It is fun every year to see the young talent emerge at the high school level. North Dakota is full of freshmen ballers. In this article, we will look at 9th graders who should have an impact at the varsity level. 

Freshman To Follow

Mason Klabo Mason Klabo 6'0" | SG Fargo Davies | 2025 State ND |6-0 G| Fargo Davies/Team Tyus

He stood out in the EDC last season as an 8th grader and you should expect more of the same this season. Klabo is a skilled and gifted athlete. He is a 5-tool player that can do it all. Davies has many scoring options so opposing teams should not be able to double-team him. Look for Klabo to put up impressive scoring numbers this season and to also handle the rock with care. He is also a precision passer. Make sure you get to Davies once the season starts and watch him play. 

Walker Braaten Walker Braaten 6'0" | PG Westhope/Newburg | 2025 State ND |6-0 G| Westhope-Newburg/ECI

He put up monster numbers last year as an 8th grader. Walker should come into the season
