As we did for the 2022 class, we put together an all-star team using the rankings for the 2023 class. It is the collection of all the players ranked by the six positions Prep Hoops utilizes in its rankings.

We realize that many of our ranked players could play several different positions. And we realize that some players, guys like Eli Sawyers Eli Sawyers 6'6" | SF Southeast Of Saline | 2023 State KS and BJ Redic BJ Redic 6'2" | SF Andover | 2023 State KS , defy positions.

Thus the 2023 Rankings First Team was not a list of the top six players. It’s the highest rated player at each position. That team consisted of: PG Marcus Zeigler Marcus Zeigler 6'1" | PG Wichita Heights | 2023 State KS , CG Avery Johnson Avery Johnson 6'2" | CG Maize | 2023 State KS , SG Will Rost Will Rost 6'3" | SG Aquinas | 2023 State KS , SF Caleb Wiese Caleb Wiese 6'4" | SF Garden City | 2023 State KS , PF Will Anciaux Will Anciaux 6'6" | PF Kapaun Mt Carmel | 2023 State #194 Nation KS , and C Jack Wilson Jack Wilson 6'5" | C Manhattan | 2023 State KS .

The 2023 Rankings Second Team was the following: PG Jordan McGowan Jordan McGowan 5'10" | PG Shawnee Mission West | 2023 State KS , CG Kobe Smith Kobe Smith 6'1" | CG Wichita Southeast | 2023 State KS , SG Eli Shetlar Eli Shetlar 6'4" | SG Andover | 2023 State KS , SF Eli Sawyers Eli Sawyers 6'6" | SF Southeast Of Saline | 2023 State KS , PF Tyler Little Tyler Little 6'5" | PF Galena | 2023 State KS , and C Will Mlynek Will Mlynek 6'9" | C Shawnee Mission South | 2023 State KS .

Now here’s the 2023 Rankings Third Team, the #3 player at each of our six positional classifications (listed by position, name, state ranking, size and high school):

Point Guard: Eli Sawyers Eli Sawyers 6'6" | SF Southeast Of Saline | 2023 State KS and BJ Redic BJ Redic 6'2" | SF Andover | 2023 State KS , defy positions. Thus the 2023 Rankings First Team was not a list of the top six players. It’s the highest rated player at each position. That team consisted of: PG Marcus Zeigler Marcus Zeigler 6'1" | PG Wichita Heights | 2023 State KS , CG Avery Johnson Avery Johnson 6'2" | CG Maize | 2023 State KS , SG Will Rost Will Rost 6'3" | SG Aquinas | 2023 State KS , SF Caleb Wiese Caleb Wiese 6'4" | SF Garden City | 2023 State KS , PF Will Anciaux Will Anciaux 6'6" | PF Kapaun Mt Carmel | 2023 State #194 Nation KS , and C Jack Wilson Jack Wilson 6'5" | C Manhattan | 2023 State KS . The 2023 Rankings Second Team was the following: PG Jordan McGowan Jordan McGowan 5'10" | PG Shawnee Mission West | 2023 State KS , CG Kobe Smith Kobe Smith 6'1" | CG Wichita Southeast | 2023 State KS , SG Eli Shetlar Eli Shetlar 6'4" | SG Andover | 2023 State KS , SF Eli Sawyers Eli Sawyers 6'6" | SF Southeast Of Saline | 2023 State KS , PF Tyler Little Tyler Little 6'5" | PF Galena | 2023 State KS , and C Will Mlynek Will Mlynek 6'9" | C Shawnee Mission South | 2023 State KS . Now here’s the 2023 Rankings Third Team, the #3 player at each of our six positional classifications (listed by position, name, state ranking, size and high school): Point Guard: Garrett Robertson Garrett Robertson 5'10" | PG Hutchinson | 2023 State KS , #12, 5-foot-10, Hutchinson HS: One of the top pure point men in the state, Robertson can fill it up from deep. But he’s also a talented distributor who has played with a lot of top talent as part of the Oz Elite program. He has good vision, athleticism to get where he needs to, and the IQ to know where the ball needs to be. Combo Guard: Jack Bachelor Jack Bachelor 6'0" | CG Washburn Rural | 2023 State KS , #11, 6-foot, Washburn Rural HS: Another high IQ player, Bachelor has been a nice supporting piece to some talented upper classmen at Washburn Rural. To this point, he’s been a do-what-is-needed type of player, occasionally scoring in double figures, like the 14 he produced in a big game against Manhattan. He is a fine shooter, distributor and ball handler whose length and athleticism continue to develop. Shooting Guard: Britton Dutton Britton Dutton 6'1" | SG Ellinwood | 2023 State KS , #18, 6-foot-1, Ellinwood HS (pictured): Dutton is always in attack mode. He’s on the move full court, trying to find an opening on the drive. He gets the ball to teammates to the tune of 4.0 assists per game. But he’s best known for his scoring ability – 17.9 points as a freshman, 23.7 as a sophomore. Small Forward: BJ Redic BJ Redic 6'2" | SF Andover | 2023 State KS , #10, 6-foot-2, Andover HS: Like his teammate high school teammate Shetlar, Redic made a lot of fans this summer with Oz Elite, earning a 12-slot jump in the rankings this month. The rugged and dynamic athlete is a handful on the offensive end…and even better on the defensive end. He averaged 8.4 points and 4.6 rebounds on a loaded Andover team that didn’t need him to score. Watch for Redic to explode on the high school scene this year. Power Forward: Jack Voth Jack Voth 6'5" | PF Buhler | 2023 State KS , #20, 6-foot-5, Buhler HS: Voth is another player who can play a variety of spots and provide some of everything. Voth is a long, physical guy who can really shoot. He hits the boards hard and defends inside and out, making him a guy coaches can use in many different roles. Center: Joe Otting Joe Otting 6'3" | C Hayden | 2023 State KS , #27, 6-foot-3, Hayden HS: Otting is a powerful guy with a big upper body. He’s built to play through contact in the lane, or on the line when he’s on the gridiron. Otting is attracting Division 1 attention in football, but his work in the post and midrange shouldn’t be overlooked. He’s a graceful and coordinated big man who lit up Wamego with 23 points late in last season, a glimpse of what may lay ahead.
