The 2022 class of wings is an interesting one.  There is not a ton of separation among the top prospects at the shooting guard and small forward positions.  Let’s take a look at some of the best here!


Jaden Schutt (Yorkville Chistian)

Current Ranking: #4
Travel Team: Illinois Wolves

Schutt posted quality numbers as a freshman on the varsity level and has followed that up by playing 16U for the Wolves in the spring.  What you have to like about him is his shooting and feel for the game.  Very clean shot mechanically pulling up and off the bounce.  Consistent mechanics every time he lets it fly.  Moves without the ball to get open.  Good athlete.  Smart basketball player.


Kanye Smith (Whitney Young)

Current Ranking: #6
Travel Team: Meanstreets

Smith projects as a wing, but we really liked what he brings to the table as an energy rebounder flying in for boards from out of nowhere in many cases.  He can defend multiple positions with his length and athleticism.  Offensively he is a smooth slasher and finisher in transition.  Doesn’t shoot it a ton with his jumper, but when he does it shows sound form mechanically.
