As part of its 2018-19 preview series, Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at some of the state’s top players in a variety of positions in the senior class.
Below are some of the state’s rising senior guards in the 2019 class.
Trejan Campbell, 6’3, G, 2019, Wichita South
Campbell is a big guard with good size and a long, athletic frame. He can shoot it from the outside a little and can get to the basket off the dribble as well.
Luke Evans, 6’2, G, 2019, Bishop Carroll
Other Carroll players have gotten more press, but it was Evans who stepped up big at the Kansas 5A state championship in Topeka. A 6’2 guard, Evans is a strong outside shooter, handles it well and is a high IQ player who does the little things at a high level. Evans helped Carroll win a Class 5A state championship in Topeka last season and was an all-state selection for his efforts.
D’Monte Gaw, 6’1, G, 2019, Schlagle, Kansas Hoggs
A key varsity player at Schlagle since his freshman season, Gaw is one of the KC area’s most improved players this past summer as he played with confidence and was a force attacking the basket. He is a good rebounder, a competitor at the defensive end of the court and is a creative player off the dribble.
Mason Griffin, 6’2, G, 2019, Silver Lake, SSA Elite
Griffin is probably best known for his outside shooting abilities, but has also shown the ability to create offense, rebound and play a solid all-around floor game. He can handle the ball and get to the basket and has a nice pull-up game off the bounce as well.
Stone Jefferies, 6’1, G, 2019, Bishop Miege, Team Rush
Jefferies has waited his turn behind a host of talented players in recent years at Miege, but we look for him to fill a key role as a shooter and additional ball handler this season. He played a key role off the bench this past summer for KC Team Rush, a program with a loaded backcourt in its own right. Jefferies can work as a spot-up shooter and has the ability to defend as well.
