One of the better looking prospects in Arizona's 2019 class is Peoria High School's 6-foot-7 sophomore post John Price. Showing very well in this year's recent Arizona Preps Fall Showcase, Price proved why he is considered as a nice post prospect with excellent potential for the future.
Price is a good-sized, lengthy stretch 4-man prospect with very good upside for the future, suggesting that he will only continue to grow physically and should develop over time into a serious division-I prospect. He will need to continue to work very hard, but, if he does, this young man has the potential to open many eyes.
The Peoria High School program is loaded with talent currently, and Price gives them a taller post prospect that can score inside and out and runs the floor, while being able to finish inside the paint. He is a very valuable factor in Peoria's success this high school season and the next two years, and has the potential to make this team exceptional over time.
As a college prospect, Price resembles that of a smaller Michael Humphrey (Stanford University), as he runs the floor in a very similar manner and has long legs and good feet. He also has good hands and is a good finisher around the basket, keeping the basketball up high on rebounds. He is an active rebounder and also has solid low-post moves, although he is still raw and needs continued development as a scorer, but he should progress nicely over time.
I project that Price will develop nicely over the next three years of high school, and should round into a serious college prospect. I will keeping a close eye on this young man - one of the better up-and-rising young prospects in the state.
