Today in our rankings coverage we will be taking a look at the point guards who are outside of the top overall rankings in the class. The 2023 class is one of the deeper classes in some time with a big pool of very similar and impactful players. Let’s look at some of the point guards in this middle portion of the rankings.

 

 

#37 Brian Hawthorne Brian Hawthorne 6'2" | PG St. James | 2023 State KS , 6’2, St James, Drive 5: A true floor general with tremendous size for the point guard position. Great combination of court vision, length, and anticipation on the basketball floor leads to Hawthorne really controlling tempo, getting guys great shots, and create for himself. Has a tremendous motor and his teammates at both the high school and grassroots level feed off of it. Hawthorne can step up and knock down big shots, efficient off two feet on attacks, and handles the ball really well.

 

#38 Makaen Hastings Makaen Hastings 5'11" | PG Solomon | 2023 State KS , 5’10, Solomon, PGU: A really solid playmaker off the dribble, Hastings found ways to score in the paint or dish to teammates for good opportunities this high school season after not shooting it as well as normal during the junior campaign.
