After taking in several games in Week 4, we discovered some more intriguing players that either hadn’t seen previously or hadn’t seen with their high school teams yet. Here’s a look at the top ones we saw from the Classes of 2023 and 2024.
Christian Green (2023 Cleveland)
A clip of Green dunking on the break went viral on social media so we made it a point to watch him closely when he played against Jefferson. The 6-foot-2 guard didn’t put up huge numbers but it’s clear when you observe him move he’s a good athlete who can get up around the rim. Definitely someone we will want to keep an eye on going forward.
Ty Best (2023 Santiam)
Best is another whose dunking exploits have made the rounds on social media. He’s a well-built 6-foot-6 forward who clearly looks the part physically and in Santiam’s win over Portland Christian, he was very aggressive around the hoop and on the boards. While it’s clear that Best is a bit raw offensively, he did step out and confidently knock down a three. And defensively he really held his ground well while effectively guarding a seven-footer in Mo Hartwich Mo Hartwich 7'0" | C Portland Christian | 2021 State OR .
Mo Hartwich Mo Hartwich 7'0" | C Portland Christian | 2021 State OR . Marchon Marshall Marchon Marshall 5'10" | PG Westview | 2023 State OR (2023 Westview) We saw a bit of Marshall play with the Oregon Prospects over the summer and fall and a little bit earlier this season against Sunset. Against Jefferson, the point guard seemed a bit hesitant to attack but handled the pressure fairly well and looked to make the right play. Marshall has a nice touch on his shot and will get more opportunities to grow this summer and beyond. Max Archambo (2023 Lake Oswego) With some senior returnees and some high profile transfers coming in, there wasn’t much buzz surrounding Archambo coming into this season. But the 6-foot-3 sophomore has made himself an important member of the Lakers rotation and against Canby, showed some good aggressiveness offensively. Archambo has a good touch on his shot and hit a couple in the win. Chance White Chance White 5'10" | CG Roosevelt | 2024 OR (2024 Roosevelt) Roosevelt has other freshmen who may have gotten more publicity this season but White has been right there with his production, especially as of late. The 6-foot guard has a quick first step, can finish around the hoop, and is also capable of hitting open perimeter shots. Defensively he’s pretty solid for a younger player as well. Logan Law Logan Law 5'9" | PG Milwaukie | 2023 State OR (2023 Milwaukie) Law has been the engine for the Mustangs ever since last year and while he’s a fairly little guy at 5-foot-9, he’s as tough as nails and doesn’t back down from anyone on both ends of the floor. Law has deep range on his shot, sinking a few threes against Oregon City, and was an absolute pest on the defensive end often creating some turnover opportunities. Deon Best Deon Best 5'11" | PG Oregon City | 2024 OR (2024 Oregon City) The younger brother of former Pioneers great Andre Best Andre Best 5'11" | PG Oregon City | 2020 State OR , Deon Best Deon Best 5'11" | PG Oregon City | 2024 OR has a similar profile. He’s well-built physically, a hard-nosed defender, and really looks to attack the basket on the offensive end. The 5-foot-11 freshman might be further along offensively at this stage with his perimeter shooting as he was able to hit some outside jumpers in Oregon City’s big win over Milwaukie.
