Julian graduated in Los Vegas, NV,  from Bishop Gorman HS in 2016.  He was scheduled to join Washington Academy in North Carolina after his graduation but instead had shoulder surgery that required intensive rehabilitation.

As a senior in high school, Julian was ranked a 2-Star player and was described as a wiry point guard with very long arms, big feet and a great feel for the game.  He has ideal speed and quickness and his transition game is impressive.  He can pop in the floater or nail the 3-point shot.  He possesses good vision on the break.

Last year, Julian scored 9.9 PPG and had 2.9 APG I his come back year.  He will have to compete against some tough point guards for position that have joined the AVC  team and will need to lead by example the many freshman on this years team.
