Every year, the Nike Hoop Summit is one of the premier high school basketball events in the world. It features the top high school senior basketball players in the USA against the best basketball players 19 and younger across the world.
Four seniors playing high school ball in California–Josh Christopher, Jalen Green, Evan Mobley, and Ziaire Williams–were named to the USA Junior National Select Team, which has 12 roster spots. They will take on the World Team in the 23rd annual Summit at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, at 7 p.m. on April 10th.
Josh Christopher is a 5-star shooting guard who plays for Mayfair (Lakewood). The 6-5, 210 wing is currently averaging 30.1 points, 11.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.5 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game for the Monsoons on 49% shooting from the field.
A Fresno native, Jalen Green is another 5-star SG/CG who currently plays for Prolific Prep in Napa. He’s most recently listed at 6-6, 180, and like Christopher, he holds roughly 20 college offers and is still uncommitted.
A 7-0, 205-pound C/PF, Evan Mobley is considered by many the top high school prospect in the C/O 2020. He plays for Rancho Christian in Temecula and will join his brother Isaiah Mobley at USC next year.
Lastly, Ziaire Williams is another 5-star prospect at Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth). The 6-8, 190-pound small forward has not yet committed for college.
