Fern does a great job of navigating through traffic in the lane while keeping his head up and scanning the floor. His ball-handling skills paired with solid court vision make him a natural facilitator. He is a traditional point guard, always looking to dish rather than score.

Young provided value for Lincoln Supreme 15U National 1 this summer as an off-ball mover. By crashing the boards, reading the floor and cutting into space, and screening for teammates, Young was able to make the job of his teammates much easier.

When evaluating players at this age, I look for players who can diagnose and resolve problems on the court quickly and accurately. It does not always produce big scoring or assist numbers at this level, but it is a decent indicator for future growth. I see a lot promise in Wilke's game with his off-ball decision making on defense, his cutting on offense, and his passing ability. He stays locked in whether he has the ball in his hands or is getting shot
