The state of Virginia has a good number of prospects in the high school basketball realm. Here’s a look at the Top 10 Point Guards in the Class of 2020.
Jeremy Roach is a big-time point guard prospect out of Paul VI headed to Duke University in Virginia’s 2020 class. Roach missed much of the 2018-19 season with a torn ACL injury but his return should certainly put Paul VI back in the mix as a top national team.
Roach can distribute as well as score the basketball at a high level. He’s a gamer in every word of the sense and there’s a reason he’s headed to Duke after the 2019-20 season.
Xavier Lipscomb took a different route this summer, sitting out the AAU circuit, but it hasn’t slowed down his recruiting much. Lipscomb is a big point guard at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. He can create off the dribble and does well to keep his teammates involved.
Lipscomb will be a prize for a mid-major program at the next level. He holds offers from Drexel, Cleveland State, William & Mary, Howard, Iona, Radford among others.
K.K. Robinson is an Arkansas native, but he’s joined the ranks of one of the top teams in the state of Virginia in Oak Hill Academy. Robinson is an explosive point guard at 6-foot that can really get after it on the hardwood.
He can get after it on both ends with his ability to defend and play above the rim. He’s down to a final seven of Texas A&M, Arkansas, Kansas, Illinois, Iowa State, Vanderbilt and TCU.
Amir Nesbitt is using a change of scenery entering his final season of high school, moving from Virginia Academy to Miller School in Charlottesville. He’s seen his recruitment get a boost after this past summer.
Nesbitt is a do-it-all guard with nice length and a high-level floor game. He can create off the dribble just as much as he can for others. He holds a number of offers including ones from Radford, Oral Roberts, Loyola (MD) and Bryant.
Tim Montgomery is the epitome of a true point guard. He plays at a high level with his ability to defend, run the offense and attack the rim. He’s a point guard with sneaky bounce as well which allows him to put defenders on posters.
Montgomery is listed at just 6-foot but he plays a lot bigger than that with his strength and athleticism. He’s due to make waves at the next level. He holds offers from Howard, Mount St. Mary’s, Norfolk State and Middle Tennessee State.
Norfolk Collegiate has a point guard prospect to keep eyes on. 2020 point guard Jordan Battle is a competitor on the hardwood. Battle is crafty at creating shots off the dribble and can score in bunches.
He can fill the stat sheet up with his ability to score, distribute and rebound. This past season, he put up 28.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 3.9 steals per contest for Norfolk Collegiate. So far, he holds offers from Norfolk State and Hampton.
Mark Sears is an emerging point guard with a nice feel for the game when he’s on the floor. He can shoot it from anywhere on the floor and get to the rim with his ability to handle.
Sears is a smart point guard that doesn’t look to do too much. He stood out this past summer with the Alabama Fusion. He holds offers from Elon, Missouri State, South Alabama and UAB.
Andre Bottoms has worked hard to get to where he is with Oscar Smith. He can shoot the ball from behind the arc, run plays on offense for others and defend the basketball.
Bottoms has a nice handle with the ball in his hands which allows him to create in a variety of ways. When he’s not scoring, he’s getting others involved as the floor general. He holds offers from Hampton and Norfolk State.
Ethan Wilson is a point guard prospect who’s game has really picked up in the past few months. Wilson has emerged as a solid point guard prospect with his knack for scoring and making plays with the ball in his hands.
Wilson has a high IQ for creating off the dribble, making him quite the point guard threat. Georgian Court and Wilmington University are two programs that have offered him already.
Kahleef Jimmison is a two-sport athlete, on the gridiron, he’s a defensive back. On the hardwood, he’s a point guard. He’s got a nice feel for getting to the paint and scoring at the rim with the ball in his hands.
Jimmison can really get out and run the floor. He plays the lanes well on defense to create easy layups in transition. Right now, he holds an offer from Hampton
