The Senior class is about to kick off their final season of high school basketball and many of the best prospects will be signing their letters of intent to their college of choice next month. The class has seen a lot of talent defect from it over the last 9 months or so but it’s still one of the best Kentucky has seen in a while. Here’s a look at the top post players in our updated Senior rankings. This does not include any players ranked in the top 10 in the class. This list also doesn’t include PFs who play primarily on the wing or as stretch bigs. Those will be covered in another article.
Trent is going to be a steal for whichever school signs him. At 6’8 and long and athletic, Edwards is a big time rim protector on defense. On the offensive end, Trent is able to score at all three levels and is comfortable putting the ball on the floor and attacking the rim when he catches a mismatch. Edwards is a D1 talent for sure.
Robby has taken his game up several notches over the course of his high school career and will be a contributor at whatever school he signs with. Todd has evolved from being an old school 5 man to showing he can pick and pop or put the ball on the floor when the opportunity presents itself.
Crew, like Todd and Edwards has been under-recruited up to this point in his career. Gibson is a legit 6’8 forward who can score with his back to the basket but prefers to play facing the basket. At 6’8, Crew is a skilled player and an above average passer at his position.
Brooks is a high academic 5 man who has an array of post moves and is comfortable shooting from range but can be guilty of settling for jumpers sometimes. Caleb has become a much better rebounder in the last year or so and is a very effective rim protector and rebounder. His recruiting should pick up.
Biggers could eventually transition to a wing player but with his big body and ability to move, he’s an effective post player who could make an impact at the NAIA or D2 level right now. Jaden is comfortable catching and shooting from range and has become a more confident ball handler in the last 18 months or so.
