Prep Hoops Missouri just released its newly updated Class of 2023 rankings. Here is a look at the first group of top wing players in the Class of 2023.
6’4″ Kickapoo: The explosive wing player had his coming out party in last year’s Class 6 state semifinals when he scored 15 points in a victory over Chaminade. He followed up with a big summer grassroots season while playing up with the Missouri Flight 17Us. His burgeoning talent and big upside have earned him scholarship offers from Marquette, Kansas State and his hometown Missouri State.
6’7″ Bolivar (pictured): The versatile standout led Bolivar to the Class 5 state championship game as a junior. He then enjoyed a nice summer for an excellent MoKan Elite 16U team. He then had a pair of productive games with the MoKan Elite 17Us at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam. He does it all for Bolivar as he averaged xx points, xx rebounds, and xx assists while being the team’s primary ball handler.
6’6″ Vashon: A very skilled and versatile wing playerwho played inside for much of his sophomore season on a very guard-heavy Vashon team that won a Class 4 state championship. He still proved to be a very capable 3-point shooter last season and during the summer with MoKan Elite. He is also a very reliable ball handler and playmaker who can facilitate offense and make decisions. He’ll have the ball in his hands much more this season for the Wolverines.
6’4″ Nixa: An athletic lefty guard who will be a stalwart on one of the top Class 6 teams in the state this season. He is explosive enough to play above the rim and he can handle the ball and slash to the basket very effectively. He compliments it all with a nice jumper. He was also an excellent player for the MoKan Elite 16U squad. He is also having an excellent year in football as a wide receiver.
6’3″ St. Joe Lafayette: The All-State performer is one of the most physical wing players in the state. He was dominant scorer throughout the summer for his 816 Hoops team. His athleticism and physical strength enabled him to bully his way to the basket whenever he wanted to. His 3-point shooting is also starting to emerge which will make him an even more formidable offensive weapon.
6’3″ Park Hill South: A strong wing guard who is one of the best in the Kansas City area. He is a three-level scoring threat who has the strength and quickness to break down defenders in the lane with the perimeter shooting ability to go along with it. As a sophomore, he averaged 12 points, four rebounds and three assists while shooting a sizzling 50 percent from 3-point range.
. 6’2″ Parkview: A very stout shooting guard who is capable of creating buckets from just about anywhere on the court. He has shooting range that extends well beyond the 3-point line, but he can also create off the dribble with his physical strength and ball handling ability to score at all three levels.
