We are looking at some 2021 players that have a knack for knocking down outside shots.
Quinn Cain (6-4 PG, Hinsdale Central)
A 6-foot-4 guard, Cain has great size and toughness for a guard. He is a highly efficient standstill shooter from the perimeter, shooting 45 percent from three as a junior. That size will allow him to play either guard spot at the next level, though he looks like a sound decision maker as a primary ball-handler. Cain projects as a player that can stretch the floor and excel at the little things that help a team win.
Jacob Folkerts (6-5 PF, Glenbard South)
Folkerts is a combo forward that makes his mark as a floor spacer with length. He looks very comfortable shooting against contests and getting his shots off quickly off the catch. At 6-foot-5, he is a solid athlete that moves well in transition. He looks like a player that will continue to develop physically, both in terms of his strength and athleticism going forward.
Luke Nolan (6-2 SG, Benet)
Nolan is a sniper from three. All he needs is sliver of space to connect from the outside. A lot of players have the label of a shooter, but Nolan is automatic when left open. As a guard, his 6-foot-2 size gives him good length to shoot against size. His touch is evident on floaters and push shots in the lane. Nolan has been productive this summer and looks to be a player that can provide instant offense as a shooter.
RJ Walker (6-1 PG, Decatur Eisenhower)
A smooth-shooting point guard from Decatur Eisenhower, Walker is a threat to pull up at any moment. He possesses a one-motion shot that extends well beyond the three point and can come off the dribble or off the catch. Walker’s shooting ability opens up the rest of his game, where he is crafty getting into the paint and a capable playmaker as well. He was honorable mention All-State as a junior and is only getting stronger. Walker recently received a Division 1 offer from Idaho.
