Jack HutchinsonJackHutchinson5'11" | CGHayden | 2021StateKS, 2021, Washburn Rural:

Hutchinson has been a fixture on the Topeka hoops scene since his freshman year. His physical tools continue to gradually catch up to his considerable skills. Now 6-foot-1and more solid, he can do much more than light opponents up from the perimeter. He handles the ball excellently in the open court, keeping his head up to find teammates on the move. He now has the physique to be a factor on the glass. His best talent has always been his considerable basketball IQ and his unselfishness. Just what a powerhouse like Rural can build around.
