Print This Post

Topeka High guards Jarin Downing and James Warren participated in the ScoutsFocus Elite 80 event on Sunday at the Okun Fieldhouse in Shawnee.

Downing is a 5-foot-11 junior, who is currently ranked sixth in the 2016 class in Topeka and Warren (pictured) is a 5-foot-9 sophomore, who is one to keep an eye on in 2017.

Downing and Warren were one of 130 participants who played three games and were coached by Division II, Division III, and junior college coaches.  Evaluations are expected to be done by the end of the week and will be sent out to college coaches. Player rankings are expected to be released in late November.

Downing averaged about eight points a game and Warren averaged 10.7 points at the event.

Downing (GameTime Rec) and Warren (KC Elite) are coming off successful summers with their respective teams and will be looking to fill key roles for the Trojans during the 2014-15 season, which begins in December.
