Anton a freshman in 19?

Yes hes going into his senior year of high school this year and then will join the Zags for the 2019-2020 season. If he keeps this play up & keeps shooting up the rankings we could be looking at our second McDonalds All-American right out of high school

I just want to see him jump up another 20 rankings or so to become a five star. Then we would have our second five star right out of high school. That would be pretty cool

One heck of a week closes out with a close loss for @twonster4080 as he scored 22 points in a 55-50 loss.

So, finally some coach figured out that Anton needed to be double teamed throughout the entire game?

Isn’t he like 38th now on 247? He’d only need to jump 13 spots I believe. Jaden McDaniels is top 5 and Anton outplayed him in the state championship this past year. After what Anton did this summer he should be top 20 at worst and a 5*

Yes he is and after this tourney and his June he should jump pretty easy. Probably the most underrated player in recruiting, since he does not play on a shoe circuit team.

Btw, does anyone else think that twonster is a freaking awesome nickname?

If my math is right, @twonster4080 averaged 25 PPG at the Peach Invitational, which would make him the 3rd leading scorer in the entire tournament. Not bad from the Gonzaga commit.

My latest spicy take: Anton Watson > Jaden McDaniels.. Watson outplayed JMD in the state title game (Watson scored 22 JMD 14, Zaga Prep won) Also Watson only played 5 EYBL games but put up easily the most dominant stat line of ANY player on this list during that period.

Wow, spicy indeed. Jaden McDaniels is #4 on ESPN's 2019 list.

Other notables:

33 Basla Koprivica
41 Isaac Johnson
49 Anton Watson
69 Drew Timme

His brother Jalen, class of 2016, had a 77 scout ranking but did not make espn’s Top 100. Jaden may join him at SDSU if he doesn’t choose Duke or Kentucky. Federal Way was really fun to watch when both McDaniel brothers were playing.

Jadens listed as 6'11" probably UK Duke or UW if he stays home IMO

He was more like 6'9 in March. I thought he was the better player in the state tourney overall, due to his Magic Johnson-like versatility. (Think both were ranked in the 60's-70's in March). Not surprised that both players are skyrocketing up the rankings this summer. A little shocked that McDaniels reached the top 5-10 due to his slender frame.

But it's great to see, and says a lot, that people in the know think Watson outplayed him, and the case can be made. What I like best about him is that he raises his game in clutch situations, like his dunk over Riley Sorn when the Richland game was tight, or that buzzer beating 3 pointer.

I haven't read much about Watson's defense. This is a good video that shows that he seems to enjoy playing D and especially when it comes to blocking shots. I think he blocks like 4 shots on this video.

Prep is all about D so he has a great mindset. What will be really interesting is what physical changes are in store for AW when he gets to GU. Can he increase his vert a couple of inches? what is his focus going to be? Is he done growing?

Improving his perimeter game on offense and defense. Getting a little quicker. Going to be hard to improve his vertical as it’s already very impressive. Depending on who all leaves after this season, Anton may be our best player the next season.

A 6'9 sf; Rui v 2.0?

Much like Rui especially in that he’s a PF with some ability to play the SF.

What are chances he’s Burger boy? Scale 1 to 10, 10 he’s in the game.

If this wasn’t political, 11. He’s easily top 25 player in the country if not top 10. I’ve heard from multiple people that Few loves the kid. Since it is political, 7?

I think the kid is great. That said, I give it no better than 1 in 3.

I’d give him a slot, but some prefer the ballhog, showboating sort.

you don't think Few or John Stockton have any political sway?

I’ll put it this way, how many of our recruits have played in the game? So no, I don’t believe they do.

That’s not what you initially asked. My answer is still no. Neither of those guys play the political game.
