High school basketball will be here before you know it, and there has been plenty of news already around the high school landscape. Phenom Hoops has been diving into some of the storylines and rosters we have seen already, and will only continue that in the coming days/weeks. One storyline that we have on our mind will be the dynamic guards that will be looking to lead the way at Indian Land this upcoming season.
2026 Mike Jones and 2024 Sincere Rasul return what was a special duo already at Indian Land, as Jones is coming off a freshman season in which he averaged 20.2ppg while Rasul wasn’t far behind at 17.1ppg. But now, in recent news, it was announced that 2024 Quay Watson will now be joining that group as well, giving Indian Land a trio of guards that absolutely can fill it up.
Just check out what we have said about each in the past:
2026 Mike Jones
“He is quick and explosive, quite shifty in getting around defenders, understands how to get inside and get to the basket, and just has a natural feel as a playmaker with the ball in his hands. Jones easily will be a prospect college coaches will want to see, and the more he develops, the more dangerous he will become.”
2024 Quay Watson
“He’s a smart, polished, well-rounded guard prospect with a high comfort level from either backcourt position. Watson reliably controls the pace and dictates the action with the ball in his hands, but can also fill it up as a scorer alongside another primary ball-handler. He’s quick, crafty, and able to consistently generate shots for himself and others. Watson scores the ball at an efficient rate from all levels, sets up others at a high volume, and defends his position very well defensively. Although he already has the numbers to back up his ability, Watson should see a definite uptick in recruitment over the coming months.”
2024 Sincere Rasul
“Rasul is one of several players that should garner attention this weekend for the Upward Stars Carolina. Rasul though was part of the guard duo that produced on Day 1, showing how quick he can be, his burst to get by defenders, and his playmaking ability off the dribble. Was able to make plays out in transition, get inside the paint at times, and finish well.”
