TJ Bamba (Lincoln), Sr., G/F — A recent Washington State signee, the 6-foot-5 wing is a slasher (13.5 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.7 spg) capable of playing nearly every position on the floor and guarding each one, too.

Trevor Baskin (Pomona), Sr., F/C — Equipped with long arms and great instincts, the 6-foot-8 Colorado Mesa commit is a defensive menace (4.3 bpg, 3.0 spg) who is a stat stuffer, (16.5 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 5.1 apg) as well.

Dominique Clifford (The Vanguard School), Sr., G/F — A point guard’s skill in a wing’s body, the 6-foot-5 CU commit is 247Sports.com’s top-rated senior in the state. With a unusual mix of athleticism and finesse, it’s easy to see why.

Donta Dawson (Harrison), Jr., SF/PF — Two years into his prep career, Dawson already has 803 career points and 67 3-pointers to his name. With a solid 6-foot-4 frame, he can play a little defense too, (2.2 bpg, 1.3 spg), too.

Julian Hammond III (Cherry Creek), Jr., SG — The quarterback of the Bruins’ state title-contending football team is a fill-it-up scorer on the hardwood. The 6-foot-2 guard poured in 20.5 points per game on 48% shooting as a sophomore.

Ty Foster (Lincoln), Sr., G — A three-time all-Denver Prep League selection, the playmaking guard (13.2 ppg, 4.7 apg, 2.1 spg) is the hub of the Lancers’ offense as well as their best on-ball defender.

Tristan Hurdle (Highlands Ranch), Sr., F — There may not be a prettier jumper in the state than the one belonging to Hurdle, a 6-foot-6 wing who is a career 42.1% shooter from long range (80 of 190).

Graham Ike (Overland), Sr., C/PF — The 6-foot-10 Trailblazers post player was just about an automatic double-double a year ago (17 total) with averages of 17.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

Javonte Johnson (Cheyenne Mountain), Sr., SG/SF — The 6-foot-6 New Mexico commit is the second-ranked senior in the state by 247Sports.com. A season ago, he averaged 22.4 points and 9.8 rebounds per game as a first-team 4A all-state pick.

Kendale Johnson (George Washington), Jr., F — The Patriots’ leading scorer at 18.8 points per game last winter, Johnson closed out his sophomore year with 20-plus points in nine of his last 13 games.

Caleb McGill (Grandivew), Sr., F/C — The 6-foot-7 future UC Davis product spent the summer working on his shooting and ball-handling skills in an effort to further develop an already formidable inside-outside game (11.4 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.5 bpg).

Lucas Moerman (Doherty), Sr., F — A recent Air Force signee, the 6-foot-10 post (12.9 ppg, 11.6 rpg, 3.4 bpg) is an intimidating presence in the paint.

Luke O’Brien (Columbine), Sr., SG — With size, shooting touch and playmaking ability (21.6 ppg, 8.4 rpg and 3.1 apg), the 6-foot-8 CU commit and returning 5A all-state pick is already the Rebels’ all-time leading scorer… one game into his senior year.

Ty Robinson (Eaglecrest), Jr.,  SG — Few match the jump-out-of-the-gym athleticism of Robinson, a 6-foot-5 wing considered a three-star recruit in football and basketball by 247Sports.com. The Minnesota Golden Gophers have already shown interest.

Quinten Rock (Smoky Hill), Sr., PG — A four-year starter and pure point guard at 6-feet, Rock is a master at setting up his teammates for open buckets (7.3 apg) who can also punish defenses with his own scoring (13.9 ppg).

Kobe Sanders (Chaparral), Sr., PG/SG — The left-handed 6-foot all-state returner has a devastating blend of shooting range (147 career 3s) and playmaking ability (16.3 ppg, 3.1 apg) as the leader of last year’s 5A state runner-up.

Christopher Speller (Rangeview), Sr., PG — The MVP of last year’s 5A title game, the taller of Rangeview’s Speller twins (hyper-athletic Christian is 6-foot-2) is a smooth, 6-5 table-setter who excels at getting to the basket and making plays for others.

Jaden Stoffell (Manual), Sr., PG/SG — A first-team all-state selection for last year’s 3A champs, the 6-foot-4 wing is one of the state’s top marksmen from long range (40.4%).

Jalen Weaver (Smoky Hill), Jr., G/SF — Rated a four-star recruit by 247Sports.com, the 6-foot-4 junior showed a glimpse of what’s to come with averages of 11.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last winter.

Rashawn Wilson (Denver East), Jr., PG — The engine of the Angels attack, the 5-foot-9 Wilson is both a floor general (10.3 ppg, 4.9 apg) and defensive irritant (4.1) for one of the Denver Prep League’s top teams.
