Tri-Regions Top 30 of 2021 (UPDATED)

(By: AlamoCityHoops Staff)

 

In recent weeks, the 2021 class, once echoed and compared to the extremely deep and talented 2017 class, has been hit by some key transfers. With that said, there remains a solid amount of talent in this Top 30 group. We give you an overview and look at the Top 5 prospects, and the rest of the top juniors in the Texas Tri-Regions.

After a very impressive summer, Jerrell Colbert (Cornerstone HS), solidified himself at the number one spot. A legit 6’10” center, he showed tremendous strides offensively around the basket and in the paint. He will use both hands, utilize above average footwork, and then with his length, finish strongly above the rim. He occupies the paint defensively and is a force. Rated a high 4- and 5-star prospect by recruiting outlets.


Another coveted national prospect is super athlete Kevin “KJ” Adams (Westlake HS). A long lanky wing, standing 6’6”, is one of the most athletic prospects we’ve ever seen. Known for his slashing, attacking off the bounce and finishing ability, Adams showed that he can dial up the set shot from outside, and even use a soft touch on the mid-range. His length and quickness always make him a threat defensively, as he’s actively disrupting passing lanes and in the open court, will make plenty of highlight reels.


More offers have started to come in for number three in our list, Joseph Venzant (Midland Christian HS). At 6’3” possesses good size as a combo guard, and most importantly displayed that he can handle the ball and play as a point guard first. Was one of the standouts from Session 2 of the NCAA Academy this past summer and had no problems playing the off spot either. Very heady IQ and uses the mid-range jumper effectively and consistently. Motor is always running high and plays hard every minute on the court. Is an above average defender who has no problem in drawing tough defensive assignments.


We go back to Central Texas for #4, and this is where you’ll find Noah Robledo (Leander HS). A prospect whose stock rose after an impressive summer circuit on the EYBL. Standing 6’6”, thin and lengthy, he’s a very athletic wing who has worked on his overall game, to include an improved perimeter shot. High intensity, high effort kid who has the athleticism, skillset, and quickness to impact the game on both ends. Because of his athleticism and leaping ability, is very tough to stop off the bounce.


Rounding out our Top 5 in the group is Bryon Armstrong (Antonian HS).  The guard prospect created a stir this summer by showing that he can be a floor general, running the point spot for his Adidas Gauntlet team. Has a strong build and uses his 6’3” size very well. On several occasions showed plenty of range connecting from beyond the 3-point line and uses his deceptive quickness to attack off the dribble. Uses his left-handed stroke to finish and one of the better rebounding guards you will find. Plays physical and hard-nosed, will score the rock if you need it, and now brings the aspect of being a distributor too.
