Longview and Kelso, known as the Twin Cities of southwest Washington, always has basketball talent. Although the players may not be well known, they’ve been quietly finding themselves on college rosters for quite a while now. The 2023 class is one of the most loaded groups the city has seen in a long time, and they’re hungry to put their city on the radar. Here are some names you should be on the lookout for.

Kobe Parlin (2023 6’1 - CG, Mark Morris HS)

Parlin is a lefty that’s wired to score. He can knock down the open three and is a strong driver that plays through contact very well. Where he really shines is in the mid-range though. His dribble pull-up is a go-to of his, and for good reason.

Ethan Mitchell (2023 6’3 - PG, Kelso HS)

Mitchell has a smooth game. He looks like he’s moving in slow motion out there but always seems to find a way to the rim where he finishes with either hand. His best ability is his passing. His teammates know to always have their hands ready when he’s on the floor because a no-look pass is probably coming.
