Who are some of the best small college wing prospects remaining on the board in the 2018 class?  We look at the prospects that could be impact D3 and NAIA guys here.

 

SG Peter Lambesis (St. Viator)

Current Ranking: #60
Travel Team: Fundamental U

Lambesis is a multidimensional offensive weapon.  He is super skilled with elite passing from the wing.  Feel for the game and getting others involved.  Can also shoot it both pulling up from mid-range and off the catch from three.  Rebounds and plays tough defense.  Just an average athlete, but is just so skilled.  A D3 team will get a steal in him!

 

SF Jalen Boyd (St. Joseph’s)

Current Ranking: #61
Travel Team: Chicago Lockdown

Boyd is a rangy 6’5” small forward who has stepped up his game over the last year.  He is a plus mid-range jump shooter that drills them pulling up from 15-18 feet with consistency.  Gets elevation and has consistent mechanics.  Also shows well as a defender on the perimeter.  Projects as a priority D3/NAIA prospect.

 

SF Calvin Fisher (Monticello)

Current Ranking: #71
Travel Team: Illinois Irish

The 6’6” Monticello wing has plus size for the position with a strong build.  Fisher shoots the ball well from three especially off the catch.  Also has the ability to mix in a mid-range jumper on occasion.  Plays hard and really competes on every possession.  Will need to improve lateral quickness on the defensive end.

 

SF Josh Boulanger (Brother Rice)

Current Ranking: #73
Travel Team: Chicago Lockdown

He brings great length and projectability to the table.  Plus rebounder that high points them in traffic.  Quick second jump getting on the offensive glass.  Competitive kid that gets after it on the defensive end.  Best offensively in transition using his athleticism and getting to the rim. His athleticism is obviously a big strength, but there are a few areas to improve. His handles on the perimeter could get tighter. The jump shot is an area that can take his game to the next level.  Not consistent shooting it at this stage.

 

SG Jordan Matthews (St. Rita)

Current Ranking: #74
Travel Team: Team Rose

Matthews is a tough combo guard that is the clear senior leader for St. Rita.  He is a kid that finishes well through contact at the rim with his strength.  Can hit a three on occasion.  Overall he is having a strong season using his handles and taking quality angles in the lane.

 

SF Ryan Kutsor (Lake Zurich)

Current Ranking: #81
Travel Team: Kessel Heat

Kutsor is a tough wing that has the ability to shoot it off the catch.  Gritty wing can defend and rebound on the wing.  He is a great glue guy at the small college level.

 

SG Jonte Coleman (Champaign Central)

Current Ranking: #83
Travel Team: Illinois Irish

The senior 6’3” shooting guard showed he could really shoot it from deep in the first half of the season!  He connects a ton on triples both off the catch and pulling up.  Mixes in drive every now and then, but the majority of his offense is shooting from deep.

 

SG Ben Schols (Conant)

Current Ranking: #90
Travel Team:

Schols is a player that is quietly very productive.  Thick bodied wing plays physical slashing to the hoop and getting in the lane.  Strong straight line drives and mixes in a spinning layup or floater.  Can hit a three off the catch.  Quality D3 or NAIA player.

 

SG Caleb Frederking (Okawville)

Current Ranking: #94
Travel Team: Illinois Bears

The 6’2” two guard has a quick release on a plus jump shot.  Dead eye shooter that can get really hot from deep.  Loves to stop and pop from mid-range.  Moves well without the ball and has an effortless feel to his game.  Crisp movements.

 

SG A’Keion Gill (Champaign Central)

Current Ranking: #95
Travel Team:

Gill is a prospect that continues to just go about his business and be a consistent glue guy for his team.  The 6’3” shooting guard is a versatile wing that contributes on both ends of the floor.  Gill is a three and D guy that is a solid spot up shooter offensively also being able to mix in some drives and transition finishes.  Solid wing defender.  Small college prospect that will be a great role player at that level.
