One of the prospects in North Dakota that hasn’t gained much traction in the way of recruiting is junior Jordyn Kahler. She is a lightning quick guard prospect who we have pegged as the 8th ranked player in the 2020 class. Kahler is in line for a lot of interest in this season because of her versatility and shooting ability. She would be a solid small school prospect with a definite opportunity to come in and contribute to a college program right away.
The Wahpeton High School standout has only received emails with college interest but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been thinking about college. Kahler tells me that she wants to attend a college that is close to home. With a wealth of solid college programs in the states surrounding her, that might be easier than she imagined. Kahler’s game is attractive to college coaches because they are able to utilize her in so many different ways.
Kahler is a knockdown shooter who also isn’t afraid to go into the lane to score points. She’s very active on both ends of the floor and regularly turns steals into points on the other end. She is only 5’8 but has enormous length and creates havoc on the defensive end of the floor. One of the best things that I see in Kahler’s game is her ability to move without the ball. She is constantly moving and trying to get an open look. Doing this she frees up her teammates for better shots since she commands so much attention.
She couples her scoring ability on the offensive end with her solid passing. Kahler knows the game really well and you can count on her to find the open man if she can’t get to her shot. She is a good ball handler with the ability to go either way. Coaches are able to have a lot of trust in her as she can take the ball up the floor easily against pressure.
Right now, she is working on getting better on defense and is always working on her ball handling, specifically under pressure. Once Kahler masters these two skills, she will be nearly unstoppable. Her defense and handling is already solid but once they are at the next level she could transform into a very sought after player. Kahler is a shooter who can really fill it up at all three levels, but in reality she is the full package for a college coach.
