Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With high school seasons winding down across the country and teams starting their playoff runs, AAU season is right around the corner. Over the next few weeks Future150 will be taking a closer look at some players who appear to be peaking at the right time and are seemingly poised for big springs. Today we are taking a look at the shooting guard group. Some of these players may be familiar names, while others are just beginning to take off.

Jalen Coleman- La Lumiere (IN): Coleman was already a known product who has just continued to get better. He put on one of the most impressive performances at the HoopHall Classic and is the type of scorer that can carry a majority of the offensive load for a lot of programs if need be. Coleman was already considered to be a high major prospect, but has elevated himself to elite category with his performance this winter.

Jalen Adams- Cushing Academy (ME): Adams had a couple of nagging injuries this summer that kept him a bit under the radar. This high school season has made people realize how talented he really is, as he has had his biggest games on the biggest stages. He is a natural scorer who is equally comfortable hitting shots from 20 feet as he is finishing at the rim. We expect plenty of the elite programs to come after him before he ultimately winds things down.

Rex Pflueger- Mater Dei (CA): A known commodity for a couple of years now, Pflueger has to be considered one of the, if not the best shooting guard on the west coast. He has a silky smooth shot with nearly limitless range. He also has good size for his position and is a good athlete as well. He is a high priority for the Pac-12 but his recruitment will take place on the national stage.

Austin Grandstaff- Rockwall (TX):  The former Oklahoma State commit has opened things back up mid-way through a monster junior year and so far it appears to be paying off. Grandstaff is like Pflueger in that he has good size and a great shooting stroke. With knockdown shooters becoming more and more scarce each year, guys like Grandstaff and Pflueger will be even more sought after.

Dejounte Murray- Rainier Beach (WA): Rainier Beach has long been a power in Washington but this year’s group has really burst onto the national scene thanks to a group of high major players. Among those is junior Dejounte Murray, who can play either guard position, but has shown he is best suited off the ball. Murray is a good defender who can also put points up in a hurry. Look for him to really take off this AAU season.

Donovan Mitchell- Brewster Academy (NH): Mitchell began to become a known name last spring and following a move to Brewster Academy, has really seen his stock rise as he has played on the national circuit. He is a super athletic wing who’s game has began to catch up with his athleticism. Look for him to continue to take off this spring.

Donte DiVincenzo- Salesianum (DE): DiVincenzo was considered one of the bigger winners of this past AAU season and through the high school season, has showed zero signs of slowing down. He has established himself as one of the best guards in the Northeast as he has continually had big games against local competition. The future Villanova Wildcat can shoot it from deep as well as be the primary ball handler when needed. He will be a major piece for Team Final this season.

LaGerald Vick- Douglass (TN):  Vick was a standout at the Future150 National Camp in Nashville in October and it appears that he’s used that strong performance as a building block to a highly successful high school season in which he is a finalist for Mr. Basketball in Tennessee. The wing has put up huge numbers all year and the hometown Tigers are hot on his trail.
