JAYHAWK: Kansas’ All-Tournament
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — The 2018 Jayhawk Summer Finale completed play on Sunday with a host of standout performances.
Here, Prep Hoops takes a look at several of the premier players and performances from Kansas’ talent.
5 — Zach Harvery, 6’5, G, 2019, Hayden, KC Run GMC 17U (pictured)
Harvey continues to impress this offseason as he defends his No. 1 overall spot in the latest Prep Hoops Kansas rankings. He has added some size and muscle since the high school season and at 6’5 has the kind of size, skill and athleticism major programs are looking for. He can consistently knock down shots from distance, is a capable creator off the dribble and is a creative finisher in traffic and around the basket.
Berry drew a crowd of college coaches wherever he went this weekend and recently added an offer from Wichita State in late July He has a well-rounded offensive game, capable of creating of his own shot off the bounce and combining that skill with the ability to consistently knock down perimeter shots, whether it’s off the catch-and-shoot or off the dribble.
11 — Joshua Earley, 6’7, PF, 2019, Bishop Miege, KC Run GMC 17U
Earley is a rare combination of strength, power and explosiveness. His recruiting has heated up in recent months as he has drawn offers from UMKC, Cleveland State and Jacksonville in July, adding to offers from Kent State, Northern Kentucky, Denver, Indiana State, Tulsa, Bradley, East Carolina and Southern Illinois. He is a tough, physical defender capable of defending the post, blocking shots and moving his feet a little on the perimeter. Offensively he gets a lot of garbage buckets around the basket, but showed a developing perimeter shot this weekend in Overland Park.
Grill has blown up over the past several months and once again had a slew of college coaches following him for every game. He is a shot maker with range, a competitive spirit and the ability to create his own shot off the dribble or run off screens. He has added several offers throughout the month of July, including most recently Texas Tech, Southern Illinois, Bradley and Nebraska.
15 — Gavyn Elkamil, 6’4, G, 2020, Pittsburg, Missouri Team Carroll
Elkamil helped Missouri Team Carroll 16U squad to a runaway win on Friday and continues to showcase a well-rounded offensive game. He has a big, strong frame and uses it well to create space off the bounce, get to the basket and absorb contact and finish in the lane. He can knock down shots from distance, and is capable of shooting off the catch or the dribble.
