Rankings Review: 2022 Newcomers

We recently updated the class of 2022 player rankings. Gathering a list of players and choosing which rank best fits the individual was a tall task, but we do our best to keep them updated every three months. Our recent update includes an increase in the number of players. Let us take a closer look at 10 newcomers to the rankings.

Full 2022 Rankings List:

Alphabetically, here are 10 players that are new to the rankings:

Anthony Wanner Anthony Wanner 6'10" | C Fargo Shanley | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-10 F| Shanley – He has not played much on varsity this season. Anthony’s size and long wingspan make him an interesting prospect. His length makes him a rim protector and a capable rebounder. Keep an eye on this big man. His ceiling is very high.

Corban Potts Corban Potts 6'3" | PG LaMoure/Litchville-Marion | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-3 G| LaMoure/Litchville/Marion – 11.8 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.8 apg, and 2.2 spg. Corban is one of the top guards in Region 3. He is a versatile defender. Corban makes others around him better and he is the primary ballhandler for the Loboes. I admire how extremely hard he plays the entire game.

Eric Wentz Eric Wentz 6'2" | SG Minot | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-2 G| Minot – 14.5 ppg, 4 rpg, and 80% on FT’s. He is a cool customer at the charity stripe. Eric has an excellent jab step and an artful left-handed finger-roll finish. He is a solid 3-point shooter. Eric also possesses a smooth mid-range jumper.

Gannon Limke Gannon Limke 6'6" | PF Hillsboro/Central Valley | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-6 F| Hillsboro/Central Valley – 17 ppg, 12 rpg, 2.5 apg, and 2 bpg. Gannon scored 30 points in a game this season and grabbed 18 rebounds in another. He has recorded a double/double 15 out of 19 games. Gannon is a physically gifted basketball player with a quality jump shot and athletic finishing ability.

Garrett Bader Garrett Bader 6'2" | SG Bismarck St. Mary's | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-1 G| Bismarck St. Mary’s – 15.7 ppg and 41% from 3-point land. Garrett plays with great flow and he has a great feel for the game. He has a nice stroke for beyond the arc. I love his first step. He gets up and down the court quickly and finishes around the rim effortlessly

Jaiden Peraza Jaiden Peraza 6'5" | SF Kindred | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-4 F| Kindred – 8.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg, and 2 apg. Jaiden is a stud athlete with ridiculous hops. He is no stranger to dunking on people. Jaiden is a strong physical rebounder. He is solid screener and a better roller. I like his length and toughness.

Kelby Azure Kelby Azure 6'4" | PF Hatton/Northwood | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-4 F| Hatton/Northwood – 13.7 ppg, 8.7 rpg and 8 charges taken. Kelby scored 27 points in a game this season and ripped 14 rebounds in another. He is a powerful post player that owns the lane. He attacks the rim with strength but finishes with a shooters touch. Kelby is not afraid of contact.

Luke Van Berkom Luke Van Berkom 6'8" | PF Jamestown | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-8 F| Jamestown – 5.1 ppg, 3.1 rpg, and 85% for the FT-line. He did not get much playing team early in the season. He has been coming on as of late. Luke is a big, strong, force inside. I like his hands. Luke is a shot blocker and a problematic defender in the paint.

Trapper Skalsky Trapper Skalsky 6'0" | SG Beulah | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-0 G| Beulah – 13 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, and 2.5 spg. Trapper scored 27 points on Saturday night and has been playing well lately. He is a quick athlete with a legitimate jump-shot. He is an excellent rebounder for a 6-foot guard. I like how he finishes with both hands around the basket and he does not shy away from contact in the lane.  

Tyler Kraft Tyler Kraft 6'3" | SG Fargo Shanley | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-3 G| Shanley – 9 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.7 apg and a 30% 3-point shooter. I like the looks of his shot from outside with his high release. His mid-range jumper is even better. Tyler has proper mechanics and all the fundamentals. He is a sneaky good athlete.
