Being a basketball fan, you are always looking at the future of basketball. You are looking at who’s up next, and with the media today it is easy to find out about these guys. The way game has changed and the way the game is played today has some of 18 or 19-year-old training with coaches to get ready for the NBA. They have young men preparing to play in pros but polishing their game for the NBA so that when they go to college or overseas, they have that skill set. Some players receive more recognition than others, but their skillset and presence should not be forgotten. Here are five High School Players to watch out for.

5. Kyree Walker

Position: Shooting Guard
Class:2020
Rank:33 (ESPN.com) 34 (247sports.com)
Hometown/ School: Phoenix, AZ/ Hillcrest Prep

Kyree Walker is a hybrid wing player that can also play the guard, with his 6’4 and 200 lbs frame he can get to the basket and finish at the rim. He has a great transition game where he can finish at the rim or take the outside shot. Walker can also get physical down low with his frame.  Walker has not committed to any schools yet but has offers from schools like Arizona, Memphis, UCLA, Kansas, and  Michigan. Look out for Kyree Walker to make some noise this year he is only a four-star recruit, but that will not stop him from putting on a show in his senior year.


4. Zion Harmon

Position: Point Guard
Class: 2021

Hometown/ School: Benton, KY/ Marshal County

Zion Harmon is a 5’10 guard who can create for himself and his teammates. He is a shifty guard with a quick first step. Harmon has a nice shooting touch and can shoot off the dribble. Walker is two years away from college but has narrowed his list of schools to seven they include Kanas, Kentucky, LSU, Murray State, Seton Hall, Louisville, and Western Kentucky. Harmon will look to make a big splash and move up in the rankings.


3. Noah Farrakhan

He played at IMG academy last year with Jaden Springer but decided to transfer back home to New Jersey. Farrakhan has offers from schools like Florida, Rutgers, Maryland, and Iona.  He is unranked, and this upcoming season he will look to make a name for himself and take over the New Jersey basketball scene.
