According to Beach City Hoops their are a couple of Juniors on the Jackrabbits roster who are showing huge upside early on. To start 6'2 G Giordan Williams is an offensive and defensive force with his athleticism, quickness, and length he could surely pose as a strong scoring option for Poly. Second is 5'8 PG Jonathan Hill, who has shown huge improvement in his game over the yearsis showing great court vision and that he can knock down the open jumper. A great contribution to the Darryl Polk/Jesse Galloway backcourt. Lastly there's the 6'0 SG Justin Rene is another guy who can put the ball in the hole at will and with the knowledge and growth that will come with this season and seasons to come you can bet the sky will be the limit for him and the '19 class.
