With the 2018 AAU season in the rear view mirror, we are going to dive into programs across the state looking at their teams in a variety of categories in our Program Awards!  Today we examine Pocket City!

Program MVP

Kyle Stivers, Franklin County

Stivers is one of the better small college prospects in the state in 2019 and he was pretty consistent throughout the AAU season with Pocket City. Kyle is a big time shooter who has become more aggressive getting to the rim and finishing through contact as he has developed. 

Top 2019 Prospect

Carson Guthrie, Mayfield

Carson has good size and shooting ability on the wing and has had some low D1 interest over the last couple of seasons. Carson is 6’5 with good length and athleticism and should be on the radar for high D2 and low D1 schools. His twin brother Connor is the more effective player at the high school level but Carson has more potential thanks to his size. Guthrie is also a good rebounder for his size and position.

Top 2020/2021 Prospect

N/A – Pocket City had only 17u in Kentucky this year.

Sleeper

Cade Cunningham, Madisonville-North Hopkins

Cade is a solid combo guard with exceptional academics. Cunningham is hurt at his high school by having to play predominantly off the ball because of several point guards on the roster for Madisonville. He projects as a college point guard who can knock down perimeter jumpers consistently. Look for him to find his way onto a small college roster next season.

Biggest Stock Riser

Jamarion Sharp, Hopkinsville

The only member of Pocket City with D1 offers, Sharp’s recruitment is all about his potential. He’s 7 foot tall, crazy long and an excellent shot blocker and two handed rebounder. Jamarion has a long way to go with his offensive game but he could end up D1 and redshirt for a year to add muscle and be an impact player in a conference like the OVC.
