Yesterday we took a look at four highly regarded 2022 guards nationally and today we take a peek at a handful of prospects who stand to possibly become really late blooming stories over the next 8-12 months.  Here’s five of them to keep track of as things move forward…

Note – Listed in alphabetical order

Tyler Harmon – 6’1 – G – Ozark (MO)
A tough physical guard with an ability to score at all levels, Harmon fills the box score with his effort and grit.  He can score, he has excellent vision and timing on his passes, and he is an excellent rebounder for a guard.  He’s a max effort talent that can play and he’s one to watch in the 2022 class of Missouri.

Jackson Paveletzke – 6’3 – G – Kimberly (WI)
A highly skilled guard who can excel at either the lead guard or scoring guard positions, Paveletzke brings it all to the court.  He’s instinctive defensively and he can guard both guard positions while also being able to play on and off the ball.  Offensively he’s exceptional as he handles the ball well, sees the floor, and he has a lethal perimeter stroke from beyond the arc.  Mix in intangibles, toughness, and a team first mentality and it’s easy to see him trending upward significantly over the next 8-12 months.

Trey Redd – 5’11 – PG – Normal Community (IL)
An ultra-quick efficient guard with an explosive first step and an ability to score from all levels, Redd is one to know.  His handles combined with his ability to shoot opens a lot of things up for him creatively and he excels at times in that capacity.  A difficult cover for most guards, Redd can really play and he’s one to watch moving forward.

Brady Titus – 5’11 – PG – Tri-Unity Christian (MI)
A solid playmaking guard, Titus sees the floor well and he handles it and both of those attributes help him to be an exceptional playmaking guard that makes others on the court better.  He can score from all levels and he has solid feel to understand balance of when to attack and when to create.  Really like the direction he’s trending to.

Jamauri Winfrey – 6’3 – G – Peoria Richwoods (IL)
He had a quality couple of games at this fall’s NY2LA Sports Futures Camp where he opened a lot of eyes with his ability to fill the box score.  When engaged he’s a fill the box score type who can give you whatever you want scoring, passing, rebounding, etc.  He has nice size and he pairs that with quality athleticism and instincts to make for a highly intriguing and talented guard to watch in the 2022 class.
