2024 Guards To Know
Sunni Wrice (6’1”/Point Guard) is playing up a division with the Juice All Stars 17U. He is an absolute floor general that runs the team and creates. He is speedy and gets down-hill with the best of them. He has a good handle and does a good job of keeping his eyes open while driving and attacking. When he gets going he can score in bunches. This is back to back weekends where Wrice has asserted his self as a legit D2/D1 college level prospect!
Roosevelt Brown (2024/6’2”/Guard) of the Southern Kings 16U is a smooth scoring guard that plays with a good pace. He has the ability to knock down shots with consistently from behind the arc. He isn’t the fastest or most explosive guard, but with his handle and shiftiness he showed the ability to create his shot almost at will. He had multiple 20 games over the weekend & even showed he could control the pace and play on the ball. Expect big things from this young prospect from Augusta, GA over the next two years.
Ryan Crotty (6’5”/Shooting Guard) Team Wall 16U was on fire shooting the ball in New Orleans. He was second his team in scoring as he averaged (17ppg, (rpg, 4apg) on the weekend. Crotty plays his high school ball at Holly Springs High School in the hoop state and has a great jump shot with range past the 3pt line. At 6’5” he has the size to rise and shoot over defenders. With his size, athleticism and ability to space and stretch the floor, expect him to highly sought after by college coaches. Follow him on twitter: @ryan_crotty32
Lawyer Jones (6’/Point Guard) of ASAK Elite 16U is another smooth guard that never seems to get sped up and makes plays quickly on his feet. Jones constantly knocked down jumpers all tournament (both off the catch & off the dribble). He put his athleticism on full display as well by excelling in transition and finishing plays at the rim. He had multiple 20+ point games and made a statement that he would be one to see during the live periods. Follow him on twitter: @lawyerjones1
Tylon Redmond (6’3”/Guard) of Team AJ Bouye Gold 17U is a flashy guard that plays hard at all times. He is a great athlete that looks to finish above the rim and through contact. His motor is on 10 at all times, which makes him elite in transition and playing in passing lanes. He showed our college scouts the ability to knock down perimeter shots with consistency.

Braylen Smith is a (5’10”/PG) that plays with the Southern Kings 16U. Coming off a State Championship season with Augusta Prep, he has hit the ground running with travel ball. This smaller guard has great speed ball skills. He is shifty the ball in his hands and is wired to create (shots & for others). He has a good looking 3pt shot & can score in bunches. One to keep an eye on as he heads into the live period.
Jayden Harris (6’4”/Guard) of Team Wall 16U was impressive all weekend. He lead his team in scoring (18ppg, 5rpg, 3apg) as Team Wall finished up 3-1 losing in the Championship to ASAK. Harris attends Salisbury High in North Carolina where he averaged 20+ppg this season. He possess great length, warm arms (slender frame), but can really get hot and shoot the ball. When forced off the line, he can attack downhill and make plays at the rim also. He consistently made plays on the defensive end using his length in the passing lane. Must see for college coaches.
Kohen Rowbatham (6’2”/Combo Guard) plays with Team FIFA 17U and he caught the eye of our college scouts on hand. He has a college ready body/frame and plays with a good tempo and high IQ. Kohen is as tough of a player as there is, and he can really get down-hill and create off the bounce. He added flare to his passes, and showed he could knock down shots behind the arc.

Matt Krass (6’2”/Combo Guard) of Community Saved 16U is as tough as they come. You will never see him back down or play intimidated. Krass was in a zone this weekend offensively as he exploded for 20+ on multiple occasions. He has a really good looking stroke from behind the arc, and he moves well and cuts hard without the ball to create open opportunities. Follow him on
