Every ranking period, we try to make sure to adjust the list to reward guys who have demonstrated they deserve to move up the ranks. This summer brought five guys to our attention who merited a bump up the list.
Here are the biggest risers in this update of the 2025 Class Ranking:
, 6-foot-4 forward, 2025, Wichita Heights – #18 from #22 (4 spots):
Robinson has been an important reserve for the Falcons on their state tournament runs the past two years. But this summer, he showed a degree of versatility, skill and explosion we didn’t know he had. His limited role at Wichita Heights thus far has been to rebound and defend off the bench while contributing some offense when the opportunity presents itself. But with his club team this summer, Robinson was handling the ball from end to end, cruising in transition and slicing up defenses. He’s got a nice extension to flip the ball to the goal on the move and he is confident to pull up in the midrange for a soft jumper. He was impressively athletic this summer. Watch for Robinson to make a much bigger impact this winter.
, 6-foot guard, 2025, Washburn Rural – #26 from #36 (10 spots):
The biggest riser on the list is the Junior Blues’ guard Jones. He developed into the team’s lead point guard as the season played out, and he continued his development over the summer. His confidence with the ball and understanding of how to create shots for teammates went through the roof. He looked under control yet confident to push the tempo and attack defenses. He can get to the goal and convert acrobatic finishes when he isn’t dishing to a teammate. Jones is a long, lanky guard who is developing the strength and physicality he needs to be a top point guard in 6A.
, 6-foot-3 guard, 2025, Goodland – #28 from #37 (9 spots):
Brumbaugh has done a lot on the club scene to impress those who don’t get to see him with his Western Kansas high school. He used this summer club season to further impress with his size, skill and versatility. Brumbaugh is a big shooting guard, tall and physical. He has the skills to handle the ball end to end and to be a threat from deep. But he also has the size to get in the paint and body up. So many good players graduated from 3A, Brumbaugh emerge as one of the state’s best this year. Goodland returns a ton of good players and should make some noise this year.
, 6-foot-4 forward, 2025, Salina South – #38 from #44 (6 spots) (pictured):
We enjoyed watching the team-first, versatile big from Salina in club action this summer. He spent a lot of his time playing up with older players and his size and power allowed him to measure up. Humphrey is a big guy, but he has nice passing and perimeter skills to go with his rugged interior play. He was thrust into a lead role as a sophomore for a rebuilding team and he put up an impressive stat line. He averaged 14 points and 7 boards. The Cougars return a lot of players from a year ago, so they should be more competitive.
, 5-foot-10 guard, 2025, St. Marys – #45 from #49 (4 spots):
Hurla played more of a facilitator role for the Bears as a sophomore, getting the ball to older teammates who could score. But if you weren’t familiar with his shooting prowess prior to this summer, he put it on display for all to see. He can shoot from really deep, and his great handle allows him to get to his own shot. He also moves well without the ball to get open in the half court set. He’s not big or particularly explosive, but he’s got great skills and high IQ. Hurla will be one of the best point guards in 2A this year.
