6/17 Prospect Spotlight: 2021 Shooters

We are looking at shooters with good size at multiple positions from the 2021 class.

Connor Barnett (6-3 PG, Fulton)

Barnett is an active scorer at the point guard spot with a nice looking outside stroke from three. He is a creative player off the dribble, either in isolations or pick-and-rolls. There is no hesitation when pulling up behind a screen, forcing defenders to press up on him coming off of picks. Barnett is a crafty finisher with flair as a passer. He is looking to build on an honorable mention All-State season.

Dylan Fuzak (6-9 C, Geneva)

Playing the coveted stretch five role, Fuzak has been receiving a lot of interest over the last few weeks. As a 6-foot-9 big, he draws out shot blockers with his ability to knock down outside jump shots. Fuzak is going to thrive in pick-and-roll systems that allow him to slip screens and find space behind the arc. He’s got good size that college coaches will be eager to work with on the block and defensively. Fuzak has been offered by Quincy, Roosevelt, and a handful of other D3/NAIA programs.

Connor Jenkins (6-7 SG, Lincoln Way West)

A big two guard, Jenkins does a little bit of everything. From playmaking, to rebounding, to scoring on the move. All that being said, Jenkins is at his best shooting the ball. His high release makes it very difficult for defenders to affect his shot and he gets good lift. Jenkins is comfortable handling the ball in space, making good use of driving opportunities when teams are worried about his shooting. Quincy has recently offered Jenkins, who is a unique shooting guard prospect at 6-foot-7.

Luke Moustakas (6-8 PF, Brother Rice)

Standing at 6-foot-8, Moustakas is a floor spacing big with improving post skills. Most of his production comes off of drive-and-kicks and swings in the half court, but he is also a capable shooter in transition that has skills on the perimeter. With so much size, he is going to be able to contest shots in his area effectively. College coaches will be intrigued by his potential to operate at both interior positions while providing consistent shooting.  Northern Michigan and Indiana Tech have offered.

Aidan Murphy (6-6 SF, Glenbard West)

Murphy has a compact, high-arching jump shot that is going to be a substantial asset at the college level at 6-foot-6. He catches the ball ready to get into his shot, wasting little movement. Murphy has the broad shoulders and frame that should allow him to pack on muscle as he matures. As he becomes more comfortable putting the ball on the floor, the added strength will become more valuable. With his length and commitment, he is a solid defensive player as well. A tremendous student, Murphy is being pursued by a number of high-academic D3 schools.
