Boys Basketball Players to Watch in Washington 2018-19

Boys Players to Watch

We asked our panel of coaches from around the state to name the players they expect to have the biggest impact in 2018-19. Each coach took into consideration the quality of the player’s contributions to their team’s ability to win games, as well as the value of their role on their respective teams.

Some players listed may not be stat sheet stuffers, but they are recognized by the coaches as keys to their team’s success. This list includes every player that was mentioned by our Coaches Panel.
