Carmel 2021 Kimahri Wilson is a 5’11” thin point guard.  He is a quick and dynamic point guard that has the ability to break down defenders off the bounce and get to the rim.  At times he can over dribble a bit too much and forced some turnovers with some flashy passes.  Seems to settle in as the game goes on playing better in the second half making quality decisions with the ball and looking to be more aggressive as a scorer getting to the rack.  Can hit a mid-range jumper.  Didn’t shoot it much from three in our first couple evals of him.  Definitely and exciting player to track in the freshman class.

Wilson chatted with us about his first year of high school basketball.

“My freshman season is going good.  I have been fitting in with everyone and they have been letting me in with everybody even though I am a freshman.”

The 2021 lead guard talked about his game.

“I score when my team needs it the most.  I talk out there.  My defensive intensity helps this team also.  I play defense and with my playmaking I can dish or get to the basket.  I have a pull up jumper.  I feel like my defense gets it all started.”

He has already landed a scholarship offer from Southern Illinois.

“SIU I got an offer from them.  They have watched me play a lot.  They are really nice.  I have been watching them this season.  They look pretty good.  They kind of play like me.  They get out on the break.”

Wilson ran with Kessel Heat on the circuit.
