Kahlil Whitney has been making a name for himself on a national level for the past couple of years.  Whitney continues to get better and has shown that he is a legitimate top 50 talent (#30 in the latest NY2LA rankings) with a very high ceiling.  Whitney is having an outstanding junior campaign for the talented Roselle Catholic (New Jersey) helping lead them to a 27-9 record while averaging 15 points and 5 rebounds.  

After scoring 19 points in their sectional final victory on Thursday, he hopes to find the same success tonight when they play Ranney in the North Jersey, Non-Public B Final.
The talented 6-6 wing has a very long but strong frame and is one of the most athletic players in the country.  He has no problem meeting his opponents at the rim on both ends of the floor, and while on offense he can embarrass defenders if they decide to jump with him.  Without a doubt his athletic ability is the strongest part of his game but make no mistake he can still knock down outside shots and his range is starting to expand well beyond the arc.  He has no problem scoring with his back to the basket, and when he is found in transition it usually ends in a highlight reel type dunk.  His passing has improved a ton over the past 12-18 months because of the talent he has been surrounded with.  With all that being said, the talented wing is still a little bit raw and his best basketball is still ahead of him.  He will be making a college coach very happy in the near future.

Whitney has earned over 15 high major offers from schools including Connecticut, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kansas, LSU, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Rutgers, Saint Louis, Seton Hall, SMU, St. Johns, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and more.  Cincinnati, Depaul, and Wisconsin have been expressing interest as well among others.  

Expect that list to grow even more over the next 6-8 months as if he continues to work hard and play on a high level he can become one of the hottest 2019 recruits in the country.
