Spring Kick Off (2017): Saturday session — shooters


Posted On: 04/9/17 7:54 AM

There has been some strong outside shooting throughout the first two days of the Prep Hoops Spring Kick Off (2017) in Denver, Colo. this weekend.

Here, we take a look at some of the top perimeter shooters from Saturday’s sessions.

AJ Dickerson, 6’2, 2019, Junction City, SSA Elite

Hit what was arguably the biggest shot of the day as he stuck a deep, contested 3-pointer at the buzzer to give SSA 16U a hard-fought win over Colorado Chaos. Dickerson is a terrific athlete that only moments earlier tried to throw down a contested slam.

Michael Gerogiton, 6’3, 2018, Broomfiel, Colorado Titans

One of several Titan players who have excelled this weekend helping his squad open the tournament 3-0. Gerogition played well as the day wore on and was among the Titans’ most consistent 3-point shooters.

Tyson Gilbert, 6’1, 2018, Rock Canyon, Colorado Chaos

Kid that has a lot of upside as a player, Gilbert is among the top 2018 point guard prospects in Colorado and on Saturday showed off his ability to consistently knock down 3-pointers, even ones under duress. Gilbert can stick an open perimeter shot with the best of them, but is able to create his own shot as well.

Kenny Foster, 6’4, 2019, Colorado Hawks

He has a nice all-around game but his calling card is his ability to knock down perimeter jumpers. Hs nice form, balance and lift and combines that with terrific size for a shooting guard.

Luke Johnson, 5’10, 2018, Longmont, Colorado Titans

Seemingly made everything he put up throughout the three games we watched. He’s a left hander with a quick release who is able to get the shot up and over bigger defenders due to his quick trigger. Had a terrific all-around day for the Titans, running the point and taking care of the ball.

Daylen Kountz, 6’4, 2018, Colorado Hawks

Game comes easy to Kountz who very well may be the most talented and highly recruited player in the field. He scored with ease in transition on Saturday, but also showed the ability to knock down 3-pointers with a feathery, left-handed touch.

Mikey Wycoff, 6’3, 2018, Bishop Seabury, SSA Elite Black

Seemingly made everything from 3-pointers to contested pull-up jumpers off the dribble. Wycoff is one of the better unsigned players in Kansas in the 2017 class, but is reclassifying and attending Link Prep in Branson, Mo.
