Finally! Our new and improved site is up and functional and ready for content to flow once again. Just in time for basketball season I may add!!! Well over the summer we had our annual Future50 camp once again and this time under a new format! We had two fantastic days full of competition and fun. I want to issue my sincerest apologies that it took so long to get the everything up but here is who stood out on the Boys side of the camp!
Noah Thornhill 5’5 Lebanon 2026
Thornhill’s basketball IQ was one of the best at the Future50 camp. He excelled in the live period of the camp where he was able to show his playmaking ability. He was passing teammates open and getting them the ball consistently. I was very impressed with the poise Noah showed and cant wait to see what he does for the Jackets moving forward!
Kaden Cole 5’6 Aurora 2027
Kaden has already looked good and the scary thing is, he has plenty of room to grow. He comes from a basketball family and have already looks to have a good foundation for his game. He is only an 8th grader and he held his own against some of the older competition in the camp. Cole has a fluid shot that will continue to get better as he gets older. Coach Thornhill has a ton of talent coming through the system and Cole will be a fantastic piece here in a few years.
Keaton Holter 5’9 Marshfield 2026
Holter showed some really good things all camp long. He has good length for a freshman and will continue to grow. He already has a good shot and with some work here the next couple years, you can expect him to be a big time player for Marshfield for years to come.
Despite all the losses the Chiefs have endured the last few years, the program is still in great hands. Rubidoux looks to be another high upside combo guard. However, I project him to add on a few more inches in the next three years and could become a shooting three. He is going to make his living beyond the three point line as he flashed his range all camp long. He has a smooth stroke and has a knack for finding the bottom of the net. He also showed a good collection of moves in the midrange and kept knocking them down. Look for Rubidoux to quickly become one of the better shooters and all around scorers in SWMO.
Caleb Fenske 5’10 Neosho 2026
Caleb is a pass first guard who excels in the X’s and O’s and the intricacies of the game for just a freshman this year. Fenske is a solid point guard and his high IQ provides him a valuable tool that will let him see the court early in his high school career.
Cannon Thornhill 5’11 Aurora 2026
Cannon is one of my favorite freshman in this years class. I mentioned talking about Kaden Cole that Coach Adam Thornhill have some exciting prospects coming to the Dawgs in the next few years. The most exciting of which is the coaches son. Cannon is an extremely high IQ hybrid three that can get it done on all levels. He has a pure shot and is rarely off target. Where his stock rose the most came on the defensive side of the ball. He was a constant nuisance on the ball the last two days and proved he can be a lockdown defender when needed. He is a star in the making and the Big 8 will have four years to get very acquainted with Thornhill.
Kalib Butts 6’0 Clever 2025
Kalib stood out almost immediately just from his size and athleticism as the lone sophomore from the camp. The promising thing about Butts is that he still has plenty of room for his game to grow. The Bluejays will have a new look come 2022-2023 with the arrival of Coach Kline from Cassville but he has a promising sophomore ready to dominate the paint.
Carter Fenske Neosho 2023
Carter stood out with his athletic ability throughout the camp. He was able to knockdown shots from the midrange but stood out driving to the bucket. Fenske was physically imposing among his peers and he learned how to use his body to his advantage throughout the camp. There is a ton to like about Fenske’s game and it will be interesting to where he fits after a good graduating class from Neosho.
Caden Kowal 5’7 Camdenton 2023
Caden showed flashes of being a very good player last year with Camdenton a year ago and it looks like he could be taking the next step this offseason. Kowal is an efficient scorer that excels from the midrange out to the three point line. What was interesting at the camp was seeing him learn how to use his body to get to the bucket against some smaller competitors. Now come OC play, he wont be able to bang in the post consistently with some of the monsters the conference has to offer but having the ability in the back pocket will only benefit him come season time.
