Looking for size? Look no further, especially if you want a little skill to go with it.
Our list of sleeper fours includes several guys who can finish athletically near the rim, defend multiple positions, rebound actively, and/or lure opposing bigs away from the basket. Let's get into it:
[no. 41] Jamir Simpson | 6-5 PF | Lima Senior / Apex Gold
Intriguing combo forward with a high ceiling because of his burst and ball skills. Simpson is a nightmare when he faces up or catches a pass while diving. Great lift on put-back attempts. Shows ball-handling ability in the open floor off the defensive glass. Talented.
[no. 55] Kaveon Ross | 6-5 PF | Walnut Ridge / Hidden Gems Black
Fiery competitor with bounce and a strong, thick body. 270 Hoops' Zach Fleer once referred to Ross as a "play finisher" and that about sums it up — Ross is a catch-and-finish extraordinaire in the dunker spot. Capable outside shooter becoming more consistent in his ability to step outside for a jumper.
Central State and Walsh offered, joining Urbana as options.
