The talk of the class of 2021 is oftentimes about the size of the posts, but the wing play is exceptional as well. The athleticism and versatility of these prospects will result in a large following from college coaches from high major schools on down. With so many quality players at the 2/3 position, it was imperative to create two lists with some analysis. Here is part 2 of the sophomore wings to watch!
2021 wings to watch:
2021 6’5 SF Casey Jones, FOH Seattle (Eastlake HS) – A wiry strong wing player with plus athleticism. He’s also displayed the ability to make shots from behind the arc, with ease. He is an aggressive and physical wing player that can play inside and out. He has very long arms that allow for him to make big plays defensively, getting in passing lanes or getting momentum shifting blocks. He will play for Coach Donald Brady’s FOH 16u team.
2021 6’7 SF Layton Duff, WA Supreme (Woodinville HS) – One of the high stock risers already this spring after a strong showing at Ryan Silver’s High Academic Camp in California. Layton has picked up interest from a handful of smaller schools already. Layton has a high basketball IQ and possesses outstanding length in a frame that is just now starting to fill out. He can defend multiple positions on defense and stretch the floor with his shooting on offense. *Featured image
2021 6’7 SF Hudson Hansen, FOH Seattle (Bellevue HS) – A super long wing that is comfortable playing on the perimeter and handling the ball. He gets a lot of deflections on defense due to his wingspan. He plays the game at his own pace and understands how to play. He will be on multiple colleges’ radar sooner rather than later.
2021 6’6 SF Christian Norman, Team Sabonis (Central Valley HS) – A strong wing player that is comfortable banging inside the paint or running the floor on the break just as well. Christian will join Tyson Degenhart to play with Team Sabonis 16u, creating a tough 1-2 tandem on the wing.
2021 6’6 SF Champ Spencer, FOH Seattle (Bonney Lake HS) – Big time shooter from the three line! He has a solid frame that allows him to body slimmer defenders. He is working to improve in his attacking the basket and mid-range game. He is a solid college prospect, with the level to be determined.
