Saw BUD CRAWFORD (SR) 6’8” play as a JR, he has gotten bigger, but he needs the JC route and could be a good project on to a 4-year school …
MONTE KEMP (JR) 6’7” is long and lanky with decent bounce at the rim (and no build at all similar to Whisner’s). Just skilled enough, as he’s able to produce at a higher level, this team will take off and rocket towards the top of the standings …

ALEX BANASSI (JR) 6’2”, CADEN MCGUIRE (JR) 6’0”, and BRYCEN LARUE (JR) 6’2” give the Tigers an all 2022 backcourt and there is no shortage of overall skills from these three fellas. Very solid with a high basketball IQ and certainly they look the part in terms of making shots. All three of them are scholarship somehow-somewhere-someway if they work hard at it for the next 12 months!

MAX WHISNER (JR) 6’7” with D1 football offers at Indiana, Iowa, Kansas State, Kansas, Missouri, et al has a torn labrum in his shoulder. He’ll be back for AAU with KC Run GMC. Big strong TE-DE body with good character and great work ethic.
