The NFHS Network Starting Five

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 1/23/17 6:08 PM

Check out our weekly look at five of the most impressive basketball players in the country. Familiarize yourself with them, and see what they can do this week on the NFHS Network.

The Starting Five:

Jordan Brown - 6'11" / 205 lbs / Junior / Woodcreek High School, Roseville, CA

The 6'11" Center is ranked as the 5th best player in the country for the class of 2018. He's still got plenty of room to fill out and get stronger, but Brown is already using his athleticism to dominate in the paint.

Watch Jordan Brown and Woodcreek High School TWICE this week, Wednesday AND Friday on the NFHS Network:

Tremont Waters - 5'11" / 165 lbs / Senior / Notre Dame-West Haven High School, West Haven, CT

Coming off of a FIFTY POINT performance including what proved to be the game-winning three, Tremont Waters is looking to keep things rolling this Friday against Hamden Hall.

Cassius Stanley - 6'4" / 165 lbs / Sophomore / Harvard Westlake High School, Los Angeles, CA

Stanley, rated a top 10 player for the class of 2019, is an athletic and polished guard who is only getting better with experience. He's been dealing with an ankle injury, but should be good to go against Loyola on Friday.

Kevin Johnson - 6'5" / 180 lbs / Senior / Loyola High School, Los Angeles, CA

Speaking of Loyola, they're playing previously-mentioned Harvard Westlake this Friday on the NFHS Network. If Loyola hopes to contend, they're going to need a big night from lengthy guard Kevin Johnson.
