As 2021 prospects go there are a number of highly regarded ones already making themselves household names from coast to coast.  That being said there a number of hungry up and coming ones with elite national potential that are on the cusp of taking a big leap.  Springfield Kickapoo (MO) standout Anton Brookshire is one who fits that description right now.

A 6-2 160 plus pound guard, Brookshire checks all the boxes both physically and skill wise for a young elite guard and instinctively he’s already extremely advanced.  Perimeter wise he handles it well, has excellent vision, his passes are timely and in rhythm, and he has the ability to breakdown opposing guards off the bounce in half court sets or in transition to score or create.  Finishing wise he can do so at every level with a smooth and efficient perimeter stroke that extends beyond the arc but can also be knocked down at the middle range level off the pull up.  As good as his skill is right now the talented guard checks even more boxes off the court.  A strong student, Anton is a quiet unassuming leader who generals by example and brings a lot of quality intangibles to the court.  Schools are already taking notice.

After collecting an early offer from UNLV he’s also added the same from Missouri State, Tennessee State, and UW-Milwaukee.  Kansas State and Missouri are a couple of the other schools also showing interest for the talented sophomore who’s just scratching the surface.  Far from a finished product, look for Brookshire to continue to trend upward as he’s flashed elite national potential and based off an early body of work he looks and feel the part of a high major talent whose recruiting trail will fill up substantially over the next couple of years and for good reason because the young man can really go on the hardwood.

Brookshire plays with the Yanders Law program during the grassroots travel season.
