2023 G Judah Casaus, of Del Norte High School in Albuquerque, is one of the most electrifying guards in all of New Mexico. He brings to the game an intensity level that is needed to compete at an elevated level and never takes his foot off the gas when he is out on the court. He is one of the main focal points of the state championship squad that has made an impact not only in the state but regionally. He is trending upward and has no plans of stopping until he gets all the attention that he rightfully deserves.

The 6’0 G is exceptionally skilled and can control the pace of the game. He has above average court vision and will find teammates on the floor at any time. He is an elite ball handler who blows by defenders at ease with either hand. He has the upper body strength to get into the paint and finish at the rim with contact with his right or his left hand. He has the unique ability to always know when to make the right play and unlike many others is a true lead guard. He does not make mistakes with the ball in his hands prone and is the vocal leader on out on the court. He has worked steadily at being a more consistent shooter and extending his range. The extra off the court reps have shown to be positive as his confidence has grown and is extremely comfortable being a legit three level scorer on the offensive end.

His defensive abilities are sound when he is on the floor. He tenacity and dedication on the defensive allows him to shutdown opposing guards as well as switch off on bigger opponents. He has extremely high IQ and constantly is playing passing lanes and getting steals leading to transition buckets. He uses his body and boxes out very well for a player his size. He takes pride on the defensive end of the floor, and it translates to positive gain for his team on the offensive end. His exceptional play during the high season last year landed him all-state honors and he is not letting up anytime soon. 

He has caught the eye of some college programs and many more are starting to pay close attention to his development. He currently holds an offer from New Mexico Military Institute, and we fully expect this list to grow as he enters another year of winter ball and gets ready for travel ball after his junior year.
