The 2022 class is filled with talent at every position, and the center position is no exception. With plenty of big names drawing scholarship level attention, these are seven talented post prospects who may be slipping under the radar in Minnesota.

Stephen Kesti (6’8 2022 PF/C, Spring Lake Park)- After averaging 1.3 ppg as a junior, I think that Stephen is in line for a much bigger role this upcoming winter. At around 6’7-6’8 he has solid size on the block, and moves his feet well to get into good position defensively. Though he’s not jumping out of the gym, he can get off the floor pretty quickly allowing him to block/contest shots and also finish above the rim off two feet. Stephen showed some inside-out potential this summer as he was able to score with his back to the basket when isolated in the post, and also knock down open threes in pick-and-pop situations. A hard worker who rebounds well, defends, and can produce offensively.

Nathan Johnson Nathan Johnson 6'8" | C St. Thomas Academy | 2022 State MN (6’8 2022 C, St. Thomas Academy)- I had the chance to watch Nathan play a couple of times this spring and he’s another player who looks ready to take a step forward
