A solid ball-handler and passer, he plays with pace, changing speeds and utilizing those changes to get by defenders. He’s a good on-ball defender with quick hands and great feet.

A 6-2 guard, he showed the ability to score from all three levels while cracking the rotation on a senior-laden roster (seven of their top eight scorers were seniors). Next year, Norwalk is Born’s team.    Trovary Cavil Trovary Cavil 5'9" | PG Des Moines Lincoln | 2024 State IA (Des Moines Lincoln) Cavil is a score-first lead guard who is coming off a big-time freshman season in which he averaged 15.0 points in the state's toughest league. He can score from all three levels, handles the ball well, and is a solid passer as well, dishing out 3.8 assists a game. He needs to become more efficient and make better decisions with the ball to limit turnovers, but there is a lot of raw talent here on both ends of the floor.    Kyler Gerardy Kyler Gerardy 6'0" | PG North Scott | 2024 State IA (North Scott) A compact combo guard, Gerardy is equally adept at scoring or facilitating. He's a good ball-handler and perimeter shooting threat and playing at North Scott, he's going to be a solid on-ball defender as well.    Tanner Jacobson Tanner Jacobson 6'0" | PG Cedar Falls | 2024 State IA (Cedar Falls) The younger of Ben Jacobson's sons is a heady lead guard who sees the floor well, is a solid on-ball defender, and a threat to shoot it from deep.    Carson Johnson Carson Johnson 5'9" | PG Ankeny | 2024 State IA (Ankeny) Johnson is small (listed at 5-8), but he was a solid contributor for the Hawks as a freshman, averaging 8.1 points and 1.4 assists while shooting 42% from behind the arc. He's a gifted ball-handler who changes speeds well and uses a quick first step to get to the rim. He's a high-level perimeter shooter both off the dribble and the catch.
