The NFHS Network Starting Five

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 1/31/17 5:24 PM

We've got an unbelievable amount of talent on the NFHS Network this week, and even better - THEY'RE ALL PLAYING AGAINST EACH OTHER. Best on Best, just how we like it.

Check out this week's star-studded Starting 5, and watch ALL of them LIVE on the NFHS Network:

Marvin Bagley III - 6'11" / 220 lbs / Junior / Sierra Canyon High School, Chatsworth, CA

Bagley ranks as the #1 player in the country for the class of 2018. Not much else needs to be said.

Watch a high-powered Sierra Canyon team (#3 in the country according to MaxPreps) take on another elite squad, Bishop Gorman, Saturday at 5:45pm PT:

Watch Marvin Bagley III


Billy Preston - 6'10" / 230 lbs / Senior / Oak Hill Academy, Mouth of Wilson, VA

Oak Hill Academy is absolutely loaded with talent. There are probably three or four guys we could've highlighted from them, but it's hard to argue against Preston. 

Good news: you get to watch the future Kansas Jayhawk TWICE this week on the NFHS Network (Friday and Saturday nights) as his Oak Hill team battles Foothills Christian and Chino Hills:

Jaylen Hands - 6'3" / 170 lbs / Senior / Foothills Christian High School, El Cajon, CA

Speaking of Foothills Christian, they have their own bonafide star in the form of future UCLA point guard, Jaylen Hands.

Watch him battle against the aformentioned Billy Preston and Oak Hill Academy Friday night:

Charles O'Bannon Jr. - 6'6" / 200 lbs / Senior / Bishop Gorman High School, Las Vegas, NV

O'Bannon is signed to play at Southern Cal next year, but first he has to deal with a STACKED Sierra Canyon team featuring TWO of our NFHS Network Starting 5 members.

Watch he and Bishop Gorman battle Sierra Canyon Saturday at 5:45 pm PT:

Cody Riley - 6'8" / 240 lbs / Senior / Sierra Canyon High School, Chatsworth, CA

And last but not least, meet Cody Riley - ANOTHER Sierra Canyon star, and ANOTHER UCLA commit. He'll team up with Marvin Bagley and the boys to take on O'Bannon and Bishop Gorman this Saturday.

Watch LIVE at 5:45 pm PT on the NFHS Network:
