He improved his skill from the perimeter and his athleticism has come in. He can flush it down on the break or rip through. He can crossover his defender and rise up and hit from mid-range. One of the stock risers from the class.  Trey Brown Trey Brown 6'6" | SF Phhoenix Prep | 2023 State AZ Phhoenix Prep A growing point forward type seems to get a little better each season. He uses his size to get downhill but can also make the catch-3. His game is his versatility on defense to defend the 1-4 and facilitating abilities.  Erenzo Scroggins Erenzo Scroggins 6'4" | SF McClintock | 2023 State AZ McClintock A thick wing forward with some serious springs.

He rebounds like a man possessed and he is a capable 3pt shooter.   Brayden Gant Brayden Gant 6'4" | SF Coolidge | 2023 State AZ Coolidge One of the top risers in the class has moved over to Coolidge HS from Desert Vista. His offensive and defensive talents should stand out in 3A and he can score from all three levels with skill and some bounce.    Corey Wood Corey Wood 6'7" | SF ALA-Ironwood | 2023 State AZ ALA-Ironwood  A bigger wing is one of the better small school junior standouts. He has great size, as he is now 6'7, with a pretty touch from the 3pt line. He is rebounding and defending better then the beginning of the year and makes more plays for his teammates.  Marsai Mason Marsai Mason 6'5" | SF Mountain Pointe | 2023 State AZ Mountain Pointe  A classic 3 and D type of game. Although lean, he has great length and he will defend multiple positions. He can hit the 3 plus slash to the basket and will score on put backs.
