Prospect Watch | Two Guards 2024
Here is a list of shooting/scoring guards to be on the lookout for this high school season. Most of these two guards had a really good summer seasons and are looking for it to translate into the upcoming high school season.
Nathan Law 6’6” | St. Thomas Episcopal BSH80
Nate is another tenured varsity player. He led the Saints to the TAPPS 4A State Championship game last season, and a 30-8 record on the year. Nate handles the ball well. He can create his own shot. He will dunk it on your head. He can shoot from the perimeter. He is good in catch and shoot situations in a half-court set. He will be looking to lead his team back to the state championship game and walk away as the state champion in his senior campaign. He currently holds offers from UTRGV, Army, and Air Force.
Jayden Gambrell 6’3” | Houston Madison BSH80
Gambrell's ability to score the basketball is top notch. When he wants to fully compete on both ends he is dangerous. The fast pace tempo of the Marlins will allow for him to have another huge season. He was named District MVP last season as he led the team to a 24-8 record and was the number one scoring team in the state last year with a 82.6 point per game average. Jayden is a downhill guard that can score the ball on all levels. He is very athletic and used that to almost average a double-double last season. It will be interesting to see what kind of senior year he has. Currently holds an offer from Lamar.
Daylon Porter 6’5” | Cypress Falls BSH80
Daylon has been a varsity letterman since his freshman year with the Golden Eagles. He is a part of a 72-23 overall record and 30-12 in district play. Daylon is a downhill guard that is physical when attacking the rim. His strength allows him to finish through contact with ease. His jumper has continued to improve year after year making him a better rounded guard. He has good lateral movement as well allowing him to guard quick small guards. His team will be a fun one to watch this season.
Jerrell Barron Jr. 6’4” | Atascocita BSH80
We mentioned him in an earlier article as one of our sleepers. Big time shot maker. His IQ for the game is higher. Will he have that Peach Jam effect coming into the season? He is starting to play more above the rim to be more of just a perimeter threat and good defender. Like we stated earlier it will be interesting to watch him.
Chris Adlam 6’4” | Houston Christian BSH80
Chris had a really big summer campaign and looks to carry it over into his senior season this year. Chris was yet another prospect that participated in the Prospect EXPO last year, took our evaluation that we gave to him and put in the work. Chris was a streaky shooter that we saw become more of a consistent shooter. Last season we saw him hit a couple of game winning buckets for the Mustangs. Chris is very athletic and a player who will put you on a poster. He can guard multiple positions on the court as well. He brings that winning mentality to his team and has a never say die attitude on the court. The offers he holds are from Texas A&M Commerce, Dallas Baptist, and Oklahoma City University.
Aaron Perez 6’3” | Klein Collins BSH80
Perez is a streaky shooter, but when he is on he is on. Perez has a smoothness to his game. He is a good corner shooter and solid in catch-n-shoot situations. He will be a big factor for the success of the Tigers this season. Last season he averaged 12.1 points and 2.1 assists per game last season while shooting 33% from three-point land. This senior campaign for Perez should be a special one. After watching him at the rucker on wood I’m excited to see how he leads his team this season.
Cameroon Woodberry 6’5” | Good Vision Academy BSH80
Cam put on a display last season in very big-time matchups where he was lights out from the perimeter. He is making the move from PSAT Academy to Good Vision Academy. Both teams play in the SWAIC. Last season he played for PSAT Academy where he averaged 10.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.6 steals per game while shooting 39% from beyond the arc. Woodberry's ability to stretch out the floor will be huge for the Wolves this year. He is on a team with a lot of talent around him once again so it will be interesting to see if he can up his play this year.
Caleb Evans 6’4” | Klein BSH80
Caleb is set to have a big senior season for the Bearkats. Evans will have the entire program on his shoulders for his senior campaign. He is a prospect that I like to call a swiss army knife. You can plug him in almost anywhere on the floor offensively and could be a mismatch for bigs and guards, as well as, give him the assignment to guard the 2-4 on the court defensively. He has been on varsity since a freshman also and they have gone 29-8 in district play and never missed the playoffs since he’s been on campus. Evans is a strong guard or wing depending on what you need. He can shoot it from the perimeter. He can play with his back to the basket. He is active on the glass. Has a solid basketball IQ.
