On September 22, the Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo invaded Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids. In a state sometimes dominated by excellent guards, there was no shortage of senior and junior star point guards. Some of these players may technically be considered combo guards or even shooting guards, but at the Top 250 they all at least showed flashes of lead guard skills.
Mason Canfield (2021, 5’11, Bloomfield Hills)
Canfield always played steady and under control. He made the high percentage passes with accuracy.
Justus Clark (2020, 5’11”, North Farmington)
Clark thrives with the ball in his hands. He can play at any pace and directs traffic. Clark has the look of a true leader on the floor.
Daane Harvey (2021, 6’1″, Forest Hills Eastern)
Harvey is considered a combo guard, but I can really see him playing the point. He has a very strong natural understanding of the game.
Mario Hill (2021, 5’11”, Henry Ford II)
Hill didn’t handle a ton at the Top 250, but when he got the ball in the half court he looked confident and quick with the it. I’d really like to see him as a primary ball handler.
Christian Johnson (2021, 6’0″, L’Anse Creuse North)
Johnson plays with confidence and this rubs off on his teammates. He can score or dish with equal efficiency.
Jamoni Jones (2020, 6’0″, East Kentwood)
Jones was aggressive and attacked the rim at the Top 250. He was nearly unstoppable with the ball in his hands and looked like a D1 prospect.
De’Ovion Price (2021, 6’1″, Port Huron)
Price is a prospect that coaches will want to keep their eye on. He’s a dynamic scoring lead guard with nice ball skills.
Noah Pruitt (2020, 5’9″, Okemos)
If a team passes on Pruitt because of height, they’re making a huge mistake. He can facilitate off the dribble and bury a triple with his quick release.
Ian Schuster (2020, 5’10”, Greendale)
Schuster has a solid looking jumper and is comfortable setting the offense. He could have an excellent senior season.
Kyle Sloan (2021, 5’10”, UD Jesuit)
Sloan has a ton of potential. He’s a solid ball handler. If he can reel it in and control his pace, sky is the limit.
Trevor Smith (2021, 6’1″, Stoney Creek)
I feel like Smith is underrated in terms of potential. He can shoot from behind the arc and is steady with the ball. He could end up very high as far as lead guards in the class of 2021.
LeAndre Turner (2021, 6’0″, Sterling Heights Stevenson)
Turner will be fun to watch the next 2 years. He runs the floor well and spaces himself in transition.
Bryan Tyler (2021, 5’9″, Romulus)
Tyler is so dangerous with the ball in his hands. He can create for himself and his teammates. Tyler is a next level player, simple as that.
Emcee Williams (2020, 5’11”, Muskegon Reeths-Puffer)
Williams is as quick as can be. He uses his horizontal speed to create space offensively and to force turnovers on defense.
