6/25 Prospect Spotlight: 2022 Guards

Adidas Davis (6-4 PG, Buffalo Grove)

The lanky, lefty combo guard still has his best days ahead of him. Davis is a solid shooter that can connect off the dribble. His size is a significant advantage at the guard spot, able to shoot over smaller defenders. With experience, he should become a solid pick-and-roll player that creates offense on the move. Davis should be receiving more attention in his junior season.

Justin King (6-3 PG, Mascoutah)

With good quickness and length, King creates problems on both ends. He is a tremendous perimeter defender that uses his quick hands and anticipation to make plays on that side of the ball. King is a smooth playmaker that handles with good pace. At 6-foot,3 he has the size that you want in a high-level point guard. Best at scoring off of dribble drives, but King can also hit spot-up threes. He has a chance to be a special player. A number of mid-majors have started to recruit King.

Kyle Neibch (6-1 SG, Batavia)

Neibch is a hard-nosed two guard who can really shoot it from the perimeter. He has deep range and is automatic when left open from three. A strong athlete who also stars in football, Neibch is built with a solid frame that is more mature than most kids his age. As his off-the dribble game improves, Neibch will be a difficult cover over the next few years.

Danny New (6-1 PG, Aurora Christian)

New played a big role on a dominant Aurora Christian team as a sophomore. Earning all-state honors, New is a consistent, efficient offensive player that makes the most of his dribbles. New is a solid finisher and penetrator that can hit pull-ups in traffic. A good outside shooter off the ball, he should continue to show off his passing instincts with more ball-handling duties as a junior. It looks like he has a frame that should be able to add strength going forward. New is a player in 1A to keep an eye on.

David Williams (6-1 SG, Peoria Notre Dame)

As a sophomore, Williams made his impact on the defensive end. He is active with solid athleticism and length to defend multiple spots. He has a nice outside shot that you will see more of as a junior. In transition, Williams can finish himself or set up teammates. Look for Williams to be more aggressive offensively as a junior. He has the look of a 3-and-D two guard/wing.
