Returning Topekans are sprinkled throughout the Prep Hoops rankings. Here are guys who have shown on the club circuit, and on the high school scene, they deserve to be rated among the state’s best:

3 (2021) Joe Berry Joe Berry 6'4" | CG Washburn Rural | 2021 State KS , junior Washburn Rural:

Berry has cemented this spot by helping Rural to the state finals as a sophomore, then establishing himself as co-Player of the Year in the Centennial League as a junior. He was named to the third team of 6A by the Topeka Capital-Journal. Berry finished with a 17.4 scoring average, but he scored 20 or more in six of his first seven games. He’s a respected leader and a versatile rock for the Junior-Blues.

37 (2021) CJ Powell, junior, Highland Park:

Powell led a renaissance of the Highland Park program. The Scots improved to 15-8 after going 3-18 in Powell’s sophomore year. The 6-7 Powll is as versatile as he is dominant in the paint. Powell is really good on the perimeter and scores his share from beyond the arc. He averaged 14.2 points as a sophomore, then raised his output to 16.8.

51 (2021) Jack Hutchinson Jack Hutchinson 5'11" | CG Hayden | 2021 State KS , junior, Washburn Rural:
