The summer and grassroots season has always been a time when players work on improving their game and then making a statement. I am covering three players to remind, and show, scouts and coaches exactly how talented they are.
Christian Johnson 2021 CG L’Anse Creuse North
Johnson is an outstanding combo guard with well-rounded skill set. He has good handles and good court awareness. He creates space for his jump shots and finds teammates on dribble penetration. He attacks the rim without fear. He consistently plays hard.
Jaylen Davison 2021 6-3 CG Walled Lake Central
Davison is a consistent combo guard who can catch and shoot and hit the open three point shot. He can handle the primary ball handling duties and run the offense. He knows how to attack angles and get to the basket and finish. Consistent effort is needed on defense but he plays hard and that will come.
Sam Krist 2021 6’6” SG Rockford
Krist is an excellent player who is very competitive. He can push hard on the break and also knock down his open jump shots. Very good shooter when stepping into it from the wings. Will pass, move, rebound, and generally make the right play, which shows excellent basketball IQ.
