There was a ton of talent on the floor at the Prep Hoops event in Wichita last weekend. Guys demonstrated a variety of skills. Defense is as much about heart and effort as it is about talent, and there were some guys who really got after it.

Here is a look at some of the top defenders at the Midwest Grind Session (in alphabetical order):

Jameer Clemons Jameer Clemons 5'10" | CG Derby | 2022 State KS , 5-foot-10 guard, Midwest Magic Elite – Hernandez, Derby HS (pictured):

Clemons never gave up on a play. Not one. He blocked numerous shots at the rim, showing remarkable hops and body control. Whether he was beaten by his own man, or someone else was getting to the goal, Clemons intercepted a lot of passes, and picked some pockets, making defense a huge part of his impressive game last weekend.

Joby Love, 2022, 6-foot-1 guard, Kansas Players, Maize South:

Love takes a lot of pride in his defense, and he lets the other team know about it. He plays with an in-your-face aggression, and he’s athletic enough to back it up. He’s got lightning quick feet and hands, and he moves to cut off drivers. He loves to defend the inbound pass
