The Battlezone is a week removed, but we still have a few more reports to go. This one focuses on the 2022 prospects that stood out to us. 

Battlezone LA: 2022 standouts 

Dylan Hayman, 6-6 2022 G, Vermont  Academy/ Lakeshow Elite

A recent grad from Healdsburg HS and headed for a prep year, Hayman was the MVP of the event’s top division. A polished combo guard who scores it from three levels with the athleticism to finish above the rim in the half court and transition, Hayman hit timely shots all weekend. An underrated playmaker, he operated effectively out of ball screen action to find the roll man or locate shooters on the drive and kick. 

Christian Estrada, 6-7 2022 F, St. John Bosco/ Veritas 

A workhorse in the paint for Veritas, his position defense and rebounding neutralized the opposition’s interior attack. The lefty also proved to be a solid finisher around the basket with excellent hands and the strength to finish through contact. When fouled, Estrada consistently knocked down free throws, an underrated attribute for a big.

Another 2021 who has announced his intent to prep, Sanchez had a strong weekend
