July is finally here as AAU teams will be fighting to take home championships. The rising sophomore class is ready to make an impact, especially the lead guards. Here are the 2025 point guards who could have a breakout July.
, 6’0 Pennington
Snead is a lead guard prospect to watch in July with his ability to affect the offense in a variety of different ways. The 6’0 lefty has a lightning quick first step and a good handle, which he uses to get by his defender and finish around the basket. Snead is more than just a slasher as he has a nice release on his jumper and shoots the ball with confidence. He is a solid passer and slides his feet on the defensive end. Snead is a quick floor general whose ability to make plays with the ball in his hands will help his stock in a big way.
, 6’4 Paul VI
Hidalgo can play on and off the ball, making him one of the more intriguing prospects in the class. The 6’4 guard uses his size to see over his defender and makes good decisions with the ball in his hands. Hidalgo uses his body to draw contact around the basket and is a solid finisher. He has a good shooting stroke and moves well without the ball in his hands. Hidalgo is a skilled guard prospect who has the potential to have a big July.
, 5’11 St. Peter’s Prep
Miller is one of the more exciting guards in the class and should put it on display in July. The 5’11 point guard has a tight handle, which he uses to blow by his defender and get to the rim. Miller is unphased by on-ball pressure and can thread passes through traffic. He has a nice release on his jumper and plays with quick hands on the defensive end. Miller is a dynamic lead guard who uses his speed and talent to make plays at both ends of the floor.
, 5’8 Ridgewood
Jackson is one of the top shooters in the class and should put it on display this summer. The 5’8 guard has a quick release on his jumper and can bury shots in bunches from distance. Jackson moves well without the ball in his hands, freeing himself up for open jumpers and layups. He has an underrated handle and the ball does not stick in his hands in the half court. Jackson is a sharpshooting guard whose ability to knock down triples will help his stock in a big way.
, 6’1 St. Joe’s Metuchen
Regan had a strong June with the Falcons and is looking to carry it over into July with the NJ Panthers. The 6’1 guard uses his combination of quickness and handle to get to the rim, where he is a good finisher around the basket. Regan has a nice touch on his floater and can make opponents pay for giving him space on the perimeter. He is a strong rebounder for a guard and slides his feet well on the defensive end. Regan’s ability to score from inside and out is something that will be key for him and his game this summer.
