We’re here to answer the question of, “Who are the 10 best prospects in the Eastern Kentucky area?”

What are the stipulations? None, really. Regardless of class and regardless of positions, what our top 10? For purposes of this article, Eastern Kentucky is defined as regions 14 through 16 (with a little bit of the 13th added in).

#1 Trey JamesTreyJames6'10" | CSheldon Clark | 2021StateKY, Martin County (2021) - The biggest player in the state, Trey is a throwback post player who averaged a double-double last season. The best rim protector in the mountains, Trey recently decommitted from Wake Forest after Danny Manning’s firing. Martin County won the region this year but didn’t get their chance to impress at Rupp due to the season being cancelled.

#2 Jordan AkalJordanAkal5'10" | PGHarlan | 2022StateKY, Harlan - A high volume scorer, Akal was one of the top scorers in the state the last two seasons and had multiple 35+ point outings last summer against powerhouses like Scott County. Jordan is a good athlete with a solid handle and the ability to score on about anyone. He’s sort of like a mountain version of Zion HarmonZionHarmon5'10" | PGMarshall County | 2021State#51NationKY. A high scoring PG with the knack for making things happen.
