With over 110 prospects attending the Wichita State Elite Camp across all high school classes and a handful of junior college prospects, there was plenty of talent to go around. Here are a few wings/big men who stood out.
Nate Lliteras (2019)- Seward High School (NE)
Nate is a 6’7” wing who has solid footwork that can score at all three levels or be a facilitator once he breaks the defense down.
Nate showed off his athleticism and although he has a slimmer frame, he’s able to leverage his athletic ability to affect shots, rebound the ball, and finish above the rim.
Reece Williams (2020)- Leavenworth High School
I didn’t get to look at Reece a whole lot but at 6’8” and in the class of 2020, he has a big upside. I saw that he was comfortable playing in the paint and being down low but also appears to be developing some skill outside as well.
Dalen Ridgnal (2019)- Rockhurst High School
Dalen has gotten a lot of press this summer as his AAU team, the KC Spurs, has won a lot of independent championships so far. He measures at around 6’6” and excels down low in the paint and plays much bigger than he’s listed at.
He did show this weekend that although it isn’t textbook, his midrange jumper is effective. He is not very comfortable handling the ball on the wing as it isn’t his strong suit at this point in time.
Siler Tschirhart (2019)- Blue Valley High School
Siler is exclusively a low post center who scores with his strength and length at 6’9”. He is a football standout holding multiple Division I offers to play football.
He is a tough player and rebounder and has a muscular frame. From three months ago since I’ve seen him, he looks more muscular and has probably added strength as well.
Jacob Owen (2020)- Blue Valley High School
Jacob is someone else I didn’t get to hone in on much but being listed at 6’10” draws interest initially on paper.
His length allows him to rebound the ball offensively or defensively and his feet didn’t appear to be very heavy but they need more speed to be an impact guy at the next level.
He has a skinny build but still a lot of time to mature and develop. If he develops foot speed and can step out to the wing and get a step on defenders, he will be a high major prospect.
Mykell Robinson (2020)- Hightower High School (TX)
Upon initially seeing Mykell, he looked like a junior college prospect based on his athleticism and build. He is athletically mature beyond his years.
At 6’6” with solid handles and a shooting ability, Mykell is a very solid prospect. He currently holds an offer from Longwood University (Division I).
