The summer is fully underway with prospects gearing up for strong AAU seasons, which should bolster their stock in a big way. The 2024 class is eager to hit the ground running, eager to impress college coaches. The rising sophomore class is filled with guards who are ready to take on a bigger scoring role in their second high school season. Here are the top 2024 guards who could take a big jump in 2022.

Elijah Brown Elijah Brown 6'3" | SG St. Augustine | 2024 State NJ , 6’3 SG St. Augustine

The Hermits are one of the top programs in South Jersey, but they should still get a big jolt from Brown this season. The 6’3 guard does not mind diving on the floor for loose balls and plays with energy every time he is in the game. Brown is a good all-around defender as he moves his feet on the ball, slides over for defensive rotations and gets deflections. He understands how to move off the ball, allowing him to get easy baskets around the rim. Brown is a high-energy glue guy that should have a big role in St. Augustine’s attack this season.

Ryan Frauenheim Ryan Frauenheim 5'10" | PG Manasquan | 2024 State NJ , 5’10 PG Manasquan

Frauenheim has had a strong start
