Ten impact players to watch as the boys basketball season tips off:
10. Maurice Kirby, forward, Poston Butte: Still filling out his frame, but potential is there, as evidenced by Arizona State scholarship offer.
9. T.J. Burke, forward, Marcos de Niza: Good scorer and rebounder down low.
8. Torren Jones, forward, Basha: Still raw, but he runs the floor well and already is a good defender.
7. Camyn Boone, Mountain View: The burly forward has a nice touch around the basket.
6. Collin Woods, guard, Horizon: Scoring point guard can get points in bunches.
5. Larry Lewis, guard, Arcadia: Great athleticism and can really get hot from the outside.
4. Calean Robinson, guard, Corona del Sol: The athletic lefty can get into the paint with ease and has an improving jump shot.
3. Jordan Baker, guard, Tempe: He missed much of last season after breaking his hand, but will carry the Buffaloes this year.
2. Cameron Forte, forward, McClintock: The smooth point forward can sometimes get lackadaisical, but when he’s motivated, he’s very tough to stop.
1. Jahii Carson, guard, Mesa: No one in the state can stop him from getting in the lane, and he has a good outside shot when needed.
