OUTLOOK: Malik Hall, a 6’7 2019 wing player, and Roman Wilson, a 6’10 2019 forward, are the team’s most experienced players as both players were a part of last year’s 17U MoKan team and played on the EYBL circuit. Many of the remaining MoKan members are back from last year’s 16U squad with a few notable exceptions.

Back from the 16U team are Christian Braun, Carlos Paez, Isiaih Mosley, Dajuan Harris and Deandre Sorrells.

The most notable addition to this year’s 17U squad is 6’11 2020 N’Faly Dante, widely considered a five star recruit who already holds offers from Kansas, LSU, Oklahoma State and St. John’s among others.
