There were some fine Kansas wings in the 17U bracket of the Jayhawk Jam, including some 2025s who were playing up.
Here’s a list of some who stood out (in alphabetical order):
Brumbaugh is building on a really good sophomore season by playing up, and at the Jayhawk Jam he showed a lot of versatility and athleticism. He’s got a lot of guard skills and can play big as well. He is really good at grabbing a rebound and turning it up the court quickly. Brumbaugh is solid from beyond the arc and is really good at putting it on the floor to get to midrange opportunities.
A well-built sophomore, Humphrey jumps out as a guy who combines size and strength with perimeter skills. He’s a physical presence even when playing up against older opponents. Humphrey is effective on the perimeter and has a nice stroke. His size lets him shoot over defenders or get in the paint to battle for boards or post up. Humphrey showed at the Jayhawk Jam that he’s a versatile and talented big.
After a really good playoff run with Moundridge, Moddelmog is now ready to become a leading man after supporting older studs the last couple of years. He’s got a mature build and a grown up game. He is effective well beyond the arc and draws defenders way out. Moddelmog is tough in the paint as a physical defender and rebounder.
Perry is a shooter who can get the ball off in a flash. He doesn’t need much space and he’s got good size to shoot over defenders. Perry got great experience last year with his high school team, and now he’s challenging himself against older, athletic opponents. He’s a selfless passer and heady defender.
Athlete. Phillips can run and jump with just about anyone, and he really stood out at the Jayhawk Jam for some highlight plays. His athleticism plays on defense and he is really a problem in the transition game. He blocks shots and gobbles up rebounds, and has the game to push it in the open court and to catch and shoot from deep.
