Kevin Easley is an elite student-athlete currently attending Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Kevin is one of the most highly coveted high school prospects in the country, currently ranked the #82 player in the class of 2018 per 247Sports. The 6’6 forward had an outstanding Spring and Summer on the AAU circuit, as he displayed the versatility to play on the wing with his ability to create off the dribble and knock down perimeter jumpshots, while having the size and footwork to play the post, finish at the rim, rebound, and defend the paint. On the recruiting front, Kevin currently sits at 16 D1 offers, as college coaches no doubt would love to have a versatile 2 way combo-forward that has become a hot commodity in modern basketball.
