The 2019 class includes heavy hitting guards like Brynna Maxwell (Utah) and Grace Sarver (WSU), but the senior class has solid depth at the guard position. Prep Girls Hoops features five guards worth checking out before they move onto the college ranks.
2019 guards to watch:
Ashlee Maldonado, 5’7, PG, Sunnyside HS- Ashlee has been an impact player at Sunnyside dating back to her freshman season. She is an explosive scorer and very quick with the ball in her hands. She changes directions with the best of them and she is a pesky defender. Ashlee is on pace to break her sister’s scoring record at Sunnyside High School. After placing her name in the record books, she will head to Santa Clara University of the West Coast Conference.
Aspyn Adams, 5’8, SG, Mt. Spokane HS- There is not a better catch and shoot three point shooter in the state. Statistically, there has never been a better three point shooter than Aspyn Adams. She will walk away from her high school career with multiple shooting records across all classifications. Aspyn is capable of making 8 or more threes in a single game when she starts feeling it. She is a high IQ player that can perform well in a half-court system, as well as shooting the long ball in transition at a high rate. The Mt. Spokane product will suit up for Loyola Marymount University following her senior year.
Madison Dubois, 5’8, PG, Woodinville HS- “Maddy” Dubois has a worker’s mentality and has improved her game a lot over the course of the last few years. After leading Woodinville to the 4A state title game, she spent the summer playing under Coach Nick Crossan’s EBC program. Coach Crossan raves when speaking about Maddy’s basketball IQ and shooting ability. He also mentioned to Prep Girls Hoops that “She’s become a winner…I think her work habits will help her have success at the next level, because she’s going to continue to get better.” The next level will take place at Seattle University for the sharpshooter. Seattle U is excited to have her shooting range, basketball IQ and work ethic on campus starting next summer.
Jasmine Gayles, 5’7, PG, West Seattle HS- One of a handful of impact guards at West Seattle. Jasmine is an extremely smart player on the floor and a good athlete. She has good body control and rebounds the ball at a high rate for her size. She is a quality scorer at the high school level, capable of putting up big numbers at times. Jasmine will be a key piece in West Seattle trying to win a 3A State Championship. Jasmine’s recruitment is still open at this time.
Taylor Flores, 5’8, SG, Auburn Mountainview HS- The Auburn Mountainview product is one of the best shooters in the state. Her shooting form is consistent from all levels on the floor. Taylor’s shooting ability opens up opportunities to attack off the bounce and she is an above average ball handler. Small schools from the midwest and east coast have reached out, but her recruitment is still open at this time. As a tireless worker and high academic student, Taylor will surely land on someone’s college roster.
