Opposing coach scouting report

“TJ is proof that hard work pays off. I don't mean the normal hard work that most young people put in and think they are getting one-up on their opponents. I know for the last five years plus (probably way longer than that), TJ has paid the price six days a week, several hours a day, at an intensity level that most players never reach. It is no accident that he can do the things he does on a basketball court. Honestly, there isn't much he can't do. He is special.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“May have been the most underrated player going into the state tournament, but at the state tournament he was able to show what he is capable of. He may be undersized in the post but never outworked. He is crafty around the basket and is able to get to the free-throw line as good as any big I've coached against. He is a tireless rebounder and very good at getting catches in the paint.”

27 points vs. Herriman on Jan. 17.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Ryan Andrus was a game-planning nightmare for us. He's not 6-6, he's 6-11, which has its obvious defensive benefits, and he did make it very difficult for us to score in the paint. But, our biggest challenge was defending him. He's not just tall, but he is a physically strong player who possesses a solid collection of low-post moves. And then when you add in that he can also shoot the trailer 3 well and find open teammates, Ryan was one of the most challenging players we faced the past three years.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Jesse Wade is one of the toughest players in the state to guard for any defender. He has the unique ability to score in so many ways — whether it is coming off of a screen to a jump shot, driving to the paint and scoring at the rim, or using his middle game off of the dribble to create a scoring opportunity for himself. He has a super quick release with great range and a great feel for the game, which makes him just as dangerous finding open teammates for open shots. I was very impressed with his versatility and ability to make big plays at crunch time for the Darts in big games.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Able was the engine that made the Davis machine go. To beat the Darts you had to game plan to take him away — easier said then done. Abel is as quick of a guard as there is in the state and at 6-2 that makes him an extremely hard player to stop. Able also improved his 3-point shooting this year so much that you could not leave him after he gave up the ball. The bottom line is that Abel Porter was a winner while at Davis."

Opposing coach scouting report

“He is a terrific all-around player. Offensively can beat you with his jumper or go to the hoop on you with his speed and quickness. He is a shutdown defender with both strength and quickness to guard a variety of players. He always gives his team whatever they need from him on any given night. If they need scoring, he scores. If they need rebounding and assists, he does that. He always finds ways to positively impact the game.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Noah Togiai is the finest athlete I have recently seen in all of Utah athletics. His ability to stretch the floor offensively creates problems for opponents. We had no answer to his best play regardless of the defensive scheme used this season. He shoots well from the perimeter and penetrates effectively. Defensively he is a force with an ability to cover the floor quickly and he possesses great speed in transition. He is an amazingly likable person with a great attitude of enjoying the game and first-class behavior on the court.”

“He is the leader on his team. He really has a good ability to manage and control games and plays with a confidence that is contagious throughout his teammates. He is a terrific 3-point shooter who seems to always hit the important shots down the stretch and is equally capable around the hoop. For me it's all the little things he does at all the right times, either getting an important rebound or finding a teammate for an open shot. He is always making plays. He simply makes everyone around him better.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“In my opinion, Elijah is the most-improved player in the region. He was a good player last year, but he was a great player this year. He is stronger and more skilled this year, which created matchup problems for opposing teams. He could post you up on the block or hit the 3-point shot. He appeared to be a great teammate and was definitely a factor in the success that Davis had this year."

Opposing coach scouting report

“Zach is one of the best HS basketball players in the state. So many things he does to help his team win do not show up in the box score. He can play multiple positions. He understand the flow of the game and wants the ball in his hands at the end of the game. He was surrounded by good players, but I doubt Alta would have had the success they had without him. Zach is tough, hard-nosed and a solid on-ball defender. He understands what he can and can't do and stays under control. Zach moves extremely well without the ball and does an exceptional job of reading screens. He is a good 3-point shooter with great shot preparation, and when he gets his feet set he shots it as well as anyone in the state.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Plays with such an aggressive spirit on both offensive and defensive ends. He is an intelligent player that knows what his opponent is trying to do and he is very good at disrupting the flow of any team. He was willing to be the consummate teammate, which meant he might need to score that particular night or his team might need him to get big rebounds or he might simply need to be the defensive stopper. Sometimes because of his frenetic pace at which he plays, his basketball skills may go unnoticed, such as shooting ability, passing ability and playmaking ability."

“Sydney Freeman is a leader and a winner. As a three-year starter, his game has continued to improve, as has his capacity to make big plays when his team has needed them the most to win games. His extraordinary quickness in driving to the basket, nice outside shooting touch, and ability to distribute the ball made him next to impossible to defend. He is also a young man of great character and sportsmanship who respects the game. Our program will miss competing against him.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Jariesse is one of the most athletic post players we have seen in our region for quite some time. Offensively, he was very good off the dribble and getting to the basket. Jariesse showed great consistency in his ability to hit mid-range jump shots. In addition, he was someone you always had to track in transition because he ran the floor so well and was a very strong finisher. Defensively, Jariesse's length made it difficult to score at the basket. He was a player that played both ends of the floor and would oftentimes lead the Lancers in rebounding. In my opinion, if Jariesse develops his shooting range and ability to defend the perimeter, he could become an extremely good college basketball player.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Brock Miller is the type of player that can beat you behind the 3 with such precision and can take the ball to the rim and finish. Playing Brighton you have to key on him at all times and not allow him any space. With that said, he can still get free and make plays. The most impressive aspect of his game is that he is willing to do the small things that help his team win games. Brock has a bright future next year as a senior and several years to come on the court.”

“Landon Albrecht is the triple-threat. He has great ballhandling skills that draw all post players guarding him to be away from the rim. Then if you put a guard on him he can post them up and creates mismatches. But the thing he does the best is he can defend a post or the opponent's best guard. He makes it very difficult playing against him because he does all of these things really well.”

“Mike Hibbert was one of the most versatile post players in the state of Utah this year. He had a unique combination of offensive skills to try and defend because he could post up on the block and score in the paint or he could spot up and score with his jump shot, even out to the 3-point line. I have not seen a lot of 6-9 high school post players that have that kind of versatility. And when you consider his ability to knock down free throws consistently for the Lancers, he was also a huge factor in Layton’s very successful basketball season.”
