7/11 Prospect Spotlight: 2022 Wings

Here are some 2022 wings with size that are looking to have big junior years.

Kennon Cook (6-3 SF, Dundee Crown)

Cook has a unique skill set with his power and ball-handling ability. At 6-foot-3 with the frame of a post player, he creates mismatches attacking the basket. He uses his body well to finish through contact and has a creative handle to break down defenders. As he becomes a more consistent outside shooter, he will be very difficult to guard. Cook is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Bobby Durkin (6-5 SG, Hinsdale South)

A 44 percent three-point shooter, Durkin fits the profile of a marksman with size. He has terrific arc on his shot and gets it off quickly. He is growing as a straight line driver that can score on the interior. With his grades, he is drawing attention from a number of high-academic schools. Expect a big season out of the Hinsdale South wing. Dartmouth, Princeton, and Yale have been in touch with Durkin.

Patrick Quarnstrom (6-3 SG, Champaign Central)

Quarnstrom is a strong guard that can defend and finish in traffic. A really tough on-ball defender, he competes to disrupt opposing guards. His mid-range game is solid, with a nice pull-up. He should be able to become a higher volume three-shooter with time. Quarnstrom is going to be at Champaign Central this year where he should be able to find an immediate role. The foundation of skill is there for Quarnstrom to draw more attention going forward.

Brady Ruggles (6-5 SG, Wheaton Warrenville South)

Ruggles is a smooth shooting wing with great size at 6-foot-5. When given space, he is a good shooter with range. He has his best basketball ahead of him, still improving his strength and physicality. The athletic potential is there as well, moving fluidly with or without the ball. Ruggles has slashing upside and an already productive outside stroke. Air Force and Drexel have checked in on Ruggles.
