The 2021 season starts officially with practice in 4 weeks and as we creep towards October 15th, we’ll take some time to spotlight a few players who could be difference makers for their squads this season. Here’s a look at some 2023s who could make a splash this season.

Nolan Hunter Nolan Hunter 6'5" | PF Scott | 2023 State KY , Scott - A 2 sport star that has seen some recruiting on the football field already, Hunter is an explosive power forward who is athletic enough to get out of area rebounds and finish above the rim on offense. Nolan is probably going to play football at the next level but he's good enough at basketball to see some small school offers come his way on the court too.

Marcus Eaves Marcus Eaves 6'4" | SF Hopkins County Central | 2023 State KY , Hopkins County Central - If Eaves played at a bigger program or closer to central Kentucky, his 17 point and 7 rebounds per game as a Sophomore would have gotten him more attention than he had last year. Heading into his Junior season, Marcus could average 20 and 10 and be among the best prospects in the 2nd region this season.

Aydan Hamilton Aydan Hamilton 6'5" | SG Campbell County | 2023 State KY , Campbell County - Hamilton committed to Kentucky for baseball
