6/16 Prospect Spotlight: 2021 Wings

We are looking at 2021 wings and guards who are scoring weapons with good positional size.

Ian Burns (6-6 SF, New Trier)

Burns is a floor spacing small forward that sprays threes from all over the perimeter. He has solid playmaking feel, especially off of penetration where his size gives him an advantage with his vision. As a big wing, his length is useful on the defensive end to disrupt passing lanes. His shooting is going to get coaches in the gym, but he does a lot of things to fit in various college systems.

John Poulakidas (6-6 SG, Neuqua Valley)

Poulakidas is a lefty wing that is an elite shot creator and shot maker. He is able to lift up over defenders at 6-foot-6 and display touch off a number of different releases. His stop-and-pop game is reliable and his set shot from three is effortless. He is a legitimate big guard who has shown promise operating in pick-and-rolls. All signs point to him being an early impact player in college, wherever he ends up. Poulakidas has been one of the most heavily recruiting players in the 2021 class for good reason.

AJ Storr (6-5 SG, Kankakee)

Storr broke out as a junior, earning honorable mention All-State honors. He’s got good size and strength for a wing. When you add in how hard he plays, you can understand why he is so productive. Storr is a tough, attacking guard that is a constant threat in transition. He is an impact defender and excellent rebounder for his position. Coming back to a Kankakee team returning a lot of talent, he should have more opportunities to attract college attention.

Aryton Temcio (6-4 SG, Glenbard South)

Temcio is a fluid athlete that has good footwork, scoring upside, and versatility. At 6-foot-4, he is more of a combo guard than a wing, showing fundamental playmaking ability and feel for setting up teammates. He can consistently separate from defenders off the dribble to get to his mid-range shot. Off of rotations, he stays shot ready and is capable of hitting from three. Truman State has offered Temcio and other D2/D3 schools should target a player that is still scratching the surface of his potential.

Jaden Terrell (6-5 SG, Wheeling)

Terrell is a long, athletic wing that can control the game in multiple ways. He is a good three-point shooter, a quick slasher, and an unselfish passer with good vision. There are flashes of his ability to create in isolation situations as well. Looking at his instincts and physical makeup, Terrell should develop into an elite defender at the next level. The lanky lefty is a team player that has a lot of talent to work with going forward. Arkansas Little Rock and Detroit are among the D1 schools that are pursuing Terrell.
