With the grassroots spring session in the rearview mirror, it’s time to take a look at some of the biggest stock risers over the past few months. Heading into the summer, here are the some of the point guards who improved their stock the most. 

Leland Walker Leland Walker 5'11" | PG North Central | 2022 State #145 Nation IN (North Central/Team Teague/2022)

Walker has been one of the most impressive players this spring. His shot creation and shot making has improved since last season and he continues to find ways to score the ball. He is best attacking the rim and his quickness makes him nearly unguardable in the open floor. Throughout the spring, Walker has had multiple 30+ point games and has been extremely consistent, something he hasn’t always been.

Tayshawn Comer Tayshawn Comer 6'0" | PG Cathedral | 2022 State #201 Nation IN (Cathedral/Indy Heat/2022)

Comer was very good all spring and capped it off with one of his best weekends last week. He showcased his all-around point guard abilities with his scoring, passing and defensive pressure. Comer has a lot of talent around him on Indy Heat and continues let the game come to him. His scoring ability has always been there but I was impressed with his decision making and playmaking ability for teammates most.

But, this spring he showed why he is an extremely solid point guard who is in store for a big summer. His court vision is terrific and he is a true point guard who leads with his playmaking ability. What he has improved on is being able to pick his spots. Because of his quick first step, he can get to the rim at will, and now he’s done a better job at finishing through contact. He showed good ability to connect at the mid-range. His overall court awareness is getting better and better and he is now a very well-rounded floor general.  Jackson Ullom Jackson Ullom 5'10" | PG Monroe Central | 2022 State IN (Monroe Central/Team Future/2022) Ullom isn’t going to blow you away with quickness or athleticism or size, but he is just a winner and great leader. He has good understanding of pace and when to push the ball or hold up. His shot is solid and he has a good ability to hit off of the dribble. If the defense runs him off of the perimeter, he has good strength to finish at the rim. His vision is what impressed me. He finds openings in the defense that most players can’t see and is able to fit the pass in small holes. He was very intriguing when I saw him this spring. Marcus Northern Marcus Northern 5'11" | PG South Bend Washington | 2023 State IN (South Bend Washington/Indiana Game Premier/2023) This was my first time seeing Northern this spring and he did not disappoint. He is a bigger lead guard who is always in attack mode, whether that is creating for others or himself. He is super athletic and has great length that makes him difficult to stop when he’s going downhill towards the basket. His shot is improving and has good ability to knock it down from three but he still looks more comfortable mid-range and in. One thing you’ll never have to ask from Northern is to increase his motor because he will always look to make the extra effort on the floor.
