Players Remaining on the board
The 2018 class in Kansas still includes several talented players who have not yet made a college commitment.
Parker Bruan, 6’8, F, 2018, Blue Valley Northwest
Easily the most talented prospect remaining on the board in Kansas’ 2018 class, Braun is a long, athletic interior player capable of finishing plays around the basket with ferocious dunks, is a terrific shot blocker, and is a developing outside shooter as he shows confidence from behind the arc. Braun currently holds several offers, and has added many of those since the Class 6A state championships in Wichita.
DeShaun English, 6’6, F, 2018, Pittsburg
English has opted to reclassify and attend Link Prep in Branson. He is a long, rangy interior player with a developing skill set. He can face up a little and attack the basket, but is at his best finishing around the rim and is a terrific shot blocker.
Tyon Grant-Foster, 6’6, F, 2018, Schlagle
Grant-Foster is an athletic wing player who can handle the ball, get to the basket or knock down perimeter shots. He is also able to block shots and brings a diverse skill set to the floor.
DiCarlo Jackson, 6’1, 180, G, Sumner
Jackson is a scoring guard who can put it in the basket from all over the court. He plays bigger than his listed 6’1 height would suggest.
Remy Lemovou, 6’8, F, 2018, Wichita South
One of the state’s better remaining big men on the board, Lemovou runs the floor exceptionally well, can finish around the basket and is a standout shot blocker.
Ezekiel Lopez, 6’1, G, Bishop Miege
An athletic guard, Lopes is a standout perimeter shooter who can get hot from behind the arc and carry a team offensively. He is terrific in transition where he is a threat to throw down emphatic dunks, and can get to the basket in the halfcourt.
Zach McDermott, 6’3, G, 2018, Free State
McDermott kind of flew under the radar a little this season as the Firebirds featured a host of talented players that often overshadowed each other. He has terrific size at 6’3, 190, and can play either guard spot.
Sam Ward, Blue Valley Northwest
Ward continues to be among the state’s premier players who has not made a college decision. He is a slick point guard capable of handling the ball or dialing it up from long distance.
