MILWAUKEE, WI – Now in its twelfth year, the NY2LA Sports Swish ‘N Dish was once again flush with talent, and proved to be the ideal event to kick off another spring season on the youth hoops circuit.

The setting provided an opportunity to see many of the better prospects in the Midwest, and over the course of the three day event, several new prospects emerged. Here’s a look at the point guards from the Class of 2021 that earned attention with their strong play…

Barcus Jackson is a diminutive but tough lead guard that had his entire scoring arsenal on display at the NY2LA Sports Swish ‘N Dish. Jackson was among the event’s scoring leaders, dazzling with his ability to beat opponents off the bounce, and knock down open jumpers. The continued development of his middle game will important but Jackson’s quickness and creativity with the ball solidified his status as one of the event’s top floor generals.

Kobe Johnson has watched older brother, Jalen Johnson, become one of the nation’s most touted recruits in the Class of 2020 during the last year, and now, he’s nearly ready for his breakout season. The playmaking guard fills the mold of a shot-making, facilitator, and it’s likely he’ll sprout several more inches. Deceptive with his handle and first step, Johnson can create space for himself, but his playmaking skills are still evolving. The Wisconsin product should continue to see his stock rise in the Class of 2021.

BJ Jones was one of the more dynamic backcourt prospects in the eighth grade division of the NY2LA Sports Swish ‘N Dish. A capable scorer with passing ability, Jones consistently got the best of opposing defenses, keeping defenders off balance. Jones earned high marks due to his variety of skills in the backcourt, and as he learns to impact the game without the ball, he is a name worth remembering in an Indiana class that is quickly beginning to take shape.

Kevin Miller, more affectionately known as ‘Boopie’, has already developed a reputation among peers in the Class of 2021. Despite his size, Miller’s play was exceptional at the NY2LA Sports Swish ‘N Dish, as he helped lead Mac Irvin Fire to the championship game. Confident and aggressive, Miller is quick with the ball, and surprised with his ability to finish in the lane. He’s a capable perimeter shooter and is a pest for opponents on the defensive side of the ball. Miller needs to begin adding strength to his frame, and will be closely monitored to determine if his standout play will translate to the high school level, where defenders are bigger, faster, and stronger.

Kimahri Wilson graded out as the highest-rated point guard at the NY2LA Sports Swish ‘N Dish from the Class of 2021. His quickness and handle are elite, and he sliced opposing defenses with ease, showing creativity and vision as a passer throughout the weekend. Wilson is thin, but he’s crafty with the ball, and showed the ability to finish and make plays in the lane. The next step for the Illinois native will be showing improved consistency and range with his perimeter jumper. Regardless, Wilson has been missing from the national depth chart among lead guards, and that should change immediately.
