NO. 8 SIERRA CANYON
Location: Chatsworth, California
Preseason Rank: 8
2018-19 record: 32-3
Final 2018-19 Super 25 ranking: 12
The Trailblazers got a talented influx of five-star talent in the offseason, but the brightest star Ziaire Williams, a senior wing who is ranked No. 9 overall in the Chosen 25, won’t be eligible until Dec. 29, according to the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section. That’s 27 points, 10.5 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks a game – Williams’ averages at Notre Dame High School (Sherman Oaks, California) last season – in street clothes for more than 10 games.
Still, Sierra Canyon has a plethora of talent that will keep them favored through most games.
Senior shooting guard B.J. Boston, a Kentucky commit who is ranked No. 14 overall in the Chosen 25, versatile senior forward Terren Frank, a TCU commit, sophomore shooting guard Amari Bailey, senior shooting guard Zaire Wade, son of Dwyane Wade, and freshman point guard Bronny James, son of LeBron James, give the Trailblazers a star-studded lineup full of versatile playmakers.
Sierra Canyon has the talent to hold down the proverbial fort until Williams returns to the lineup.
