Jadis Jones | New Madrid County Central | Class of 2024 | Wing
Jones is a man-child freshman at the currently undefeated NMCC school. He already possesses a 6’5 frame with good strength and excellent leaping ability. Around the rim he makes quick moves, and excels on driving out of the triple threat. Jones gets to the free throw line often where he shoots a great percentage. With most of the season complete, Jones appears to be one of, if not the best freshman in the show me state.
Rico Coleman | Charleston | Class of 2023 | Wing
Coleman is a long and wiry wing/guard. He’s growing into a 6’4 frame and has long strides combined with a daunting wingspan for opponents. He’s active and gets into passing lanes on defense, but also runs a lot of the offense for his team. He’s slithery with the ball and is able to shake defenders easily. From the perimeter he’s comfortable rising into his jump shot and keeps the defense honest by attacking all spaces on the floor. Coleman already possesses a Division 1 offer and if he continues to grow with his length and athleticism, he could become a major prospect within the state.
Kael Combs | Nixa | Class of 2023 | Guard
Combs sets himself apart from the rest with his natural tools. He’s an extremely explosive guard who drives to the basket with grace at 6’3. The lefty gets out in transition and puts constant pressure on the defense with his speed. He invites contact and uses his body well when shielding taller defenders. Right now he’s more of an off-guard who works on the wing than a pure point guard. Solid prospect with a lot of things you just can’t teach. Combs holds an offer from Missouri State.
