7/8 Prospect Spotlight: 2021 Point Guards

We are looking at some 2021 point guards coming off of big junior seasons.

Drew Gaston (5-11 PG, Indian Creek)

On the heels of an All-State season, Gaston should be a point guard for smaller colleges to target. Gaston plays at high speeds in transition and has the creativity to finish or make plays for his teammates. He is a solid on-ball defender that has excellent anticipation in the passing lanes. His quickness is an asset on both ends, showing the ability to jet by defenders to get into the paint. Gaston has good elevation on his mid-range jumper as well. The Indian Creek floor general will appeal to a number of coaches.

Nathanael Hoskins (6-4 PG, Danville)

Hoskins is one of the biggest and physically strongest point guards in the state. He is built more like a wing, but has the instincts of a natural lead guard. Most defenders are unable to keep him out of the paint with his slick ball-handling and power. With his feet set, Hoskins can knock down shots from the outside, but the paint touches open up his game to highlight his vision and scoring. The University of Indianapolis and Illinois-Springfield have offered Hoskins to this point.

Ethan Roberts (6-5 PG, Hersey)

Roberts is a big, playmaking point guard that has a maturity about his game. At 6-foot-5, he has good vision and feel as a passer, effectively setting guys up on the move. He can spray threes from all around the perimeter with a solid shooting base off the catch. His mid-range pull-up is smooth and should become a shot that he can lean on in late shot clock situations in college. More reliant on size than athleticism, Roberts uses his body well on penetration to create the angles for finishes. He is going to attract Division 1 interest on the recruiting trail heading into his senior season.

Parker Wolfe (5-11 PG, Effingham)

Wolfe is a scoring dynamo that does a lot of his damage from behind the arc. After averaging 21.3 points on 40 percent shooting from three, Wolfe earned All-State honors. He is a score-first point guard that has a quick trigger from three and enough craftiness to probe for opportunities at the rim. The lefty is a decent athlete with good hands on the defensive end. Wolfe will be able to play point in college, but could be used heavily off the ball as a floor spacer.
