Many of the state's top overall prospects in the 2022 senior class decided to make their college decisions this fall - leaving some very good prospects still on the table for college programs to pursue and take a hard look at this high school season. One of the state's elite overall prospects that will have a tremendous senior season is Mesquite High School's gifted 6-foot-3, 170-pound senior guard Nate Calmese. Calmese is a superb talent and is coming off a strong spring and summer for himself- setting himself up to have a huge senior season.
There is not a better overall guard prospect in the state, regardless of class, than this young man, as he has proven himself consistently as one of state's best overall talents. Calmese has had a very strong high school basketball career in the state already, and torched his competition this past spring and summer on the club circuit in numerous events. While it was thought by our staff that Calmese would already be off the recruiting board by now, he returns for his senior season as a player and college prospect with something to prove. Trust me, this young man is set to have a tremendous senior season while leading a much more experienced Mesquite team in the 4A Division.
Arizona Preps' Senior Editor Anthony Ray caught up with Calmese this week after he finished with an amazing triple-double performance in this year's Mesa Fear The Hop Tournament @ Mesa High School.
