The 2020 class in Washington is widely known for its bigs, but there is some quality wings worth noting. Each of the four girls below are versatile players that have a mixture of size, perimeter skills and basketball IQ. Some college coaches are already checking in on these players, but all of them remain uncommitted at this time.
2020 Wings to Watch:
Kendyl Carson, 6’0, SF, Prairie HS- The 6 foot wing transferred to Prairie High School (Vancouver, WA) by way of Juneau-Douglas in Alaska. She is capable of playing the two or three position and will be recruited as such at the collegiate level. Although known for being a scorer at Juneau-Douglas, she is able to focus on impacting the game in other ways at Prairie, thanks to legitimate size and depth on the team. Kendyl played on Tree of Hope’s 16u team this last spring and summer and will join the 17u team next spring. With good size for her position and a solid skill set, Vancouver, WA has yet another college prospect in the area.
MeiLani McBee, 5’10, SF, Kennewick HS- MeiLani is a fine three-point shooter and a heady passer. She is one of the best players in the Tri-Cities area due to her basketball IQ, shooting ability and natural strength. A legitimate college prospect that will play at the next level. Prep Girls Hoops expects a breakout year at the high school level, as she has always competed on the summer circuit at a really high level.
Grace Erdmann, 6’1, SF, Cashmere HS- Grace is right around 6’1, but her arms are much longer. She has elite length and uses it to alter shots and deflect passes on a regular basis. She has developed perimeter skills in the last couple years and that will suit her well at the next level. She gives Cashmere some much needed length and her contributions will be key for the Bulldogs, who have placed second in 1A in back-to-back years.
Olivia Wikstrom 6’0, SF, Bainbridge HS- The Bainbridge High School star is having a big year early on! She put up a school record 44 points in a win over Olympic. She is quickly developing into a lethal scorer with her length and skills that she has worked extremely hard at improving. The Way to Win basketball club produces college players every year and Olivia will be one of the next players in line.
