Midwest’s Mosiah’s – Sean Jones & John Mobley Jr. Represent two of the Nations Best

Sean Jones PG (2022) – Already considered one of the nation’s top PG’s in the class of 2022 Sean Jones has further expanded his skill set since we have last seen him.  Appearing at Basketball Spotlight Clash for the Cup Jones was impressive as usual.  Already having proved on the highest level the ability to operate at the lead guard position by displaying pace, court vision and elite level passing ability Jones has added to an already diverse package by adding strength and if it can be believed quickness.  

Jones, who already plays in attack mode on the offensive end of the floor where he can finish on the break, get to the rim, and work in the mid-range has now added the ability to knock down the open or contested three.   He shot with confidence from distance well beyond the stripe and shot an excellent percentage; this expansion to his game allows him to slide over to the two-guard spot with equal effectiveness and to allow him to impact the game in more ways.  The key in youth basketball at the elite level is the same key at the highest level; continued expansion of skill set - Jones is clearly on a solid trajectory and remains a top 10 national prospect without question.

John Mobley Jr. PG (2024) – The nation’s number one player has been putting in work for several months and stepped onto the stage at the Clash for the Cup in impressive fashion.   The strong fundamental development was immediately apparent, seeing him snap two-handed passes in the half court set that always landed in the shooter's pocket  was tremendously impressive and something that isn’t mastered by many players even at the high school level.  Mobley advances the ball in transition and shows a nice feel for the game overall. In transition, he has the ability to knock down the pull up trey ball, work in the mid-range with the stop and pop and also works the paint well finishing with an array of finishes which include a lethal floater package.

As the premier PG in the country the scoring is an added bonus, his lead guard skills are a dream come true – the handle and dexterity is well beyond his years, the ability to push and pull and space – post feed and drive and kick are all tools that will only become clearer to scouts as his strength increases.  Only a baby this is an instance where you can project a player to a high level at a very young age.  This is one of the special stories in youth basketball that all should take notice of – this kid is going to do big things in the future.
