Shawnee Heights, Washburn Rural, and Hayden will be participating in the Kansas State team camp this weekend.
Teams are guaranteed at least five games to be played at Bramlage Coliseum and the Recreation Center in Manhattan.
Here’s a look at the top players to keep an eye on:
Jett Canfield, 5-10, PG, Hayden, 2018 – The KC Run GMC product participated in the CrossRoads Elite Invitational in Indianapolis this week. He is a very poised point guard, who excels at ballhandling, passing, and knocking down perimeter shots. He was the city and league newcomer of the year as a freshman starter.
Zach Harvey, 6-3, G, Hayden, 2019 – Harvey is a very impressive prospect that has earned rave reviews from scouts. He participated in the prestigious John Lucas International Middle School Combine in May. Can play either guard spot and should make an immediate impact as a freshman for the Wildcats.
Brayden White, 5-10, PG, Washburn Rural, 2017 – White (pictured) is already a two-year starter who is an excellent passer. He plays for former Kansas State player Will Spradling’s SSA Hoops team. Very good three-sport athlete who also excels at soccer and baseball.
Trey Brown, 5-10, PG, Shawnee Heights, 2017 – Brown is a good penetrator and can score in a variety of ways. Showed flashes as a sophomore and poised for a breakout junior season.
Zach Lutz, 6-0, SG, Washburn Rural, 2016 – Lutz is a solid two-way player who continues to show improvements while playing for the Kansas Cagers.
Jenner Hickel, 6-4, SF, Washburn Rural, 2017 – Poised for a breakout junior season as he has had a good summer playing for SSA Hoops.
Poncho Freeman, 6-2, F, Shawnee Heights, 2017 – Good low-post scorer and rebounder, who earned valuable playing time on last year’s 20-3 team.
DeShawn Hanika, 6-3, SG, Washburn Rural, 2018 – Hanika has good athleticism and excels in the open court. Continues to develop as a scorer.
