Kansas Rankings: Biggest Risers (2019 Wings)


Posted On: 10/2/17 11:28 PM

A look at a handful of wing players in the 2019 class who saw their stock rise over the past year.

Spencer Jones, 6’5, F/G, Bishop Miege

Jones put together a strong summer competing for the KC Spurs and at last report had drawn interest from a host of college programs. He is long, rangy and has a well-rounded skill set, able to handle the ball, create plays and finish in traffic.

Dale Talley III, 6’3, F/G, Shawnee Mission Northwest

Talley is a long, rangy wing player with a smooth game who is a big riser in the 2019 rankings. He handles the ball well, can create his own shot off the bounce and plays bigger than his listed height due to his length. He is an improving 3-point shooter who takes and makes tough shots.

Noah Butler, 6’5, F, Lawrence Free State

Butler technically fell a few sports in the rankings, but that is more about other players rising than him falling. He is beginning to define himself as a player and has developed into a wing rather than an overpowering athlete. As a youngster, his frame, size and athleticism often overwhelmed the competition, but he has improved his outside game significantly during the offseason and with a big junior season could see his stock rise significantly. He’s certainly among the better 2019 prospects in the state.
