Here is a look at several 2019 forwards who raised their profile at the Prep Hoops Kansas Top 250 Expo held on Sunday at Blue Valley West.
1 — Luke Adams, 6’0, PG, 2021, Blue Valley North (Kan.)
Adams can do a little bit of everything for a young guard. He has a good feel for playing the point and helping lead a team, can make deep 3-pointers on a consistent basis and has the ability to get in the lane and make floaters.
2 — Max Alexander, 5’11, PG, 2021, McPherson (Kan.)
Alexander played on a team that had a lot of talented pieces, but he found his spots throughout the camp to make an impact. He is a talented ball handler and point guard prospect who can get to the basket, shoot the 3 and lead a team. He also brings grit and toughness to the court and is willing to defend, rebound and play a hard nosed brand of basketball if necessary.
10-Joe Berry, 6’2, G, 2021, Washburn Rural (Kan.)
A smooth guard who is good at making plays for others. Berry can shoot and get to the basket, but he spent a great portion of the day making extra passes and getting people looks who didn’t get a lot of touches. He’s a confident player who sacrifices his own opportunities to get others in the zone. But Berry can make noise for himself. He plays at a good speed and can hit open shots.
30 — Matthew DeLeon, 5’10, G, 2021, St. James Acsdemy (Kan.)
DeLeon is a sharp shooting guard who loves the corners and can get hot and fill it up from distance. He is slender of build and will need to get a little stronger to take his game to the next level, but has a good feel for the game.
35 — Kaleb Gaddis, 5’10, G, 2021, Andover (Kan.)
One of the better young guards at Sunday’s event, Gaddis is coming off a strong summer with NLHA’s 15U squad and showcased a well-rounded skill set as well as the ability to handle the ball under pressure and create plays at the 250 Expo. Gaddis is. crafty with the ball, likes to attack the basket and is a hard worker at both ends of the floor.
