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 rising junior class.
Below are some of the state’s top point guard prospects in the 2020 class.
Spencer Bain, 6’1, G, Blue Valley West, MoKan Elite
Bain is drawing significant interest from a variety of NCAA Division II programs and is known for his strong frame, good size and well-rounded game. He is a terrific ball handler who plays with good pace and can shake off defenders, and has shown the ability to knock down outside shots, whether it’s off the catch or the bounce. He is a competitor who plays with a big motor.
Xavier Bell, 6’4, G, Andover Central, MoKan Elite
Bell impressed late last season with Andover Central, then took his game to new heights during the offseason running with MoKan Elite. He has since picked up a pair of Division I offers from SEMO and Denver and remains one of the better prospects in the 2020 class. He has terrific size and athleticism and a well-rounded game for a point guard.
Koby Campbell, 6’2, G, 2020, Rose Hill
Campbell is a standout guard prospect who combines size, skill and athleticism. He is coming off a big sophomore season at Rose Hill and is poised for a breakout junior season. Koby struggled with his decision-making once the defense converged but ended with a team high 13 points. He will continue to be the focal point of this team as most of the offense ran through him.
Steele Chapman, 6’0, G, Campus, Pray N Play
Chapman emerged this past offseason as a prospect as he shined competing for Wichita area Pray N Play’s 16U quad. He is an athletic guard who plays biggest than his 6’0 listed height. He can handle the ball, creates separation with a smooth crossover and can knock down shots from the outside.
Ky Thomas, 6’0, G, 2020, Topeka
Thomas burst on the varsity scene as a freshman two years ago and immediately made an impact and has continued to take his game to new heights ever since. Also a standout football prospect, Thomas is among the state’s best players at attacking the basket off the dribble and is tough for opposing teams to contain. He can shoot it from deep, plays tough, physical defense and is a competitor at both ends of the floor.
