As a big guy myself, I always like to shine a light on those big-bodied ballers who can get it done on the court. Don’t let the thickness fool you.

Avery Taggart 6’4″ TEM Select 17U (Eureka ’19): Thick bucket-getter received three Division II offers after a big weekend.

Dylan Branson 6’5″ Brad Beal Elite 16U (Mehlville ’20): Versatile combo guard who can really pass the basketball and make plays.

Ari Jackson 6’4″ St. Louis Majestics 17U (CBC ’19): Solid offensive player with a nice shooting stroke from 3-point range.

Jalen White 6’2″ Arsenal Hoops 17U (Lutheran North ’19): Physical wing who loves to attack the basket and draw the contact.

Keydrian Jones 6’5″ Gateway (IL) 16U (Collinsville ’20): Beefy post player who came up with some big offensive rebound buckets in the championship game.

Donald Brown III 6’6″ Semo Bulls 15U (New Madrid Central ’21): Improved young big with nice post moves and a shooting touch from the perimeter.

Moses Opkala 6’7″ Knights Basketball 17U (Ladue ’19): Major college football prospect who still loves to throw his considerable bulk around in the low post.

Blake Vaughn 6’5″ TEM Select 16U (Summit ’20): Physical post who can drive the ball and knock down a jumper.

Tyson Ford 6’4″ Brad Beal Elite 14U (John Burroughs ’22): Young big who can score in the post and block shots on defense with his long arms.

John Wilson 6’6″ Gateway 15U (St. Charles West ’21): Young big body who can really carve out the space in the post when he sets up shot.

Trey Griffey 6’7″ Arsenal Hoops 17U (Lafayette ’19): Veteran wide-body who can step out and knock down a 3-pointer or score with either hand inside.
