Currently, #1 ranked prospect in SD (2022)

This basketball machine from Mitchell has been gaining interest from D1 schools. He had a phenomenal high school season and now he is tearing it up on the AAU scene with SD Attack. If you are unfamiliar with Caden Hinker Caden Hinker 6'7" | PF Mitchell | 2022 State SD , check out his highlight film at the bottom. He is a versatile scorer that can pore it in from all 3-levels. Caden shoots it with a high release and he is 6’7", so he can shoot over most defenders. At times it seems like he is unguardable, you just have to hope he misses. He is also silky smooth with his back to the basket. Hinker has crafty footwork, but he can also finish with power and wham it home. Caden sees the floor well and he drops dimes. Hinker is an excellent rebounder, he nearly averaged double-digits.  On defense, he is a shot swatter. Caden’s long arms make him a problematic and frustrating defender. Outside of his skill/size, Caden plays hard, fast, and determined. He is a joy to watch, I recommend hoops fans check him out. I know plenty of college coaches are!
