Teams are attending the tournament from Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Michigan. We begin previewing the 17U division with some of the top talent at the tournament.

Kenny Chambers 2018 Missouri Flight Combo Guard 

Chambers is a combo guard who excels in transition. He has the ability to get to the rim and finish with either hand. Chambers is a lock down defender on the perimeter. The pull up jumper of Chambers is quick.

Quinn Nelson 2018 Missouri Flight Wing 

Nelson is a pure shooter from the Wing. He is the best shooter on Missouri Flight and one of the top shooters in Missouri. He is a playmaker with the ball in his hands. Nelson is an underrated defender. The athleticism of Nelson surprises some when he rises and finishes at the rim.

Carson Meier 2018 6’5 3D Athletes OKC Wing

Meier is an intriguing Wing who brings a lot of offense to the table. He scores the ball in all three phases of his game using his size, height and length to his advantage. The next step in Meier’s game is on the defensive end. He is a good shooter and has developed into a clutch player.

Dalton Vinson 2018 6’7 3D Athletes OKC Wing 

Vinson is an up and coming prospect in Oklahoma who has risen to the Low Major Division I level projection. The size of Vinson will find college programs intrigued, but as they continue to watch him they will see he rebounds the ball well and is very efficient on offense. Vinson knows his role and does it very well.

Luke Major 2018 6’6 3D Athletes OKC Wing

Major is an excellent Wing with great upside to his game. He does a great job of passing from the high post. The ball runs through Major during school ball with him allowed to create. Major is a player who continues to impress with his development.

Braden Boyer 2018 6’8 BTR Forward 

Boyer is a player who has flown under the radar, but broke out this past high school season for Broken Arrow. The Oklahoma 6’8 Post is set for a major summer. Boyer will get some great exposure with BTR this summer on the grassroots circuit. Division II programs will come to love what Boyer brings to the table.

Jace Killman 2017 6’2 OKC Wolfpack Shooting Guard 

Killman is an unsigned senior who is getting looks at the NAIA D2 level. He shoots the ball well from behind the arc. He has a quick release that allows him to be one of the better catch and shoot guys in the Oklahoma 2017 class. Killman will look to shine this weekend at the Route 66 Kick Off in Oklahoma City.
