Continuing the Wichita area previews, now it’s time to take a look at the 2020 class. There are 2020 prospects that are well known and some that are sleepers. Here’s a list of the area’s sleepers for that class.

Thomas King- Campus HS

Thomas played basketball last year with the Derby Invasion as he was homeschooled but will be at Campus High School this year.

The 6’4’’ wing played the AAU season with Next Level Hoops Academy and showcased his versatility as he showed he could handle the ball, be an effective rebounder, and is benefiting off of his athleticism and length.

Jerome Washington- Andover Central HS

Jerome also played with NLHA this summer and had some breakout performances.

The 6’5’’ wing is a very good shooter and can put points up in a hurry. His release point makes it difficult to disrupt and the arc he gets allows for his shot to be a high percentage one.

He is also comfortable off the bounce and getting to the rim and will be a much bigger part of the rotation at Andover Central for his junior year.

Jerome is the son of Mark Washington who played professionally overseas for 13 years and is now training prospects in the Wichita area that of course includes his son.

Zach Davidson- Augusta HS

Zach has a lot of upside at about 6’7’’ and a mobile big man. He is good around the rim and has solid footwork that allows him to get favorable position on the block.

Zach missed his entire freshman year of basketball with an illness but will be a big part of the upcoming rotation at Augusta with a void left down low following the graduation of Clausing.

Watch for Zach’s stock to soar this year and really grab the attention of next level coaches as he should be seeing a lot more recruitment.

Jaxon Pillich- Wichita Heights HS

Heights is always loaded with talent and Jaxon is no exception to that representing the class of 2020. He moved to the area from Texas and is looking to make a name for himself this year.

The 6’3’’ combo guard can put points on the board in a hurry and is very athletic, a trait that benefits him on both sides of the ball.

With tight handles and the ability to finish above the rim, Jaxon is a valuable slasher for Heights who should see some additional playing time this year.

Alex Krogmeier- Newton HS

Alex is an underrated shooter who played a big role on the Kansas Bluejays team this summer as the primary source of offense.

He has good height for a guard at 6’3’’ and this summer has drawn more confidence in creating opportunities off the bounce although that will be somewhat limited until after Ty Berry graduates in 2019.
