It’s that time when all-state, all-league, all-area and all-city teams are announced. Sports in Kansas publication recently released its all-state team. The selection of the top players by classification was dominated by seniors, with a good mix of juniors throughout.

But a handful of sophomores were recognized, including a few who haven’t received a lot of notoriety to this point.

Here is a look at the sophomores listed on the 3A through 6A all-state teams:

Avery Johnson Avery Johnson 6'2" | CG Maize | 2023 State KS , Maize, 5A 2nd team (pictured):

The 6-foot-3 multi-sport star is a gifted passer with the ability to ignite his team with his distribution. His versatile production helped bring Maize a state title. He scored 17 points in the finale, after averaging 13 points, 4 boards, 3 assists and nearly 2 steals per contest.

Easton Ewing, Independence, 4A 2nd team:

The 6-foot-6 Ewing is a player who hasn’t been on the Prep Hoops radar, possibly because Independence struggled through a losing season. He averaged 18.3 points, 13.5 boards and 2.6 blocks per game. With those kind of stats, Ewing is a multi-sport stud who should be considered one of the top big men in the state moving into next year.
