Posted On: 06/14/18 11:34 AM

Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at several wings who have raised their profile over the past year and have risen up the latest 2019 rankings.

Jake Alexander, 6’4, G/F, 2019, McPherson

Alexander has largely been overshadowed throughout his career at McPherson as the Bull Pups featured a terrific 2018 senior class, but his time is coming. Alexander will be looked to for leadership, rebounding and scoring production this season and has shown the ability to shoot from the 3-point line and do a little bit of everything from the wing.

Jacob Coleman, 6’6, G/F, 2019, Basehor-Linwood

Coleman is a wing player with terrific size at 6’6 who can do a little bit of everything at a high level. He handle it, can shoot from the perimeter, can score in the post and can play a wide variety of spots at the offensive end of the floor, including the point guard position. Defensively he brings good length to the floor and is a strong rebounder.

Jaden Okon, 6’5, G, 2019, Wichita Heights

Okon shot up our charts due to his early spring performance with NLHA as well as his physical tools. He has a big strong, frame, explosive athletic ability and some skills that still need refined as he can handle the ball a little and shoot from the outside. However, while talented, Okon still needs to put it all together on the floor and become more productive to reach his potential.

Spencer Jones, 6’6, G/F, 2019, Bishop Miege

Jones has risen up the rankings over the past year as well, showcasing a versatile, well-rounded game. He has the ability to lock players up at the defensive end, rebounds well and can handle the ball. Much of his offensive game is still emerging, but he has shown the ability to knock down outside shots and picks up a lot of easy baskets in the paint.
