We are looking at some 2021 guards who are coming off of good junior seasons.
Gabe Calhoun (6-2 SG, Dunlap)
The long-armed lefty gets to the basket often where he can score in a variety of ways. Calhoun has a good handle that allows him to create off the dribble against tight defense. He is more of a scoring guard than point guard, using his change-of-pace to penetrate into the lane. He is coming off a big junior season and projects as a downhill scorer for a D3 program.
Caleb Corro (6-1 PG, Saint Patrick’s)
Corro controls tempo and gets to his spots on offense. He looks to create with his dribble drive, trying to turn the corner or get paint touches in transition. Corro can handle the ball when pressured and apply his own pressure with his defensive activity. He is a true point guard that is going could be a rock solid play initiator for a college program.
Daniel Duncan (6-1 SG, Peoria Christian)
Duncan is an explosive lefty that plays to his strengths in transition. He is quick and lanky, creating turnovers defensively before finishing above the rim on the break. His outside shooting form us fluid, and as it progresses, Duncan will be able to find even more driving lanes. He shows solid vision as a passer to go along with his ability to knife into the paint. Duncan still has room to grow off of an honorable mention all-state season.
Jared Pearson (6-2 PG, Maine West)
Pearson is a solid scoring point guard with good athleticism and size. He gets off the ground well around the rim, allowing him to finish in traffic or over length. Pearson has a nice outside shot extending past the three-point line. When pushing in transition, he can get to the rim with his strength and finish. He will have another high-scoring senior season.
