Wichita State University hosted an elite camp featuring high school prospects as well as junior college prospects as well. Tons of talent and a great turnout, hosting over 110 kids over the weekend. Here are some of the top prospects that I saw attend the camp.
Davion Bradford (2020)- Hillcrest Academy (AZ)
Davion is really blowing up this spring and summer, picking up numerous Division I offers. The 7’0 prospect has a body and athletically could step onto a college court tomorrow and has a huge upside.
He is still raw, needing more development in his hands and feet which will speed everything up in his game to get him prepared for the high major recruitment he is starting to see.
He has picked up offers from Illinois, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Arizona State, and now Wichita State among others.
Attending a school like Hillcrest, he will certainly develop the hand and foot skills needed to be an impact player immediately upon entering college.
Ethan Kilgore (2020)- East Buchanan High School
Ethan hails from Gower, MO and is a 6’6” wing who showcased that he can do a little bit of everything. He can shoot the ball, has good footwork, and can get into the lane and score in the paint.
While he doesn’t have any offers yet, he is seeing interest from Creighton, Kansas State, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. Certainly appears to be a solid Division I prospect for the class of 2020.
Darrius Hughes (2019)- Rockhurst High School
Darrius has seen his stock rise a lot in the past year as he has improved his game quite a bit. While he didn’t jump out to me during the skills and drills portion of the camp, Darrius showed that he was a gamer and came to shine.
The 6’6” guard/wing has a knack for scoring, bullying his way to the rim on multiple occasions and using his body well to finish. I also saw him shoot the ball as well.
Darrius currently holds an offer from Abilene Christian.
Spencer Jones (2019)- Bishop Miege High School
Spencer plays for a loaded Bishop Miege school and looked really good at the Wichita State Elite Camp until hurting his right calf.
During the skills and drills portion of the afternoon, the 6’6” wing showcased great burst, a mid-range jumper, and the ability to get a step on the defense with his athleticism.
He wasn’t as explosive during the 5 v 5 scrimmages due to a hurt calf muscle but I really liked what he was able to show before that.
Seth Hurd (2019)- Booker T. Washington High School (OK)
The 6’7” prospect showed some great flashes on the block and can finish against contact. He can also make an impact on the boards using his bigger frame to impose his will physically to grab boards.
Seth currently has an offer from Denver University.
James Franklin Jr (2019)- Believe Prep Academy
James Franklin Jr is a 6’4” guard that is incredibly athletic, allowing him to get a step on defenders and finish above the rim in the paint.
While he could still clean up a little bit of his ball handling, right now he compensates for that with his athleticism.
James currently holds an offer from ECU.
Tyrus Baynham Jr (2020)- Franklin Road Academy
Tyrus is another very athletic guard who moves well and has a frame with broad shoulders allowing him to get separation against contact.
He has a smooth game with a good shot and at 6’4” can finish above the rim consistently. Tyrus plays for Bluff City in the Nike EYBL and I’m expecting his recruitment to continue to grow and pick up steam in the next year.
