Fall River NBA prospect Joson Sanon flips where he plans to go to college



A 6’5″ shooting guard from Fall River is one of the most sought-after basketball players in the country and he has decided to switch where he will play college ball next season.

According to his social media, Joson Sanon has decided to take his talents to Arizona State under coach Bobby Hurley after initially committing to Arizona.

Joson Sanon’s high school basketball journey began at Durfee High School as a freshman.

Despite keeping his Fall River roots, Sanon moved on from being a Hilltopper and headed to Vermont Academy in Saxtons River, Vermont where he has become a top college recruit.

We asked Joson’s father Josue last summer what prompted the change of high schools.

“He had to move to Vermont Academy to get some competition in the game. He has more opportunities at a private school, but he appreciates Durfee High School for the effort and the support.”

Sanon had received over 15 scholarship offers from D1 schools including Indiana, Kansas, Georgia, Georgetown, Alabama, UNLV, UCONN, UMASS, Providence College, and Washington.

ESPN released their 2025 mock NBA draft in February and had Sanon in at #28. He has also been ranked as a top 10 college prospect.

On top of being one of the most highly recruited ballers for his on the court performance, Sanon’s coach at Vermont Academy John Zall, says that he is also a great kid.

Sanon’s skills have garnered him invites to elite tournaments and camps across the country. Just last month, Sanon participated in the HoopHall Prep Showcase in Springfield, Massachusetts where he averaged over 30 points in two games against top ranked teams in the country.

Scouts say Sanon has a good basketball IQ, can shoot the three, mid-range, and close range, and can also defend multiple positions.

He would be the second Haitian player in the NBA with Arizona alumnus Bennedict Mathurin who currently plays for the Indiana Pacers.

Fall River residents will be following Sanon’s progress with hopes of NBA success.
