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 III (Players ranked 21 through 30) 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 . . .
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report
SUPER 30 HS SENIORS IN ARIZONA (CLASS OF 2020)
Name Ht Pos School Evaluation
21. Tay Boothman 6-1 SR PG/SG Buckeye High School (Buckeye, AZ) - (Signed with Houston Baptist University)
Boothman is a combo-guard prospect with a very nice offensive skillset that allows him to make plays for himself and others at a high rate. He is an excellent shooter of the basketball with unlimited range and a very pure shooting stroke that allows him to make shots consistently, even with defenders draped all over him. Boothman is much more of a scorer at this point in his young career, but he is capable of playing both guard positons on the floor. He is at his best though when shooting the basketball, so he will need to develop in his ability to become a playmaker over time over time. But what he does well, he does very well - shoot the basketball and score the basketball off the dribble. He is a very good finisher in the lane and is able to make plays in traffic, over bigger defenders with a variety of floaters. He is a good ball handler and passer as well, but really focuses on scoring the basketball, so that may determine his level of college over time. Defensively, Boothman has very good athleticism and lateral quickness, which allows him to play passing lanes. He has quick hands and feet and is able to stay in front of his man - a very good one-one-defender. Has a nice personality.
22. Kiimani Holt 6-3 SR SG PHH Prep (Phoenix, AZ) - (Signed with Portland State University)
A high-energy guard prospect that likes to make plays for himself off the dribble. He has an OK shooting stroke with limited range, and still needs to become more consistent from longer ranges to open up the rest of his game. He is an elite finisher at the rim for his size and strong slasher in the open floor, where he thrives. A high-major athlete. A good ball handler that can create. A good passer, although he needs to continue to develop this area of his game to make players around him better. An active rebounder. Pushes the ball up the floor. A good defender with very good lateral quickness and quick hands. A capable lock-down defender over time, if he continues to focus on this area of his game.

Watson is a versatile wing prospect, much like his older brother Paul Watson (Fresno State graduate), and has long arms and broad shoulders, also just like his older brother.
