6/19 Prospect Spotlight: 2021 Point Guards

There are a number of solid point guards in the 2021 class. Here are a few floor generals that can play at various levels.

Ty Johnson (6-2 PG, DePaul Prep)

Johnson is one of the premier point guards in the 2021 class. He is a quick-twitch athlete with a very good first step. Whether it is in pick-and-rolls or isolations, Johnson is a dynamic shot creator capable of operating from all three levels. His long-range shooting opens up a lot, willing and able to hit from behind the college line. He averaged over 20 points a game, but Johnson is a solid playmaker at high speeds. He is going to be a nightmare for college defenses in the screen game. Offers continue to come in for Johnson.

Adri Malushi (5-8 PG, Waubonsie Valley)

At 5-foot-8, Malushi is a bit undersized, but he has the skills required to run an offense. He plays with good pace and energy, setting up teammates within the offense and out of broken plays. As a shooter, Malushi is excellent in catch-and-shoots, connecting on 44 percent of his threes as a junior. You can expect him to compete on both ends throughout the game. Malushi is a scrappy floor general that can shoot it from the outside. Even at his size, a small college could use his service.

Eric Price (6-0 PG, Galesburg)

Price is a tank at the point guard position. He plays with an old-school game using his tremendous strength to control the game. At 6-foot with good patience and body control, Price is a very physical driver who doesn’t need help getting to the rim. Even though he is not the most explosive athlete, Price gets to his spots and draws help before finding the open man. He has a solid lefty stroke from the outside that has some range on it. Price has a pit bull mentality that is going to help him differentiate himself at the college level. He averaged 16.3 points and five assists as part of an All-State season.

Coltin Quagliano (6-1 PG, Kewanee Wethersfield)

A star multi-sport athlete, Quagliano is going to receive college interest on the gridiron as well. That athleticism shows itself on the court with the explosiveness and change of direction moves. Quagliano can stop on a dime and pull-up from mid-range or three. He is a slick ball-handler who is able to penetrate off a series of setup moves. He will be one of the highest scoring returning guards after putting up 22.6 points a game as a junior. D3 coaches should take a long look at Quagliano.

Isaiah Stafford (6-1 PG, Bolingbrook)

Recruiting is starting to heat up for the long-armed guard from Bolingbrook. Stafford plays more like a 6-foot-4 guard with his toughness and length. Stafford is a good passer who breaks down defenses in a hurry. In terms of his shooting, the mechanics are there and he can catch fire from deep. But the open court is a highlight reel with Stafford given his ability to blow past defenders and finish acrobatically around the rim. Chicago State has recently offered.
