We now examine the top post prospects in the 2022 class!  These are the highest ranked prospects at the position in the latest PHI Rankings!

 

AJ CaseyAJCasey6'8" | PFWhitney Young | 2022State#12NationIL (Whitney Young)

Ranking: #1

Casey is the top junior prospect in the state and in contention for the best prospect regardless of class.  Smooth and fluid athlete that can play inside and out.  Knocks down face up shots, puts it on the deck, and scores with athleticism in the paint.  Runs the floor with ease and is a mobile defender on the defensive end.  He has all the tools you look for in a high-major post prospect.

 

Kyle ThomasKyleThomas6'9" | CSt. Joseph's | 2022State#89NationIL (St. Joseph)

Ranking: #3

Thomas has great size and strength on the interior.  He seems to be growing into his body and frame.  Runs the floor hard for lobs.  Powerful in the paint as a finisher.  The improved skill and mobility were what made the biggest impression on us at Rock N Ball.  Looked extremely comfortable taking shots from all over.  Rebounded at a high level throughout the night.  Physical presence around the hoop on both ends of the floor that has made strides in his skill game.
