One of the elite overall players and top-rated college prospects in the state is a talented member of the state's 2019 class. Shadow Mountain High School's gifted 6-foot-1, 165-pound sophomore point guard Jovan Blacksher is a unique talent in the state of Arizona, and recently led his Shadow Mountain ballclub to a perfect, undefeated season, and their second consecutive state championship.
Blacksher is preparing to begin another club season for himself, but this time it will be with the highlight Adidas-sponsored Compton Magic (CA). Look for Blacksher to raise many eyebrows of college coaches this spring and summer.
Here is a highlight video of one of the state' elite-level talents - proving why he is considered as a special high-major prospect . . .
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: While Blacksher is a smaller point guard prospect, he is a unique talent in the state of Arizona - a highly skilled and talented point guard with an ability to make plays for himself and others almost at will and with flare. This young man is fun to watch perform as he possesses a superb handle of the basketball, excellent court vision and body control, which allows for him to get into the lane when he wants to and make plays at a high level level. He also possesses a nice shooting stroke with excellent range on his shot and a quick release - making him very difficult for opposing guards to defend. He is also an excellent on-the-ball defender and help-side defender that plays passing lanes. Blacksher is a rare find in the state of Arizona, as he possesses a high level of self-confidence in his play, which rubbs off on his teammates and makes players around him much better. I really enjoy watching this young man perform, and will look forward to watching him compete over the next two years of high school. Blacksher is a joy to watch play and already has proven that he is among the state's elite level talents.
