The 6-4 wing is just a walking bucket getter. He’s capable of filling it up from anywhere, and when he gets it going, he’s really tough to slow down. He’s a big bodied wing who can post up smaller defenders, is quick enough to take bigger defenders off the dribble, and has a solid perimeter stroke.
Meiborg is a 5-11 volume scorer who has the ability to drop 30 on someone on a given night. He’s a smooth shooter off the dribble, and has the ability to score from all three levels. If he can become a more efficient scorer at the next level, he could have a really nice college career. He’ll enjoy not being the focal point of every opposing game plan.

A 6-7 do-it-all forward, Hurd led his team in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and block this season. He’s capable of scoring from anywhere, and is a good, willing passer with great size.
One of the state’s all-time best scorers, Coppock finished his high school career with 2,207 points, which ranks 18th. A small but talented guard, he handles the ball really well and is a threat to pull up from anywhere, while also looking to attack the rim. He has quick hands and can make an impact on the defensive end of the floor, but his scoring punch is what really makes him a threat.
Beckmann is a streaky shooter, but when he gets it going, he can light up the scoreboard in a hurry. A 5-11 guard, he’s shifty and has quick feet that he uses to create the tiniest bit of separation, then it’s bombs away. He has limitless range and a lightning quick release on his jumper. He averaged 12.2 points, making 57 3-pointers at a 40.7% clip as a senior.
Henricksen is a bit like Beckmann, streaky but can really get hot and put up a big number in a hurry. He’s a good shooter off the catch and has the ability to create his own shot. He can have iffy shot selection at times, but that improved as the year progressed, and he has the ability to score from all three levels. The 5-11 scoring guard will need to improve his efficiency (38.5% from the floor as a senior) as he moves to the next level, but his ability to create his own shot is matched by few in the 2020 class in the state.
The 5-9 lead guard is one of the best pure point guards in the class. He rarely turns it over (33 turnovers against 96 assists) and is a great ball handler and decision maker. He’s small, but is an efficient scorer who gets to the rim and is a creative finisher. He’s a well-built lead guard who does a lot of little things that teams need.

Dekkers concluded a great four-year varsity career by leading the Falcons to State. A highly efficient, 6-1 lead guard with great strength, he’s also a highly gifted passer, which should come as no surprise given that he was one of the top quarterback prospects in the country. He’s headed to Iowa State to lead the Cyclones offense for the next four years.

A 5-10 lead guard with great quickness and hands on the defensive end of the floor, Armstrong is at his best offensively when he’s getting to the bucket. He has a quick first step and is a strong finisher at the rim. He’ll need to improve his jumper at the next level, but he has a burst and the lateral movement necessary to be a solid collegiate player.
Perhaps the player in this portion of the rankings with the most upside, Helming is a 6-6 wing with range and great length. He’s a respectable shooter from the arc, has a nice pull-up and mid-range game and has the length to defend multiple positions. He needs to continue to work on his ball handling to help him create his own shot better, but he has the size, length and skills to be a very productive player at the next level.
