When it counted the most, Klein Forest's Calvin Solomon came up huge.

The 6-foot-7 guard, forward, post helped lead the Eagles to the state title game before falling to Duncanville in the finals.

"He's basically a big point guard, who can guard anyone on the court on defense," coach Cary Black said. "He can take a post to the hole off the dribble or post up a smaller guard. He just makes great decisions."

Solomon faced a pair of McDonald's All-Americans in Rockwall's Samuell Williamson (Louisville) and South Garland's Tyrese Maxey (Kentucky) in the regional tourney. He was a huge part of the Eagles' win over Cibolo Steele in the semis.

"I've felt way more confident in my game this year after coming off of an injury last year," he said. "Playing in the summer against so many top-ranked players and in front of high-major colleges prepared me for the big moments this season."

If Stingley's history of injuries becomes a problem for Houston, Caserio will deserve all the blame for taking such a big risk at No. 3 overall.

ESPN Houston's Jake Asman, Cody Stoots, and Brad Kellner discuss on The Wheelhouse.
