Here are my new updated and final player rankings and evaluations of the Top 30 prospects in Arizona's 2020 Senior Class. This class of prospects has really developed in the state of Arizona, even though Kyree Walker (Hillcrest Prep), Nico Mannion (University of Arizona), Shon Robinson (Ole Miss), Addison Patterson (University of Oregon) and Jaron Artest (UC-Irvine) each graduated early, and became members of Arizona's 2019 Class of prospects. Even without these elite prospects as part of the class, the class is still absolutely loaded with talented prospects that will now begin transitioning to the collegiate ranks.
Here is Part II (Players ranked 11 through 20) of my final player rankings for the class by numerical order. This list has also been distributed to college coaches, media and scouts around the country . . .

SUPER 30 HS SENIORS IN ARIZONA (CLASS OF 2020)
Name Ht Pos School Evaluation
11. Jhaylon Martinez 6-10 SR C Dream City Christian Prep (Glendale, AZ) – (Signed with UNLV)
Martinez is a big body and strong rebounder with a large physical frame. A strong, physical presence and solid athlete that has a good touch around the basket and good footwork. Runs the floor hard and plays with good aggression. A very strong rebounder and finisher in the paint. Has solid low post moves and is a good shooter from 10 to 15 feet. A good passer out of the post. Capable shotblocker. Has problems with foul trouble, so will need to focus on staying on the floor. One of few post prospects in the class with his combination of size and physical presence on the court. Has some upside.
12. Shemar Morrow 6-4 SR SG/SF Shadow Mountain High School (Phoenix, AZ)
Morrow is well beyond his years physically and has a solid skill level that allows him to make plays from anywhere on the floor. Has seen his time in the post for two years at Shadow Mountain, which has impacted his growth and development as a prospect. A left hander that can score inside and out. Plays with an excellent level of confidence and a high motor. Excellent in the open floor and while slashing to the basket. An excellent finisher and a strong dunker in traffic. A very good defender that plays passing lanes. A big-time rebounder on both ends of the floor. Toughest prospect in the class.
13. Seryee Lewis 6-8 SR PF AZ Compass Prep (Chandler, AZ) – (Kansas State signee)
An athletic, physical post presence that plays physical inside and around the basket. Has a strong, physical frame with excellent toughness as a player. Does not mind physical contact. Runs the floor hard and is a strong finisher in transition. A good low post scorer with a soft touch inside. Has limited post moves still, but is developing. A good shooter out to 15 feet with a soft touch. A solid passer out of the post. A good shotblocker. Competes hard. Has some upside.
14. Evan Nelson 6-1 SR PG Salpointe Catholic High School (Tucson, AZ) – (Committed to Harvard University)
Nelson is a very good looking guard prospect that received loads of recruiting interest early. Has good size for the point guard position. He is a nice scorer, but also knows how to run a team effectively. A good shooter with range, and can stop on a dime and make shots from mid-range with defenders draped all over him. A good penetrator and finisher in traffic. Has quick hands and feet defensively, and applies strong defensive pressure on opposing guards. Plays bigger than his size. An active rebounder. A very good passer that sees the floor and pushes the basketball. Good in the open floor.
15. Trent Hudgens 6-1 SR PG Ironwood HS (Phoenix, AZ) – (Santa Clara University signee)
Hudgens is a nice guard prospect with a slick handle of the basketball and an ability to make plays for himself and others almost at will. He plays with a high level of confidence and is not afraid to mix it up with any level of player. Hudgens has played at the varsity level in the state since entering Moon Valley High School as a freshman – transferred high school programs in his senior season and won a state title. Plays with very serious confidence, an attribute that has benefited him nicely over time, and is now paying off. He is a sure-fire scorer that is capable of making plays off the dribble or shooting the basketball with nice range on his shot. He enjoys getting into the lane and finishing in traffic and over bigger defenders. A very good and complete guard prospect.
16. Deandre Henry 6-7 SR PF PHH Prep (Phoenix, AZ) – (Signed with University of Nevada)
Henry is a big-time two-sport athlete with loads of potential for the future. He currently has numerous offers on the table for himself for football, but is worthy of some serious attention in the sport of basketball as well. Henry is a nice athletic forward prospect with an ability to run the floor hard and make plays on both ends of the floor. He is an active rebounder and is also a strong finisher around the basket. Has solid low post footwork and a good looking jump hook. A strong finisher around the rim. Does not mind physical contact. An active shotblocker. A good finisher in transition. Has excellent toughness. A good sleeper prospect.
17. Jerry Iliya 6-5 SR SG/SF Paradise Honors HS (Phoenix, AZ)
Lliya is an ultra-athletic wing prospect with an ability to play well above the rim in a half-court set or in the full-court, while slashing to the basket. He attempts to dunk everything, every chance he gets and is a human highlight reel in the open floor. While his overall offensive skills still need work, his size and bounce off the floor are very unique. Lliya has an inconsistent shooting stroke still from longer ranges, so he is at his best while slashing to the basket or from mid-range. He is an excellent offensive rebounder after putbacks or dunks off missed shots. Lliya's best attribute is his excellent motor. He has a motor that doesn't stop and continues to run at a high rate for long periods of time on the floor, and never seems to slow down, which allows him to make plays consistently on the court. He has the potential to become a very good defender, as a result of such energy and work ethic. With continued focus, he could become a lock-down defender over time. A definite high level two-way player.
18. Alem Huseinovic 6-3 SR PG/SG PHH Prep (Phoenix, AZ) – (Signed with University of Nevada)
An aggressive guard prospect with a good handle of the basketball and a sharp-shooting stroke with a quick release. Looks to make plays. An excellent shooter with unlimited range on his shot. A specialist as a shooter. A good passer that pushes the ball and sees the floor. A good overall defender that plays with very good intensity. A good rebounder. A good sleeper prospect that should earn minutes at the collegiate level.
19. Maj Dusanic 6-8 SR PF Dream City Christian Prep (Glendale, AZ) - (University of San Francisco signee)
