There will inevitably be players who are missed in any ranking process. But with every update of a class list, new players are included as they establish themselves and get ‘seen’ around the state.

Four new players were added to the Kansas 2021 Player Rankings as small forwards.

69 Dayln SchwarzDaylnSchwarz6'6" | SFHays | 2021StateKS, Hays:

The 6-foot-6 Schwarz was one of the highest entrants to the updated 2021 rankings. He earned honorable mention 5A as a junior. He was a leader on one of the most talented teams in western Kansas, and with the graduation of 6-foot-10 Dylan Ruder, Schwarz will play an even larger role next year.

85 Patrick O’NeilPatrickO’Neil6'5" | SFOlathe East | 2021StateKS, Olathe East:

O’Neil is versatile enough to be considered a small forward, power forward, or even shooting guard. The 6-foot-5 senior handles the ball confidently in the open floor, and is willing to pressure and penetrate on the bounce. He shoots well on the move or on the pull-up. He also works hard on defense and for rebounds.

97 Avery BrysonAveryBryson6'2" | SFAbilene | 2021StateKS, Abilene:

The 6-foot-2 Bryson earned honorable mention 4A last season. He can shoot from deep and get hot for prolonged periods.
