** 2019 Players
Carl Lewis 6’9” 2019 Lynwood (Lynwood CA)
One of the hottest names in the 2019 class that is rapidly acquiring national respect, Lewis (a Compton HS/CA transfer) is a very physical and active post-forward force that also has a surprisingly accurate touch from 3-point range. Older brother Javonntie Jackson played at Compton HS and is now a 6-6 freshman wing at Long Beach State.
Elijah Scranton 6’6” 2019 Village Christian (Sun Valley CA)
Athletic swingman can finish in transition and has an accurate perimeter jump-shot in his arsenal as well. HM prospect.
Gianni Hunt 6’2” 2019 Bishop Montgomery (Torrance CA)
Dazzling PG has an excellent handle and underrated scoring touch. Cut from same basketball-style mold as a Brandon Jennings and Kenny Anderson.
Makani Whiteside 6’2” 2019 St. John Bosco (Bellflower CA)
Big time scoring lead guard with emerging athleticism, I expect Whiteside (an excellent student) to continue to improve under 2nd year SJB coach Matt Dunn (who directed Damien HS to a CIF State title in 2015).
Oscar Lopez 6’2” 2019 Lynwood (Lynwood CA)
Strong off-guard with excellent basketball instincts, Lopez is a real player to track in this SoCal class of 2019.
Cade Potter 6’8” 2019 Orange Lutheran (Orange CA)
Hybrid-forward with nice perimeter face-up game. Good student.
Finnley O’Rourke 6’6” 2019 Brentwood (Los Angeles CA)
Very improved perimeter forward can score off the bounce and also has range on outside shot.
Jonathan Daniels 5’11” 2019 Heritage Christian (CA)
Steady PG makes wise decisions.
Graham Cook 6’3” 2019 La Costa Canyon (Carlsbad CA)
Sharp-shooting off-guard has nice dribble pull-up jump shot.
Jayden Shackelford 6’1” 2019 Oak Hills (Hesperia CA)
Pass-first lead guard has nice court vision.
Dylan Aiono 6’5” 2019 Roosevelt (Eastvale CA)
Big wing has nice package of offensive skills.
Joseph Octave 6’3” 2019 Mary Star (San Pedro CA)
High scoring wing guard has 3-point range
Max Cheylov 6’3” 2019 Faith Baptist (Canoga Park CA)
Excellent 3-point shooter!
