With a few days remaining before our much-anticipated Prep Hoops 250 event on September 9th, we prepare you with a few players to take a look at, at the event. With the event hosting some of the best players Colorado and this being a class that a ton of their players didn’t get major varsity minutes, it could be a bit tricky keeping up with players so I give you the big men to watch out for in the 2020 class that will be at the expo.
Trevor Baskin – Pomona
Trevor was one of the most effective big men in the state last year and his play went unnoticed. He’s a player that went for 7. 5 points while also being the teams second leading rebounder and assist-men even though he was one of the bigger guys on the team. He affected the game in multiple aspects and was a player that other team’s bulletin boards each time out while only being a sophomore. Coming into his junior year he will have high expectations with one of the younger teams in the state. Getting into a rhythym will be benecifcial for Pomona if they want to turn things around and it starts with getting the ball in Trevor’s hands and running the offense through him. He will surely be a stand out player in the expo.
Ethan Henderson – Monarch
Ethan is raw around the edges but has a high ceiling. He is a player that’s shown progression from freshman to sophomore year on the way that he takes over in the game on both ends of the court and keeps the defense guessing on ways to stop him. He has great size and a high motor and is showing progression in the post as well. He’s still growing but is a hard worker that wants to get better and you can’t ask for more from a player. He will be a player that will out work others and that’s why he should standout at the expo.
Kwaheem Brown – Lincoln
Kwaheem won’t be a big man at the next level and is showing that he is one of the most versatile players in his class with his ability to do so many things. With his size however, he has to guard bigger guys and compete in the post with the big men and you can see his maturity in his game and his sheer strength. He will show that he is a capable guard that is able to put it on the floor and distribute as a playmaker but he also has the ability to go inside and bang as well. That versatility will make him one of those players that coaches are attracted to.
Chris Kelly – Mountain Vista
Might not be a big man, but he knows how to use his size to get to his spots on the floor. This is a player that getting stronger and perfecting his craft and with a bit more work will surely come into his own. This year he will have more opportunity to help his team and he will have to show that he has been working a ton in the off season. He can improve in many ways as a guard as well as big men as he is a hustle player that plays with a ton of energy. He will need that energy to transfer as he will be one of the most unknown players in the class, only means he has more to prove. He should be up for it.
