North Fremont junior point guard Jordan Lenz has only been starting for the Huskies for one season but in that season he racked up some serious awards including All-Idaho 2A player of the year.

Lenz received more recognition Friday, this time from a publication outside of Idaho, when a Stadium Talk article by Florida-based Tony Adame named Lenz the best player in Idaho.

Adame said in the article that he picked players based on who he would take if he had the number one pick and had to pick only from the players in an individual state.

“The tape on Jordan Lenz tells the story of why he’s the best high school basketball player in Idaho — and still has two years left to play,” according to Adame.

Lenz averaged 15 points, 3.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 4.5 rebounds for the Huskies on the way to the 2A state title last season.

The article mentions how Lenz excelled in the state championship game where he scored 20 points.

The article listed a player from each of the 50 states. Many of the players are much bigger and much older than Lenz (6’0”, 160) and most of them have college offers. The junior point guard has no offers yet but if he continues on his current trajectory that will likely change.

Other nearby selections include: Utah Wasatch Academy’s 6’2” 180 pound shooting guard Richard Isaacs Jr. and Wyoming Sheridan High’s 6’6” 200 pound power forward.
