North Carolina’s class of 2022 brings a lot of intrigue and depth for college coaches, which is why there are a few players to really watch this summer and their recruitment, as they could see an uptick with their play. The point guard position is one area that has several players that could help a program down the road, which is why we are going to take a look at a few players that have slid under the radar or have been a little quiet coming into this summer but could really see more attention with the summer they put together. Check out Part 1 of our list of players to watch.
2022 Amare Haynie (WS Christian)
A few may have forgotten or had a “slipped my mind” moment with 2022 6’4 Amare Haynie from Winston Salem Christian. It has been a while since seeing him on the court, missing the entire high school season and concentrating on his rehab but he seems to be ready to roll to showcase that he is back better than ever.
Now, one may be confused to see him on this list as he holds an impressive list of offers already but more could be on the horizon if he is able to show his explosion, his play-making ability, and leadership in running an offense at a high level; it is something he has shown on several occasions beforehand and he should only become a bigger target by schools.
2022 Jaquantae Harris (Northwood Temple)
Harris missed all of last summer due to injury but was able to get back on the court to help Northwood Temple to a terrific season. But one could see that he wasn’t fully back to what he showed before his injury, which is why this summer is a big one for the point guard.
Harris has shown that he is ready to unleash his talent and skills and showing why more schools should be coming his way. He is a strong, tough guard that excels in getting downhill and finishing, while also displaying his pull-up game.
With him fully being back, Harris hopes this is the summer that he gets to show his full arsenal, something he didn’t get the opportunity to do last summer.
2022 Khalil Marshall (Word of God)
Marshall is one of my favorite guards to watch in the 2022 class and one that continues to be underrated in our eyes. We are talking about an experienced, quick, tough, gritty floor general that excels in the open floor, displays tremendous handles, a great change of direction, and can be tough on the defensive end.
Playing with Team United this summer could be a great opportunity for him to show more of his game and display that he is a player that D1 schools should be looking more at.
These are just a few point guards to watch this summer, as they are coming off a tremendous season or are looking to come back even stronger but they are certainly ones that can help a program win games at the next level. We will be bringing you part 2 soon.
