With the season around the corner, it’s time to take an in-depth look at some of the teams and players expected to have a major impact. Big men are vital, and always in high demand. In this article, we take a look at the top 5 Frontcourts in the state. 

  1. Aaron Price Aaron Price 6'7" | PF Liberty | 2022 State NV , Joshua Jefferson Joshua Jefferson 6'8" | PF Liberty | 2022 State #158 Nation NV , Cole Ellena Cole Ellena 6'9" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV , Javares Reid Javares Reid 6'7" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV , Ryder Bryan Ryder Bryan 6'7" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV |Liberty| - By sheer depth alone, the Patriots are number 1. When you throw in the talent of Jefferson and Price, it becomes clear cut. Jefferson is a monster on the block with his post moves and offensive rebounding. Price provides them with a high flyer, and the combination of Ellena, Reid, and Bryant provides unmatched depth. 
  2. James Freeman James Freeman 6'5" | PF Bishop Gorman | 2022 State NV , Anthony Nwuli Anthony Nwuli 6'5" | PF Bishop Gorman | 2024 State NV , Darrion Williams Darrion Williams 6'6" | SF Bishop Gorman | 2022 State NV |Bishop Gorman| - The trio checks all the boxes for the 9-time defending state champs. Freeman plays above the rim, Nwuli does the dirty work, and Williams handles just about everything else. Expect transition points and extra effort plays from the high flyer and interior D from the glue guy. Williams will play make and stretch the floor. 
  3. Aaron Price Aaron Price 6'7" | PF Liberty | 2022 State NV , Joshua Jefferson Joshua Jefferson 6'8" | PF Liberty | 2022 State #158 Nation NV , Cole Ellena Cole Ellena 6'9" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV , Javares Reid Javares Reid 6'7" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV , Ryder Bryan Ryder Bryan 6'7" | C Liberty | 2024 State NV |Liberty| - By sheer depth alone, the Patriots are number 1. When you throw in the talent of Jefferson and Price, it becomes clear cut. Jefferson is a monster on the block with his post moves and offensive rebounding. Price provides them with a high flyer, and the combination of Ellena, Reid, and Bryant provides unmatched depth.  James Freeman James Freeman 6'5" | PF Bishop Gorman | 2022 State NV , Anthony Nwuli Anthony Nwuli 6'5" | PF Bishop Gorman | 2024 State NV , Darrion Williams Darrion Williams 6'6" | SF Bishop Gorman | 2022 State NV |Bishop Gorman| - The trio checks all the boxes for the 9-time defending state champs. Freeman plays above the rim, Nwuli does the dirty work, and Williams handles just about everything else. Expect transition points and extra effort plays from the high flyer and interior D from the glue guy. Williams will play make and stretch the floor.  Jaylen Pollard Jaylen Pollard 6'4" | SF Canyon Springs | 2022 State NV , Bryant Largarady Bryant Largarady 6'8" | SF Canyon Springs | 2022 State NV , Lorenzo Moore Lorenzo Moore 6'5" | PF Canyon Springs | 2022 State NV |Canyon Springs| - Perhaps one of the more unknown units, the Trio brings a variety of skills to the table including, interior defense (Moore), transition and interior scoring (Pollard), and playmaking Lagarady. When all 3 are on, CS becomes really tough to beat.  Kendan Jones Kendan Jones 6'5" | C Sunrise Mountain | 2025 State NV , Lonnie Bass Jr Lonnie Bass Jr 6'7" | PF Valley | 2025 State NV |Rancho| - The Rams two freshmen deserve a mention. Jones is a talented offensive player who can score with his back to the basket or stretch the floor with his 3 point shooting ability. Bass is already one of the top rebounders in the state and has shown good footspeed when changing ends. Bass’s ability to rim run and finish in transition should play a huge role in his point production.  Pharaoh Compton Pharaoh Compton 6'5" | PF Spring Valley | 2024 State NV , Desean Moreno Desean Moreno 6'4" | PF Spring Valley | 2022 State NV |Spring Valley| - Compton and Moreno may be the most athletic duo. Compton is a dunk waiting to happen, using his long arms to reach up and hammer home anything close to the rim. Moreno is a high flyer that provides extra possessions with his energy and effort. The site of Compton rim running and Moreno sprinting the wing is a frightening one for opponents.  Follow On Twitter On IG Like Us On FB
