We are highlighting some of the creative and athletic guards in the 2021 class.
Christian Henry (6-1 PG, St. Rita)
Henry is a smart point guard who plays efficiently with the ball. He keeps things simple, dishing when help comes and shaking off defenders who are assigned to him. His form isn’t traditional, but comes out quick and on target. Henry can shoot it or use his footwork to maneuver his way into the lane. St. Rita’s floor general is one to watch in the area.
Darrion Jones (5-11 PG, Bogan)
With a mature frame and plus athleticism, Jones brings a lot of energy to the game. He knifes through defenses and has a knack for completing plays against size. Jones is a blur in transition, which creates a lot for himself and his teammates. While he needs some room to get a clean jumper off, Jones is able to hit some threes. He is an exciting finisher who will be a tempo setter in college.
Mac Parmelee (6-3 SG, Dunlap)
Parmelee is a skilled scorer that can really shoot it from three. He is a creative ball-handler as well, able to create space off the dribble for his shot or for penetration. Parmelee plays with an edge, unafraid of taking big shots. He will be a productive college player in the right system.
Isaiah Smith (6-2 PG, Waubonsie Valley)
Smith is a hyper-athletic combo guard that will be able to play either backcourt spot at the college level. Although he’s only 6-foot-2, Smith is an excellent leaper that can dunk better than most players his height. He brings activity to the defensive end and plays well in transition. Smith will find a way to get to the rim without much space. He should be peaking the interest of college coaches looking for athletic playmakers.
